Just wondering what your favorite classes are/were in any MMO you have played.
1. Everquest Monk. Monk done right. Completely martial arts based using only their bare fists and several martial arts moves like flying kick and eagle claw when the game was released. Gradually moved into hand to hand weapons as the game released more expansions. Could use 2 handers but most didnt. Also their weapons were actual martial arts weapons like Bo Staves and Tonfas. Also class was very fun especially since dungeons werent LOLzAoE everything down like they are in WoW. The monk's job was to use feign death, similar to a Hunter's, in order to split up a large group of mobs and bring them back 1-2 at a time. Timing your FD took a lot of skill as if you had caster mobs and you used it while they were still casting the spell would still hit you and break your Feign causing everything nearby to come after you. Great monks were known throughout each server and we got groups very fast.
2. Rift Chlormancer. Very very fun class. Using DPS to heal. Could spec to be a full tank healer or a raid healer. Had 2 different buffs that let them do that. One increased healing done to a single target and the other healing done to the group/raid. Also had a debuff that allowed players to be healed when they did damage to mobs
3. Everquest ShadowKnight. Similar to a Blood DK. Most fun I had once I finally made one. Could do something called swarm killing. Basically they got self buffs and abilities that gave them self heals whenevr something hit them and could stack a very high damage shield to help kill mobs. People could pull 100+ mobs at a time then let them all suicide on your damage shield while you stayed full health thanks to buffs that kept you healed. More mobs the better as getting hit more meant more healing.
