As far as dps, Rogues and druids have stealth, hunters have range, and warriors have extra armor and hp. So shouldn't we be doing the most DPS? At least on par with a rougue- who is wearing leather armor but has high evasion and stealth?
Compare us to a hunter. How many times have you seen a 20-2 hunter running around a bg? They have a pet AND range to protect them, so should we have a higher natural dps then them seeing as we have no pet and must be in melee range?
I've considered that shamans can heal, but that's not really all that critical when you're in melee range alot.
This is a hypothetical question, I'm really interested to see what you guys think.
