Is there some kind of bug thats causing SPs to out DPS pure DPS classes on pure nuke 'em fights or are SPs a little OP atm?
I am in a guild that does 25man raiding, and we are all pretty much geared to the max now and its quite clear that SPs can out DPS warlocks, hunters, rogues and mages in a pure nuke (1 boss, no adds) environment at high end gear level (well, as high end as we can get atm).
Now, I'm not sure about any issues with classes like mages or locks that would hold them back, though I know rogues have a few issues that blizzard is sorting and have heard that hunters were nerfed too much or something. But when the "hardcore" pure DPS class players of the guild that really know their classes and learn how to push the character they play get most out of it are getting out DPSed by a hybrid class on a pure nuke fight then I see something is wrong.
From past raiding experience with SPs I know that there are a lot of SPs that do not reach anywhere near the potential DPS they could achieve, and know there is quite a bit of skill needed to be a good SP, as our guild has had a fair share of both (not just with SPs but with most classes).
Now I know a lot of people out there will suddenly probably stand up now I have posted this and shout "no, we should be top DPS", but thats not true and as a hybrid with an equal skilled range of people (though ofc hard to achieve) SPs should (like other hybrids) be 5% less DPS than the pure DPS classes, as intended by blizzard.
Can anyone shed any light on this?
