So Death Goddess posted some stats regarding DPS Scaling in ICC 25, go check them out. She took the best figures from each class/spec combination on World of Logs. Her conclusion is that "Death Knights are in a sorry state" and "By the end of the 12 fights, the BEST DK spec, unholy, was beaten out by at least one spec from EVERY class except poor, poor shammies". Hmmm, that would be poor old Enhancement Shamans.
It gets worse in the Heroic figures, where on average Enhancement Shamans are the absolute bottom with 12.8k DPS compared to the top class/spec of Fury Warrior at 16.9k. Among the fairly bad figures we post, she raises an intriguing point "And as has already been stated, the dps for shammies was much worse than any other class. Obviously, Blizz' announcement that there will be other heroism classes paves the way for shaman to get a big boost - and rightfully so." I hope so too, although armed with these charts, if I post a bad performance I can now blame Blizzard on my guild forums ;)
Again this is an interesting post for any class/spec, so do check it out and comment.
