I really liked them all-each class was special. When you got a new weapon, your abilities with that weapon completey changed from what you were using as a weapon before. I loved that!

Ranged play seems to be most popular this beta. Those classes with ranged play seemed to do the best with combat.

I really liked the elementalist and engineer.  As you said, ranged seems to be the way to go.  However, I have dabbled in the thief with dual daggers and you can quickly lay the hurt on someone.

Reason ranger is my favorite: w/ greatsword it does SOOOO MUCH DAMAGE. I have the trait that makes signets apply to me and my pet, so i run signet of stone and signet of the wild for the invulnerability and dmg boost, then ontop of that quickening zephyr and rampage as one for attack speed crit and might.  I can chop down people in pvp in like 2 seconds, so satisfying.

Guardian, hands down.  I am a necro fan too but when I picked up guardian, it just felt like I could hold the line, so to speak.  It is kind of difficult to hold against a larger force unless you are pretty good at your class, and I don't really think anyone was, but with guardian, it wasn't too hard to manage.

 

Necro is a close second, as you have death shroud and lots of fun AoEs (marks on the staff are amazing)

I used to TL;DR, but then I took a bullet point to the footnote.

I loved the Thief, so fun with dual daggers, sword/pistol, dual pistols/ pistol/dagger, bow... 

Pickpocketing was fun, stepping in and ropping feathers, black powder... JESUS! Give me a release date!

I want to play some more, but it's such a tease right now.

Next BWE I am going to play a Necro,that class being my main in GW1, and see how it stacks up.

The scary part is one day the world will be run by adults who were never spanked as kids and got trophies just for participating.

Guardian. I was really surprised. For some reason I thought it was one of the least interesting classes, but after having tried it I think I'm going to have to change my mind on what class to roll on launch (I had decided on a warrior previously). I like the whole sacrifice-my-buff-so-everyone-gets-buffed mechanic and the weapon I started out with (the mace) really felt like it packed a punch.

I tried out Ranger, Ele and Guardian.

Rated in order of fun-

1- Ranger

2- Ele

3-  Not sure yet, but definitely not Guardian.

Really unimpressed with the Guardian, which I had though was going to be my main.  I'll probably be steering away from melee classes altogether, since things seem to be stacked in favor of range.

Favorite Race/starter zones-

1 and 2 are tied- Human and Char

3- Norn

I was very surprised that I enjoyed ranger and thief immensely, which I did not expect.

The only class I just could not get into was engineer, which also surprised me because it seemed so great before I tried it.

Probably the mesmer.... Its really amazing that the designs actually works as intended. Fighting a mesmer is confusing as FUCK. Only problem Id say is that conditions and boons arent really strong enough, especially conditions.

A close 2nd was the ranger.... it took me a while to get weapon swapping down and for some reason I didnt rebind any keys all weeked but the amount of damage, plus kiting a ranger can do is gonna be pretty crazy in the hands of a professional.

Thought I was gonna like Necro but meh..

and Elementalist I'll have to try again when I have some time to study the class and memorize the skills in depth.. basically play through the pve weapon system one step at a time... rather than just log in and hit play now...

 

Btw Love that it literally takes 5 seconds to log in and start pvping... quicker if you log out in WvWvW

The weapons options for an elementalist were mind-boggling when you factor in 4 attunements for every combination.

It felt mad to go dual daggers for an experience more akin to your typical melee rogue archetype, but coupled with an elemental for a bit of distraction and it worked. It was a total blast trying the huge variety of combinations.

Air (lightning) was my favourite attunement across most of the various weapon types. But I found myself switching attunements frequently during fights.

 

Also tried a thief and enjoyed that too. I had trouble getting the most out of the skills but unlike a great deal of other games, it was obvious how more practice would make a big difference. And they can use a bow! For actual combat rather than pulling a mob by means of a minor irritation.

I agree....was just going to post about the attunements....I liked how you could switch in battle....water would give group healing....my group was alway happy.....fire attunement with staff could laydown nice damage with range....also liked the fire evade.

Ranger in Pvp was a blast for me. I went with axe and horn for speed buff and entangle. It was nice chasing down those invaders.

I played Longbow/Shortbow Ranger and I loved it!

Played all classes but Eng, Necro and Ranger and have no plans to play those.  Of the ones I did play I enjoyed Rifle Warrior and DW Dagger Rogue the most fun with a Greatsword Guardian close behind.

This Beta weekend I tried a Nercomancer, Guardian, Warrior, Mesmer and Engineer.

Out of those I liked the Guardian and the Mesmer and the others I played to about level 10 and they didn't really click for me.

Next beta I plan to investigate the Elementalist, Ranger, and Thief.

But so far, the Mesmer is my favourite by a big margin.

My words are not here to sway you,they are here to make you understand.

Played almost everything. Loved Guardian, Necromancer, Ele (when I wasn't dieing), Mesmer and Ranger. Warrior, Thief and Engineer didn't get enough play time frome me mainly because I was looking to do something unique with them and I couldn't figure it out fast enough.

This is not a game.
