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.

      ABOUT US
      We Tried is a mythic progression raiding guild formed by an ambitious raid leader seeking like minded, progression oriented players who would work together towards clearing the latest content while it is still considered relevant. After suffering some roster issues, We Tried merged with Procrastination in late December 2016 and together we have fully cleared Emerald Nightmare Mythic within just two weeks.
      OUR PAST ACCOMPLISHMENTS & FUTURE GOALS
      Although we have since slowed down, we are proud ourselves of holding the realm 27th Nythendra Mythic and 24th Elerathe Renferal Mythic kills.
      Today we are actively working towards forming a raid team that would be able to attain our previous glory and compete on a realm wide level.
      CURRENTLY RECRUITING
      Frost DK
      BM/MM Hunter
      Retri Paladin
      Shadow Priest
      Elemental & Resto Shaman
      Arms/Fury Warrior
      *Applications from exceptional players will always be considered regardless of recruitment status*
      RAID TIMES
      Wednesday 20.30 - 23.00
      Thursday 20.00 - 23.00
      Sunday 20.00 - 23.00
      IDEAL RECRUIT
      Our ideal recruits are players who are passionate about the game and about progress. Each raider is expected to do whatever they can to improve their skills outside of the raiding environment and pull their own weight within the raid.
      We are looking for mythic ready players who, without fail, know the tactics for every boss prior to entering the instance; have solid knowledge of their class and continuously strive to improve themselves; have a near 100% attendance rating; are prepared to wipe often on progression nights and can not only take the constructive criticism that comes their way but are also able to give constructive criticism back, as well as share new ideas and approaches relevant to the content we are clearing at the time.
      CONTACT & INFO
      If you have any questions or concerns you're welcome to contact me in game (Ririxia#2172) or on Discord (Ririxia#1469). You can find more info about our guild, guidelines, raiding policies, trials and the loot system, as well as apply on our website - http://we-tried.enjin.com

      <Minions Inc> is a heroic raid focused guild looking to round out our roster with some ranged DPS. Many of us are former mythic raiders that grew tired of the drama that always seemed to follow mythic raiding and now just enjoy clearing heroic at a reasonable pace and having fun. We're an adult guild that likes to talk about serious adult things during raids, like how big of a sex toy Cornellia can take or the size of Crunxi's hemorrhoids, very mature things. If you're easily offended you won't enjoy it here. That being said we do expect our raiders to focus on progression, continually strive to improve, come to raids prepared with flask/pots/food etc. and maintain a 75% attendance rate.
      Raid Progress: 7/7H 3/3H 6/10H
      Raid Times: Tuesday 7-10PM PST (Progression) Thursday 7-10PM 
      PST (Progression) Friday 7-10PM PST (Alt Raid, not required)
      We also run mythic+ dungeons on the weekends so if you have a mythic keystone, don't be afraid to ask if anyone wants to run with you!
      Role Needs: Any Ranged DPS, Retribution Paladin, Windwalker Monk, Enhancement Shaman and Restoration Druid.
      Loot Distribtion: EP/GP
      Voice Program: Discord

      <Noxious> are recruiting for our core progression team - We are looking for Ranged DPS and healers to join us in progressing through The Nighthold.

      We Raid 3 Times a week Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday - from 19:30 GMT (20:30 server time) until 22:30 GMT (23:30 server time).
      We're a guild that was formed between four real life friends and between us have many years of guild and raid leading, we have managed to get a lot of good members in this time, but we need a few more as we are looking to move forwards onto Mythic progression.

      Warlock (Highly needed)
      Shadow Priest (Highly needed)
      Restoration Druid
      Fire Mage

      We are looking mainly for Warlocks and Shadow Priests but we will consider any ranged class!
      Although that we are a raiding guild and expect you to attend all three raid nights, we do understand that problems occur in real life and that WoW is just a game. Real Life should always come before the game.
