    Engineer and Mesmer, seriously?
    --
    Norn Thief, Charr Elementalist, Sylvari Guardian. Those are the ones I want to make. Asura and Humans don't really interest me. The other professions do, but I'll get around to those in time.
    Change that to Norn Thief, Charr Elementalist and Sylvari Engineer.

    I won't play char ever, ever, ever (and am tempted to start a bar brawl with any/every char I meet... hopefully full griefing won't be possible as a play mechanic).

    I'm curious to learn what racial abilities will add to the mix. Would I be short sighted to expect these to follow on from EotN, ie Asura to have energy management buffs, etc.

    Human everything with an extra helping of
    Asuran Elementalist
    Sylvari Theif
    Norn Guardian

    Today, after the info about the Engineer, I don't think I have to change my initial 4:

    Female - Human - Elementalist
    Female - Norn - Guardian
    Female - Charr - Ranger
    ______ - Asuran - Thief

    The Sylvari are still an option as an race for the Ele. The gender for the Norn & Charr is pretty fixed, too.

    PS: the runners up

    Female - Human - Mesmer
    ______ - ______ - Warrior
    ______ - Human - Engineer
    ______ - ______ - Necromancer

    Right now my expected lineup is:

    Human -- Elementalist
    Human -- Ranger
    Human -- Guardian
    Asura -- Engineer
    Sylvari -- (undecided)

    Three humans does feel a bit excessive, yet I do want to bring over my three oldest GW1 characters. Changing the race would require me to blow my own sense of immersion with some tenuous explanation of why the character has a racially-inappropriate name. Fortunately, there are enough variations in biographical choices that I'm sure I won't get bored playing out two-three human stories.

    One thing I dislike about choosing professions for the non-humans is that I hate playing to stereotypes yet I also hate bending over backwards to avoid it. An asura warrior does strike me as ridiculous, but the world probably doesn't need yet another asura scholar. Engineer seems to be a comfortable compromise that fits the asura quite well. Thief would work nicely too, but I'm not yet certain of my interest in that profession.

    I may end up re-rolling the sylvari a few times to try out thief, necro, and mesmer. If none of those ends up appealing to me, I don't mind repeating a profession, given that the training activities and any profession-related elements of the story are likely to have racial differences.

    Charr-Warrior
    Norn-Guardian
    Sylvari-Ranger
    Human-Thief
    Norn-Engineer
    Sylvari-Necromancer
    Human-elementalist

    Asura-Mesmer (Obviously not a released profession, but an extremely likely one, and it is also quite possible that if some other scholar were added instead, I'd go asura for it as well.)

    edit: also may want to talk to this guy, he's done a similar thing but with more graphs and such.

    Agreed. I tend to think of it as "what does the race need" and "how do racial abilities complement the profession". Asuran guardian makes more sense than warrior, and I'd think able frontlines would be in demand. Also, asura has golems that complement the classes that need more protection, so something like thief or ranger would work too (both use their smarts but in a different way).

    Ah cool.

    Making graphs is the easy part. Updating them on the web each time will take longer though.

    I am planning on a golemancer so probably Asura Engineer.

    Not sure about anything else yet.

    Asura engineer, charr thief, sylvari elementalist, human mesmer (yes, I'm sure the last profession is mesmer), norn ranger. Probably in that order.
