Welcome to this Choosing a Class in WoW TBC Classic Guide! Burning Crusade is considered by many to be the very best WoW growth and the golden age of wow, so now we are going to be walking through a high-level overview and comparison of the nine classes in Burning Crusade that will assist you decide which class to choose. We’re also going to talk about each specialization! We put this Choosing a course in WoW TBC guide together because a lot has shifted from classic to Burning Crusade, classes have become better or worse at certain roles in PvE and PvP so we are going to walk you through a few of these changes.
TBC released by 1 June 2021 so we get everyone prepared for this amazing game. Are we going over all the classes and all the specs and their overviews of what their uses are in both PvE and PvP aspects to allow you to be more informed about what class to pick in WoW TBC Classic.
When forming this guide, we were inspired by the experience and knowledge of an expert TBC player – Toyhouze. Toyhouze Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/Toyhouze/. He has a lot of useful video guides on his channel for both young and experienced players. Be sure to watch the video on his channel to get the maximum knowledge about the game and the tips in the WoW TBC Classic.
Available races: Night Elf, Tauren.
Feral druids are excellent levelers – high damage, high sustain with the ability to heal and shift back into a cat to deal damage. Druids also got high mobility with Travel Form at level 30 increasing movement speed by 40%, in addition with Cat Form druids can use stealth to quickly complete certain quests that would take other non stealth classes much longer druids can even beat hunters to level 70 if played well, especially with leader of the pack and the health bonus. Feral swiftness is available at level 20 and 21 when you start getting cat form to just move faster. Druids have a lot in their kit to level fast, do a lot of damage. They’re really strong in dungeons.
In PvE druids have powerful utility, rebirth also known as battleres – the ability to literally bring someone back to life during combat, they also have Innervate which is a powerful mana regeneration spell. Druids are also highly mana efficient and provide healing over time spells as well as excellent raid healing. Outside of resto, Feral druids have the ability to tank dungeons and raids. We think feral druids are not only great off tanks but they’re also great main tanks especially during later Burning Crusade patches and even in classic WoW we’ve seen druid tanks do just fine. So really druid is fantastic for for tanking or deep dps.
In PvP druid is tied with shaman as best in class PvP healers. Maybe druids a little bit better, they’re close but we would say druid is more known and recognized as the best healer mainly because they’re so slippery and they do so much healing over time they can just heal and continue moving. Top that up with the addition of cyclone an incredibly powerful crowd control effect, druids are insanely powerful in PvP. When played at the highest levels druids are literally a force to be reckoned with, they are unstoppable!
So if we look at Resto – don’t level resto! In World PvP if you’re resto your gonna have trouble fighting other people, you can probably get away quite easily though. In dungeons and raids you’ll definitely be in demand like we mentioned Resto druids have some nice utility. On battlegrounds and arenas we don’t think you can find a better healer than a resto druid! Pair resto druid with an SL/SL warlock and you have one of the most infamous comps in the Burning Crusade!
Let’s look at Feral. it’s gonna be the spec you’re gonna want to level with. It is pretty great in dungeons and raids, you can have pretty much two different armor sets as a feral druid – you can do one for DPS and one for tanking, you can kind of have that multi-functionality. Druids are great tanks, they can do open world PvP. Feral is pretty strong, not the strongest but they’re strong – their damage can fall off compared to other classes so we wouldn’t say they’re S tier but you know it’s viable.
And then unfortunately we come to Balance. People don’t really expect balance to be good. It’s not great for leveling, it’s not super great for dungeons and raids, in open world PvP, battlegrounds and arenas it’s a little bit below average. We might be being too hard on the balance druid but we would say it’s very average.
Available races: Human, Dwarf, Night elf, Blood Elf, Orc, Tauren, Troll.
- Orc, Troll, Night Elf (Top PvE). Orc, Dwarf (Top PvP).
Hunters are supreme speed levellers, they excel in solo and group PvE in Burning Crusade. With an animal companion (pet) hunters can take on multiple mobs and solo group quests with ease which other classes simply can’t do. In addition hunters have solid sustainable DPS, top it all off with high mobility with Aspect of the Cheetah and Aspect of the Pack as well as Bestial Swiftness for their pet – that makes Hunters our top tier Levellers and they can get to max level smoothly and easily.
