I've only played 3 characters. SK, BAR. and Ranger.

So far i like the Ranger the most. Not too many spells, but fun to play and
the bow power is hot.



Anyone?

Really, i always play the warrior first on all action/rpgs.

i think the one i like the most was in D&D.good spells to aid in melee.

anyway, after that, usually i play the archer or ranger in this case.

I always thought that the cleric and wizard where the most fun. and i would put ranger 3rd because its fun to shoot things and they have critical hit with a bow Twisted Evil and barb 4th because its like a shadow knight done right. and last must be shadow knight because the shadow knight is like a barbarian only with crappy soells and none of the cool things like dodge and critical hit ect. all they have going for them is raise skeliton and MAYBE convert undead whitch is basiccaly a uber crappy convert enamy. and the selestial hamer could kick the skeletons ass. i hate that skeleton Mad

I agree with the SK not being worth much. The only good spell they have is
Harm Touch and when you finally get it maxed it can't compete with a good bow.

Order of funness
1. Wizard. I like fillng the screen with firestorms.
2. SK, partially because he's the weakest character in the game so it's a challenge, and partially cause I like to watch my pet "Kenny" stumble around and ineptly try to kill things
3. Barbarian. When I'm feeling lazy, it's fun to just mow everything down
4. Cleric. A good character once leveled up.
5. Ranger, only fifth because I haven't started one yet

Sk got such a high vote b/c of his disease trail; Its my favorite spell in the game.

Oh yeah, shadow. It is the person that is corrupted.

Obviously we have people who haven't leveled a shadow knight here. While your actually having to hit buttons to kill mobs, my shadow knight can just cast disease sheild, engulfing darkness, sit and block and mobs die. If I choose to swing at them then they drop that much faster. The skelie isn't used to TANK he's used to tie up enemies till you get to them. If you think disease bolt stinks i think you should look again. Not only does it do damage and DoT it also caused the mob to slow a bit. Above and beyond that, Harm touch is the worst shadow knight skill... its useless.

Almost forgot to add... play a barb or a ranger if you want to breeze through the game with no challenge. If you want to actually have to stratigize, play a cleric, a wizard, or a shadowknight.

I've leveled a SK. He was my first character, so my inexperience in the game probably made him slightly less fun. Still, holding block doesn't sound like fun, sounds like barbarian tactics. Mabye that's why I didn't stack it. Disease trail is still my favorite skill in the game, but it isn't enough for #1. The wizard owns!, well...he's the most fun to play with at least, in my opinion.

Ive only played the Cleric so far, but I did look over all the characters carefully before I picked it. I am playing him more like a Paladin than a Cleric though. But since I can't really rank them in favorite , since I havent played all, I will list the order I intend to play

Cleric
Shadow Night
Ranger
Mage (I think he would be the most challenging though, wich is a plus)
Babarian

Well I've played both a Barbarian and Ranger about halfway though the game and then gave up on them. Barb was too plain, and I don't like the idea of the bulk of the Ranger's good spells being special arrows, and not being able to weild staffs. I just finished Adventurous with a Cleric yesterday, and that was fun. I've been watching a friend play a Shadow Night and that looks even better then my Cleric. And in response to an earlier comment. The only way a SK and a Barb are even related is that they have no weapon restrictions. I'm gonna try a Wizard just to see what it's like but not having ANY defensive spells doesn't sit too well with me.
