"The boss died, and no party deaths... but you guys killed him in 5 minutes as opposed to 3. DPS Metre is definitely needed." =\
If Everyone is focused on dodging and not doing enough damage, it will take longer. Don't need a "metre" to tell you that.
DPS meter won't help somebody do more damage. Efficient dodging pattern to get back into a safe position will.
Who is doing the most = Who Cares
Who is doing the least = The Priest or Mystic
These are things that anybody who has eyeballs can tell without that silly tool.
This DPS Meter is so people can stroke E-Peen in game and on forum. This is so the same simpletons can make videos like this:
It promotes number padding, macro'ing, and cheating not task completion. It promotes DPS based dungeon drop prejudice. It has more social cons than pros.
The OP might want it personally for good reasons but is clearly not thinking about how it can be abused. Go figure out how to find the information you need and run it through an excel spread sheet or something. Share it amongst your guild mates. Those variables do NOT need to be thrown in to the game GUI.
