While making plans for what I'll try first when I get around to installing SWTOR, an idea occurred to me that might be useful to other MMO players. You know all those web sites and services that try to recommend new books/movies/music for you, based on what you already have or like? What we need is one of those for MMOs - not for the games themselves, but for classes in new games, to help us decide what to try first.
Basically, this thread is for "I like class X in game A, and class Y in game B; what should I play and/or avoid in game C?"
Personally, I like pet classes and stealth classes. My all time favourite class is the Guild Wars Necromancer. I also like GW Rangers; Hunters, Warlocks, cat-form Druids, and Rogues in WOW. (GW doesn't have any stealth mechanics.) Ranged DPS is OK as long as it's not so squishy as to be handicapped in solo play. I don't enjoy tanking. My first priority is solo PVE, group PVE content is secondary, and nothing on earth could ever persuade me to dabble in PVP.
What should I play in SWTOR?
