    how are boomkins compared to other classes?

    thinking about going a range dps and boomkins sounds fun but i want to do decent.

    Gear dependent, so you will suck till you have gear. once you hit about 510-515 you could hold your own against anyone tbh.

    Boomkins are really good this tier. Lot's of utility, good single target, good cleave. Top 5 dps overall IMO.

    Hard to play due to a lot of micromanagement too, so if you're looking for a challenge, it's a good choice.

    If you only look at casters, I rank them like this.
    Locks
    Mages
    Boomkin
    Ele
    Shadow


    Single target Mages are just ridiculous as usual, Warlocks are really good at it, Boomkin/Ele is fine there imo and Shadow is lacking behind.
    Multi dotting we are very good at, Aoe we suck at.

    Very strong. Not top, but close.

    Boomkins are good enough class to top range dps if you re more skilled than players you play with.

    If you re at the same level of skill as locks and mages you play with, you will only shine on spread multi target encounters.

    In other words, your skill level is much more important than the class you play.

    Boomkins are always awesome.
    Steel types stand strong.

    A very underrated part of boom, the utility they bring to raids. Dps wise alittle bit behind mages, locks. Utility wise inexpendable

    I guess you are better than warlocks in your group.

    They're quite good for raw DPS, and they'll consistently bring nice utility to the table as well. While that's valued less than it used to be, it's still nice to have someone around that can provide a nice raid CD, a decent buff package, Rebirth, and Boomkin dance

    If you're going to RBG at all, Boomkins are highly desired at present, and still will be after the Solar Beam nerf.

    This. After you hit the break point for hit and haste and start getting more crit you'll see your DPS skyrocket.

    Capable boomkins can certainly top the meters, playing a boomkin is easy, but there is a world of difference in the damage an average player and a good player can pump with a balance druid.
