And to who you quoted, Ret, even with the buffs, will still be trained into the ground. Triple dps will not work with a Ret paladin.
The sac buff and the 2 min cd cleanse are not enough to prevent people from training squishy paladin into the ground.
@OP: Monk, Rogue, Frost Mage, or DK for dps.
Personally I'd pick druid. All four specs are useful in some way. Feral damage is nuts in arena (I don't think cyclone nerf will be too bad). Boomkin damage is nuts in rbgs, and they are getting a healing buff. Resto is getting a 10% buff. Guardians are amazing in RBG.
Warrior, DK, Hunter, Warlock, Mage, Shadowpriest. Stay away from all the rest because you will regret it.
Demo Locks are fun
Mage/spriest this season, I'd probably pick a rogue or monk for 5.2 though. Sounds like they're trying to "apologize" to these classes in 5.2 by making them a little overpowered.
The thing that pisses allot of people off is that Blizz chooses one viable spec for hybrids, so for Shammys and Pallys its healing, for priests right now its shadow, druids not sure about, people so resto druid is not viable however I see plenty in arenas and rbs.
Plus locks heal for more than any hybrid class in a dps spec yet Locks are not considered hybrid? lol ok
Mages have a lay on hand with glyph of Evo, and Rogues do allot of healing with recupe and dont get me even started on the face rolledness of second with and defensive stance.
And Ret will be a complete joke in 5.2. I really dont get why Blizz has such a problem with them

Warriors are incredibly strong and borderline overpowered right now, after 5.2 they'll be more in line. mages have been good throughout cata/mop and almost the entire history of wow actually. hunters are ok but nowhere near as bad as they were at launch (stampede fixed, hits like a wet noodle now but somehow still scares people) monks and rogues looking to be the new FOTM in 5.2, resto shaman and holy paladins are pretty much guaranteed 2200. any other healer you have to work for it.
I STRONGLY advocate researching on "RBG Must-haves" classes.
Currently, most people use OQ to get RBGs to get that last 400 conquest points.
Next patch, people WILL use it to inflate their caps to get to the 27000 mark asap to get elite gear.
So RBG "viability" (I use it loosely, I hate how most people confuse this with OPness) is a MUST.
Cannot go wrong with almost any caster (esp. Lock and Mage), healer, Feral, Dks, Warr, Rogue (the smokebomb change will synergize insanely). Monks also look good even post-ROP nerf, jury is still out though.
In otherwords run away from Rets, DPS Shaman.
Warrior, hunter, mage, lock, SP.
Ranged classes seem to be more forgiving when you do a mistake.
On the other hand when u play a warr or fdk and you face a caster or a healer you can make them feel useless while just facerolling over them.
Its a different story when u meet rly skilled players, but hey.... 99% of all battles this wont be the case.
And, read his first post and you'll know he's not 2000 capable right off the bat. He asked for superior, I told him almost all classes are have a viable chance save the 2 I mentioned. I'm not wrong.
Get off your high horse.
Ooh dying. So ominous. Sounds pretty dramatic to me.
I'm rereading my first post. Doesn't say anything about needing to do RBG in first week or out for rest of the season. Quote please? Perhaps it's you that is mixing things up.
I said RBG "viability" is key. And it is if you want to remain competitively geared. Also, I never said you'll be out if you miss a few weeks though - the catch up conquest cap mechanic will help. OP has never done competitive PVP. He's not going to go to 2K right off the bat. He needs to gear and get experience.
And don't pretend capping isn't important. Its virtually the main reason oqueue is so popular right now. Half the grps are "LOW MMR RBG for Cap".
Honestly I think you're just trolling for a fight and picking on things I never said. Have what you will.
Warrior if u want to do well without trying to much, they do so much damage in arena its uncanny
But thats reckful he can roll a anteater and still win...
