Ahh, but you're missing the point. Those DPS meters really aren't the best representation of the current WoW community—those are highly geared and skilled players. If you drop down into the more "casual" raiding groups, you'll find that ret pallies (along with hunters and mages, I've found, for similar reasons) often top the DPS charts because they're downright easier to get acceptable dps with. Rogues, for example, are not exactly the easiest class to play do to a ton of variables. (Poisons, nasty gearing issues, positional issues.) Throw in the fact that they have multitudes of "oh crap" buttons with their bubbles, lay on hands, ranged stuns, etc, and you can see that, while they may not be OP, they're certainly easier to play casually and do pretty damn well.

Nov 11th 2009 9:25PM For all of you complaining that there's no tanking version, the sister sword (Quel'Serrar) was ONLY tanking; this is just Blizzard giving (most) DPS/Heals an awesome quest-line sword, too.
Nov 11th 2009 4:20AM I love The Instance as much as any bloke, but I don't think they need to be validated by WoW insider; nor do I think that WoW insider really needs to recognize them for anything. They're both immensely popular media outlets for players of the game, and don't really need each other at all.
That said, this time The Instance was actually a source of news in and of itself, so it's appropriate for WoW insider to cover them.
Keep up the good fight!
Oct 16th 2009 7:45PM How so? People *still* haven't cleared 25 heroic ToC; they're just making it easier for casual player to *attempt* something like that. There's nothing fun about rep grind except in retrospect.
Jul 18th 2009 12:20PM No. Blizzard has already stated that they want species to be faction specific.
