Best dps paired with priest

Battlegrounds
Hey forums, as the title asks, what would be the best dps paired with a priest be? and why? Some specs have great dmg but no survivability which is why some people dont play it, but with a dedicated healer, any all out dps spec is fair game, so which would be most effective :D Thanks in advance!
UH DK, Mage, Lock, Warrior would be path of least resistance. Lots of sustainable pressure + wtfburst.
any advice from any standpoint would be beneficial
I would add hunter to Videoh's list... I did well on my disc priest when paired with a hunter.
i enjoy hunter as mm or surv only tho, and atm all i see are bm specs so i figured mm and surv are lacking in dmg?

BM's appeal has more to due with their CC outs. MM burst is technically higher. Powershot + Aimed Proc + Chim shot + Blink Strike can lead to hundreds of thousands of damage. People are making MM work.

Not sure I'd add lock as the classes BEST paired with a priest due to the DRs. Priests need classes with good peels, as priests are still very susceptible to being trained. Mages and Rogues are the king of peels, and share very few DRs with priests. Sapping off a priest fear is very potent.
Yes they share fear dr, but there is shadowfury, tendrils, lifegrip, lifeswap + lock regens, portal + gateway. Can be pretty rough for melee to stick to them for long.
how is mm dmg compared to lock or rogue?
I believe Discs are best paired with either UH DK or BM Hunters.

Amazing in terms of damage, but in terms of survival....locks hands down.
but paired with a healer survivability wont really be an issue. so as far as damage and helping the priest stay alive with cc or peels, how are mm hunters compared to the dk and rogue?
feral
Ele shaman or mm hunter for mobility and damage?

No I would say the finalists are UH DK and BM Hunter.
But between the ele sham and mm which has more dmg/mobility? And I thought frost dk was the premiere dmg spec
Problem with mm is two fold.

1. Their npc pet doesn't do most of the work. So if they get los' d or disarmed, its a massive dmg loss. They have to be a much better player to make it work.

2. They are far more prone to eat cc. BW is basically a free trinket for bm.

Frost is good damage but is kinda squishy. UH is really good this season (due to buff in disease damage) and they are excellent vs. casters. I am going UH after I do arenas this week (will have to learn the spec, as it is a different playstyle).
Yes they share fear dr, but there is shadowfury, tendrils, lifegrip, lifeswap + lock regens, portal + gateway. Can be pretty rough for melee to stick to them for long.


I got to 1750 in 2s a couple years ago with a shadow/disc priest. OFC he was a 2k+ player and probably carried my !@# in half the matches, but the dmg now from destro/shadow must be insane right now. I did this back when I played aff and gateway, tendrils, lifegrip wasn't there.
rogue feral or mage
