Played a human paladin back in 2005, loved it. Still debating whether I want to relive that or start a new adventure.

On the fence of either rolling Paladin, Rogue, Warlock, or Warrior.

I always loved casters and played priest in Vanilla.
I narrowed it down to Priest or Warlock, so shadow!
Really like the DOT play style so affliction warlock and shadow priest are my cup of tea.

Friends are going horde so either Undead Priest or Undead/Orc Warlock
Going to play on a private server to get a taste/preview of which one I want to main.

I am leaning towards warlock but having that ability to switch to healing is always a good change of pace, so idk want to decide soon though lol

Warlock.

When I first saw the Infernal in the WoW intro cinematic before vanilla, I knew that's what I wanted to be. I wanted to be that damaging caster that controls powerful demons.

What keeps me wanting to play it again after all these years is the tool kit. Eye of kilrogg, summoning, fear, etc.

Just so stoked.

Leaning towards lock I remember playing in vanilla on my lock and being able to dot someone up and walk away and they would be dead before they could reach me plus fear is a big help but cant decide on a race either human or gnome

Warlock, Druid, or Priest.

I like classes with a lot of depth, and I enjoy classes that have utility and/or support roles but aren't complete victims in the open world, but having a bit of a less populated class to play feels nice to, so Warrior, Paladin, Rogue and Mage were already out of the question.

Dispelling people out of CC feels so rewarding and if I play with my friends I'd probably not roll druid for that exact reason. Not being able to dispel magic and watching your friends sit in a full sheep or fear really sucks, so it will be either the Warlock (Felhunter Dispel / Purge) and / or the Priest.

I'd love to play Druid because it's almost my legacy and I've always played it EXCEPT in vanilla, but I want to play group PvP and I dont want to run flags all day and otherwise be kinda on the sidelines, so I will most likely wait until I level a druid.

Warlock is fun because I'd argue it has the most depth of all the classes and is also a BEAST in PvE and PvP, and (being Alliance) is underpopulated and there's not even a single weakness to being a warlock in my eyes.
Priest is similar in that it has a lot of impact in both PvE and PvP and you're not on the sidelines, can stand your own and has some nice shenanigans with Mana Burn and Mind Control.

My friend is deadset on playing a warrior, though and we played PvP together for years, so I think I will probably go with the priest so we can go with the tank+heal combo in PvE and the wreckingball warrior in PvP with a private healer and dispelbot behind him.


Atleast those are the three classes where I feel there's not a single point in the game where you feel absolutely miserable because of your class choice. I felt that way with Rogue, Warrior and Paladin because they get kited so hard and the overall playstyle was a bit onedimensional. Paladin not so much, but I didnt want to look like a clown and leveling one was very boring.

I plan to 5box so I'm going Warrior, Mage, Hunter, Druid and Shaman - I love pet class and the Maraudon farm, so can't be without a hunter, otherwise warlock would make more sense for summoning.

Warrior because I love the sound of a solid block, but I'll be leveling fury. Mage for utility and because I've never tried AoE farming - seems like a nice challenge. Druid is one of my all-time favourite classes and she'll be tanking up to max level. Shaman for play style and basically one extra melee dps while leveling, especially since IWT seems to be available.

I have odd hours and lots of responsibilities, this way I can enjoy instances whenever it suits me - and take a break in the run anytime the 2½ yo needs me :)

I'll either be playing Paladin or Warlock. Paladin because that's what my main was/is in classic/retail, and Warlock as a "try something new" class (never played casters in Classic).

I'm almost certain that I'm going to play a mage for a multitude of reasons. Mostly because I like the class fantasy but having teleports and free drinks/food to go about is most definitely good to have as well. For the possible alts I'm not so certain though.

Probably a Night Elf Druid for healing to level with my SO. When they aren't online I'll probably be playing a Human Pally. Really want to give healing a try for Classic. Too used to playing DPS.

Protection warrior most likely, for ease of forming groups for 5 mans. Also because I like the fantasy of a warrior mastering blacksmithing, and having to run brd to craft dark iron stuff for example really tickles my fancy.
I’ve missed professions being more important and much more involved like when I leveled tailoring in bc.

That guide is awesome and exactly the reason how I stumbled upon this forum while researching blacksmithing as a matter of fact!

I’m going with the Druid not sure what race yet, but the reasons I am going with Druid I like the shapeshifting and I am always going back and forth from do’s, healing, and tanking on different classes and so I can kind of do all them on a Druid. So then I am not switching characters all the time.

Be prepared to grind a lot of gold if you want to do that on one character regularly though, no dual spec or anything of that matter in Classic.

I’m not against the grind, it is my plan right now but it might change three months from now when classic does release.

I'm with you on that: the main reason why I use warrior is that I love blacksmithing! It's, at the end, probably the thing on which I spend most of my playtime: finding recipes, hunting for exotic reagents. It's awesome! And I hate the fact that, expansion after expansion, they kept dumbing down professions.
I remember the first time I was able to craft a https://classic.wowhead.com/item=2870/s ... reastplate: the sole fact, as a horde, that I had to run to Wetlands to farm efficently for the https://classic.wowhead.com/item=5500/iridescent-pearl was AMAZING! It gave real valor the piece you were crafting.

I've been thinking of making a Shaman. Class surveys and records from private servers seem to indicate they'll be in short supply. Should be easy to make friends with all the warriors out there.
I've heard lots of bad things from former shaman players: too many buttons, slow leveling, can only support in raids. I think I'll manage though.
I played druid in vanilla and while I was a great PVP healer it sucked to sacrifice all of my damage for it. Ele/resto hybrid looks fun.
