    My plan at the moment is to level the paladins as holy and the warriors as 2H fury until I get enough hit rating to DW. Whenever necessary you can switch to a 1H/shield and go defensive stance on any...

    Some of it probably doesn't translate but that doesn't mean people haven't acquired a lot more knowledge about the game in the past 15 years. If nothing else, the tricks with particular items or raid...

    I'm just curious if [@player] works. It would make things a lot easier to macro when you're mindlessly grinding dungeons.

    Another use I can think of for two warlocks over two mages is having different pets. One could have an imp out for blood pact and fire shield and the other could have a felhunter for interrupts and...

    Why? Recent experience on private servers seems more trustworthy than 15 year old memories to me. Pretty much all of the people I know that play on private servers also played retail vanilla.

    This is not true at all. Warriors were generally the most optimal tank but druids can tank just about every raid in classic, especially if you're speed running farm content and you have very geared...

    Warriors have stronger AE on standard mob packs (4-6) with cleave/whilrlwind. Mages and warlocks have stronger AE on larger packs because their AE skills have no cap. However, you only really utilize...

    Last I heard battle shout isn't generating any threat on beta. I don't know if that's something Blizzard will fix.

    Preraid BiS for melee classes is significantly stronger than for casters. There...

    You could swap the druid for a warrior if you prefer warriors. Druids have better AE threat generation -- at least until (if) Blizzard fixes battle shout.

    However, I'd revise that statement now...

    Having a tank would make warlocks viable but I still wouldn't play warlocks without /focus, personally. I use it for off tanking with pets, CC with succubus, etc. Boxing warlocks without focus just...

    Hunters work pretty well in PvE. I just find them horrible to box in PvP. You get jumped by a couple of melee and you have to struggle for the first 5-10 seconds of the fight just getting your...

    In vanilla there was a macro to allow you to spam wand without resetting the timer. Not sure how that will work in classic. Try /cast !shoot.

    I'd say the level 30 felhunter quest for Warlocks is also mandatory. Dispel/interrupt is pretty huge.

    You were able to switch all of your gear in very early vanilla. It was pretty OP.

    You can still make some use of weapon swapping. For example, as a warrior you can use a macro to switch to a 2H...

    You can tank and heal in the same spec as either druid or paladin. All you have to do is swap gear. HoTW/NS is also the strongest PvP spec for a druid.

    Warrior, paladin and warlock would work fine but mages give you more reliable CC plus free water and portals that speed things up quite a bit. If I were mostly focused on PvE I'd definitely pick at...

    Yeah, that's a tank weapon. Great for off tanks in raids.

    This will be my main group also. I'll just use a paladin to boost 3 warlocks later on so I can swap between warriors/warlocks (assuming somebody figures out a /focus substitute.) I can't think of any...

    Personally, I always prefer double healer. 3 Warriors is plenty of DPS and having that extra HPS really smooths things out. Especially since I play alliance and paladins only have single target heals.
