Pally or Shaman?
Return to board index
hi, im bored of my current characters, and want to try a new one. i've narrowed down my choices to a new paladin or a new shaman. So to help me decide, i'd like those of you who are experienced in BOTH classes, to tell me which is more fun.
thats right, im asking for players' opinions on what class is FUN to play.
an armory link would help, just to make sure i know that u know what ur talking about.
there is an identical post on the shaman forums.
I leveled a paladin to 70 and so far my highest level shaman is 39. So far, I'd say shamans are much more fun mainly because they can do much better DPS.
Edit: Don't get me wrong, I enjoy my pally, she's just a Healadin now. =)

I think it depends on what you want. If you want a really good pvp melee class, go Pali. If you want good caster and off healing dps, go sham. Paladin pride is in their PVP abilities, the only problem with them is getting the gear to make them fun. They are THE most gear dependent pvp toons, so if you don't want to put in a lot of time getting gear, you may want to roll a sham.
But, I will say, the paladin specialty is being able to run down mounted toons on foot. That has to be THE most fun thing to do with any toon I've played so far. Ret pali pvp is a force to be reckoned with. You can't slow em down, and just when you thought you got em, they bubble and pown you with a crazy crit. 15% all the time run speed increase, and 20% mounted increase, BoF, and an almost impenetrable bubble, there are very few classes that can take a ret pali...
after all the feedback i got on both posts, i decided to roll a paladin. he'll be my first plate wearer and my first (good) healer.
ty for all the help =D
