What class should I pick for an alt?

I've been loving my herald. But I want a little change of pace to keep things fresh. So what class should I choose to level as an alt? I want a class that has some complexity and maybe similar feeling to Rev.

  • Sounds like you'll want an elementalist. Particularly a dagger ele or a weaver. Bit of a warning, though: they're harder to play.

    Mesmer or elementalist.

    If your team wins it's because of everyone else. If your team loses, blame the thief.
    ranger is OP but holo is more OP so its fine
    Why do this matter at all, you have people asking you why play so bad as fractal god?
    If they would pull that kitten on me, i would sue instantly. And i have enough time and money to finish that.
    Balance? More like a bunch of random nerfs done by interns.

    A good d/d ele is a pleasure to watch and to play. Strong too but perhaps the OP can tell us if he mostly plays PVE or PVP?

    i tried nearly all classes yet, i can recommend that, since u learn how every class works. generally, i find Warrior, Guardian, Rev, Necro, Ele by far the most entertaining. i barely play my ranger but use her as a Bank slot, my Mesmer only once i built a chrono.

    Ele is definitely versatile and a fun profession. The elite specs are also very diverse and fun and can change your playstyle a lot. Ele is generally a bit harder though.
    There is also a guardian. Guardians can do everything well and have a place in all content types usually with several iterations (dps; condi or power, boon support, heal).
