and so on...
the problem here is only that the last tier greatly incentivize dotter instead of other mechanics and this is exacerbate by the fact that this raid only had 2 bosses
The problem is not that shadow priest/warlock have a niche it's that they're too good at everything. They're the best specs on basically every fight.

Frost mage has a 2-target niche, but shadow priest/warlock beats frost on two target fights.

Also all those 90% reduction soak spells got nerfed to 60% this expansion.
