    What I am torn between playing is: Warrior/Guardian and race Human/Charr.
    Mesmer, Necro, Thief, are gonna be the last ones I'll play, If I ever will. Same goes for Asura and Sylvari.

    What I also like, and am not sure about is Elementalist, too cool, but no idea about actual effectiveness.
    What I find appealing but not as much as Elementalist is Engineer, the idea of random stuff just makes me excited, as I am a goblin engineer in 5 chars in wow and I love the random O-shit buttons that u dont know what to expect. Surprising both you and the enemy!

    If a ranger has though, an easier time beating mesmers, it might be my choice.
    I would hate playing a class having trouble against mesmer, I could work my way around other classes, but mesmer I wont really bother, so if a proffesion has even a slight (say 5%) more chance on beating a mersmer, than say, the class I will play on release, I will reroll.
    Currently playing: |Diablo 3| |Far Cry 3| |Crysis 3| |Starcraft 2| |League of Legends|

    I will roll all of them at some point as I'm sure everyone else will. My first roll will be a warrior with a 2h greatsword and 1h sword and shield. The guardian, thief and ranger are pretty tits as well.

    I'm going for an Asura ranger dual weilding a sword in the main hand and a axe in the off hand with a drake as the pet. I hope it works the way how im thinking where i'd still be doing reasonable melee damage as a ranger with me and my bet just beating stuff

    Are you sure they are? People seem to be arguing on whether or not they can be played like a melee or are ranged with some melee abilities. I swear if I could play a strictly melee mesmer I'd totally play one.

    Guardian... It was always Guardian.

    Even before they announced the Guardian.

    I loved my Monk, when I heard they were leaving the Monk out of GW2, and adding it into another class, I knew I would play whatever class that was, and it's the Guardian.

    Sword and Shield Main Weapon Set

    Hammer for Secondary Weapon Set


    As well as a combination of the others in my inventory, just to switch things up along the way.

    No multiple choices I am going with engineer and ranger. Want something with a bit of range that uses tools to deliver damage.

    What's the worst that can happen to you ...

    Guardian

    I intend to make a name for myself in PvP. You know, that guy that when you see him, you REALLY REALLY want to kick his ass so you can be like "OMG I BEAT (insert awesome name here)!"

    Had that back in the days in Aion. I was a Templar and a quite known one. Now since Guardians seem to be the closest to a templar, It's the logical next step.
    -||My "Holy" Paladin.||-
    -||[Equilibrium||- My Guildwars 2 Guild.

    Hated by many, confronted by none.

    I hope it's in a good way though!

    I then want to see you as ''It's that awesome and respectful PvP player, which fights skillfully and assists his allies, his unkillable even alone! My goal is to kill him one day'' rather than ''Oh god it's that player who /spit /lol you when you die, make alts and spam you on your server, I sure want to kill him badly''

    Human Necromancers are awesome.

    You know, after seeing that video of that awesome Guardian 1v1... I think I'm gonna play Guardian.

    My excitement over the Mesmer has died down, making me realize that I still want to play an Engineer. =)

    Mesmer! I have interest in thief, guardian, and necro, maybe warrior too, but I won't be playing thos professions for a long while after release.

    Mesmer with a staff probably if I can. I didn't really look at the weapon combos since I want to be super surprised when I play the game. Only thing I looked into was the classes again. Although I did play a Warrior/Assasin in Factions. That turtle rep grinding where you ran to those places as fast as you could and reset was absolutely the most fun ive had grinding in any game! So after I roll mesmer I might try a warrior for old time sake.

    Although in the first Guild Wars elementalists always intrigued me. I never had the chance to really play one since I mainly played my warrior/assasin tank<--- Had best weapon in game with the best enchant felt so badass, as well as my Necromancer mesmer for PvP. Raise ghouls slow herp derp your dead. I kind of will miss the dual classes since it build endless possibilities. That was one of the reasons why I kept playing.

    I believe in the use of hard drugs if only for the sole purpose of natural selection.

    Sylvari Engineer alongside a Norn Necromancer. Races may interchange, but those two are my favorite.

    Ive always played the righteous warrior archetype, I loved the way Paladins were portrayed in WCIII and ever since I havent considered playing anything else as my main (even though in WoW i didnt pick up a Paladin until late BC, but that was a family thing, not gonna go into it)

    I hated what happened to the Paladin's image in WoW, I just hope the Guardian doesnt suffer from a similar issue, and since the Trinity doesnt apply anymore, I think chances are it wont.

    Guardian as my main, still decided whether or not it will be Human or Norn. But my other interests as classes are Thief, ranger, and engineer, so I will probably get around to them at some point
