Hey guys, im about to play Wow again after a half year break and i want to start as Warrior or as Death Knight and i cant decide between both.

I pretty much know how they work but my question is : which works better/more simple in Mythic+ and eventually heroic raiding (im not interested in mythic ToS).

Hi Cope,

I've played several different tanks in previous xpacs.  This is really more of a question of what your raid consists of.  If your guild healers aren't great, the DK is a powerful choice.  If they are talented, the warrior is usually the best dps output which is actually viable in timed encounters.

I've not raided at all this xpac but most top end guilds run warriors because they have the teams to support such.  Recognizing your team's faults and strengths helps in tank choice.  If you have no team and no guild, I find warriors to be the most agile and capable as lone wolf tanks in most any situation.  They do require a unique understanding of encounters and their upkeep/uptime for mitigation can get tiresome in your rotations.

After reading your post, I realized its entirely possible you may be thinking of playing these as dps classes.  In that case, I have no input as I don't play either class in that way.

Honestly really just depends on whether you enjoy mobility.

DK's main downside is the lack of mobility from the class.  You only have wraith form and walking.  Warrior has charge/leap/intervene (if prot).

DK has more self-sustainability as tank, and can solo lots of older content.

As far as DPS goes, both are highly wanted in M+ due to their AoE stuns and high burst AoE damage (Fury Warrior and Frost Death Knight).  DK also has the benefit of battlerez, but that won't be the difference between getting in a group or not.

 

Try the playstyles out on template characters and see which you like more.  Both are viable.

thanks for those fast answers, Ive started a Warrior because of the superiority in mobility and ive reached ø-ilvl of 895 in 5 days, im very happy with that decision so far but i will test dk aswell (loved to play that class back in wotlk)

and yeah i should have clarified that. I want to play those classes as DPS and only occaisonally as Tank (only when it is really nessesary)

      Something's been bugging me recently - why is mastery more valuable to an Unholy DK than versatility?  It seems to me that versatility should be superior because it increases ALL damage (shadow & physical) while mastery only increases shadow damage.  Does 1% of mastery scale differently than 1% of versatility in some way?  I assume I am misunderstanding something here about how versatility works.

      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!
