That doesn't help for sure, but even if I burn from 100% with perfect sync from group, I just don't get the 200k+ dps (for that duration) - it never happens. I don't think she has debuffs on at that stage, but maybe I'm wrong. It's hard to see them in the dozens of other debuffs & dots. As for entire encounter, my experience is otherwise. Rogues can do "OK", but we're still dominated by casters on the overall bit. Agreed if we exclude Tita then rogues do well (but the Tita bit is such a skew to casters that it makes their overall significantly ahead too). We haven't beaten 5, but of the 6 other events (including two one-offs) I can't think of one that it's better to be melee on than caster. It'd be interesting to see the combined whole-night parses for the top guilds where they clear everything in the same night. This will definitely skew it towards burst classes more as if you have sufficient dps to kill the entire lot in a single evening then the fights are clearly MUCH shorter than ours (favouring burst over sustained).
