I played at the launch of legion for a good month or two, but i've recently come back. I picked up unholy and I really like it but I like to have some alts so i'm looking for another option.
Now, to clarify my question. What I mean when I ask for complexity is perhaps not everyones definition. When I play my UDK, I understand the basics. Put on wounds, pop wounds=Damage. Obviously it's a lot deeper than that in terms of our kit but thats the general gist. When I play UDK, I feel as if I play it more i'll get better. There's some RNG, and lots of varying situations as to what button I need to press next to squeeze out the most dps.
That's the kind of thing I crave. And i'm curious what other classes have this type of playstyle in the same or varying degrees. I know for a fact feral is in this camp, and if i'd guess i'd say it's the most complex class in legion at the moment. The problem is I don't really like Feral's flavor. I tried Arms warrior but my problem with it was i'd colossus smash...and then just hit the guy. It never really seemed to change and that got on my nerves a little, despite me loving the flavor.
To summarize, what classes do you guys thing have the deepest pool of choices, the most you can wring out of them by practice and mastery of them. Whether that be through best rotation or maybe even a legendary or two that mix it up for them. Thanks in advance!
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.

even better, after which we go into a bit more detail about the process.

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.
