    You have to play what you enjoy. There's nothing worse than picking a class and finding out you hate the playstyle.

    But you've listed some strong classes in the free to play bracket. Any of those when geared will do well.

    I suggest you try them out to find what suits you best.

    I also recommend you try classes not on your list. You will get a lot of kudos for sticking with less popular choices such as Feral Druid, Enhance Shaman, Elemental Shaman, Holy Priest, Warlock and Arms Warriors. They have their niche places within the bracket and the satisfaction of beating the stronger classes is what i enjoy.

    If you're looking to play long term, it's a good idea to be thinking of classes that are "forever meta". In other words, classes that have a kit that will keep them useful and effective in BGs, regardless of incoming nerfs and buffs.

    Alot of the specs and classes you've mentioned are on top now but have been garbage in the past. You don't wanna put effort (especially the grind heavy effort of f2p) into a class that becomes useless when blizzard makes arcane missles a level 22 spell or decides Titans Grip is just too difficult to balance around.

    Hybrid classes like druids and shaman almost always have at least one spec that's viable. In the past, even when their specs weren't the best, they worked as impressive FCs.

    Rogues CC and priests versatility pretty much always keep them at the top or at least desirable. Last xpacs, outlaw did garbo dmg but it had outstanding CC pressure.

    So keep that kinda stuff in mind too. Arcane mages and MM hunters are impressive now but they were dogshit six months ago. Things change.

    For f2p? If you’re solo queuing, you’re probably gonna have the best time on a healer. Priest is top right now, but resto druid and resto shaman are both very fun. F2P healers can keep pace with vet and 29 twinks and actually have a bit of survivability.

    FWIW I’ve had a ton of success on my resto druid. It’s not uncommon to see both my healing and damage numbers in the top 3. Priests are the only healers that consistently outheal me, but I like being a bit more slippery and annoying.

    If you wanna roll dps, I’d say fury warrior, marksman (aimed shot gets a massive buff in 8.1) and arcane mage. They all put out obscene damage and, when played well, are tough to pin down. Ignore the fotm mages who just spam missles and stand in place while they get wailed on by dps. A f2p arcane mage that knows how to frost nova and blink is probably the most dangerous f2p dps on the map right now.

    If you want to be annoying, stack vers on an outlaw rogue. Without ele force, you’re not gonna do much by way of damage but you can absolutely be the worlds most annoying CC machine. And there’s a bit of finesse (as much as f2p can have, anyway) in that class that makes it fun to play.

    Ultimately it’s up to you and playing a class you like. But if I was you, I’d play resto druid, resto shaman or disc priest. You won’t do the most damage or the most healing but your survivability and support kits are really good and you won’t feel like you’re just free kills for enemy fury warriors

    Hunter, Rogue, and Warrior are usually viable at least in one spec at this bracket. They pretty much (for the most part) always have, and likely always will be at the very least "good". They also more often than not are very good to OP.

    Most things that are staggeringly FOTM and OP tend to go and come (Arcane mage, resto shaman), and I wouldn't recommend investing time into on F2P. Instead, I'd rather suggest do those at 19 or 29.

    Healing specs, are usually at the very least useful. Tank specs are almost entirely worthless right now, but that may change eventually. You may not be OP, but if you are a healer you will always be at least useful. You also can gear exceptionally fast with instant pop dungeons. Healers are also the least effected by the gap of enchants that P2P have, in my experience. While some classes like Rogue suffer massive damage decreases, healers are still very much great.
