Sligthly longer answer: each spec has it's optimal bosses, engineering is viable/best for a lot of fights tho for others marksman or virulence will be best.
Is there a list somewhere of which specs/classes are best for which bosses?

I run Sabo on every boss in every operation with the sole exception of Torque, for which fight I run SS. Dps output is consistently superb for all other bosses.

Take the rotation presented in the guide at the start of this thread, master it and then modify it as necessary to suit your situational needs in any given fight.

If you play the game enough, you'll figure out eventually which specs you prefer to run on each boss. Typically a good rule of thumb is if the boss is mostly stationary (or if tanks can work well with an Engi/Sabo Sniper/Slinger), and if adds are frequent, then it's probably a good fight for this spec. There are I think 46 Operation Bosses (not including World Bosses or the other single instanced ones), so creating a list that long would take a little bit of time. I probably wouldn't be able to do it because I don't really know how well each spec is performing against the others (I know Engi is #1, but idk where Marksman and Virulence stand against each other), but someone who plays sniper a little bit more frequently might be interested in making one.

One could look at the parsley operations leaderboards for a quick overview of which spec has the biggest numbers between each fight. Only caveat being that if your tanks want to move too much you may be personally do better with MM or Viru than Engi even if it pulls the highest numbers.
