These will give you the general talent ideas and rotations to follow. Once you get the basics down you can come back here for more help on specifics. If just getting back in the game however, I would focus on leveling and gearing as frost. Tanking is a big responsibility and you really need a good grasp of not only your class but encounter mechanics. For freshly coming back DPS is more new friendly. Once you get confident as DPS then you can start really learning dungeons and raids and transitioning into tanking.

Everybody needs to know their class and encounter, no matter what role they have. Not just tanks. There is no way around that.

 

In all fairness, tanking the current tier falls right between dull and boring. Most encounters require nothing more than proper taunt switch and standing in the right place. I can only think of 3 exciting exceptions: Velhari (p2 and on M p3 can be very unforgiving for DKs), Archimonde (go figure) and Gorefiend (he is probably way too exciting on M).

 

Frankly, DPS often have more responsibilities mechanics-wise than tanks in HFC.

 

TLDR: If you feel like tanking, go for it.

 

P.S. You do not learn to tank by playing DPS. Just watching tanks is not an efficient way to learn what they do. You need to DO the stuff.

      Can we have a Mythic+ page on each of the class guides, indicating:
      Talents Single target (Boss) rotation (just refer to the normal class rotation guide). AoE (4+) Rotation (mobs/trash). AoE (4+) Stat Priority.

      So, I recently got to thinking about what Blizz could add or change to the classes in WoD that would make them more exciting.  But since we are not getting any more buttons (at least for now), then the skills we currently have are going to be buffed/empowered as we level from 90 to 100.  So, what changes to the classes do y'all think/want to happen?
       
      I'll start with my hunter:
      Buff the main attacks (KC, aimed shot, Black Arrow, BW, Explosive Shot, and Chimera Shot), maybe add a bleed effect/extended DoT (more time in BW), decrease focus cost, increased damage a 6th pet slot Increase base focus to 125, 150 for BM with more focus, a faster focus regen rate Buff Steady/Cobra Shot Buff traps or a new trap - a bear/fox trap that snares and damages Better AoE from Multi-Shot, its good as it is, but could be better Buff Deterence for better ability to soak damage

      We are very pleased to announce that we have recently completed the great labour of significantly improving the quality of our class guides.

      We have always been dedicated to providing guides of the highest accuracy and quality, so we have enlisted the help of respected authorities and top players to review our existing guides and help us improve them.

      Below you will find a complete list of those wonderful individuals who have helped make our class guides
      even better, after which we go into a bit more detail about the process.

      Death Knight Blood: Reniat, the author of the Blood Death Knight guides on the Official Forums and MMO-Champion. Frost and Unholy: Mendenbarr, a prominent theorycrafter who maintains Death Knight guides on Elitist Jerks. Druid
      Balance: Imsupersdw, one of the best Balance Druids in the world, who raids in Method. Feral: Fragnance, one of the best Feral Druids in the world, who raids in Method. You can watch his stream on Twitch. Guardian: Arielle, (@riftmaker), a prominent Guardian Druid theorycrafter and the main author of The Inconspicuous Bear (a very respected Guardian Druid resource). Restoration: Celece, one of the best Balance Druids in the world, who raids in Midwinter. Hunter
      Beast Mastery, Marksmanship, and Survival: Kennyloggins, a leading figure in the Hunter community, who raids in Blood Legion. Mage
      Arcane, Fire, and Frost: Blatty, one of the best Mages in the world, who raids in Method. Monk
      Brewmaster: Sunnier, who maintains the most respected Brewmaster Monk resource site: Sunnier's Art of War. Mistweaver: unpl, a Mistweaver Monk who raids in Paragon. Windwalker: Gondlem, one of the best Windwalker Monks in the world, who raids in Midwinter. Paladin
      Holy: In the process of being reviewed by Atismund, who raids in Envy (25-man), and by Smirk who raids in Paragon (10-man). Protection: Theck (@TheckPhD), the main author of Sacred Duty (a well respected, and arguably the most valuable Protection Paladin theorycrafting resource). Retribution: Anafielle (@Anafielle), a respected Retribution Paladin who contributes to Sacred Duty and Morgeine, one of the best Retribution Paladins in the world, who raids in Envy. Priest
      Discipline and Holy: Jhazrun, one of the best Discipline Priests in the world, who raids in Paragon. Shadow: Artzie (@Artzieh), a Shadow Priest who raids in Method and Twintop, a Shadow Priest theorycrafter from How To Priest. Rogue
      Assassination, Combat, and Subtlety: Dryaan, one of the best Rogues in the world, who raids in Envy and frequently stream on Twitch. Shaman
      Elemental: Leeds, one of the best Elemental Shamans in the world, who raids in Method. Enhancement: Purge, one of the best Enhancement Shamans in the world, who often contributes to the Enhancement Shaman section of Totem Spot. Restoration: Zetian, who raids in MCO, one of the most efficient 10-man guilds in the world, and Sonie, one of the best Restoration Shamans in the world, who raids in Method (25-man). Warlock
      Affliction, Demonology, and Destruction: Gahddo, one of the most prominent Warlock theorycrafters, who maintains the Warlock profiles and rotations in Simulation Craft, and Evrelia, who raids in ScrubBusters, and frequently streams on Twitch. Warrior
      Arms: In the process of being reviewed by Gondlemstyle of Midwinter. Fury: Gondlemstyle, one of the best DPS Warriors in the world, who raids in Midwinter. Protection: Sco, Guild Master of Method, and one of the best Protection Warriors in the world. Initially, when we first started writing these guides, they were all entirely created by Damien and myself, based on our experiences with playing the classes, and on extensive testing and research. However, as our workload on the site grew (and especially as we finally completed our offering of 34 class guides), the amount of time and attention that we were able to dedicate to each guide dropped.

      Given the enormous popularity of our guides, and large number of people around the world who use them extensively, we decided that we had to find a way to do better. So, we contacted experienced players of each class and spec, and asked them if they would be willing to review our guides, and offer any corrections or pointers required. The responses we received have been overwhelmingly positive, and after more than a month of intensive work on the subject, all of our 34 class guides are now reviewed and approved by either a prominent theorycrafter or a top player of the spec. The remaining 3 guides will hopefully receive the same treatment soon.

      We intend to continue working with these people in the future, to make sure that the guides are always up to date (especially when new patches are released).

      For the sake of consistency, we prefer to only have one reviewer for each spec (with the exception of healing guides where we prefer two so that we can look at both 10 and 25-man perspectives). If you want to contribute to a guide for which we already have a reviewer, then you are more than welcome to post in the guide's comments thread, or to e-mail us.

      We thank you all for your support.


      For the past month we have worked very hard on our class guides and with the help of top raiders and known authorities, we now have the best offering you can find for World of Warcraft classes.

      Coming back from a very long break from this game. (end of BC)
      I was just curious which classes are more viable for raids then others. I have not played in a few years so Im not sure how much works anymore. Just want to make sure the toon I choose to play will be wanted and not underpowered if that makes any sense. Dps classes that are viable pve and pvp are what I usually lean towards. Thanks for the advice.

      We finally updated our class guides to level 90.
      While the rotation and talents parts were already valid for level 90, we still had to update stat priorities, hit/expertise/haste cap values, gems, enchants, consumables, profession perks, and best in slot lists.
      This is a very large update and, although we checked to the best of our abilities, it is highly possible that some errors went undetected. If you notice anything wrong, we would be grateful if you could let us know ;)
      Now, we will work with our friends from Ask Mr. Robot to harmonize the stat priorities between our two websites.
