Try out every class until level 10 or 15, then go from there. Most classes really don't get fun (at least IMO) until the later levels, such as 60+.

It is because we started this game long time ago and had in mind that we wanted to do something in the end game, which then we HAD TO commit to this one character to accomplish anything (despite this term sounding weird for a game, but admittedly it has some feel to it). In fact at one point you had no options other than playing one character if you wanted to reach the max level due to how much time it used to take unlike now.

Personally... With time, said character grew on me and I stuck with it for around a year and a half before considering changing to a new character which lasted two and a half year this time, then I leveled alt because I had time at one point and wanted to learn all the possible cooldowns for classes in order to be able to raid lead efficiently.

But mainly it is about wanting to do something in the end game like raiding or pvp. You will have to focus on one character in that case at least in the beginning. If all you want to do is 5 mans and the like of that, then it doesn't really matter how many times you reroll.

Everything is good one way or another. There are classes that are better than other classes of course in either or both aspects. Since you seem like a casual player seriously it all boils down to the fun factor and what you want to do (tank, heal, or deal damage).

Nobody can tell you what is good for you or what you will have fun as. A basic newbie friendly class and that is good in both aspects is warrior. More basic playstyle to that is the Arms spec (read, NOT WHAT'S MOST FUN, NOBODY CAN TELL YOU THAT). That's all i can say on the matter.

What classes have you tried playing? They really feel different, some of them, and spec matters too. If you're getting bored on your Paladin, try changing the spec. Go from Ret to Prot or if you're Prot already, then go Ret. If you've never healed before, get a decent add-on like Healium and go Holy. Try it out. Maybe you'll like it. If it's the Paladin itself that you don't much dig anymore, then try the next class, sure. One server lets you play all 11 classes, so I'd suggest making one of each and play until at least 30 on each. Dual-spec into two different specs that seem fun and try that. Some small examples of how a new spec can make the difference in "feel" of gameplay:

Warlock : Aff is all about DoTs and managing those, whereas Destro is more direct damage and nukes, like a Fire Mage.

Shaman: Melee dual-wielding weapons that are ~ 2.60 weapon speed. vs a ranged caster. One feels traditionally "magey" with lightning bolts and lava bursts. The other feels like a Dervish character (if you've played other, typically older RPGs). I originally made my Enhance Shaman, for instance, because I liked the idea of a dual-wielding melee machine. But I never liked how Rogues played in this game. Plus with their mix of magic you're melee, but still get explosions and magic flying around. It's pretty neat.

If you kind of like how Aff locks play, but something seems off, try Shadow Priest. Similar, but different. Mage has 2 direct damage specs (do you like red fire or purple energy?) vs a snaring/pet spec.

Little things like spec changes in the same class can really make the difference sometimes. Worth a shot, if you like the game but can't seem to find the right fit for your "main."

I played with a set group of friends 1-90, if you have a set up determined by friends that involves important roles you usually stick to your character instead of screwing your friends.
