Well i have a mage and a ret both on my old realm that i would like to transfer to my current realm and i was wondering what is best dps but more importantly what will be best dps in MoP level 90? i was messing around on both the other day and mages seemed a bit repetitive and simple

The chance that Ret moves ahead of Mages on just about any fight seems slim to none. You'd be much better off with your mage.

Go mage you wont regret it. Blizzard rarely nerfs their golden child and if the class is every underpowered for some reason it will be hotfixed to be better than any other class in less than 24 hours. You cant go wrong with the mage class. Devs will never nerf the class they play.

A lot of that is hyperbole but at the same time it's unrealistic to say that Blizzard isn't biased for mages.

You'd definitely be making a safe bet going with the mage class, OP.

Mage has three dps specs. Paladin has one. Chances are, mages will always have at least one highly performing spec, while with paladins it's a crap-shoot. For example, we spent two thirds of cata near the bottom and the last patch in the upper-middle range.

So if you want to be sure to have a strong dps spec, your odds are much better with a mage.

Through a website I been looking at for awhile showed ALL 3 mage specs SHOULD be in the top 5 damage.

If anything rets will still be the highest burst but will fall drastically.
Unless they decide to do some changes to ret.
