What's your favorite class in mmorpg game?

    When I play with friends/guild whatever I go DPS range, archer or whatever.

    If I go solo, I go with someone who has good dmg and can be tanky at the same time with good sustain.

    I love character with fast movement with good mobility.

    In any game where you can move while you use an attack: Thief. In games where mobility is limited or people just stand in the same spot the entire combat except in raids I feel that the class really doesn't work for me though.

    In those games I prefer to play a ranger or in some cases a berserker.

    I prefer to play Knight type classes(note: not Paladins!). DPS tank supports. The best class would be Knight from WAR. Also, Chanter from Aion(just Equip mace + shield for DPS tank mode <3 ).<br />
    Also CC Monsters such as GW 1 Mesmer, Vanguard psionicist, DnD Enchantment Sorceror etc.

    From the lore standpoint I also like Elemental casters(only if they access to every element! As much as I love Water or Earth, the other two are necessary as well) and various Azyr-like casters(it's difficult to explain...just google it)

    Basically anything that requires half a brain to play. If the gameplay comes down to 1-2-1-3-1-1-2-3-1-... that just kills the class on the spot for me. Unfortunately, this is exactly what the Healing comes down to, so it's the aspect of any game that I'm least keen about.

    I like all role but my favorite role is healer, and in all mmoprpg, i prefer Cleric in Rift.

    I usually play hybrids with the key element being complexity. The more complex the class the more I enjoy it. Examples are (old school) Wow druid where changing forms gives entirely new power setups, Wow Warlock due to the added complexity of using pets and their additional powers and Lotro Lore Master for much the same reasons. My main frustration though is that many games offer the ability to play hybrid (usually dps+heal is what I like ... I NEVER play tanks as they bore me silly). but the game itself has no roll for a hybrid.


    Oddly though my favorite class (independent of game which I may not have enjoyed nearly as much) is Gunslinger/Sniper from Swtor. Not a hybrid at all and really a sci-fi archer class but it was fun as hell. It offered a positional strategy not duplicated by pretty much any other mmo and those that tried (such as engineer and the mirrored class from WAR) failed terribly. Who ever designed this class in Swtor should win a Class Design Award of the decade.


    Even though I enjoy open skill systems, especially in more sandbox games, I never really bond as much with my character as class based systems ... as much as that irks me to admit it.

    You stay sassy!

    Healer. Started as Druid raid-heal in WoW, and it was like that ever since. Currently playing Biotech in Firefall.

    A ranged physical class.  I hate magic and I hate pets.  I just want to shoot stuff from a distance, a true sniper class.

    I'd like to be artillery, ranged and hidden away, but hitting like a truck. Slow and vulnerable, but when well deployed and protected, is a cornerstone of offense. Maybe I'm looking to play an RTS or shooter haha in an MMO.

    I love the ranged classes, the classes that deal a ton of damage but cannot take damage, it keeps me on my toes and forces me to play strategically.

    My favorite class is schooling griefers in PvP.

    I give a 101 on that every chance I get, every game I play, especially while I'm starting out and somebody griefs me.

    AoC had Great classes. Herald of Xotli or Dark Templar.


    Swtor I Play almost all of them but prefer Warrior (Jugg and Marauder) and Assassin.


    I liked the Agent in Anarchy Online.

    Guardian! A two handed wielder class at Rohan! balanced, at  the same time, since dagger type is less 30% of its attack power to avoid OPnesss.

    The heavily armored class with a whiff of magic use.
