Paladin Available for: Humans, Dwarves

Upholders of the Holy Light and defenders of the Alliance, the Paladins can be found from the northern forests of the Tirisfal Glades, fighting back the advance of the Forsaken, to the southern reaches of the Blasted Lands, ceaselessly upholding their vigil against demonic forces from beyond the Dark Portal. Wielding their mighty hammers and the strength of the Light, these holy warriors command forces in battle, all the while throwing themselves to where the fighting is the thickest.

Rogue Available for: Humans, Dwarves, Night Elves, Orcs, Undead, Gnomes, Trolls

At home in the shadows and skilled at disappearing from sight, the Rogues of Azeroth are most comfortable when acting in the background. Twisting events to their favor, striking only when advantage is greatest: this is where a Rogue excels. With their cunning tricks, physical abilities, and mastery of concealment and disguise, Rogues have no trouble finding employment as thieves, cutthroats, spies, and assassins.

Priest Available for: Humans, Night Elves, Dwarves, Undead, Trolls

Priests lead the many faiths spread throughout the disparate lands of the world of Azeroth. In Kalimdor, Night Elf Priestesses revere the moon goddess Elune, while Dwarven priests in Khaz Modan deliver the message of the Light to their people. In the ruins of Lordaeron, the Undead priests of the Forsaken, their faith twisted and tainted by their tortured existences, spread a dark interpretation of the Holy Light. Regardless of their faith, however, all Priests share in their ability to manipulate the minds of those who turn to them for spiritual guidance.

Warrior Available for: Humans, Orcs, Tauren, Dwarves, Night Elves, Undead, Gnomes, Trolls

Warriors are the melee-centered class. These characters are tough as nails and masters of weaponry and tactics. The special abilities of the warrior are naturally combat-oriented. The Shield Bash is a skill that allows a warrior to strike enemies with a shield, stunning them for a short period of time. The Defensive Stance is a technique for warding off enemy attacks. When used, this skill increases the character's armor rating for a little while.

Mage Available for: Humans, Trolls, Undead, Gnomes

The Mages of Warcraft once centered their powers within the mageocracy of Dalaran. After that kingdom's destruction by the Burning Legion, however, the arcane arts spread to the far corners of the world. A defensive power in the mage's mystic arsenal is Frost Armor - an enchantment the caster uses to increase armor protection for a time. Mages can attack as well as defend, of course, and the Fireball is an offensive weapon that hurls a fiery magic missile at a single target.

Shaman Available for: Orcs, Tauren, Trolls

Shamans are the spiritual leaders of their tribes and clans. They communicate with spirits, have visions of the future, and guide their people through the darkest of times. Many mistake their wisdom and serenity for a pacifist nature. When challenged, though, shamans have a range of powers available for dealing with threats to the natural order. The Lightning Bolt channels the energies of nature into a fearsome electrical charge that strikes a single enemy. The Lightning Shield is the reverse of the offensive bolt, generating an electrical barrier around a friendly character - damaging any that dare to attack. Questing in World of Warcraft is bound to be dangerous, and player characters won't always be on the right side of a sharpened edge. The shaman can prove a valuable ally during these times by calling on the aid of friendly spirits to heal wounds through the Restoration spell.

Warlock Available for: Humans, Orcs, Undead, Gnomes

Warlocks were mages that delved too deeply into the roots of demonic power. Consumed by a lust for dark knowledge, they've tapped into chaotic magics from beyond the world. The Burning Legion now feeds them their powers, allowing them to channel destructive energies and call upon the powerful emissaries of their demon masters.

Hunter Available for: Orcs, Tauren, Dwarves, Night Elves, Trolls

Azeroth is home to a wide variety of beasts. From the new world of Lordaeron to the old world of Kalimdor, all manner of creatures can be found. Some are friendly, some are ferocious and aggressive - yet they all have one thing in common. Each creature shares a special connection with Hunters. Hunters track, tame and slay all manner of animals and beasts found in the wilds. Whether they rely on bows or firearms, Hunters consider their weapons and pets to be their only true friends.

Hunter's Lodge Forums
Druid Available for: Tauren, Night Elves

Druids are the keepers of the world. Locked in slumber for generations, they awoke to meet the threat of the Burning Legion during its recent invasion. After Archimonde's defeat, the Druids chose to remain in the waking world and help to rebuild their shattered lands. The Legion's attack left a terrible scar on the natural order, and the Druids seek to heal it.
