For me it's the shaman. One of the numerous reasons for why I want to be a hunter is simply due to the massive survivability the paladin has. Besides, I've always been a warrior at heart, so when I finally decided on mage, I must say the decision basically made itself.
*screams into a pillow*
Have spent a long time trying to narrow it down.. Still undecisive
At the moment my list goes something like this 1) Hunter, 2) Mage, 3) Paladin or Priest.. And still havent fully decided on Horde or Alliance
Horde due to nature of leveling since I am familiar with it and would know my way to later levels
Alliance due to dwarfs and the fact that I did not play them at all back in vanilla
The only thing I am certain of is I will be making a few 19s..
rly idk what i will play, idk if horde or alliance. :D i'm thinking about human/undead Mage, Undead Warlock or NE Druid, but i have few months to decide. I was determined play Mage, but now i rly don't know. I don't like to play many characters i prefer have one main so its hard to make right decision. :D
unexpected favorite is priest :D
my 1st ever character on beta was a Tauren Hunter. Loved it. Only played to level 10, as coming from EQ I knew immediately what this game was going to be and wanted to save the experience for launch to experience it all fresh. Played around with all the classes to level 10 to get a feel for which one it was I would take. Paladin was the last class as I just hated it in EQ and thought it would be similar. Man I was wrong and fell for it immediately.
That was beta.
Launch happened and that change to the class gutted that love and around level 40 on Live I finally rerolled back to a Hunter never to go back to that Paladin. I've always regretted not sticking with the class.
This is my chance to finally rectify that issue and I plan on taking that Paladin to end-game no matter how long of a time it takes to level.
I like healing, easy(atleast easier) to get group for dungeons and I just like the playstyle :)
Healing Priest, easy spot for raid.
My first character I stuck with after trying a few other classes was a NE Druid, I loved that guy, you bet I'll be doing it again for classic! I can't decide if I want to play Hunter, Mage, or Shaman for a Horde alt.
Undead (maybe orc for racials) Warlock. It was my first character ever, it will be fantastic for the warlock's utility to matter beyond being a portal for raids.
I was pretty bad at MMO's when I started. I was very used to the diablo dynamic of grouping/guilds/clans/loot etc so it was hard to adjust so I never got into many good guilds so I'm insanely excited to be able to relive the beginning of my favorite game of all time WHILE having the benefit of 15 years of mmo gaming under my belt. It's gonna be fucking wild.
Nelf Rogue, for sure. Going to be re-creating my main from Vanilla->BFA, same appearance and everything. If I have a sudden change of mind before launch though, I might roll a Gnome Rogue instead purely for the racial...
Stealth is just too much fun in PvP, and leaping out of the shadows with an Ambush dealing crazy burst damage is incredibly satisfying. Then you've got sap (hilarious), decent farming in pick pocketing, interesting class quests, groovy armour, lock picking to make a few G on the side, and pretty viable raid DPS specs.
Warlock, because until I started practicing for Classic I'd never played one, and it's a complex class, which is a challenge I'm eager for.
Warlock, because of its insane versatility. You can solo incredibly well, you have great utility in groups, you have access to bursty and tanky pvp specs that feel distinct from your pve specs, and class fantasy is 10/10.
I started out with druid and almost 100% sure I'll be playing Tauren Shaman by release.
Warrior. I am not sure why I initially picked one, but I absolutely loved it. Rogue and Mage are tempting due to mechanics, Druid and Paladin are for their class fantasy. (Druid shapeshifting also is a very cool mechanic, so that class is really high on my list). Shaman would be really cool too if I wasnt dead set on Alliance (Dwarf best race). I also like the Dwarfen Hunter image.
Over the course of Vanilla I expect to play pretty much every class. The only classes that dont really interest me are Priest and Warlock.
Gnome mage! I played one til 40-ish in vanilla, this time I'm gonna finish the job.
Personal stuff aside, great class with great utility, portals, refreshments. Love the Mechanostrider and racials.
Ret Pala of course.
I know a lot of Players (mainly P Server players) think that it is a joke class and people just trolling with it but i never leveld that easy in Vanilla and was always helpfull in dungeons while leveling up. I would even say that i saved many wipes because i could heal, lay on hands and so on.
I really love the Ret Pala and in PvP he is just fun.
I was leaning on Shaman for a while - but I decided to do some testing on repack. And while I love shaman early level, enhancement later on gets a bit stale for me.
Since I find the actual gameplay of combo points and energy very fun and rewarding I have decided on Rogue - at least until I change my mind again. There's something about energy management and building combo points while keeping track of the mob's health in order to decide on what finisher to use that I find enjoyable. This paired with all the options available for initiation in stealth makes Rogue combat about constantly making decisions, which keeps every fight interesting for me.
All that is left now is to decide on a race... damnit
I like tea.
Be honest. Based on your signature, its really for that [www.wowhead.com/item=7676/thistle-tea] isnt it?
Here is the thing, i think with the Servers back like they were in Vanilla people will remember you when you a Ret pala who is supportive, always prepared, helps others, give tips, lead AV or making calls in WS&Arathi.Stoepsel wrote: ↑1 year agoOh man I really wish I had the balls to also roll a ret pala. It may sound crazy to some but it's the spec that is by far the most fun for me, really love the class fantasy and the general pacing of their combat. Would even consider playing on a RP realm if I played one. Sadly the bad stigma of their poor dps makes me worry that I won't be able to participate in dungeons and raids if I don't want to heal or tank (and I really don't want to do that). The struggle is real
Currently leaning towards warlock or hunter but my heart will always belong to paladins
Doing those things will people know your name and being a Ret pala would make it even more recognizable then being high in dps Meter as a Warlock or hunter.
I mean your you can do all this with every class but i think people will know if you love you class and have fun playing it. I also think that you will play way more when you play what you want and not what is best
Warlock to start, Rogue to finish/in addition.
I'm not 100% yet but I plan on playing warlock until my warlock is fine to log out pre-raid runs (ss farmed and partially wbuffed) and in that spare time level a rogue.
T3 rogue has always been my favourite set in the game so obtaining that is a classic goal of mine, so that gives me from launch to naxx release to get that rogue to 60 + pre-naxx geared etc.
So all in all that's a lot of shadowbolts before a T3 rogue
I'm not going to be speed running anything and i'm definitely going to be a stop and smell the roses type.
Human Combat Rogue - Skinning and Herbing while leveling, Herbing and Alchemy at max level
Human Holy Paladin - miner/bs
Night Elf Hunter - Skinner/LW
Gnome Warlock - Enchanting and Tailoring
My main is going to be Prot/Fury Warrior with Feral Druid as an ALT. I'm really looking forward to tank in Classic. I don't know if it will be posssible to tank as Bear but would love to try.
Holy Priest main w/ a Shaman alt. Mainly because the group of people I run with need a Priest. Even if they stop playing, I feel Priest heals will always be needed.
