    Need input here.

    For those of us who like big numbers and striking fear into the hearts of fragile, defenseless levelers, what’s the go-to spec?

    Assumptions:
    1. Fully geared, BIS
    2. Skill/nuance not taken into account; assumed complete comfort and finesse with each class/spec

    You’re right - removed that part and just looking at today’s state of classes/specs because some have been consistently OP.

    aimed shot and execute are, I think, the hardest hitting abilities in the bracket.

    Enjoy.

    Thanks :)

    Ik you’re an Arms Warrior advocate....for min/maxing do you take Tauren/Dwarf for 2% Crit increase, Vulpera for damage racial, Orc for racial, or Dark Iron for racial for maximum burst?

    I play dark iron for the dot/nova clear, which I actually end up using more for defensive purposes than offensive. And also because they look cool. to a lesser degree, the indoor move speed is a (very small) advantage for chasing FCs in the base. But not enough for you to actually care.

    Tauren is a great choice for stomp, given warriors lack of CC otherwise. If I rolled a horde warrior, I'd probably go tauren. Highmountain is also a good choice, as the racial charge can be used for disengaging/chasing. Vulpera would be good given that their racial scales with crusader but if youre looking forward, both crusader and the racial could be nerfed. Dont build twinks around gimmicks.

    Thanks! What race (considering both racial and base Agility stat) is best for MM for min/maxing Crit output?

    Arcane mage can hit 4 charge arcane blast + 4 charge barrage + Lights Judgement at all at the same time if you are close to the target

    Vulpera survival and mm hunter. Most fun I've had in a long time. The corrosive vial really seals the deal with big damage for survival. The heal is also amazing. Aimed shots can crit clothies for 1200-1300, but I only mm when alliance have 4+heals. Its boring as shit.

    Boomie is sick as fuck with a double starsurge.

    Warrior (Arms or Fury) and Ret shine when you have crusaders and support to back you up, otherwise it's very much a range meta at 20.

    MM Hunter, Arcane Mage, Balance Druid are the fotm options, druids having the most dynamic playstyle of the 3. The ability to land an empowered lunar strike followed by a double starsurge combo can definitely push a contested fight in your favor. Double aimed is also a ton of burst, but you're not always given the window to stand still and chain them together. Aimed+Arcane shot can easily put you in the 1200-1700dmg range. Arcane mage is all about throughput and they excel at that, however missile spam isn't exactly the most engaging playstyle. Yeah you can dive into sheep range (and you should at times), but a lot of the time you'll be standing max range firing off a steady stream of missiles.

    The Vulpera racial is definitely top tier. Even from a defensive standpoint, the heal is incredibly useful. Tauren is your 2nd best option, but more useful for melee classes in my experience.

    That shit is nasty, been playing my warrior the last 2 days, but it's hard to reach out and touch someone when the whole enemy team is mage and hunter.

    You're gonna kill em' dead.

    On a serious note a mm hunter can do the damage or close to it from range with an aimed shot arcane shot, and bonus points for vulpera racial. Just kind of broken.
