Is it possible to gauge how much DPS loss you get from lower ping? The new net i have now is sitting at around at least 180 ms jumping around from 40 to 150 - 180 - 350. If i understand correctly, high ping means a delay between the action you make when you press a button and when it actually "happens" in game.

If you're talking about pve, try looking at the diffference in apm between two parses of the same spec, one with lag one without. The difference in dps should be relative to the difference in apm, since everything else(rotation,stats) will be the same. not sure how well it will work, but theoretically it should.

You can queue actions, so in most cases, where you're just rotating, it should make no difference.

you wont have real lag till you start hitting 1k pings. 350 isn't bad.
