    Yeah spamming one button is hard.

    Your whole list is awful, I'll simply assume you are an Archon and totally biased.

    Also there is no easiest/hardest role overall, being a raid healer on Volan/Aky is clearly easier than Archon /sarcasm. Lots of fights bore the tanks to death, especially in lower tiers.

    ...No.

    1) Raid healers (on fights with significant raid damage)
    2) DPS
    3) Tank healers
    4) Support
    5) Tanks

    I really cannot overstate how little skill it takes to competently tank raid encounters. There's certainly more you can do to optimize it, but the difference between a fantastic tank and a mediocre tank is much, much smaller than the gap between an ordinary DPS and a great DPS, or a run-of-the-mill healer and a skilled healer.

    I like how "dps" is clumped together as if playing a warrior is as hard as mage/cleric.

    Additionally, Oracle as easiest spec to play? You've got to be kidding me.

    I think all roles have their "hard moments" and "easy ones" but I think the question should be more like which spec is harder to play.

    So the OP says Archon is harder than Bard, which I can agree with. However, I think Oracle is harder to play than Archon. Of course, I'm only speaking in terms of all 3 players min/maxing their rotations in a raid.

    Bard has significantly fewer abilities (raid relevant) than Pyrochon so, in my opinion, Pyrochon is more challenging to min/max. Oracle suffers greatly from messing up the rotation, whereas Pyrochon not so much. So, in my opinion, Oracle is harder to play than Pyrochon.



    I completely disagree with clumping all of the DPS together. Example: Shaman is harder to play than Inquisitor. I don't know much about other classes, but everyone has at least 1 spec that's more challenging than their other specs. I'm certain that Assassin is harder to play than Ranger, for example.
