Most over powered class.

Rogues obviously, followed extremely closely by mages. It's a repeating pattern to have rogues and mages dominating expansions but in this expansion rogues have REALLY outdone themselves.
GC himself recently admitted "rogues are the best designed class" - meaning that every other class simply isn't equipped as well as rogues when it comes to having so many offensive and defensive tools at their disposal.

Recuperate coupled with the huge vanish buff (i.e. they get to vanish no matter how terrible they are) has literally doubled their survivabilty, and survivability used to be a rogue's greatest weakness once upon a time. Catching one in the open meant hell for the rogue, but they compensated by being able to lock you down while bursting. But now rogues have lost very little of their control (kidney shot nerf) while having gained ridiculous amounts of survivability. They vanish with 5% health remaining and the next time they re-open on you they're back at 50-60%. Rogues have always had the option to buy time for their cooldowns, but atleast you could be sure that they had no way of healing it back - except now they CAN heal back, and huge amounts at a time.

I miss the days when getting a rogue to low health actually meant something, I miss the days when rogues were viable kill targets in arena. In their current state it's foolish to try and focus a rogue.

But hey, I can't say much since I'm a mage, who is almost just as overpowered ;)


I would have to say I agree 100% with this. Ret Paladins aren't even anywhere close they are one of my easiest fights (if not the easiest) as an Enhancement Shaman.

yea i would say Subtlety rogues (which is pretty much EVERY rogue)
are overpowered. the stun locks arent the problem, its that cheat death, recuperate, vanish crap thats keeping them at the top, let alone preparation which makes it so they can vanish AGAIN. like a ret (or any) pally, you actually have to kill a rogue 2-3 times before it actually dies.


Ret Paladins are a far easier kill than Rogues don't even get started. You only have to kill Ret Paladins 1 and a half times (because of Divine Shield)

The most overpowered class is <class I don't play> and it needs to be nerfed. The most underpowered class is <class I play> and Blizzard can you buff our damage?


This^

I personally feel every class has strengths and weakness's against other classes. For example Hunters are weak vs rogues and warriors. Warriors are weak against mages and I presume locks? Mages are weak against hunters and so and and so forth.

In the end I think a large part is knowing your class thier class and how to counter them. The more you know the better your chances are. I take on the john sheridan approach of "enemy enemy can be beaten. You just have to figure out how".

Love how the OP is complaining about needing to kill Paladins 2+ times in a fight where as the Paladin wasn't even able to bill the OP once.

Are they removing UA in that redesign? If not they'll continue to dominate the caster dps slot like they have since arena was introduced.
If you complain about UA you have mental issues.Exploiting one spell and chaining it into your arena script doesnt make a class dominant. 3 v3 doesnt matter.

I know how crazy of me to point out locks i-win button that they're getting to keep for yet another xpac.

I can't choose because the most OP class seems to change when i play a different class. it's like the game is being redesigned as i am logging in.

on a serious note i can;t really pick one. out of all the classes i've played i have not found one class that can consistently Tear me down.

On a side note frost mages are irritating now matter what class i play. Not exactly OP but chasing them ..... i hate the damn chase.

It hasnt been an i win button since early BC days. Right now it's a " no other class provides a better option atm" button. I would be more upset about The felhunter critting you for more damage than any single warlock spell can.

Recupe is nasty as hell now, too.
Thinking more along the lines that they get free combo points on targets via H A T for doing nothing.
