Only incidentally. As a hybrid sniper, I really like having another target close to my primary so that I can AoE DoT both at once. It's basically free energy, and the meter padding is just gravy.

My raid group does spend a lot of time AoEing the Dread Guard though, even on hard mode. The reason for this is to smooth tank swaps for the melee during the second phase. We keep the tanks very close together so that the bosses don't move during a swap, which means (by extension) that Ciphas and Kel'sara remain within AoE range of each other. Specs which have incidental AoE (hybrid/lethality or engineering snipers, rage marauders, lightning sorcs, etc) benefit the most from this sort of thing.
