Hello there,

I am trying to find a character that suits me and 'till now i didn't find it..
I have a Paladin level 110, a Rogue, DH, Warrior and a Druid. I really enjoyed to play Prot. Paladin but i was overwhelmed with all the knowledge i need to know for raids.I have to say that this is the class that i played the most. I have to say that i usually play in weekends and sometimes in week days.
I enjoyed playing warrior in PVP but, that was it, nothing else..

Two days ago i just got my Druid level 110 and played as Feral (with the intention to play Resto or Guard 'cause i want to be a healer and/or a tank but i found the rotations a little off for me..)

Anyway, my question is, what should i play? I was thinking about a Disc Priest or a Ench/Resto Shaman or a Brew/Mist Monk. I just can't decide what i should play and unfortunately i have to level them from scratch..

Any advice ?

I really need a new perspective 'bout what i should play :)

Thanks!

There is no correct answer.

Every class has its strengths and weaknesses. It all boils down to where you feel comfortable. Usually it helps by not creating more classes and start grinding on one certain class.

But if it helps, here's my experience with other classes: 

I main Arms warrior and I have a Monk and Shaman DPS as alts. I don't enjoy them as much since they feel 'awkward' and weird when comparing them against my warrior. I didn't enjoy my warrior as much at first, but the more I got him geared the more I enjoyed playing it. I still have problems with my warrior, but I feel comfortable playing him.

I would recommend you give druid or paladin a try again, since they are both extremely versatile. If you're struggling with raids, try FatbossTV for guides since they explain a fight under 5 minutes (most of them). If you're having problem with rotations there are immense amount of guides for that as well. 

GL HF!

Sort of playing off what the person above me posted said, it sounds like you already found a class/spec combo you enjoy in prot pally. Raiding may seem overwhelming at first but especially for tanks there are typically fewer things you need to worry about than dps or heals, typically a tank swap and picking up adds, and that's about it. As noted there are tons of great youtube guides, fatboss is one of the big mainstays but I also found an individual called signsofkelani and his guides are pretty good too and many are tldr ones, much faster.

Another thing to consider is a different type of endgame progression. Mythic plus progression is another way to get end game loots (minus tier set bonuses which can be strong). I have several guildies neat max ilvl and all they've done is mythic plus progression. In addition on most servers I found there are niche communities of rift runners and you make a lot of good friends too :D

From there is you are heck bound on a new spec/class one of the better ways to help you is to ask what did you like about prot pally? Most specs play very differently from eachother so if we can pin down what you find fun we can better recommend other specs.

What i enjoyed when playing Prot Pally was the fact that with the right talents i could get some nice DPS and be a very good tank. Plus, being able to heal myself or others was really nice. (In dungeons i had no problems with the mechanics; i loved doing m+; the raid/s mechanics got me confused, some of them not all :) )

The thing about raid fights is that they are scripted.  Either abilities happen at % health of the boss or are on timers.  The only way to learn these is repetition.  It may seem overwhelming or confusing at first, but as you do them repeatedly they become more and more mindless.  

Typically as a raid tank (as stated above) you have less mechanics to deal with than the dps/heals.  Taunt swaps and positioning are a majority of the mechanics you need to know, and on some fights positioning can be fluid.

As far as what to play? the only person that can tell you that is YOU.  Others can give information but in the end you are the one paying for the game and you are the one sitting in front of your computer.  In the end, play what you enjoy playing regardless of what others say.  If you can't enjoy the game then there's no point playing it anyways.

The sad truth. You could probably practise it enough to do some fights with your eyes closed. Ultraxion would have been so easy to do just from timing in your head.

Just echoing what's already been said: If you actually enjoy playing your Prot Paladin and healing/tanking is what you want to do it's quite obvious what you should play.

You won't find another tanking class where you have to know less of the game. Knowing raid mechanics is something you'll need regardless of class/spec, though, tanks doubly so, I'd say.

Find a guild willing to play with a guy who is actually learning the mechanics, and you should be great.

Edit: Whelp, didn't realise how old this thread was.