Hunters perform quite well in world PvP because of their mobility and their pets, so they won’t get ganked too often and in fact they are skilled gankers if they can get the jump on their prey. The big change from Classic to Burning Crusade with hunters is that they’re incredible in PvE. They can absolutely be at the top of the damage meters especially in later TBC. What’s nice is Thori’dal the Stars’ Fury is an endgame legendary weapon for hunters and if they get it they are going to inspire awe on the damage meters.
In PvP with the 8-yard dead zone that doesn’t get removed till a little bit later in the Burning Crusade hunters don’t perform as well as other classes. That’s not to say that a skilled hunter can’t perform at the highest levels of PvP. If you get the scorpion pet and you’re amazing at keeping Line of Sight and range from your opponent you can absolutely do it – it’s just harder compared to other classes. Hunter skill ceiling is huge just like in Vanilla. That sums up PvP for Hunters. If you rolled Hunter in Classic and felt that you had trouble finding raid groups or maxing out your damage meters then in Burning Crusade you can roll hunter if you want an easy leveling experience and want to experience endgame raid content as a class that is easy to play yet difficult to master.
Analyzing specs let’s first talk about Beast mastery. This is the go-to leveling spec, it’s also the go-to dungeon and raiding spec. It’s not as good in open world PvP and battlegrounds and arenas, though. Beast mastery is great because it has the one button macro rotation – it’s essentially steady shot + kill command – you just push this one button and you do ridiculous damage. Beast mastery is pretty much the spec that you’re going to want to go if you want to raid.
There are some people who argue that you can also go Marksmanship but the data suggests that marksmanship is just cannot keep up – we’ve heard some people say that it’s just as good as BM, some people say that Trueshot aura does not scale. We think that marksmanship is not quite as good as Beast Mastery. Leveling speed a little bit slower, it’s a little bit more gear dependant if you’re not going Beast Mastery. However Marksmanship is definitely good in open world PvP, battlegrounds and arenas.
The last spec, Survival, a little bit even slower to level than other two specs. In dungeons and raids you really only want one survival hunter for expose weakness. You’re not going to want any more than that so it’s gonna be hard to find raid spot if you’re survival – each raid will only want one at the most and then they’re not the greatest in PvP or battlegrounds and arenas. Yes, Wyvern Sting is pretty good and if you’re good enough you can really make anything happen but it’s not really a top spec.
Available races: Dwarf, Gnome, Human, Night Elf, Blood Elf, Undead, Orc, Troll.
- Orc, Human (Top PvE). Undead, Gnome (Top PvP).
Rogue is not the fastest leveling class because they lack sustain but they’re faster than warriors or paladins because they have some nice utility spells like Stealth, Vanish, Sprint, Blind, Evasion, Sap, Riposte – it really helps their sustainability and they can also maneuver tricky quests and avoid sticky situations and certain deaths.
In PvE. At the beginning there might be of a lot of hate towards rogues in PvE that they’re weak and underpowered, and they struggle from this melee DPS mechanic problem, however late-game they do pick up Warglaives of Azzinoth, ofcourse this is a stretch but once they get Warglaives they’re very good. Rogues also need a lot of haste to be viable, and with great gear they get pretty good in raids but we have heard opinions that you don’t want to main a rogue, though it’s okay to roll rogue for PvE if it’s not your main class.
In PvP they’re a great class and they work in a lot of different compositions – in example RMP or RLS. They’re pretty great in PvP, they’ve always kind of historically been good in PvP at a very high level so if you want to PvP seriously rogue is a great choice.
Let’s talk about rogue specializations. Assassination, we would say is probably middle-of-the-road or not their best specialization, it’s not great at pretty much anything but you know it’s gonna work for open world PvP, battlegrounds and arenas. It’s not the greatest for PvE and leveling either.
Combat is a little more middle-of-the-road, it’s gonna be the specialization you run for dungeons and raids, and also while you level. Combat is not good for PvP.
Subtlety this is the PvP spec that you’re going to want to go. It’s the go-to spec for rogues for any PvP action. This is not the spec for PvE and it’s okay for leveling but subtlety is definitely the spec for PvP so check that out if you want to be a PvP rogue.
Available races: Draenei, Orc, Tauren, Troll.
- Orc (Top PvE). Orc (Top PvP).
