This is why my priest is holy/disc, and why I play healers. I've tried to DPS before, I have a warlock at 85, but I just don't do well. Maybe I would with a lot of practice and if I had time to actually get geared, but then maybe not.At least as disc any Atonement DPS I put out is just gravy...

all three specs for Warlocks and shadow priests are among the most complicated dps specs in the game. You might find DPS'ing a little easier on a rogue, mage, warrior, or paladin, if you ever wanted to dip your toes back into the dps game.

That may be true but not for Subtlety rogues. Their rotation is the hardest of the rogue specs and is along the lines of a Feral's rotation.

I am leveling a mage at the moment, actually. She's around 66 or so right now, so I've got some time. And as far as complexity, really the only one I feel even remotely comfortable with is affliction. I've played destro some, and it's kinda fun, but I usually fall back to affliction. At the moment I'm not even sure which warlock spec is the "best". I've heard all of them mentioned, but I've also heard warlocks aren't exactly the top of the pack right now anyway.I'm sure practice would help at least some, and having a UI setup specifically for DPS (right now it's for healing and I can turn on some DPS-y features for tracking DoTs and whatnot).

I think you mean a warlock instead of a mage. As for which spec is the "best", according to DPS Bot, all three specs do better than the other two in Dragon Soul with Demonology being the overall best in 10 man and Affliction and Destruction being about the same in 25 man.

What I tried to say was that each spec has at least one fight in Dragon Soul where they do better than the other two, no matter what the difficulty or size is.

Sorry, I wasn't paying attention I guess... What I meant was that I -am- leveling a mage, that was right, but I meant to agree that priests and warlocks are complex, but I'm most comfortable with affliction.
