When I started in Wrath I began with a mage. Around the time ICC came around, I had switched to a priest who I still consider to be my main and played it as such through the rest of Wrath, Cata, and MoP. I always thought to myself if classic came around again or if I could start back in 2004 I would make a priest.
Well classic DID come around and a made a priest. Only, healing is brutal. Like just as bad if not worse than healing at the beginning of Cataclysm. Having to drink after EVERY SINGLE pull is crazy. So I swapped to shadow. Only even at 42 it feels like it takes an entire mana bar to kill anything and killing is SO SLOW.
I’m now 26 on my mage and I LOVE IT. Free drinks and food. Blink, frost nova, sheep, counterspell, teleports, and spells that feel they can hit a mob from MUCH FURTHER AWAY. So I think perhaps my mage will be my first 60 and I wasn’t wrong to start with one in Wrath.
Of course in Wrath I started as arcane and now I’m fire, but that’s neither here nor there. I guess frost is better but I really like killing things with fire, so, oh well.
