Best Burst Class

Arenas
This really doesn't need to be a long post so I'll just get straight to the point. I know Warriors, BM Hunters and Elemental Shamans have some pretty extreme burst damage in PvP but I can't really tell who's killing me faster when I die in under a second. I'm planning on leveling one of these classes to focus on RBGs and Arenas and I was wondering what everyone's opinion on the best burst class is and what the best overall burst class is (with high burst and high sustained).

Thanks for your help!
How can you put Ele Shaman up there when there are frost mages, destro warlocks, and warriors.

I really wish there was a reputation system on these forums, or a way to see how many likes a post has.
I forgot about Destro Warlocks and Chaos Bolt, but my question still stands; what's the best burst class at the moment?
Avoid Ele Shamans like the plague unless you are a masochist.

For easy mode faceroll burst roll a Warrior.

For slightly harder faceroll burst roll a Frost Mage

For somewhat harder faceroll burst roll a Destrolock.

This is accurate now. This will not be as accurate come 5.1.

Also gotta put frost dks up there. Actually, all classes can burst hard as hell right now. Even BM hunters in 5.1 with all their nerfs burst insanely hard (I'd argue still the highest of all other classes).

For pure burst yeah I'd include Frost Deathknights.

The problem is as a whole the class can't stand up in rated PvP nearly as well as the 3 aforementioned classes can. No survivability at all.

And you are? Oh right--a nobody.
Burst? Okay. Let me list the classes with stupidly high burst:

Druids (All)

Frost DKs

Hunters (All)

Mages (All)

Paladin (Ret and Holy)

Rogues (All)

Ele Shaman

Destro Lock (Demo can too, but it's not really popular)

Warriors (All)

....

Golly.
