Arms/Fury Warrior, Shadow Priest, or Combat/Subtlety Rogue?

Basically just like the subject says, which class do you like the best? Warrior, Priest, or Rogue? I have one of each at level 49, and I want to make one my main, but I don't know which one I should commit. - My Warrior is currently a fury spec, but I'd be willing to change it arms (and I'd probably witch to protection once I hit 80). - My Priest is currently a shadow spec, but I'd probably switch to holy once I hit 80. - My Rogue is currently a subtlety spec, but I'd be willing to change it to combat. So basically, pick one and if you pick the warrior or rogue, pick either arms/fury or combat/subtlety. Please reply to this thread with some points on why you picked a class over another, and what kind of spell orders I should use to be the most efficient.

    Rogue. Warrior is boring. Priest would be second choice, but I'm not the healer type.

    Though to stay on topic Priest would have to be my favorite out of those three. Rouge gets boring just like Warrior

    If you're a warrior, everyone expects you to tank. Priest, to heal. Rogues are for DPS and some CC and everyone knows it.

    That being said, good tanks and healers are hard to find - fill these roles and you can pug instances easily. But you'll have a harder time in PvE instances as a warrior/priest if you do a spec outside these roles. And very rarely does anyone request a rogue for a pug. Unless they need you to open a door.

    I, personally, chose rogue when I used to play. I love stealth too much. But I was also the one who taught all the instances to everyone in the guild, so I never lacked for a group. ;)

    Warrior. Everyone will want you and isn't as hard to level as the others.

    Really, it all depends on whether you want to tank, heal or dps. All 3 of those classes are good for that. I'd pick either the priest or warrior in case you don't like healing or tanking and just want to dps instead since both classes have that flexibility while a rogue can only do damage.

    Yeah I switched him to fury for a little, but then to arms and now he's protection.

    I leveled fast with fury though, it was the best for DPS.

    But for now I'm going to make my priest a holy priest, my warrior a protection warrior, and my rogue I'll keep at combat and make him my main for right now.

    Once I hit 80 (It'll take a while, I'm only at 58 now), I'll have to choose between the two, depending on if I want to tank or heal in a raid (when I'm not using my rogue).

    Keep your warrior fury, then go prot at 80
    arms isn't that good unless you want to solo from 70 to 80

    holy priest>shadow priest
    IMO
    i love holy SOOO much.
    but shadow is obviously better

    Nice dude, if I was to tell you what character to play it would have been the priest. Cause rogues IMO are complete shit. They cant pve and their pvp is ok... nothing great though. But DK is a good choice. I have a DK as my main (80 of course) and I absolutely love him.

    I personally would pick the shadow priest, mainly because I have one and I absolutely love it. They're good for grinding, good for doing damage, they can keep enemies at bay and can still heal themselves if they get it trouble. As for moneymaking, that's not hard either, just pick your professions right.

    I tried warhammer online and was extremely pumped for it before it's released.

    I was dissapointed by it though, the lack of engagement is horrendous.

    And the lack of end-game material is off-putting as well

    Fail..total fail. Rogue combat...fail..

    Mutilate is the new best spec for rogues. Blizzard want rogues to get back to what they invisoned the perfect rogue weapons and build and they made it mutilate..thus you need daggers. Fuck all the other skills, just spam of 2 mutilates if you dont have 5 combat points hit a shiv and eviscreate, if the mobs inst dead by then keep going.

    Oh and btw for you haters out there who think mutliate is bad, try droping a lvl 80 mob in 3 seconds flat. OR killing a horde player in less then 5 when he knows your there and you only have 2k health left.

    Mutilate is op, rogues are so fun and fast to level.

    It depends on how you like to play, I'd say rogue, because you can just be a gankng bastard.

    Plus as rogue you will always be DPS, if you're a warrior you'll be pressured into tanking, and if you're a priest you'll be pressured into healing.

    When I played my main was a warrior, I had both rogue and priest alts, rogue was mainly PvP and Priest PvE, so its up to you what you want to do, deal melee damage, or deal ranged damage or heal, I suggest heal and joining a proper raiding guild.

    But thats just my opinion, the choice is all yours :)

    I haven't done VH that much, so I wouldn't really know what you're talking about. I've seen some pretty decent looking polearms though. Who am I kidding? Pretty decent? THEY'RE AWESOME.
