@ Bodlar: Ironically, I was going to say the same thing about warriors. They’re arguably the best group pvp class, but worst solo pvp class. Dare I say it, but they’re not particularly good in solo pve, either. I’d much rather grind for motes on my warlock or even priest (lolsmite w/spirit tap is amazing for solo grinding, by the way).If flexibility is a prerequisite of the “hybrid” classes, many of the stated nonhybrids may actually do it better. A shadow priest, for example, can drop out of shadow form and provide emergency heals, if needed. Sure, their healing is not going to be stellar, but it will be better than a Ret or Prot Pally’s due to itemization. If you work your gear and spec on a warrior right, you can be a decent emergency tank for trash. You’re not main tank material, but you can get it done.My Pally may be parked at 59, at the moment, but my ability to heal is absurdly bad as Ret, even if I toss on my healing set. About all it's good for is topping myself off so I don't have to eat and drink at the same time.I generally define “hybrid” classes as those who have more than one role, whether it be dps, healing, or tanking. Tanking is essentially a form of CC, but the only CC you dedicate your gear and spec to. All healing and tank classes are necessarily hybrids. DPS classes cannot do anything besides damage, however, so they are given things like nontanking CC, free food, and wipe protection for group viability.Pre-BC, a developer also stated that warriors are considered a dps/tank hybrid.
