Way back when, if you wanted dots, you played a lock. Why does every class (monks too?) have to use them to max dps? Mages, priests, pallies, rogues, hunters, warriors, etc. all have bleeds or other dots to maintain and to me, it's a nuisance. Aren't auto attacks similar enough to dots for melee?
Can't we maintain sustained dps in other ways?

If anything, it's the opposite. Not having your DoTs up/refreshing them sparingly will result in lower dps who is managing them correctly.
Dots haven't really been shadow's thing for a while now. Shadow now is way too procc-y and nuke-y to feel like a true dot class. Hell, the dots hit for next to nothing, and are best used to proc more nukes.
Wat? Just because for Multi-DoT reasons VT and SW:P aren't hitting as hard in comparison to others does not mean they blow. We're still shooting for really high uptime because it is a significant part of our DPS and always has been.
When did I say that Aff wasn't DoT-y? We do also have two DoTs, a channeled filler DoT and a 'CD' DoT though :P
