On a quasi-related point, is there a class that doesn't have some associated faction? Shaman have Earthen Ring, Paladins have Argent Crusade, Warlocks have Burning Legion, Mages have Kirin Tor, Druids have Cenarion Circle... I guess Warriors don't have one specific, but each race Warrior is basically a soldier in their race's army.

Hunter's also don't have a dedicated faction, unless you count Nessingwary and co as a 'faction.' And it's kind of a stretch to say all warriors are soldiers. In fact it's hard to imagine how a fury warrior who uses abilities like reckless would even fit in a disciplined rank-and-file military unit.

No offense, but some of your associations are just flat out wrong. While all shaman are part of the Earthen Ring, and all druids are part of the Cenarion Circle, not all paladins are part of the argent crusade. In fact, not everyone in the argent crusade is a paladin/priest. All paladins have a core set of beliefs they follow (except maybe Belfs in Burning Crusade) but other than that, they pretty much associate with whomever they choose. As for warlocks, they are actually similar to mages from a lore standpoint, except that they choose to dominate demons for their power, while mages rely on their own expertise with the arcane. What its important to know is that, even though the burning legion has warlocks in it, NONE of the playable warlocks are in any way associated with the demonic faction. There is a HUGE difference between one who manipulates demons and an actual demon.

@paul.morales91 Actually your interpretation of what I said is wrong. All I said was some class-associated faction, as in not necessarily player characters are part of, but the faction (not necessarily a in-game mechanic faction neither) is associated with a class.

Sorry, my bad, but I still maintain that the Argent Crusade has more than just paladins and priests in it (I'm sure I saw darion fighting a tauren shaman at some point). To actually answer your question, warriors, hunters, and rogues do not have any sort of neutral faction HOWEVER some races (like night elves and tauren) seem to choose hunters over warriors in their armies, and alliance rogues do have a specific faction (SI:7). I cant say the same about horde rogues, then again I mostly play alliance.

The Argent Crusade certainly does have many classes - just my first thought when I hear "Argent Crusade" is Paladins, primarily due to Tirion Fordring.

Hunters, and warriors as a whole do not have an organization but blood elf hunters and warriors could, in terms of play, be apart of the Farstriders. Orcs could be apart of the Kor'kon. Forsaken could be deathguards. That just leaves the Tauren and goblins--though goblins could be mercenaries. For the Alliance, you could just be apart of the larger Alliance Army. For dwarves, specifically, there's probably a lodge or sub-clan for ya, lad. Worgen could be apart of the GIlnean Liberation Front, or the Gilnean Royal Army. Otherwise, you're on your own.

@paul The tauren shaman you saw fighting Darion would have been Rimblat Earthshatter, the Earthen Ring ambassador to Light's Hope Chapel.That said, the faction associated with player paladins is surely the Silver Hand, on the Alliance side of things?
