Iv been primarily a PVE warlock since vanilla, although i play on a pvp server i avoid it at all costs becasue i am so bad at it lol. I still haven't used my legion boost and really want to roll a toon who is great at pvp and easy to use or should i say noob pvp friendly. Are rogues still good? Iv always wanted a gnome rogue? Thoughts?

    I say pick whatever you really want to play and just PvP a lot - even if you suck, youll get better over time.

    You will probably get more helpful answers if you post in a dedicated wow forum or reddit.

    yeah man, just gotta get used to pvp, class don't make much difference, but if ya mained lock that long i'd stick with lock, if ya wanna try something new i'd try hunter or mage since yer used to ranged classes

    Shammys are in a good place right now. DKs, but they have always been basically.

    My favorite is the underdog priest though, if you dedicate time to really learn how to use it, its absolutely amazing fun.

    Same with mage, also underdog atm, but man, the people that are skilled in mages, they can instant kill just about anything, especially melee. How they do it, I will never know.

    But everything can change whenever in WoW. Blizzard, as you may already know by now, make use of the Fotm players as much as possible, so they buff and nerf everything left and right.
    Which means what ever class you pick will only be the OP one for a shorter time.

    I suggest you pick a class that feels natural for you to play and just stick with it through nerfs and buffs.

    Playing the underdog classes can after all be really really fun.

    You can try a rogue or feral cat druid.  It can help you to plan your attacks while you are hidden in stealth, as opposed to classes that are always in clear view of their opponents.  

    I have always played a feral druid, and when I got bored, i just switched up to a healer druid.  That would be my best recommendation. Plus, as a healer druid back-up, it is much easier to get into groups on the PvE side of the coin.

    +1

    druid is your best bet , u can go feral and stealth kill , or go boomking and moonfire ppl from afar , or go healer and survive anything but vs 3-4 and even then u can outrun them all , druid is the most slippery class

    If you're bad at PvP, don't go rogue, believe it or not rogue does take some effort and ability. What type of PvP are you wanting to do?

    Hunters are obviously still the most ideal for a noob in PvP, it is probably the least frustrating of the classes to play for a noob. Ferals are decent but again if you're bad you'll probably hate melee classes. Stay away from Shaman, one of the most frustrating classes to play in PvP. 

    Honestly the best thing to do is do some low level bg's, it'll give you an idea of what to expect by around level 30-40. That way you don't waste a boost.

    Really depends on what you want to do, but Warriors and Shadow Priests seem to work well for me where casual PvP is concerned.

    Rogues are one of those tactical classes, so not n00b friendly.

    First thing to settle on is if you like melee or ranged play.

    Second thing, what role you want to play the most.

    Warlocks are self-sufficient in solo PvP if caught unawares. They like Shadow Priests apply a lot of background pressure wearing out players and their CDs.

    Warriors cleave hard, at the expense of any heal is on a long cooldown.

    DKs is a DoT cleave class, and they apply a lot of background pressure with upclose face time against casters.

    Hybrid classes (like Druids/Paladins/Shamans) have the hybrid penalty, but the variety of roles to play (so you can fulfill any role in a group ... which means more groups you can play in, as groups are always looking for tanks or healers).

    So the best advice is pick the play style and role first, then try different classes to find your fit (FoTM is for those with a barn full of alts that are even geared up to play). Best to settle on a particular class where you can even make a nerfed class shine.

    The really good PvP players start with one class and get good at it before branching out to FoTM.

    Half the deal in PvP is learning class counters, why it's important to get good at one class and move to the next to understand them, too.
