Shaman

My main will be an Orc Enhancement Shaman. People tend to try to talk me out of it but I don't care. I really can't wait to start leveling my shammy and doing all of those crazy totem quests.

I won't mind healing through dungeons so I hope to be accepted into a bunch of dungeon runs because they are one of my favorite things about classic.

My 2 alts will be a Priest (undead or troll not sure yet) and a Tauren warrior (more than likely for tanking dungeons)

Anyway glad to see that everyone is so excited about the game.

Benediction/Anathema. I just loved class quests back in Vanilla, would love to be apart of them again. Mained Warrior, still fondly remember getting my Whirlwind Axe.
Same man, can’t wait for class epic quests like this. Will be going for Lok’redar or whatever it’s called for my Hunter :)

If you are sure you will enjoy the playstyle of enha shaman then go for it no matter what people tell you. I personally am thinking about joining a more casual guild or at least not hardcore one. I feel like it takes away the fun regarding meme specs and all sorts of flavourful moments. To hell with minmaxing. I've seen too much of that on private servers and it doesn't bring me true joy.

Horde
Hunter

I think I am going to be a Troll Hunter or NE Hunter depending on which faction I play. I don't have a ton of time to play and Hunter a relatively easy and solo-able class to play. Plus it's just a blast to wander the wilds doing quests all alone.

Full bore!

Horde
Rogue

I've made kind of a little plan on which classes I'll play. Let me know what you guys think. Note: I will play on a PvP server.

1. Main - Shaman Enhancement Orc - Herbalism Alchemy
I have always mained a Rogue on retail, but plan on making a Shaman my main in Classic. This is because I would like to heal in raids later. I've never raided in Vanilla/TBC and I don't want to be tied to DPS. Herb/Alch seems like a good option because I could sell potions anytime for some profit and benefit myself if I want to. I can also yield potions to alts later if necessary. My idea is to level as Enh and spec to Resto around level 58 to start running dungeons and gather pre-raid gear. To provide for a lvl 40 mount, it might be useful to sell potions or herbs - I don't mind grinding.

2. Rogue Combat Orc - Mining Engineering
Ofcourse I can't stay away from Rogue for too long. So I will be making an Orc for PvP purposes (stun reduction). On this toon I plan to do some WPvP and battlegrounds. I know Engineering is expensive, but I can take my time leveling, pickpocketing and will take it easy with this one.

3. Priest Shadow Troll - Tailoring Enchanting
Everyone tells me it's nice to have a supporting char that can provide with bags and could serve as a kind of bank-char. That will be my priest. Eventually I will level it and then the tailoring and enchanting could provide nice perks. Nothing special, and might use it to either focus more on PvP (shadow) or become a healbot.

4. Hunter Beast Master - Skinning Leatherworking
I've recently leveled a hunter on a private server and must say I enjoy it a lot. It levels quick and having a pet around is pretty fun. Also the leatherworking could provide the char itself, or I could sell hides if prefered.

What kind of style will you be levelling your enhance shammy out of interest? I've heard there's two builds that people like to go for: sure and steady 1h dagger + shield (flametongue proc) style or the more unstable/bursty 2H Windfury (flurry proc).

Liking the spread of professions across your alts.

Leaning towards male tauren druid (main goal: tanking).

Do realise that the viability lies in the druids versatility. E.g. be the jack of all tracés.
Dammit!! Doubt starts gnawing at me.... still flustered wether to pick ally/nelf or tauren/horde. 99.9% of my wow time I was Horde.

Looks-wise: nelf cat wins clearly hands down period. But Nelf bear sucks donkey-balls...I mean those ears on a bear? Really?!

Racials: regarding tanking Its 1%dodge vs more more base stamina.

Love to hear hour opinions!!!
I suggest logging in and deciding on the spot what feels right to you. Overthinking never helped anyone :) I have also had a lot of doubts but that is just part of it.

Hunter

My very first character at WoW release was a hunter but I kept rerolling. Eventually I mained rogue in vanilla then mage in TBC and WOTLK. Think I'm gonna go back and finish what I started, hunter all the way.

Tauren
Druid

I realistically only have time for a main, rather than a main and tons of alts, so I'm thinking of choosing a versatile class. I'm stuck between Druid and Paladin for a PvP realm.