Shaman is pretty awesome and we’d like to say that their leveling has gotten a bit faster from Classic with the introduction of a new enhancement talent known as Shamanistic Focus – after you get a critical strike it makes the shamans next shot cost 60% less mana and if you’ve leveled a shaman before you know that mana efficiency is the name of the game for leveling. Restorations are in high demand for PvE. When it comes to dungeons and raids Shamans are a must-have for their utility with Bloodlust added to the game, totems and Restoration’s beastly amount of healing
In PvP Battlegrounds and arenas shaman is a top tier healer. If you want to aim for Gladiator having a Shaman healer will help your odds tremendously with grounding totem, tremor totem and especially windfury totem as well as bloodlust. Their really great chain heals reign supreme in arenas and battlegrounds in the Burning Crusade.
Now we want to talk specifically about some of Shaman’s specializations because not all of them are created equally. Elemental is kind of average or even below average, kind of not the best spec and again you know there’s always exceptions to these but Elemental is not the greatest spec for shamans and neither is Enhancement so you wouldn’t really want to level as Elemental shaman. You could, it just might not be the best – you’d probably want to level as enhancement, like we said for that Shamanistic Focus talent QoL, but Enhancement isn’t the greatest for dungeons and raids. It’s kind of lacking in DPS, and then in open world PvP, battlegrounds and arenas it’s a little below average. You could probably find a niche comp where you run an arms warrior and Enhancement shaman and just try to windfury everyone down. It could work totally but we think it’s a unique scenario, not everyone’s gonna be able to pull that off.
Restoration is by far the best talent tree to go. It’s Shamans’ best specialization to go, obviously you don’t want to level as resto, it’s gonna be super slow but resto does great in dungeons and raids, open world PvP. If you want to 1v1 someone obviously resto’s not the greatest but then in battlegrounds in arenas you’re gonna do fantastic so we’d highly recommend a restoration spec if you’re going to roll a shaman in the Burning Crusade.
Available races: Gnome, Human, Blood Elf, Orc, Undead.
- Orc, Gnome (Top PvE). Orc, Undead, Gnome (Top PvP).
Warlock is a class with high sustain and solid damage output. It makes them one of the fastest and easiest classes to level, it’s always fun having a demonic ally to tank and help DPS mobs down, relax and have a really smooth ride to max level. It’s really easy, the reason we would say they’re not the fastest to level is because they have no movement speed increasing abilities, they don’t have Aspect of the Cheetah, they really don’t have anything for speed but they do get a free mount at level 40 which helps a little bit. It’s not totally free ofcourse, it’s like 40 silver maybe to learn the riding ability.
In PvE, like in classic, warlocks are amazing, they have even greater utility with Soul Wells , soulstones and they have jaw-dropping damage. Warlocks have an easy time topping out the damage meters in Burning Crusade so finding a raiding guild will not be hard. Warlocks received some nice talent tree buffs with Fel Intellect and Fel Stamina also increasing the warlocks maximum health and mana in addition to their normal demon buffs.
When it comes to open world PvP warlocks are definitely some of the best duelers, while leveling it’s still hard to gank a warlock because of Voidwalker sacrifice; it is possible but it’s gonna be pretty tough. At max level we would say a warlock can probably take on any class if played correctly because of Soul Link. In battlegrounds and arenas warlocks are top tier! SL/SL warlock is considered by many the most OP class specialization in Burning Crusade whatsoever and with the support from a healer like a shaman or a druid which is considered by many the best healer and the crowd control from a rogue these three form one of the strongest arena teams known as RLS, so choose a druid teammate and your odds of becoming gladiator are super high.
We want to talk a little bit about each of the warlocks’ three specializations so you can kind of gauge what each one is used for. Affliction is great for leveling, it’s great for dungeons and raids. This is a bit of a change from vanilla wow, you’ll be running affliction until tier 4 when you have enough hit rating. It’s also great for open world PvP and of course battlegrounds and arenas, we’re considering Affliction to kind of be SL/SL and you’re probably going to stay affliction for quite a long time for both pvp and PVE in the Burning Crusade.
However Demonology is actually pretty good especially from levels like 50-something onward when you get the Felguard. You can kind of play a little bit like a hunter, have the Felguard tank for you, it does good damage too. Demonology is gonna be it’s exactly like a BM Hunter as you level demonology but it really lacks in dungeons and raids. Some people have said it’s possible to play Demonology in dungeons and raids but seems like it’s just too much trouble than what it’s worth, we wouldn’t recommend it. In open world PvP while you’re leveling it’s gonna be pretty good, especially when nobody has gear and you have a Felguard out it’s gonna be pretty strong. In battlegrounds in arenas it’s totally viable – Demonology Soul Link is super strong, the Felguard is super strong but again as more time goes on and people get more gear pets in general are just going to scale worse.
