    Starting from scratch. What class would you play?

    Destro lock, personally. Might be slightly biased, but blowing people up with Chaosbolt and sniping low health people with Shadowburn and the pretty stupid self healing we are capable of in random BG's is just plain awesome.

    And if you mean from scratch starting at level 1 then I still think Destro lock is pretty good. You don't get the Ember consuming toys till past level 42, but you could still put out some damage I guess + you'll always have Fear from level 14 onwards.

    Probably hunter. They are pretty straight forward.

    Are we talking leveling through BGs and having fun?

    In this case, go Mage. Shatter and Ice Barrier are brutal in low level PvP.

    If we are talking about lvl 90 random BGs, then go hunter, mage or rogue. Hunters are pretty dominant in random BGs because they can sit back and nuke people. Most random BG players don't know how to fight ranged classes like hunters or mages that can slip away. Rogues will become dominant in 5.2 if the PTR changes go through. You just sit in stealth until you see some low hanging fruit and gank them with +50 energy, Marked for Death and Shadow Blades.

    Druid, no other option really.

    A druid gives you four different speccs allowing for a lot of versatility, at least ONE specc has always been overpowered or at least been very close to it. Currently has three fairly strong speccs for Arena/RBG and in general gives you the most for the smallest effort while being insanely easy to play.

    But.. but.. Pally isn't on that list? Out of those on the list, I guess .. well, I have PVPers of all those classes except Mage. The most fun I have is on Rogue.. so either Mage or Rogue.

    I started WoW as a Rogue. I haven't touched him since I level capped him. Then I rolled a Warrior, was happy with him for a while. But, now I want a Retadin and leveling one currently.

    But, there's really isn't a point in making this thread a poll if you're only making 4 classes an available option...

    Last time I checked, WoW had more than 4 classes.
    I'm assuming something went wrong with the poll.

    As it is not on the poll, I'd pick shaman.
    I've been playing him the longest now, after druid in vanilla, hunter in tbc, then midway wotlk I changed to resto shammy, barely looked back. (only other competitor nowadays would be a rogue..I love stealth :P)

    indeed druid. need a fc for your rated bg? go gaurdian. need a dps for your dot cleave rbg? sure go moonkin. need a healer for your rbg? sure go resto. need a dps for arena? sure go feral. everyting you want/need a druid can do it.

    or go with the class/spec you like/love? because every class can pwn bots/noobs in random bg...

    None of the above, I'd go prot pally and flag carry/tank bosses for my bg career. So Much Fun!

    Hunter is really fun and strong in bg's, have alot off fun on mine. On a rogue though you can pick your fights and vanish if you so feel like, though they are not so good at facing multiple opponents.

    I would go with hunter.

    Druid. Restoration and Balance are insanely overpowered at lower levels.
    Right, as the world goes, is only in question between equals in power, while the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must.

    There is a modern myth that people have always tended towards democracy, constitutions, electoral rights; but in truth, love of freedom has never been the predominant note of popular politics. At most times, popular demand has been for a strong government.

    Melee = Rogue

    Caster = Mage


    If it were me though I would choose Afflic. Warlock or Shadow Priest in an instant.

    Mage has always been fun for me since I started playing. Everything else on that list is extremely boring imo.

    Somehow I doubt you actually play a mage.

    Mage, ghostcrawler's favorite class for about the last 5 years.

    Seriously, it is a lot of fun. My favorite alt and you didn't list my main.
