    Resto druid, Guardian druid, Balance druid.

    I'd say resto druid, bear tank, and, depending on the fight, spriest/feral cat. Druids have been kind of boned this xpac.

    monk tanks

    maybe because people are still learning them and they are a new class that hasn't had years of balancing like other tanks, but I find they take alot more damage than other classes.

    Resto Druid, Guardian Tank, Ret Paladin.

    Really though they're all playable. These are just noticeably behind the curve.

    sorry what prot pally as the weekest tank don't think so they will still be very steady and boomkin is one of the most gearscaling classes and are already doing some crasy stuff at ilvl 510, kind of agree on the druid tho.

    i think
    dps: ele shaman on most single target fights
    healer: restro druid i havent seen any big buff to holy priest so i am going to put them on the line aswell
    tank: they are all very good aslong as the player are good thats a triky one

    No. Go check WoL for details because you've got things backwards. They're doing pretty great right now.

    WoL ranks are such a great way to tell what healer is viable, am I right.

    You can separate them by class and spec, average out the HPS, and then compare each of them for effective HPS. The results may shock you.

    Worst healer; Monk. Most/all I have seen (even the raiders) have serious mana issues and can only last a few trash packs before going OOM. That, and the fact that they are the only healer that is proc-dependent (Chi generation) means that they are very hit and miss. Hell, the last time I played something so proc-dependent was Ret Paladin pre-Holy Power (Not that they currently aren't with Divine Purpose & The Art of War); why they thought the same philosophy would work with Healing when it didn't for DPS i've no idea.

    Worst tank; Monk. Most/all I have seen (even the raiders) have serious health spike issues. I think what is wrong is people having some fundamental misconceptions about how Monk is supposed to be played. They do not stop to ponder why it is that Monk brews slow and that they have so much mobility; obviously because on trash, they are supposed to kite melee. They do not stop to think how much easier life is made, if they cleanse their Stagger away every once in a while. A Brewmaster played improperly is about as effective as a long-term tank as a Rogue.

    Worst DPS; Death Knight. Not because it's bad, but because the class was pretty much made for bad and unskilled players to feel good about themselves and to feel powerful. Even when getting your rotation/CC wrong, it is not hard to surpass most other players. It is the welfare class of WoW.

Do you really think you can just sweep all that away and cast aside your guilt so easily? No, your kind will never change, and I will never stop fighting you." - Grand Admiral Proudmoore

    But the thread was about the worst... whatever.

    It's definitely looking like monks are seeing the bench and holy priests are almost non-existent in most fights. Shaman and druid are middle of the pack (or, as those blue posts call it, "where classes should be") and disc priests/pallies well ahead of the group. That said, holy priests are phased out mostly to do with disc priests eclipsing them at every point, where monks are simply at a point where they need more tuning (not unlike early DKs). I'm very skeptical that holy priests will be coming back even with the changes to favour them and to limit disc's potence, which is a shame.
