Another Alt…

Alliance BadgeWith Cataclysm on the Horizon I’ve decided to tidy up a few of my characters, namely my priest as I mainly made her to give me an experience at healing but after tying her up with tailoring she was/is going to be my bag vendor. However as much as Mind Control appeals to me I just haven’t been able to push myself to level her.

In the time leading up to Cata launch, instead of pushing myself to level up to 63 in order to break the 300 cap on my tailoring, I’ve decided to take an easier route and kill 2 birds with 1 stone. I’m going to buy a new account for a friend so we can RAF (recruit a friend) at least one character each to 60. Then I’ll use 18 of those reward levels to get my priest up to 60 aswell as throw a few spares on other <60 characters such as my 55 warlock etc. But like the dilemma I had before with what to level my Worgen as I'm now stuck on what to level with this RAF. I need a Tank character, it goes against my squishy tendencies but there has been countless times my friends ask for some help on a quest or dungeon and none of my characters are strong enough to take them through. Deathknights have never really appealed to me, my first and only is still stuck on 56 since launch. Other than DK, I have 4 classes left to pick up; Shaman, Druid, Paladin and Hunter. My hunter is being left for my Worgen starting zone and I may try a Shaman if I can't push myself from 1-60 in the new Azeroth with my Hunter, so its down to a Paladin or Druid tank. Both can heal and mix it up to play multiple roles, both are known as great tanks although Druids edge ahead on the healing side if I ever did want to mix it up. But Paladins can do great AoE tanking which would help out massively in boosting friends through dungeons. I've got about a day to decide as my copy of WoW is in the post so no pressure!

Which Worgen

As an alliance based player, Worgen is the upcoming race for me to roll when Cataclysm hits. I will most likely roll a goblin at some point just to try out their starting zone, however I hope to have an end-game Worgen sooner rather than later.

However I am stuck with a dilemma, which class to roll with my Worgen. When I first heard about the race I noticed they could be Mages and even though I had a Mage I thought I would just wait for the customisation to open and change him, but this would mean missing out on the starting zone so I need a new class.
Ideally I would love a Worgen Rogue, it seams the class they fit the best, except I want a class I haven’t already got so that rules out; Rogue, Priest, Mage, Warrior, Deathknight and Warlock, pretty much all the classes open for them. The classes I’m yet to roll, that I want to try, include; Shaman, Druid, Paladin and Hunter. Ruling out Shaman and Paladin as they aren’t available for Worgens I’m left with a Hunter or Druid. Ideally I really want a druid more than a hunter, but one the Worgen’s big features is the human/worgen transformation. With a druid already being able to transform (and being in its forms most of the time anyway) its a killjoy to even using a race that looks good. This leaves me with only one option, it looks like I’ll be rolling a Hunter in Cataclysm.

I don’t mind Hunters, being one of the easiest classes to level as well as a great dps output it should be fun to give a go. On the other hand I would rather have a more melee based class such as Warrior or Rogue, but that would mean getting one of my current characters swapped over. I don’t want to do with my tiny Rogue so chances are I’ll go with either swapping or deleting my 61 Warrior. I levelled him with RAF anyway so wasn’t too much trouble but its still a bit of a waste.
Ahhhhh decisions! Still got a couple of months to go so hopefully I’ll be able to decide on a class but it is a real shame most of the classes I would prefer my Worgen to be I already have :(.
