I was having fun on the ptr playing around on classes when I decided to install recount and see how much dps I could get wearing only pvp gear.
So I proceeded to make a premade of each class (except druids got bored before getting there) and got them geared optimally for their spec with the free pvp gear. I used a tenacity trinket (remove cc) and the on use str/agi/int. granted I'm no expert at any class since I'm an alt-aholic so I used icy-veins for quick reference much like lazy students uses Wikipedia. My results were extremely weird:
Fury War 73k dps
Ret 85k dps
surv Hunt 80k dps
Ass rog 75k dps
Arc Mage 88k
Aff lock 73k
WW monk 104k dps
unholy dk 73k dps
enh sham 90k dps
All where self buffed of course for 10min fights (stopwatch) no bloodlust (too big advantage). I just got my monk to 90 today there's no way in hell I'm a master of it. so how the hell did I get 104k dps (for 10 min). I thought buffs since they had good ones 5% crit and motw so tried without self buff but still got 90k+ dps.
the class I played the most : Priest, Paladin, Mage, Rogue, War. in that order
the least: Druid, Hunter, Monk, DK, Sham, Lock
Did pvp gear restrict some class more? or am I just bad with most of these classes and should just play a monk? pvp gear is 522... 75k feel low or are raid buffs THAT game changing... I'm guessing 5% crit for fury war is incredible! Or things changed so much during ptr that icy-veins is out of date?
