Don't know maybe the mentioned marks. A lot of specs had phases of weakness but marks probably didn't even really hit mediocrity while most others had at least one somewhat redeeming moment.
Marks may well have been in the dumper all expansion, but OTOH hunters have two other ranged DPS specs to choose from. Druids don't have any other ranged DPS, and priests don't have any other DPS period.
Whats opposite of the fotm class? They probably sucked the most. WW monk, shadow priest, moonkin, arms warrior, mm hunter. For pve in no particular order.
Also I'm laughing at the mages complaining about one tier of talents.
To me, it was WW monks, the mastery issues were insane and stupid that they still can't make something decent; it went from ok (energy capping aside, I liked the random procs, it felt fun to me), to bad (not because it wasn't powerful in ToT, but because it over-centrailized on 1 lousy trinket that we all know never dropped for you when you needed it), to eh (I dislike the whole focus on a brew). Add in that the devs still have their heads up their asses that we players aren't doing WW right since we don't use FoF on CD (let alone how awkward it is to use to begin with) and that the devs would rather tinker/nerf/mess with MW and the whole fistweaving crap (I thought when people weren't complaining as much in the initial incarnation they probably got it right) over addressing the spec most monks probably play, yeah...what is actually a fun class to play and level isn't that competitive in raiding or pvp and that's probably why it'll sink even lower behind locks and rogues as least played class/spec in WoD.
I felt the wrath of blizzard all expansion as a shadow priest. Some one at blizz took out some hate on us.
Whatever class/spec I play suffered the most.
Whatever class/spec I don't play that kills/out dps/out heals/out tanks me was the best.
I'm gonna have to go with monk as a whole. They suffered of the syndrome "we don't want to make an OP class like the DK, so we're just gonna do the opposite... you know we're blizzard we can't make it in between"
Also : we need a poll !

I thought the Cata version of shadow was fun, even though it was middle of the road at best at 85. But the MoP combination of the revamp of the spec and the very poor single target damage and the nerfed self-heals, bleah, just bleah. Useful only for raiding and not much else.
Give me a fight where you wouldn't want a Blood DK...don't worry, I'll help you out. Garajal HC, Sha HC, Horridon HC, Ra-Den, Malk HC.
Now give me a fight where you'd love to have a Blood DK.
I think what the blue said about DK's has been true this entire expansion somewhat (can't fully speak for both DPS specs), aside from Unholy having a moment in the sun with Festerblight in 5.2.
As a tank, I think that statement is true as well.People see patterns where they aren't. Nothing to do with scaling as you imagine. DKs simply lacking fights to shine this tier.
But that's just my opinion, (I play both a Blood DK and a BRM monk)
The dragons' flame sealed my fate. The world of the living can no longer comfort me.
