I would like to start a new character with a spec that no one normally plays but it also works in raids.

Example would be a shadow priest, any other thoughts?

@Iolden is rolling an Arcane Mage which tbh I think is pretty dope!

Shadow priest is actually very welcome to the raid. Only one shadow priest though. They bring very useful dmg buff for the locks. I haven't played that spec myself but you could search for it and find out if it would be enjoyable playstyle for you. I just know that they start getting some nice items once BWL and ZG come out.

I have seen some very good feral druid dps as well, but they are more effort demanding then other dps to make it rly shine.
I think that you should play any spec you will enjoy, just keep in mind that there will be some downsides to playing suboptimal specs.
I would love to see players go different specs for diverse experience, would be much more fun imo.

I havent seen any pure arcane mage apart from pvp either. I quess they have nice burst but very high mana costs so it isn't worth it using just arcane spells.
From what I have seen, many mages do spec deep into arcane for Arcane Power and then the rest into frost, apparently giving them higher overall dps in raids.

People always say shadowpriests can't raid but in my experience that isn't true. It's kind of like how you'll adapt to it. In most cases regular guilds will probably let you raid as shadow but as an off-healer or something. DPSing as a shadowpriest is still a possibility but usually just 1 manages to take that spot. So if you're cool with healing but staying shadow I think you'll be good.

I have seen both pure shadow dps and hybrid shadow/heal priests

Enhancement shaman is a good one. You're useful for nightfall wielding and totem twisting. Not many people play it and not many people take the spec to raids. Sad.

Hey! That's me :D
I just fell in love with the concept of being an arcanist just randomly blowing up things. I am aware of the quirkiness of the spec and somewhat afraid of not being let into dungeon runs in high levels, let alone raids.

Then again I won't have that much time to play so just reaching 60 will be woth the run, but I do intend to do the endgame as an arcanist.

I mean, if they dont like my magic tricks, at least they will like my flasks, right?

Don't wait for the world to accept you to try and be happy.

I really don’t think you’re going to have trouble getting into anything man - it’s a very interesting spec and perhaps people haven’t really investigated its true potential. It will certainly make you stand out from the crowd!
