Yeah, it's another one of those threads where someone needs help deciding what class/job/role/etc they should be playing. I got both expansions (one gifted, one bought) so I should have access to everything Profession-wise. I'm not huge on PvP but will probably end up trying it since the most things I hear about this game involve PvP/WvW but I'll be looking mostly at the other types of content that this game offers for what I want my Profession to be. The reason I need help picking is cause there are 5 character slots and 9 Professions and then each Profession seems to have a boatload of builds.
So onto the nitty-gritty part of it all. Right now I'm playing Final Fantasy XIV and with the new release of 5.0, two of the classes I played over there just don't do it for me anymore. Namely AST and BRD for those that also play that. In every MMO I play I tend to gravitate to the more support oriented classes which often enough seems to combine with the healer classes so that's more or less what I'm looking for here. If you've played XIV then you know how DPS obsessed the game is and I'm looking to get away from that along with a set rotation if at all possible.
The bullet-point version would be like
-Focused on healing/support
-Preferably little to no set rotation
-As far away from DPS-centric as can be
also, not a huge fan of pet/minion classes but I can deal with them (looking at you XIV's SCH)
