'As blizzard has stated multiple times since the release of beta. All DPS specs in WotLK are supposed to be dead even. Meaning with even gear and even skill a elemental shammy should be within 1% of a hunter or mage. There is no more of this "Wah Wah Wah You're a hybrid I should out DPS you because I'm not a hybrid" crap. That boat has sailed buddy, so just stop.'You might want to tell that to Ghostcrawler:'Pure classes should be able to out dps hybrid classes by a small margin. However, hybrid classes should be able to be a lot closer than they were in BC, and depending on the skill, gear and encounter involved, will sometimes beat the pure dps classes.For purposes of this discussion, pure = mage, warlock, hunter, rogue. These are the classes that cannot spec into healing or tanking roles.I don't want to get too far down into what that margin should be, because then players return with a WWS parse saying "See, the mage beat me. You said we would be competitive."'http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=12065190196&pageNo=1&sid=1#1
