An Update on Mac Support for Guild Wars 2
i plan to have both necro/engineer to 80 ASAP. but i only have 1 lvl 60 boost. so which one is easiest/fun/fast to level for below 60?
Necromancer is easier to level, but lets get something straight about necromancer. I'd recommend against leveling necromancer because its core class is rather dull to play and offers very little in what it can teach you in the game. For learning how a class works, Necromancer is a safe one to boost. I'd be more inclined to suggest leveling the engineer naturally even though it would be more difficult because its more fun. As for which one is faster? Well, Engineer is better at tagging mobs but Necromancer is faster.
So going through your criteria.
more fun? Subjective, but Engineer is more fun to level imo
Faster? About the same.
Which puts them at about even. Necromancer and Engineer are my two favorite classes. So I'll do what I can. I'll put some advantages and disadvantages for both. note, this is only their advantages and disadvantages while leveling.
Both classes have horrible core weapons and are a pain to level up. It really doesn't make much of a difference. For aoe, necro has wells and engineer has kits. Only mesmer is even worse to level up than both.
What is "fun to level up" for you? On eng you can pick a kit and level with that, on necro you equip minions and move on (obviously you can level however you want while equipping whatever you want, but I'd say that's just a minimal effort option). To level up you won't exactly farm trains of mobs anyways, but complete maps/events. You can do that with both, but necro will probably be easier, so I'd boost eng.
At least the engineer got the flamethrower so you can laugh maniacally every time you kill a mob.
