But really, oh god, I don't know. I'm interested in Druid (Bear/Balance), Warlock (Demonology), Warrior (Fury), DK (Unholy) and of course Hunter (I don't even know). Mostly at the moment I'm interested in Warlock mostly based off of highly enjoying the class lore/fantasy. I still plan on keeping my Druid around as a 'second' main because Druid <3. And the new models look AMAZING.
Myself, I'm hoping to stay MM or BM hunter. Even if SV ends up overpowered, since it is a new spec, I don't think I feel the melee hunter fantasy. Otherwise, I'm liking the WW monk I'm leveling right now. I just need to play one on the PTR to see if I'll like the new playstyle.
Seems more and more like I'll be going Druid or Warlock as a main. I've been playing both on beta and enjoying them both (guardian and demo for the moment). New MM hunter just isn't clicking for me, so I'll probably just set Keskein aside for a bit. I do like SV hunter, but if I'm going to maintain a melee character I'd like to give another class a go (warrior or DK I think).
This breakdown of the melee classes is really good in my opinion. Not just because he says DKs are the best in his opinion but because what he has said is quite consistent with what many others are saying too.

So I've found some better resources for hunters that by far exceeds trying to sift through tears on theorycrafting forums. Now that I have a better idea of what I'm supposed to do with MM on Beta I'm having a much better time with it. Still no idea what I'm doing though cx
Hey you never know! They might fix ret pallies before release? (maybe) But I've heard great things about enhancement sham in Legion
Fingers crossed, but all trends haven't been pointing that way.
Cool to hear about enhancement sham, I may have to give that a try then. My OS on Maanduur has been elemental but I never really geared it up anyways so it's not like switching would be a pain gear wise (plus all new gear for legion will probably be decent in 1-3 levels)
Sticking with monk, I think, telling myself over again that it will all be ok!
I'm trying to convince myself it'll all be ok with warrior right now. Yesterday I was playing a windwalker monk on the PTR. As monk vs the raiding dummy I was pulling 50k dps in ilvl 680 gear. On my cloned PTR Acheron I pull 60k with 730ilvl. The WW monk rotation is also uses less buttons and relies on less RNG.
So I'm right there with you. Sticking to my guns, but thinking it might be a bad idea.
So, after a bit of browsing it seems like some of the Icy Veins class are still kind of garb. Example: some healing specs are listed as 'updated' but still list spirit in stat priority. Uhh. It seems like some pages were just copy-pasted to appear updated.
So if you're reading around for good guides, make sure you do some cross referencing! Obviously it's only just pre-patch and there's still tuning and changes that could toss up everything into the air. Still, some theorycrafters are better toted as knowing what they're talking about than others, haha.
I think I'll draft up a post with some pre-patch/early Legion guides I've come across that seem pretty good 😀
