Without a doubt, millions of players across the globe are eagerly looking forward to playing the upcoming World of Warcraft Burning Crusade Classic later in 2021. It’s already mid-2021 at the time of this writing, so you can imagine how much anticipation has accumulated within us!

Much will change from the current Classic version of the game, enough so that it will even draw players away from the retail version of Shadowlands.

Burning Crusade adds 2 new Races: Blood Elves for the Horde and Draenei for the Alliance, putting the total number of available Races at 10.

If you take into account the 9 available Classes (Druid, Hunter, Mage, Paladin, Priest, Rogue, Shaman, Warrior and Warlock), you get quite an impressive arsenal when it comes to choosing a Race/Class combo!

Most guides focus on talking about which Race is the best for each Class, but what if you’re still unsure which Class to play, but have your heart already set on a specific Class? Or vice versa?

For example, many players definitely want to play Humans, because they are “relatable”, or Blood Elves, because they are “pretty”.

For that purpose, we have written guides about which is the best Class to play for each Race in the Classic Burning Crusade.

You can find the guides we’ve already written below. Others are works-in-progress, so definitely let us know which Race you want to see featured next! Perhaps you really want to play a Draenei, or dig the heavy-metal vibe of Orcs? Let us know and we’ll provide accommodating guides for your favorite Race!

Or if you’d rather have a guide for Shadowlands, because you like more recently added Races such as Worgen or Goblins, or even the allied Races like Mecha-Gnomes, we can set up guides for them as well. Don’t be shy, just ask!
