all 3 roles are equally important, that´s why it´s called a trinity. and I disagree saying DPS is the easiest one to do, same as tanks and healers, it´s easy to be an ok dps but it takes knowledge of rotation and timing to make a good dps. And with good dps in a lot of fps you can actually survive and kill bosses if the tank accidentally died. Plus dps´s job is not only stay there making damage, you have to know which mob to attack to reduce the tank´s burden, I´ve seen 2 dps attacks 2 different elite mobs, none is the one tank is focusing on, resulting in tank losing aggro here and there. Also, dps needs to care about healers when tank loses aggro, you are the one should be hit not the healer. so in all, all 3 roles are important and take practise to be good.

I assumed that the OP was just trolling, but given that he's got just 4 posts total and all seem equally clueless, I think he's for real....

Okay, you have 4 or 5 minutes wait as dps, and then, when you finally wake up to that ? How do you feel ? It's important.

OK, so now you got me all curious, so I checked the OPs posting history, and well...

Yeah. I really wish I hadn't done that

Actually, it's called a trinity because it consists of three roles.

And the dps is the least important of those three roles because it's much easier to recover from a loss of one, even two, derpiesses than it is to recover from a loss of a tank or a healer. As far as rotations are concerned, I don't give them much weight in deciding the quality of a dps. I mean, you can have the most perfect rotation in the world but if you're standing in aoe stressing the healer, if you're not interrupting that enemy heal or if you're ignoring target priority - you're still a bad dps.

The dummy doesn't fight back. That's why it's called a dummy.

IMO the easiest of the 3 roles is tanking (at least on level 55. Sub 30 aoe-tanking is a pain in the backside)
I play all 3 roles in the endcontent

Ahh! You play Sudoku while you wait, eh? I generally just do dailies. After all, the wait time for DPS is ridiculously long, as the OP pointed out.

You can fight the waittimes by playing a tank or healer, that way you shorten the time for other DPS
