T4 -> T5 theat jump?
So, I transferred to a new guild and they're taking good care of me so far, and tonight was my first real raid with them, and I got to tank with the other guild tanks and it went pretty smooth, but I noticed something. One of the Warrior tanks was pulling 1.3k+ TPS on his tank target, and I was thoroughly impressed, but wondered if was just the difference in gear? Right now he's in 4/5 T5 with the Brutalizer and Kaz's shield. I'm still sitting in some T4, and can usually hit around 1.1k TPS if I push hard enough, but usually don't get enough rage to do it on trash. Is the transition from T4 to T5 really that huge of an upgrade in threat? I have a fair amount of hit and expertise thanks to 2.3, so hit rating isn't a huge issue.
My rotation is basically, SS, Revenge, Devastate x3/4, rinse, repeat. Depending on whether or not I have the DPS on my target, I'll usually use a trinketed SS. Liberal usage of Thunderclaps, too.
