And now we bring you the next episode in the continuing saga of the alt.
I've got it pretty much narrowed down to the Hunter or the Mage.
I really think I'd dig a Warlock, but I just can't get past the whole evil Demon guy thing. I like to play good guys, and we are supposed to be fighting against the Demons in the story, not making friends with them. Plus, I'm never sure who is controlling who with a Warlock and its pet.
I decided to knock out any class with a healing spell. I've fought that battle on Honors. If I roll a class with Healing spell, I'll roll it with the intention of being a Healer. Most likely choice for this would be a Druid.
That leaves Rogue, Warrior, Mage, and Hunter. Honors being a melee character, I'd prefer to go range on the alt.
I've played both a Mage and a Hunter to the 30s, and the bottom line is I like the Hunter. The biggest deterrent to leveling the Hunter is that it seems many many people dig Hunters. Hunters are the most played Class on AoS.
It would be easier to get groups as a Mage. Everybody knows Sheep is a better CC than Trap. But ultimately, this is a game, and I shouldn't let other people dictate my play. I've never let anyone dictate my play on Honors.
One of the things I really love about Honors is his uniqueness. I'm one of maybe a dozen Prot Paladins on the server. I'm unique. Very few other classes/specs have that to them. Maybe Shaman as they are the least played class in WoW according to the Armory Musings. If I rolled the Shaman, I'd have to do it with at least the idea that he'd be a healer.
So the decision ultimately came to the fact that I really enjoy playing the Hunter, and in the end, isn't that the only thing that matters. If this guy ever becomes a main, something has gone horribly wrong with Paladin Tanking.
Ultimately, I'd love to have (3) 70s. Honorshammer as my main and tank character. My Hunter as an alt DPSer, and a eventually a Healer, though I'm not sure which Healing class is the most "fun". It would likely be either Shaman or Druid.
