Well as most people have figured out, the 10 classes will never be perfectly balanced. There will always be a group of classes that dominates, a group that does ok and then a group that is at the bottom. Each group takes there turn. Years ago warlocks were OP, now Paladins are, in the near future another class will be.
It simply is not possible to achieve a perfect balance system when new items, spells and abilities are introduced on a consistent basis. If people were so concerned about balance then they would demand a halt to all of these factors until balance was achieved.
For the most part, Blizzard does a good job of juggling of the classes and I'm impressed by the steps they take to try and make it fair for everyone (eg. every patch makes changes to a class)
But its time to move on. There are a lot of fun classes that we could have had by now (from bard to battlemage) and while coming up with there concept, spells/abilities and how they fit in with other classes will surely take time, having only 1 new class in 5 years just is not good enough.
