Most Popular Classes in WoW Classic #2

Recommended Posts

G6vtHrF.jpg

We're looking at the most popular Classes in WoW Classic based on the traffic generated by our guides and compare it with the last week's report.

Warriors and Mages continue to be the most popular Classes in WoW Classic by far. The Mage leveling guide alone has generated double the traffic of the Rogue leveling guide. At Rank 4 we have the Priest, climbing up from Rank 7. All the other Classes fell by one rank and Shaman replaced Paladin, occupying Rank 8 at the moment.

Well, it's not surprising that Paladin is at the bottom now. People love the fantasy of being a Paladin, but once that wore off, they realized that the class is barely even functional.

Pally's a must have in all dem raids and group pvp king and solo content god through relentless amount of autoattacks combined with strong CDs.

Well, of course Shaman and Paladin are at the bottom, when they can be played by just one faction. I would be interested to see, if they stay at the bottom, if you count them together. Make Shamadin for comparisons sake. ?

I was looking forward to play shaman, which was my main class before monk got released. But since i started with BC back then, i totally forgot that only horde shaman and only alliance paladins was a thing in the past.

Also not surprised druid is low. Even though they are a PVP monster and solid PVE. You have one race option and aren't the best at any of your roles.

I'm playing one because I want the flexibility and I'll be good enough to carve out a niche, but also understand that not being able to rez people in a 5 man can be a bit of a challenge.

Interesting study!  I do wonder, however, whether these ranks are biased by harder to level classes.  For example, hunters and warlocks are much easier to level than a lot of classes while warriors and priests are notoriously hard to level solo.  Another factor may be that some have more complicated leveling opportunities such as mages with AOE leveling where it can take quite a bit of practice for a new player to master and many intricacies in doing so. 

It does seem like a good representation overall though.  I know warriors are likely to be the most popular while the bottom three tend to be druids, shamans, and paladins historically.

What makes you say they're barely functional?

Because they have almost no offensive capabilities. Seals, Judgment, autoattacks, Retribution Aura, Consecration... and that's it. They're boring as hell to play, and they're mostly stuck in a supporting role, in both PvE and PvP.

The question I have. Is the created toon classes, or actually played and leveled/leveling. 

The data is based entirely on the traffic generated by our guides.

As a mostly support player in most games. I enjoy paladins alot in both pve and pvp. And to add paladins are ranked even with priests as healers up to naxx. So they are among the best healers and easily the best support class.

So i really dont see them as dysfunctional. I see them as extremly useful and working as indended.

Mages and warriors without salvation is boring.

They re hard to level up, not harder than warriors though. Once they LV up though their amazing utility buffs and debuffs, mostly auras, salvation buffs and Wistom judgement, allow far more bursty dps.
Also at high crit chance they do the same if not more heal than priests.

      Here's another from the Season of Mastery hardcore/die=delete character files, and unlike the raids where everything has gone off without a hitch so far (with 4 bosses dead), and the unintentional real-life feline assassinations, we have an actual death to a mistake here, and a very dramatic one, as while one player did die, the rest of the group was running for their lives!
      Duran and his group were clearing UBRS with the usual 10-man raid when a pull went very wrong, which resulted in a very tense bout of run for your life - and not everyone made it out!
      Here's the details of the pull:
      So there was a poly'd mob still in the room after we kill the mobs at the beginning of the video. The tank goes to break it, but as his shot goes off it pats, while in sheep form, close enough to the far back to social aggro when the poly breaks.
      The far group comes and on their way they social another side group.
      TLDR: Sheeps move, don't break them in a bad spot, don't sheep mobs too close to other packs.

      There's been many stories of deaths in the Season of Mastery so far, from PvP incidents to overpulling and general carelessness, but this one is special, as cdank was betrayed by his own pet, and not the Hunter kind either!
      While getting into a little trouble to begin with, with quite a few mobs and a necessary escape from the situation via Target Dummy, cdank could have still gotten away with the small error, but his cat had other plans... and there went the level 40 character with 72 hours played:
      While you can't really see it clearly, the cat not only alt-tabbed, but also drank a weaker heal potion as well, pretty much dooming the poor Warrior to this fate. This is probably not the first casualty to a keyboard warrior pet, but might be the first Season of Mastery one, and in either case it's a pretty funny one!
      Here's what cdank had to say about the situation:
      Still can't believe this happened. 72 hours /played gone in an instant.
      ...
      I’ve escaped worse with dummy. To be fair, I don’t disagree that I put myself in a “escape or die” situation, it was 3:30 am. The point is it was easily escapable, though I’m sensing this isn’t super apparent to everyone.
      ...
      I should have pointed out the target dummies on my bar in the video.
      Also the exit was completely clear.
      Also he used the weak potion bound to Z, so I couldn't use my good one.
      It might not be easy to see, but I had a very safe exit from this situation. The unfortunate timing of the cat was what turned this from a highlight to a lowlight.
      (still love him btw)
      ...
      It happens, honestly he just wanted some love, which I gave him plenty of afterwards.

      Duranasaur  and the HC Elite guild went back into Molten Core during the weekend and pushed further in with their death = delete Season of Mastery characters and conquered two more bosses, putting them on 4/10. They're currently the only hardcore guild that's gotten any bosses down in the raid and, as you can expect, they're going at it very carefully, but are not using non-hardcore characters to "scout out" the best strategies for survival (but are checking what other guilds did via logs).
      There's much fewer melee players in the raids as expected, with Magmadar hosting a pretty impressive 9, but Garr going down to 5 with only 1 Feral, 1 Rogue and 3 Warriors. It's also very interesting to watch a boss kill while staring at the player frames and seeing every drop below 80% be a dramatic moment, so it's definitely a unique viewing experience.
      You can check out the raid logs here and now let's get on to the video:

      More progress is coming this weekend as well, and I can't wait to see how it goes!

      In his latest video, Rextroy trolls players on his naked seemingly AFK Paladin and obliterates everyone who attacks him.
      This Classic combo is built around Reckoning and Invisibility. Rextroy stacks up Reckoning on some NPCs and baits people into thinking he's AFK. He's also naked wielding just the Unstoppable Force.
      Once the enemy attacks Rextroy, he stealths and leaves the enemy confused. While most think a queue popped up and he phased out, he's loading up a swing to obliterate them. You can find the exact gear Rextroy used to execute the combo in the video description on YouTube.

      It seems the Season of Mastery hardcore community has finally decided it was time to brave the Molten Core and risk their lives, since they are running a pretty strict death=delete policy on their characters!
      Duranasaur and company dipped their foot into the lava of the Core yesterday, as they weren't quite ready to go for a full clear, only daring to face Lucifron and Gehennas! The aim wasn't to go as deep into the raid as they could, but rather to get a use out of the reset in order to get the Tome of Tranquilizing Shot and some epics from the two easiest bosses, ahead of some serious pushes into the raid after the holidays. I'm not going to spoil how it goes here but if you're wondering whether anyone died head on down to below the video.
       
      I can't wait for the post-holiday attempts and the hilarity/tragedy of the Geddon pull(s).
