Paladins, but only on the horde.

If you're talking Alliance, then I would say Taurens.

In my opinion? Priests! There's just too many of them. Makes it hard for me to find instance groups.

rogues are all over the place. If you are shopping for a class to play and be able to get into groups be a preist.

lol^^

It's gonna be Shaman in a few weeks....

I was skilling herbalism/alchemy and fishing on my alt, Level 33 Gnome Warrior in the Barrens. Either only Shamans are allowed there anymore, or everyone has a Shaman now, because I saw no other classes at all. All Shaman.

I wore my fishing pole and had my pet White Kitten out to try to keep out of trouble. I helped all Horde I saw, and never "ninja'd" any herbs. One was skinning turtles in one of the oasis', so I just pulled a bunch over, killed and looted so they could skin. It was fun.

But do you believe 2 of them attacked me? Level 15-18 Shaman, attacking a Level 33 Warrior? I mean, we know they are play-on-easy, but sheesh, how overpowered do they think they are?

Anyway, fun experience, but it opened my eyes to what the Alliance, at least on my server will be facing in a while - armies of Shaman....

Ugg! its not that bad of a question geez...

There is a difference between Popular and Best.

Maybe someone can put a link for that WoW census website on here for the OP to look at. Shows class/race population per server.

I would honestly play the class that you think is the "coolest" for awhile, you will have fun and you will get a feel for what is needed when you play.

There are alot of rogues, warriors, and hunters, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't play them, they are still needed endgame.

Ahimsa, you have so many spelling mistakes, I wouldn't call ME the idiot.

Ahimsa < Idiot
Ahimsa < everything


I'd sugest you both just shut up...anyways back to the topic

Mages - They make the healers water, NO THEY DO NOT DPS! They make water!

Warriors - They are tanks! They do not dps! There job is to spec protection and tank!

Shaman - Your job is to heal!! and be jesus!

Paladin - YOU DO NOT DPS! you heal! You will wear cloth and heal us while we do mc!

Rogue - Go over there and sap that mob despite the fact even if you have imp sap your going to die alot.

Warlock - Soulstone the priest and summon the warrior I dont care what you do the rest of the instance.

Priest - YOU ARE NOT A MAGE YOUR JOB IS TO HEAL!!! Stop doting the damn mobs and heal us!!!

Hunter - Annoy people

Druid - Grab the flag shapeshift out of there and be restoritive speced~

/sarcasim off

just some light hearted humor :)

Isnt cheating the filter a bannable offense?

Well either way, its not the same thing, best is a matter of opinon but will most likely be "shaman" do to them being the most balanced class available atm, while the most uncommon class would be Priest I think.
In short
Best = Opinon
Popularity = player basis

So..it does make a difference glad to know your an idiot :)

No its nice to see that you cant understand that the reason I hold Highelfcleric or whats his name in contempt is not because he asked "best" or "popular". No the reason I mock and act rude is because he is the same as any number of mental deficients that come in and ask ignorant as sh[b]

Yes Ahimsa made the mistake of confusing the two originally, however her message still rings true.

I found it odd you weren't present, so I kept an extra copy of the debriefing. It should be on your desk. Beside the huge stack of porn.

Funny thing about people that bitch about useless thread is that they rarely provide useful thread themselves.

Kinda weird you'd put that in the 'useless' thread... a technical discussion about various hunter talent isn't 'as good' as somebody who want to know which class is most popular?

The whole reason i came in here was to back up the OP a bit, I can understand not wanting to play the overpopulated class. (undead rogue perhaps?) And If i knew about alla before i started WoW i probably wouldve started the same thread. I enjoy my priest and its nice to be a class thats not everywhere you look. Same reason i like to get really strange and unique pets for my hunter. Some of us like to be different.

a web search led me to this thread. today is my first day with WoW -- and i wanted to find out what most people were playing... and why. so i could better choose a class to play... one that wasn't overloaded. so, that is what good this thread is...

now, my question: if ANY 13-year old knows what good ANYTHING is, would they still have to go through puberty?
#46 Aug 09 2007 at 7:09 AM Rating: Decent
To everyone bashing the OP about popular and best, and the difference, perhaps you should notice that he said neither. In fact what he asked was what was the most populated class. hmmm.

WOW census

This lists all the realms and class/race/faction distributions. I don't think it's exact, but it should give you an idea.

edit: Ah I notice that the topic says popular. I think my point still stands as the actual question in his post was clear enough.

Perfectly reasonable question, OP, so long as you weren't planning to roll whatever "most popular" class was mentioned...not b/c rolling that class is inherently wrong, but b/c it would expose your motives.

Anywho, my non-census based opinion on class popularity depends upon server type.

PvP servers are overrun with rogues and with good reason. Ganking is way more fun when you're invisible. The world PvP ability of rogues is nearly unmatched with their suprise attacks and escapability. Of course they can be beaten, don't get me wrong, but their abilities give them excellent control over when and where they fight, a level of control that even the best players of other classes largely lack.

Hunters abound on all servers. Hunters, hunters everywhere and not a drop to drink. So to speak.

Other than that I don't see any huge class concentration one way or the other. Pallies and Shamans seem more common these days, but that's likely simply b/c they're new (to the other faction), which means that probably a few more people are rolling them, but really they're just new so you notice and remember them more.

Just wanted to note, this thread is almost two years old. Interestingly, though, I think the responses would be identical today. And I suspect the OP long ago figured out what they were after.
