    None! Back in the day when DAoC launched I loved the class system, because for that time it was good.

    DAoC's classes were static with 100% defined roles. Yes, I am talking Vanilla DAoC as I quit right when the first expansion came out, so all the crazy stuff that happend in expansion is foreign to me.

    Today I am  a different gamer, I don't like to be locked in a 100%-pre defined role anymore, like pick class A and you will always be healer and nothing else, class B is always tank and nothing else.

    Rift had a really good idea when it came to the class system - you pick a base archetype (warrior, healer, mage, rogue) but each one had multiple spec possibilites as far as melee/range dps, support, heals, mitigation/evasion tank etc....

    And you could swap specs on the fly between fights - very good class system imo (far from perfect) but great baseline.

     

    If CU has a deep class system with lots of options as far as specs the game has a solid chance of keeping players for a long time, as  the class system specialization should be a meta-game in itself.

    If it's a static class system like vanilla DAoC - ouch, pass for me.

    If I had to pick my favorite class it would be Valewalker, hands down.  I am with DMKano though, after getting used to the ridiculous flexibility of Rift it would be hard as hell to go back to a single spec and role.  I mean, I nuke on my cleric and warrior and I can heal on my rogue.  It is pretty awesome.

    I don't think you are going to get what you want from CU. Choice matters! Though you can always invest the time and have multiple toons.

    Agreed! It was not my chosen class, though I dabbled in it, and creating an elemental pet army had its charms.

    Friar or Valewalker. Both were fairly unique in that they didn't fit neatly into their role. Friar was a healer, but with serious melee-DPS potential. Valewalker was a DPS, with outrageous defense for a clother wearer--the bane of all arrow users.
