I'm picking up GW2 again... I have played on and off a few times. Have a 36 guardian and a 35 thief that I have absolutely no idea how to play any more. So I'm re-rolling. I have HoT but not PoF (though I won't rule PoF out).
Those were my highest level characters, so just like the last time I asked this question I'm still a relative newbie.
I am going to play mostly solo and really just want to experience the full range of open world PVE content.
I may delve into dungeons/raids/fractals at some point, but don't want a class for those purposes. Won't touch PVP in any way.
I'm not entirely closed off to any classes in particular, but here are the ones I am more drawn to: Warrior, Guardian, Rev, Ranger (but not druid)
I am not going to level skip. I want to play 1- hopefully 80 the old fashioned way.
I'm looking for engaging play, but nothing overly complicated with all sorts of complex rotations. And I hate being squishy (which I know guards technically are, but having played one to 36 I know they really aren't...).
So what I mean by that is: I don't want to have to weapon swap 45 times on a trash fight. Maybe a big time fight, sure. But basic play being relatively simple is a big time plus. Rev looks fun but the swapping around seems complicated.
If anyone thinks I should provide more info, I'd be glad to. Just looking for a little assistance.
