I'm new to WoW. Class help!

5 posts in this topic

I'm new to Wow and, to be a "good" noob I want to know more about the game basics.

 

If anyone can help, please, give me a short version about the classes like: Wich class is good for and how do they perform in-game.

 

Please, use words that a complete noob will understand. I have no experience in Wow.

I cannot give you any advise as to what to choose, in general all classes en specs are quite balanced.

The first thing you will need to decide on is if you want to be a Tank, Healer or DPS.

Since you are new to the game it might be best to start off as a DPS and first learn more about the roles of healers and tanks in the game.

 

That said, he'res an overview of some classes and their specialisations.

  • Druid

1. Balance, DPS, Ranged,

2. Feral, DPS, Melee,

3. Guardian, Tank, Melee.

4. Restoration, Healer, Ranged,

  • Hunter

Hi there! 

 

First off, welcome to WoW and Icy Veins! 

 

I would love to elaborate on certain classes & races for you, but before I do that, would you mind telling me what sort of character you're looking for? 
 

For example, If you wanted to play a ranged damage dealing class with pets, you could be a hunter, or a warlock. Once you narrow it down I'll give you more insight!
