I'm currently pulling roughly 18k-21k as Arcane in raid finder/ normal 10 man DS. I know I could pull higher dps if I switched to fire but, I feel like I'm going to miss when i need to use Combustion or miss something because of my lag i get. Should I just switch over and try it out or stay arcane?
If I'm pulling 18-21k as Arcane what could my Fire dps been roughtly?http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/bloodhoof/Poww/advanced

As you can see, we have very similar gear level (385 equipped).
I haven't run DS on normal yet, only LFR (my guild is too casual, and my schedule doesn't allow me to find pugs).
Anyways, my computer lags pretty bad in LFR too, so in the interface settings, I usually set my custom latency to 200ms, before I go in. I think it helps a bit (I saw a 5-6k dps gain using that setting). my actually latency is around 70, but I set it higher to compensate for the lag.
On Ultra I average around 23k. On Deathwing (anywhere between 38k - 60k, averaging 47k by the end of the fight).
Lag is a huge issue, and I definitely think it is possible that I miss prime times to use combustion...
additionally, Fire can sometimes be a pain in the butt waiting for Hot Streak
But anyways, you should just try it. That is the best way to see how you will actually perform.
