OK well first off I have a Warrior, Lock and Pally. I've done arena and PvE with all of them. I've also been up against all the other classes in arena. Since all the nerf's/boosts are always based on arena I'll talk about that first.The class I have the most problem with at the moment is, Mage. As a Pally healer they can get rid of all my buffs such as sacred shield, beacon, etc. Then they can spell lock my casting,and they can spam polymorph me as many times in a row as they want. They can deep freeze me, daze me and on top of all that they can nuke me down fast. As a Warrior I can't even get near one and when I do I get morphed/frozen to the spot or just plain nuked into next week. As a Warlock I don't have the burst to compete with a Mage anymore or the DPS to burn them down before they've had a chance to knock me into next week. If any class needs a nerf it's Mages. Look at the top ten arena players, see a Warrior there? No. How many rogues do you see? One. How many mages and disc priests do you see? Plenty. That should tell people something. As a Prot Warrior we have great CC yes, but to get the kind of damage others have mentioned we'd have to gimp our survivability and still not have any resilience so it would never really work, we'd be a high damage CC machine that would last about 5 seconds against heavy burst. As far as PvE goes....Warriors during TBC sucked as a tank class compared to Paladin, we were always second choice. Finally in Wrath we're getting to see some great performance from them in raids and they are a joy to play. Nerf them again and we will go back to "oh who's the tank, yea that pally over there".On subject of Rogues I really don't see how anyone can argue they need nerf'd. One on one a mage on a single target vs a rogue the mage will be top everytime unless they're undergeared or just a useless faceroller with no talent, who button mashes and hopes for the best. It really depends on the fight and use of moves. With Seed of Corruption on a Warlock I can get stupidly high numbers in Ony on the whelps and make myself look like an OP superstar but it's a lie and it's all a bunch of crappy spike damage. A trick that a FoK'ing rogue will always exploit to look good on the meters(since meters are all that matter it seems). To base DPS on the last boss fight in the first wing of ICC is plain stupid and short sighted.ClassesOn my Pally & Warrior in DPS spec I know I'm never(should never) going to top any meter for real. It's a hybrid and as such I accept that. With my Lock I'm really pretty fed up with nerf after nerf and I've kind of stopped playing him because I'm sick of fighting the bat. But overall let's look at it this way. Feral DPS is just as high as any Rogue, plus raid utility such as buffs and a combat ress, so nerf Rogues? Who is going to want a Rogue? Druids, Pally's and Shamans have the best raid buffs of all classes, is it fair that they should top Mages, Rogues, Locks and Hunters that have barely any raid utility in comparison? The sensible answer is no. Right now there is one class that really needs nerf'd and it's not the Rogue or Warrior it's the M.A.G.E.
