You poor dears. Try being an aff lock. What's that? You buffed the felhoud? Hooray.

I thought they were doing the same for Corruption....?
I know what you mean. Still, us priests can always use our other perfectly viable DPS tree.

Discipline dps, cmon, I cant be the only person that wants this to happen?Even as a pvp tree (reflective damage, talents to reduce healing of penance and buff damage of smite, holy fire, dmg penance etc.) AND MOAR SHIELDZ!!!In fact, who needs shieldz?Whenever someone hits me, my priest could DO A BARREL ROLL!!!

So you support a viable Smite build, too? No? You mean you're comparing a class with THREE different DPS trees to a class with ONE? Okay then.

A destrolock says what?...exactly -_-comparing a pure dps class to a hybrid is like comparinga muscle car to a hybrid one.A muscle car can kick hybrid's ass on the roadbut guess who is more efficient and has more utility?As far as haste buff for the SW Pain my guess is the devs would come up witha solution of some sort. It is still the PTR and the patch won't drop for anothercouple of weeks most likely. Im hoping they would add SW pain to other haste affected dotsbut that probably won't happen till Cataclysm when all the stats would get normalised andhaste would get rolled in some stat like intelect (spirit? :P) that way you could limit the amount of haste people put on their gear with a solid stat.When all else fails make a haste cap for dots :-/

maybe you should go read your warlock column and take note of the fact that simulationcraft puts aff back as the top dps spec for locks...

Gimme a break, telling him to play a different tree would be the same as saying "oh dps isn't high enough, then go heal".I have an aff/destro dual spec, they play differently and I'd like Aff to be comparable, but buffing everything through the felhound (even though I love my felhound) is a bit meh.He's not saying take it away, he's just saying he'd like a piece of the action. (Corruption is nice, I just wish it didn't take a glyph slot for 1 spell.)

Pure DPS classes and hybrids, eh?Every time I hear about a "hybrid tax" I want to make kitty eyes =) and ask this: I kan haz feral kitteh dps? No? How about pally survivability? No? How about DK dps (come on, they can tank and dps, we can heal and dps, they ARE hybrids)? No? Ok, at least a bukkit, I promise I'll share it with the Walrus.As a friend of mine (a mage) put it yesterday, "Quit that sorry class. If Blizz wanted to make you guys kickass, they wouldn't wait 4 years to do so".
