What is your favorite class visually?

I would say elementalists I know shocker but I am trying ranger right now and I do love the animations I just wished their moves look more magical.

If you want to find the secrets of the universe think in terms of energy frequency and vibration Nikola Tesla.

    The answer would vary heavily with which race they are, since most of the animations have noticeable differences between Race and Gender. Charr Daredevil Staff is a total trip.

  • I like Revenant myself. Black and red are my colors. The visual effects are distinguished, but they aren't overpowering and blinding like other classes.

  • Mesmer, but if Engineers could change the look of their kits/turrets then hands down Engineer.

    Not an easy question to answer. I have multiple favorite armour sets and looks across all the classes/armour weights...

    Revenant hands down has the coolest theme, and visuals ... however its execution has not been the smoothest.

    Power Revenant looks awesome (especially when it's raining legendary swords out of the sky), but in practice...

    I'm also fond of my human thief (all elite specs).

    I also love holosmith visuals - especially the elite skill with the holorifle.

    Rev -awesome
    Yolosmith-very interesting
    Salad - Mesmer- looks yummy, well, you know what i mean

    Thief, deadeye in particular. Spamming unload with HOPE looks great and the deadeye e-spec actually changes the projectiles and sounds of the rifle into some black / red energy "beam" which fits with many of the asuran based rifles like the inquest mark II skin.

    Guardian. The light bursts from their attacks are really pretty.

    Actually this is about class alone, this can also be particle effects and not just animations its a universal question but yes I know some races have different animations.

    Not about armor justs just abilities.

    For me it would be Necromancer. I've always liked that sort of Dark, Spiritual theme they've got going on. Plus green is my favorite color followed by Turquoise.

    Gotta hand it to my main, Warrior then. Most of the skills are kinda cliché such as the spin-to-win moves. The physical skills, however, are something I haven’t seen in a MMORPG before.

    Kicking, charging and even headbutting your enemy isn’t particularly flashy in the same sense that the more magical classes’ abilities are loaded with effects but....

    ...kitten if they don’t sell the physical fighter imagery just right.

    I really wish Headbutt was a Core Elite because it is probably my favorite ability in the game.

    I agree I tried warrior before and they where allot of fun, I also hear they are misjudged in this game a hard to master class, they are not as easy as people say, atleast thats what I hear.

    Scourge, Ventari Rev, and S/D Weaver. Special mention goes to Ranger WH.

    Healing orbs are a mistake. Please delete them ANet.

    Necro! Green + black if my fav color combo, and slapped on top of life-draining, horror summoning, plague spreading and terror inducing class is just plain win no matter how you slice it!

    Warrior isn’t “easy” per say, but rather they are simple (as in the opposite of complex) and straightforward. Which is a double edged sword because it also means they are limited. They don’t have the “fancy tricks” like most other classes such as the Mesmer or Thief.

    This means that you have to be real good at working within the limitations of the class to do well - especially in PvP where the other more advanced clssses can run circles around an inexperienced Warrior.