The last specialization, Destruction, not the best at leveling, we wouldn’t recommend leveling in destruction however destruction is number one choice for warlocks when raiding when they’ve got that Tier 4 to tier 5 gear. It’s gonna outperform affliction, you might have one affliction warlock for some of those talents in the affliction tree for raid utility – improved curses or things like that but destruction is just going to do more damage so ultimately you’re gonna want to switch to destruction and there’s two different destruction builds there – Shadowflame and pure shadow. We think pure shadow performs better than shadowflame just because of some of the gear that’s available and the stats on it. In open world PvP destruction is a little bit weaker than the other two specializations, there are some nice talents in it but generally it’s considered a little bit weaker.
Available races: Human, Draenei, Dwarf, Blood Elf.
- Human, Draenei (Top PvE). Dwarf (Top PvP).
Paladin is one of the most flavorful classes in the Burning Crusade, however they are a little bit more middle-of-the-road if you just round them all out. In the Burning Crusade paladins can be played by Humans, Dwarves, Draenei and Blood Elves. Paladins received some nice buffs from classics – TBC blessing of might now increases ranged attack, power improved righteous fury now grants reduced damage taken by 2/4/6% per talent point and other proc related buffs. In addition there is a horde only seal known as Seal of Blood. This seal made paladins take 10% of the damage they deal back to themselves, it was actually effective at breaking CC so that makes them pretty good in PvP.
in terms of leveling paladins are pretty slow with only a few active abilities. Most of the time paladins are just autoattacking waiting for a Seal of Command proc so it’s kind of boring. Paladins don’t die as much as warriors because they have Divine Shield, Blessing of Protection and Lay on Hands so they are a bit faster than warriors, but only because they can solo quests that Warriors wouldn’t be able to. They can also self heal which is nice, bubble hearthstone is still great for avoiding getting ganked, however in TBC it is no longer unbeatable as Mass Dispel has been added to the game for priests and that can remove divine protection.
In PvE paladins offer the best buffs in the game such as Blessing of Kings, Might, Salvation, Wisdom and so on. They also have anti wipe utility known as divine intervention or DI , sacrificing themselves to make a target immune to all damage. In TBC protection paladins are viable tanks – they’re especially good at AOE tanking. In terms of best tanks we’d say they are some of the top tier especially later in TBC. Holy paladins specialize in single target healing and will usually be assigned to heal a single target like the main tank or off tank. Retribution paladins don’t do the greatest damage, especially if they’re Alliance because they don’t have Seal of Blood which blood elf paladins have so Alliance retribution paladins kind of fall behind.
In PvP the story is similar – paladins perform about average, Ret paladins in pvp aren’t that great unless horde and even then they’re a little bit above average due to Blessing of Freedom, they have Repentance and Hand of Justice as a gap closer. Hand of Justice – if you judge someone it makes it so that they have to move at normal movement speed and then with Pursuit of Justice paladins passively move 15% faster so that’s really their only gap closer. They don’t have a real slowing ability, it’s super frustrating to be a ret paladin just trying to chase a hunter or some other mobile class down, it can be pretty hard to close the gap. Holy paladin’s are fine healers, but with druid, shaman and priest utility paladins aren’t really the greatest in PvP especially in 2v2 and 3v3, but in 5v5 it’s actually a different story. In 5s Holy paladins can do much better and it’s actually a niche where they’re in demand so if you’re a holy paladin wanting to get into pvp look for a 5s team.
Let’s talk a little bit about Holy. Like we said on battlegrounds and arenas they’re actually pretty good, in open world PvP if you’re a healer all you can kind of do is run around. For leveling you don’t want to level in holy, and PvE dungeons and raids Holy is totally fine. You’ll probably will not have trouble at all finding groups especially for your buffs and your healing.
Protection is a really great specialization to run, they’re great for AoE tanking and in later tiers in later patches in the Burning Crusade you know once they get geared protection paladin’s are actually really great tanks so that that is a little tidbit for you if you want to be an amazing tank definitely consider running paladin! We obviously don’t recommend to level in protection, you’re not the greatest in PvP as protection either so keep that in mind.
And then for Retribution this is the spec you’ll probably be leveling in. It is not the greatest in dungeons and raids, but they’re there okay, in open world PvP they’re okay, on battlegrounds and arenas they’re kind of average so retribution is just kind of like an average specialization. It’s kind of hard to do very well as a retribution paladin.
