I’m looking into booking my interrail pass for next year and as I’ve never done it before I’m not sure wether to buy a first or second class pass. Are their any major differences between the two and is paying the extra money for first class worth it?

It depends which Countries you visit and which trains you take.

From a included complimentary Drink and Meal in for example UK to just more legroom in a Regionaltrain in Germany :D

In few countries you get “Lounge Access” with the 1st Class Pass but don´t compare them with Airport Lounges :D

Usually in 2nd Class you have 2+2 Seating and in 1st Class a 1+2 seating.

Countries where the 1st Class Pass worths the money in my experience is UK,Sweden,Austria,Switzerland, Germany (due the panoramic 1st Class coach on the EC8,EC9 in the Rhine Valley :D )
