I don't know the numbers involved or your equipment level, but warriors are very much top damage dealers when fully decked out in icc 25 hc gear.Whilst other classes are capable of performing well, you should always be near number one. Along with fire mages of course.Saying this, you may be lesser geared and then I'd say it's common in alot of guilds, including my own. It just comes down to why do you enjoy the game, the people? the competition? the numbers?If you are still killing the bosses what does it matter, if you're not - then the question should be something else.

Blizzard has admitted that Fury Warriors with top gear will be at the top of the DPS charts right now. You may have noticed that youwere close to the bottom of the charts at the beginning of Wrath. This is why Blizz is (re-)introducing rage normalization to help avoid the Warrior start at the bottom end up at the top of the charts over the expansion lifetime.

@Krusty BurgerReally? I was just speaking as a confirmed fire mage (in wrath). Personally i didnt like arcane, and since i was equalling all other mages in guild or better on dps i stuck with it.Looking back the only dps increase was a patch or three ago when Pyroblast started being effected by other talents. I know before then arcane was considered the obligatory raiding spec, but thankfully my guild didnt mind me staying fire (and other casters were grateful for the 5% crit on boss from imp scortch).

I definitely think the bosses are not going down, which is why he might be discontent with the lack of competitiveness of his teammates. If his guild is farming heroic mode LK and he sees no competitiveness than yeah... he has other issues. But if not, then what WOULD be the question? I think the question would be exactly what the author stated above. If your guild has 7 or 8 people doing less than 6k dps on Festergut and keep hitting the enrage timer week after week, even with a 25% buff (meaning they are only doing 4.5k dps in ICC gear??) and you are putting out 11~12k dps and really want to down the LK, what would you do? After you try (for several weeks if not months now) to motivate the others with no visible outcome? What would YOU do?
