Best World of Warcraft Classes

The Top Ten

1 Druid

4 specs, not 3! Need I say More?

Druids are awesome! They can tank, heal AND dps! Very versatile class and very easy to learn. Feral Druids for the win.

It was the class that made me play WoW and I do not regret choosing her as my main. The fact that you can change to suit so many roles is very handy. As well as having their own fast swimming and flying forms, battle resurrection, stealth in cat form and are just so much fun.

I think that feral and balance is strong. But I also think that feral is funniest for druid and restoration anyway feral wins me

2 Death Knight

The most powerful class

I think Dk should b the top because while I'm trying to kill Blood Dk on PVP battle with my druid I died like 18 times and he is only level 85 an I'm level 89. The most annoying class is Blood Dk they keep absorbing the damage and spells an they summon gauls while I'm in low hp

Death Knights are the strongest because they can tank, use magic and have the best weapons!

I have a level 85 Blood Death Knight and I am nearly invincible! DK for the win!

3 Mage

Mages are the Smart class of all :)
Powerful spells, high speed burst of damage.
Can polymorph in Pig.
Gnomes are amazing

They're pretty OP, man.

High burst dps and constant new spells as you level will ensure you never get bored power levelling. I recommend playing fire for the most fun as it is unpredictable. Sometimes crazily OP and sometimes "DIRT".

Hands down always one of the highest dps classes

4 Warrior

Big wieners

The best ever

Warriors are great. They do tons of damage and are great at shutting others down be it slows or canceling spells.

I liked warriors

5 Paladin

Paladin is a balanced character, can do a good damage with pure rotation, heal themselves and resist damage with his survive abilities.

There great I can solo heroic legion dungeons by my self

Can do a lot of damage and heal themselves. And also wear plate armor which is an additional bonus. Also paladins are very universal! Cheers

Awsome, they sometimes use hammers to deafeat their enimies, sometimes magic, and other times MAGIC HAMMERS!

6 Shaman

I originally played WoW back in Vanilla all the way through because, then eventually took a break until Cata. Shaman was one of the classes I had always wanted to try out but never got a chance to back in my because days. Its been a couple months rolling a Pandaren Shaman and honestly, I think the class is a bit underrated.

It has GREAT versatility, in that you can do either melee, ranged damage, or healing. You're a HIGHLY utility centered class, as you can have many totems for various situations, travel faster in a wolf form, and get get to use a variety of weapons such as maces, staves, axes, shields to name a few. Being able to wear chain armor also adds to suitability, which is a nice bonus when questing.

I think anyone looking for a versatile class that doesn't want to go Druid, won't be disappointed

Screw DPS and healing. Shaman is the class with the best lore and abilities in terms of concept. I mean, what kind of person doesn't want to have the power to control the raw power of the elements?

Most fun class in the game and it's my main it may not do a lot of dps but it sure is the most fun and that's the point of the game

Shamans are the biggest team players. I'm on Team Shaman all the way!

7 Warlock

I have a warlock in level 90. MOP. It is the best class I ever played because I love summoning pets in BG's. It's so wonderful playing WOW and playing Locks. I have over 90k gold and I spent it all on my gear so I will not ever get rid of WOW in my head - Jahed1234

Warlock is the best player at level 90. Wonderful attacks and good spells. Great minion's and high Damage. Warlock Is the best!

Undead yo

Warlocks are awesome!

8 Rogue

Other classes kill well people are witnessing it. The rogue- kills people in a flash, and they can go sealth!

Rouges are cool cause they come out of no where and kill you in a few seconds

This class takes the most skill yet hits the hardest!

I'm sorry, rogue is not for everyone, me especially, I literally fall asleep while playing it, even if I was wide awake 5 minutes ago, and they annihilate me in pvp, so frustrating

9 Hunter

Topping the charts with a hunter is a piece of cake, just learn to constantly move around your enemies in battle and you will dominate! One of the easiest classes to solo, and pvp with! Just learn to move more fluidly and you will understand.

Hunters are great. Not only do they barely die because their pet takes almost all the damage They kill fast also because of their pet. It also is very practical that it can track different creatures and invisibles. I also like druid but I feel everyone has one and its no longer original and it it gets a bit boring after a while if you ask me.

Hunters are awsome. Extremely powerful.

Hunters are awesome because they can shoot from a long distance so you could kill the enemies before they even come to you

10 Priest

Always have one of the best healing specs. Shadow almost always good in pvp, and sometimes pve.

Priests can heel, dps, and tank (only in self-formed group though). They're able to shield anyone from damage and/or bad magic/poison (discipline priest), heal a tank or a whole group/ half a raid group at one time (holy priest), or do considerable damage and heal themselves at the same time (shadow priest). Other than the fact that some of the better spells take time to cast the priest is basically unbeatable.

A class with varieties. You can Shield/protect, heal, purify or do a lot of dps. Spriest is also easy to level, very cool and fun class.

Up to level 60, priests are almost literally invincible in pve, and pretty close in pvp

The Contenders

11 Monk

I LOVE the monk class. it's by far my favorite. Already have 3 windwalkers 2 max level on opposing factions. most fun to play in my opinion

You guys are going to see monk rise to the top few of this list because they are progressing every day

It's Very good if your a Windwalker because your glyphs and your powers are very strong. So if you want to choose this class, the damaging is best

Since WW monks has touch of karma plus all those self-heals and the burst I would put the mon probably 3rd place since they are so unbalanced.

12 Demon Hunter Demon Hunter Demon Hunter is an American Christian metal band from Seattle, Washington, started in 2000 by brothers Don Clark and Ryan Clark. Although the brothers created the band together, only Ryan remains, since Don left the band to take care of his family.

Demon hunters are over powered, at least in vengeance. they have tons of health and are able to heal themselves, I accidentally pulled the first boss of black rook hold before the healer got their me and a pally soloed the boss.

This is what melee dips should be, fast, fatal, fun

Well that's the new one.

This is better than the legion fury warrior... Even if they're supposed to be the samething

They can sing and dance?

Bard playw musix

15 Anduin


He has a small dick

16 Legion Fury Warrior


You mean demon hunter?

Wow. Legion Fury Warriors are incredible. In the beta, they do insane damage and play very fluidly. They are incredible in PvE and PvP, but they are also unarguably cool and fun.

17 Human Human Humans are not exactly wild animals, but they are not domesticated either. Humans are proven to be the most intelligent species of animals on Earth. Humans' colours vary from almost pepper black to milky white.

Because man is stronger than anything out there!

18 The Coke Rogue, Outlaw

Because sub rogue and assassin rogues aren't strong enough. BEHOLD, THE MIGHTY OUTLAW META.
