In Topic: Poll: Your most-played or "main" character

I really, really wanted to love the Engineer. Aesthetically, it is my favourite profession in the game. But I just couldn't love it. Not because it's weak necessarily, I was killing stuff fine. It's just... clunky. Awkward and clunky is how I would describe how it plays. It works, just not with the synergy or elegance of other professions. I mean, grenades are great AoE, sure... but it's not actually fun to spam ground targeted skills to no end. Turrets are also still a waste of time, and there are lots of other bugs with the profession.
that's the thing, I think (at least for me).  Grenades are a really effective way to play the class, and it's ground targeting all day long.  Sure, other classes use the mechanic (like my beloved staff and ground-targeted wells necro), but it somehow feels less spammy, even with the auto-cast on grenade 1.

Now that I have almost everything leveled (my hunter is straggling behind at 45) and mostly in full exotics, I've been going back and replaying them all.  My guardian was my "main" for quite a while, but I'm having way too much fun with my necro right now.  Wells and marks everywhere, and a screen full of white numbers - and I can outlast things that would have destroyed my guardian.

So, I randomly asked around why the Engineer is quite underplayed, I've had many different answers and so far I've only found lore breaking issues and answers such as 'lol my warior does more damag'.Still, for something that solid (especially in dungeons) to be at the bottom of popularity, it's a mystery. I thought there would be much more steampunk, alchemy, gadget, industrial fans.
My engineer is fun, but anything it can do, I have another class that does it better.  Right now, I am on an AoE kick. I started out with my engineer running grenades, but quickly swapped over to my necro.

Deleted my Mesmer didnt like it at all just felt odd.  Leveling a Necro now and its a lot of fun.  Even did some SPvP to see how I liked the class in PvP and had a lot of fun.  Just wondering when I hit 80 are Necros good farmers or can only Warriors/Guardians farm stuff? Every post I read about "Whos the best farmer at 80?" always says Warrior/Guardian.
Necro rules at farming.  Go with a wells build and staff, and you will be dropping so much AoE that you'll fill the screen with sparkles.  You'll also be fairly indestructible.

Cause monkeys can use "tools" to create new content.  Real devs are required to break down code and find where bugs lie.  It's a matter of money.  Monkeys work for bananas.

it's personal preference of course, but I switched from nVidia to AMD a while ago for the exact same reason the OP gives for wanting to switch to nVidia.  The grass isn't always greener on the other side.  FWIW my 7970 works great.
