    Smile What class to choose in patch 5,2

    Hi, I know people has been asking these kind of questions all the time.. But I really can't choose what class to go for this patch. I mainly play ret, but I think the class is decent, but just to boring playing style..

    Im not sure what to go for of Mage,rogue or warrior. thanks for all the answears!

    Rogue. They are going to be nuts next season.

    Mage or rogue. Mage nerfs are getting reverted. Rogues are getting overbuffed.

    If you have the option of going monk do that instead of all of the above.

    Warriors will likely be pretty viable but on the weaker end of things next patch.

    I wanna mock you for being a FOTMer. But then I see you're playing a Ret (like me) so I completely sympathize.

    Basically any class except Rets and DPS Shaman are easily in demand for RBGs.

    Casters - Locks >= Mage > Spriests

    Healers - Always in demand, no matter what class. Even priests getting some nice buffs which could work out, if not Shadow is strong as hell still.

    Melee - See above for shitty melee. Everything else works very well esp. Lolgrip Knights

    Tanks - Go warrior or feral. Blood is better served by being Frost/Unh, and Monks and Paladin tanks rely too much on active mitigation, which means stun = dead. Granted I may be wrong on brewmaster monks, they're unproven for now.

    Did you imply Locks are bad? You surely can't be participating in active PvP now, at least at a decent MMR. Warlocks are in a very good spot right now, a Chaos Bolt can easily lose you a match in seconds.

    And I have to do this as well: LOL
    Yes, warlocks are in such a good spot. 120k chaosbolts, so overpowered. Sorry bro, but warlocks are only half decent in RBG because they can chain chaosbolts, spam blood fear and prevent flag captures with F&B. Now lets see, blood fear is getting nerfed, F&B is getting nerfed and surprise, even chaosbolt is taking a small nerf because of the GoSac nerf.
    And in arena, I'd wish they were in a good spot.

    I am personally thinking to work on my priest myself, I want a healer at 90 and I always enjoyed the priest class.

    If you're gonna lolquote me, at least do me the courtesy of quoting in context. I'm referring to RBG demands when I put those rankings:

    Basically any class except Rets and DPS Shaman are easily in demand for RBGs.

    Casters - Locks >= Mage > Spriests
    Yes, for RBGs locks >= Mage because of their utility (gateway, AOE, etc). Dispute that if you wish.


    And for the guys out there making it sound like Lock is somehow the worst PVP spec in the game, who are you kidding. I'm not saying locks are top of the crop - because that is always going to be debateable - but they are MORE than viable in arena and RBG. Plenty of 2000+ Rated locks in BG9 alone, let alone other battlegroups. No need to overdo the hyperbole on these forums. The fact that YOU'D say locks are worst than Rets or Elemental Shaman right now astounds me.

    If you get hit by chaos bolt you play at 2k mmr probably. No decent lock even plays destro.

    Edit: unless you play rbgs my b

    And surprisingly enough, frost mages alone are better represented then the whole warlock class in RBG.
    Spriests are higher represented then destruction, and so is retribution.

    For RBG, warlocks are the 4th least represented class, with only rogues, monks and hunters doing worse.
    For arena, we are the 4th least represented class as well, with rogues, monks and deathknights below us. We've dropped under 4% representation already, and still decreasing. Mages are the 5th least represented class, sitting on 9.2%, being roughly 2.5 times as much represented as us.

    If you want to play melee, Rogue.
    If you want to play caster, Mage.

    This, or balance druid if you're good at it and spec vortex + play with a DK with gorefriend's grasp and have large radius solar beam.

    Doomshrooms + vortex + mass entaglement + solar beam + starfall + gorefiend's grasp , maybe howling blast. For extra flavor add bladestorm, smoke bomb, binding shot... just bring some friends
