    It depends on how long the monsters are going to stay alive

    Frost DKs, especially Dual Wield
    Demo Warlocks

    Both have great burst and sustained AOE

    Enhancement Shaman have awesome AOE as long as the monsters are alive for more than several seconds, since it takes a while to get going.
    That being said other specs of Warlock have good AOE too, but not as on demand as Demo.
    Guatama - Enhancement
    Slowbrah - Retribution/Holy
    Jamespage - Demonology PVP
    Evocati (H - Zul'jin) is recruiting for 25 man.

    Elemental Shaman
    Fury Warrior
    Assassination Rogue
    Demo Warlock
    Shadow Priest
    Frost Mage

    Bring a DK that can AoE grip all the adds further away from the shield, and one or two people lacking a little in AoE damage is NP!

    Also, use anything that can root them even for a second (Warrior talent and Shaman totem, come to mind).

    We have a Blood DK that plans on doing this.

    Demo Lock and Unholy DK. Unholy DK with roiling blood does clearly more than howling blast spamm now. I won't even debate with someone about this. No DK ever topped my unholy AoE damage in BG's as frost while I played unholy.

    Yet a UH DK havent got good sustained dps.. they are king at the execution phase... From what i've seen its still better to bring a Frost dk over UH

    I was going to reply seriously about the burst vs ramp-up/long duration, until I read BGs. You made me laugh, thanks.


    OT: For Burst AoE you'll want the Frost DK and Demo Lock, out of that list I'd say sit the SPriest or Assass Rogue (their AoE is good, but not bursty)

    I don't know where you get your info, but SV hunters have the best AoE in the game.
    As long as the mobs are packed, nothing beats a SV hunter with the multishot spam+expl trap.
    The only one that comes close it the ele shammy.
    If you are talking about mobs that are spread around, then locks are probably the best.
    Just to give you an example, on the trash mobs before the dogs in MSV, I'm pulling twice the dps than the player from second place in recount.
    On Feng hc also I burst the most, and we have a lock, ele shamy and a SP in the raid.

    Paladins have a glyph for exorcism, that removes the range component, but adds a AoE component, but I don't think it's that good compared to other classes AoE

    Ele shamans do not AoE, they cleave. Highest AoE is always a toss up, Right now it would appear that DW frost DK's are strong as well as Locks and mages (fire when combustion is spread)

    You obviously never has a good SV hunter or an ele shammy in your raid.
