I raided as a fire mage in WOTLK, and I recently started playing again. I leveled my mage to 90 before deciding to reroll rogue because I didnt not like the rune of power mechanic (if someone could comment on this that would be great, it seems ridiculous to have to manage standing in a 5 foot radius for a 15% spell power increase during fights with movement). My rogue is currently 85 and I'm wondering how melee fairs in 5.4 when compared to ranged dps classes.
How are raids balanced so that melee can match ranged dps during fights with movement?
Are ranged dps classes generally recruited more compared to melee dps classes? Clearly recruitment depends on what guilds need, but are ranged classes valued more?
