So, I used to play World of Warcraft during Warlords of Draenor. I was an Orc. Most of the top PvP players played as Humans. Humans had a trait that gave them a free escape from Crowd Control every two minutes. Other races had to use a trinket for that, so in effect, Humans got a free trinket. Other races had other traits tho, so in theory if those traits were equal to a different trinket, it all balanced out. I didn’t mind. I was never going to be a top PvP player, and I preferred to play the race and class I liked.
This game is not an RPG. The classes are not designed to all be equal. I have seen Tier lists for Mythic and Legendary Troops, and also lists of the best Weapons and Troops Epic/below. I would be interested in seeing a list of the best Classes.
I have four at 100: When I returned from a break, Warden was already completed based upon previous gameplay. (Warlord was and is still at 76). I got Dragonguard to 100 because I thought I was Dragonborne, and because I liked the banishment at level 70 for Invasions. When Thief was introduced, I switched to that for PvP. And Titan made Raids, and later Delves, easier.
This past GW, a mate suggested I try Hierophant. Fey? Really? I already got Frostmage to 71. Again, this isn’t an RPG, I should let it go. But if someone were to make a list, top 10, bottom 10, and middle 14, where would the Barbarian Orc class rank? 30th?
Archer is a solid class. 15% chance for lethal skull dmg. Chance to summon Bandits and Hieronaths. I have that at 80. Solid, and it might be the worst Elf class in the game.
Orbweaver has its uses on Defense. Allegedly. Even without LnD, its Spider spawns can be a nuisance with the webs inflicted on enemies. Not to top players, obviously, but you get my meaning. I have that at 92, so eventually it’ll get Rising Shadows.
I’m liking the Monk class, but at 54, I still have a way to go to unlock its full potential. Archmagus is a Mystic, but since its from Silverglade, I consider it almost half-Elf in nature.
Plaguelord is nearing completion at 94. Sentinel at 74 needs some attention. And Sunspear is at 72. After those, I’ve only been working on classes to unlock the weapons and various kingdom levels. I would think Runepriest would be a good class to work on, if I had the time. And I’ve seen Bard get some use.
I know my brother gets tired of my rants against Elves, Fey, and Blue mana users. And he’s my brother, so I can understand why my antics may get tiresome to others as well. The Devs would probably say “Our data shows most of our players prefer to play as Elves or Fey. Therefore, we have made them more powerful than the other races. If you prefer to have Orcs moar powerful, design your own game.” I lack the talent to do that. I am pretty skilled at complaining tho.
I do have Barbarian at 54. I’ll get it to 100 eventually, once I have all the essential GW classes done. Including Hierophant. Grrr.
Thanks for letting me share. And if anyone wants to make a Tier List for Classes, I promise not to hijack it with my rants. For the Horde
