well, being a new player I found these classes comfortable and fun to play:- Hunter: It's pretty hard to get used to, as your play style is constantly changing, but, if you learn and adapt fast enough, this is a great class to play. They are super versatile and have an engaging play style that relies on many different moves and combos. Leveling is never boring, as your always having to change your fight pattern. In terms of PvP, the hunter is fun to play, because they are unpredictable and flexible.However, if you don't like to learn how to play a class STAY AWAY, because you will only mess up and further ruin the classes reputation. - Mage: Another fun class, in terms of move pool diversity, and the fact that the moves sound and look awesome. In PvP, mages rock and running around and blasting all their opponents. However, you must be a high level before you go there, as you will die quickly. Leveling one can get a bit boring in the very beginning stage, mainly due to having to drink water after every skirmish, as well as the fact that you die. A lot. Really fast.-Warrior: Surprisingly, warriors, can be very fun to play. Their high health and ability to wear mail from the get-go is ideal for players that like to attack a bunch of enemies, and manage to kill them all (with only a little health left). In PvP nothing is more thrilling than capping a flag, or successfully holding off many invading players. PvE is a bit more boring, as you will constantly rely on heals and potions. But again, the berserker, or the guy whow wants to have the BIG BAD armor and weapons, this is the perfect class.- Warlock: Another class that has a very hard learning curve, but very fun to level. For lazy players, this is awesome. You layer a bunch of status draining moves, as well as health eating curses, and let your minion demon do the rest of the work. Also, survivability isn't too bad either. Whenever you die, wait for the threat to leave and use a soulstone. It can get a bit boring if you aren't leveling fast enough as you will quickly notice the cons of your demon minion, so a fast leveler is key here.These classes were all right, and may suite other players - Rogue: pretty fun, however, managing energy is very different to managing rage or mana, and be quite tedious to get used to. However, if you like attacking you opponent just when you want and finishing them quickly, the Rogue is perfect. Plus, the moves and combo point system are intriguing and fun to use. However, you must remember to use stealth a lot, because rogues don't like taking damage.- Paladin: not too bad once you get the Judgment abilities, but, from level 10 to 15 can be a very annoying, because you learn many moves that are very pointless and hard to use, such as Lay on Hands, Divine Protection, and Hand of Protection are rather pointless to have at the time.-Shaman: Really fun, flashy moves. Versatility and fast healing spells are great too. But spamming Lightning Bolt for nearly 15 levels as your main damaging move can be daunting and boring. Managing totems is a bit dull to. I was actually having fun, till I cast Lightning Bolt for the umpteenth time and suddenly logged out, deleted the character, and hit a BG on my hunter.These classes, on the other hand, I found impossible to continue with- Druid: I was a bit off put when I decided I really hated druids, after making three, because every where I looked, people said it was a great class. For some it might be, but the first couple of levels are truly a trial of patience. In the beginning, versatile heal spells, and buffs are cool. But there are no damaging spells besides, Wrath and Moonfire, TILL LEVEL 20!! And the only form you get at level 10 is bear form, which is pointless, as it only provides armor and health, which you don't really need at that stage of the game. Cat form, or even Travel and Swim Form would have been far more useful. Shapeshifting is cool, but seeing as this is supposed to be the main style of play, it's disappointing that this playstyle doesn't start for a while)P.S. : Thankfully, come Cataclysm, the Cat form will come at 10, Bear at 15, and the travel forms at 16, so I might actually roll a druid again.-Priest: A diverse healing class. But for starting players, unless you know for a fact that you want to heal, is horrible. No DPS abilities besides Smite. You spend most of your time defending yourself.(WOW I wrote a lot)Again, this is just my experience with the classes, and my suggest which I hope will help other players. If you have a different playstyle, I'm sure that the classes I negative wrote upon will be better for you, or maybe not.
