    My ideal just happens to be split between professions..
    (Magical) Dual Pistols, rifle and Gun X Sword was what I was aiming for.
    And they're all spread out over Thief, Engineer and Mesmer.........
    (That is, I am assuming the Mesmer has some nifty gun magic)

    Anyways, it looks like I'll be maining a Human Thief. It's the closest to it.
    List in terms of how much play I expect them to get:
    1. Human Thief
    2. Human Elementalist
    -. Sylvari Warrior
    4. Charr Necromancer
    5. Asuran Engineer
    6. Norn Guardian
    -. Undecided Mesmer
    8. Sylvari Ranger

    Though I'm tempted to make the Sylvari Warrior a Mesmer now..
    We'll see how I feel after the open beta.

    Hope there's some Thief traits to make Elemental Bullets or something.
    That'll be another +1. Else I'll have to enslave an Elementalist while playing...
    Will also throw ALL OF MY KARMA at the golem battle suit vendor.

    Weird... Mesmer is the most popular right now. I wonder if it's just because it is the newest release or if it's just because numbers are so small.

    @RDarken: numbers are small, and it's a new release. But I think they've done a great job with the mesmer, making it a lot more visually interesting, so I can see mesmerism being a popular profession after release. Case in point, I was not planning to make a mesmer before the reveal, and now it ranks at 4, tied with elementalist and higher than ranger. It might drop in rank, but now enough to not make one.

    I now really really want to know more about racial skills. In particular, I want to make sure that elementalist, mesmer, and thief gets summons. Yes, mesmer has clones and phantasms, but I'd like my mesmer to also get a tank-worthy summon if possible.

    What do you have against the numbers 3 and 7?

    I tend to think the "flexible"/"hybrid' professions are the coolest (elementalist and engineer in Guild wars 2 fit this idea the best), though it is hard to make a solid decision, and I'll certainly try all the professions if I get the game.

    That is pretty typical for the new professions. (when i saw the poll i wondered whether this should be done again after a demo, or after some time.)

    There's a lot of misconceptions atm about what the new mesmer is about. I can see some people changing their mind (either way) once they figure out the mesmer.

    Hint: I expect the new mesmer gameplay to be quite a bit like the old mesmer, except that now it's a lot more visual.

    I never knew this! Is that a general practice?

    @RDarken - I've seen people use that notation before. A more standard would be to rank them like 1 2 3 3 5 6 6 8 or 1 2 3.5 3.5 5 6.5 6.5 8, where repeating (and missing) numbers indicates ties. The latter notation is nice statistically.
