Please help me choose a Plate class to level purely via PvP
Return to board index
I need some help on making a decision I seem unable to make on my own.
My aim is to level 1 class entirely through PvP with the aim to farm herbs/ore while waiting for the queue to finance my hunger for War.
I aim to do this using a Plate class and from level 10+ if possible but may consider DK if people feel they are the most viable in High level PvP.
First let me give a bit of info about me which may help you advise me better. I am an old skool wow player. I played from Vanilla until the end of WOTLK without raiding or doing any end game content or PvE other than quests. I have never raided I have done maybe 4 heroic 5 mans and I really don’t see the fun in PvE at all as I get my kicks from killing players not pixels. I quit wow at the end of WOTLK due to the fact I felt PvP in WoW was broken. I’ve PvP’d as casters melee and healers in the past and out of all the PvP classes I’ve played I enjoyed the Warrior and Shadow Priest the most. I’m not afraid of getting my behind kicked while I grind new gear and learn my skills to pay ze bills.
I have only recently returned to wow after a long break and in the short time I have been back I’ve been playing as a Monk while I level but I just can’t seem to settle with him. It doesn’t feel right. I tried to return as a PvE player but at level 76 I’m just bored of questing and LFD both as Windwalker and Mistweaver. I was speaking to a friend who states that PvP is in the best state it’s been in an age and urges me to get back to my PvP ways. I have no desire to go back to PvP as a monk. I want to return to PvP and do it from as early a level as possible. I don’t care long it takes to level I just want to do it all via PvP if I can avoiding quests and 5 man’s entirely and if I get to 90 and feel like I’ll try the PvE so be it but I just want a toon I can log onto and join BG’s and have fun.
I always loved World PvP and BG’s both rated and normal. Arena is great but for me joining a Rated RBG team is my top priority. Arena comes second but I do intend to do it.
Fortunately for me I have quite a few BOA’s that are plate from back when I used to play. I’m missing a few bits like a 2h weapon and the pants but I can get those quite quickly by using my monk I’m sure if you guys think it’s crucial however I’m confident I can find good enough Blues and purples on AH if needed.
I want to roll a plate class and I want to know which you guys feel is the best class and spec to do this. It’s important you consider that this isn’t only for end game PvP but for levelling through the lower brackets also and that you also take into account I wish to be spending most of my time at max level doing rated BG’s and even PUG BG’s when I must.
So in short I need a few questions answered.
Which Plate Class would be best for levelling via PvP and why? (Oh and race if possible..I’m Horde for Life BTW)
Which Spec within the class would be most suitable?
Do I need to continue with my monk to get the BOA Legs and 2h Sword/Axe before I begin this task or should I be ok buying a 2h Blue/Purple weapon/pants every few levels?
Am I insane for even considering this in the first place?
Thanks in advance for any reply. I’ll try check in on this thread as much as possible.
FOR THE HORDE
EDIT * Forgot to mention Im on a new Server so thats why Im starting again. Im willing to pay to transfer a toon from my old server with the BOA's in his inventory but due to the amount of time I've been away I really want to start a class again from scratch to learn the class again from the begining.
Paladins are fun in pvp and have great survivability, holy/ret is what I would go. I would buy the BoA because usually you get destroyed if you dont have BoA. If you go holy I would pick blood elf for the arcane torrent mana regen, If you go ret I would go Tauren for the stun and increased health. Hope this helps!
Thanks its helps. I made the same post on another site and the response i got was the same apart from one worrying theme. Rated BG teams dont take any melee other than DK's. Its a bit of blow to find this out. I'm going to try the DK tonight see if like the play style if not i think i'll go Ret.
I've been on a very similar journey. I don't enjoy the endgame and prefer PvP, or leveling up toons of all classes. I rolled a Tauren Ret Pally to see if I could level up through just PvP. He's at level 32 now and is decked up with BoA gear and those acquired from the vendor in Northern Barrens. Having a lot of fun, but the grind is slower than I thought.
