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

If you are horde, go rogue. If you are alliance, go warrior. As a mage, there are few things I enjoy more than seeing a non-raid, non-pvp geared warrior just out roaming around.

Any Druid players with relatively easy to obtain gear and wpvp experience?

Druids are not easy to get any gear besides Healing gear.

In my eyes, it is the Mage would fit the best for Solo-World-PvP. But you need some gear...

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.

If you dont' do dungeons or raids or bgs, you basically only have gear from quests. You will be destroyed by people with good dungeon blues and a few epics. Not really sure how this can be arguable.

I obviously make that statement meaning gear is good for you and of course you need to have some gear and not entirely quest/level greens. But for instance a dungeon geared player does not automatically lose to a partial or fully raid gear in World PvP.

In BGs where they are actually focusing PvP he would struggle, but for World PvP you don't really require raid gear (although he will face hard opponents without proper gear).

Edit: I should have quoted second part of the post with the meaning of "auto lose vs players worse then you" and not full quote. He obviously needs to get at least some dungeon gear.

I'm thinking it's rogue for 1v1, but spriest or mage for 1v2.

What did you end up deciding on? I say always give Hunters & Locks a shot. Locks dominate in BGs solo, and you may enjoy them alot given that you already like caster classes. Hunters are amazing fun in a BG. Extremely hig utility, best of many worlds without feeling clunky. You can certainly go toe to toe with several enemies or even be great support from a distance. They are extremely versitile, being able to hit hard with Ranged (Good luck melee!) or get up in the face of a caster while pet puts the damage on further. You can CC & AoE with the best of em. Once I mastered one in PvP it was an addicting adrenaline rush. And I disagree with anyone who says it's "easy". It's not easy to master. Low entry, difficult to master kind of thing. I honestly saw more Hunters get steamrolled more than they succeeded, but when skilled PvPers met a skilled Hunter, they honestly typically didn't know what to do. Good times!

I'd set my money on a HOTW/NS druid. All the perks of stealth, healing. Yes dps is sub-par but you simple can outlast your enemy.

And if you would meet your true nemesis you'd still be as slippery as fuck all and weasel your way into safety.

Man I ran into an enemy druid the other night, before battlegrounds were out. He was throwing moonfire on me, but wasn't a moonkin. I'm guessing he was probably something along the lines of this spec. It was super annoying. I'm a druid too and didn't feel like fighting, and was near the ocean so I jumped in and swam away. So did he though. He kept dropping out to root me and catch up, but I eventually got far enough away to get out of casting range. But he kept swimming after me. 15 minutes later it stopped being a PVP fight and turned into an exploration adventure. We made it half way up the coast of Kalimdor before I rage quit and hit alt+F4.

I thought hitting alt+F4 while auto-swimming would keep me moving until I disconnected. But nope, apparently when I force quit the game client my character stopped moving and stuck around for a while because when I logged in later I was dead. It took him more than 15 minutes to get his honor kill, but that son of a bitch got his honor kill.

It was great. I hated it. I think PVP Druid has the potential to be the most obnoxious class out there.

For a casual player interested in wpvp there is no safer bet than warlock.

Mages and rogues? Strong but heavily reliant on skills with cooldown to stay alive. Knowing the order of skills will make or break the fight.

A warlock will fear, dot and run. If the first fear, for any reason, breaks you then cast Death Coil, the strongest spell in the game, fear again and, for good measure, cast a shadow bolt. Congratulations, your target is now dead.

I went with my heart; undead shadow priest. I am 58 now; absolutely love it.

Today I am again contemplating class choice as I prepare to roll an alliance character. Heavily considering druid right now; the convo above helped 🙂

I want to say a big thanks to everyone who commented here and voted above. This thread has been a great resource not just for me, but for hundreds who stumbled upon this thread since it was posted 4 months ago. Viva la open world pvp!
