    The power of Azaroth's elements is a part of the Shaman's arsenal. This WOW class can provide healing to party members when needed and use elemental magic to attack foes from a safe distance.

    Various demons are under the control of any warlock. These demons can act as tanks, healers, and disrupters. Warlocks can also unleash massive damages against a single target from a distance.

    The heavy-armored Paladins wield light magic to provide healing and buffs among party members. Paladin's high HP and damage reduction allow the class to heal allies while taking the brunt of enemies' attacks.

    Druids take their power from the earth and fulfill a variety of roles. Players using this class can become tanks when they use the shapeshift ability or regenerate their allies' health while on the battlefield.

    "when it comes to versatile classes, druids defintily come to mind. They got good dps and hp. at the same time, that also makes them somewhat boring to play as."

    WOW's martial artists can rain down a series of attacks against a group of enemy and achieve high damage rate to a single foe. Monk's abilities make them incredibly mobile, which it easy for the class to avoid enemy attacks.

    "Out of the classes for wow I would use in arena or PVP, id pick monk or hunter. Brewmonks are super broken when taking out one target. They are just not good with dealing crowds."

    Hunters are range specialists in WOW that can deliver a strong attack from a safe distance. This class can also tame and utilize different pets that can increase the damage output of a player.

    Warriors can achieve high burst damage and cleave attacks that target multiple enemies. Their taunt ability can draw damage away from their allies while their high HP allows them to withstand strong attacks.

    "Honestly thought this was going to be an easy class to use. Turns out they can be challenging for new players to get used to. Good thing I have the patience to stick with my character. Fury warrior turns out to be the best dps class on wow for me."