Druid main would be great leveling with the different forms to stealth or just move around the world faster. Also having the ability (from what I've been told) to choose between off-tanking or healing for raids is pretty nice, since I love tanking but would rather not play warrior.

Paladin main would be a killer in PvP and PvE but also a lot of people I'm sure are going to be rolling them, which might dilute the class too much to be a pick for a raid. Also the only realistic chance for me to raid/PvP is to become a holy pally and while healing is great and fun, it isn't the same as tanking.

For now I'm slightly leaning towards Druid, although I have no idea which faction I'd choose so I'm still slightly lost.

Hey Sweater, welcome to the forum!

I'd actually say that not a lot of people will be rolling paladins - certainly not as mains anyway. I think you'll see some cool guys doing ret and prot and perhaps a few twinks as well but by and large I don't think people want to playing blessing-bot in late game PvE on their main. Just my 2 cents anyway.

I think the Druid choice is a lot more versatile - personally it's what I would pick :) If you use this tool it might help you choose between Night Elf or Tauren druid.

Priest

Really want to get into healing so I think I'm going to go with Troll Priest :smile:

I honestly wanted to play dwarf paladin, but I'm just kind of put of by some of the things I've read about Paladins in classic.

Right now I am choosing between Priest and Druid. I have played Pala recently and I would probably suggest you to play Druid instead. Pala healing is fun but can get boring over time as your rotation is very simple. Pala healers are, for the most part, the most efficient healers and quite op in PVP. Pala tank is basically non-existent in raids. Ret Pala is viable but you have to put lot of effort into it to make it work. It also depends on what guild you would be in. Some guilds don't mind having players with sub-optimal specs and if it is fun for you, make it happen.
Otherwise I would suggest going Druid, it is blast to play and you will have more raiding opportunities if you want to tank. Feral tank is good imo, it has some advantages as well as some disadvantages compared to Warrior but should be good addition to any raid imo. If you would like to get some opinion on druid vs warrior tanking, you should check out this YT channel for instance: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5xSfo ... 00sGpRN7SQ
Feral dps is also a thing but highly effort-demanding as well as ret paladin. Resto Druids are awsome. Some say they are not that good at healing and there is valid reason for that but if you learn how to play it, you can be very effective as well as efficient. Druids are overall underrated imo.

Anyways, I have played both Druid and Paladin in raids as healers so you can ask me anything you would like about them :)

Priest

I've completely fallen in love with playing Shadow Priest, and that's definitely what I'll be making my main in Classic. I think I'll have him as my solo character, but when I'm playing with friends in a group I'll roll a Mage or something for AoE during questing.

It seems like Night Elf is levels above Tauren in terms of combat advantages but at the same time Night Elves look very weird in their druid forms. I've heard that Alliance would generally be better in pre-made battlegrounds and Horde would be optimal for PuG battlegrounds, do you know if that'll have any relevancy in Classic? Just wondering since that might be a good reason to go Alliance.

In Classic, are Druids generally accepted as off-tanks by most guilds for raids? Because if that's an option then that would be what I would strive for. Do bears work well for tanking in dungeons as well, or are they more of a choice if there's nothing else? I know you said that you healed in raids, but I take it as you also know what tanks there were.

Thanks in advance!

@SweaterMonster Bear druids are kinda generally considered off-tanks but I am not sure if that's the right naming. You can sometimes main tank certain bosses. It depends on whether you need the benefits of warrior or druid on the specific encounter. As bear you can tank dungeons with ease. I have tanked all dungeons on my druid while levelling and it was good.

Priest

I think I'm going to roll a Dwarf Priest to play with friends and a Night Elf Hunter to level when playing alone.

Edit: I'm also thinking of playing a Druid maybe for gathering, could be a nice healer or off-tank. Idk, I wanna play everything!!

I'm far too invested into the priest fantasy to not main priest :) On the days I find myself contemplating the idea of maining mage, I just think about those sweet, sweet, https://www.wowhead.com/item-set=202/ve ... f-prophecy and immediately I remember my calling. :mrgreen:

Holy paladin. It's my original main, and I haven't healed since the end of Wrath. Looking forward to healing again!
