    I voted for Ranger. I have really enjoyed playing the class during the beta.

    Normally, I dislike the "ranger-class" and I also hated playing one in GW1, but playing one in GW2 is lots of fun :)

    Ranger it was my 2nd i was going Guardian but after the last stress test and the big old nerf bat hit the Guardian i know they where a littlt OP but mam did they have to hit the heals so hard in the stress test if you get hit by a boss's big hit the one that almost 1 hits you your self heal does not even give you back 1/2 the HP you just loss. the cut the self heal by 1/2 all the Profession self heal is 2X better now then the Guardian's

    still deciding between

    Sylvani Necro

    Charr Warrior

    Norn Thief


    can't make up my mind.

     Grouping in Old school mmo's: meeting someone at the bar and chatting, getting to know them before jumping into bed.  Current mmo's grouping: tinder.  swipe, hookup, hope you don't get herpes, never see them again.

    Elementalist and Ranger will be my main, but will most likely play all profession in spvp.

    I noticed that too. It's tripping me out. All my sensibilities are being challenged by how different these polls are.

    All the Weekends i was in a Thief, but changed my mind.

    I'll start with a Ranger now. Second will be Elementalist and third wil be Thief then.

    Actually really curious to see how this poll pans out.  Was thinking of making one myself.


    Here is the poll I put up immediately following BW3.:


    Will be interested to see how people's decisions have changed since that time.  At the time of my poll I selected Mesmer, but have since become much less certain, I'm guessing others have felt similar.  In my earlier poll the guardian was the most popular, while your poll is fairly new ranger is absolutly crushing, which is what I was expecting.

    I'm guessing a number of people are in a similar boat as me - they enjoyed numerous classes, following BW3 thought they had settled on their class, but, have since changed their minds or have become uncertain altogether..

    Actually right now Guardian is in last place...very

    Engineer here.

    Bombs, grenades, flamethrower and a huge crate packed with turrets and bandages.

    What more would you want?

  • CalvenCalven AarhusPosts: 151Member
    I'm not sure yet.. I'm most likely to roll a ranger, but as I haven't tried the game yet it may change.. Engineer looks pretty awesome as well.. And thief too... Sigh ;)

    playing Female norn ranger

    ironically enough when i voted in polls 2yrs ago norn and rangers were on the bottom of that list. I'm hoping kicking their ass in the betas and stress tests in spvp might have swayed a few votes.

  • xxxxxx1xxxxxx1 Austin, TXPosts: 93Member Uncommon

    Norn Warrior

    Human Thief

    Sylvari Ranger

    Human Guardian

    Sylvari Necromancer

    These will be my five mains at launch. What scares me the most is that I might play a lot more characters in GW2 than any other MMOs in the past. That just shows how good this game is.

    Pretty good number of votes so far - not too far off from what I was expecting to see.

    bet if thief had perma stealth it would top these charts:P

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall.

    Man, I'm still undecided... Warrior or Mesmer? Maybe playing both? I know will pick Sylvari female for Mesmer, but which race for Warrior...?

    Ranger for me. I like the nature based characters.

    Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

    I will probably make 1 of each class but my 2 mains are going to be a Norn Warrior and an Asura Thief. I like both classes and races and I can't decide which one I like more, so I'll just switch between the 2.


  • atticusbcatticusbc Posts: 1,071Member Uncommon

    see this is my problem (besides deciding which world... and races). i played to lvl 20 with a thief and i loved it more than anything else. especially pvp. then i played to 14ish with a warrior. wasn't so fun until lvl 10 then it became really fun. then went up to lvl 10 on a mesmer and while it was harder and was a bit less fun, i keep in mind that most classes seem to take off at lvl 10 and i got the strong impression that it would get really fun. last stress test i played 15 minutes of an ele and it was a blast.

    so. if all these classes are great WHAT DO I ROLL FIRST?!!?!?

    thinking thief though. apologies to my sig.

    edit: when i think about it though, i'd really like to get to know the mesmer.
