      The spellbook has been redesigned in the War Within update, but not everyone likes the new UI. Here’s why.
      Starting with the War Within pre-patch on July 23, this is what the spellbook in World of Warcraft will look like. 

      With no resize option implemented for the spellbook, the main complaint is that the new design takes up the entire screen.
      There’s only one button to resize it, and even then, the single tab still dominates the screen. If only the background were translucent, so you could see what's happening with your character.

      What do you think of the new design?

      Find out what others are planning to main in the War Within expansion!
      With just 40 days until the War Within early access launch, players have been sharing their main class choices on Reddit, generating over 900 responses!
      We've taken the data and created a bar chart illustrating the number of comments for each class (or spec) mentioned in the Reddit discussion and here are the results!


      Most Popular Classes:
      Hunters: 121 replies Paladins: 103 replies Druids: 101 replies Mages: 96 comments Shamans: 58 replies Warriors: 49 comments Priests: 44 comments Rogues: 28 comments Warlocks: 25 comments Monks: 18 comments Evokers: 12 comments Death Knights: 10 comments Demon Hunters: 7 comments The most popular classes are Hunters, Paladins, and Druids and the least popular class people plan on playing in the War Within is the Demon Hunter.
      Hunters are the obvious choice because they are easy to play and have unparalleled survivability. With two pets out, there's barely a chance enemies will ever touch you before they die. The class has good mobility because most spells can be cast on the move. Paladins are favored for their ability to both tank and heal. Many players also love the class fantasy and armor. Druids are often picked for their versatility. You have the whole package in 1 class. They also bring a lot of utility in both Mythic+ and raids. Maybe you're thinking, "Stan, why should I choose my main based on what most people pick according to Reddit comments?" That's a valid question—you don't have to. This post is just here to give some ideas, like when you're looking up names for your WoW character. If you're truly interested in what the pros have to say, check out our recent Mythic+ tier lists from the Beta, created by Petko!
