For you I'd recommend Guardian. It has great defensive supportive capabilities (and support is what you are missing) and brings things like AoE conditional removal and more AoE Stability to the table for PvP. With a Hammer Warrior and Support Guardian you are also bringing the all great Weakness + Protection combo for PvE.

Of course, you could always opt for something a little strange and go Mesmer. From my experience they are difficult on their own, but with the right team of mitigation and damage (war and ele especially) you will greatly benefit from their abilities.
As a mesmer you will become an excellent puller / distracter and have viable, if somewhat random, buffs and conditions all around.
Anything else and you'll likely be bored or find you won't use have your skills before it's time to move to the next group. Necro and Engineer will experience this, but you'll shine when a vet comes calling.

Like the poster above, with you as a Guardian you have a really formidable 3 man team. You could round it out with any classes really.
Engineer is also very versatile. Check out the Engineer forums--people seem to really have fun with their Engineers. It is an adaptable class. You can use a flamethrower or provide very good support with an Elixir gun.
Of course, play what you like. Things may change anyway. But Guardian or Engineer would make for a good team. Every group seems to have a Guardian nowadays.
Since your Elementalist friend wants the Boom and Warriors Smash, a hybrid class seems like it could fill whatever niche you need at the moment.
For PvE, I like the suggestion of Mesmer.

Disagree. Every profession being able to play every role is not the same as every group composition being optimal. People seem to be making this mistake a lot lately.
No profession has access to every boon/condition in sufficient quantity. No profession has access to every mechanic (such as boon stripping) in sufficient quantity. Furthermore, if you want to compete at a meta game level you have to make use of profession synergy (such as the Grounded trait).
PvE example: If you take 5 Warrior in to a dungeon you have little access to protection, making the composition less than optimal.
PvP example: If you take 5 Warriors in to SPvP you have limited access to boon stripping. Boon stripping will be required for most meta game team builds in SPvP.
