If I had to decide only one I would go Watchman but top Sentinels respecc from boss to boss because different boss require different things. (Note, I'm far from "top" Sentinel" so I might be wrong)

"Best" is subjective. Basing your raid spec decisions on dummy parses is never a good idea. Pick the spec you like the most and run with it; learn to adapt and adjust your strategy accordingly, and you'll do fine. My Sentinel is, always has been, and always shall be, Combat because I greatly enjoy the style and gameplay; and he has done just fine in DF/DP HM.

I will, however, second Adaliaya in saying that the best players will swap on a fight-by-fight basis, especially since current content mechanics change boss to boss such that each spec has its own niche encounter(s). Single-target burn fights (like Nefra, Tyrans) will very heavily favor Watchman, while frenetic target-swap/add fights (like Brontes, Bestia) will favor Combat or Focus.

Agreed. However, until they put in dual-spec feature I prefer not switching specs between bosses. It's a pain and carnage is much more fun than annihilation so I stick with that full time.
