Anywho.. Keep up the good work!

Always loved tanking and healing.  Seperate toons of course.  Made any game I played much more MMO for me.  When I was DPS, I felt I had to beg to fit into a PUG.  Soooo I guess classes would most closly allign with Paladin from WoW.  Though I would hate to be pigeon hole'd to just that definition.

My favorite classes are Dread Knight and Blood Mage from Vanguard: Saga of Hereoes.

Dread Knight: Teleports, Steals health,Executes,Wield giant two-handed axes and steal strenght and magic from his enemies.

Blood Mage: Buffs his team with pacts of blood,Steal health from his enemies to heal allies,Damage enemies by controlling the blood in their bodies to bleed them to death.

Too bad Vanguard sucks.

Good video as usual.

My favorite class has always been a non pet ranger/hunter. I love my saboteur in Rift.

And...The Neverwinter animations look really cheesy. That video footage reminds me of Alganon.

Paladin or any melee/healing hybrid class. I like to be self-sufficient and don't mind trading lower  DPS  for higher survivability.

Also like monk / hand-to-hand fisticuffs fighters . No reason, just like the idea I guess.

I gotta say a Healer... Loved to play my paladin in WoW eons ago, and always top those healing charts, keeping every one alive... And cleric on rift, was pretty fun as well...

I guess thats one of the reasons, am still hesitant on buying GW2...

Bill, their can only be one... one host... you that is!


To answer your question I too like pet classes. In WoW I liked Warlock (up untill the latest changes to them) and in other MMOs Necromancers tend to be my choice. Not because of the "death" style magic but more because they have pets. In GW2 I like my Ranger a bunch.


As for Neverwinter. I'm a huge STO fan and I still play it. I'll play NW as well because I am a D&D fan but I haven't been following it so I don't know the classes.

For the most part any type of caster class is my first choice. Warlocks, Mages, Necromancers, etc. 

I am growingly (yes it is a a word :P) excited about Neverwinter. FFXIV and The Elder Scrolls Online are also coming soon. Geez! Next year will be a hard pick as to what I play the most. I am looking to you oh great sweater wearer to guide me in my descisions >.< Keep up the great episodes and I too am looking forward to the live episodes!

@BruceYee, thats Everquest 2.

My favorite class is the Bloodmage from Dragon Age, i would love to have it in mmos. I tried the Bloodmage in Vanguard but the game is so unpolished that i didnt enjoy it there.

My favorite was the warrior in TERA, so much skill required to be effective in PvP and to tank pre-block patch. Was something unlike most other MMOs, a "dodge" tank, you tanked by holding aggro and dodging/interrupting attacks, very few could tank with the warrior in PvE back then.

Favorite class (for my damn cookie) its quite difficult to really put a finger on it. It depends a lot.

For raiding damage wise, The feral Druid from WoW (Woltk) was hands down my favorite giving difficult rotation with both a rewarding feeling for doing it and using energy which isn't seen much for hard rotations.

Over-all its very game dependant. Aion I had a blast and completely enjoyed the style of the chanter (staff using melee support that could dish out damage and suppliment allies) a lot and the concept itself is one of my favorites. Its a type you don't see much, people think a staff (bo for martial arts) isn't a cool weapon for some reason and I really find it amazing.

I also enjoy warrior types, particularly the (I know cheesy) 2Hander user classes, with a great one I loved being in Tera utilizing dodge and having to roll away and dishing out damage while in.

Juggernaut from AC2. Near the end they really made the class feel different from other classes. A two handed class which could make it's staff act like a shield which allowed it to effectively tank or DPS freely.

I loved going from a Boots run as a DPS to a dillo group on Hero Isle as the tank. It was an amazing class to play and the one I wish another game would recreate properly. The closest I found was a staff wielding brawler in EQ2, but that still didn't get it just right.

Healer and Support if i can get both in one class then that's just a big plus for me.  

So that's why I liked playing Bard in Rift for the buffs and some healing.  Engineer/Guardian in GW2.

uggeh12 writes: My favorite class is the Reaver from DAoC, it just brought so much to the fight as a melee-centered hybrid. I loved that 90% of your damage came from positionals and reactionaries and, your debuffs were always welcome in a melee train. I would love to see another MMO make a hybriud class that specializes in flexible weapons(flais and whips). Wed Nov 07 2012 10:35AM Report writes:
