Day 14 – Favorite character class
I have a few criteria that I prioritize when picking a new class for a game. Usually my first pick will be whatever the female option is. Thankfully more and more games provide gender options for all classes.
My second pick is usually any class with pets or skeletons, really bonus bodies of any kind. There is nothing more satisfying then running through the Diablo 2 world with an army of skeletons. My first official World of Warcraft character was a hunter and then later I moved onto a Warlock, both pet classes.
The third pick is usually ranged dps, most often magic based. I almost always pick ranged over melee. This includes healing classes putting melee firmly in last place. Pet classes > ranged dps > healing > melee.
I will say though that in games that allow me to pick multiple characters and form my own party, I rarely pick pet classes. Basically I like having buddies and when I have an entire group, pets aren’t necessary. Which is why I will usually go for the mage or wizard.
