    You ARE an MM, they arent the best tankers. Tho i would suggest mastery... Mastery increases damage making u get a higher damage output. Resistance only gives u the ability to lower damage on you, tho there are so many resistances and its 2 pricy to cover all area's

    Earth Mastery increases:

    Fire At Will
    Pulse shot
    Extreme Sniping
    Aim Shot (Precision)

    Fire mastery increases;

    Mind Flaying Bullet
    Soul Snipe
    Rake of Fury (Burst)
    Soul Discharge (Soul)
    Burst of Rage (Soul)


    :/ MFB is the best MM move there is

    I actually find myself using Soul Snipe and rake of fire more than anything else in PvP. MFB's 2 sec cast makes me not want to use it quite as much as it roots me for too long. Soul snipe has the chance to stun too, which is invaluable. Rake hits multiple targets as well. But this is all tree dependent. If they spec'd precision, they need the earth mastery. If you are soul/burst, I suggest fire.

    You means that penetrating shot is not enhanced by any mastery?
    Also, what about that Exorcising Bullet skill? (strangely it was buggy somehow and did not appear on the skill trainer, but it was mentioned in the talent tree)

    Actually -- how do we know this is true? Has anyone gone and used one skill on one mob, recorded the hit points; then raised a respective Mastery one level and repeated? I mean right now how do we know how much Mastery impacts a skill? Has anyone done tests and logged the results?

    I have the pet skill Flame Boost II on my pet which raises my fire mastery by 60 and I can assure you it makes a difference. No, I havent logged the results, but yes it is a noticeable difference.

    Easy test...

    Hit mob with preferred skill, depending on your tree so if you're precision Aimed Shot, if Soul/Burst use MFB.

    Then remove your offhand, assuming you have an ok offhand with your main mastery on it (example I'm burst an my offhand has fire mastery) and hit the same mob again with the same skill... Notice the giant damage reduction?

    There's your answer~
