    dk dw frost is good at low gear levels. Higher gear levels they really start to fall behind though.

    warlocks, easy to learn, difficult to master. I would say affliction is very hard.. any dot class is, beause of multi dotting. Destro is simple. but Demo atm, if played the cheating way, is quite difficult
    It was never Hardcore Vs Casual. It was Socialites Vs. Solo players

    elemental is incredibly easy, and can even be dumbed down to an even more basic version by speccing out of a CD nuke and into your elemental doing more damage. Essentially the shaman can be as simple as putting up your one dot, casting lavaburst on cooldown or proc (from dot ticks), dumping earth shock at >5 shield charges and spamming lightning bolt. The only mild point of issue comes in at the point when you need to dump earth shock and refresh your DOT at the same time (they share a CD).

    Rogue is really basic on single target, on AOE it requires more thinking.

    Assassination Rogue at the moment is VERY easy, plus you have a ton of survivability. Also bring decent raid utility in the form of two completely passive buffs (Master Poisoner and Swiftblade Cunning), smoke bomb, and tricks of the trade.

    From the dps specs I played this xpac I would rate them in difficulty from easiest to hardest:
    1. Ele Shaman
    2. Frost DK
    3. UH DK
    4. Moonkin

    Definitely blood DK. You CAN tank an entire raid with nothing but death strike. Not saying it is optimal, but it can be done. The one button wonders of the tank community.

    Boomkins are actually really faceroll aswell. Get to put up dots, refresh when in eclipse, use starfall off CD, spam wrath/starfire, use starsurge off cd.

    That summs it up when you want to do like 70% of your potential damage.

    That depends. I always say that there is a 80% rotation, a 95% rotation and a 99.9% rotation. Many specs are easier than the others at different levels of performance. Most people only ever manage to put out 80% of their spec's potential anyway. Easiest 80% I'd say hunters and destro locks atm.

    Really the biggest factor in DPS is the player not the spec, especially these days.

    Elemental shaman and frost mage

    And those saying Arcane clearly haven't played the spec or know of its mastery and reliance on RoP.

    Idk why people say Blood DK. First of all, it isn't a DPS class, and 2ndly it isn't just Death Strike spam, maybe in LFR it is, but if you go into the harder normals or most heroics and spam death strike and stupid times you're gonna end up getting slapped with no blood shield up. It isn't as faceroll as people think.

    I made a top 5 of 5 classes I played at/near max level:

    1. Destruction Warlock (Easiest rotation evah)
    2. Frost Mage (spam frostbolt anyone?)
    3. Frost DK (5 button class)
    4. Elemental Shaman (super burst)
    5. Arms Warrior (still has most buttons)

    Blood is a higher skillcap than most other tanking class atm. Any class can overgear normals and do stupid things, I met a pally once that used hammer of the righteous through all normals and hardly ever used crusader strike, and BM "rotation" is a cakewalk once you figure it out. Posts like these spread misinformation.

    Elemental shaman, Assassination rogues and hunter (all specs). Just smash your keyboard with your head and you will dps fine.

    only post what I have tested and done. not even trying to imply it is the proper way, but it is easily doable in any normal content.

    and here is the kicker for idiots that took frost tanking away, you can easily dual wield tank in blood as well now. it just doesnt matter.

    that doesn't make arcane hard it makes arcane bad.

    ele shammy is by far the easiest dps spec around.

    no way. you have to decide whether to keybind chain lightning to one key or all of them and face smack. thats a big decission.
