If you want to take part in the dicussion, please check my Latest Blog Article. I could use some input from everyone about which class guide I should write next, you will find the details in the blog article.

Please read the article before you reply, don’t just jump to your “post comment” button and say “Wurriorz cuz its my class lolz”. 😛
I’d appreciate if you could reply directly on my blog. If you can’t for a technical reason though, here is fine.

Thanks everyone!

    In order of preference.

    –In order of preference.

    – 1. I would say that a Priest guide would be needed the most, since it’s hard to figure out their rotations and as clothies they struggle with certain quests, mainly escort ones. Lack of AoE also makes things tricky.

    – 2. I, and other people struggle with leveling Warriors. As the most gear-dependent class of all, there’s need for instructions on where to get needed gear, and dealing with groups.

    – 3. Mage. While easier to figure out than a priest, and have AoE. The sucks at escort quests problem is still valid.

    – 4, 5, 6. Shaman, Druid, Paladin. Have some tricky quests, and their playing style aren’t always obvious.

    – 7. Rogue. Higher on the list than Hunters and Warlocks because of the annoying and hard horde poison quest chain. Could also use an in-depth discussion about poison choices.

    – 8, 9. Warlock, Hunter. Easy-mode.

    I’ve tried to thinkI’ve tried to think logically about there being a reason for putting certain classes before others.

    Hunters – low priority. Everyone and their sister has a hunter alt, they are a nobrainer to level even for newbies.

    Paladins – high priority. Always been a hazzle to lvl. Low base DPS and mana issues if you want high burst dmg. Would like to see you solve this one:-( Changes in WotLk not considered.

    Locks – high priority. Somewhat complicated to learn for newbies, but given how fun locks are if played right, I’d love to see your reccomendations for this class.

    Warriors – high priority. Giev bandages! Please show me how to not die when I get more than one mob at a time:-p

    Shamans – Low priority. Enhancement is the way to go and it’s autoattack spec ftw.

    Druids and Rogues – Medium priority, they are easy to lvl and especially druids fare well against though mobs. Easy to learn as the new abilities introduce themselves in a very self explentory way.

    Mage – Medium priority. Easy to play but show me how to not drink every two mobs:-p

    Priest – Medium priority. No downtime if played right, but rotation is often a speculation here (one mind flay or two? use mind blast? how soon do you start to wand etc.)

    Those are just general viewpoints ofc, and classes change playstyle during lvl’ing, I’m here thinking mostly 40+ as that’s when you really start to have your build set for you (again changes in WotLK i can’t comment on since I’ve only actively tested it with my DK).

    The race.I think you should start out with the rogue, or the classes you’ve “plaied” when making your former lvling guides, since i would assume you know most about them. Therefore be able to finish that guide faster, before moving into more “unknown” territory. 😉

    Another theory, could be to make the guides with the more “complicated” class first.
    I haven’t plaied that many classes, but heard that some classes should be harder than others to level up.

    Just my 2 coins.

    Unfortunatley, my internetUnfortunatley, my internet wont let me on blogspot for some reason. It might have chickenpox or something 😡
    To make it fair, I think you should go in alphabetical order. I assume you have written the guide for Death Knight, so next would be Druid, after that, Mage, and so on.
    Anyway, thankyou for all your guides, this site etc, and good luck with your future guides, too! 🙂
