Capitalize. Also, why not look at the numbers to determine? Talking about how you feel about abilities won't move the discussion anywhere.
i think the question is a little more complicated than that - though potentially only so based solely on the particulars of one's rot and general play style. it's an issue that i've been pondering lately as well, as a matter of fact, and would love some input on.
If this is not the question you were asking, I apologize. It seemed like you were asking if taking the point out of UB and putting it into Morbidity would be a DPS gain. It doesn't appear as if it would be. At least not on a tank-and-spank. 1 point for approximately 1% DPS is pretty strong, IMO.
i'm using a 0/17/54 with one significant change from what is recommended here: i've dropped UB and dirge in favor of 3/3 morbidity, because it just feels more useful to me.
i've been contemplating dropping to 2/3 morbid and picking up UB since in theory that's 5% damage vs. 10% damage for a single point, but given the way that DC is doing damage for me i've been reluctant to commit to it.
perhaps you can offer some insight into this because i think i also don't quite get it...
doing what i feel is a totally standard rot on the kind of tank-and-spank i've seen in ICC thus far - IT, PS, BS, SS, BS, DC, SS, SS, BS, DC, BS, DC, repeat... i find that i'm *never* short of RP to dump DC when my GCDs come up, even without dirge (which is why i never got it, i didn't see the use in doing so since i never lacked RP) - have i somehow catastrophically screwed up my rot?
assuming not, it strikes me that the rolling nature of UB (being highly variable based on the damage of the last DC that planted it, in particular whether or not it crit) means that at the end, you're not actually seeing 10% of total DC damage in UB - but a fair bit less.
so making the inherent leap that you're looking at 2/3 morbid with UB vs. 3/3 morbid without UB, is there really any reason to bother with UB?
