If you want to play WOW for a long time roll a Druid. I'll tell you why:My oldest character is a Hunter, it is the character I have the most of everything on. 50+ Mounts, old-school mounts, rare hunter pets, 60+ companion pets, novelty goodies and of course 3600 pointsworth of Achievements. 25+ reps at exalted. 11 Different titles... (including some old school ones like Blood Guard and hard ones like Loremaster) I have a massive amount of money and time invested in her.What a mistake that was! In many ways I am now locked into my Hunter roll, just due to all the work I put into her. DPS is all I'll ever get to be unless I start all over on my efforts.IF I had thought it over, and used my poor tiny brain... I would have rolled a Druid from the start. Man I am such a moron...Being a Hybrid that is very good a a LOT of roles, I could easily adapt to anything I was in the mood to play. Kitty Rogue, Bear tank, Tree healer, Boomkin... All roles are within easy reach and anytime I want to mix it up, I can respec.My hunter has no such luxuries. All that work I put into this game is now locked on one character which can only be DPS. IF you're wise (unlike me)... you'll play a Druid.

Plus, stealth, even when you're not filling the Rogue role! And instant-cast flying mount! And the Tree dance!

HOWEVER, when you first started playing your hunter, druids were almost a joke. Jack of all trades, but not great at any of them. My first toon (and my main) is a druid, but pre BC they were not that great. BC fixed a good portion of the problems, and Wrath really has made the class shine (finally a OOC rez...).Bear tanks are still a little iffy, but Cat, Moonkin, and Tree are very good at what they do. At least now they are.

I do SO agree with all you've said! The only difference my main is a Mage. Sure, I love the burst damage, portals, free food etc., but I would be so grateful if I could change him into a hybrid! I'm tired of looking for tanks and healers over and over again...

Thanks for this message.I have been playing for a couple of weeks now trying different races and classes, but reading your message makes me deside where to put the real time in.I am going for the druid !If you can give me one more good advise about the professions,I am thinking of alchemy and herbalism. Would you agree on that?I am looking forward to your answer !
