Yea I can pretty much consistantly get top damage also but thats all aoe damage ,and we all know aoe dps doesn't kill things.Our single target lacks severly.I personally prefer lightning over madness, but lightning itself is complete garbage.So now im stuck going hybrid.
I wasn't aware AOE damage didn't kill things. I could have sworn it did.
Try full madness. I like the 2-second root from Creeping Terror on low cooldown. Death field, mind crush, shock hits pretty hard. I have no problem one-on-one against most classes.
