Let me preface this by saying that there a many different opinions on what good parenting is and this is just my way of incorporating WoW and gaming in general in to my new life.

After the break I will go into a few steps that can help improve your DPS with getting new gear or needing to have better gear then everyone else.

1) Dont stand in the fire, or the cookies tornadoes, walls of death or anything else that cause a insurmountable amount of damage really quickly. Also in this category and it applies to probably 90% of Dragons in the game don't stand in front of or behind the Dragon
