    While ArcheAge has so many "classes" as to be nearly classless some of them are quite cool. I played a "Shadowbane" healer for a while. The healing tree, defense tree, and CC tree. It's a PvP class for sure because you are giving up a lot of healing output but it's a great healer for PvP.

    In group fights everyone hops on you and you have the defense to survive until they run out of CC. As soon as you are up you use banshee's wail to fear every enemy around you and heal back up up to full while they run around feared.

    About the hardest to kill character I've ever played. Also very satisfying in boat fights. Was a few fun incidents where I jumped onto an enemy galleon and feared half the crew into the water or bubbled people as they were gliding over to board us.

    I really liked the original "Chloromancer" in Rift.
    Dealing a great dmg while healing the party was just great fun!!!

    Squid Herder hands down.   Being able to jump into your mounts mouth for protection was just great all around.

    City of Heroes: Tough call as I have played several favorites over the eight years that I've played (Martial Arts/Regeneration Scrapper, Kinetic/Willpower Scrapper, Ice/Electric Blaster, Storm/Water Blast Defender, Electric/Energy Stalker), but my favorite has to be my Illusion/Dark/Fire Controller. She had everything: solid damage, several pets, decent control, a powerful heal (with a second coming from another pet), and a powerful tool that not only slowed down enemies, but also increased the damage of me and my pets (Tar Pit).

    Guild Wars 2: Mesmer

    DAoC- Thane

    WoW- Protection Paladin, Fury warrior and Death Knight.

    SWTOR- Sith Warrior/Vengence Juggernaut 

    Tera- Slayer (especially at launch), Lancer and Berzerker.

    Blade & Soul: Assassin

    Neverwinter: Rogue

    GW2- Thief and Warrior

    Rift- SpellBlade (wish this class was more ubiquitous)

    Global Agenda - Assault Class and Recon class

    These are the classes I had the most fun in the mmos I can think off the top of the my head.  There are several other mmos i've played but can't recall any classes that really stood out.

    I really enjoyed playing a Monk in EQ.  My paladin is still my heart, but for just pure fun, monk.

    That seems like a very standard warrior class. Curious what made it stand out to you.

    The truth is that I really enjoy the rotation for Veng Jug more than I do any of the Mara Specs.  I find it a lot more fun.

      During vanilla having Heavy armor actually meant something ( just what gear you could wear etc.) so I also used to like that

    Hmm, favorite class...

    Well, my most FAVORITE character class overall is the Mastermind from City of Villains

    However, my most PLAYED character class would be my Barbarian Shaman from EQ

    DAOC - Minstrel, Skald, Therigist

    You liked speedy groups? :)

    (My main was a Theurgist as well)
    I liked controlling the speed.

    Minstrel was a great utility class. Could stealth, climb keep walls, buff, stun, crowd control and lets not forget twisting.

    Skald was a fast, yet durable finisher, with a 1-2 insta damage DD spell combo that let me take countless foes down who were near death and trying to escape.

    My favorite thing to do with a Theuri was send a horde of ice pets after defenders who would peek out of their keeps and watch my "pets" follow them back inside to finish them off.

    There were many other classes I enjoyed in DAOC, my Infiltrator in Darkness Falls stealther wars, my Hunter in the Shadowclan, even my Paladin who was great for PVE tanking, even if a bit useless for PVP.

    Can't forget my necromancer and vampyr, two classes I used to powerlevel characters for myself and many others.

    I really loved DAOC, can you tell? ;)

    When it comes to classes, DAoC was spot on..

    I had many many favourites in that world...
    When it came to speed, i would have to choose Bard, a very very diverse class...

    But also some of the later classes like reaver and bonedancer where spot on, but my favorite class must have been the mentalist, playing with charmed pets was incredible much fun.... also sorcerer was spot on...

    And the midgard healer... best groupclass ever..  Yes, there was a lot of goodness in this game when it came to classes...

    Me too. I also loved pairing up for a minstrel in RVR. Speed and bubbles... what's not to love?

    Now we have 6 pages of this and it has been consistent.

    We all have our favored games, but the ones that provided the best vision of what your role in the world is, the ones with the strongest character classes, were all old games.

    Vanguard had some of the best classes I have played in my 17 years of playing MMO's

    Vanguard -
    Bloodmage - By far my favorite class to date. Nuking, healing through siphoning your own life, healing through nuking, nasty dots,  powerful bufs, etc, etc.  Most enjoyable class I have played. 
    Disciple - Another insanely fun class

    Everquest -
    Enchanter -  The double edged sword class.  You could be the most powerful class in the game and yet, the weakest.  The only class to date that has a risk vs reward factor built into it.  I could clear planes of power zones with charmed mobs that I buffed to hell an back but was insanely dangerous.  Risk vs reward.  Only class to this date to have this.
    Magician - The ONLY pet class to this very day that the PET does the bulk of damage for the class, with insane pet buffs, summon weapons/armor/effects to benefit your pet.  How a pet class should be. I still don't understand how mmo developers cannot replicate and build on this concept.  I am dying for a strong pet class but cant find any :(
