I've tanked, healed, and DPSed with lots of the different classes and I can say I have a favorite for each situation.Tanking: Warriors all the way. I love the mobility that warrior tanks have in that we can zip around all over the place or be like a boomerang if timed right to go throw ourselves back at an enemy after being knocked back. Heck, we can save healers from having to top off our fall damage at the same time by doing the boomerang stunt. We may not be the best AOE style tanks because of not having any static area effects to drop for threat gathering, but we still have pretty solid means for controlling large packs.Healing: My restro druid is my all time favorite healer. I love the vast multitude of instant heals we have available so that we can keep people topped off on the go unlike most who might have to stand around waving at the tank as the tanks life is dropping fast. That and I can always fit in a "The tanks feeling hot hot hot" joke in now and then with my druid. It may not be the most engaging healing spec, but it definitely is fun for me.Ranged DPS: My warlock is my over all favorite ranged class. It was the first toon I made, and it was fun having these demons to call out to do my bidding. Its even fun to solo on my lock as its Felhunter pet got the name Wraamon which was my over all favorite of them. I also like being a pain in the ass in PVP by setting a lock portal becon in the corner where people won't notice and camp with the flag. If enemies come, I just jump down, run out the door and act like I'm trying to run for my team and then snap back to where I was and sit there chuckling until they come back and steamroll me with 8 people.Mele DPS: While I'm still in the process of leveling my paladin, I have to say its been the most fun of any of the mele classes I have tried. Swing a big axe, sword, mace, or polearm around while trying to smash my enemies and being able to sprint forward after casting judgement on an enemy that is a ways away. Their holy power system also is rather unique in feel to me compared to rogue/kitty combo points and the rage starved warriors that have to build their energy before they can even really go to town.
