Well, I'm settled in.
After trying warrior/ranger/thief for melee, and necro/mesmer/elem for a caster I find I don't really like any of them. Some for skills, others for aesthetics, lots of things just didn't click. Guardian was the class I was least interested in, but I finally tried it and WOW is it fun. Sword/torch is fast and interesting to play.
VKhaun = Human Engineer
VKhaun Vex = Sylvari Guardian
Just not sure which to do first...
