I just don’t think I’ve found ‘my’ class yet, I’m all alts and no mains, and I get a little envious of friends and guildies that find a class and never want to play anything else. I get it all tangled up in my head. I’ll be excited about a class, but then I’ll hit a snag, major or minor, and can’t decide whether to jump ship, or stick it out and try to get better gear and see if it gets better, but then if it doesn’t it would be time wasted. But I figured with so much that changed with the expansion, it’s like everything’s a blank slate.
So I’m hoping I can get some advice from the folks, because I’ve been thinking about it so much I’ve reached the mental equivalent of a dog chasing its tail.
What I’m looking for in a class, based on what I’ve done so far:
Dynamic- I have to be doing something, and hopefully not something repetitive. If there’s a break in the action longer than a few seconds I tend to abuse my keyboard. (OMG WHY AREN’T THERE BUTTONS FOR ME TO PRESS O_O) I guess you could also say I’m attracted to a sort of high risk/high reward style.
Melee- For some reason I just don’t have as much fun on ranged classes. I’ve leveled a few to 80, and enjoyed them in PvP settings but don't really like them in PvE. I don’t know whether it’s the cast times or what, but I'm just more amused while punching a digital representation of something in the throat. I guess I feel like I’m more involved.
Utility- I like having a little something extra, whether it’s interrupting, snaring, cc’ing, whatever, but this would be more a bonus for me. I like being assigned to do auxiliary stuff in fights with interesting mechanics.
Offspec - It might be nice to be capable of doing something besides DPS, but is by no means a requirement since I can have other characters do that stuff.
After that it’s all fine. A little extra mobility might be a nice, but I won’t shoot down a class for it.
I’m not looking for a class that has the easiest time topping the damage meter, or is the flavor of the month. I’m just looking for something that, given the above, would be fun to play. So any constructive advice would be greatly appriciated.
