I usually play a wizard or a stealthy character, or in some cases both!
Most of the time I tend to pick a ranged archer type.
In every MMO / RPG I usually start off with a tank type class, and eventually move into a caster class after completed a game or reaching the highest level.
Always a thief / rogue. I've been hooked on playing that class since Thief: The Dark Project.
To be honest I always prefer the class of warrior. The name sounds intimidating and I've always loved playing them.
Be it table-top, LARP, console, or PC, when I play an RPG, I tend towards casters. Preferably caster that can both heal, and sling destruction.
In MMOs, I enjoy added complexity, so I'm always the healer and crowd control character. In single player RPGs such as Skyrim, I usually play a Warrior type character to keep things simple and basic.
When it comes to RPGs I usually end up playing some sort of range class
I am always melee cos I like to be in the action :)
I generally prefer to play either a caster, or a rogue. Two opposite ends of the spectrum, it seems like, but really, not all that different! Both require forethought before launching an attack (or a meatsheild for company, in multiplayer games!) due to their squishy nature. However, their high damage output and the fun of blowing up stuff really makes a game for me :D
I usually play as a mage or some other caster type class.
In most RPGs, I usually end up playing a ranged class, but in Skyrim, I tried making a sword & board warrior. The blocking mechanic and the perks that came along with it mid-to-end game were great!In the demo for KoA, I created a rogue and found it to be something different and fun as well. These two games really have opened up the way I pick my classes!
I like playing a variety of classes. I tend to mix it up in every game I play. I always try and add a little twist to the play style though. In Skyrim I played a thief style character but I wore heavy armor. Sure it added a little bit to the difficulty of that play style, but sometimes I just like to skip the stealth and go head to head with enemies. In World of Warcraft I play healers. I have 4. Some people find it boring but it's really all about decision making. Who needs the heal the most, who can hold out till you can get to them, and when the encounter is going south who is the best to focus on and keep alive to try and salvage the attempt. I enjoy the in the moment tension that heroic mode healing brings.
I usually play a rogue in RPGs as the stealth aspect of it seems so awesome, especially when you get that sneak attack off. However in WoW I seem to play my priest heals the most often.
Mage/Ranged is usually my class, I normally like to stay in the background and do my damage from there. I also adore the Healing class. In truth I will have a go with any class, but they are my favourite ^_^
================== I used to play any kind of stealth class, to be invisible. Afterwards I shifted towards being a distance fighter ========================================like hunters and balance druids. Went to heals for quite a bit, but then in the end. I went off to being any =============================================tanking class that can self heal and hold his ground against the masses of other creatures. Its enjoyable================================================ now and easy to say any class that have elements of being "Righteous" or good, and the ============================ =====================================ability to tank, I will love and play them as long as possible.=================================================================================== In short, I <3 tanking, and I'm sticking with it,===============================================
I frequently play rogues, because I love to sneak around and get the drop on things... I also like to play paladins when I don't have to RP the whole lawful good thing too much -- I love their frontline melee capability, and even though warriors/fighters might be more powerful, the paladins' holy powers are a great complement to their physical strength.
I love playing a healer, healing people of their wounds, and prevent people of dieing, or resurrecting after it!That's why I love my shaman, and use the elements to help me in this.Also, I love playing casters, while using elements from all over the world to do just that little thing to help me kill that monster!
I love playing assassin based melee chars, popping out of the shadows doing massive burst damage and then dissapearing again. :D I play a rogue in WoW obviously. I also enjoy playing warrior type characters, but defiantly not casters, casters are cowards!
WoW was my first 'real' RPG, with Paladin as my first real main. It's inspired me to be a Paladin, or try to be, in every other one I've played since. I'm not big on the religious aspects, but I freaking love the thought of a holy warrior powered by some flying spaghetti monster using that power to smite his foes.
