Back again with more Prot War vs Bear DPS questions
Before I start I want to thank the guys that gave me advice about this topic on my last thread.
The issue that I had was that I was tanking with a Bear tank that had way higher gear than me and I was unable to get close to her on the DPS charts. Since then I've geared up to be within 3 points of her - she is 570 and I am 567. Even though I've closed the gap I can't come close to competing with her in DPS and threat. I've linked a log from our last raid and I took on board everything that Tengenstein said (about my previous post) and tried to improve. I've had a good jump in DPS but I still can't compete with her. Am I smashing my head against a brick wall or is there a black and white discrepancy between the dps put out by a bear and a prot warrior?
Our team is progressing through heroics at the moment, 3/14 (woot for us) and there aren't any problems with the team per se but I can't help but feel like a third wheel as I am basically acting as a terrible dps until the boss fights. In situations where there are groups of mobs I will start tanking some of them and she will taunt them off of me because I assume it's easier to have all the aggro than track which mobs are loose and which are on the dps. If we both charge the same group of mobs I can get the initial aggro but gradually she will generate threat and take that aggro off of me. As soon as that happens and my vengeance starts to drop I lose threat and then I can't catch up without taunting.
I've been using intervene to get some damage and to try to keep up vengeance on some fights but it's not really worth it on the trash mobs as they go down so fast and the last thing anyone wants is for me to separate my mobs from the pack (which is the only way that I can come up with to stop losing threat) as we would lose a lot of dps due to lost cleave strikes.
Hopefully someone has the time to respond.
Thanks in advance.
