    temp has more burst and AOE mm has way more utility and mobility and faster gcd for kill steals.

    Dps isn't really a relevant statistic in pvp.

    Your target has to be pretty dumb to pretend to be a target dummy and not do something about it.

    Better to deal a large amount of damage in what little uptime you have (burst)

    That being said, rogues, especially MM, have an extremely small window between their burst cycles, roughly once every 5 seconds, which makes them good during both short windows of opportunity and more protracted engagements. Non-MM ranged classes have more reliance on 30s-1min cycles.

    Tempest is close to the MM side of things with the short cooldown on arc, but it is somewhat stationary when it loads up a burst(which is higher than MM burst) and lacks the utility of the amazing interrupt and purge MM has.

    You shouldn't be concerned about dps or burst in PvP. PvP is all about low sustained damage. You should be playing things like 61 pally or warlock.

    Tempest will technically do more dps, however, as stated in other places, MM is infinitely more reliable for it's dps. It isn't reliant, as tempest is, on the aoe fluff damage and/or channels (CP, and the torrents, along with electricity blast).

    Another thing to note is the fact that an MM will always be on a target thanks to it's highly mobile nature, where as tempest will often need to re position at a much slower rate, in order to fully function.

    MM's burst every 45 seconds (Yes, if you are using DES without BE, you should stop, it's a horrible waste of time, and if you consider free recoils 10k damage over 4 seconds burst, I can't help you there) is relatively high, but tempest is far superior even discounting their cooldown in wavelength if you can manage to use it, for burst.

    MM also brings a suite of almost unrivaled utility along with it's very reliable damage, and unmatched mobility.

    So in the end, I'ld suggest tempest if you want to burst everything, or MM if you just want a ranged dps class.
