Be a warrior, not a worrier

The Fury Warriors are a never-ending non-stop action show. Simply smash your face on the keyboard to perform the rotation.

I feel an army in my fist

The Windwalker Monks enjoy Zen serenity and meditation in their spare time. They did, however, introduce martial arts into the game, making them one of the best AoE burst and cleave damage classes available. They can also switch targets without any damage loss.

Too hot to handle

The Fire Mages can't stop themselves from starting a fire. Simply heat them up with as much critical strike as you can and watch the bodies burn. They excel at AoE burst damage, concentrating on priority targets while performing a side cleave. Give a mage a fire, and he'll be warm for an evening. Set a mage ablaze, and he'll be toasty for the rest of his life.

Pillage and plunder.

The bronze medal goes to the Outlaw Rogues, who are only interested in getting paid for their dungeon work. It's no surprise that they're nicknamed "World of Warcraft pirates." Outlaw Rogues are amazing because, rather than relying on AoE-specific abilities and rotations, they can do great AoE damage by continuing with their single target rotation. Rogues wear leather armor because it's made of hide.

  • Consistently high cleave and AoE damage with Blade Flurry.
  • Great group utilities such as Shroud of Concealment, Sap, Blind, Gouge, Kidney Shot, and Cheap Shot.

Let the hunt begin

The golden spot goes to the Survival Hunters, who survived and overcame everything the other nine specs threw at them, or maybe it is just because of the pet.

The favorite tool of the Survival Hunter is his bear hands.
