I can agree with that, the easy to grasp rotation isn't too far behind the more refined one, but the more refined one is definitely a noticeable improvement :P

The Mastered Version vs. Non-Mastered Version doesn't differ a lot on dummy.

But in combat with real bosses, knowing what to do when to do where to do makes difference between a NiM DPS and trash DPS.

As for PvP ppl taking off, it's not exacctly true.

Community leaders like Nibbon, for example, left far as back as that "heal to full" debacle.

Vanguards vanished from the face off the map.

Almost all shadow proponents took off after buffs were shown to be not enough.

Only now certain PvPers are feeling the after effects.

again. Thanks."

I think the main reason is the non mastered version has a FAR more aggressive execute, so if you get lucky dispatch crits it's relatively even with the Mastered version, but personally the mastered version just tends to have far more stable DPS and keening procs.
