    Your favorite pvp class

    Hello!

    I am interested in hearing what is your favorite pvp class and why. Please add if you do random battlegrounds, rated battlegrounds, or arena.

    I am unable to create a poll or I would add one listing the different classes.

    Moderator, please add a poll or provide me the ability, please


    (Not a FOTM reroll, looking for input to help guide me and others)

    Depends.
    1v1 caster: shadow priest, hunter
    1v1 melee: feral druid, warrior, monk (as of next patch, though)

    And then you have group facero...I mean team players: holy pala, resto shaman, warlock, elem shaman, mage etc.

    Personally, I prefer 1v1.

    cata rogue and aff lock
    mop pvp is shit

    You can take out warrior from your list for being great at 1v1 for 5.2 if the opponent's you're versing aren't brain dead.

    I don't know why you'd mention cata when there's no semblance of class iterations left from it...

    Feel free to reply on the topic and give your opinion instead of just bashing other opinions.......

    For me it would be Retradin. why? well imo its a great support and has lots of surv/burst abb's to make or break a game. i also love 1v1 with ret's.

    Im thinking along the lines of Rogue for world pvp and flag snatching in battlegrounds. Also pressure on flag carrier and recapping bases

    Maybe a Hunter just for easy mode or a Mage. Thoughts?

    Hunter is doing pretty well this time around would be my choice for random bgs and 1v1s.

    My favorite pvp class would be my shadow priest. I mostly do random battlegrounds since I'm too casual to find a rbg group. Though occasionally I do tag along some rbg groups or arena.

    I've pvped as a priest since Vanilla and experienced various iterations of the spec (loved some and some not so others). Although I enjoy the current shadow priest condition, there some things I dislike about it. The things I like are: dots, burst potential, shadowform, fears, strong off-heals, and other utility spells (Void Shift, Leap of Faith, Mind Vision). The main dislike I have with shadow are its clunky mechanics such as the shadow orbs, FDCL and DI. Also, Mind Control not being baseline annoys me greatly.

    Honorable mentions would be: Discipline Priest (love the spec's design philosophy) and Holy Paladins (for their ability to stay alive and to deliver Huge single target heal bombs).

    Hunter is pretty good at the moment, and with the ''quality of life'' types of buffs we're receiving next patch it's going to make BM a lot less clunky and more enjoyable.

    I wanted to say that Hunter feels ''strategic'' and that's why I like it but I can't really type that with a straight face while fat fingering all your CD's and Stampede is still so effective. I guess I just like the amount of control Hunter has on the fight and being able to use (almost) all my abilities on the move as a ranged class.

    ARMS is so fun!!!!!!

    Survival Hunter, random and rated BGs. While you don't get the faceroll "blowCDsandOMGnoDPSafterthat" that BM gets (which is good for the shock and awe of arenas and duels), Survival tests your skills as a hunter much more than BM, as you need to use your full toolbox and kiting ability to handle multiple agressors. Definitely most satisfying class/spec, to me. MM was fun in BGs pre-MoP, hopefully that comes back around soon too.

    Mut Rogue, random BG, rated bg (occasionally), arenas (occasionally).

    Oh wow thanks much for the feedback.

    I am leaning towards a Hunter but fear that I will get bored

    Rogue does seem awesome but I hear they suck currently :/


    Khronius, That was my fear on a mage. Being easily shutdown.

    Yep. Sorry but mage is currently one of the most counterable ranged classes, down there with the warlocks and boomkins. If you want to rock pvp on a ranged class play hunter or shadow priest.

    Hell, even at this moment monks got 2 low-ish cd abilities that break magical roots, besides trinket itself, and next patch they'll have 3+trinket, making them unkitable by any mage as they cycle between them.

    I love playing my Frost DK. Really fun mechanics and Anti-Magic Shield is a great tool to get some one on one time with a caster I want to snuggle with I feel like a powerhouse when I play mine, and I suspect that's why I get as much enjoyment out of it as I do. I can't help but feel like we are super OP, at least in random battlegrounds where I find myself PvP'ing for the most part.

    When I feel like healing, I enjoy hopping on my Holy Paladin. Strong single-target heals and fun utility & escape mechanisms make for good times keeping my buddies topped off.

    OP, I'd suggest you first find out what you want to do. Narrow your choices down by picking what you like about certain playstyles.

    Example: Do you want to DPS or heal? Ok, DPS. Melee DPS or Ranged DPS? Ok, melee. Dual-Wield or 2-Hander? Ok, 2-hander. Arms Warrior, DK, or Ret Paladin? Ok, Death Knight. Unholy or Frost spec?

    That's my suggestion at least. Also, don't roll flavor of the month classes/specs at all costs! Better to be slightly OP for an expansion flying under the nerf radar than be blatantly OP for one season and neutered the rest of the expansion
    Armories: Death Knight / Paladin

    Resto druid for me, first char i played and I enjoy the active style of pvp, having good CC, hots and mobilty makes for a really dynamic enjoyable playstyle. I just do bgs and arenas, Tried RBGs and i just couldnt really get into them.

    What ?! Dks are the squishiest melee class. Sure they rock at steamrolling undergeared noobs and people focusing on other people but in 1v1 they lack tools and any kind of defenses, making them pretty bad for duels and wpvp against equally geared opponents.
