Safest class to one-trick is probably Mage or Rogue. They'll always have something at least tier 3 imo. Used to be Druid but they've been hit with one too many nerfs. One more and they could be Warrior level in certain metas.
If i can get to rank 5 with combo priest (tier 4 according to latest data reaper report #99) with a record of 10-1, i will always be fine. granted i had two lucky streaks but it was also extremely early in the season on the 3rd day.

i think the beauty of focusing on a single class (i have close to 2500 wins on priest) is that, you become so good at it that getting to rank 5 is always going to be extremely easy.

so 52 tavern brawl packs, 12 rank-5 chests per year, that's 5200 (52*100) +505 (seasonal chest) *12 = 11260 dusts, this is before accounting for rewards from daily quests and 3-wins, choose your champion packs, promotional events or free expansion packs/legendaries.

I'm the kind of guy that wants to get all classes as golden though. I like achievements too much lol. That's why WoW is great... and terrible...

I would get so goddamn bored playing divine spirit/inner fire for 4 years straight. Though with the new ladder it's much less onerous to hit rank 5.

I usually play 2-3 games a day for the first week with various combinations of cancer aggro to hit rank 5, then If I get bored of odd pally I switch up to odd rogue. If I get bored of that I switch up to even shaman. Never a problem to hit rank 5.

Then I play whatever wacky deck I come across on youtube at the floor. Stuff like Reno Yogg Hunter.


Have barely played at all this season, should probably hit rank 5 this weekend I guess.

i am pretty sure I only play combo priest maybe 2~3 times a year to hit rank 5.

usually there is something better.

this season i did it because i got sick of playing mind blast control priest for god knows how many seasons in a row.

took me 7 tries but finally won a game off of mecha'thun's trigger. Animation is underwhelming.
