  • Thief

    Though I have several characters (and all of them are a different class), I always seem to gravitate back to Thief. I just enjoy the tactical gameplay and the fact you have to think on your feet to do well with it. The mobility of the class is also an attractive aspect, though playing Deadeye you lose a lot of that (strangely, I do enjoy playing DE in spite of that fact).

  • Guardian

    I'm biased with most play time being on the Guardian. I've enjoyed the versatility of the class. I was playing "my way" for quite a long time, which was heal-tank based. It wasn't terribly efficient for my solo play, but when I was playing a map event, I really liked the support role that I could provide. I play Power DH now, but I'm still learning. My DPS is far better, so I feel like I contribute more to that goal. In a game that doesn't focus on the holy trinity of MMORPGs, versatile play can be fun, rewarding and appreciated.

    Let's be neighbours.

  • Mesmer

    I remember when I started with my Mesmer I would die all the time it's like I needed to be in the party to even do anything. But I got used to it and I learn all the skills and traits it was so much easier also I think because Mesmer's are magical and mysterious. <3

    I tend to float around characters. Some weeks I'll feel utterly mesmerising, while other times I'll feel like I need to bring out the LIGHTNING WHIP! And, of course, I can't forget my adorable pets. Oh! and I can't forget to polish my sniper rifle from time to time...

    I do envy people who have a "favourite class", but I tend to find different professions can just do things better, and it saves the time and effort of trusting someone else to fill the role. A half kitten attempt is always better than none, I always say!

    Mesmer

    My first class. Magic and archery was always my favorite to use and I liked the uniqueness of the mesmer. I've seen elementals and necromancers before. And I've played plenty of archer types over the years. So why not try something completely new? I struggled at first, but kept at it. Even boosting her to 80. I knew I was willing to keep learning. Plus the effects were just gorgeous~ I love how everything shatters in butterflies.

    Best of all, however, is confusing your friends. I got commanded one time during a Vinewraith champion to attack the bulbs. They were looking at an illusion while the real one was at that moment attacking a bulb. "Your illusions are everywhere!"

    Every time I see a mesmer in the story, I just love them more. All the cool stuff they can do. I like to headcanon my three use their illusions to send messages to other people close by. My first one is a chronomancer and I still use her for nearly everything. 'Specially in groups. I love spreading that alacrity~ She's also the classic purple/white theme which I always found extremely pleasing as the mesmer's colors.

    Mains :: Gwenyna (Sylvari Chronomancer) and Nyniendha (Sylvari Reaper)

  • Biff.5312Biff.5312 Member ✭✭✭✭

    The truth is that I love all of them. I like variety of gameplay so I switch back and forth between toons frequently, but every time I play a class I haven't played in a while I really dig it. I didn't like revenant at first, but that's because I was playing it in centaur mode. I've since learned better. So yeah - I have like 25 toons now, so that I can enjoy every playstyle possible without having to switch gear around...

  • Tachenon.5270Tachenon.5270 Member ✭✭✭

    Tanker. Blaster. Er, I mean, ritualist! Uh. Well, I don't really have a favorite profession in GW2. I've probably clocked the most time on my thief, but that's more because of inertia than anything else. As in, been there, done that, might as well keep going. Took her through HoT and LS3. Not sure what happened with LS2, as she's still not been to Dry Top. I hear it's really lovely this time of year. Um. I really enjoyed my second ele, back when she was new, and she's been fun again as a Tempest running bravely away from Steve in ye olde Mad King's Labyrinth. My hohosmith (2nd engi) has been very hoho this latest go 'round, and is the one I played through the PoF story. The professions I tend to not play the most are revenant and necro (even though my Guild Wars main was a necromancer -- just not the same here). So... I mean... yeah. Okay, then.

    Mesmer

    Mesmer since I have a penchant for space/time magic and duelists. I also like the profession's diverse tool set and defensive capabilities since I'm awful at avoiding damage in this game.

    Off to play games that reward strategy and thought. Farewell, Watch the Floor Simulator.

  • Elementalist

    I love the Elementalist. Being able to swap through elements depending on the situation, I love the tactical challenge. I also like being able to stand off a bit and blow stuff up at range. In WvW, I really enjoy making areas less comfortable for the OpFor. It is not an easy class, very squishy, and I don't play glass canon. I do like that in my build I can strip conditions off not only me, but my squadies.

    I also enjoy playing the Mesmer, although I suck at it in WvW and seem to do quite well in PvE. But Ele was my first character in Guild Wars 1 and in my head canon, my GW2 Ele is the son of the former.

