    Maining Paladin and don't really regret it, I am leveling a second character (Hunter, lvl 32) to farm and grind with because Paladins can't really do that efficiently until later. But for raiding and pvp I'll play my Paladin, healbot + shockadin life for me. Ho Ho.

    I'm mostly referring to PVE tanking. Here's the breakdown.

    Trolls have Berserking. Even at 100% it is a decent gain for initial rage and a minor amount of threat (from white hits). Even as a DPS the 10% is a huge buff, if there is AOE damage you can fully utilize the 30%. The tiny bit of health recovery saved me in Vanilla a few key times. It's pretty abysmal tbf, but when you see your HP climb up by a tiny bit and then swung at for what would have killed you, then the healer gets their heal off? It's fairly seldom you'd ever see it happen, but man does it feel good when it does lol. Granted, these racials don't get a lot of love in PVP.

    Undead gets an extra fear break, which isn't exactly a make or break since Berserker Rage does this as well. Better in PVP if you're getting chain feared, but you're likely to see a heartbeat resist, diminishing returns, or break on damage anyway.

    Orcs get a huge stun resist which makes them amazing in PVP, and decent in PVE. Blood Fury is only good as a DPS. The +axes is rarely used as most tanking weapons are swords/maces. Again, better for DPS or in PVP.

    Tauren get a bonus to health, which only matters if a swing would have actually killed you and the extra health was above what would have killed another warrior in the exact same situation. War Stomp is great for dungeons (other than when you cast something you cannot dodge/block/parry) and decent in PVP.

    I regret going Horde to play with more friends, when I would've preferred Alliance, but without them I might not have passed level 40.

    Ya the zig zag is different. It tries to attack from behind when it dsnt have aggro. So it definitely looks weird when u send it after a target. I have noticed that it jumps down certain ledges instead of taking the long way but I wouldn't call that a bug lol

    I originally rolled a dwarf paladin but I found that class boring to level so I abandoned it and re-rolled as nelf druid but I just don't enjoy classic so I've abandoned that toon (and classic) too lol

    Thanks to Shyama for this beautiful signature <3

    I kinda regret rolling Tauren Hunter since it's a pretty bad race for Hunter, but that was my original character so I figured I'd throw it back. Kinda wish I went Troll because that's the race I played on live until Zandalari came out and they're also the best PVE race for Hunter, but I'm not too worried about it

    I rolled an Orc Shaman on Incendious. It was a last second decision. The group of friends I was playing decided to go Horde on the Monday before launch. We had planned on alliance for a long time. Around level 47 The last one called it quits. I should have just gone Pally like I wanted.

    It feels too late to reroll now as I’m decked out in raid gear and really enjoying the guild I play with. I guess I will wait til TBC comes out.

    If so, what are those regrets exactly? Have you rerolled because of it? Would be interesting to know.
    Rolled forsaken mage but felt too boring so at 32lvl rerolled nelf druid (45 atm). Much more fun and diversity.

    I thought I wanted a mage but I didn’t.

    As if that ever stopped a hunter from rolling on all loot.

    If you are going oom, you seriously need to invest into reading a guide to help you.

    Playing a warrior mostly solo while leveling sucked on a pvp server. Seems like every other horde I saw was a mage. Glad I chose gnome though. Running around with a pally makes everything better at 60 though.

    I regret not making sure my friends rolled Horde instead of Alliance. I just would have had so much more fun @ Horde. But it's okey.

    Male Troll Shaman here. No regrets just buying all the savory deviate delight from AH

    I've recreated the same characters I used on retail, to who I'm quite acquainted, and about who I spent a lot of time agonizing over every details initially. So they are pretty much exactly what I want them to be

    Only thing I regret is that I started my rogue as engi/miner instead of alch/herb because I thought "no other character would fit better for these prof". But I simply don't like engi, so I ended up giving up on it and going alch/herb nevertheless, but after wasting 175 points on each. That's not a heavy amount of regrets, though.

    Skarm went Tauren for that bonus health. He is a great tank that always seems to have great reasons for doing what he does.

    I re rolled yesterday as a Rogue. Pally is just too slow and boring. Auto attack. . . . Auto attack. . . . Auto attack. . . . Auto attack. . . . Auto attack. . . . Auto attack. . . . Auto attack. . . . Auto attack. . . . Auto attack. . . . Judgement. . . . Auto attack. . . . Aut...........

    Gave up at level 42. In Vanilla, I had 10 friends playing and we leveled together all the way to 60. So I was totally oblivious to how horrible pally leveling solo is.
