    eh. seeming as we are planning on 3 manning the entire way to 60 via dungeons, it depends on the others liking shamans vs pallys. One of them has played nothing but pally since TBC so its a tough sell.

    i played a pally in vanilla as my first character, i wish i didn't because after trying and trying to do anything i was regulated to being absolutely fucking useless except for a mobile 5 minute buff with a few heals in between.

    you have no way to do any damage on command, no way to stop an enemy running from you...


    if you want to heal, roll a priest, if you want to heal + dps with melee weapon, you go shaman with windfury + arcanite reaper :p and frost shock, you also get wolf-form for a 30% run speed bonus which is usable in BG's and instances, and amazing before you get your first mount.

    If you want to DPS with plate armour, you go warrior. Arms spec.

    mmm, windfury proc as an arms warrior is amazing ( shaman in your party )

    I'm sort of looking forward to vanilla but I doubt i'll stick around long. I was originally planning on going with my very first toon I started with for the nostalgia factor but then I realized there's a slight problem...

    she was a Draenei Shaman :lol: yeah not gonna happen xD as I don't want to play horde I guess a human paladin will have to do instead

    Noo, Nightwish, come play horde :D

    I absolutely loved Loch Modan, and the wetlands when levelling and Iron forge is i believe the best city in terms of asthetics and layout. I hate stormwind though sooo much, and the horde cities aren't that greatly placed, however, i found less kiddies on horde and overall the horde more competant when in dungeons and raids.


    Also, when i make my priest, Undead for the extra DOT devouring plague spell that gives me back 100% of the damage as life, as well as will of the forsaken and cannabalize, it's awesome.

    I've taken down 3 players at the same time in pvp on that character. Used potions, whipper roots, I even feared and ate the body of the first one i killed for HP to finish off the last one :p

    Also the Hunters are better on horde side :) the racials :p 25% stun resist orcs, +5% damage to beasts on trolls +5 skill to bows/crossbows with trolls ( ups the % chance to hit ). I know on alliance, dwarves get +5 to guns, but the best weapons for hunters in the game are all bows/crossbows, and when farming +5% to beasts is nice on t he devilsaurs :p


    P.S, what name are you thinking of to use ?

    I’m a little paladin, short and stout. Here is my hammer, here is my mount. When I see the horde I scream and shout. Pop my bubble and hearth right out.

    Divine Fervor + Holy Shock + 8% Speed. HoJ and goodnight.
    It just sounds like you don't understand the inner workings of pallies. Doesn't matter though, we aren't going to be playing for solo.

    You can pick the people who are going horde. The trolling already started.

    Alliance playing solo pvp would be a 1st. Zerg is the word.

    Haven't looked too much into classic, will it be an additional sub/fee on top of the live subscription?

    There's accusations that streamers and hardcore/early beta players were given queue priority.
