    DPS Class Rankings

    So assuming all things equal (buffs, appropriate support classes, gear, gems, etc) how would you order all the DPS classes? Assume patchwerk type fight with current Ulduar gear.

    If I had to guess I would go with:

    Feral Druid
    Combat Rogue
    Destro Lock
    Fire Mage
    Surv Hunter
    Arms warrior
    Unholy DK
    Boomkin
    Enh sham
    Ele shaman
    Shadow priest
    Ret

    I think that's all 12 DPS options (pure DPS classes I just picked optimal spec). Thoughts? How would you order them?

    Fire Mage
    Feral Druid
    Combat Rogue
    Destro Lock
    Blood DK
    Enh sham
    Surv Hunter
    Boomkin
    Ele shaman
    Ret
    Arms warrior

    Mutilate > Combat provided you aren't moving
    Fury > Arms once you have a solid Ulduar set
    Arcane > Fire on raw dps just gotta be smarter

    If yah don't agree. You can go and do some research

    ok if your taking a fight like patch as the basis for the dps how can you even not consider muti rogue?? muti rogue still > combat for any fight where u dnt have to be switching targets every 2 secs! ignis, xt, hodir, IC, general v and even on mimi.

    Im surprised to see ret at the bottom of the food chain. I play ret and the last time I did patch I pulled just over 5k DPS and Im decked out in T7.5 and not one peice of Ulduar gear and I was using Jawbone, not Betrayer. I came second to rogue that pulled 5.2k. The problem with Ulduar plate DPS gear is that it has armor pen...one of the most useless stats for ret, so the items that do drop in 10's arent any upgrades for me since they all pretty much have armor pen.

    Its a tough one to list the top DPS in fight like patch for instance. Ive seen a Spriest top meters and the next time its a hunter. It all depends on player skill, correct spec and getting your rotations right.

    Re: DPS Class Rankings

    I'd have to say

    Feral Druid
    Destro Lock
    Mut Rogue
    MM Hunter
    Arcane Mage
    Fury Warrior
    Unholy Dk
    Enhance Shaman
    Boomkin
    Ele Shaman
    S Priest
    Ret Pally

    For a fight like patchwerk.

    so against everything but a robot or elemental.
    From what i can see, Mut on non movement is greater then combat. Least thats what i read on their boards.

    Do you have downs? As stated earlier, mages aren't doing so hot when compared to other classes right now.

    Equally skilled and geared, it comes down to;

    Combat Rogue
    Feral Druid
    Destruction Warlock

    Fourth place is a close match between a few classes, mage barely making the cut.

    Also, I love the people with skewed concepts about mage deepz. TTW/FB aka straight-nuking fireball is the top DPS spec for mages right now, but due to it's less than spectacular mana efficiency, frostfire bolt can and will surpass it on longer fights. Arcane is a gimmick spec, good for short, bursty fights, but ass-terrible in the long run.

    Personally, if I was going to purposely gimp myself like those who go arcane, I'd much rather go frost and at least provide the raid with replenishment in the absence of a ret pally or shadow priest.

    Your raid must just be bad if you're even top 10.

    Quitting the fail that WoW has become when Aion comes out. No point to play hardcore when any idiot can have the same gear as you.
