RAF runs out in a few weeks, so I thought I’d share some of my learnings on the other classes.
I hate warriors. Seriously hate. I don’t know what any of you warriors out there see in this class. It’s like throwing tic tacs at a piece of cardboard. It’s amusing for a little while, but once you’ve run out of “[Name here] SMASH!” jokes (and tic tacs), there’s just nothing left there.
I firmly believe that anyone who enjoys playing a warrior has been shot in the head with a nailgun. Either that or had their cerebellum surgically removed at puberty.
Rogues are AWESOME. Except that I absolutely despise playing one in a group. WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU CAN’T STEALTH PAST HERE?! DAMNIT, LEARN TO PLAY, NOOB! I’d be more than happy if I never, ever encountered another player when I’m roguering it up. Except to kill them.
Stunlocking is fun.
Warlocks are the most boring class ever. Even warriors have that weird little charm at first. Warlocks… nah. It feels like a cross between a hunter and a mage, but with all the awesome of both of those classes stripped away, leaving behind an empty husk of total boredom.
And then crammed chock full of the crappiest crap that ever crapped.
I’ve stated this before. Hunters are an extremely fun class. Second only to mages, at least until the rogue came along. They’re tied for second now. Beastmaster forever, Marksman can go to hell, Survival is neat in theory though boring as hell.
Screw Replenishment and Trueshot Aura, I have a GORILLA. And you know what I called it? GET OUT OF THE WAY! HAHAHA! I find it extremely difficult to think of a death worse than being beaten to death by a gorilla.
I mean, really. Think about. You got killed by a Donkey Kong joke, and your last smell is the scent of fresh bananas mixed in with your own blood. The last thing you hear is the sounds of your bones cracking and “ooh ooh ooh”.
Death Knights are awesome fun to play in PvP. Soloing? Grouping? Ehh… pass. Arathi Basin forever and ever? Where do I sign up?
Paladins are… brace yourself… fun. I have no idea why, I even like healing as a Paladin. Retribution kicks ass. It’s like playing a rogue, if I swapped every trace of subtlety and exchanged it for face smashing.
Ret Paladins: sharing concave skulls with the badguys since 2004.
Priests… are strange. I don’t like solo play as a priest. To me, it feels like a horribly gimped mage. The loss of polymorph and frost nova… gah. Do not want. Fun to play in group situations, though, especially in a DPS role. I can lose myself for hours into spell rotations.
Healing is mind meltingly stupid, though. As a Paladin, you’ve got three buttons. Holy Light, Flash of Light, and Really Flash of Light. It isn’t hard to pick one and use that for healing.
As a priest… SO MANY BUTTONS. Do I Flash Heal? Greater Heal? Prayer of Healing? Healing of Prayer? Heal of Healing? I JUST DON’T KNOW AUGH! /respec Shadow.
Shaman… Gah. I really like the shaman class. I love the talent trees, I love how they look, I love the theory and lore behind them. But I can’t play them. I try so very hard to play one, but… I just can’t do it. It doesn’t take too long before the whole experience just becomes “meh” and I logout to do something else.
If there’s one class I’d really like to play, it’s the shaman.
Druids fall into the same category. Something that is theoretically awesome, looks awesome, should play awesome… but I just can’t play it. I try… and fail.
And so they wallow forever, ignored.
