What is the best PvP DPS class for 5.2?

Arenas
With all of the nerfs and buffs that came along with the new patch.. Which class is the FOTM? Or better yet which is your favorite? Feel free to discuss, or go ahead and vote on the page below. I'm really interested to see what people's choices are.

Every time you have to ask this question just play a Mage.

By the time you level and get gear there will be a nerf
play a dk actually learn the class and the abilitys instead of complaining on the forums all the time about how they die to fast or dont have cc .....rofl... profit.
Mage, rogue, hunter always seem to be viable. All have good DPS and CC.
Spriest, Frost Mage and Rogues. Unholy DKs and BM hunters are really good too.

Idk about hunter balance but don't make him play a rogue. They go from so bad or meh that it takes an expert to play them well, or so op even an average rogue can cause trouble.

As they should being pure DPS classes with no other role in the game.

This is the most accurate statement iv seen on here in a while, well done.

All of those are solid options. if you want ranged class id go with Spriest right now if u want melee id go with Dk. (because even though roguei is better right NOW, it is pretty hard to play once they get nerfed again)

This. Also, cool name.
I just started wow and hunter is really fun to play and I kill baddies rather easily, in comparison to other classes.
Spriest and mage, everything else either plummets or is complete god mode.
mages have and will remain op dont worry about the nerf blizz clearly and proven to refuse to fix mages for a while now
Hunters, if left alone seem to be extremely deadly.

The amount of damage, plus the CC.. Concussive to frost trap is just ridiculous.

They've never been bad.

The only issue would be learning the class and mastering it.
spriest and hunter

B-B-BUT LAST SEASONNNNNnnnn
one thing will always remain true ...

A good rogue has the ability to beat any class in the game.

The problem is rogues have the highest skill cap ever. They can lock down or do damage or lockdown a lil bit and do damage they have the ability to spread cc like a plague when played right.

Mages will never see a bad day ( Ghostcrawler mains a mage). Locks will always have a niche a skilled lock can be almost as effective as a rogue, the skill floor is much lower than a rogue but the cap is not to far away in my humble opinion on skill caps, rogue> feral>disc priest>lock=mage>ww monk.

every class with a high skill cap can be fotm'ish it just depends on how skilled the player behind it becomes.
