Question The Helpdesk - What should I boost today*?

So initially I wanted to boost a mage or priest, but despite liking being ranged more, I like swinging/using weapons more than casting... so I've started to consider boosting a female dwarf DK or female human monk. Not only because I like the play styles but also because I want tanky classes to solo old content (and don't want to level my current monk and DK anymore).

So... what to choose? Should I allow the awesome rogue T9 to sway me, or do the impressive dwarven DK hairs trump the nice set? They are the nicest red locks I've seen in WOW, after all. There's also the benefit of being able of reaching level 60 almost instantly, on a DK, to consider, and the icons of monk spells look strange on anything that's not a pandaren (or worgen).

Of course, I could always stick to the original plan and simply boost a mage or priest.

*Today does not literally mean today.

Boost a warrior if you haven't already. Actually, boost a warrior regardless if you already have one.

Already boosted one. Haven't touched her since. I could go for a third paladin, though.

I just can't get into the mood of being a warrior.

Warriors are the one class I just cannot stand playing. Every other one has at least one spec I can get into, but not them.

It's one thing to have problems and voice your concerns, but when you endlessly bitch day in and day out about the same tired old shit, it honestly makes me wonder why you are even here. Generally when somebody doesn't like something, they stop caring about it.

And on that note, SoL is a forum I no longer enjoy. So, I'm done here. And I genuinely think the people who have absolutely nothing at all positive to say about the game and, the people whose posts are composed entirely of whining, really consider leaving (or at least sticking to non-WoW sections). Because if you truly get no enjoyment out of WoW, then why are you here?

With that said, goodbye.

I've found Fury to be good for mindless fun. Although I haven't tried it in beta without Smash so I don't know how fun it will be for WoD.

I'm stealing your thread, Oh Might Nazja. I need help deciding what to boost as well. I have a 90 of everything except a warrior, but I really want a Draenei paladin.

If I were to boost a warrior, which race makes the coolest one? I love the 2-hand animations of the pandaren warrior and I'm slowly leveling one, but pandaren look odd in a lot of plate and most helmets don't fit them.

Don't worry, I wanted this thread to be used by everyone who needs help.

If you were to boost a warrior, I'd go with an orc, tauren or dwarf. Their talents are tailored towards turning your warrior into a Blademaster, Tauren Chieftain or Mountain King.

No idea what to tell you about your paladin. I already have two and am contemplating boosting more, so... I need help there too. Turn one of mine into a draenei? Boost a draenei (and dwarf)?

90 levels at the price of an expansion... sound like Blizzard knew what it was doing.

An orc warrior... I hadn't considered that. It's perfect! I'll get a warrior and an orc in time for WoD! Thanks, Nazja-senpai.

Default Beardlings without beards? This is madness!

I still have that free boost, but I likely won't use it on a paladin after all.

So... let's talk Langobards... Since nobody on the WoD thread could help me, I'm taking this to the appropriate thread. If you had to choose between a female hunter, shaman, DK or warrior Longbeard, which would you choose? I already have all of those classes, but there aren't many dwarf classes that I haven't leveled before or actually want as a dwarf.

Dwarves feel best as Warriors, Paladins, or Hunters, I find. Priests CAN look good but not a huge fan. DKs still feel shoehorned into the game at this point for me, and Dwarves don't look great as Shaman (Wildhammer Player skins+Transmogs might change that but as it stands, no)

I quite enjoy my Dwarf Warlock immensely, especially with the skin tone/face I picked for him.

I boosted a Pandaren warrior because who doesn't love fuzzy pandas with giant axes?

DK's use runic magic and capture the Nordic feel though.

This time I don't need boosting help; I need race change help.

Female human or dwarf paladin? Tyr seems more human-/vrykul-related, so...

Go for human in that case.

I'm having a hard time preparing my inner nerd to the fact that my human Mage will be claiming Felo'melorn, when it should by rights go to a sin'dorei.

Stop basing your decisions only on one expansion. Play a dwarf.
