What class to choose?!

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.

      Hello, 
      I am concerned that I am severely under performing as a fury warrior. I can manage to parse typically in the 80s for almost every fight in heroic ToS with a few exceptions: Mistress, Host, Avatar. I'm currently 933 equipped and I'm not at all concerned about my stats... I know I should and could be parsing in the 90s. But I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. 
       
      My opener looks something like this: Charge, Pop Moonglaives trinket, Pop all CDS, Raging Blow, Oden's Fury, Rampage, then start normal priority rotation: Enraged RB>100 rage Rampage>RB>BT>FS. 
       
      I have recently discovered that I have been doing my execute phase entirely wrong. I just went and tried first two bosses of heroic ToS again. Parses went up slightly... Goroth: 83->89, Inquis:84->90 but still not where I need to be. 
      Another think I'd like to mention is that I try to prioritize Enraged RB @100 rage before hitting rampage. According to Kelade (one of top fury warriors in US), this is 100k dps difference. Although at times I find myself in an awkward situation where I'm at 100 rage with RB on CD and I literally have to wait a whole global to hit it... I'd like to know how to make that stop lol. 
       
      Last issue I'd like to bring up is this: Most of the time not all my CDs will line up perfectly together... BC, glaives, OF will be up but Avatar will be down. I'm slightly confused about when to use All/some of my cds... especially on fights like heroic KJ. Fights like Harj and Miss I'm confused about if I should hold all my cds for adds or blow them in the beginning along with prepot... I feel like prepot is a total waste without cds...
       
      Below you will find the link to my armory and logs. Please Help me. I need to be parsing much higher than I am. My guild is doing mythic and I don't want to be the one holding us back.

      What stat %s should we aim for?
    • By Mezasu
      I've been playing a hunter for as long as I've been playing this game.  And for the first time in raiding, I feel like I am not doing my best and I cannot figure out why. I look at second by second rotations of top parsing hunters. In the past I was the one helping others out and writing small guides on forums...now I'm the one asking for help. 
      Here is a link to Goroth Mythic (my hunter's name is Mezäsu):
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/KjRvcMqbYGrp16Bt#fight=3
      I am very open to criticism and any help anyone has to offer.
      I tried going into the Discord to ask for help there but was not able to get a word in (as the helpers were busy with other people). Hoping I may have better luck here.
