    Title says it all!

    Long-range fast movers (assassins, thieves, lupins) for me.

    You all?

    High damage/High speed. Who needs defense anyways, just be pro at hit and run and there's no problem.
     
  3. Close range attacker. I love melee.

    voted all except healer. i don't want to stay in the background just healing and stuff. i'm mostly with bows/guns and assassins/thieves.

    my other choice is the merchant/mehcanic/machinist type.

    in RFO Ph
    i have three characters, one is a Rider(rides mecha, and can craft). next is the mage(yeah the mage, the nukes), and lastly my fave, my Saboteur(rangers that has hide and can use throwing knife to backstab and my best weapon, the traps)

    i like melee too but only if they have good moves.

    I always go for melee characters, usually swordsmen, though I occasionally go for the rogue or archer. I rarely if ever use a mage or healer. This is for MMOs obviously, in traditional RPGs it's suicide if you don't have a balanced party.

    Depends.
    On MMOs I go for assassin-type characters. I kicked ass as an assassin on ragnarok online back in the day.

    On any other RPGs I typically tank myself out with massive armor and the biggest, strongest weapon I can find and just wreck shit.

    I love the Archer archetype. Every RPG I play I put some sort of archer as my first character.

    High-Critical fast movers.

    despite having a low chance of actually dealing a critical blow, its good to know that you can run the fastest and jump the highest while actually still hitting the monster despite having shitty attack.

    for mmos I'd always pump speed and attack. my defense would be shit as but I'd still be awesome because I can attack real high-like. [​IMG]
