You also missed Guardian which I've found to be the most fun but Necromancer looks interesting.

I like elementalist; They have the most skills of any class, so i like the versatility.

oops forgot guardian. just type it here i guess

I always go warrior or ranger but I sorta want to try a caster this time around. I'm leaning toward Ele or Mesmer just for something different.

Ranger and Necromancer all the way. Self explanatory.

From what I played (never played Guardian, Thief or Necro)

  1. Warrior: Mobile, I felt powerful, and I looked absolutely silly in my pink armor and afro
  2. Elementalist: A lightning whip, some spells are use, diverse in combat with 5 elements to use
  3. Ranger: Finally someone who fights with thrown weapons as opposed to a bow (though rangers can use bows as well)
  4. Engineer: Class needs a lot of work, but on the bright side they have flamethrowers, turrents and mines.
  5. Purple Arcane Mage: They got rid of the GW1 mesmer for this?!? What a disgrace.

Engineer for me

I've only tried Mesmer and Thief so far. Mesmer was definitely the most fun of the two.

I don't know...I got into the last beta so I will find out soon :) Warrior, Elementalist, Necromancer appeal to me most right now.

Probably Commando. They're a bit OP, though. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KR2Esy83MQ0

As bruno said, my disappointment with the new mesmer is a part of it. I was so excited for the mesmer's release but when I saw purple laz0rs, RNG and suicide bombing clones, my interest waned down a bit. When I eventually got to play the class I was even more let down. But I only played for the first 6 levels or so, so it might get better later on, but the first 6 levels were utterly disappointing :(

I wanted to be a killer psychologist who shuts down foes and make them kill themselves, not kill people with purple lasers and suicide bombers.

It's early days yet, they might have changed something this time around.

They're definitely a far cry of what they were in GW, no one can really say otherwise. On topic I say elementalist.
