I got my warrior to level 17. I was playing an Ele till level 12 but I really HATED how the camera was stuck and I couldn't see what I was doing kiting so I switched to a warrior. if they fix the camera I might go back to the ele but if they don't warrior is for me.

I have a level 25 warrior, 15 guardian, and 16 elementalist. I got up to 5 with thief before deleting and I quit with ranger and engineer by level two. Couldn't stand it. Out of all the classes I obviously prefer warrior the best, but elementalist was pretty fun. Guardian just didn't do anything the way I was hoping, but it wasn't absolutely miserable like ranger and engineer. Still wouldn't go back. Mesmer holds absolutely no interest to me, but necro might be interesting. The thing I found was that warrior was by far the easiest to solo with, which is great for me since I can't make friends. Elementalist was second best at that, but the damage output from staff was low enough that skales and bosses were almost impossible without help.

But seriously, greatsword warrior is freaking sweet.

hmm interesting feedback. a lot of people like warrior...that's probably why I haven't played it...seems like everyone plays it... and the fact that it's the easiest profession is kind of a turn off....but i might try it next beta anyways. tongue.gif

I thought ranger was really easy tbh...it was ok...not super exciting, but very well thought out (or perhaps just easy?). I got it to about level 15...and my bear pet could tank man...it was just so easy sitting back and killing stuff...i really didn't have to move much unless there were multiple mobs. Necro was kinda tough starting off for me...but once you get minions that profession looks like god-mode in solo PVE. I only got to level 5 or something. Elem has been a tough but fun class for me...but i used staff most of the time. I'm sure with daggers it a little easier in normal PVE. Guardian seems ok...I only got to level 5 myself...before time ran out...a LOT of defense...damage output seems a little low...but no idea really. My buddy played mesmer and really like it...he got really good with using clones/phantoms. He would just let them kill mobs for him while he took care of others. I haven't tried thief yet at all...I was never into playing rogues...sooo...but maybe ill try it next beta.

lol - why can't you make friends?

If you want to play Ranger, learn how to kite. I've soloed Champion level enemies with my ranger, no death. :/

I don't know how you can stand to kite things with the camera in the locked position. I didn't try the ranger I was playing an ele, but still I could do it but I just HATED not being able to see what I was attacking.

It was a bit awkward trying to make the full circle every once and a while, but nothing I couldn't handle. Took a good 10-15 minutes though. tongue.gif

I don't make friends because I hate being a bother on people, even on the internet. Do I invite to party? What if he's in the middle of something? Nah, I can solo this.

And I was kiting plenty with my ele since she's so fragile. I just tried ranger and got tired of it that fast, I think it was just because I didn't like figuring pets out. Anyways, when I was kiting I always either held right-click to strafe with a-d or used q-e to strafe with the locked forward camera. I thought that was pretty typical in MMOs. It did make it kinda hard to spam 1 while strafing left though.

I know the game is built around NOT trinity, but I seriously miss being the healbot. I played DDO with my IRL D&D friends and man playing favored soul and healing everyone like a baws had to be the most rewarding feeling I've ever had in an online game. The water ele, even with staff, had such minimal healing that I felt like I hadn't contributed at all. There were a few times I got some +Regeneration hearts popping up but I don't know what they did or how much it helped. It must've been some kind of combo field, so I figured I should keep doing it. And the guardian, I wanted to tank like a hoss but most veteran/champion bosses are strong enough to tear me a new one in a few shots so I couldn't sit on the front line for very long. And then I had to run back and heal but there's such a tiny amount of healing available in the game I just had to wait. It sucked.

That happened once on my warrior with one POS svanir shaman champion. I was over double-levelled for it and he kept one-shotting me with a frost breath thing. It didn't have a telegraph and even if I was mid-block with the shield, he one-shot me. It was the biggest pile of bullcrap because my melee character was completely useless. I know they're all about flexibility, but that one boss made my entire character completely invalid and it was the crappiest feeling for a game to just shut me off like that.

I think the game has a high focus on ranged combat, mainly because IRL, ranged combat is king. You break immersion to some extent by making melee able to up in your face all the time without thinking about damage to themselves. Ranged combat is more realistic, and I think they're trying to cater more to the RP community with this game.
