Picking a class is largely dependent on what role you’re looking to fill in instances, raids, and guilds. That is to say, a tank, dps, or heals.
If the case is dps, you’ll also need to figure what subset of dps you’d like to deal. You’ve got your basic melee and ranged dps, both of which can be filled by most classes. You’ll also need to decide if you want to do tank-and-spank dps or DoT dps. Then there’s also the option of crowd control as a mage or rogue.
If you’re rolling a tank, you can choose either the classic Prot Warrior, the offhealing Prot Paladin, or the Feral druid who excellently offspecs.
For healing, your best bet is with the direct heals of a Holy Priest, or the HoTs of a Resto Druid. You can also choose the plate wearing Holy Paladin, or the elusive Restoration Shaman. (Totems can be a BIG help. Think Manaspring!)
Finally, you also need to determine who you’ll be leveling and raiding with, so as not to distribute loot unevenly between classes that use the same gear. If you have a paladin tank and paladin dps, you’ll have a tough time getting your gearscore up.
Finally, don’t make a gnome. You’ll never get gear, you’ll get punted, and you won’t be allowed in nice places.
Keegan is way cooler than me, and it’s not fair.
