To muddy the water a little - maybe - it depends in part on what you are fighting. Mages, at the end of the day, are meant to be high dps out of the door and destruction warlocks are the closest thing to mages. However:
If it is a single, non-heroic mob then builds with high single target damage will have a clear edge. When it comes to multiple targets AoE comes into its own. Finally DOTS come into there own when you fight mobs with lots of health - especially in long fights were mana may start to be a factor (potions can only do so much).
At the end of the day though my advice would be to play what you are comfortable with. Blizzard also tend to tweak things - and have always done a pretty good job - of preventing anyone combo being "overwhelmingly dominant" to the point that everybody you see is "X".
Originally posted by Raklen I currently have a dual specialized Tauren druid that is both DPS and a Healer but I am making another character. Any suggestions?
Ret Pally, don't let the noobs tell ya otherwise... it's all about the rotations.
Big thing about WoW is gear, gear makes the difference on how much DPS you will do. Every class can DPS big numbers if geared/spec'd properly and you run an addon to tell you your rotations.
Thats easy, go onto the forums and see what the FOTM is. Once you do try to get that class to cap and raid asap. At the end of that months cycle it will change to a new fotm. WoW has always been this way since the expansions started rolling out. With one hand they over buff with the other they over nerf.
This is also the reason why PVP is no fun, classes change every patch and its annoying to keep up with all of the inblanaces in pvp.
The rogue class is such an amazing dps class. Blizz realy nailed it and you relize why every other game sense WOW has followed there rogue template so closely.
Assuming OP is staying Horde
the dps racial is epic and the males look so cool with huge leather shoulders
There racials are epic for pvp, fear being such an importent mechanic in arena and rated BG play.
