Ok. WoW.

What was your favourite class there? List a spec(talents as well).

How did you play Skyrim? Battlemage(Heavy Armor+Destruction+One Handed)? Maybe Archer(Light Armor/Archery/whatever else)?

WoW. I played as Hunter. The pet selection appealed to me. But I eventually tired of it.
In skyrim, I did play it modded. But I have had a lot of Fun with Spells sword. Generally in Vanilla skyrim as a spellsword I used lots of Illusion, Alteration. Not much destruction (Destruction was extremely underwhelming). I did also factor in some stealth. My skyrim gameplay is pretty spread out

(I forgot my wow specs cause I quit a year ago)

Edit: I'll get more details to you.
(I've also had a build choice problem in just about every RPG game I've played. I spend like. Two hours choosing a race practically. AND THEN I SPEND A WHOLE MONTH PICKING A BUILD THAT I DON'T LIKE XD)

You could play around with the guild wars 2 codex to see what skills weapons and traits each class has.

http://en.gw2codex.com/

Or you could start 5 characters ignoring race and build just get to the character as fast as possible.
You could then run each for s day and see what appeals even jump to the pvp training area to see how skills work at lvl 80.

Once your pretty sure what you like dump them and start again paying more attention to the character construction.

I checked out the Warriors skills, I nomegusta'd. I wasn't excited and the skills were pretty plain. (personal opinion)

I think I'll do a overview of each class I play.
Starting with the one I played these past couple days.
THE RANGER.
Now, The ranger was very fun for me. I looked forward to the whole pet system and such. But it eventually tired of the pet and bow. It felt...Repetitive? I suppose I felt a lack a variety. A little bleak, The traps were fun to use. However to me they felt VERY situational. I was disappointed at the lack of Rifle usage for ranger.

Would I have fun with it? : I suppose, But I'd quickly tire.
Would I main it? : No.
Enjoyment? 6/10


(I'm starting to think It's going to be impossible for me to find a class I like!)

I feel your pain. My ranger is level 80 and it gets old really fast. The fact our utilities are either bland (sharpening stones, quickening zephyr), completely useless (spirits) or both (shouts) doesn't help either.

I got to the point where I no longer find any enjoyment in playing my ranger, however, due to time invested in playing him (fully explored Tyria, exotic gear, etc.) I just can't get myself to start anew with new profession.

I completely get where you're coming from. I played LoL for a long time and generally played tanky-derps and assassins. So I already managed to widdle it down to Warrior or Thief. Well, I like the massive variety of Warrior weapons, the Norn heavy armor, and the tanky-derp part of it. I didn't really enjoy the Thief armor for anyone (too trenchcoat/Assassin Creed-y), but I did like the massive amount of bleeding and jumping around in combat aspect (especially with daggers). But then I thought to myself "I only like one season of Thief, I'll get bored of that." Long story short, check out all the armors, find a weapon you enjoy, and pick a class based on that.

It sounds so simple .-. . And yet so far away. I've still stuck on this barrier of what classes do I really LIKE!? XD. It's horrible. I just keep switching through classes over-and-over .-. . Maybe I REALLY need to define things more. A wild goose-chase (With a dragon instead of a goose) is quite difficult e-e ALTHOUGH. I'm sure I will eventually figure this out. (Hopefully...)

Oh and, I had SO much fun with hammer as guardian. But I eventually got BORED with guardian (No offence Guardian players) And I believe they are the only 2h hammer users besides warrior .-.

When you get bored with one class, play another. And do so relatively extensively, until you get bored. Chances are you'll play your older classes with renewed interest later - and maybe find new ways to enjoy them again.

E.g. I got bored of my Guardian, started an Engineer. Started getting bored and started a Thief (originally I didn't intend for it to be a main as I hadn't liked it the first time I tried it and I was merely "test driving" it for a buddy) and ended up liking it so much I got her to max level. When I tried Guardian again my favorite greatsword felt so sluggish I almost deleted him, but decided to try out the faster, more mobile sword/torch and am enjoying the class once more.

Playing a new class for a while will not only be a nice change, but will also give you a renewed perspective on your other classes :D

Alright :) I'll go back to guardian, I haven't played that one in a while.

I know exactly how you feel though, I'm quite the altoholic and tend to switch classes all the time. If it wasn't for my RL buddy I'd haven't hit 80 on my thief yet :lol: I still switch classes a lot but since we're both max level I reserve my thief playtime for duo play now, and save my alts for soloing.

If you get bored again .. just try to play with your traits and weapons sets, so you discover some new game plays !

Otherwise, just dont delete the char you already put times on. I like every classes of that game, so it been really hard to me to find my main, anyway, overtime majority of my alt hit lvl 80 and get geared wich allow me to have some change ;).
