I was reading yet another thread on the warlock wow forum explaining how affliction warlocks are the only true mensch and everybody else is an unskilled noob & affliction is always the best spec.
To press the point someone posted this link: http://www.wowmeteronline.com/rank/clazz/dps/wrl/6/0
Well as for me this proves the opposite.
There are indeed fights where demo or destruction fare better than affliction such as Gothik & Faerlina.
In addition what is even more interesting is the comparison with all classes.
It shows that:
- the dps difference between affliction/demo/destru is minimal as compared to the difference between the top ranked class and the locks.
For example for Loatheb the affliction does 73% of the damage of the warrior, and the demo 71%.
- Warlocks do not make it to the top 10 in 9 out of 16 bosses and barely make it 10th one time and 9th one time.
Can we still say consider warlocks a dps class? As for me we'd better enjoy being taken to raids while we can.
