Classes are just one of the many ways a person can customize their gameplay on World of Warcraft. If using the avatar for roleplaying, the class can have a huge impact on how the character is played. If playing on a regular server, or not roleplaying, the choice of a class determines what skills a person is bringing to the table. The greatest part of class choice is that everyone is able to make the character their own. There is little chance that two characters of the same class will have exactly the same gear, glyphs, talents, or even rotation. While some people might look up templates and use the same build as another, there will almost always be differences. Even if it simply one character having short red hair and another having long black hair.
With the release of Mists of Pandaria, WoW has gained another class to choose. Currently, there are now 11 classes in WoW that can be played by either faction. Each class has a set of roles that it is best suited. The main roles found in World of Warcraft are damage, healing, and tanking. Don’t be fooled, though. Some of the class choices, especially in PvP, are pretty mean hybrids.
In the days to come, I will be exploring the different classes in WoW. I will discuss and describe each class in detail, ease of playability, expected roles in PvP, roles in instances and raids, hybrids, and more. Included will be information on history and lore for each class. I have to give some love to the roleplayers wandering Azeroth.
