See, i was afraid this was going to happen. Why did they have to make Asura & Sylvari special by excluding them from testing until now? Now everyone wants to play one ...

Anyway, i will play an Asura [something]. Probably Ranger, Engineer or Elementalist.

For launch, probably:

Race: Human

Class: Engineer

Weapons of Choice: Pistol/Shield with Bomb Kit (Traits/stats focused on control and damage)

Interest: sPvP, Dynamic Events (lots and lots of Dynamic Events), Dungeons

Alts: Asura Necromancer, Norn Warrior, Sylvari Thief, Charr Ranger

During the last BWE, I still have three professions I havent experimented with: warrior, thief and elementalist. My focus will be on those for that event.

General Interests: PvE with Friends at first then when higher level hitting WvW. Bits of sPVP on the side.

Well this BWE i've made more balanced builds and less glass cannon builds for pvp. As far as what i'm going to play? Every profession except for the mesmer, guardian and ranger. I dislike all three and i'm pretty sure that this will not change anytime soon so they're OUT. I have a build prepared for each of the other professions however. Most will be sylvari and asuras...maybe one human thrown in there as well.

Human elementalist for my main.

If I ever play another character, a Sylvari is tempting. But elementalists are so versatile that other professions aren't terribly appealing, Rangers and necros don't offer much that elementalists don't have as well; I don't like melee much; and engineer just feels clunky.

Well after the BWE I'm settled on Asura for race.

Since last BWE I was planning on Rifle Warrior, so saved that for launch and played Mesmer and Guardian. Mesmer wasn't to my liking, but playing Guardian made me fall inlove with it all over again.

So it's down to Warrior vs Guardian for me. Again.

Builds will probably be Rifle/Hammer or Rifle/Double Axe for Warrior, and Sword n Board/Greatsword for Guardian

After playing the class this last beta weekend, and totally falling in love with the versatility, I've settled on rolling a Human Elementalist as my main. Staff was by far my favorite weapon, and I'll be using it 90% of the time.

I was actually surprised that I enjoyed the Sylvari as a race. They won't be my main, but I think my main alt will be a Sylvari now.

With all the jokes about "smoking a Sylvari" in the starting area I cant be bothered to take them srsly because the first time I read that I actually loled. I dont know whats more funny... Vanilla WoW Barens chat or the Sylvari starting zone. Only time will tell.

I'll probably roll one just for kicks.

After playing in this beta I was really disappointed with the changes to the mesmer. It was one of my favorite classes in GW and it plays so differently now I probably won't be making one. I did enjoy the necromancer as that was my other favorite profession in GW and will definitely be rolling a human necromancer. I also played an asura elementalist and really enjoyed that so those two characters I will role when the game comes out.

Ranger, engineer, and warrior I am also looking at.

After playing around in the beta some more, I'm between Mesmer and Thief.

Both are great fun, with lots of movement abilities, stealth, trickery, and interesting utilities. Thief is just very fun to play, shadowstepping all over the place, kiting mobs, etc., and Mesmer just looks like one of those classes that I can really get into and explore how different utilities can be used to change my gameplay.

Both have provided the most entertaining fights. I LOVE using the Sword/Dagger combo, and constantly shadow stepping to the enemy, then kiting, and porting back to where I started using shadow return. And playing the Mesmer in the Bercilak fight was hilarious. I loved how he just kept going for the illusions.

But I'm a little concerned about certain aspects of both. I only do PvE, so illusions right now are pretty much FUBAR if there's more than two people around the area, and I'm a bit concerned about how the Thief's survivability will evolve further into the game. Sure I can survive quite well enough at level 10, but what's it going to be like at level 80?

So yeah...it all kind of depends on how things look at release, especially with the mesmer since they said it's one of the classes that needs the most work before release.
