As a Madness Sorc:
1. My class is seen as an minor annoyance that if left unchecked COULD cause a problem down the road.
2. My view on the class is that we have so much potential and out put so little compared to other classes.
The problem is you can focus a dps sorc and they will do no damage and probably die. You can also not focus a dps sorc and the damage they produce still isn't that threatening.
