So I have narrowed my choices down considerably. I was all over the place a week ago, today not so much. The choices:

  • Rogue
  • Warrior
  • Death Knight
  • Paladin

Pretty much in that order as of now. I figured the best way to come up with what class was to list my goals for BFA, So here they are:

  • Mythic Dungeon progression (my version of raiding)
  • Competitive class for Arena teams (3’s)
  • Competitive class for rated and unrated BG’s
  • Get the Gladiator mount (for the upcoming season)
  • Have a melee class that is fun to play but not overly complicated
  • Ability to level in war mode without fear.
  • Look cool doing all of that!

Now that you have all of that information we should move on to the…

   Pros and cons…

Rogue Pros:

  • Stealth really helps in the leveling process in war mode (self-explanatory)
  • Really good historically in Arena
  • Good in BG’s (rated or unrated)
  • Upper end DPS historically
  • Fun to play
  • Looks cool doing everything!

Rogue Cons:

  • Can be squishy without CD’s
  • Could suck for this expansion
  • Not especially good at grinding out world quests quickly

Warrior Pros:

  • Hardy with good DPS
  • Mobile
  • Historically good in Arenas and BG’s
  • Fun-ish to play (can get stale) Not sure if this is a pro or con)
  • Can throw on a sword and shield and tank
  • Very viable while questing in war mode

Warrior Cons:

  • Historically gear dependant
  • Easy to play, hard to master
  • Can get stale (see above)

Death Knight Pros:

  • Sturdy with good DPS
  • Tons of survive-ability (war mode plus)
  • Super animations
  • Good in a lot of comps for Arena
  • Can be dominant in BG’s
  • I have played one for so long its second nature
  • Can tank (my favorite tank)
  • Looks cool even when sitting AFK

Death Knight Cons:

  • Not mobile at all
  • Can be a bit slow to play
  • Isn’t really a top-tier for mythic dungeon DPS
  • Everyone plays one just like a Demon Hunter

Paladin Pros:

  • Unbelievable amount of utility
  • Good in BG’s
  • Can fill all three roles
  • Respectable DPS in Mythic dungeon progression
  • Can heal so will be viable in war mode
  • Sturdy

Paladin Cons:

  • Can be down right boring to play
  • Can be slow play at times
  • Not really a super Arena comp class
  • Doesn’t really look cool doing anything

What do you think?

I’m leaning heavily towards the Rogue but I could be persuaded to any of them. I’m planning on leveling my Death Knight this weekend to 110 to see if I enjoy playing it at max level but I’m not stressing it if I do not. I have played the Rogue (my current main) the Warrior (my current main alt) and the Paladin at 110. All are fun enough but I really need to finish the Death Knight to really figure out what I want to do. What do you think? Do any of these classes stand out for you? Am I missing something that maybe you can share with me? Leave me some comments below, I’ll even consider other classes but Remember my goals are kind of rugged on some classes.
