Re: [Poll] First to MoP

Always had a comparatively large Shaman community here. It's interesting.

You're missing the most important class - monk

Actually intentionally omitted.

I'm interested in seeing what specs people are viewing as fun, and or powerful.

There's entirely too much unknown about the monk, on top of the number of people that will be taking monk purely because it's new - the above would skew the results I'm interested in.

I picked demonology warlock because that will be the easiest to level. As far as what spec will I play @90, that will depend on which spec will have the highest potential DPS output in the current content as I am sure will be the case with all the other min/max'ers out there. So IMO your poll is kind of pointless, unless you just want to see what classes will be leveled up first.

There is also a 4th druid spec - guardian

No, the OP states not to take leveling into consideration.

Most players have an idea what class/spec they expect to do well (whether it's heals/dps/tanking) and most of us have multiple classes to choose from.

Not at all pointless, and absolutely reflects class expecations to some degree.

Yup they separated Feral as Feral and Guardian... I guess to avoid confussion.

More so because PvP Feral players were able to dip into too many Bear cooldowns making them rather hard to balance without giving Feral Kitty too much access to both strong defensive and offensive cooldowns.

Not to derail my own thread...

Do you think people are more apt to play what they consider powerful, instead of what they've historically enjoyed and/or built up?

I personally don't care so much about relative power levels, but made my choice based my history with the character.

(also I meant to say Prot Warrior instead of Fury Warrior, but I'm bad at polls)

EDIT: can you have two polls in a thread? Might be interesting to ask "and was this your main coming out of Cata?"

Do you think that there's no relationship between powerful and enjoyment?

Either way, short answer is yes.

Not everyone will take what they think will be powerful/enjoyable Some people only have one class for example, or are uncomfortable with a new class. This is why sample size is absolutely crucial.

But yes, if a large enough sample size is taken, you will absolutely begin to see a relationship between enjoyment/overpowered versus what people are most comfortable with.

My Rogue has more hours under him than anything else... by far... and largely due to the 1S GCD he's usually what I enjoy the most. However, he is not who I will be bringing to MoP based on current changes.

Unfortunately no

TWSS, to the large shaman population......in seriousness though, I don't see why, no offense to you shamans but it is probably the most boring class to play for me in the game.
