2) You can't really depend on roll damage
3) Spec is really really bad againts low hp targets, also swapping is tricky. If you swap right before reapplying dots, its ok, but if you swap in second part of rotation, your Hemorraging Blast has to be replaced with basic attack, which is meh

Anyway, 1 >>>>> 2 and 3. With no other slingers/scoundrels in raid, df can do wonders
1 is mostly a parsing issue, though, and not losing much raid-wide dps, right? As in, you're contributing extra dps to someone else's parse while losing it from yours. (Admittedly, it's likely their dots and not their wounding shots that is eating up the stacks, which is somewhat worse.)

[I'm aware this is a parsing thread, not a raid-wide dps thread. ]
