Most Complex Classes?

11 posts in this topic

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!

If you want an incredibly difficult spec to master currently, go for Survival. It's very complex to properly master and play to the maximum capacity of the spec.

I agree totally, but it can be frustrating when MM hunter comes with his 3 button rotation and pulls a lot better with no effort, lots of mistakes  : /

For sure. Exactly for this reason, Azor in his Survival guide actually suggests people play MM/BM even though Survival sims higher than BM. The sims are so unbelievably difficult to mimic in-game. The spec is truly a complex class to play.

If you want a hard spec, try feral druid and raid (just stock some cocaine first, so you can begin to hope not fucking up your rotation).

He did explicitly say he didn't want to play Feral :p

To be fair, I actually rolled a druid at launch because of the druid skins. They are so insanely good!

Sub Rogue as of 7.2.5, I'd say. Plenty of complexity, with small windows of time to utilise perfectly.

It obviously has the added benefit of being one of the best melee specs/classes right now.

Fair pick - it does perform a lot better than SV as well, so that's a huge bonus.

Indeed. That said I'm a big fan of "play what you find fun". Especially considering how much things change with each patch.

      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.

      Does casting Ferocious Bite on a target with Rip active who is under 25% health ( or any health with the Sabertooth talent) while Tiger's Fury is active result in the refreshed Rip getting the bonus damage from Tiger's Fury

      Hello. I'm having a bit of trouble with my feral druid :c I recently got a new legendary as well(I only have the ring, the chest and the boots LW made). I initally ran chest/ring and noticed  a very big dps loss. So i tried boots/ring and my four peice and I didnt see much better?(keep in mind if i wear the legendary chest, I do not have my 4set).
      I can only get around 650 plus maintained dps. Maybe a bit more.

      I notice a heavy loss in dps when I have to move away from the boss, as well. Though I try my best to keep rake/rip uptime. I'll try to get a combat log I think we ran one tonight, though im unsure. 

      My opener:
      7seconds into pull, regrowth, stealth, 2 into pull; pre pot(the potion of old war), and pounce on target with rake-get five stacks and rip. tigers fury, etc. 
      EDIT: I should note i just realized im screwing up the opener. But I don't think that would damage my overal dps that much?

      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).
