Best class for solo world pvp for casual player (no raiding, no honor grind)

Hey guys, I'm trying to decide my class and what end-game gear I'm going to go after.

About me:

  • I’m a casual player (10-15 hours a week)

  • I play wow strictly for the world pvp

  • No interest in instanced stuff (dungeons, raiding, BGs)

  • No interest in farming honor, so I don’t expect to rank high

  • I'm fond of shadow priest, druid, rogue but open to any class

  • Open to buying gear on AH, crafting, reasonable quests, reasonable reputation farming

  • My question: What are my class options? Please post gear list I should aim for (if you have it).

    Thank you for sharing any knowledge / experience you have!

    A balance druid out in the world with rank10 gear is such an irritation.

    Forget warrior,
    Rogue is good because you can jump in and out of stealth where needed however you would probably end up ganking noobs in lakeshire (horde)

    I like warlock for world pvp because a lot of classes struggle to face them and even if they manage to beat you they will lose anyway because of whatever curse you left on them.

    I voted Rogue and SPriest, Rogues gets to pick his own fights witch is a huge bonus and they are great at pvp. SPriests are good from phase 1 with blue gear.

    If everything fails all horde classes are great in Redridge.

    I've been experimenting with different classes on kronos recently and have found hunter to be fantastic for solo wpvp. Humanoid tracking keeps you from ever getting surprised if you pay attention to radar, and is extremely useful if you're the one on the hunt. You can disengage and escape pretty effectively if you get overwhelmed. You have the cc to deal with multiple opponents if played well. And the most important part for wpvp, is a pet you can send to solo lowbies as you follow along and /cheer the pet. You cannot truly defeat your enemy without also crushing his spirit.

    Everyone says that because rogue is the best ganker, and because stealth allows you to choose your fights. They are arguably one of the best 1v1 classes in the game. That said, I disagree with them being the top wpvp class because they are pretty shit at everything else. If you are in a multiperson fight, or the fight is not over in 20 seconds, i would rather be playing most other classes.

    If 1v1 ganking is your thing, go rogue. If not, I think you're better off as a hunter, lock, druid, etc.

    Hunter just pulled ahead — what’s their secret? Any gear lists?

    Hunter. As broken as they are, they are still the casual go-to and many of the reasons that they are broken won’t even be noticed by a casual player. The biggest reason is bestial wrath. I can let a 5 year old play my hunter from 1-60 and he will win the majority of 1v1 engagements because my pet can just solo classes. Actually though, it solo's players. What about the fights I lose? Typically only if the player uses consumes or cooldowns. But because bestial wrath is such a short cooldown, as soon as I arrive back to my body, my pet is a whistle away (no long summon to get it out) and I pop bestial wrath and watch it solo the guy. Always up, always good and this takes no skills. Pair this with a competent hunter who knows how to juggle his pet and kite and 1vsX situations are very possible even without gear for a casual player.

    Due to changes with hunter they wont be worth it for a strong player who is looking to min/max endgame or play PvP seriously.

    I vote for wl. Fear and dots for the win. Can be dangerous also with shitty gear. Pets bring even more utility on the table. And in later patch progression you get some serious gear over the AH (bloodvine set / bwl like gear) and the missing stamina of the bloodvine set can you compensate through your rare pvp set pieces.

    Shadow priests are pretty badass even with dungeon gear when it comes to 1v1. Rogues, like others have pointed out, get to choose their fights so you kind of have an unfair advantage passing those you won't win against and getting the drop on those you choose to engage.

    I'm personally going to be going warlock and they're probably the best 1vMany. You can find videos of vanilla locks taking on 5 man groups out in the world. There's a high skill cap but if you can get there, you can stomp just about anyone 1v1.

    Doing World PvP without raiding/dungeons/bgs is pretty impossible, maybe you can get away with it for a week at 60. Once people get some epics from raids etc you will auto lose against people way worse than you.

    I don't agree here. Gear is an important factor but for World PvP, skill does alot.
