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)

      I have a question for Arcane mages that I couldn't find existing guides mention on any website. In dungeons, mana is not typically an issue as a healer because you can just drink/eat in between packs, I mained a healer up until now so that mindset is just ingrained in me. As Arcane Mage, would the same principle apply? Is it optimal to just forgo the conserve part of the rotation and just burn as much as you sustainably can with every  pack, since you can just eat conjured food in between packs, or should you still do conserve/burn phases similar to what you'd do in a raid?
      Thanks.

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting range DPS & Tank. We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 7/11 Mythic Antorus. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:15 PM until 12:15 AM Eastern. Currently, our main goal is to push Mythic progression & finish out the raid before next patch, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us, because we will not be doing Heroic or anything like that.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated. In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
      As far as classes are concerned, at this time, we do not have ANY rogues, DPS warriors, havoc DH, or wind walkers.
      If you are interested, add me to battle tag and we will talk (violentravi#1826), I will accept mostly anyone who wants to be a bench or casual, but for raiding purposes, you must be able to provide logs.  If you cannot get ahold of me in game, I work nights, please shoot me an email, I check it at work often and I can get ahold of other officers via text/discord if it's urgent! violentnacho@gmail.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.
