So I still can't pick...

    I play a mage/cleric/bard on live and I like the setup I have. I'm trying to decide what I want to main for progression server though. I can't pick between a cleric or shaman. I want to raid but from what I understand both are welcome on raids. Any thoughts?

    With the way DPS is going to work in classic, you wont need but 1 or 2 clerics on a raid in essence (most guilds will box these anyways) and shaman for utility...Clerics come into their own in Kunark and more-so in Velious. (However once PoF is unlocked in classic and level cap still being 50, clerics will be in dire need for CT pre-kunark as strategy will need to change).

    In my opinion play your shaman if your torn, its a good solo class, with raid utility and the ability and timeframe to be able to twink out a cleric later for raiding in forthcoming expansions. Gone are the days of having basic group/raids consisting of balance

    I played raid cleric on Vulak, so I have good experience to base this off of. IE: Naggy will be killed within 4 days of server launch, by less then 2 full groups, consisting most likely of 3 or 4 mages, 1 or 2 monks, an SK, either a druid or shaman and 1 cleric...vox will fall similarily later that day or the following with another few chars added including the need for another tank and secondary cleric

    Thanks. That's the kind of thing I was looking for. Based off what I have read it seems the mobs don't live long enough for a heal to fire. :)

    Complete Heal is basically useless unless you have a FD monk or SK (guess you could use it on a spam magepet too)...until Kunark with the right setup anyways, and is if you are trying to tank Naggy at this stage the way dps is setup with mage/monk your doing it wrong..its all about spamming pets and healing the monks...SK is there just for the Harmtouch and to try and hold aggro if sh*t goes wrong

    If you are looking to base your class off the super weak raiding on classic and kunark only, then sure go for whatever fits in that super quick 2 group team that hits Naggy 4 days after launch. If you want to play a class that you enjoy, and are not here for server first on a 32k mob that takes no skill to kill choose whatever you think achieves that. (sk harm touch or mage box). Real raiding starts in Velious, I suggest looking there for your answers.

    Yeah I'm not overly concerned with classic and most kunark raids, as they aren't raids. I have had a problem picking between shaman and cleric since this server was announced Hehe. Thankfully I should have enough time with six months to try both out before Kunark goes live.

    in essence...1 real player could kill naggy by day 3 if he/she didnt have to fear KS and wanted to play 16hours a day lol... I mean Mag/Mag/Mag/Mag/SK/CLR is the easiest route and there will be a few people/group of friends attempting this just to get the server 1st and bragging rights

    I'll spend the rest of my shift crafting a pro and con list. It's a slow night anyway.

    lol im at work to for another 3 hours, my laptop out on me at home so im not even going to be able to play at launch but with 6 months of classic it really doesnt matter

    Lol yes you will have plenty of time to catch up. But 3 hours and 38 minutes to make this list. But who's counting.
