    So everyone knows I'm not in the game yet. I'm hoping to rectify that soon (like... after Christmas). Anyway, it's become apparent just from the chatter here on the forums that the Hunter is a popular class because it's relatively strong. My question is, what other classes are similiarly viable, though not necessarily as widely accepted? I always aim to be different, but I'd rather not do it Diablo 2 style, where I was the token Necro that couldn't kill anything...

    I like my mage. Mages deal the most damage in the game... but they are very weak close in, so you end up dying more than other classes. Because of my damage, I can solo very easily.

    I don't know about the other classes. I played a warrior during the first stress test, but they have been redone since then.

    You confused me for a bit there, I thought you were having social issues and couldn't get game at school.

    Then it all made sense.

    Mages = Low health range nukers
    Rogues = Low armor melee nukers
    Hunters = Range nukers that have pets to occupy the mob and hold aggro and which have better armor than rogues.
    Priests = Heal, summon, support class and mediocre nuker
    Paladin = Warrior/Priest hybrid
    Warrior = Huge health aggro holder with blah damage

    I play a rogue and I can pretty much destroy anything at my level and up to two above.

    man...i would think warriors would do the most melee damage. I mean...hell...they're f'ing warriors man! A rogue should get the sleath melee damage, but one on one a warrior should kick the shit out of a rogue. I think sniper when I think rogue, i think marine when I think warrior.

    Yeah, when I was playing a mage in open I could drop the mob before he even reached me.

    The nice thing about fire spells is the range. I wish I had that kind of range on my frost and arcane spells... I think they are 30 yards.

    Is that all, I know other mages that can go 46 yards and besides it leaves you with a burning sensation. ^_-

    I could just say that I can attack at 50,000 yards outdoors but I don't use eye of the beast that often. Though my cat caps out at the max distance for targeting a mob (as do other pet classes.) :p

    I am a hunter and can solo mobs 3-4 levels higher although its difficult. I have been very impressed with the mage and rogues in this game. Their damage dealing is very impressive. I have also heard Paladins do extremely well but i think they are targeted to get nerfed in the near future. Hunters are fun though, i have thoroughly enjoyed playing this class. Just pick one, they all do fairly well from what i have seen. We dont have a priest yet do we?