Available races: Draenei, Dwarf, Human, Night Elf, Undead, Blood Elf, Troll.
- Troll, Dwarf, Draenei (Top PvE). Undead, Dwarf (Top PvP).
Priest are not the quickest levellers. Shadow priests have high sustain by dotting, mind flaying and finishing off mobs by wanding them down and they get that mana regeneration going again with Spirit Tap with the five-second rule which applies to mana regeneration. It prevents your character’s mana from regenerating five seconds after casting a spell so you’re gonna want to finish a fight with a wand. It’ll be the most efficient way to level and that is true for all spell casters or really anyone who’s trying to be mana efficient. This way of leveling makes priests one of the faster levellers, not among the very fastest due to low mobility. Priests are not the slowest and have a very consistent pace to level to 70.
We highly recommend everyone to get the Gravestone Scepter as soon as you can which I believe is level 18, run BFD or have someone run you through it and you’re gonna have a great time because that one is incredible and pair that with one specialization which is going to increase its damage by 25% and you’re gonna have a real fun time playing priest. You’re just gonna put on a shield and wand stuff down. You shouldn’t even cast spells, it’s super fun, so priests are really pretty good at leveling!
In PVE priests are great versatile healers with good single target and party healing due to the addition of Circle of Healing as the 41st talent and the holy tree priests are better equipped for raid healing. Priests also have some good healing overtime spells and powerful damage shields – this kit makes priests great healers in PvE. In addition to great heals they have utilities such as stamina and spirit buffs as well as fear ward. And what’s really cool about the Burning Crusade is that fear ward is going to be available to all priests at level 20 as of Burning Crusade patch 2.3. This patch is one of the last few patches in Burning Crusade so keep that in mind. Before patch 2.3 only draenei and dwarf priests will have fear ward, priests all have their racial abilities, fear ward is one of those so what’s gonna be cool is Draenei is gonna be one of those classes that can can have that. Shadow priests are actually in super high demand in the Burning Crusade, this is different from Classic vanilla WoW where they’re not in super demand, but basically the mana issue has been solved and not only has it been solved but now shadow priests are literally mana batteries for the raid because of their new spell/talent at the end of the Shadow tree so basically anyone in the Shadow Priests’ group is gonna regenerate mana based off shadow damage dealt by the shadow priest! And because it only works on party members it wasn’t uncommon to bring multiple shadow priests to the raid.
Shadow is super viable when it comes to open world PvP, shadow priests are known as face melters – they can just face melt people if you run into one while leveling I think you’re gonna be surprised at the damage they can do. They can definitely defeat most classes in world PvP. In battlegrounds and arenas priests are a solid choice with spells like mana burn, pain suppression and offensive dispels including Mass dispel which will remove paladins’ Divine Protection. Priests have great utility to dominate all arena brackets, add in the fact of their spells can rack up serious damage as any spec, priests are a great partner for arena so if you want a well-rounded class that can do it all, priests will not let you down.
If we look at Holy you’re not gonna want to level with it. It’s not the greatest in open world PvP but it’s great for dungeons and raids, kind of middle-of-the-road four battlegrounds and arenas.
If we look at Discipline it’s a little bit faster at leveling, again you’re probably not gonna want to level as discipline. It does pretty well in dungeons and raids but it’s really going to shine in battlegrounds in arenas. This is sort of the specialization you go for that Pain Suppression – that’s a damage mitigation ability, mana burns also do some decent damage. Disc priest is really the way to go for PvP.
Then Shadow it’s how you level quickly and smoothly. They’re like we said in demand in dungeons and raids which is fantastic, you’re never gonna have a hard time finding a dungeon or raid as a shadow priest unlike in classic. Open world PvP they’re strong, in battlegrounds and arenas not as good as the disc but you’d be surprised Shadow Priests can definitely do just fine in the right niche team.
Available races: Draenei, Gnome, Human, Blood Elf, Troll, Undead.
- Troll, Gnome (Top PvE). Undead, Gnome (Top PvP).
Mage is a class with high damage and endless amounts of food and water. Mages can level at a consistent pace, this does come at a cost of consistent downtime, however while Mages don’t have move speed increases they can teleport and create portals to all major cities for themselves and party or raid members! When it comes to dungeons and raids mages offer high single target and AoE damage as well as utility such as sheep, arcane intelligence and Frost Nova.
