    Default Current Class DPS Tiers?

    So a few members of a guild that I raid with and I were discussing whereabouts on the parse our DPS classes should (or shouldn't) be, and there was a bit of disagreement amongst us as to how this list would nominally look.

    Understanding that of course many factors such as the raid's make-up, SKILL, and experience can greatly influence how a parse will look, I'd like to get an idea from others as to how a DPS tier system might look in current end-game. I know this might be a touchy subject for some, or an easy answer for others, but I'd like to hear from those of you that are in successful progression raids as to how things average out.

    In my head, and from reading some other posts, I came up with, roughly:

    Tier 1 - Predator, Sorcerer, BL
    Tier 2 - Rogue, Summoner
    Tier 3 - Enchanter, Bard, Crusader, Brawler
    Tier 4 - Warrior, Cleric, Shaman, Druid

    (No particular order other than the Tier, was hoping to narrow it down a bit better. I realize you can't create a structure that is that same 100% of the time, but I have to believe there is some consistency at the top.)

    I don't consider myself hard-core, but I do give 100% in raids, know my class, how to support other classes, and have generally a good understanding of mechanics. But I'm not in a progression guild, so I don't see their parses on a bi-weekly basis.

    Any insight from educated raiders would be kindly appreciated.

    (P.S. -- if the highest DPS in your raid is a Summoner, followed by an Enchanter, followed by a Bard, followed by a few Sorcerers and more Summoners, from what I've seen, this may indicate sub-optimal DPSing? We are ultimately trying to identify potentional slackers.)

    T1 - Assassin, Beastlord, Wizard
    T1.25 - Warlock, Ranger, Conjuror, Necromancer, Swashbuckler, ((Brigand))
    T1.5 - Reckless SK
    T2 - Brigand, Reckless Fighters
    T3 - Dirge, Troub, Illy, Coercer, Inq, Fury, Mystic, Warden, Fighters
    T4 - Templar/Defiler


    I feel there's a slight gap between assassin/wizard/beastlord and the rest of the "t1" dps. Also brigands are up there because if you take into account their debuffs they're also pretty OP. Reckless SK/maybe a reckless brawler idk comes next, brigand/other reckless fighters after. Support/Healers/Fighters, Templar/Defiler.

    Thanks. This is exactly what I was looking for: something more than my much more generalized listing.

    Now I can go back with something solid as a counter to "Necros top the parse in most progression guilds." Also time to give some Sorcerers a piece of my mind.

    really depends on encounter too, mostly if its a solo mob vs 3 mobs vs a solo mob with groups of adds popping, etc.

    we dont have a bst but im pretty sure theyre on par or above the other top peeps. also no ranger, but w/e. as far as the rest is concerned, on a given average fight where all classes can go all out, in orderish, we get something like:

    T1 Lock, Necro, Ass, Wiz, Conj, Reckless SK, Me on a good day (bruis),
    T2 Brig, Swash, Reckless fighters
    T3 Chanters, Bards, Fighters, Inq, Fury, Mystic, Warden, Udaok
    T4 Defiler, Temp

    keep in mind that usually, the more complicated the script is the more the teirs will skew in favor of casters. on drool-central burst burn fights, Its hard to beat a Bst, Ass, or even reckless Bruiser!