    Thief, for the movement skills, initiative and stealth.

    Thief

    Poor revenant. It's my secondary main, but it's just not that well designed so I keep getting sucked back into Thief. Rev really needs an overhaul and a bunch of new skills.

  • Thief

    Thief with primarily Deadeye as the main reason. I am glad Anet finally added a class that fits my play-style. In all the games I play, I gravitate towards the stealth long range fighters( Loki with Dex Syberis, Infiltrator in ME franchise, infiltrator PS2, and many more). All they have to do now is live up to their promise and have the damage be equal to that of DD with the rifle.

    Engineer because it's versatile.
    Edit May 2018: Anet messed up my favorite Engi trait line (Alchemy) earlier this year so I wish I could vote for my new main, Guardian (Firebrand), lol.

  • Thief

    My main was/is ranger, but after the rifle announce I decided to break out my thief to play again and I am quite amazed at how much thought I have to put into it since I do not have a pet to help deal and take damage. DD is very neat and I could survive a group of mobs, except for pocket raptors, since I would always be constantly healing. Then I had to get use to not being mobile after switching to DE and be more aware of what enemies I should take out/ avoid damage if possible. The only gripe I have would be being targeted first and the distance gap closing too fast for me to make use when facing more than one enemy.

    Would be nice to have more hybrid plant and regular clothing for fashion wars or more plant armor.

    Engineer

    Engineers and elementalists both get a bit of flack because of constant kit/attunement swapping, but for me that's part of the fun. They're the more difficult classes to play but also more rewarding when you get it right. I also find that kit engineers make a great stepping stone to being an elementalist so if you can swap your kits, you can learn to swap attunements (with a couple of other nuances, but it is so worth it).

    In reality, I've been swapping between my warrior, engineer, and elementalist lately. I have to agree with Mea in that the engineer is incredibly versatile and because of that, engineers get my vote as well.

    Elementalist

    The honest answer is: Whatever I logged in to last.

    But right now I'm pushing to do the PoF story with my Elementalist using the new Weaver spec. Kinda stuck with it just because I seem to be the only Weaver in my guild, and I've only ever seen two other Weavers out there in the game (both of them randomly in the same dungeon run I joined... never seen one since or after).

    So I feel like I've found this great, powerful, amazingly fun spec... that nobody but me knows about...

    People keep telling me "I don't get weaver" or "too much going on, not fun enough" all while I'm perfectly in tune with what to hit when and finding all the 'going on' to be a blast (figuratively and literally). I often just "mash buttons" on many classes in this game, but with Weaver I actually have a pattern down based on what's going on, and know that "if that happens, do this" more than I feel with other classes.

    Plus my weaver has an awesome 'fro. She's my best looking character by far. :)

    Just say no to butt-flaps.

    Thief

    So far only class I haven’t gotten into is the Mesmer. Out of the classes I’ve played it’s thief. The reason because you have to actually fight per se. thief is a melee class however the squishiest. So it’s most hardest to kill mobs up front. I personally think thief is hardest because it’s designed up front combat. Even though elemental is probably hardest. It’s always in the back of combat. Since you have a choice of staff , Which is a very good weapon choice that makes combat easier. And then you have the elemental skill that adds a element body gaurd.

    However the reason I love it the most is because to me thief takes the most skill to kill multiple enemies at once. You can ether be very good or bad by the skills you use. Specially pvp everything counts and you have to wisely use skills or you die much faster then other classes. However thief can leave you on the loner side.

    If you have thief as main it sucks cause no one wants you with raids.

    @Asum.4960 said:
    Just a week ago I rerolled to Guardian (specifically Firebrand) after finally being fed up with ArenaNet's incompetence with Necromancer, having played Necro for 2 years since HoT (and a bit since launch), and Thief for 3 years since launch before that, and I have to say I'm absolutely amazed.

    After thinkings for years that the grass always just seems greener on the other side, actually stepping on the other side and realising "Wow, it actually is WAY greener over here" was quite incredible.

    It's an actual cohesive and well designed class, with real options be it in Traits or weapon choices. Proper DPS, while also casually being able to throw out literally twenty times the support a Necro or Thief offers if the situation demands it/you are willing to sacrifice some DPS to help out your team should they need it (and that's without changing traits, gear and to an extent weapons, completely gimping your damage).

