Playing with a Hunter team mate makes this game hard but I wouldn't say that Hunters themselves seem hard.

Shamans arent even the best healer atm, priest are unkillable and unoomable. Maybe if lock fear and priest fear didn't share dr locks could play with priest. Or druids if druids didnt suck dick. Warlocks are just pigeon holed into playing with shamans, not because shamans are the "best" healer because they arent.

Poll is biased because it doesn't have spec.

Prolly lock though, maybe rdruid.

I wouldn't say hunter is hard to play at all, it's just that there are a lot of terrible hunters out there, and the good ones are few and far between.

I personally (from experience) think, that the hardest classes to play (specific specs) are in increasing order:

5. Fire Mage
4. Feral Druid
3. Aff Lock
2. Rogue (generally)
1. Shadow Priest.

Did some people in the comments really say that Hunters are shit in Arena? Did I just miss something? Imo Disc Priest is hardest to play, might be biased but yeah. still loving to play it.

hardest healer is disc
hardest melee is probably rogue (compared to the other melees)
hardest caster is umm... I'd go with shadow but I'm probably biased on that...

Edit:
And why the fuck are people saying hunter is hardest. Just because a class is broken (it's not even bad right now, just broken mechanics) doesn't make it hard to play. Hunter is not hard at all you just need to be able to land traps.

Total agree on that one. In my oppinion Hunters are probably some of or the easiest class to play in PvP

The Pool is about "Hardest Class to play" and not about "Easiest Class to kill" So it's about the mechanics of the class

The reason hunter is so high is because the op wasn't specific in what area of PvP is hardest for each class.


Like, playing at 1200 as a hunter is fairly easy, but moving from 1200 to 2200 as a hunter is a LOT more challenging, than say, with a mage, and playing at 2700 requires superhuman reflexes as a hunter, while not as much for other classes.

Part of that is because hunters are, yes, naturally flawed in arena. It would make sense that it is harder to play when you are at a disadvantage. Think setting the difficulty slider higher when you PvP as a hunter.



TL;DR:

It is easy to kill nubs with a hunter. It isn't as easy to kill pros with a hunter as it is with say, a mage or rogue.


That also explains the enormous amount of Hunter-directed QQ that exists while hunters have historically been one of the worst arena classes since its inception: The majority of players are, in fact, bad.


As for what class actually has the hardest game mechanics, It probably wouldn't be the hunter. The hunter is rather simple, you press a button and do damage until your orange bar goes away, then you press another button until you can press the first button again. The difficulty comes from the fact that the hunter is not streamlined in the slightest. It was designed as if it was that homework assignment that you forgot about until 10 minutes before class, so you wrote it on a napkin and turned it in because even a 30 is better than a 0. It is difficult because you basically have to deal with the myriad of design faults in the class before you even get to the arena, whose base design naturally hampers a hunter more so than any other class based upon the way that los objects interact with minimum range. (Thankfully, this is being remedied in MoP).

Hunters are fine.


They're not the hardest class to play, but i wouldnt say they're the easiest. Heck even being able to land traps consistantly against good players requires more than playing certain classes :lol:

Warriors are not an easy class to kill at all.

Warriors are the hardest class to play vs good teams, because the class has the worst mechanics in the game which can be easily exploited by good teams.

Warriors who are left unpeeled are a paintrain, if they can keep 3 stacks of Lambs up, you're fucked. And hence why Warriors shine against incompetent players, because they don't know the class mechanics and how to exploit them.

They bring much much more constant damage than, for example, a Rogue. Only way Rogues can do good constant damage if they are allowed to restealth or use major cooldowns like Vanish and Shadow Dance (which is a burst cooldown).

When playing my Priest, I find Warriors harder to tank than DKs sometimes. If my partner is going for a kill on Warrior's healer, I have to tank him, and spamming 13-14k Flash Heals when he can deal 30k+ damage in 1 global is a pain.
