Well, first of all let me say that everyone is free to roleplay as they choose. Some people feel like my open-ended questions about roleplaying are too imprecise to be helpful, while other people feel like my making direct suggestions is like I'm telling them what to do. I don't mean either of those. What I write is just one informed opinion, and I encourage others (such as yourself) to share alternate opinions on the topic. The readers, perhaps, can put both together and find some even greater truth for themselves."The shining spark of truth cometh forth only after the clash of differing opinions." (Abdu'l-Baha)That said, personally, I do not think that a farmer with a pitchfork fits well into any of the classes in WoW at all. It's just not a very heroic or even very capable archetype. The farmer with a pitchfork is by definition a farmer first, and a warrior second -- not at all trained and seasoned in fighting the way a warrior would be. Can you imagine a farmer with a pitchfork wearing plate mail, picking up a shield, switching to an axe and taking on a big dragon?Of course, maybe your level one warrior started as a farmer, then worked his way up through his adventures and training, so that he gradually changed from a farmer into a warrior. That could make sense. Alternately, if you wanted to take off the platemail and just use the character to roleplay a regular old farmer without a warrior's level of skill and sturdiness, that would be fine too. I'm not trying to tell you how to roleplay here, just offering my own sense of what seems plausible based on what I see in the game.
