    Chars you just can't play

    Are there any? I personally have a hard time playing others than the Necromancer, and here's why...

    1. I can't play as a female character. I like to incorporate a little roleplaying, and it doesn't work with a different gender. Assassin, Sorc, Amazon out.

    2. Nobody who is an idiot or a do-gooder. Barbarian, Paladin out.

    This leaves us the Druid, which the the only character along with the Necro that I can bring myself to play as. Similar problems? :laugh:

    I can't bring myself to play the Barb. I don't know why, I made one before and I just didn't like it.

    I play with all the chars, but I like casters more so I a lot more casters and ranged chars than melee chars.

    I can't play hammerdins.
    There's just something about using the most popular character, I can't do it. I never made a warrior/monk in Guild Wars either.

    I dunno.. I usually can't play dull common builds. Not because I don't have the ability, I just don't LIKE to. I like to have a little flavor with my characters. Take, for instance, my latest - a high def sorc. 10+ in shiver armor, the rest in the lightning tree/FO. Courpsemourn for armor, along with a defiance merc and high def gear. I like characters that either have lots of minions, or have good killing or tank powers.

    I wouldn't say that I can't play any certain sort of character, but I find that I get extremely bored of almost any one-trick pony build. Pure hammerdins are entertaining, but I can't play them just to have fun, they're only useful for doing things. I'm currently building several one trick ponies - a frenzy barb, fury druid, bone necro, and orb sorc. All I expect will do well, and I also expect I will delete every last one before long, because I need something that does multiple things.

    any necro
    any sorc
    any druid
    any assasin

    -melee assasins require godly gear to barely get by in pvm, trappers are boring
    -sorcs are one trick ponies that are only good for mf
    -necros are generic summoners or casters except they require godly gear if a caster
    -shapeshift druids are boring, elemental druids are everywhere

    all casters suck, all +skill item dependent, wow how fun......

    I can't play any summoners at all, sitting back while they do everything is INCREDIBLY boring.


    I've also never gotten an Amazon higher than level 20; The low level skills just never seemed to be enough. ...but then again, I've killed Ancients with a sorceress using only level 2 glacial spike and static

    Regarding sorcs: I disagree. I've got a lvl 64 lightning/FO/high def/CE (thanks to Corpsemourn) sorc that is a blast to play. Plus, you've got enchantresses, ES sorcs, and more..

    Regarding necros: I've got a pnb necro at lvl 68 that has no problems even with poor gear. For example, he still uses a normal twitch for armor, and could easily just go naked. The most expensive piece of gear he has is a homunculus. I've got a summoner at lvl 85 that plays wearing ptopaz'd normal armor and a gull dagger :) Pretty much all my characters except for my sorc use gear that they found on their own, for the most part.

    Regarding casters in general: My sorc has only +4 to skills, soon to be +6. It'll end out at +7. I never use any skiller charms on my characters.

    To be "godlike", sure, you'd want to have quality gear. That isn't necessary to have fun, however.

    For some weird reason I just cant play amazons. Maybe because they have cellulite.

    1 class i never got into was the druid. I've made a windy (boring.) and that sucked.

    Fire druid is quite fun, but just not viable for good PvM purposes.

    Hammerdins are good, if not overpowered for PvM, that's why I hate using it.

    Strafe/LF hybridzon is the way to go!

    I am benevolent, and like all characters the same.

    Ok, I am not, but I do play all 7 classes.

    All varieties of Assassin seem pretty dull to me. I really dislike Paladins, on principle, and would never play one for fun, but I'm too poor to make any other uberkilling character. I wouldn't play a Sorc for fun either, unless I had enough wealth to make some weak builds viable. Zons get old after leveling to 80.

    I really like summoners of any kind, and monstrous tanks like barbs and shape-shifters.

    i like to make uncommon characters mostly for pvm, i like to make melee most but pally's are way to expensive, n there is only two types of barbs that are good are there are tons of each, so it brings me to make a wwsin mwhha

    ever since i started necros were my favorite character. at first i didnt like sorcys cuz they seemed boring, but eventually i played on and i rather liked it. this happened with all the charcters ive played. i saw a character ive never played, didnt like it, eventually played it, and loved it. this goes with some exceptions though.

    I play all cept for assasin. Who wants to lay traps (reminds me of a farm without a good cat), and charging up moves is too slow action for me. I just simply find them not up to my standards. The only thing I like about them is the "Shadow Warrior" summon that uses its own skills. Good idea for skill I think.

    I can't play Druids, they just look way to gay for my taste (esp. in chatroom).
    Also kinda bored when it comes to necros.
