4. Whining in any form is forbidden. Blizzard is not incompetent or stupid and they are not intentionally screwing you over and neither is anyone else. If all you're going to do is complain, don't bother posting.
It's a somewhat disturbing development with how the raid buffs/debuffs are shared atm, as virtually all raid buffs can now be covered by the so called "pure" dps classes (ie. the 4 classes with 3 dps talent trees + warrior, who for some reason has dps in a completely different league than other hybrids).
If we look at the caster buffs in a raid, we get the following:
5% crit: Covered by fury warrior (essentially the highest dps spec in the game atm, and I have a hard time seeing them get nerfed to "hybrid" dps anytime soon)
Burst haste (heroism/bloodlust): Mage (that's the other king of dps)
5% spell haste: Destruction Warlock (already stated by blizzard to be sub par atm, so expect a relative dps increase)
6% spell power: Mage
10% spell power: Fire mage and Demo lock
5% spell crit: Mage, Warlock
8% spell dmg taken: Muti rogue and warlock
So what we pretty much have here, is mage+warlock (which most likely will be the 2 caster classes with highest individual dps as they're the "pure" classes) causing a complete annihilation of moonkin, elemental shaman and shadow priest (replenishment can be provided by other means aswell) in raids, unless the 5% dps taxing system is removed.
5% dps tax? Way bigger than that in its current implementation.
Surv Hunters and Frost mages bring replenishment, too.
