People need to remember that pallys need to think ALOT about counterspells, CC etc. A good pally that's able to keep his teammates up when facing a mage team should get a cookie.

Most skill TO play? Really, you have to be more specific:
The amount of skill required to be successful (in arena, for example) is VERY different from the highest skill a player of any class could be.

For example, it TAKES a rogue very little skill to be successful in arena, especially with PvE gear... However, Rogues almost undoubtedly have the highest potential for skill of any class, due to the complicated mechanics of gameplay. The performance of the skill-capped rogue vs. the average gladiator is VERY small, however, so there is no significant practical reason to achieve high levels of skill other than for the joy of self improvement.

So, really, it depends on whether you mean which class requires the most skill the be successful with in arena, or which class has the potential for the use of highest skill. For the former, I'd say warlock, priest, or mage... though, it really takes very little skill for any class to be successful in arena.

The same thing could be said about most classes.

Voted hunter, since they're probably the hardest class to master.

Imo, hunter is very hard to master. It's not that viable of a class overall in arenas, you have to micromanage several different targets, micromanage a pet, shot rotation, positioning. Mage on the other hand isn't as difficult imo because the matches will be really quick most of the time, and they'll usually dominate the matches they win. Either that or countered by warlocks.

Shaman is also a hard healer. Lack of good hots, lack of viable comps, can only win by gibbing a player- outlasting in mana is usually never an option, double DPS owns shamans hard.

I'd say warlock

NOT BIASED AT ALL

But really though I have to split my head in 2 to successfully be able to juke play a rogue on me and keep track of another target trying to juke my spell locks.

actually warlocks are easy and it annoys me seeing so many really bad locks getting high rated when they can't pet micro at all/up keep dots because the class is very forgiving.
