    So, now when the hype is not that high... What profession are You gonna play?

    Pick an option in the poll.

    EDIT: I'd like to hear why, and with what weapon combo you're thinking of playing. And the race? Tell me your story about your character if you want to!

    Human Guardian, and for pvp, im going sword and torch, with mace and shield, some mega offense with some mega defense :P that way when in a team we can just huddle, i put a shield up, whack a healing rune down, switch back to sword and torch to do some nice damage along with having the mobility :P really not sure about what im going to use for PvE probably having a hammer in there somewhere

    We really don't need another of these threads already. Wait until open beta or until the nda lifts.

    I've always liked the whole ninja/rogue style, so my first char will definitely be the thief. I'm curious how the initiative system will work out (will it be limiting / spamming high damage skills like unload?) and how thieves will be able to survive and offer support/control. My thief's race will definitely be Asura. I'm not sure about weapons yet, but for looks/PvE I will probably start with dual dagger and dual pistol, and then try out all weapon combinations.
    I will definitely also roll a (Charr) warrior, which might become my main if the thief is not what I had hoped it to be. Though the I'm also very interested in the guardian and their skill potential.

    Human Guardian. I'm probably going to play him pretty supportive/defensive, since I like enabling my allies towards victory. For PvP I'll probably be rocking a Sword/Shield and a Staff, for mobility and support. In PvE-group combat I'm thinking of defaulting towards Mace/Shield and either Hammer or a Staff. For solo play It'll probably be Sword/Torch and Two-handed Sword.

    I don't get this poll? There is one just like this already...and it's not that old either.

    There are already several other threads like this and a very active thread that is identical, if not better than this thread. I don't need to remind the Mods that duplicate threads don't need to exist.
    If curiosity killed the cat, why can't speculation kill you?

    I'm sorry, just thought the old one got fucked up becouse of the mesmer hype... Just wanted to see how the classes on a poll were doing now, if it was a fair amount of everything or if let's say Thief was much more popular. Delete thread I guess...

    I see where you are coming from, but you should have probably waited a little longer to make this. I'd say perhaps next month or so or when open beta(as people have suggested) has begun.

    Mesmer was enormously popular in that poll because it was made right after its announcement.

    Still, only thing you can say now is what class INTERESTS you and are inclined to roll as your first char in whatever beta phase you enter. I'm still doubting between necromancer or a mesmer so...

    Human Guardian here, obviously.

    Sword & Shield for first weapon set.

    Probably Scepter & Torch for second weapon set, maybe Greatsword.

    After looking at the builder, I don't really like the sword/shield combo. I like Flash Blade but everything else, to me at least, is inferior to the mace/shield. Mind you this is my own opinion.

    Mesmer, was gonna make one since before anouncement!! Probably gonna be using a scepter and focus and a stave because I wanna be super caster, not a huge fan of Melee but that may change after we learn more about their abilities!!

    And unless I decide to make a ranger, my Mesmer will likely be asura, if I do make a ranger the ranger will be asura and sylvari Mesmer

    I;m actually still stuck between Thief and Ranger. I like the 'stand back and pew pew' gameplay, but I was never one for constantly having a pet with me. I'll just play both once I can, then i'll decide.

    It is cool, infact I forget about that video whenever I decide whether to go sword or mace. It is possible that the builder just makes the sword/shield combo seem more boring than it really is while playing. Well there is always the beta to try out all the weapons :P

    Wel i have three that i know have to play, Human Gaurdian, Charr Engineer, and a Mesmer who i have not figured out what race i will be yet. I'm also fairly interested in playing a warrior and necro, but those three will be my first choices.
