[Poll] The most OP class in world PVP
which class can easily pwn others without much effort?
The obvious answer is rogue. While I don't think that rogues are the most dominant class in 1v1's rogues choose their fights in world PvP. A rogue has the ability to win 100% of their fights because THEY dictate the engagement and if things start to go poorly, rogues have a very high chance of resetting or fleeing the fight. This is pretty powerful and is often while people misrepresent rogues as "overpowered".
Druids are hard to lockdown. They are slippery. A good druid will either win or escape and while their performance is underwhelming, their survivability and resilience is incredible. A druids "dominance" is less about their capacity to win engagements and more about their ability to avoid losing.
If we are talking group PvP. Meaningful raid PvP for world bosses and control - the mage with sapper charges is king. Mages also fair well in 1v1's and 1vX situations.
If you are looking at running around the world as a solo player and asking which class has the highest ability to win a fight against another player, warlock, hunter and spriest are all strong. Spriest is good early on and always commendable. Hunters are really strong early, especially as BM and slowly fade. Warlocks start slow and ramp up quickly becoming the best 1v1 class in late game.'
In short, context matters. There is no "best class" for world PvP.
The 6 madman who chose Warrior tho.
Can't believe no one has chosen Shaman yet. Elemental shamans are disgusting in PvP. (I chose Warlocks since I play Druid), but Ele shamans are dang near the top.
Its hard to answer this question because there are so many variables.
Are we talking about best when going out in the world looking for a fight, with the right consumes, buffs, gear, and spec.
Or are we talking about not prepared but who has the best chance to win when not ready for the fight and need to react?
Plus perspective too, some people will say one class is op because they play the class that counters them.
Shadow Priest, Rogues, Warlocks, Mages and Hunters, I would say any pure DPS class because there leveling spec isnt that different from there pvp spec. They can still have some if not all the utility talents and damage talents while leveling, while farming, while pvping, while pveing...I mean a holy spec priest with +healing will have a tough time compared to shadow priest.
But I think the most OP is the Druid out in the world.
They dont do the most damage but they are jack of all trades...they can become and do whats needed to win the fight.
I know people are against Druids but they are the only class that can fully reset if they were not prepared or getting jumped or about to lose.
Druids can do it all and can change forms and abilities depending on the fight.
They can melee when needed in cat form, they can cast spells, debuffs and heal in no form and absorb damage with bear form.
Basically they can dictate the fight and adapt to the fight like no other class in the game.
Yes you need to be skilled and know who your fighting and how to play a Druid, but once you master it, I think they are OP in the world.
they can completely control the fight and choose when to initiate vs not.
Everyone talk about rogue who can choose their fight, and escape if need be.
Let me introduce you to hybrid druid. (19//11/21)
Stealth, can also pick their fights. Counters rogues vanish with Faerie Fire, and catch up with instant travel form or feral charge,
they can pre abolish poison for countering blind and weapon poisons. Have nice heals both in and out of form not to mention tankiness in form.
Stun and entangling roots. Low mana cost of heals + innervate if needed. The only danger vs rogue is getting stuck in stun out
of bear form.
Rogues aint got nothing on hybrid druids.
Vs other classes they bring above + remove curse, "immunity" to polymorph, ranged spell interrupt, can't be kited as long as druid have mana.
There is no OP class in wpvp.
That would mean the class is so good that skill and knowledge is irrelevant, you win anything anyway.
Rogues being OP is a urban legend from 15 years ago where 'world of roguecraft' and similar videos popped and no one had much inside knowledge about the game. Today 50%of the time you jump someone they might just turn it on you and you are the one dying. Especially if they got a 'war' prefix in their class name
Now if the question is which is the best class in wpvp, my choice is warlock, especially as orc.
Hard to kill if PvP specced and even if you manage to kill them, you might die too. And they dance on your corpse using soulstone...
