(and the L30 talents don't heal enough and cost too much to be effective).
And they're getting nerfed next patch.

That's because Blizzard is, supposedly, trying to make it so that hybrid dps specs offer less healing / raid cooldowns in order to put them on par with pures.. Entire -classes- which bring only dps with no off-healing and only warriors have raid cooldowns.
I hate to say this, but windwalkers are actually the best designed hybrid dps exactly for this reason. They have to earn their raid spot almost entirely with dps, which given how hybrid tax is an ideaology the devs are no longer following, is exactly how it should be.
11/03/2012 03:04 PMPosted by PandoyaDKs have so much utility I'm not even bothering listing here, I'll just mention one: AMZ.
11/03/2012 02:47 PMPosted by SlantIf other DPS specs had the same constraints, that would be a valid stance to take. But they don't.
As much as I hate to do what Blizz did back in BC to shaman, this is a definite case of WW monks not being underpowered in that aspect, but everyone else just being overpowered in it.
11/03/2012 04:40 PMPosted by PandoyaThere's a very clear distinction between hybrid class design and pure class design, and players take that into account when they choose a class to play, it's something players expect from a class.
11/03/2012 04:40 PMPosted by PandoyaHonestly, you are only addressing 1 issue out of many that I have outlined here.
11/03/2012 04:57 PMPosted by SlantStop talking about pures vs hybrids. Nobody wants to have that conversation here. Thank you.
11/01/2012 10:53 AMPosted by PandoyaBeing a former Retribution Paladin myself, I'm used to having a lot of utility to offer to my raid, off-healing, etc. Druids also have a lot of raid utility to offer, and that's what I would expect from a class that can fulfill 3 roles in the game. When you look at your spellbook, you feel like a Rogue.
11/01/2012 10:58 AMPosted by PandoyaCurrently Windwalker DPS is not great, but it's not bad either, but I feel that we're going to fall behind by the end of this tier. And since we do not offer great utility to the raid, it's much better to bring a Feral, DK, Warrior, Rogue or Ret.
Can you actually keep a straight face and tell yourself that if every hybrid dps could do pure damage, whilst still holding onto their utility and raid cooldowns, pures would be brought to progression minded raids at all?
