    Best PVP class?

    So I've been playing wow for a long time and i am just tired of getting a pvp set with all my toons to pvp with them(not to mention my pally has prot, hol, and ret pve set plus holy and prot pvp sets its a lot of gemming and enchanting for one toon). Going to roll a new toon for only pvp, just not sure what class would be best overall

    Frost Mage. Always have been always will be.
    Some spec of some class might come around and be in the spotlight every now and then, but overall its Frost Mage ever since vanilla.

    Edit: If you're a Frost Mage and dont think i'm right, its because you're not that good. Not your class.
    If you on the other hand play something else and dont think i'm right, chances are that you're either playing that 1 class/spec thats in the current spotlight or just thinking about that 1class/spec that might be better against YOU.

    Which ever one you enjoy the most and will feel better to you. The best pvp class is the one you play the best at plain and simple. though spriest is pretty good imo ince i play one

    Depends!

    What playstyle fits you?
    Do you like melee classes more than caster classes or hunters?
    Do you want to play 2v2, 3v3 or 5v5 or rated bg's (cataclysm) or all of it?

    To simply put out a question like that, asking what is the best class, is just as good as asking for nothing! Some will tell you that spriest are unbeatable 1v1 atm, so you should roll that. Others will say that Warlocks are awesome, some will say that mages have good cc and therefor are the most fun to play.

    See if you can't rephrase your question, so people with proper knowledge on this topic can actually help you!

    I hate these questions. It's your freaking choice. Do it on your own. If you hate gearing some toon, obviously you shouldn't pvp with it. You like melee or ranged. That gets rid of half. You like to heal or dps. You like tank damage ie plate etc. Make up your own damn mind. lol

    Rogue.

    Lets review, has done well in every pvp season.
    Never stays to nerfed for to long, blizzard likes to fix us when we suck.
    Stealth. (self explanatory)
    Sub will be amazing in cataclysm.
    I like chocolate cookies.
    You get to pwnt noobs?

    Not putting this out there so general like this for no reason. I play ranged and melee all the time and i like both. and as far as not wanting to gear them i dont mind getting gear i like to have gear for every spec for all my toons, its that im tired of running around with full bags and bank slots on them for the different sets of gear. i probably spent over 100k on enchants alone throughout WOTLK

    And yes i do plan on playing BG's And prob 2v2 and 3v3 is where im strongest maybe some 5v5

    Alright then!

    My suggestion is mage then. Since you are rolling a brand new one, I would suggest frost mage. You can/should level as frost, and do some bg's on the way, so you start getting the feel for frost pvp. You will get a fun a capable pvp class. Rest is up to you

    Have fun

    Warlock was and will always be a good contender for the best PVP class. If one specc gets nerfed you switch to another that is a completely different piece of cake. Though the best tree seems to be destruction for some time now. I agree that frost mages, if played well, are really hard to control though with the fellhunter as a pet they're not that hard.

    However with that pet you're quite open for attacks of rogues that most likely own you if you aren't ready with all of your CDs.

    Also Shadowpriest and of course Discipline Priests seem to be pretty badass lately. Also it's the only class (besides warriors *duh*) that can dispel iceblock and divine shield in a blink and is able to turn the tide of any battle that way

    Ranged: I'd go with a hunter or a mage.

    Melee: I'd go with a rogue or an ret paladin.

    Healer: I'd go with a discipline priest or a resto druid... but pvp healing is boring.

    Thanks guys for the input. and for the record at 10 im lvling solely in bgs to get as good as i can at pvp with that char. i have nough crafting professions on my alts to keep him in decent gear and all boas

    Since what i saw in ptr : Priest imba atm (all trees). Mage is all time classic mage (best caster class all around).Rogue is very good also.Druid both feral/moonkin is far better than on live.
    I'm not talking of numbers,i'm talking mechanics etc.

    Wow, how aren't Druids winning?

    In Cata they're one of the best BG healers as Resto and one of the best BG DPSers as Chickenkin, and rated BGs are going to be the new Arenas I hear.


    Priests are up there too with SP and Disc, they might actually surpass Druids, we'll have to see.

    that's pretty bias, you fail to mention ANY reasoning at all :P hope your rl occupation ain't a lawyer haha

    best pvp class i'd say would be rogue, sure frost mage counters it but rogues op more classes then fm does

    I'm going to be totally un biased and say mage.

    Nope, not biased at all.

    At. All.

    No, frost can counter pretty much any class/spec. MM hunters, and healers are the only thing that give us trouble. If you play a rogue, you must fight some pretty bad people if you're winning every fight.

    Mage for ranged, rogue for melee, priest/druid for heals. My vote would go to mage though.
