i had all 8 class at 80 and fully geared with ascend rings.
i like mesmer the most, and then guardian and then warrior, and then element.
thief, necro, engineer, ranger are in a group of less fun than the other.

Mesmer and Engineer are unknowns
All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.
I get banned in the forums for games I love, so lets see if I do better in the forums for games I hate.
I enjoy the serenity of not caring what your opinion is.
I don't hate much, but I hate Apple© with a passion. If Steve Jobs was alive, I would punch him in the face.
Thanks for participating, I need more voting !!
I am doing a project, and this is part of the statistic I need to do!!
Anyway, that also helps me to re-roll a character for GW2 as I never passed lvl 10 in the game, and I am interested to play GW2 again!!
Played: EQ1 (10 Years), Guild Wars, Rift, TERATried: EQ2, Vanguard, Lord of the Rings Online, Dungeons and Dragons Online, Runes of Magic and countless others...Currently Playing: GW2

I said RANGER.
Which I define as a pure archer/sniper
Ranger was my main. And it was nice when they finally fixed the problem with pets unable to attack moving targets (how the HELL did that get past beta?) It was my fall to class and it was fun.
But I gotta say, playing a MESMER is FANTASTIC. Not only do they have multiple 'OH SHIT' buttons but they've had SO many completely overpowered builds on and off for the longest time. Plus its funny being able to kill 2 people at the same time because they don't know how to fight a mesmer.
So if you notice that I'm no longer answering your nonsense, stop trying... because you just joined my block list.

Originally posted by Dolmong Sounds like melee has no love in this game. =( I am struggling who to role, as I love melee class (armor looks awesome in heavy), but they suck in most of MMO games.
it's simply that they have chimpanzees working on PVE class balance over there and they have no clue what they are doing because they don't have a PTR to receive the results of what they are doing on a massive scale from players reports. They are relying on a small biased team and testing is no more advanced then a couple of guys logging into a WvW closed server throwing rocks at a couple of stationary targets.
Since they've finally started to separate the coded behaviors of skills for PVE PVP and WvW (something they should have done from launch) we've got hope that they'll realize just what they've done for the past 8 months to PVE but I wouldn't hold my breath.
All my opinions are just that..opinions. If you like my opinions..coolness.If you dont like my opinion....I really dont care.Playing: SWTOR, ESO, WOT, and Marvel Heroes
You're creating a false dilemma if you're just worried about being able to melee, as every class can have a completely viable melee build. I play my elementalist with dual wielded daggers for most situations, which, to me, feels awesome. An elemental spell slinging, cloth-wearing, in-your-face melee caster feels so fresh. And the playstyle is an absolute blast to me. Needless to say, to get to the topic of this thread, elementalist is my favorite class.
Even rangers have tons of melee. They can swap to greatswords Aragorn style and dual it out. I personally leveled with an aoe condition damage build using axe + torch as my main weapon set along with some traps.
If it's just about heavy armor for you, warrior and guardian are actually easily the most played classes in the game; so they're obviously feeling the love. This particular poll is sitting at a rather small sample size at the moment. And, of course, most played does not necessarily equal favorite.
Need more Vote... But thank you for all of you participate.
I think I will roll a Ranger..
Guardian and Elementalist have settled in as my favorite two, but there aren't any I don't find fun.
I play a "Healway" Guardian, Sword/Focus and Greatsword. I love the mobility, heal on dodge, etc... I actually have two Elementalists, Dagger/Dagger and Staff. D/D is a fav of mine for PvE, but I love Staff Ele for WvW.
The versatility of builds is great. If they ever manage to expand the number of builds that are efficient/viable, the game will be much the better for it. The pieces are all thre, but fear of having to balance a plethora of equally viable builds seems to have become a self limiting barrier for the devs that work on profession balance.
