    I like the warrior too but i have also always enjoyed support classes so its a difficult choice. Wish they had the monk!

    Well thats practically the closest profession to the monk but i want to try something new this time and the warrior looks a lot more appealing than it did in GW1 but i may end up picking the guardian

    i'm tied between Mesmer and necromancer but i'm leaning more towards the necromancer. Seems like a lot of people are interested in the warrior.

    I'm with you on that one, the warrior in GW2 would be anything but the typical warrior in other MMOs. It's also hard for me to decide because I wanted to try out something new like the engineer, or the mesmer because it looks op from the videos haha (even though i never liked mesmers in GW1 nor their purple butterflies in their skills). But I guess I'll stick with the versatile ranger just because I'm gonna be a sylvari;)

    Haha i have noticed a lot of people taking more interest in the Warrior than any other MMO.

    Purple is the universal gay color just sayin to future mesmers. ( don't have anything against gays! ) lol Ranger is looking to be a lot more pet oriented than it did in GW which isn't a bad thing and i never really been into gun type professions in fantasy games.

    Had to sign up to say I am surprised there are not others wanting to be elementalist, had it pegged as a popular profession.

    Well i'm likely going to have two characters one melee one caster. Melee will be either warrior or guardian and for a ranged/caster character i'm gonna go with an ele. It's really hard to make any choices when you haven't played the game & each profession is so appealing. So i really can't make any final decisions yet.

    Yeah I was surprised also when I saw alot of warriors at the beginning. Warriors have existed since the beginning of rpgs and I figured many would like to try something new. But its ok because GW2 did not limited them to slice-n-dice anymore. Watch them them stay up longer because of their endurance and when you decide to run, well, they got you with their bow... Im just wondering what would farming be like in this new game.

    Man i just keep changing my mind, i'm officially gonna be a Elementalist, i don't know about race though. Picking ele cuz i wanna chill at the back seat and nuke everyone. :) I'd like to focus on earth and air. But it's pretty badass that fire gets to conjure a great sword, water gets bows - i am not sure what earth and air get unless the wiki has been updated.

    I have a feeling earth will get a hammer, air maybe a staff? There isn't that many options, know that whatever it will be, it is gonna be a weapon that is in the game

    Teeeef!

    I love the direction that ANet is going with this class, shying away from the typical DPS role seen from rogue classes in past games.

    Engineers need some votes!
