I have an Elementalist and Guardian at 80 and I’m looking for a third class to take to max level. After playing several at low level, and reading numerous guides, I’ve come to the consideration that what I need to do is focus on what I don’t like and want to avoid, rather than the professions strengths.
For example, I love the Elementalist, but Elementalist should most definitely be avoided by players who like the flexibility of weapon switching, especially switching between melee and ranged during combat, as Elementalist can’t do that.
As another example, I tried thief and found that I really don’t enjoy the rear positioning element of many thief skills. And, while I like stealth in some games, I don’t like stealth in gw2. Therefore, thief play style isn’t for me.
I’d live to hear from some other people, or maybe see some links if any exist, regarding unique play style elements of other professions that would break or make enjoyment of a class.
Any thoughts welcome!
