Which DPS Alt should I create...

Postby sherck » Thu Apr 07, 2011 10:49 am

I have always played a healer; I will always be a healer at heart. It is my "first love" of this game.

I have dabbled with tanking on my bear and Paladin and feel like I can become a "good" tank but it will never be my first love.

My Druid is the first toon that, while a healer first, I plan on working on his Boomkin kit hard enough that he is a raid viable DPS option. This will be my first max-level DPS spec but...he will be a healer first and foremost.

I am going to level a Shaman because I have the crazy concept that I want one of each of the four healing classes at max level. Don't ask me why because I am not sure I can articulate it.

However, I want to try a toon that would purely be DPS with no tanking or healing. Not to say that it cannot be a class that COULD tank (Warrior, DK), but I have no plan to ever take him tanking.

So, what class should I make as this "pure" DPS class? Which is, in your opinion, the most fun!

Cheers,
sherck

Troll - Frost - Dual Wield - Death Knight.

Why? Because they are the best alt to have.

This, assuming you are good working in melee range.

I have a method that is just as effective as polling all of us:

Male Worgen Rogues have pretty awesome stealth animations.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

1.) it is a rogue.
2.) it is alliance.
3.) it is worgen.

and therefore, it is not good. :lol:

for the same reason i am getting max level toons of all 4 tanking classes...
its something you love to do, and you want to expirience it in every way possible


i love the dynamic changes that my brain goes through when switching from a tank shield to my DK or bear
its different ways of thinking, of doing pulls, of if i do this, this will happen to these mobs

i like healing and im a decent healer, but i will always love tanking


oh and on topic: i would second the male worgen rogue, i love mine, but since you are horde....
female belf warrior?
but only if you go fury..
just the thought of a scrawny chick getting pissed off enough to pick up 2hd weapons and beating the crap out of something with them is just hilarious to me

Rogue, Mage, Warlock, or Hunter.

That way you can rest-assured you will never, ever, be called on to tank or heal.

I think you'll find the obvious answer is warrior or dk so that you can tank in order to get a goodie bag. ;)

Firecracker, umh, I mean Fire mage, or Beast Master.

I love my tankadin, and to a slightly lesser degree my restodrood, but when I want to have unadultered fun, I either go on my 85 Firecracker or my midlevel hunter to rip everything in my path to shreds :P

I made a mage alt a while back and he's a ton of fun. I leveled as Frost and as soon as I feel my crit supports it I'll swap over to a fire spec. It's fairly engaging but not as complicated as tanking or healing.

I would NOT pick warrior or DK simply because you stated you want "PURE" dps, and you can't have that with those classes usually because people will ALWAYS pester you to tank..

I love the cata changes to hunters and warlocks for leveling.. personally I like the warlock more.
