Tier 1: Warrior/Spriest/Rogue/Monk/Hunter
Tier 2: All others will be here
DPS is dmg per sec
That term is used in pve boss fights, I don't understand how it will work in arena. Are you going to see people saying 70K dps arms warrior lf 3v3 KFC 1DDK MMO hero? Or wil the neext season see people spec more in a pve spec to max their dps over control and suriv?
Know what the best part about playing a WW Monk through 5.0/5.1 is?
Come 5.2, the ability to distinguish a seasoned, talented WW monk from your average FotM reroller will require little more than two working eyes and about 15 seconds of observation.
Bad WW monks will still be horrible in 5.2. Monks like myself that slugged their way through 5.0 and 5.1 on hardmode will stand out easily.
Each tier is in order of best to worst. Updated this after post #24.
Tier 1, da best
Rogue, BM, Windwalker, Arms, Shadow
Arms may be high tier 2, but I won't believe it until 5.2 is live for a while and warriors have time to adjust to not playing like retards. Shadow is still on the chopping block, but I expect it to land in tier 1 or high tier 2.
Tier 2, good
Frost Mage, Ele, Warlock
Ele is gonna be way better, but I'm not ready to jump on the "best caster" bandwagon just yet. Warlocks are difficult to place because, even after individual nerfs, their synergy with other classes is always stellar.
Tier 3, so-so
DK, Feral, Ret, Enhance, Moonkin
I think the gap between the haves and the have-nots will be a little lower in 5.2; these specs won't be bad, just not quite as good. Unholy is looking to make a comeback. Feral is getting nerfed harder than people think IMO. Ret is getting some nice healing buffs, but it may still be too easy to zerg in 3's.
