Good, non-overpowered PvP class to play?

#1Muffins_RoolPosted 12/10/2012 12:53:06 AM
I've played for years and never really did much pvp...kind of want to get into it a bit.

What's a good class to pick that's not OP? (I don't like playing a class that's OP because I've noticed Blizzard has a tendency to OVER-nerf stuff, then slowly bring it up to a balanced level).

I don't want to play something completely underpowered either though...just something that can be good. I'll primarily be doing non-rated BGs, queuing alone.

I'm not very interested in healing, due to my solo queuing.

In PvP, good = overpowered. Your request is for something that doesn't exist.

So you're saying, in PvP, you're either OP or crap?

In depends on the state of the game. For most of Cata, there was OP (rogues, DKs, warlocks, resto shaman) and crap (DPS shaman, balance and resto druid) but most specs (mages, hunters, feral druid, priests) fell somewhere in the middle, with certain specs leaning towards low or high end (ie warriors were closer to crap than OP). PvP didn't revolve around 3-second kills and attacks dealing >50% a geared target's HP was unheard of, so those classes that were reasonably well balanced could still be very effective.

The current turbobursty state of the game leaves only OP (warrior, mage, destro lock sort-of-ish, resto shaman) and crap (everything else).
