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.

      - 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.

      Greetings!
       
      <Forsaken Dawn> is a semi-hardcore PvE and PvP Guild which was formed in 2015. Initially set up to be a RBG and Mythic+ as well as a casual Raid guild, our roster contains members from all walks of life.


       
      Quite a few of our members have been hardcore progression raiders at some point in their WoW "career". We have members who have been playing since Vanilla as well as those who started playing WoW relatively recently.

      Some of us have played WoW and other MMOs together for many years and know each other in real life, some had not known each other until Legion came out, but we have all come together and achieved success, whilst having fun on the way.

      In the past few weeks we progressed through Legion's Heroic Raid content quite easily to the point where it is now cleared with alts even and have it on farm status essentially.


       
      One thing we realized while progressing through Heroic EN was that we had an absolute blast doing it and are ready for our next challenge.

      This is where you, hopefully, come into play. In order to progress through Mythic Raid content, we need more skilled members because right now, we are not enough to seriously start progressing on Mythic difficulty.


       
      Our Progress so far:

      Emerald Nightmare 7/7 Normal, 7/7 Heroic, 4/7 Mythic.

      Trial of Valor 3/3 Normal, 2/3 Heroic


       
      Specifically we need:


       
      Healers: Mistweaver Monk, Discipline/Holy Priest and Resto shaman
      Ranged DPS: Shadow Priest, Mage


       
      Exeptional applications will always be considered!


       
      What do we offer you?


       
      Being a semi-hardcore guild, we believe we can offer the best of both worlds: Mythic Progression as well as a relaxed, fun atmosphere. We are a mature guild, all of our members are 18+ and that is the player base we are looking for.

      We are open minded, non-elitist and very inclusive. Content wise you can expect daily Mythic and Mythic+ groups as well as PvP activities (if you are interested in PvP).


       
      We currently raid Mondays and Wednesdays from 21:00-0:00 Server time.


       
      If you are interested in Mythic progression, please contact either or Yatamoon (jackdaniel#2766 / Yatamoon-Outland) , Shrew (Zymos#2997 / Shrew-Outland) , Mesthoop (Krinkel#2631 / Mesthoop-Outland) or Táarabt (Kappa#22412 / Táarabt-Outland) !


       
      Looking forward to meeting you!

      Kind regards,


       
      Forsaken Dawn

      Bulgarian guild - Overpowered - Emeriss - Horde - EU- 2/7M 2/3H
      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.
      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.

      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.
