I've played all 8 classes now and also rerolled 4 more times since RELEASE, heh. Been playing alot.
Really wanted to like thief but I just felt really limited in options at any one time. They have quite a few different builds you can use but the actual playstyle in PVE is really boring...with your best bet usually being to just go sword/pistol, running up to stuff, and using pistol #5 then doing 1, 1, 1, repeat. It can be fun jumping around with heartseeker on dagger/dagger or dagger/pistol but the initiative system will have you doing the same thing everyfight most of the time, generally with only 2-3 buttons.
Thief shortbow is a little more fun but after a while you get tired of screwing with cluster bomb trying to get it to explode right before it hits the ground. If there's any lag forget about that one.
This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

I just love my thief.
The other classes kinda feels slow without that shadow signet.
I was dead set on Mesmer for release, with an ele alt....then I tried a thief by accident. I will never be the same again. An actual melee class with REAL strategy and different playstyles. Truly amazing. I hear Warrior is also as surprising.
Engineer, boom headshot
But i like soemthign about all of them
I'm really enjoying my mesmer. Tricky at times, but rewarding, and Iove their style - illusions, tricks, interrupts etc.
Tried guardian too - effective, for sure, but not as fun for me as my mes. Might try engineer next, as that was fun on the betas.

Interesting. There are certainly quite a few of these, but I also see a lot of warriors and guardians -- at least as many as I do Engineers.
I see a lot of mid-level & high level Elementalist, Guardians, Rangers & Mesmers - So I am surprised with the poll since those classes seem to be the leasted favored.

"Your favorite class so far?"
Warrior for me, just loving the class although I'm having a little trouble deciding on a second weapon set, I'm using the Greatsword as my main.
I've tried dual Axes, Sword n Board & Rifle love em all
So far I tested a few classes. Tested Ele, Mesmer, Warrior, Guard and Engineeer. Like my Mesmer a lot
Played: Guild Wars, AoC, Lotro, CoH, Warhammer, Tabula Ras, Spellborn, Second Life, Rift, Aion, Tera. Playing: Guild Wars 2, WoT
Originally posted by The_Korrigan Really having a blast with my warrior. At 47, I'm specced 20 defense/ 17 arms, with emphasis on defensive stats for the gear, and I'm quite hard to kill. Emphasis on bleeds and crits is fun to play too. Using 5 signets for PVE (+200 precision at my level... =P).
Yeh I'm set up with the 5 signets and the trait that adds precision for each passive signet. With that plus dual wielding a sword main hand and axe off hand I feel like a motherscratchin weedwacker with multiple adds, specially during events. It's fun having a steady 80%+ crit rate that can ramp up to 100%. Dual strike + Whirling Axe = amazing amounts of damage that also fills the adrenaline gage to almost max, which allows to finish up with Flurry for anything left standing. Rilfe for anything range of course.

I'm liking the Greatsword w/ Rifle for range, Having a blast!
Yea... that signet trait is crazy....
Its actually made it less fun for me because every other build I've tried just doesn't match up.
Little forum boys with their polished cyber toys: whine whine, boo-hoo, talk talk.
I don't really like GW2 overall.. however the one class that just has me coming back for nibbles is the engineer. The various kits and omgawd mines.. give me joy.
LONG LIVE DA SAPPER!
Engineer. Lighting stuff on fire & blowing it up is just too much fun, plus there's some fun combos.
Rolled a ranger, realized they couldn't use rifles (seriously, WTF?) and deleted it.
Elementalist is too squishy for my tastes (and in this game, that's saying something).
Haven't put much time in on my warrior yet, and also haven't tried any other classes.
