Do you find it difficult to play a role outside of your typical class choices? This can be in an MMO, MOBA, single player RPG or any other game that uses class as a distinction for gameplay.
After thinking about this prompt for awhile I don’t think I have a typical class choice. If anything I may tend to lean toward ranged or jack of all trades classes. My tendency towards jack of all trades classes probably has to do with the fact that most of my MMO career has been spent in RuneScape where there are no defined classes and you can take on any role you want depending on the skills you’ve trained. Although, RuneScape does not really offer any kind of support role so it’s either dps or tanking. Also, besides RuneScape I have never really progressed very far in another MMO, so I’ve never invested time into tanking or healing. Guild Wars 2 is probably the farthest I have progressed in another MMO where I am currently level 57, but there I am playing a ranger.
When I try a new MMO I try to keep an open mind. I may do some research into the classes, but I try to keep the final decision for character creation. I am completely open to trying out tanking or healing, but I have never stayed in another MMO long enough to go beyond mostly dps, and a little healing. I think now I have talked myself into needing to set a goal at some point to seriously invest time into a tanking class and a healing class, although I’m not sure which MMO to choose.
