This is, without a doubt, one of the best decisions that has ever been made for WoW. Allowing Skill to > Class Tricks is great. Great for the players, great for raids. Especially in regards to tanking... I've been in raids where the best tank(knowledge, reaction time) wasn't the best option for a particular fight... and it causes wipes. It causes frustration, especially if you are a tank, because you know you can do a better job, if only you had that class.When I used to tank(feral druid), I enjoyed it, and even contemplated leveling a Warrior just to be assured I could tank every fight. I would have rather stayed a feral druid(and I did), but the fact that I had to think about that showed a flaw in the game design(IMO).As a current Balance Druid, often #1 DPS in my group(We clear BT/Hyjal... but who doesn't these days), I'm glad to see Hybrid DPS being buffed... though I do agree "pure" DPS classes should always have a slight upper hand if gear/skill is equal to others. With all the new philosophies Blizzard is introducing(Equal Tanks, Skill > Class, Raid Wide Buffs), I'm really excited to see how Blizzard has designed raids with those ideas in mind.
