Here it goes.

Group setup is a follows.

  Shadow Knight, Ranger, troub, 2 healers and an illusionist.

Troub cast UpBeat tempo (UBT) on sk saying that its more beneficial on him than the illi

  The SK is undergeared and does about 30-40k dps

  The illusionist is better geared and does 80-100k dps (gains 20+k AFTER UBT)

Now the question is which character whould benefit the most from upbeat tempo.

I dont know much about SK, do they realy benefit from UBT and to the point to cast it on him even if there is a mage in the group ?

Thanks for your imput.

If it adds more total DPS to the Illy than it does to the SK then put it on the Illy, if it adds more PS to the SK than it adds to the Illy then put it on the SK. Gear is a lot player capability is a good bit in itself as well.

All actions have consequences and repercussions.

Its not ONLY about dps. If UBT adds more dps to the illy it will mean he draws even more hate and pulls the mob off the tank,,,which is probably happening without UBT on the illy given that group make up and an undergeared SK. More dps is not always a good thing....how much dps is the illy doing while dead?

Faster recast and faster casting means big hate control stuff is up faster plus alittle extra dps to help keep agro off that illy and ranger.

Class Benefits from Upbeat tempo as follows, Warlock > Necro > Shadowknight > yourself > Dirges > Furys > Wardens

just follow that order, usually you'll find one of them in your group mostly
