I've a free character slot, because I deleted a never played character recently. Now I'd like some advice on what I should do with this slot.
That would be my ~5th attempt at playing a warrior. The previous attempts ended when I got bored by the gameplay (I felt like I was only running all over the place, trying to catch up with those kiting foes and I basically contributed nothing to the fights), or when the characters failed at surviving, because I was in a Frenzy and the foes thought it was a good idea to gang up on the character.
Frankly, I probably just suck at this sort of gameplay, but it would be a nice challenge to try to get a W to survivor (3). Like my final frontier, or something.
There is a face/hair combination that I find rather nice looking, too.
Once it's survivor (3), the character would most likely end up as a mule though, because of the "chasing foes" gameplay.
or a Paragon?
That would be the 3rd attempt at a Paragon. Previous attempts ended because it was my first character to explore Elona and it ran into a madragor trap in Arjok Ward and died; later attempt ended because Istan bored me to death. I had a bad headache from the Paragon back then, too, because I tried to keep Mending Refrain up and going on the whole team at all times (that was before all the nerfs.)
The gameplay is more matching my normal style (not running after foes, but standing back and supporting/whatever). It wouldn't be so much of a challenge to get it to survivor (3); but it would require a change of my teamsetup towards more physical characters instead of full casters. Something new and exciting, perhaps.
Issue is that while I have a face/hair combination that I like, I dislike the armor designs a lot.
I could see me play a paragon further than survivor (3), if I got around to figure out a good physical team.
or a PvP slot?
Well, about once per month, I feel aggressive enough to consider PvP as an option. A PvP slot would allow me to do that in GW instead of launching something like ETQW in such moods.
or a Perma-Pre character?
It's an option, but I know that it would bore me to death after a short while. Not really a good idea, anyway. Deathleveling would make me all mad at Anet or whatever...
... it's still something I considered to do with this character slot.
So, any suggestions?
Ah yes, currently I've got 3 mesmers, 1 monk, 1 ele, 1 assa, 1 assa mule, 1 necro, 1 ritualist. Mesmers and monk get actively played.
