What Class Did You Almost Pick But Shied Away From?

Priest. I wanted to try healing, but I am a bit intimidated by it. I mean, you are responsible for keeping everyone alive. I don't think I can handle that. (FYI: I'm being completely serious)

The other roles can get people killed by bungling their responsibilities too though.

it doesn't matter, everyone will blame the hunter anyway.

i wanted a mage or hunter, probably hunter more just because i fancied a breezy ride and having someone able to farm shit really well, but i've never been able to play mage not once in my 10 year wow career, never got higher than like level 50. hunter is pretty cool though and i love the bows and pets thing, but just had other classes for my 3 names that i wanted a lot more.
i'm a recovering altoholic so i'm gonna try avoid maxing out my character list as soon as release hits this time or i'll never even feel like i have a proper well-loved main this time around, and try stick with just lock, rogue, and priest

Rogue...given how crowded realms will be I figured stealth would be more useful than normal on PvP realms.

Buuuttt...eh, that wasn't a good enough reason imo.

Also mage because it would be cool to relive the experience of being a mage in vanilla. Just like the good old days.

I'm still undecided... it's begining to turn me crazy at this point.
At first it was my nostlagia to just play my Nelf warrior (first character) again.
Then it was to play a shaman and having a WindFury !
Then it was playing a drood because it's really fun to tank/dps/heal.
Then rogue and mage because I never played them...

This week I started creating a big Googlesheet to just put all the good point and bad point of each class on each faction.
I started asking my girlfriend to help me decide or to find a system to select my class and faction...

So my next step at this point is
- At least choosing a faction.
- Prepring each talent route
- Preping each name and race.

But I will maybe have something to help me decide !
I will be out of internet for the first days of the release, I don't know where to found this information but I hope I can see the population for each faction and class in the server when I came back.

I'm having a hard choice deciding, but I've decided on a rogue (for now). I almost chose Warlock as well, but for different reasons I decided not to. You make a good point about life tap though.

Was dead-set on rolling Druid, my original vanilla class, but in the end i've decided to go for Shaman.

Both classes are required to heal in raids, and i'm fine with that, but druid is the weakest healer imo, plus without a normal res 5/10-mans can be much more challenging and you can get crap from the group more often.

I'm fine with healing spec, as long as down the line there's promise of a good pvp spec with somewhat accessible gear, and druid pvp is pretty good, esecially WPvP, but gearing up to pro levels is a giant hassle. By contrast, shaman can do much more with much weaker gear.

The only thing a Shaman can't do over a druid tbh is tank, and i'm fine with that. Utility i'd say they're pretty even in terms of usefulness, but shamy also seems more fun (totems) than Innervate/Brez.

Druid will probably be my first alt, though.

I'm not being scared away from any one class. One of the best things about Classic is that it gives you unlimited time to do whatever it is that you want to do, instead of giving you more crap to do every 2 years faster than you can do

While you say that I have to imagine the game will get new content/expansions if we think it's gonna be good. It will grow if it's a good game and they won't let it die if that happens.

I almost rolled Shaman if I knew there was going to be future content updates and if they were going to change the classes...because there's no way they would leave Ele shaman to be as garbage as it is. One of the original vanilla devs said on a podcast that there were lots of changes desired for lots of classes/specs, but were held off for the new expansion. The changes would have gone live in like patch 1.10/1.11 otherwise.

I'm planning to go enc shaman, and rush for nightfall as a priority, no matter what.

At first I wanted a war, but it will be too much overpopulation.

For me it's druid and pally. I was pretty set on druid but I don't really enjoy the pvp style. You can absolutely make it work, and it's very possible to pvp, but I found it very limited. I want to be able to juggle and kill multiple enemies, and druid just doesn't really offer that.

Pally I really want to try but I'll never enjoy healing, would only enjoy ret, and ret is, again, just too limited imo.

same but plus hunter. i think i'll be going for warrior.

For me it was 99%druid and 1%paladin. But after some talking with old friend he remainded me that I always loved PvP more, and always picked the classes that are the most difficult.

Another thing also happened. My other friend, who always plays BM hunter, said that this time he will play priest. Which makes me wanna roll tanking class again. But warrior and druid seems so overwhelming with forms and stances, so now I am between paladin, warlock, and mage. The last two for pure pvp and self relience .

Because after all, the best feeling in the game for me is finding somebody in the world around my level and killing it ALONE, really makes me think that I don't suck that much 😆

I was 100% going to play paladin up until about 2 weeks ago. Now I am almost certainly going to be a warrior, but still 1-2% want to be a paladin.

To be fair, elemental gets ripped off pretty bad in Vanilla. Beyond having a tiny mana pool and lightning bolt being a weaker spell than all other classes' main nukes...

An Elemental shaman doesn't benefit from Curse of Elements.

And a talent tree, Elemental, that gives the most natural spell crit in the game lacks a talent that refunds mana on critical strikes. They gave that talent to mages, and it's called Master of Elements.

Oh yeah Elemental could for sure use some improvements, but i'd say the spec is far from garbage. 30/0/21 gives massive spell crit for LB (10%) and while no mana refund talent is available, Elemental has the obligatory clearcasting talent (10% after any cast to reduce mana cost by 100% for next spell). Not to mention the largest cast time reducer available, to my knowledge, of any caster (1sec off LB and CL).
