    Best Class with pack of CDs for one shot macro and big number?

    As title says, what always made me want to play a class was the possibility of BIG NUMBERS.
    Currently, what is the spell/class you think that is capable of the bigger numbers of the game on PvP?

    I know it might seens stupid, but I am really wondering that for while.

    But.. I am a rogue.

    Mage is the only class i've been globalled more than 100 times. I don't even know the macro, but it has something to do with casting petfreeze right before you've finished casting frostbolt and using deepfreeze glyph so that you can deepfreeze while you've got 3 bolts midair or something.

    All those classes can burst with big numbers that's what I know, but I don't know they're cooldowns. All I can talk about is feral.
    My macro is:
    /cast incarnation
    /cast Nature's vigil
    /use 13/14 (pvp dps trinket)
    /use Virmen's bite
    /cast Tiger's fury
    /cast Berserk
    Usually I also wait for my proc trinket to proc. Gives total of 10k agility or so.
    Ravagespamming for 100k + crits all the way.

    Also, FB is like the shitcake of the year, it crits every fourth time, and without critting it hits 20k. 20k with 5 cp's, cd's and SR up. What a waste of everything. Don't use it.

    I wouldsay druids atm because your cds are all just 3 minutes so you can pop them all at one time, thought this is getting fixed next patch.

    I run around bgs and arena with 60% resil and I have been hitted by 192k powershot from a hunter in arena last night. That is ALOT.

    But.. I am a rogue.

    Yeah but it is horribly bugged and fails completely half the time. It's the ultimate dice roll, it has to actually work and then crit as well or it's meh. Compared to say a chaos bolt where you know for a fact it will land and crit, I know what I'd choose.

    Warlock, but easiest to do is probably Feral.

    Feral ravages hit really hard too.

    I though it used the same spell as aimed shot that criti when target at 80% hp or more. Anyway, bad its bugged i was considering to test it on my 85 huntard.

    Not ferocious bite spam, it's the ravage! With all cds popped a feral can lay waste to anything. But, still prone to cc. Any one with half a brain will know to cc when someone goes big and red.

    Frost mage was the best at macro all and global people but the nerf to fire blast glyph means you will need to control a bit more to time the explosion.

    I am a frostmage myself, I can still burst to DEATH during coldowns + deep freeze

    I see poll results and I cry.... Chaosbolt with full cooldowns crits for 40% health in a gearer opponent, something any capable player won't let you cast ever.
    If you manage to get one of those chaos bolts cast every 2min in arena, you are either stupidly good, or the other team is terribad.

    Now, managing to land 1 big hit doesn't mean the burst is good. Warriors, ferals, mages, hunters, all bring superior burst. While they hit for less, the hits quickly follows each other up, unlike chaos bolt. Even when you are allowed to freecast it, there will be 3sec between each chaosbolt, giving your opponent plenty of time to react unless you have your partners shutting down the entire team.

    Have an interruptable ability on a 10sec cast time that will one shot whatever it hits. No other skill can match that damage, but if you can't get it cast, stuff won't die. On the other hand, if you hit someone for say 15% hp every second for 10sec, you have a far better chance that you'll kill that person with the damage.

    TLDR: biggest damage doesn't equal best burst. Burst > damage
