    Default How Single Target PVE dps should be ranked:

    S Tier - highest dps/lowest survivability
    Mage(cloth)

    A Tier - high dps/low survivability
    Rogue(leather)

    B Tier - medium dps/medium survivability
    Cleric(chain)

    C Tier - low dps/highest survivability
    Warrior(plate)

    Various soul combinations should enable you to move up/down 1 tier.

    You didn't know games are being developed by overweight 20 somethings in Hello Kitty half shirts from their armchair?

    It's the 2010s.

    You really haven't done much research have you? A fully decked out t1 dps speced warrior has about 5.2k health.
    Rogues that melee dps has greater survivability than said warrior with skills and they bring CC to the table. We won't even mention that they can offheal/support.

    Why would you nerf a dps warrior to the lowest dps? No reason for the warrior class then period. They can't range dps. They can't offheal. They can only tank at that point. Guess what, so can a rogue and cleric.

    I take it you got steamrolled in a WF by a warrior. Check back when you hit 50 and check out WFs. You will make a new post about how mages should be lower on the dps tree since they can sit at range and pew pew. Meaning you got steamrolled. Well in a mages case, wtfbbqpwned.

    the dps totem pole should probably look like this:

    1. <people pure ST dps specced>
    2. <people who are ST and aoe specced>
    3. <people rocking pure aoe>
    4. <people not using just dps souls>
    5. <people not even using dps souls>
    6. <people not attacking>

    the difference between 1-3 should be relatively small, say 5-10% tops, people outside category 1 probably have some buffs that make up part of the difference.

    4 is going to be pretty far below 3 (effectively this will be the support souls), 5 and 6 are the tanks and healers.

    within each category there is variance, allowing for role variety on the class in question, player skill etc.

    DPS spectrum:

    Highest DPS: Whatever class you happen to be playing
    Mid DPS: Any other class, except...
    Lowest DPS: Whichever class defeats you most often in PvP

    I think we all can agree this is how things should be ranked.

    Why do people keep bringing up armor like it matters?

    Boss hits you...

    Mage for 20k, mage dies.
    Rogue for 17k, rogue dies.
    Cleric for 13k, cleric dies.
    Warrior for 10k, warrior dies.
    I have three rules which I live by: Never get less than 12 hours sleep, never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city, and never go near a lady with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. You stick with that, everything else is cream cheese.
