If monk didn't have positioning attached to some of it's skills and allowed greased lightning to stack it would probably have the highest DPS in game, it also has the highest skill class as far as DPS are considered. I just got my summoner at 30 and I can't wait to keep going with it. I have to say that this is the first mmo in a long time that causes me to lose track of time when I play it.
Greased lightning does stack. You get an additional stack at lvl 20 and another at lvl 40, for a total bonus of +21% dmg and +15% AS. however the positioning thing is true. which is part of the reason end-game teams prefer rDPS than mDPS (the other reasons being that rDPS are flat out safer since they can ignore PBAOE moves and the lack of positioning needs mean they have more consistent DPS).
So far i have seen a lot of good players for every class and i'd say that its generaly all about the player.
Its more like ranging difficulty.
From hardest to most easy ( just my opinion though)

However you are fked if you have been playing a Warrior only to find out that Endgame you are only a burden compared to paladins. And if you have been playing summoner only to realize that your pet sizes with your index finger and you are also a burden to the team in any fight where you have to burst down adds/ mechanics which is generaly the main DPS role.
Yea that and i have managed to see Behemoth a whooping 4 seconds xD
Still love the game tho. And they are already working on a fate solution. Who knows it may also be balanced some day :P
Everyone fears the Time Wizard
Well, my final opinion stands. I will utilize this server transfer asap, then quit until more updates roll in. I think there is more than enough content, but as a DRG I feel unwanted as hell.
The class is all cool, but I didn't want to feel like a lower-need. The general public wants to run safer parties and all that, which is understandable.
Game's top-notch, I just happen to prefer a more PVP and competitive environment for end-game. (1 person, not a numbers game).
EDIT: Someone compared the process to DCUO, while the game is 7000000x better, it kind of follows the same steps. Awesome leveling and then by max cap, running dungeons to gear out (Which is not bad, just **** DUTY FINDER LOL).
