    Ranger and Engineer for me. No clue which will be the main, but in no real hurry anyway. I will probably level them both and hit 80 within a few days of one another.

    Ranger is most well rounded class in GW2 - period.

    Its great for PVE , Great for WvW , and not shabby in sPvP

     

    You have AOE almost as good as Ele

    You have single target melee almost as good as Warrior

    You can place 2 combo fields and use them yourself ! (Only one that can do that)

    You are good soloist and very wanted in groups

    And you have a tank...

     

    Its almost eezy mode class

    Erm... I have fun w/ the ranger too, but almost none of what you posted is actually true.

    - Elementalist has way more AoE than the ranger gets (on almost every weapon).

    - Warrior has much higher melee burst than ranger gets on any of the weapons (especially w/ the greatsword or axe)

    - Almost every class can lay down multiple combo fields on themselves, as well as multiple finishers. I think the warrior is the only one that can only do 1 combo field (with the longbow).

    - Every class is good solo, and I haven't found any class but the guardian who is ever specifically asked for.

    Don't get me wrong, ranger is a pretty solid class, but they are fairly average all across the board. It's what makes them good. They have 'good enough' in most areas, and they have a pet to help makeup the difference.

    Every class I tried bored me after a couple levels...until I tried thief. It's a very fun class.

    Not sure what I'll try later, maybe a necro

    I do like my engineer (main of sorts) but I also fancy my ranger, thief, mesmer, guardian and necro. I haven't played my warrior and ele yet beyond level 2 so can't talk about those. I hope I'll hate them as it's confusing enough as it is.

     

    In other words, no, I haven't found my one true profession yet.

    Warrior, thief, guardian, engineer AND ranger. I have already created the first three and I plan to create the last two soon. All different races.

    I really wanted to like the mesmer but dps is so low :(

    but otherwise they are a fun class

    Thief all day erryday.

    I love flying around the screen with my Ebony skinned Asura. 

    LDB>LDB>dodge>steal>LDB>dodge>HS   best mobility class ive ever played (aside from the war in wow during cata before they got nerfed)

    Just so much fun to play. I havent even tried another class yet. I dont think I will either.

  • ShakyMoShakyMo BradfordPosts: 7,207Member
    Mes

    Quite like warrior - using ranged. And there's some fun self harm builds you can do with necro

    Wasn't keen on ranger, shortbow and great sword were fun enough, other weapons a bit meh (although warhorn is nice off hand)
  • DraemosDraemos Antartica, AKPosts: 1,469Member
    Engineer  (w/ multiple kits) is a lot of fun, Elementalist too.  The other classes are extremely boring, they have only a handfull of usable skills are are extremely generic.
  • ShakyMoShakyMo BradfordPosts: 7,207Member
    Oh for pure fun and giggles. I highly recommend aura warrior with 2 handed hammer.

    This reminds of the first time I played bard on EQ1, it was sheer genius. I was never the same after that.

    LONG LIVE DA SAPPER!

    Very fun class, wish the DPS was better but hey fun > dps

    Its only low the first 10-15 levels till you can start putting a decent amount of points into traits. Memser just keeps getting better and better imo.

    Plus you are nigh unkillable with skills like blink and decoy plus i run staff or greatsword+sword/focus. Sword is great dps plus a distortion while focus has the most fun ability i've seen yet, Temporal Curtain. Once you master it you find it amazing in pvp and pve.

    Mesmer is a blast to play.

    I'm loving my dual dagger (+ staff for weapon swap) Necro right now.  It took me a while since I loved my Asura Warrior in BWE3, but once I discovered the dual dagger Necro, I'm feeling pretty damn awesome....and I haven't even unlocked Lich Form yet!

     

    My first alt is a Warrior which I still love and my second will be probably a Thief, unless they end up nerfing it too much within the next month or so.

     

    Watching my wife play her Ele has given me a new respect for that profession.  My oldest kids Mesmer is pretty cool while my youngest's Ranger unfortunately seems a little same old, same old.  That's to bad because I was planning on a Ranger for my first alt, originally.

     

    Anyway, my list would go like this (so far):

     

    Necro

    Warrior

    Thief

    Elementalist

    Mesmer

    Ranger

     

    I have no interest in either Guardian or Engineer so won't even bother.

    You want me to pay to play a game I already paid for???

    Be afraid.....The dragons are HERE!

    I was very surprised at how fun and different the Warrior turned out to be.  Very versatile, I think.  Easy to mold to your particular playstyle.  Thief is a load of fun too (at least in the first two BWEs it was) so hopefully that hasn't changed much, and won't change by the time I'm ready to play my 3rd char.

    funny i had no interest in guardian at all throughout all the BWEs.. finaly got around to rolling one.. just hit 15 with it and its in my top 3 favorite classes

    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. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    Psh, everything is ur fav class. You change your mind faster than a... oh wait, you are a girl. Nevermind...

    Warrior because I like being the center of attention, and by center of attention, I mean every mob focusing me first... but rly I don't, but they won't stop focusing me, like I'm cursed or something I swear. But versatility, damage and tankyness is nice.
