A class is the primary adventuring style of a player character which determines the type of weapons and armor it can use, as well as what abilities , powers , skills , and spells it will gain throughout its adventures. Be aware that the choice of which class to play is constrained by the choice of race ; each race has a different group of available classes to choose from. Each class has three unique talent trees. As a character progresses, they can specialize their skills by assigning class talent points in any of the trees for their class. There are three talent trees for each class.

WoW Classic requires a subscription. Details here. For rogues, the only code is the contract, and their honor is purchased in gold. Free from the constraints of a conscience, these mercenaries rely on brutal and efficient tactics. Lethal assassins and masters of stealth, they will approach their marks from behind, piercing a vital organ and vanishing into the shadows before the victim hits the ground. Rogues often initiate combat with a surprise attack from the shadows, leading with vicious melee strikes.

Rogues, like this Blood Elf , wear leather armor. Leather armor is generally worn by demon hunters , druids , monks , and rogues throughout their full WoW "career". Leather armor provides more protection than cloth armor , but less than mail or plate armor. However, a Warrior or Paladin specced for DPS or healing may choose to use Leather Armor if the stats are an improvement in damage or healing; as a tanking class will be taking most of the damage in a group, the high mitigation provided by plate armor may not be necessary for a DPS or healer. Many leather wearing classes will most likely choose to wear all leather armor due to the leather specialization buff that will give them a stat bonus.
The paladin often shortened to "pala" or "pally" by players is a holy knight,  a hybrid class with the ability to play a variety of different roles — healing holy , tanking protection , and DPS retribution. They have blessings that provide useful buffs for other players while withstanding heavy physical damage with plate armor and strong defensive abilities. This is the call of the paladin: to protect the weak, to bring justice to the unjust, and to vanquish evil from the darkest corners of the world. These holy warriors are equipped with plate armor so they can confront the toughest of foes, and the blessing of the Light allows them to heal wounds and, in some cases, even restore life to the dead.
