yah ranger is too op in EE.
and dignity, best way to choose your class is experiment with them. you can also look at guides/reviews/videos and try to get a gist on things.
if i had to recommend a class, i would say defense warrior. cause tanks will always be in short supply and somebody got a tank. you be the hero!
defense warrior and thief are nothing alike in terms of roleplaying. warrior is tank for party and thief is just dps. you can be dps warrior however, but from information from some of the alpha tester, dps warrior is not good and hopefully will boosted. if you wanna do lots of dmg, then i would say thief
Next time you read a post, look at the avatar and imagine it reading the post.
