20 Days of Wow: Day 1 – Favourite class and why?

I’ve also fallen for the trap of ’20 days of Wow’.
Time to tackle the first one: Favourite class and why?

I’d constantly screamed Druid on this one. When I started to play this game 6 years ago, I was looking for a shape shifter and I just loved the explanation for druids. Now back then I had the choice between a nightelf or a Tauren. Six years ago I didn’t like the cows that much (how things have changed!) and I made my first nightelf (female) druid. I guess I do fit a stereotype.

I just wanted to shapeshift all the time. I wasn’t that excited about the bearform, but I adored the kitty one. Every time I switched servers I would make a new nightelf druid. I did get frustrated with the class after many years. I didn’t know what I wanted to do with it. Healing, caster, feral dps and I’ve even tried tanking, though that ended early with all the aggressive pugs nowadays.

I do still love druid, but I felt it was time to try out something new. In the last years I’ve tried all of them and I soon settled for a mage. I liked the high dps and all the little tricks. It amused me for at least a year. Again, I got bored.

However, I’ve recently rolled an orc Shaman and I’m loving it. She’s quite fierce (in my eyes) and I thought enhancement would be interesting. It’s so different playing that. I guess my love for shamans has also grown after reading Rise of the Horde and the story about Thrall. I’m a huge sucker for lore. So for now I am going to say that shaman is my new favourite class, but druids will always have an important place in my heart.

My husband has told me that I’d probably love warlocks even more, so when Cata hits us I’ll be making a goblin warlock and see if they can move shamans of the first place!
