So, I'll be subscribing to VG after Christmas and I have time to play. I've played at release and beta, but didn't really play too far (only to level 30). I have done a trial+subbed before SOE got hacked, but I never got my account back. Not a big deal since the highest guy was only level 15.
Anyway, I was wondering what class would fit. I mostly solo (due to my job, that sometimes I can play for long periods, other times I'm afk every 15 minutes)...I do love grouping though, and I make a great healer. Not much into tanking and DPS is always a lot of fun. Weekends are usually the times I can group with people
So, classes that sound like a lot of fun....
Cleric -despite killing slow, I heard they make AWESOME healers, but also, can solo very well too...saw one post saying that he soloed part of a raid dungeon (POTA?) or something... as a Cleric. I would probably do really well with this class, since I'm better at healing than tanking.
Paladin - This class looks fun and I've always liked Paladin classes...even though I'm not big into tanking for the most part, Paladins are the exception. I generally really like Paladin classes. Don't know much about VG Paladins, though. I assume tanks are always needed.
Druid/Necromancer/Psionicist - All three look like fun, and I know Necromancers can solo pretty well. And Druids look fun because they use nature magic (I am really into nature based classes), not sure how Druids do in groups or solo, though. And if Psionicists are anything like Illusionist/Coercer in EQ2...I would probably really like it.
Ranger - A mix of ranged/melee is always fun...not sure how they do in solo and group
Classes I'm NOT interested in
Warrior/Rogue/(Bard)-unless things changed, they are a grouping only classes...unless I want to fight 2/3 dots the whole time I'll make a Bard just to group with. However, he won't be my main. Bards are tons of fun in groups.
Disciple -Not a fan of martial arts based classes to be honest...plus despite being the best soloers, I heard they are very common
Dread Knight - Would rather be a Paladin
Blood Mage -I tried this, and while unique...I got one to level 16 and found it REALLY hard. Not that it is a bad thing, but I prefer more relaxing classes
Sorceror - Would rather be a Druid or Necromancer or Psionicist
Shaman - Not really too interested in this one, personally...I did get one to level 16, but maybe it wasn't high enough, but...while nothing wrong with the class...it didn't click with me, don't know why.

WoW already does WoW good.
PvPers that gank newbies, are carebears. They don't want a challenge (like a carebear), they just want easy mode (like a carebear) and a no challenge combat (like a carebear).
