Ask me anything Arsenal Merc related and I can give you all the math behind it... ask me anything about Marauders and I can tell you they use lightsabers... I'm more of a one class wonder.

Our marauder is Annihilation. I'm in the process of leveling one that I'll transfer my jugg's gear over to and that will be in Carnage. We're the only 2 mdps.

Any reason you would play Carnage over Annihilation?

(there's some strong language, this fight will evoke that.)
Oh, I will also say that I have a tremendous amount of respect for you guys, and really anyone who has cleared it on 16 man. Not just for the kill, but for the wipes. You stuck it out, didn't murder each other out of frustration, and came out of it with the humility and good humor to share the experience with the community as a whole. Most people just brag about their kill times and throw around screenshots as if they always one-shot every boss.

I am the Annihilation Marauder, and I am also one of those people pushing about 2100-2200 dps on tanks. Fully 63, and have all datachrons/companion buffs possible.

I think Ark would run Carnage because he is more comfortable with it (not saying he is incapable of playing annihilation) he just likes the play style and burst damage more. I changed to annihilation after the initial change to gores timing, and I haven't looked back.

I tell you one thing, after all of those attempts, pushing for every inch of dps that you can possibly glean from a fight definitely makes you work out any lingering issues about your spec, or helps you focus on how to play it better.

It's definitely over tuned, but I can agree that I had a fantastic but arduous time during Tanks,

Yeah i love Watchman, definitely the most fun spec. Combat has nice big numbers but i don't think it is as useful in raids tbh.

Tanks changed me. I don't know if it was for better or worse.

There's a couple of reasons I go Carnage over Annihilation.
Theoretically, the two specs do nearly identical damage. Enough so that the major reason to choose one over the other is really personal preference. As Kitchen said, I prefer Carnage's play style and I'm better at it to the tune of about 100 DPS in dummy parsing.
Beyond that, I feel that the current crop of raids favors burst damage and no spec in the game really matches the controlled burst a Carnage marauder provides aside from Rage (and then only when 3+ targets are grouped).