    Just 3-6 hours into playing Guardian for the first time (after boosting it to 80 and throwing gear on it and build crafting/familiarizing with skills) I was able to comfortably clear T4 dailies in under 25 Minutes.
    Every hour playing the class something new "clicks" about it, some new mechanical interaction is discovered.
    Here I can reflect or block projectiles to help my team, there it is super useful to cleanse condis of the team like a mad man, this is a part where handing out stability like candy helps alot, every boss fight I can prebuff like half a minute of protection, I can clutch heal, I can anticipate devastating attacks and hand out aegis at the right time to in some cases single handedly avert a wipe, I can group up mobs, do massive single target and AoE damage...

    After years of playing classes without Aegis, Stability, Protection, Blocks, Invulnerability, Heals, practical and frequent projectile defense, let alone the ability to share almost all of that with my team, It's quite frankly mind blowing and nearly a new game in terms of possibilities.

    Now while Thief certainly has improved with Daredevil and Deadeye, a heartfelt message especially to all stubborn Necro players out there, clinging onto the Theme of the class, give other professions a try!
    Just experiment, maybe it's Ele for you, maybe Warrior or Mesmer and if those don't click for you like they did for me as well, give Guardian a real try.
    There is this bright fun world out there in GW2 for you to meaningfully mechanically interact with.
    No more "Oh, my team is having trouble and we ware wiping? Well tough luck, nothing I can do about it...".
    No more "Well, they nerfed or fixed this one thing about my class and now we are bottom tier again, because that was the only trait/weapon/bug that made us viable".
    No more "Alright, let's check the class forum and see if everybody else is as upset as I am about how crappy this trait/entire traitline/weapon/specialisation is... Yep, they are", and instead reading the forum of your chosen main class and realising "Oh right, there actually really isn't anything to complain about I guess."

    I even started running some dungeons which I have not done in 5 years or never, having a blast even duoing them the first time around, just to dicover all the mechanical interactions with my class, blasting through them with clever use of mechanics, instead of just waving my scepter and hoping Deathshroud eats a burst for me while my teammate/s die while I do mediocre damage at best.

    TD;DR
    Guardian is pretty cool! If you are playing Necromancer, give other Profession a real shot, you may be surprised.

    Also Sorry for the wall of text, but I'm actually pretty excited about "discovering" Guardian, and this Thread seemed like a good opportunity to share that discovery.

    May I ask what build you use for your Firebrand? I’ve been trying to get into using Guardian, and I’ve been tinkering with base Guardian, DH and FB sets, but I can’t seem to find one that resonates with me well.

    Guardian

    I honestly enjoy aspects of every profession (I'm a self-proclaimed altoholic), but Guardian is definitely one of my top favorites. I just love the aesthetic of a holy warrior and the blue fire is nice change of pace and is quite pretty. Being able to do a little bit of supporting is nice, and I find Guardian fun and engaging without being boring. I have a power Dragonhunter and a condi Firebrand and I love them both. Different styles of gameplay, but the same heart.

    I am enjoying renegade. Playing a hybrid build and it's very interesting how it works. I like how the traits/skills synergize to reward a very aggressive/adaptive play-style. Things have gotten to the point where I feel it is the second most intense combat next to my daredevil.

    While I have a fondness for classes with high health and/or armor pools, ultimately I love the Warrior. I love the brutality and raw power it offers no matter how I play it. I feel like a wrecking ball, an unstoppable death machine (even when running Viper's/Sinister's/Berserker's gear).

  • Necromancer

    I've leveled and played everything except Warrior and Guardian. Guardian I tried a couple of times, then got bored and deleted it. Recently bought extra char slots and insta-leveled Warrior and Guardian, and found Warrior to be interesting. Favorite is always Necro, but when I want to take a break, I go to Thief or Ranger first and Mesmer, Elementalist or Engineer second.

    I'm mainly an open world player, with some (non-roaming) dabbling in WvW.

    Time for me to cheat as I can't pick:
    Guardian
    Reasons I do: Decent survivability, really fun with swords/torch + longbow, quick and exciting to play.

    Reasons I don't: Sometimes Longbows can seem like it takes a while to attack (that's how longbows are, but still), takes way too long to die (only bad when I'm in a party/group/whatever that sometimes just refuse to help me up when I'm downed so I can be downed for over a min or 2 because I keep regaining my HP and then losing it from attacks while no one helps me up)

    Revenant
    Reasons I do: really fast class, Sword/Axe or Sword/Sword with Hammer was a lot of fun, and Shortbow was a lot of fun as well.

    Reasons I don't: 6-0 skills limited to the spirit, I die way too fast (personal preference) in some of the higher level areas due to so many things nipping at my heels, lots of traits on the skilltree are lackluster, feels like all I'm doing on the class, I do better on another I've played.

    Thief
    Reasons I do: Super fast and agile, awesome dual pistols and dual daggers, I like range classes with guns.

