I too have played a geared Saleana in BDN... I know very well how much damage they can deal. All I dispute is the term "top Elemental DPS"
1. Lesser i-frames does mean lesser DPS windows. Whether it is lesser DPS or not is always relative, but having lesser windows is definite. Have I claimed that blink isn't sufficient to survive?
2. Have you seen Crusader and Raven during Time Acceleration?
3. You have a geared Saleana running with...? For geared parties, Dedicated Crow and Dance 2 is not 5% of raid DPS windows, it is over half of it at least. = =" Regardless of whether Burning Hand procs, it doesn't change anything? Determining DPS potential in a raid is better served by ignoring contributions from other classes?
4. Please explain to me how it is very overpowered, compared to what light and dark can do? Why should Crusader use Ele Aura instead of Light? I know the fire line-up thank you very much. I am unsure what people are thinking when they think the fire attack buffs and fire resist reduction are actually on par with what dark/light have access to.
I have no doubt Saleana is very high DPS. As I said, I am just curious why someone thinks Saleana is worthy of the term "top Elemental DPS". I have never seen equal geared Raven and Saleana come close to rivalling each other on the DPS parser, in fact, there are quite a few classes (Adept, both Bringers, Crusader to name the most common) who routinely do much more than Saleana.