The two specializations that are really viable in the Burning Crusade for PvE are Fire and Arcane, however Fire is considered the better of the two but both are considered viable.
In open world PvP mages can hold their own, mages are good at getting away with polymorph, blink and lots of slows and freezing spells. Mages can usually outkite and outmaneuver most classes in a 1v1 setting. In battlegrounds and arenas Mages’ ability to crowd control while dealing lots of damage makes them fierce competitors. RMP – rogue mage priest is definitely one of the more notorious team comps, it was introduced in the Burning Crusade and throughout most of WoW history RMP has been a top arena composition.
So if we look at Frost this is probably the spec you’re going to want to level with, while Fire may kill things faster if you aggro too many mobs you’re a bit vulnerable. Frost is gonna give you those slowing effects, it does great damage and it’s also fantastic for PvP battlegrounds and arenas. So frost is kind of leveling and PvP spec. For PvE we highly recommend you – do not go frost, it’s not as great for dungeons and raids, it’s gonna fall behind in terms of damage,
However you are going to want to go Fire for dungeons and raids. It’s really the go-to spec, but you’re not gonna want to level as Fire, you’re not going to want to PvP as Fire – it’s just not as good.
For Arcane you’re not gonna want to really level as arcane, it’s okay for dungeons and raids, and mediocre for PvP.
Available races: All except Blood Elf.
- Orc, Human, Draenei (Top PvE). Orc, Gnome (Top PvP)
In PvP warriors are definitely one of the better classes. There were some talent tree rearrangements that helped Warriors: the detachment of Rend from Deep Wounds and Impale – in Vanilla Warriors needed to get Improved Rend in order to get Deep Wounds and Impale, and now Warriors don’t need to do that so they’re getting three points back to spend that in another area. Not only that but Improved Intercept and Death Wish were both moved into the Arms tree.
When it comes to PvE all specializations are viable. Protection warriors are proven tanks and are definitely a top choice for main tanking. Arms also can perform quite well in the Burning Crusade, especially now that both factions have the Shaman Windfury totem. As a reminder Shattering Throw was not added into the game until Wrath of the Lich King so warriors can’t break divine shield like priests can which is pretty awesome new ability for them. Another downside of warriors is that they’re really slow to level, just like in Vanilla they’ve got high gear dependence, especially when it comes to weapons, and they have a hard time doing some of the more difficult quests. Taking on more than one mob at a time as a warrior can be a challenge and you’re usually gonna die if that happens, top that off with low mobility and that brings warriors to the hardest and slowest class to level. Many argue that Warriors were overpowered in the Burning Crusade and it has some merit. Warriors are a great choice for both PvE and PvP If you can grind your warrior to 70.
Now we want to talk a little bit about the Fury specialization. Fury is pretty good! Obviously as Protection you’re gonna have an easier time finding a group while Fury and all melee dps classes in the Burning Crusade have a little bit of a harder time in dungeons and raids because melee dps just have a harder time. Their effects and different boss mechanics will make it hard to be a good melee dps, however fury is fantastic for DPSing in PvP and is certainly viable overall!
Protection is going to be the spec where you’re gonna be in most demand. Warriors are great single target tanks! Obviously you do not want to level as protection – it will be very slow and very painful, in open world PvP you can’t gank very well as protection and you’re vulnerable. In Arena there is not too many comps – there might be one where there’s a protection paladin and a protection warrior but that’s kind of niche and it’s not very common and you’re probably gonna have to be pretty good to make it work. So overall protection is more of a dungeon and raid specialization.
Then we have Arms spec. Arms is definitely the go-to for PvP, they’re great in battlegrounds and arenas, they’re great in open world PvP. In dungeons and raids they’re also great, however keep in mind that Arms are melee DPS and they struggle like all the other melee DPS classes in the Burning Crusade and like all other warrior specializations they’re pretty slow to level.
Leveling speed by Class
Here is our leveling speed graph by class – you can take a look at it. We would say hunters are the fastest. then druids, warlocks, mages, priests, shaman, rogue, paladin, and at last we have the warrior.
We really hope that you learned something from this guide and you got closer to choosing your main character for the Burning Crusade! We had an absolute blast putting this together learning about the Burning Crusade! We played it back in the day but you know as time has gone by people on private servers have refined strategies and classes have revealed themselves to be better or worse.
TBC DPS Ranking by Class
Here you can find the DPS rankings for World of Warcraft TBC. These rankings are based upon in game data recordings from multiple raids and old logs.
