Warriors are the anti lock. Always have been. Sub rogues are a close second, but the fear immunity of warriors combined with MS to keep their SL and Drain Life in check allows them to just rape locks. This coming from a warrior.

Warriors have a major counter though, its the same one they've always had. Frost mages.

Druids can spec into feral charge and get a perma CC rotation going. While I think this is fine, the real problem is that they can maintain healing on their partner while doing it. This is what makes druids OP in 2v2 Arena. Their presence in 3v3 and 5v5 is much smaller. Druids serve a key role in PvE as well, but they're hardly OP.

PVP has made leaps and bounds from launch which basically didn't have a PVP system. Battleground ranks were fun, but it wasn't skill dependent. Some of the worst players I ever met were rank 14. Arena changed all that though. While yes, you can get easy epics by losing 10 games a week, but to actually compete in higher brackets (1800+) it takes extensive knowledge of your class and how to counter every other class. Arena is easily the most skill dependent part of the game.

That said, PVP simply can't keep my interest. I can't simply login to Arena for a couple hours a day. I miss raiding, the sense of accomplishment for getting top 100 US kills was great. Yes, it was a huge time investment even outside of raiding, but I enjoyed every minute of it. Sadly my job doesn't allow me to raid so after nearly 4 years I'm considering just quitting.

After 310 days play on my mage.
After 53 days played on my shaman.
After 26 days played on my warrior.

Over a year spent playing. That's quite depressing.
