Breakfast Topic: How many classes do you play?

Anne Stickney

After quietly getting my druid to level 90, I was delighted with the waterfall of bind-on-account gear tokens found on the Timeless Isle. I play a rogue as my main, having long ago hung up the healing priest for something far more ... stabby. Because of this, most of the gear that I've seen has been leather drops, which I then dutifully shipped over to my woefully under-geared druid, convinced that the gear upgrades would make up for how dreadfully squishy and underpowered the poor kitty seemed to be.

Unfortunately, after spending some time putting together all that fancy new gear and donning my druid in appropriately powerful attire, what I have discovered is this: I am really, really terrible at playing a druid. It doesn't matter what her item level happens to be, she still dies before she manages to shred anything. Now don't get me wrong -- I'm really good at playing my rogue, even if I do say so myself. My raid guild has absolutely no complaints. I just make a particularly awful druid, and I'm not quite sure what to do about it.

As I thought about this, I realized there really isn't a class I know as well as I know my rogue. I used to play priest primarily, even as a raiding main, but it's been years since I've played my priest for longer than brief spurts of leveling. I've leveled alts of many different classes -- a warlock, shaman, hunter, paladin -- but none of them really stuck, and I never learned any of them as well as I currently know my rogue. So I'm curious -- how many classes do you guys play? And I don't mean dabble, I mean play in a really effective fashion? Do you know the ins and outs of all the classes, or have you specialized in just one? Do you raid or do LFR with your alts, or are they just there to grind materials and professions? How well do you know the classes of WoW?
