Could the translation from Shadowpriest DPS -> mp5 be put on a tooltip for the option? I worked it out myself (it is 1/4, so 1000dps = 250mp5), but I went for ages on the assumption that it was 1/10th (since I knew high end shadowpriests topped out at about 1800dps, and most of Rawr's options default to something appropriate for end-game raiders). I wouldn't be surprised if other mages are ignorant of how shadowpriest mechanics work.

If I'm using Rawr to calculate for a certain fight, I look at the total mana returned by our shadow priests in WWS and divide by fight length and then multiply by 5. This will give you a more accurate picture than estimated dps divided by 4.
