What class will you be playing once Classic releases and why? I'm curious to know the arguments for each choice as I am in doubt myself.

Firelord has convinced me that elemental shaman with windproc is a lot of fun and very flexible.
That and a warrior for tanking. Personally I’ll be very focused on guild building and organising.

I was choosing between a Warrior Tank / Priest (Holy) / Druid (Resto) / Pala (Holy)

I was considering Warrior because I'd like to have a challange and the Warrior is one of the most challenging classes in Vanilla. Levelling as one is by far the hardest of all classes but rewarding as you reach 60 and start getting some good gear. Warrior imo is one of the most complex classes when it comes to the amount of information you need to know, preparation and theory-crafting before getting into the action. Though challenging, Warrior is definitely very entertaining class to play overall.

Ultimately I think I will roll the Priest healer as I would like to try healing once again and Priest is probably the most versatile healer of all 4 healing classes, not neccessarily the strongest healer. I've also considered a Druid which might be a bit underrated due to the actual difficulty of competing with other healing classes. In fact Druids are amazing healers and can actually be at the top of the healing meters when well geared and when played well. They sure have quite high skill cap and so are fun to play. Paladins are by some people considered to be the strongest healers in the game, especially in the early stages due to their high mana efficiency, quick heals and tankiness. They have probably the easiest and after some time maybe ''boring'' rotations of all healers and as I'd rather have a more dynamic and interesting spell rotations I'm probably not gonna roll Paladin for that reason. Rolling Alliance so I didn't bring Shaman to consideration.

Hunter, of course. There’s nothing like the sweet tears of betrayed guildmates :razz:

I’ve got some other ideas like perhaps a shadow priest for pvp and warlock synergy

I feel like picking a class I always wanted to try - warlock. Going horde just to relive the soundtrack playing in the background of the familiar zones.

Will stay as casual as possible. No stress. Pure pleasure.

I will pick Nigh Elft Rogue, rogues in Vanilla are tons of fun, specially in PvP (wich is the main thing i care about).

Plus, they're so good for leveling! But I fear too many people will play Hunter or is that a misconception?

You and I are on the same page. I'm considering Warlock as well, on Horde, and playing it casually to fully enjoy the experience.

I have yet to decide what class I want to play. I don't know what I want to start out as. There are so many different combinations.

Shaman is a class close and dear to me, definitely. Orc Shaman. My big dream scenario is of course to get my hands on Sulfuras, and then go on my pilgrimage of world PvP, having those dangerous windfury spikes that will certainly shock and put people into fear.

Yes, I am well aware that there is a large case of RNG, and the wait window can be long—making that wait window a struggling one. But this is exactly what I am prepared for, and the satisfaction gaining that huge spike is one of the better feelings around.

I know that gaining Sulfuras will be a hard challenge, and that Shamans are pushed into restoration. Is this challenge I am willing to take? Maybe.

But, as I said at the start, there are so many different combinations. Another one dear to me is Priest, Undead Priest, since this is what I played in Classic majority of the time. However, do I want to be Horde? Probably, but I cannot ignore how legendary Dwarf Priests are. A force enough to pull my faction strings.

Please be careful. While Shamans are great, the Windfury proc wait is indeed in the hands of RNG :mrgreen:

But it's worth it, in my opinion.

I really can't decide. Probably Hunter. I like really active, dynamic play styles. I've thought about Paladin for coolness, but they're incredibly dull to level, and ultimately I don't think I'd enjoy healing enough to do it end game. Then I think Druid, because I can do a bit of everything. Tank 5 mans, heal end game, or really try hard to feral dps. Then I think, hmm, warrior would be a fun challenge. I like tanking, but maybe now that I'm older I won't want all that responsibility...

And on and on and on.

I'll probably decide when I get to the character creation screen and pick something else entirely.

You can go Warrior DPS which is a lot of fun as well

Honestly, if I go Alliance, I think I might as well focus on Paladin. The healing focus, or even the buffing focus is not something I'm even against if I end up in raids. Plus, whether people want to believe it or not, Retribution in PvP was a tank in itself. Retribution Paladin in PvP were really good. The damage was good, their tankiness and survival even greater, and their supporting abilities crazily good.

As well as a relatively free mount at level 40, letting yourself hold on to your dear gold.

These decisions are truly making me want to write down pros and cons in a Word document.

Don't let anyone tell you what to roll. Even Retri Pally's are somewhat viable in raids if you are willing to go an additional mile to master it. Check out Esfand's channel, he can explain you how you can actually be true ret pala god. And what you said about the retri pala tank is damn true, they soak a lot of dmg, and they can afford to do so. I've seen even hybrid holy/prot spec which allows you to heal raids and still being able to tank 5-men dungeons such as Stratholme/Scholo or even some cluster packs in raids due to your awsome aoe tanking potential.

Warrior, unless my current Paladin changes my mind but it doesn't look like it. Feels like warrior has more viable hybrid specs but it could also be that I have less experience with Paladin's.

It just depends on what playstyle suit's you more. Warriors are basically much more complex and so are fun to play but require a lot more knowledge and practice in order to master it. Holy Pal is easier to play but have simpler rotations so it might get a bit boring after some time.

I'm not considering PVP at this point.
