I rolled a DPS class to DPS

Apparently I should have just rolled a tank. Nearly every heroic I've done the tank has been soundly beating EVERYONE, and by a large margin. Especially DK's.

Tank dps is going to be much higher in relation to dps at the beginning of the expansion because there are very few dps stats (i.e haste, crit, etc.) on gear while Vengeance will contribute a lot to a tank's. Once people start gearing up the dps should start equalizing a bit. I'm not saying this as a main spec tank, but this is common sense.

Who cares. I dont dps 5 mans to feel good about myself. 5 mans are for gearing up.

If I came in heroics on my mage and out tanked the tanks or out healed the healers then these forums would be EXPLODING with QQ. I should not be beat by tanks when I'm in 5 pieces of heroic gear with heroic weapon.

My damage isnt even bad, i do 45k single and 70k+ on AoE. Tanks just do ridiculous damage.

I care. What is the point of a DPS class if I can't DPS as well as the tank? My only job is to DPS, yet tanks are now doing it better. And they are doing it substantially better.

Look at the panic when Dark Apothesis was viable....

This is blizzard's way to get more people to play tanks. Do it! So that my queue times are faster. I'd gladly let you outdamage me. DOO iTT!

You do realize that Heroics are a complete joke right?


Regardless of the content, it's poor game design on blizzard's part to have one role A doing role B's job better than role B can do it.

I honestly don't lose to a tank too often, even on trash pulls, though SCK seems to be a tad OP with AP and haste scaling (before without haste scaling is was pretty weak and obnoxious). As BrM people can't touch me with the new Keg Smash. Its over powered at least currently. As long as I use it on CD I will NEVER lose threat and usually lead damage AoE.

Single target I can do anywhere between 50-60k and I don't too often see tanks at that level single target.

I have yet to find a tank outdps me. In fact, I have only encountered two classes that have surpassed me or even kept up. Mage, and warlocks.

Altered a bit, but this :<

Tanks shouldn't be outdpsing many, if any, people on boss fights with no adds.

It will defiantly even out once people get gear. Blood IS doing stupid amounts of damage atm though.

While Blood Death Knights have been higher on damage than most other tanks, we’re expecting that the adjustments we’re making to the other tanking classes will close the gap. While we haven’t made any changes to Blood lately, we will be keeping a close eye on it.


Awesome.....

Ummm, it's not just 5mans. Our blood DK topped the meters on Stone Guard last night and if you look at WoL top 10s you will notice on 4 out of 6 of the fights a tank is in the top 10 dps.
