Hey, so I said it all in the title. I'm just curious what class/spec people are planning on bringing to the mix in Legion.

I plan on sticking with my wonderful hack n' slash warrior-gnome! As far as spec, I'll be Arms or Fury. Whichever nets me more deeps. Any case I'm looking forward to it.^^

This might come as a shock to everyone... especially those who know me really well.

But...

I'm going to be a druid.

Bruh, Unholy DK is looking mean again. Might try the whole Demon Hunter thing though.

Everything?? Can I main everything??

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.

I'm thinking about swapping my bear off spec for resto. We'll see! (if I don't i'm likely to get a second druid for the two specs i don't have on my main)

Since ret seems to be getting nerfed into the basement, I'll probably main prot pal. We'll see, though. I might end up liking my resto sham more since I have really gotten into it lately in WoD.

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.

Fury warrior's self-healing just got nerfed this week. Bloodthirst used to give 15% of my hp back, now it's down to a far more reasonable 4%. No idea what they were thinking before!

Shrykos:

Hey you never know! They might fix ret pallies before release? (maybe) But I've heard great things about enhancement sham in legion.


Keskein:

I almost switched to warlock this expansion. I even boosted a char to do just that back in December.


Thewaterboy:

Mages are always good. I can't ever remember a time when a mage was a bad thing. Ok, late vanilla they weren't the best but they were still needed.


Dante:

I thought you were switching to holy pally you undead-loving sicko. :P

Acheron, you see......I want to play holy pally if the guild needs it. But Unholy DK is just soooooo freaking fun in this expansion and is soooooooo freaking good.

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

https://trueshotlodge.ca/2016/07/15/patch-7-0-legion-hunter-guide/

http://eyesofthebeast.com/2016/07/patch-7-0-hunter-info-dump-pets-addons-stats-trinkets-and-more/


It looks like the preliminary pre-patch secondary stat priorities will be about so:

BM: Haste ~= Vers ~= Mastery ~= Crit (all very close)
SV: Vers > Crit > Haste > Mastery
MM: Mastery > Crit = Vers > Haste

Mastery looks like it will prevail as MM's top secondary stat 😭 Of course, that may change come Legion and further tuning of numbers.

And man, it really sucks that the HFC trinkets have been nerfed.

EDIT: Azortharion's Guide on Icy Veins is also out now (http://www.icy-veins.com/wow/marksmanship-hunter-pve-dps-guide). His rating for secondary stats is mastery > haste > vers > crit 😭😭😭 At least multistrike is turning into haste, I think.

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)

I just came here to post Azor's updated guide as well. Glad I saved all the haste/mastery gear I accumulated. Looks like it'll get some use.

Also have to switch enchants to mastery also. I haven't read the other links yet, and I didn't see it on Azor's write up, did they state if there was any DR to stacking mastery or haste?

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 😀
