Voted Support,

 

Becuase I loved playing a Pac healer in Mid. CC was sooo much fun, I healed a little but was mostly CC spec.

insta - Aoe Stun everyone and get them to burn their pruge, then bam... lvl 50 Pac AoE Mezz... out of the fight for almost two minutes.. was the best feeling ever.

My runner up would be stealth. Loved my Nightshade.

Didn't vote, since I enjoy them all depending on my mood. If I where forced to choose, I generally gravitate toward roguish types, preferably dual weilding blades.

It's always been a hard choice for me, since there are things I love about in every class.  PAC healers were amazing in DAoC and by far the best type of healer in the game.  I do like stealthers, since it adds a whole new element to the game.  WAR made tanks amazing, since you could actually make tank walls and block people from getting to your squishy players.  Casters are always fun for dishing out damage from afar -- I loved my Warlock in DAoC!  I am also a sucker for pet classes and Theurgists were by far my favorite.  I could go on for hours on all the classes I love!

Stealther here, more precisely for scouting and helping whole realm in giving good reports, follow ennemies unnoticed, then intervene when back up arrives.

Crafter power!!

I should add that I probably enjoy crafters so much because I typically work 60-80 hour weeks, but I have lots of downtime moments within the work week that allow me to tinker with crafting even when I'm not able to give the game 1-2 hours of consistent playtime.   RvR combat typically involves lengthier playtimes, whether it's running to attack or defend somewhere, and then committing to the battle.

Ouch.. difficult choice. I'll take one of each, please.  I usually play a caster or healer, but I'm itching for a tank class that's done right in RvR.

My name is Plastic-Metal and my name is an oxymoron.

I chose healer as I prefer to help rather than to actually be relied upon for killing.  I did love my Champions and Mentalist (Mentalism was the best spec in the game, pre-buff) though.  Nightshade and old-school Ranger were fun.  I loved every DAoC class from all three realms.

WAR did make tanks awesome to play, but I hated the healers in that game with a passion, so I didn't stick with it, even though the tanks were so damn fun.  WoW Druids were fun to play, all specs, but I absolutely loved healing on mine.  I, for one, would be happy to see a similar mobile/HoT healer class in CU.

Just hope they don't have all WAR-type healers.

I voted support(debuff/buff). I'm hoping for a backup healer/support like a daoc bard.

The only thing I'm worried about with tanks and melee classes is the stand-stills that could potentially happen.  Reason I rolled a Mentalist in DAoC was because I hated sitting still on my Champion while the zergs faced off for hours and no side could make an honest push.  Mentalist gave me the perfect solo healer/support class.

Corsair from FFXI was a lot of fun. Buffer/Debuffer and a bit of a DPS.

I most like ranged damage dealers especially casters but archers too.

I also enjoy healers but only when I have a regular group of people to play with. Nothing is more annoying than trying to play a healer in pugs and getting yelled at when some dumb tank in your group runs to the back of enemy lines way out of range and dies or a stealther in your group decides to go solo away from the group and dies.

If CU has a class like DAOC's skald, I'd be really tempted to play that a fair amount too.

I kind of realized after I posted it again... It can also fit under "Caster" or "Hybrid" class... sorta...  hmm...

I want to play crafter, healer, buff/debuff. I think those classes are fun and I'm hoping they do them all well in this game.

As an altaholic there are SO many to pick from.  However if I had a gun to my head, my top 3 in no particular order....

 

Shaman (WAR).  Most fun I've ever had on a healer.

2h Sword Hunter (DAoC).  At Thid level this class/spec surprised so many people how awesome it could be

Thane (DAoC).  Just because, what else do you need to say.  THANE POWER!

I choes crafter. I am sure I will have an alt that is either caster or tank, but I love the idea that the crafting that I enjoy so much in games will actually be necessary and not just a time sink.

It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours that we are fighting, but for freedom — for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself. ~Declaration of Arbroath

My favorite character type is a Hybrid mage/melee fighter, sadly this is also one of the most underused hybrids in mmo's/rpgs in general, minus a few games.

Only games that did it ok were Dragon Age (Arcane Knight), Kingdoms of Amalur, and a few others. I'm talking about the dps kind of focused hybrid, not your generic "Paladin" style buffer/healer tank.

 

So I usually end up going for the melee/light tank style of fighter instead.

 

I'm hoping perhaps there'll be something possible for this kind of playstyle in CU.

Dual-weilding light tank with piercers (or light, fast weapons of whatever type available.) Full tank, no magic, preferably with good mobility.
