    Rogue - Really good for P2. Strong asset to bring.
    Warlock - All of them should be affliction. All of them should have Kil'jaden cunning. They are the single strongest class in the fight, by a lot.
    Mage - Arcane Arcane Arcane. Anyone who says go frost or fire is wrong and dumb. Go Arcane and AoE from melee range. Mages are also awesome on this fight.
    Hunter - Very strong, but must be Survival. BM is pointless. Best class to be the "anchor" for ball tossing because they can deterrence the burrow on a 1m CD and have good AoE coverage from range.
    Warrior - Warriors should stay on the boss sub 20%. After a certain point the entire raid will be AoEing the adds first (we say 6 adds, wave 1), and doing "what they can" to Sha after adds are weak or inbetween via multi-dotting. The necessary decay of Sha of Fear's HP between burrows depreciates from 4% before this to 3%. Warriors however, can do both sub 20%. Their Execute almost backpacks the raid's DPS on Sha as everyone else is AoEing. Their AoE the rest of the fight is fantastic. And if something stupid happens and the wrong tank gets naked, they can get naked too in a pinch and not die. Also they are pretty great in Phase 1 if you do the platform lockout strat.

    There really isn't anything that does badly on Sha of Fear. But if you had to pick your strongest classes for DPS they'd be:
    Ranged in order: Warlock, Ele Shaman, Mages, Shadow Priest, Boomkin, Hunter
    Melee: Frost DK DW, Warrior, Feral Druid, Rogue, Monk, Ret, Enh Shaman

    Good to know though, our DbtS warrior that does the taunting for each first cackle is always super bored on our attempts o_O
    Ours are the opposite.
    Whoever gets sent with the 2nd cackle (with the warrior) cheer on mumble and laugh at everyone else who has to do the fight.
    Lol

    Wow, do your hunters suck? I'm not a particularly good Hunter but I'm usually at the top of the meters on Sha because of how the adds ramp up near the end.

    Our hunter is one of the key anchors with the light and did 130k this week.
    So I agree with you in that they are strong classes for Sha.
