    I definitely agree that we've got lots of time to choose a profession and that the thief improvements may definitely skew the data

    Engineer all the way! Mechanical contraptions + Guns + Extreme Versatility = WIN. I also loved Engineer in WAR(how much one could regarding its' utterly dismal performance).

    Besides that I fancy Guardians(Paladins! Yes!).

    I detest the very idea of Necromancer(though I do love good DoT).

    I have to say that I hope in open beta that all our professions hopes and dreams will be answered

    I like the idea of Necro. :)

    My play order will probably be elementalist, thief, engineer, ranger, warrior, mesmer.   The guardian and necro are the only 2 that don't particularly interest me at the moment.  

  • ZhaitanZhaitan Boston, MAMember Posts: 2

    I'll most likely have a ranger as my main, and then try out the warrior or mesmer.

  • I was just contemplating my characters and their names.

     

    For sure I'm playing a Guardian, but Norn or Human?  Sheesh it is so hard to choose.

     

    I am also playing an Elementalist - probably Sylvari

     

    Next is Thief or Engineer - more because I want dual pistols - not sure I can hack either class as I don't do well with traps or pets in other games and I can't twitch.  So having a tough time deciding on this one.

     

    Mesmer - I'm hesitating on this one just because we haven't seen much about it.  It's real kewl looking just not sure I can hack it since it's close to having pets.

     

    Warrior - This is fall back profession depending on how the others work out - I would like one character of each race so five total.

     

    Necromancer and Ranger - neither one interests me.

     

    Now which one becomes my main?  I never know - every game I start approximately the same number of alts and every time my main is usually a big surprise - and hardly ever any of my first creations.

    Ranger all the way!

    Then to Mesmer.....

    shoot might even try an elementalist.

    Honestly, hard to say! All the professions are interesting. :)

    ASURA Guardian! Those animations were insanely hilarious

    Uhh... what?

    Planning on making a Ranger my main. As for alts: elementalist, mesmer, warrior, necro. Might try engineer, not so interested in thief or guardian but I'll probably try them eventually though, just to try them and make sure they don't interest me. First character I'm making though is going to be a ranger :)

    Do you want some cheese with that whine? :)

    I was just thinking about how crazy an asura with a greatsword on their shoulder looks

    Strange to me to see Mesmer so high, but I guess people like the pure magician type.

  • GrayGhost79GrayGhost79 Webster, MAMember Posts: 4,775 Uncommon

    Asuran Engineer hands down for me.

  • rykim86rykim86 winnipeg, MBMember Posts: 236

    I'll start off with a guardian first.  I always start off with the rough and tumble, right in your face profession to get a feel for the game.

    Then probably a mesmer.

  • Ambros123Ambros123 Neverneverland, TNMember Posts: 877

    Engineer all the way, will bring nostalgia of my times with Arcanum... best... game... ever.  At least for me.

    After that... hmmm Guardian since I honest think that is what a tank should really be, something that protects allies and not a "ohhh look at me! look at me!!!" (yes yes I know all classes can support)

     

  • FlawSGIFlawSGI Woodstock, GAMember Posts: 1,379 Uncommon

     I usually play warriors for my first character because I love being in the mix. I do love that the poll looks decently spread out. Mesmir is high but to be expected with it being the newest reveal and some people who really liked them in the first. Getting clooooooser.......

    RIP Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan and Paul Gray.

    Lol... so many mesmers.

     

    They are just overhyped because we have been in a news drought for so long then we just randomly got a huge news drop (mesmer release)..... Don't get me wrong, i think mesmers are awesome and i am keen to play one, but i think that a lot of people are choosing mesmer in the poll because they were released a couple days ago =P

    Not really, it's because Mesmer was a signature Guild Wars profession... and we all kinda *knew* they'd be in GW2 in some shape or form, we just waited for ANet's confirmation.

    Nature without Technology is little more than animals running about.
    Nature without Magic is without wonder or miracle.
    .........
    Magic without Technology is fantasy.
    Magic without Nature is formless and useless.
    .........
    Technology without Nature is application without understanding.
    Technology without Magic is repetitious and uninventive.

     I totally agree that we kinda new it was coming so its not really a surprise, although, I have to say maybe 5-2% may be from the hype lol

    Don't worry.

    When we finally get to play, at the first sign of complicated mechanics and what not, people will reroll in a flash.

    I will play mesmer just like in Guild Wars. It was always my main and fovourite profession. 

     

    I didn't choose it because

    When I first heard of the Asura being playable in GW2 some four or five years ago I decided I was going to play an Asuran Mesmer first and foremost. That stands to this day.
