Default Genn Greymane... Outlaw Rogue or Warrior?

Curious what you all think.

Warrior. He beat a demon to death with his bare hands.

He's a warrior. Crowley would be the rogue wanderer.

In HotS he's definitely more Outlaw, and given Blizz's cross-pollination I'd expect to see that come into WoW at some point, but as of now he seems warrior.

Warrior. He wields a greatsword. HotS is closer to Outlaw Rogue though but in WoW I'm going with Warrior.

I thought so too, but in Legion beta I've seen him with a one handed sword and a gun. Confused I am.

Isn't that also what he wielded in the cinematic?

In the cinematic I think he only used his hands.

Genn never struck me as a pirate, so warrior it is.

Outlaw is the spec of the modern young (elderly) lord.

He changes his weapons around actually, in the Stormheim beginning scenario he's using a sword/gun combo like he should be.

Anyway, I personally think he's a Hunter/Warrior hybrid. Him being a hunter was how he became cursed in the first place. He needs to do more stealthing and spying to be considered a real rogue but somehow his daughter knows the craft. He does have one ability in HotS where he can stealth but you have to talent for it. (Eyes in the Dark I think it's called.)

I wouldn't mind him going more the direction of a Rogue though, it would stand out more from all the warrior, priest, and hunter leaders.

He's described as 'a bear of a man' so Warrior seems the most fitting in with his original, Warcraft 2-era design. Being a big guy for you isn't necessarily going to shoehorn Genn into a Warrior position, but it certainly implies it's what they were going for.

Yeah but big guys can also be Outlaw rogues. It's not a sneaky kind.
