My guild has it all, and I enjoy most every class I've played (w/ the exception of Hunters), so what do you all think, what's the consensus, what single class and spec brings the DPS for 5 man dungeon runs?
Thanks for your suggestions.
If CC is as strong as it was in the beta, you'll want a strong CC class. That means either warlock or shaman.
With the new glyph, almost all targets can be feared safely, and the ones who can't can be banished or enslaved. If you go with shaman, Hex is a very strong CC that doesn't break on accidental damage, and the new Bind Elemental is huge in cataclysm dungeons.
From what I saw on the beta, polymorph quite frankly blows. It breaks on a sneeze and doesn't work on undead, dragonkin, elementals, etc. Humanoids are extremely uncommon in cata dungeons. Expect to see a huge number of dragonkin and elementals, though, making warlocks your best bet, and shamans a close second.
If DPS is your main concern, it doesn't really matter, as all classes will be able to provide competent DPS for a five man group.
