Damn son. Don't even get to make the list.
It's ok sancty, I see how it is. With Arms current ptr changes I think they shot past ret by a mile. I'll send you a postcard from all the way up here on the dragon slaying meters.

Arms isn't going to make the list even in 5.2. Sorry.

Also, shouldn't Frost DK's place either above or right below Fury warriors? Last time I checked they're pretty crazy

Someone should really read patch notes lol.
Deep wounds 100% buff. Haste value 50% buff. Slam buffed 30% weapon damage. Overpower now 1 sec gcd and able to spam if stacks pooled as well as reducing cd on mortal strike lol. Oh yeah and mastery also can reset cs as well.
They actually had to tone arms down as well as fury with the cs nerf.

Their absence on the list should tell you something.

In terms of raid desirability
Warrior
DK
Rogue
Ret
Enh
WW
Feral

For classes that have multiple specs I have lumped them together under the assumption that in general the strongest spec will be played and/or people will respec to cover spec weaknesses.

I wouldn't put feral that low, especially on fights where they can bleed cleave, its just 90% of ferals don't understand energy pooling and try to use doc when they have no idea how to use it.

Why have ret so high on your list?

Fury, Masterfrost, combat/sin, are all up there, and are the most sought after for guilds needing melee dps.

The rest of the melee are all firmly mid to low on the dps charts, and are only desired if the raid group in question is already full of the above specs.

Ret lacks offensive raid utility but has a very powerful set of defensive utility.

Because ret isn't as awful as you forum warriors make it out to be.

Oh how lock's have fallen. Especially destruction, my spec. Mages are still top tier as always, however.

Heres the real list im seeing too many made up ones:

ASN Rogue
COM Rogue
ENH Shaman
FST Death Knight
FRY Warrior
FRL Druid
WW Monk
RET Paladin

ret is really the worst melee at the moment. you the data is especially accurate with them because they are one of the most played specs in the game.

this! good god, i looked at that list. its absolutely horrible and nowhere even close to what is actually going on in raids. also, just to prove its inability to understand classes correctly, any assassination rogue who is aiming at capping expertise is doing it wrong. their guide tells you to do so, which is incorrect. its been this way for a very long time
