World of Warcraft: Guide to Choosing Race and Class

In World of Warcraft, you can create up to 50 characters per account and 12 per realm (server), so you can experiment with different combinations and see what race and class suit you best. However, choosing a race and class for a character can be a daunting task, especially for new players. The game offers a variety of options, each with its own strengths and weaknesses.

There are 13 races in World of Warcraft: Human, Dwarf, Night Elf, Gnome, Draenei, Worgen, Orc, Troll, Tauren, Undead, Blood Elf, Goblin and Dracthyr. Each race has its own appearance, culture, history, and racial traits that can provide some benefits or drawbacks in certain situations.

There are also 13 classes in World of Warcraft: Warrior, Paladin, Hunter, Rogue, Priest, Shaman, Mage, Warlock, Monk, Druid, Evoker, Demon Hunter, and Death Knight. Each class has its own playstyle, strengths, weaknesses, and specializations that can further customize your role and abilities.

However, some factors that you may want to consider are:

The faction: There are two factions in World of Warcraft: the Alliance and the Horde. Each faction has six races that are exclusive to it. You can only communicate and cooperate with players of your own faction (unless you use certain items or abilities that allow cross-faction interaction). You can also engage in PvP combat with players of the opposite faction in certain zones or modes. The faction you choose will also affect your starting zone and some of the quests and storylines you will encounter.

The lore: Each race and class has its own backstory and lore that can enrich your immersion and enjoyment of the game. You can learn more about the history and culture of each race and class by reading quest texts, books, NPCs’ dialogues, or online sources such as Wowpedia or Wowhead.

The gameplay: Each race and class has its own gameplay mechanics that can affect your performance and fun. For example, some races have passive abilities that increase their movement speed or resistance to certain effects. Some classes have active abilities that allow them to heal themselves or others, deal damage from a distance or up close, tank damage for their allies or avoid it altogether. Some classes also have more options for their specializations than others.

Have you decided in which race and class to put your character in?
