Ok this may just be my weird thinking or maybe this is other peoples thinking as well. in my oppinion hybrid classes such as druids and paladins shouldnt be able to tank as well as warriors. ok a druid and a pally can heal themselves maybe not while tanking but they still can for example ZA on bear boss when boss switch's forms the druid tank can shift forms and heal himself many other examples like this as well a warrior cant. Bandaging only goes so far. hybrid classes shouldnt be the best at anything they should be good at alot. a hybrid class shouldnt top the DPS or healing charts it should be the classes where that is really the only thing they can do.

let me rephrase the above comment for those who don't feel like reading it:"I'm a warrior and I'm mad that I actually have to be a good tank now instead of just being automatically picked because I'm a warrior".

"hybrid classes shouldnt be the best at anything they should be good at alot. a hybrid class shouldnt top the DPS or healing charts it should be the classes where that is really the only thing they can do."The best part of this post is that he doesn't realize Warriors are a hybrid class.Classic.

Its the tree you choose that defines the class not what they can do.

I think that if you can spec for it, get gear and put time and effort to learn your class, you should damn well be EQUAL with other players. People QQing about "their jobs" are stuck in the old mentality of defining their essence by their class NOT by their skill. Sorry, your class doesn't carry you anymore, learn to play. I'm glad they fixed it so that people who played Hybrids (6 out of 9 classes btw - not counting the 10th till it's out) had a decent chance at being competetive. It's amazing the self-serving nature of the "pure" classes who want to hold them back simply because they're afraid people will find out they have no real skills.

I wasn't aware there was a "pure" healing class. Did Blizz add one?Priests can go shadow and are therefor hybrid heal/dps.Shammys can go elemental or enhance and are therefor hybrid heal/dps.Druids can go dps or tank and are therefor hybrid dps/tank/heal.Pallys are like druids and can do all three.So where is this pure healer topping the heal charts?

Interesting example. Of course this is one particular fight and the heals of a feral druid are quite weak, i would think for most successful groups they wouldn't be the breaking point. I've always preferred to use druids to tank the bear phase anyway as their strengths were better used there. There are very few fights where it's worthwhile for a druid tank to pop out of form to heal, they have the weakest heals around and expose themselves to a lot of risk to do so.
