    I thought the same, but nearly 1/5 voters in this poll have said Yes

    I rolled my mage cuz I love throwing fireballs, and getting teleport and create portals

    Give me a dedicated Warlock tanking spec and I would never play another class. They have pretty much everything I am looking for in a class. Namely the evil/dark aesthetic, really durable, bad ass pets, unique utility. Only thing it lacks is the ability to tank raids.

    Maybe back when pure was actually a thing to be considered, but now it's not even a plus; let alone at times a disadvantage. I usually pick whatever I enjoy most, so it doesn't matter to me if all the class can do is one thing.

    Hearts are man kinds lock. If only everyone's emotions were a skeleton key, this world would be a happier place.

    Still, > 80% of participants not caring at all about the "pure" distinction is an overwhelming majority — I'm actually surprised. I was expecting the results to be inverted, based on how much the vocal people freak out when you suggest adding new roles to a pure.

    I honestly figured it'd be something like 5-10% at most voting Yes. It started out staying steady right around 15% (give or take a percent) up through over 100 votes, but then when I got back for a day it had gone up to around 18%

    I didn't even know what a "pure" was when I made my character. I just thought hunters looked cool and fun.

    I rolled lock for the playstyle.

    I guess you could say so, though I've never given it much thought. Though for me, since I only really focus on PvP, tank specs don't make a class a hybrid. There's hybrids, classes with healing specs, and everything else is a pure DPS. And I pick the pures partly because I have no interest in healing, and I don't want to be expected to. In the past I've played a couple hybrids, and there's always someone that tries to make me spec swap to heal. When I don't, they whine, so I avoid the issue altogether. Plus, as a pure DPS, I've got more specs to choose from.

    No I rolled my Hunter because it was the only class that used a bow for its main weapon.

    No, my first toon was a tauren hunter because I like pets. Server shut down for 2 weeks so switched servers and rolled a paladin which became my first 60. My next 60 was a troll rogue, not because it was a pure but because I was farming in Silithus and a rogue was killing between 2-3 mobs by the time I finished one.

    It was just a matter of wanting all of the classes.

    Sub/related questions:

    If yes: why ?
    If no: why did you roll it, then ?
    I loves me some Rogue class, I rolled it for the class, I'm just a DPS kinda girl.

    On the contrary, I rolled rogue in hopes that I could do some fancy tricks with avoiding damage. That eventually translated to my want to tank with the class. I love rogue for what I can do with it, and I love pushing the envelope by "tanking" when I'm able.

    No.

    I rolled because I liked the class abilities.

    I have pures and hybrids. I've rolled a hybrid on purpose, but I've never rolled a pure on purpose.

    I must admit I chose hunter because it was so easy to level up, but I've grown to like the playstyle over the years, ofc hunters have changed a lot since then but the general idea is the similar.

    Rolled a Warrior when I started back in BC just because I like warrior-style classes. No other real reason behind making a class for me other then "I like the concept" or "I wanna try."
    I like Aigis. Sue me.

    I rolled a Hunter due to the fact obtaining pets was interesting and engaging, currently challenge tames are the only incarnation of difficulty thats left, regardless I still prefer to snipe from a distance.
