What is your favorite class? Do you play a new type each game that comes out or is there always one type of class that you tend to favor?
|Jestro the Hobbit Hunter (Lotro)|
Ultimately, any class that is ranged DPS is my class of choice. In my first MMO, Lord of the Rings Online, my very first character was a hunter, pewing pewing with a bow, staying as far back as possible and I prided myself on using traps and crowd control to wipe out any enemies before they reached me. Since switching servers and playing a warden, even that I play as a ranged class, preferring Javelin over spear but the hunter will always be my favourite.
|Jestro the Asura Ranger (Guild Wars 2)|
In Guild Wars 2, naturally Ranger is my main and following the short race I so love in LOTRO, that the Asura was a natural choice. Despite Longbow being the favoured weapon among most players, I always preferred short bow so have to get a bit closer but it feels a lot faster to me, and the bleeds are awesome!
|The Punisher (Marvel Heroes)|
The third MMO that I’ve spent more time than others is Marvel Heroes and naturally I looked for a ranged class. Hawkeye would be the most likely canditate but I absolutely hate the character in the Avenger’s movies (Give me Green Arrow any day, but sadly DC are not welcome in the Marvel Universe for some reason) So, going a little more modern, I tried out the Punisher. I’ve always been a fan of the character and it suits me down to the ground. Pew Pew with big explosions – what more could a guy want?
|Elbereth the Elven Ranger (Neverwinter)|
It’s been a while since I played, but Neverwinter was once my game of choice and when I first played, there was no ranger class. I played a Rogue for some time which I recall had some ranged skills, but when the Ranger class came out I jumped on board. Sadly I stopped playing not long after that, so never gave the class a fair crack, but maybe one day I’ll jump back in, the Ranger will be my main.