    Reasons I don't: No AoE or several targets for long range.

    Ranger
    Reasons I do: Axe/Torch Axe/Axe makes me think of Slicers from PSO, really like the pets

    Reasons I don't: Can't get the black widow, can't use pistols or rifles (which is okay now that Deadeye exist)

    Necromancer
    Reasons I do: Since in diapers I've had a huge fascination with the dead and spirits and sprites and zombies and everything like that, I like my minion army as they're cute and adorable, awesome staff and sceptre/dagger gameplay for me.

    Reasons I don't: No good elite class for minions, making me play as only a core Necro

    Mesmer
    Reasons I do: Mirage is super fun and awesome. Had a little bit of range as a Axe/Torch or Axe/Pistol player and I really like the teleporting and dashing around. Also, really nice to help my friends who's in need of teleporting... which was the reason I even made Mesmer in the 1st place.

    Reasons I don't: Super super squishy and can die quite fast.

    I loathe Warrior and Engineer with a passion, and I just made a test Elementalist to level up to 80 to try out if I would like it or not.

    Thief

    Thief is my favorite class to play primarily because of core class mobility. Daredevil improves on that mobility further while Deadeye loses the shadowstep from Steal but gains an extra teleport via Shadow Flare and some rapid escape mobility from rifle 4 (even though rifle has its own problems, Rifle 4 is fantastic and I love it). Any other class I play I tend to try and build it as mobile as possible within the constraints of that class. I dislike the warrior the most despite it being easy for me to play (though I am having a surprising amount of fun on Spellbreaker) and I am pretty bad at Chronomancer despite liking the class (though I find I can play Mirage with similar mobility to thief and am enjoying it). If I had to pick a second favorite class it would probably be Guardian.

    Used rev as my main for the last 5 or 6 months (which is most of the time I've been playing).

    I just find glint too useful for solo PvE. And because I can never stick to a single playstyle, I also like having the option to play a decent condi or dedicated healer build when I feel like switching things up.

    Always default back my power herald though. I just find it to be a pretty safe build where you can tank a lot but still deal out acceptable damage.

  • Engineer

    Engineer since day 1

    I love how you can pick just about any play-style you want with one class. Anything from melee, ranged to healer.

  • Mesmer

    I main Ranger, but Mesmer has got to be my favourite. I love the style of the class, and the general aesthetic with the butterflies.

    i dont have a clear favourite... i play all 9classes and each one has something to bring to the table
    in general pve content - maybe firebrand since rotations are easy and dmg is high
    pvp - i like to play thief because i dont like direct confrontations, and if i cant kill someone within 3 seconds, i rather move on to a new point, i don't like to fight for a long time
    wvw - thief/necromancer... thief has so much mobility... i really enjoy ganking between 2 enemy zergs... and getting bags from them both lol...
    td meta - elementalist
    jumping puzzles/achievements etc - mesmer since it has portals

    Anet: give us in-game customizable human NPC companion please

    Thief

    Thief, because I'd rather the game trust me to manage a resource pool so I have actual choice in my weapon skills than have everything on cooldowns. I find playing other classes frustrating because the skills tell me when I can use them rather than the other way around.

    All the perks, none of the responsibilities.

    Initiative is a great mechanic, in deed! I also want to spam my weapon skills when switching to other professions after playing thief :p

    I love playing my thief, the build I made is perfect for soloing pretty much everything (pretty bad at pvp though). with almost 24/7 evasion and aoe on every dodge. high bleed stacks. it's really fun to play, most of my other characters always stand on the same spot, waiting on the cd's. whilst my thief is always doing twirls and dodges all over the place.

    I play various situational classes, there is no one that is my favorite.

    I have a guard and a warrior for dungeon/instance content. Necro and Engineer for WvW, Ranger for Open World, and Rev for PvP.

    I just started an Ele for, of all things, Lab farming, and they seem to be doing a great job of it.

    Tempest, out of six characters: versatile, great support, great fun.

    As Hawks put it somewhere "The real problem with Engie is it makes every other profession boring to play".
    Engie has a lot of incomplete, useless and buggy stuff, tend to get the short stick on many aspects, from balance to representation, and is in a constant state of "please don't nerf me even more". IMO only Rev can say it suffer more from lack of dev support in the game... Yet Engie is still the most fun to play, ever.

  • Ranger

    I enjoy both my Ranger and Reaper, only my mood determines which one I prefer at any given time. The only reason I voted for my Ranger is that he was my first character all those years ago. My Guardian comes in a close 2nd (or would it be 3rd?)
