The All Important Question

What class should you play.... If by now you are still unsure of what class you want to play, try some of the following:
  1. Study and Research. - Check out everything you can about the different classes. Don't just read the basic introduction about each class, take it a step further and use Youtube Videos, Guides, and In-Depth Discussions to your advantage. Don't forget to read other blogs also. For example, Weekly Ranger and Quirky Quiescence may be able to help you out.
  2. Take Opinions with a Grain of Salt - This isn't to say that you should disregard forum posts and opinion based threads, but you should try to remain objective when making this decision. Take everything in, and then form your own opinion.
  3. Go Play It Yourself - If you have access to the beta, do yourself a favor and play numerous different classes. Just keep in mind that classes have been known to change dramatically by the time they reach the higher levels.
  4. Trust Your Gut - Choose what feels right for you. If you feel like you're having too many doubts about whether this is the right choice, repeat steps 1, 2, and 3 until you feel comfortable that you've found a class that works for you.
  5. Do NOT -
  • Pick a class because your legion is low on them.
  • Pick a different class than your friends, based solely on the fact that they chose your class.
  • Pick a different class because the one you wanted is the "over-populated" or "newbs only" class.
Hopefully by following this list you will be able to narrow your choice down to a class that is just right for you.

  1. Great post! I've been playing mmo for a couple years now, and I always do that even if I know which type of class I like.
