The old "pure" classes that do nothing but DPS have different ways to apply DPS. "Hybrid" classes only have 1 way or tree to apply DPS. Sure you may pick up 1 talent that you like from another tree but you hurt your over all dps because you did not stick to your dps tree.

""Hybrid" classes only have 1 way or tree to apply DPS."I think you are thinking of priests and paladins...Shamans have melee and ranged DPS trees.Druids have melee and ranged DPS trees.Warriors have two trees for melee DPS.

Oh and Death Knights will supposedly have 3 trees for DPS.

Just because pures have tree "dps" trees doesn't mean everyone of those is viable. One spec will always do about 5% dps then the other. Making the other ones useless for general raid dps.

"One spec will always do about 5% dps then the other."I am not sure where some people get this 5% damage rule but 5% is very very very low. That means for every 100 damage you do a "pure" class does 105. Take that 105 and multiply it by 20 and now your doing only 100 damage more per hit. With crits you get 150 damage. WoooooW! A whole 150 damage more. Over a trash mob pull that comes out to be around a whole crit damage more. "Hybrids" bring raid buffs, B rezez, and other valuable skills. Why would you NOT want a hybrid DPS class?
