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.
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 :)
