    Thanks for the info. I didn't have a chance to check out the beta.

    Warrior/Priest Zero downtime. Hunter/Hunter Zero downtime plus the main hunter can spec BM and have a tanking pet other Marksmanship. That's what you want when dual boxing. What's the least amount of down time. I can out kill mages with a 2 hunter setup, your not AOEing your just grinding the mobs faster and non stop.

    Warrior healer is great but out of all the healers, priest is probably the least optimal to pair with. Shield prevents rage generation and priests don't have any buffs that increase physical damage. All of the other healers get stuff that reduces armor or buffs that are more helpful to a warrior.

    As for hunters, it's personal preference but I'm not a fan. The dead zone is a pain to deal with in PvP or when pulls get messy (add spawns) and mobs get too close to you. Hunter playstyle requires a lot of micromanagement and movement with kiting, feigning, traps, scatter shot, etc. They also don't synergize particularly well. Hunters are great soloers but two hunters can't do much more than one hunter solo. If you pair a hunter with a healer (druid is great for stealth runs whlie your hunter feigns to lose agro) you could do stuff like solo tribute runs, Maraudon farming, 2man BRD emperor, etc.

    I hadn't thought of that issue with a priest and warrior. Maybe druid and warrior would be a better choice.

    Vanilla is a lot more time consuming than most other versions of WoW so you might as well pick classes you enjoy. Especially if you plan to raid. There's no point choosing a class based on leveling speed if you're not going to enjoy playing it at 60.

    If you prefer priest, play a priest. It will work fine. I just meant that if your only interest is maximizing your DPS output in a duo, the other healers provide stronger buffs for melee. Windfury totem in particular is a huge DPS increase.

    I still prefer warlocks personally. Especially for boxing. The only reason I plan on leveling a mage is to get it to 60 for portals and water and then replace it with another warlock.
    I am thinking this as well I was also thinking of a rouge and druid I have not still made my mind up quite yet still waiting on any one who boxing ..

    2x Night Elf Hunters

    I plan on doing world pvp. Stealth at a choke point, some poor unsuspecting toon runs by and gets opened by two aimed shots + pets.
    One hunter will be kinda dormant while the other I main will be running around kiting those focusing the slave toon

    Follow is most likely disabled during pvp combat and for sure in bgs so this limits what I would play(I have had the beta for a week and still havent made a character). I would be available for isboxer testing if needed.

    Alas, I would play double rogue if I was going to play duo and play them hemo sword spec. Eviscerate damage is not based on gear so not being as gear dependent suits me. I probably wouldnt raid that much and just play for pvp mostly. Pick pocketing for gold in brd for example is decent gold per hour and there are many ways for rogues to get gold because of stealth.

    Although, boxing three has always been my sweet spot and I personally wouldnt go more than that ever again honestly. Also, there is something intriguing about double warrior/shaman with windfury and their many, many fear escapes.

    I'm loving this discussion! And I totally forgot that disc shields stopped warrior rage gen :/
    I'm pretty close to locking in Warrior/Shaman/Mage, with the Mage being my raiding 'main'
    Not sure which would be the best master would be, going to need to test that but I assume the mage with the other two toons doing melee IWT

    Hunter + Druid sounds interesting to me as well.
    cheetah/cheetah - HoTs + Roots; for example would allow this combo to be rather mobile
