The Daily Quest - What Role Do You Play?

Posted Apr 03, 2015 by William Murphy

The Daily Quest - What Role Do You Play?

No, this isn't a question about whether you roleplay (that could be a whole other topic another day), but rather what kind of role in a party you prefer to play.  While there have been some attempts to veer away from the traditional class archetypes, it seems that most people like playing heals, DPS, tanking, or some other support class. So we ask you... what's your preferred role?

Me, personally? More often than not, I like to go DPS. I like killing things, and trying to boil down their HP as fast as I can. It's just as relied upon as the more necessary roles like tank and healer, but chances are there are so many DPS players and DPS is so easy to come across that you will rarely find a party in need of a good damage dealer.

Tanks and Healers get the most thanks, but being a solid DPS and making sure you know when and where to strike can be just as crucial.  Now... if only I didn't have such long dungeon queue times.  I dabble with tanks and healers, but I'm just not very good at either in most games. I'd much rather have a more enemy-whacking focused job when it all comes down to business.

So? Let's hear it. What role do you like to play in a party and why?
