Engineers don't need melee weapons, they have flamethrowers.
Some argue that blunderbuss from the rifle covers it, because it does more damage the closer you are. But then we still have yet to find out what the tool kit does. Melee and engineers is still a bit unknown.
I have always been a fan of the Righteous Crusader archetype. I always loved paladins in Warcraft and will continue to play any class in a game that is similar to that archetype because Ive found its the thing I'm best at playing. So I will definitely have a Guardian as my main and a Thief as an alt. Im not sure what else I would be interested in playing but I'll keep my eye out for the other professions to see what really interests me before I fill my character list with Alt's, seeing as you need to buy extra slots.

I think I decided on a female Charr Guardian instead. I was looking at vids of Char Rangers, and decided it was meh' so I think ill go with my original plan and do a Guardian. But of course I do want to know what the last profession is..they need to release that -.- or just something in general haha they haven't posted anything forever!
I played a Rogue throughout Vanilla WoW and started a Blood Elf Paladin in BC. And I stuck to it. I made a Blood Elf Warrior alt in Cata. Never got very far with it though.
Seeing as I fell in love with the Sylvari when I saw them, I decided I wanted one as my main. Contrary to what I have played before, I will make it a Ranger. Most of my time has been spent playing Melee and now I want to try some ranged.
Now here comes my alts. Norn Warrior, Charr Engineer and Human Guardian. As you can see, I am still very much inclined towards Melee. It just sticks to me. I prefer up close and personal!
Have always played a heavy armor character as a first and/or main, so i'm very familiar with Warriors and feel very secure when playing one. Also i usually play mmos and such with the hubby and as he enjoys playing the squishy classes it works out well as we dont ninja each others gear/weapons and complement each other
Then as an alt i like to make a pet type class, since i usually level alts alone a companion is nice to have (to choose between a demo lock and a hunter in wow, i HAD to make a BM hunter and camp Skoll for days to show him off as a trophy pet) so i guess a ranger will be my second alt, and i find the Necro to be very appealing to me for some reason.. Was never really into casters but Black and green just looks so cool, will def be alt number 3.. Will most likely try them all eventually anyway.
Actually now i'm torn between a necro and a warrior as my first character as i'm writing this..
I don't understand. Is there a limit to how many characters you can have? I know that WoW has the 10 limit thing, but then i heard that you have to pay for more slots? So confused...
Leveling Sylvari Elementalist with my best friends as a Sylvari Thief.
On the side I will level a Human Guardian.
Both, haha. =) I'm going to have an engineer as one of my mains, which is very different from anything I've ever played, really. But my second main will be a ranger, which is what I usually play.

Guild Wars 2: Elementalist/Guardian
I played a mesmer in GW, a resto druid on WoW as there was no mesmer kind of a class, and mesmer again in GW2 if the profession makes it to the game. If not, probably a thief.
Professional jewelcrafter, alchemist, scribe, tailor and enchanter. Glad to help, but also wish that people learned to use search engines.
Passionate Guild Wars fan since 2005. Waiting Guild Wars 2 excitedly since Eye of the North, 2007. Still a little bit of waiting to go! =)
I dont know what I will pick. I may just make a character of each race and some of the professions I'm curious about, and see which combination I like for my first character. But for right now I kind of find it stupid to start to make a character right now when the game hasn't even come out...
