Picking can sometimes be hard to do.

When choosing a class for World of Warcraft, either to start the game or as an alt, it can be difficult or even daunting. The words used may be confusing (like whatever is a Paladin) and the descriptions mystifying. Our guide removes the confusion and gives you a straight up answer to what each class is, how they play, and why you should choose them.

It’s a tough thing to do, really. While you may have the extroverted exterior of a zany Warrior lusting for conflict in real life as you dream of one day truly becoming the delinquent that frequents your television shows… it may not be exactly what you’re looking for. On the outside the classes seem to fit within one major fantasy archetype (Warriors hit stuff, Hunters attack from a distance, etc.) and in a way they do. However, the amount of depth inside of each character is far more than just hitting stuff up close or from afar.
