Pvp Class for a New PvPer?

4 posts in this topic

I have recently been on WoW and have been wanting to do PvP for a short while now. The only thing is I can't quite get my head around what class to try out for someone new? I want one that is fun and can deal a fair bit of damage so isn't too weak. I have been thinking Druid (druid also for maybe some soloing of raids) but then I start looking at other classes for PvP so I can't quite decide. Any help will be appreciated, thanks!

All classes have some learning curve when it comes to doing your role. The Proving Grounds cover some of the aspects you will need in PvP like either CCing the Healer, or to focusing him down first.  You should play with the class you are most familiar with.

 

But doing PvP has its own learning curves aswell, for example the setup you are playing: Arena and Battleground.

In Arena you will not be rezz'ed by a spirit healer once you die, so die'ing is a huge penalty, and in Battlegrounds you will be rezz'ed by a spirit healer, so you can sacrifice yourself to be a decoy.

 

Also, keep in mind you are facing other players. For one: You will know that they can be one of the ~34 Spec+Class combinations. Knowing what each of these combinations can do (Major damage/defensive spells and Crowd Controls) is also part of the learning curve.

You should play with the class you are most familiar with.

 

I disagree with this. While it is true that focusing on one class, especially as a more casual player, is better than rolling a new character every 10 seconds when it comes to success in rated environments, it is not mandatory at all. Though this example does not apply here: What if the class you played for 4 seasons suddenly gets a class change in the new expansion and you stop to like it? Should you keep playing it, because you are most familiar with it? I think not.

 

In the end, it's important to have fun in PvP. Whether that fun constitutes liking the class and gameplay or climbing the ladder is another matter, but if you care about the former more than the latter, I'd suggest you watch some streams and see for yourself which class's gameplay you like most. After all, we can't make the choice for you.

There are two main choices : going melee or range. And i think that is purely down to style-preference. I prefer melee classes and among melee, having played paladin, warrior, rogue, and druid, I think warrior and paladin are easier and fairly survivable.

 

If you prefer to go range, I have limited experience but IMO, you can't go wrong by picking hunter.

      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!

      I usually play face / midrange hunter but i've tried all classes. IMHO earthen scales is the most OP card now that quest rogue is gone. No matter what style of play or deck I try, I get them down to almost dead and then even on turn 5 or 6 they can add 7 to 15 armor or more. Is it just me or does Jade Druid seem to have ridiculous card draw allowing for more than realistic survivability?
