Stood in the Fire
I suggest that you play what you want to play. Hehe, really, it's all about personal choice.
I haven't played in a little while, but try an engineer. They're more utility than damage though.
"What class/race/server/blahblah should I roll?" threads are not encouraged.
We have a index stickied with links to many per class discussion threads; Link.
In addition, the official Guild Wars 2 wiki is a marvelous resources for a variety of technical, mechanical and general inquiries.
