In your experience, what are the top 3 DPS classes / specs in Cata thus far? What are the bottom 3?

You could also try to infer Blizz's opinion by checking patch notes to see who's getting buffed and nerfed in patch 4.0.6.

That is if you wanted more homework.

if your asking based on stats, check out the websites above.

if your asking based on my experience?

Top 3 dps :
1) Smart player
2) Player who doesnt die in fires
3) Player focusing on recount and therefore switching early to start on a different mob then pulling said mob off the tank >.<

Lowest 3 dps :
1) Player who stands in bad stuff and expects healer to keep him alive
2) Player who charges in and pulls for tank and tank sitting back /twiddling thumbs and /pondering dps' actions until dead before picking up the mobs
3) Players who actually focus on fight mechanics and switch targets when necessary (this applies especially to melee)

I hope you're kidding and not actually implying that doing what you're supposed to will hinder your dps.

It does usually hinder your dps though...

yeah... but just cuz you have an added assignment or fight mechanic doesn't mean you automatically have an excuse to be bottom 3....

This is wrong, stateofdps takes the top 25 wol parses per class, still not really touching the average player or guild.

Overall and adjusted torals use thousands of samples. The per boss is 180 sample per spec.

Oh. I saw the n=2000+ and assumed it was more of a sampling, otherwise you wouldn't need a n that larger if you're not trying to get a true picture.

Sort of. Stateofdps shows you how many logs they use to calculate the numbers and it's tunable to either the top 200 or 40 *players* doing each raid size.

The default is top 200 players in 25 man normal dungeons, with most specs having around 2k samples for overall and adjusted.

Definitely not the average player still.
