The only toons I play right now are my Druid and my DK, got a Mage but I don't enjoy it, neither do I enjoy the Monk.

Boomkin is my Druids spec atm, DK is frost ofcourse, I just casual it up on both but since I have literally nothing to do I figured i'd gear one of them for some Arena/RBG. Seeing how this game is World of Burstcraft now which toon you reckon I'd get the most giggles out of playing?

I gather DK is just frontloaded raw damage with fairly weak survivability whereas Boomkin less damage with more survivability, no?

tbh i think boomkins are still on same spot as they always were, load of dmg, some decent utility but shit for survival

main target to train, as always

DKs are as well squishy, but at least vs caster you have good chance to live...vs warriors on other hand, well, i don't think anyone is safe from 1 shot macro xD
shut up pvp guy

Dat der swifty 1 shot macro. I'll stick with the DK, grinding BG's in full pve gear is pretty easy so far haven't really bumped into an annoyance yet, top damage every bg, helps having almost 60k AP when trinkets proc and I pop all CD's <3

non-warrior melee survivability is pretty shit-tier(in comparison to top classes,) you're gonna get tunneled every game as a ret/rogue/enhance/DK/WW monk

I haven't seen any moonkins either so I can't really say what they're like at all.

I'd suggest feral if you'd be willing to respec, they're the hidden god-spec atm.

DK survivability sucks atm. Any good spellcleave, or anything with a warrior (or feral) in it will rip you apart.

But boomkin is probably the same, so I may aswell play whichever tunnels harder in world of burstcraft

Boomies are actually quite tanky now. That might get toned down if offspec heals get nerfed though. Don't underestimate perpetual rejuv.

balance is fantastic in rbgs as for arena feral or resto is more viable but all 3 specs have longer surv then a dk but dk has more damage as always

DK has horrid survivabilty as of right now.
Go druid.

Enter the nightmare, this future does implore,
A techno city state, a prison nothing more.
Rounded up like cattle, you're forced in to the trains,
Nothing that you've ever known will bring you so much pain.

Moonkins have much much better survivability than normal. Also have excellent utility, however cycloning is extremely difficult vs some teams. Solid spread damage, but hard to get kills outside of CDs.  Dks kinda suck.

Don't play a DK for your own sanity right now. In my opinion, they are the one of the worst dps classes right now. (rogues/monks are just as bad).

I think the things that made DK so much more fun in cata are simply gone from the game at this point. I remember that measuring frost vs unholy wasn't as straightforward as it is today. You would trade survivability for damage when swapping between the two specs. Now, Frost is basically arms warrior with magic defense instead of physical defense. It's a pretty boring spec, aside from the giggles you get when you obliterate a mage for 100k+ three times in a row.

Unholy is still good fun, but the pet just dies when pretty much any class so much as gazes in its direction.
