Each time a new expansion is about to hit, we ask ourselves the same question: “should we change our main character?”.
It implies that we aren’t happy with our actual mains… To be honest, we haven’t been happy with the Hunter in a long time. There are some great things about it, but the gameplay is no longer one of them.
Therefore, we’re always trying other classes in the hope to find a replacement.
We’ve tried many classes lately, both on live and beta servers, and the pattern has been the same for all of them: discovery – excitement – disappointment. For example, we would try a destruction warlock, get comfortable with it, reach max level, have fun completing quests, go in a dungeon and, almost directly, get bored with it.
After a few weeks hurting ourselves, we’ve finally found the right fit and, guess what, it’s the same class for both of us!
For my husband, Sardoken, the problem didn’t come from the class but from the role. He just doesn’t enjoy DPSing in dungeons… Healer was where the fun was when he started to play, 14 years ago, and it still is today.
For me, the problem was that no other class could bring her as much fun as the Moonkin. Eventhough she found the Paladin and the Warlock interesting, the Druid is what makes her feel the most comfortable in dungeons. Nothing like a dashing cat to catch back the group, especially those Demon Hunters.
As for the faction, no matter how beautiful Kul Tiras can be, and no matter how crazy Sylvanas can go, we’ll stay faithful to our faction: For the Horde!
TLDR: We’ll switch mains in BFA but not for a class we’ve never played before, our druids will finally have the place they deserve.
Now, off to complete those last achievements before 8.0 is realeased.
