I'll be playing an Undead Warlock. I love the casting animations of Undead and Warlocks are very good all-arounders. Plus, they just get stronger in the later Raids.

In the sort of stuff I'm into (structured, open-world PvP) they are insanely good. To name a few advantages:
  • Being able to summon a raid anywhere with just 2 rogues with me enables a lot of capital city shenanigans.
  • The ability to use Healthstone+Death Coil+Health Potion+Sacrifice Voidwalker+Soul Stone+Sacrifice Voidwalker (with Fel Domination) all while DoT-ing enemies with Siphon Life mean you're extremely hard to kill in a large group and it allows you to stay in the front line better than almost any other class.
  • The CC you have with Single Fear+AoE Fear+AoE stun (Infernal) is amazing against groups of any sizes
  • Eye of Killrog is an amazing and versatile scouting tool, it's only second to Far Sight/Eagle Eye in very open spaces
Holy moly that healthstone+death coil ad infinitum chain is awesome - I would never have expected that kind of HP from a lock. Every day’s a schoolday!

Likewise with Eye of Killrog I can see that working very nicely for a city raid leader.

I'll also let you in on another little known tidbit - there's a talent in the first row of the Demonology tree that increases the potency of your Healthstone with every point (2 points maximum). In vanilla, a Healthstone with 0/2 talent points counted as a separate item from a Healthstone with 1/2 points, and likewise for one with 2/2 points in that specific talent.

So yes, you could legitimately have / use 3 different Healthstones if you had 3 Warlocks who agreed to allocate that point in that certain way.

Interesting, but I doubt it will work that way on Classic.

They claimed I didn't but I did...

Back in the days I played Orc/warrior, I remember I had some struggle to level as fast as my friends back then.
Now I'm looking forward to priest or mage, since my friend will play Paladin.

Seems more like a bug than an accidental ‘feature’. Is this a pserver confirmed thing @Nymis or is it confirmed from vanilla?

Oh, definitely. I knew about it in TBC (when I first started playing) and it's been documented on vanilla wiki as well. Adding to that, the patch 3.0.8 comments when it was removed. Also found a little "exploit" in Arena where a Warlock could conjure 3 different stones by himself adding the points in between casts. Also found an old little "exploit" in Arena where a Warlock could conjure 3 different stones by himself adding the points in between casts.

Yeah, it was definitely a thing in retail. Don't know if anyone managed to test it on the demo however.

Shaman. I always liked the focus on the elements, and for some reason, really liked the concept of totems. I also really fell in love with how Shamans heal, and have been healing as a resto shaman ever since TBC (although I really play too much in legion, and not at all in BFA).

To be frank, I preferred Draenei shamans to any of the horde races. In classic, I'll have to roll horde, so probably troll or orc.
