I first off have to applaud you on a very well thought out article, i was always interested in doing one such as this myself but nvr had the inspiration GJ ! :DIn spite of some of the posts here, i believe you have covered a very broad canvas in a decent fashion. I would like to remind all of those posting here that she is referring you new users first experiencing WoW, and almost every post mentioning end game stats and point distributions and gear setups are almost moot. Endgame is worlds different then the grind, and especially so for new players. It is very possible that one might get to 70 and find that the expectations for their class are different then what they expected themselves when leveling, but they at least have 70 lvls in which to discover many things on their own..and if they are reading WoWinsider, they have already shown themselves as a step above the norm, and im sure they'll do fine.the only parts of note I would point out have already been mentioned, however ill say them in a much more appropriate fashion. though paladins were known for a long time as healadins first and foremost (pre-bc primarily), the changes blizz has made to endgame, especially many of the recent ones, has made all 3 talent specs very nice additions to raids.In relation to shamans, in a similar light end-game has proven them quite viable as a healing spec, and in many situations the healer of choice. Of course, that means that just about every healing hybrid can shine in their won light, in certain circumstances, as well as their other specs. all in all, i can't really argue about the rest of your column. very good information, and if it doesn't satisfy the theory guru's or endgame min-maxers, it certainly gives the newb player far more vital information in making their decisions then most people get asking in general chat for 70 lvl of grinding...GJOn a side note...much of teh new wow experience is as much about proper approach and knowing your toon as it is toon selection. my warrior was a slow lvlr until i realized i need to take advantage of the $$ she was bringing in with her farming talents and buy decent gear off the AH...suddenly my lvlng skyrocketed! it also smoothed out greatly when i realized that, unlike my priest, my warrior (and rogue) depended highly on consumables and bandages to keep theri grind pace up. Its tips liek this that will make most peeps grinding days run smooth and enjoyable no matter what class they play. Perhaps a similar column on how to survive and make the grind easy.....
