Hello everyone, as mentioned in the title, am quite torn between healing and dpsing, am going back and forth between rogue/warlock/palladin/priest
i like healing allot, and am very interested in playing holy palladin in both pvp and pve, but i must choose 1 class and stick with it, hit 60, gear it abit then i can do toons.
so i was hoping i'd get some opinion from you guys regarding healing between palladin/priest and their usefulness in classic !

i strongly wish to play priest mostly because of how versatile their roles can be, shadow/holy or even hybrid holy/disc heal, getting Anathema/Benediction has been a dream ever since i have seen it on priests back in the day !
i know priests heal super well, especially their aoe healing is good, but their mana regen is troubling, making it challenging to manage your mana.

but i also wish to play Palladin simply because of how great their single healing power is, their pvp potential is amazing, and kit is quite useful.

and generally doing any content as a healer makes it easier to get into groups/raids, making my gearing process faster !

going dps main would surely make things slightly more difficult, to contest grouped content spots, fighting for dps gear in contrast to a healer, but i'd probably make more money in the end run ? as i can pickpocket/solo rares or even some elites to make money.

thoughts ?

This dream can only be completed as a priest. So be a priest. Class/spec choice is subjective. None of us can give you a good answer without knowing you. Classic isn't going away for awhile, just start with a priest to achieve your dream and then play other classes as time goes on.

As far as making gold is concerned, you can make gold as any class/spec. You just need to be a bit more creative. There are tons of posts on this forum regarding priest gold making and general gold making guides.

https://barrens.chat/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=1237 is a good place to start.

These classes and specs are SO incredibly different, that we cant even help you narrow it down at this point, so I would also suggest checking out https://barrens.chat/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1046 to help you narrow down your choices a bit.

Just throw your gearing and farming concerns out the window β€” the wrong class with gear is still the wrong class. Being a rich DPS won't satisfy your urge to heal.

I wanna play Priest so bad and heal in raids but I don't want to be worthless and defenseless against other players in world pvp.

There will be plenty of warriors on your server who will feel the same. However, together you will be golden. πŸ˜‰

Not only pvp. That fear ward is the reason dwarf priest are considered the best priest race for raiding as well.

In that case, why are even dwarves and human included in the decision making? πŸ˜‰
