I did the fight as a melee with a lower gear level than you have. I've seen casters and melee with less gear than me do the fight before and after me, before and after the nerf.
Ascendance + Bloodlust say hello. As well as being melee and able to DPS while moving. What about the class that has no burst CDs and can't DPS while moving?
You've seen casters? Like mages or warlocks who can cast 100% on the move and have huge burst cooldowns? How about a boomkin who can get a cooldown which lasts for a majority of the fight which gives them a 20% burst WHILE healing them and causing their healing to do damage or another CD that gives them 25% increased damage for 30sec?
Tell me what do shadow priests have again? Oh right... two talents that rely on RNG and give nothing even remotely close to the bonuses seen above. Cast on the move? Nope, we can't do that either unless RNG favors us.

I've stood completely still from pull to enrage with full raid buffs, 300 food, Flask, double potions and zero cast time heals and been 10-20% off from the enrage. Trust me, if I were to move, the gap would increase as my class has zero way to DPS on the move unless the RNG gods favor us.
In fact I stood completely still with a training dummy and on times where RNG did not favor me, I could not make the enrage.
No there are no mechanics in this fight that matter because the enrage is too unreachable for some classes.
