    I've been addicted to RPGs and MMORPGs. It's quite useful in isolating yourself from others while avoiding things. Er...that's not good.

    Anyway, the best most appealing class to me is the elementalist bladeslinger. Some groups call them rangers, but I really enjoyed the combination of mage and warrior classes as much as I enjoyed the "sage" both mage and priest.

    I enjoy playing MMORPGs. Like more RPGs, I like knowing that I accomplished something, even if it's as simple as getting a flight path or completing a quest, at least I did something today. They can also act as an excellent girl-friend replacement as well. I can't say I've ever started an mmorpg alone, for I have always played with real life friends. We would usually get together before we started playing and try to pick out classes that would do well with one another but mainly stressing what you wanted to play. E.g. I don't care what I play vs. I want to play as blah.

    I've never really been much of a pure spell caster in any of the mmorpgs I've played. I've always been either a dps class or support/hybrid class. I don't think I could ever play as a pure healer as well. I like being a secondary healer rather than a primary healer - there's just too much pressure. I like classes that can solo or group fairly well.

    My favourite class of all time was the Bard from Everquest. That class could do everything, but not well. Faster than SoW speed, levitation, underwater breathing, haste, resistances, mezzing, MPOV (gain the monster's point of view), invisibility. On top of that, the bard (if they were good) could juggle four songs together e.g. haste, resistances, str/sta, and dex+proc songs. Furthermore, switching between your instruments (each song could be further increased in power if the correct instrument for the song was played e.g. Selo's Accelerando or speed required drums) or dual-wielding two weapons.

    One of my fondest memories with that character took place in the second expansion The Scars of Velious. The zone Iceclad ocean had these snow cougars that would rarely drop these earrings that would sell for quite a bit. Bards have a pbaoe song and combined with speed, meant that one could kite mobs. Kiting meaning when you juggle 2+ monsters without them hitting you. Normally, I could pull about twenty of these cougars, the maximum number of spawnable cougars on the island, together and take them out no problem (once you aggroed something in EQ, you would lose aggro once you killed it or zoned-no matter how far away you run away from it within the zone). If you slipped up, you would die instantly. Well, Iceclad had three islands. I decided to pull as many as I could from every island. I managed to tighten or rather bunch them up close together and I hit my pbaoe song. Well, my computer crashed because of the spell effects hitting 50+ targets at once. Good times.

    Though EQ offered the best PVE carebear experience, Dark Age of Camelot offered the best PVP. I played as a Briton Mercenary and had a lot of fun with that. A mercenary was essentially a light tank that could dual-wield, charge archers and deal out massive amounts of damage.

    *On a side note, I wanted to add that most mmorpgs, especially WoW, have had the following jpeg installed:

    I just have to say, I can't remember off the top of my head what MMORP..G stands for but yes I have played them.

    And I have to say, it deeply offends my sensibilities when I'm role-playing in this fantastical world with fairies and demons and warlocks in medieval inspired garb trampling through archaic magical forests -- and the people you're playing keeping spamming you about Britney Spears and The OC. Or you see legions of pale blue-eyed blonde dervishes protecting their desert homeland.

    WTF people, let's keep the fantasy alive, nnkay?

    Seriously, what part of *role-play* don't people get? Is this just me? A typical SCA-er on a bad day would put you all to SHAME.

    I try to play on 'role play'' channels if it's an option but people still don't keep in character! Stop talking about your freakin car payments and how much you hate your boss -- unless he truly is an orc.

    My brother is a hard-core gamer (I don't buy games myself, I play them on his account) and he HATES the role-players. He told me in Everquest people would take the 'bard' class and then really act like bards. Like walk up to groups of people saying, "Gather round ye travellers and let me tell the heroic tale of blah blah blah" Haahaaha. Drove him nuts. I think it's hilarious.

    As an INXP he's all about strategy and how to level up the fastest or create the best combination classes and join and start guilds. Me? I just want to role play and come up with a believable character and yell "You'll rue the dayyyy!" every time I die.

    And OF COURSE, I always play as an Amazon warrior or at least a female warrior. Magicians are wusses. Actually, keeping track of all those spells and mana potions and always strafing back so enemies can't touch your pansy frail self it just involves way too much effort and is too confusing. I just want to run around/spastically hack slash/level up. In that order. Seriously. Let's not complicate things.

    Except in some games warriors are big dumb tanks that do too much or too little damage and it gets repetitive. I have discovered recently that usually magic users are the most damage dealing classes with the convenience of ranged attacks and oh my goodness I do love raining death and destruction in ever creative ways on baddies. Except the whole no HP frail pansy thing. Moving my character around the screen constantly to avoid getting hit is annoying.

    All in all, I'm sure this does speak volumes about my personality/type.

    So just in case there was some vestige of non-dorky respectability I had left, this post killed it. I am a supernerd who will stay up till the wee hours playing Guild Wars if my computer could actually handle it. Not only do I play these games, I get waaaaayyyy involved in character creation and role playing than I do with 'mastering the game' (OMG, you should see the level of obsessive detail I get about my Sims families...) I once researched names for my dervish and from Arabic it translated roughly to 'small arrow of justice'. How hot is that? Seriously. I had to restart that character 3 times because I couldn't decide on her hair... It looked good from the front but since you mostly see the back of your character's head when you play, I had to find something I could live with.

    Dammit, there I go again coming out of the dork closet.

    But it's okay -- because I am a writer!!! Playing RPGs is just an extended character development exercise for me! See???

    Wow, you managed to create a non-fugly face with the Oblivion Fugly-Face-Generator. I am impressed.

    That's Morrowind with a head replacer. I don't have a particularly good picture of my Oblivion one...

    I refuse to play Oblivion with a furrrrgly character. I have spent hours trying to make my female characters look 1) female and 2) Un-furgly. I thought my brother was playing as a slightly pudgy adolescent boy. But he swears his character is a "hot girl". Plus, I hate the LotR rip-off scenario. I much prefer Morrowind with its backwoods swamps and bizarre yurts.

    The dervish part also gets me as well a bit. I don't actually role play while in the world, but it does seem strange to create a character that doesn't fit in with their environment.

    (If anyone's interested, When picking looks and such, I tend to pick the characters with body shapes, hair styles, etc. that look most like the type of character in question, and secondarily how cool they look. This usually means that warriors get larger bodies than most, agility types like archers or backstabbing assasins/rogues get smaller, lean bodies, and magical types get the rest.)

    That's pretty cool, actually, it

    Agreed. Wasn't Cyrodiil supposed to be a jungle according to the ever-malleable lore?

    I don't think my Oblivion one is furrrgly, though. Am I wrong?
