Ahhm, perhaps you didnt see my second post, so ill excuse you.but there are what, 4 "pure" dps classes in game right? Hunters, Mages, Warlocks and Rogues.Now, forgive me if im wrong, but from what I understand, you would only ever take these classes for thier damage? Not for utility or CC? Sheeping isnt important? Buffs? Trapping? Picking locks? Soulstone?Ok, maybe you dont need these things in every instance, so if we disregard those, why on earth would we take mages if they are so "nerfed"? Wouldnt you just stack the most dps efficient class? Think about this for a moment, every class has its advantages and disadvantages, mages fill a role unique to them. When sap can be applied in combat, and warlocks can give an intelect buff, and hunters start doleing out food, then id consider you in need of a buff.Sure, pallies have powerful heals, all of which have a cast time, making us all but useless on fights where there is lots of movement, let alone where theres a lot of aoe damage going on. As for prot, sure its fun, but our "blue rage bar" annoys me when im tanking not having an infinite supply to draw on, but for trash, we are A-gradeAs for the retard and only one role for my paladin comment, I wont take offense, because my pally has only one role, why? Because the other aspects of the paladin class dont interest me. Because I enjoy playing ret far more than the other two specs. Because I tank on my warrior, and heal on my shammy. Just because im passionate about one spec doesnt mean im blind to the other aspects of the game. Hell, ill even throw on a sword and board in fights when its needed.