My recommendation is a disc priest! They seem like lots of fun to play, you are truly very helpful in every aspect, and the transmogs are beautiful. Though i have never rolled one, they seem like lots of fun.

Can't deny that Priests transmogs are beautiful.

      I am glad I'm watching Chump because not only he's an inspiration but also because I was browsing through the standard priest deck lists provided here and even though it's a long list they are all pretty much the same (many of them no fun anymore, at least to me and def. no fun to play against) and I get the feeling lately Icy Veins tries to provide the most expensive decks only. No doubt they are effective and successful but as I said, getting bored and it's kind of bad for every new player visiting this page and just seeing (s)he has to play longer than some cards take to rotate out of standard to acquire a viable deck. 
      So, I was wondering why are the no decks like the following in this list, something wrong with adding such decks? Of course you can't add every possible deck type/variation but with a dozen Highlander and Dragon priest decks already being in this list there should be room for at least one or two others.
      All credit goes to Chump for this deck, I'm just posting it as well as his first video with it.
      Budget Aggro Priest: Total dust cost 1600.
      With all of the cards being basic, common or rare we can assume most players have most of the cards maybe a few to craft. Pretty cheap imo.
      2x Emerald Reaver 2x Northshire Cleric 2x Potion of Madness 2x Power Word: Shield 2x Voodoo Doctor 2x Golakka Crawler 2x Radiant Elemental 2x Shadow Ascendant 1x Deathspeaker 2x Happy Ghoul 2x Kabal Talonpriest 2x Auchenai Soulpriest 2x Keening Banshee 1x Darkscale Healer 2x Sunborne Val'kyr 2x Bonemare Deck Code: AAECAa0GAsYEmssCDoQB7QHlBPIMtbsC8LsC2MEC3cIC5MICyMsCzswCn84Cps4ClegCAA==
      He was playing 2 version of this deck with the other being a bit more expensive using Genzo, the Shark and Leeroy Jenkins instead of the 2 Auchenai Soulpriest.
      Have Fun :)

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      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.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      I need guidance!
      I'm a returning player from the MoP era, I've played throughout TBC and beyond and currently I'm a iLvl 890 Mage. I haven't played any of Legion launch content, no 7.1/7.2 content when I first started playing again. Currently I've been doing all of the broken isles quests, currently on the last which is Suramar and my entire Broken Isles Rep standing is at Honoured across the board at this moment in time (btw this rep wall for flying is a joke).
      So here I am questing, doing dungeons and LFR. Multi-tasking multiple things, I've just received the last follower for the class hall quests, it's so overwhelming and I have no idea what I need to do to make sure I'm not missing out any tasty loot because I'm an avid completionist and wouldn't want to miss a mount or title or anything haha! But like I said, I'm so very overwhelmed by everything and I don't want to be doing things that I don't really need to do unless I get something shiny. Am I gonna be screwed if I skip the Broken Shore? Do i just go straight into argus? I love leveling alt characters but if i do all this, and have to do it again on an alt, I would be so angry. Obviously the Legion flying will benefit the alt, but if I can just skip to Argus(?), is it really worth it? Like jump straight into argus if its not gonna damage my alt toons chances of getting gear? WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING AND WHAT AM I WASTING MY TIME ON? - is the question I'm asking here. I hate missing a trick, please halp ! D;

      So, I'm currently maining Blood DK and that's the spec that I've gotten my 4 legends on. I do occasionally use UH and was wondering which of my legends would be most effective for it. Just a foreword, all of the gear that the legends replace is about equal; all 915-920 and don't cause any major stat changes so its not like using one legend over another causes me to use a bad piece. I have Soul of the Deathlord, which is the one I use most on UH, and I have  Shackles of Bryndaor, Archimonde's Hatred Reborn, and Prydaz, Xavaric's Magnum Opus. Does the Shackles passive work on UH, if so, could that be a better boost for Val'kyr[Dark Arbiter Talent] (b/c you can cycle more RP)? Other than that I'm just wondering which out weighs the other, STR or the secondaries?
      Edit: and just in case it makes a difference, my talent build is; http://www.wowhead.com/talent-calc/death-knight/unholy/c75z
