I played Vanilla from day one of EU release, during TBC and later on several private Vanilla servers.
I always had trouble deciding on a class, so I twinked a lot.
What felt like a curse back in the day helped me to get to know each class, their advantages and disadvantages.

Now, with Classic around the corner the decision is easy for me:

Druid (with a 1/29/21 hybrid spec)

+ Druid lore
+ Your own class zone (Moonglade) and https://classic.wowhead.com/spell=18960 ... -moonglade
+ No downtime while leveling due to the ability to regenerate mana while fighting in https://classic.wowhead.com/spell=768/cat-form or https://classic.wowhead.com/spell=5487/bear-form
+ Forms to deal with almost every situation while soloing and to travel faster
+ Water breathing in https://classic.wowhead.com/spell=1066/aquatic-form to do some otherwise annoying underwater quests
+ Gathering herbs without switching out of forms
+ Being able to perform any role in dungeon groups, especially tanking - or being the wild card (dpsing, off tanking, off healing)
+ Buffing, healing and rezzing other players
+ A mix of melee and range attacks
+ Hots and dots
+ Crowd control (https://classic.wowhead.com/spell=339/entangling-roots + https://classic.wowhead.com/spell=2637/hibernate)
+ https://classic.wowhead.com/spell=29166/innervate
+ The most efficient healing spell (https://classic.wowhead.com/spell=5188/healing-touch)
+ https://classic.wowhead.com/spell=5570/insect-swarm!
+ https://classic.wowhead.com/spell=5215/prowl to sneak past mobs and other players
+ Excellent preraid tanking gear
+ Being able to heal (and off tank) in raids
+ With the right (hybrid) gear being a force in PvP, especially in 1-on-1 situations
+ One of, if not the best flag carrier in WSG
+ Azgaz and the "Nerf druids" PvP movies
+ Some of the better looking tier sets
+ A high skill ceiling, but once you get the hang of it very rewarding to play
+ A class to fulfill all needs (melee dps, range dps, tank, healer) and to end almost all twinking desires

Did I already mention druid's and especially this spec's amazing versatility?
Oh, I did? Damn...

Either Hunter or Priest. Preferably Alliance.
If so, Human Priest for SPI, and NE Hunter for AGI.

I'm going to go Priest as my main, I played my UD Priest from Vanilla through BFA (with a few breaks) and then level UD Mage

I plan on leveling a priest and going holy at 60. All of my WoW experience in the past like 10 years was PvP only. Want to see some raids and I want to try a healer out :)

UD Frost mage. I was a Troll mage last time and generally stuck with POM Pyro spec because it allowed me to 2-shot even the best geared and highest-rank players in the game....every 3 min.

Hunter so I can don a bitch ass smirk while I run past everyone below lvl 40.
Hunter so I can sic my pet on people while I kick my feet up and eat pizza in shadowmeld.
Hunter so I can ask in general chat why everyone else is leveling so much more slowly than I am.
Hunter so I can roll on every item in the game.
Hunter so I can track my enemies when they rez, so there's no escape.
Hunter so I can eaves drop on everyone in the zone with eyes of the hawk.
Hunter so I can solo dungeon bosses.
Hunter so I can kite world bosses to the main cities like it's just another day at the office.
Hunter so I can tell people they shouldn't have brought a knife to a gun fight.
Hunter so I can shoot people with a crossbow while simultaneously doing backflips.

First, I wanna make myself a huntard coz I really like the petsystem: How you actually have to go and learn the skill you want and not just go and pay up to a trainer to get it for your pet.

Second, I wanna make myself a holy priest coz I am curious about how to heal in Classic. I've mained a Holy Priest since retail MoP basically, and wanna see if I can actually heal in Classic or if I will just give up after killing my friends multible times haha.

I started off as a holy priest but then rolled a warrior. Had a ton of fun tanking, and it's really easy to find dungeon groups, so I'm going to roll a Warrior again. In the past I've only rolled Undead or Tauren warriors, but this time around I think I'm gonna go Orc. Seems like I've been missing out. :)

I've played all of the original classes and without a doubt, the Warrior was the fun! Thus, I will play a warrior! I might roll a shadow priest one day too.. we'll see ;)

I'm still on the fence. I've played Mage for most of my time playing WoW in total, whether retail or vanilla private servers, and I know the class super well, but I'm weighing other options. I've leveled a feral druid last time I played to any meaningful extent on a private server, and I'm interested in playing one, but also thinking about shaman.

Additionally, part of my class decision is based on whether or not there will be TBC after Naxx or Blizzard will develop additional content for vanilla. Because I'd play the shit out of an elemental shaman in TBC and that spec is, sadly, not particularly good in vanilla outside of PvP.

Druid. I love the feel of the class and I've always mained druid. I'd like to play balance since it's the spec I'm most familiar with but I want to PvE. But all in all, the lore and whole atmosphere around the druids is amazing to me.

I plan to play multiple classes eventually. But first I will level my Dwarf Hunter to max level. After that I think I want to play a priest again like my first character on an EU server.

I will probably roll Druid or Shaman, play them as melee (at least pre-60), with self healing and travel form/ghost wolf for a smooth experience. I have played both classes before so in a way it would make sense to try Paladin (melee/selfheal etc.) but I just don’t feel it when thinking about Paladins.

Paladin.

PvP healing is a blast and allows you to turn the tide of battle.

I've rolled warrior on my horde char once and I wanted to try fury. I bumped into a recruitment officer of one guild while we were doing a Stratholme run. I was tanking and he told me that they needed an off-tank and that I was kinda good at it in his opinion, so I tried it and had a blast. Eventhough I enjoyed it a lot, I realized that it wasn't the best role for me I liked the occasional need of being the one in charge and what not but after some time I didn't like the fact I had the typical tank responsibility. You have to know the fights through and through even from other roles perspective and not make any mistakes. I like having some room for silly mistakes and dont tryhard from time to time. Thats why I would go fury if I were to play warrior again. You will have to occassionally off-tank anyways so you wont miss that experience as fury.

Hey Evoe! Sounds like you’ll be a popular tank during levelling wih that plan :smile: Does raid tanking not appeal to you in terms of fun?
Hey there! What a nice forum! To answer your question: I'm a rather inexperienced tank, always been playing ranged dps. Also not sure if I'm able to hit that 100% attendance for being a tank. I'm also not the shot caller type usually so being just fury dps/OT will be enough. I'm currently practicing warrior leveling on a pserver and I'm really liking the playstyle after playing ranged dps for so long. Hamstring-kiting ftw. :cool:

Human or Gnome warrior. Gonna tank all dungeons once for gear just to smoothen out the leveling experience. And at 60 it'll be really fun to spam dungeons for that sweet pre-bis and then do awesome dmg in raids as fury :)

Troll Hunter or NE Hunter. I just enjoy the solo leveling experience of Hunter.

Mage is always a good choice. Needed for all purposes, easy to level, good pvp class, self-sufficient, teleports for trravellig.

I will be rolling Paladin this time. Havent played him yet and my guild needs more of them.
I've always wanted to roll a paladin. I love how they can wear mail and plate armour types yet still heal.

I'll probably be playing a mage. I love their abilities, lore, aesthetic design, and so much more about them.

Also, having the Blink ability is incredibly useful for levelling on foot, as is the ability to conjure food and water.
