    It would be hard to make that selection any more Anti Zerg. I love it!

    Thank You for the {MEME}

    Medi scrapper.

    Almost no downtime in gameplay.

    Support Tempest close second.

  • My top 3 are

    1. Guardian - Core and Firebrand support roles
    2. Ranger - Soulbeast
    3. Mesmer - Mirage
  • Mine is a Mirage main. Yeah it’s the condi cancer build, but I use it to defend camps, teleport through a Zerg to be behind them, or when I know I am in a pickle use blink and jaunt to skidaddle out and warn our main force where the other main force is.

    All of them honestly. 3 Engi, 3 Rangers, 3 War, 2 Mez, 3 Nec, 1 Ele, 2 Guard, 2 Rev, 2 Teef. Most time played probably on the Engis. Roam, havoc with a splash of zerg surfing.

    Envy the Madman his musing when Death comes to make fools of us all.

  • But when this balance patch comes out will change everyone's characters to a certain extent.

  • ele, because of all the pretty colours and that nice dps

  • So what is your vote and your favorite professions to play?

    What an interesting poll. It tells us what the forumgoers' professions are. This can now be compared with the whole playerbase to show us how reflective of the average person the forum players are (I'll give you a clue, it's "not very reflective").

    Thief OP? Better nerf Scourge ... again.

    i shall represent the player base that doesn't play, the base of player that plays no more,, based on current player base vs previous player base, which ofc is based on player base numbers from years gone by, but basically i preferred when only base professions were a thing, I R not comin for ur base no more basically.

    Guardian.
    Reason: easy to play core + elite specs in any game mode. always relevant in any meta/group/comp. many different builds per game mode. aegis rocks. heavy armor best skins.

    I like my ranger because I'm to lazy to build a different class with complete gear.

    I bet human waifu is meta for both groups.

    People play games on their phones now. Figure it out.

    Polls are only as accurate as the number of people polled and which demographic is polled . This is only one area that is frequented mostly by WvW players and not so much PvP or PvE . If this poll was posted in all areas of the forum there could be a more accurate result.

  • Engineer
    Feels like it has a limitless variety of playstyles despite having an extremely limited choice of weapons, but makes up for it being a jack-of-all-trades with multiple kits and access to almost every combo field in the game.

    im guessin the op meant fav prof in wvw to play.. just a hunch, mind i could be wrong..

    this is where anet went wrong with all those polls years ago around hot release, letting everyone and their dog vote for wvw related updates - and now we are stuck with the stupidest map and rotation of maps, along with many pointless gimmicky implementations.

    ok...

    I usually play engineer. When no commander is around, I switch to holo-roamer.
    In zerg I go power-scrapper. When the zerg has trouble I go heal-scrapper.
    I also like scourge, herald and staff-daredevil, but I usually end up thinking about engineer skills/traits that I can't use then. ;)
