Ele/resto hybrid looks fun.
30/0/21 ele/resto looks like a blast (pun intended). I am seriously considering shaman as my first alt. I would also consider going full resto shaman closer to 60 and just heal dungeons full time.

Dwarf Hunter most likely for the main character to explore the world and do all the quests and Tauren Druid or Shaman for the Horde side.

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.
Having too many buttons to press shouldn't be an issue for those people.

Shaman do seem to be the least popular class to main in the game according to a lot of surveys. No idea why tbh, they're so adaptable and you have so many choices of what you want to do with one. Windfury proc builds, resto healing, big 2H PvP, Ragnaros wielder... all the good stuff.

I think it's because they are a viable option for a lot of different things, but not the most optimal.
Same goes for Druids, they are fun, mobile and can be different kind of specs. But there is always another class that's a better tank, healer or DPS.
Nowadays people prefer optimal setups over viable setups, min-maxing everything they can. I guess people might be afraid that the better option will always be considered to be picked over them.

I have recently tried leveling every class to 20-30 on private servers to make my mind. Well, except paladin since I intend to play Horde. I really liked warlock, priest and shaman. Mage was very easy and smooth but rotation is boring in my opinion (it was my main in Vanilla).

I really liked healing in TBC and that's why I'm thinking about healer class. Shamans are great party healers and in great demand when it comes to raiding. Leveling priest feels amazing though. On the other hand warlock would let me concentrate on mobs, bosses and action because I wouldn't be looking solely at 40 health bars that take half of screen real estate.

Difficult choice.

Currently playing Kegtek, troll hunter on Ten Storms EU
I used to play Warn, human mage on The Maelstrom EU <Ashbringer | Rachell's Angels | Entrophy | Relentless>

I will be going Nightelf Hunter. I was a dwarf back in the day and got server first Ashjre'thul, Crossbow of Smiting! But I feel like rolling NE. I prefer hunter for the kiting, leveling, a companion at your side, the range weapons (guns) and the amazing quest to get rok. I personally can’t wait anymore!!

What class will you be playing once Classic releases and why? I'm curious to know the arguments for each choice as I am in doubt myself.
I've got a couple of classes I want to play, but I'm making a serious effort to reign in my alt-mania. I'll be maining UD Mage for certain. It was the first character I made. Created that bad boy on the original vanilla release day, and I've mained him ever since. He's been through half a dozen race and faction changes, but it's still that same mage. I'll be recreating him in large part due to nostalgia, but also the mage class in Classic is just so cool to me. Ports, summoning food and water, pom/pyro, having access to all three schools of magic regardless of spec, hell even managing the different reagents was fun.

I'll probably limit myself to one other alt (any more and I risk just not committing to anything and rolling a million alts). I'm thinking nelf rogue, but I'm trying not to focus too much on that. I want to put all my effort into my mage to start.

Probably priest. Never healed in vanilla so thought I'd try.

Mage.

I like the elements - fire and frost. Free food and teleports will come in handy especially that I am a relatively new player.

I am aiming for PvP and this class has been viable in all expansions. (if we get the next ones as well)

This will probably be my first and last main.

An update - I will be playing Shaman. I just changed my mind by reading and watching about them. I will definitely make an Mage alt, but Shaman just spoke to me. It feels weird to switch while I was so sure about my decision. I still have time to decide to what play in the end, but I am certain of one thing - it will be Shaman or Mage for sure.

I want to do everything that's not optimal. Arcane mage, survival hunter, balance druid, tank shaman, you get the point.

Starting with the mage!

Hunter because it's so incredibly easy to level, I'm a dad with a 54 hour a week minimum job, and I only have a few hours a week to play.

I'm going Troll Shaman for the PvE heals, same as back in Vanilla.

I really enjoyed it back then, hopefully I'll enjoy it as much this time around.

Also there's Ghost Wolf for some speed increase while leveling which is a big plus.

Troll Priest for me. I've mostly been an ally player in retail so playing horde really helps with the whole 'I have no idea wtf I'm doing' sorta vibe I want when I first start classic.

Going to give Warlock a try, I like their class fantasy and the utility they bring to groups. I played a Shaman in Vanilla but want to try something a bit different.

I'll be either Druid, Warrior or Mage. Still haven't quite decided. Raid main tanking as warrior could be fun but I won't have the time for that most likely. Might end up rolling druid cause of the flexibility, but we'll see.... Decisions decisions...

As I've played WoW for all expansions (some less some more) I've been always struggling with indecision what class to play. Gameplay was 2nd most important factor in the decision making process because I enjoy every class and role, well healing the least, so I narrowed this one to dps/tanking. The most important factor is lore for me. I have to feel deep connection with my main (want to be him if lived in that world). Faction is always easy for me: Horde. Been playing on ally side for some time, everyday I missed Horde. My main is going to be Undead Male ̶M̶a̶g̶e̶ Warlock. I love the class as a whole. And story of people of Lordaeron is so tragic, most appealing to me so I will be Forsaken. Even came up with little background story for this guy (origins, motives etc.) so he can think about past during long walks on harsh Barrens routes :D. But at some point I will want to play alt... So 2nd class I love (not as much as ̶m̶a̶g̶e̶s̶ warlocks but still) is warrior, and race is orc. So Orc Male Warrior will be alt. No background story for this guy yet but I guess I will come up with something, specially after reading Rise of the Horde by Christie Golden.

Edit:
I've been struggling between Warlock/Mage and... fel took me.
