    You asked what's the best.. not what would be considered a Dot class....

    well sin and inq both use a number of dots...haven't really seen them referred to as dot classes
    on the forums though

    that being said if they are considered dot classes they would both be contenders for "best dot class"

    hence, "what is considered a dot class" has a direct bearing on "what's the best dot class"

    Warlock forever...at least for me. The mobility, durability, and timed burst is great. I only wish the cast time Fear didn't insta-break on damage and the nukes hit a bit harder.

    I always thought Sin was the best DoT class merely because they get the advantage of having their damage over time (lol dots?) referred to as bleeds, thus making them unable to be removed with cures. A DoT class in PvP that can't have their DoT's removed? I'd say that is pretty damn solid.

    On a side note, if you want to use one of the best DoT abilities. I used to troll WF's with this spec for comical relief. Horrible spec, but lol-worthy dot ticks when you do it.

    Unfortunately 61pt BD doesn't work with global abilities, only BD specific. However, the 51pt, that like gives +50% crit chance and crit bonus. Spec high enough to grab that nifty global talent that effects all Rogue damage (iirc, maybe just physical?) and then put enough points into Sab to beef up Spiked Charge, the DoT charge. The numbers are pointless that I have to reference now but, I recall around level 60 using that spec and watching it tick away for 5 - 8k per tick. Granted theres 6 million ways to foil the spec and it's quite useless. It was all worth it to see warriors running away will steady 7,500's hit them. At at 60 when your HP was between 24 - 28k....well...it was hilarious.

    Again let me close by saying, this spec if awful and you are probably more viable DPS'ing as a bard hands down. But I always sought out fun gimmicks in a game where every spec is so straight-forward and mundane. Just for the threads sake, that gimmick was how I was able to get the biggest DoT ticks my rogue ever obtained in PvP.

    Makes me wonder how many of my specs that were good have gone to crap and how many that were sub-par are probably better now. Sounds like MM is riding the high wave again.

    Warlock is terrible, and it's really the only other class I'd consider a "DOT class".

    Probably Reaver right now. Warlock is always good if you can manage to stay in the back and not take dmg, Inq and Cabalist are not terrible too. On mage I usually run full Dom with 15 points in lock to boost dots and charge gain.
