I have tried playing on a private server a few times . Why ? It's an easy and fast way to try a new class to see if you like it for one without the massive time sink risk . You can easily power level professions and play around with those so that you can try and make money on the real wow servers again without the massive time sink risk that you would on retail . You can play around and do some pvp without getting a reputation as a scrub on the real wow servers so it's a good place to practice . I get why Blizzard wants to shut them down especially if the server is charging money to play but not all of them are like that. I hope they dont go after other smaller private servers because I know a lot of people who play on those and play the real retail version but just play on private for one reason or another . Tons of people who have started on private servers have gone over to retail because private servers are buggy as hell . Some people who might be going through a financial hardship play on those until they can get money for retail . Anyways it's not like provate servers are evil especially if they are not charging . It keeps some people interested in the game . You should see what happens to private servers when a new majot content patch or expansion comes out ....turns into a ghost town because all those people are still interested in playing the game on retail to some degree because of the private servers which keep them from getting bored to death with wows endless time sinks .

I see your point, that playing on private servers is a good way to try out a new class, and i have done that before. the problem is most spells are bugged anyway, and that really doesn't help you pick the class you want. one time on a server, my hunters arcane shot did damage to itself, not good.
