@ Eturyu The reason pallys (ret) get bagged on still, is because there is no learning curve to the class. Anyone can come into the class on day 1 and just mash any button thats off cooldown, and have mostly the same amount of success as an experienced player.I have a number of level 80's, including an arcane mage, a feral tank, and a prot/ret pally, all of which I raid ICC with. And while you are right that they all have simplistic rotations there is a difference;Arcane mages need to do research first to understand how best to use their arcane blast buff, always playing a balancing game with stacks and mana pool. Yes its a simple rotation, but has plenty of room for finesse with playing a balancing act that sets the great mages apart from the average mages.Feral tanks have to work damn hard for their gear at the start. With arguably the most limited tanking toolbox to work with, the most painful caster tanking experience, and threat generation that relies so heavily on your weapon, its a pain at lower gear levels. Once you've hit the higher gear levels then yes, you get to run around just spamming swipe and queuing maul, but thats only once you overgear an instance. Simple? yes, but its your 'reward' for having gone through a shit-curve of hassle to get there.
