I have always been used to playing mele classes and taking heavy damage. I have a mage but solo can be a bit dicey sometimes because squishies just can't take a hit.

Honestly I love the abilites of my warlock and having a pet to tank and deal with stuff is very nice. A hunter would work well too with a good tanking pet for solo. They will also be some of the faster ones to level as you will be able to take on things that are much harder hitting with less downtime than a mage will likely be.

All the DPS classes are viable once you get to max level its just a question of which one you want to level up.

I would agree with NightShade in that hunter/warlock is pretty easy to switch too. I would say if anything, hunter maybe a little easier given it works more like melee classes then traditional casters since hunters don't have as many spells that require cast times. Not to mention, mail helps with dealing with damage (but still quite squishy).

I actually did the opposite and went from hunter to melee and found it pretty easy to switch.

      Bulgarian guild - Overpowered - Emeriss - Horde - EU- 1/7M 3/3N
      Ние сме "Oldschool" българска гилдия, чието съществуване започна в далечната 2005 година на сървъра "Warsong".
      С новия експанжън подновихме рейдването и започнахме митик прогрес. След 4 часа опити успяхме да свалим "Nythendra" и да започнем втора фаза на "Elerethe Renferal",
       но се нуждаем от попълнения в митик състава, за да можем да рейдваме по-качествено и редовно. Целта ни е да изчистим митик контента преди нърфовете.
      Рейд графика ни е:
      - Дни: Сряда , Четвъртък, Понеделник и/или Вторник.
      - Час: 20:30-23:30 Българско време.
      За комуникация използваме "Teamspeak3", който е задължителен за митик рейдовете.
      Средната  възраст в гилдията е около 30 години, имаме желание да играем със сериозни, зрели хора, сигурни във възможностите и намеренията си.
      Към момента се нуждаем главно от "ranged dps", но всяка апликация ще бъде подробно разгледана и не е изключено да бъдат приети
      добри играчи от други класове.

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids.

      We currently raid Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:00-22:00 server time. We run social/alt raids during off days in which all ranks of the guild are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is also welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with a 3 days a week schedule that you are expected to attend. However we understand things can come up but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons and world quests to gear in preparation for raids. This includes improving your artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared (i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.
      ____________________________________________________
      To join into our current main raids
      - 865 ilvl
      - 25 traits at the very least.
      - Experience on 4 or more bosses in EN Mythic.
      You will receive a response within 3 days but probably within 1. The trial process will last 2 weeks, sometimes longer. During the trial period you will not have loot priority over raiders however you may of course still roll.
      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletags: Vims#21684  or go to our website http://asylum-tn.enjin.com/ .

      Paradigm - Bladefist (US) is a relaxed guild looking for more Ranged DPS, and 1-2 more tank healers.  We are progressing through Heroic right now, and looking to make 20 players to get into Mythic.  We have a Strong Melee dps core, but are lacking in Ranged dps.  We raid on Thursdays 7:15-10:15 pm Central time, and Sundays 6:00-9:00 p.m. central time, with the possibility of Monday Raid if needed.  If interested whisper Matster-bladefist, or others in the guild that are logged on.
      Our logs are below if anyone is interested in viewing before.
