    I really do teeter on this issue, so I'm voting Paladins (always a huge fan of Knights and such).

    I'm also a hughe fan of Fighters, Rangers, and multiclassed versions of those.

    Mage...hands down best class in game. More specifically, the Wild Mage kit is best.

    Mage. Even if my spell selection approximates a sorcerer's *known spells* late in the game, I still appreciate the ability to customize spell selection for special circumstances.

    I enjoy playing heroes, not villains. As such the paladin and ranger are my favorite protagonists.

    I find it odd that so far ten people have voted for non-existant classes. There's no such thing as a "Theif" or a "Barabarian". ;)

    Felinoid - "Sorceror" ain't spelled right neither ("Sorcerer").

    I'm a bit suprised to see that the Bard class is up there fighting for the medals. My favourite class too though.

    With the limited options, I went with paladins, as the game is definitely geared towards the heroic classes as T2Bruno points out. That having been said, my favorite classes are typically multi-classes, with fighter-thief leading the way.

    @ Who ever dislikes my spelling - Buy me a spellchecker and then we'll talk.

    And I see nobody seems to like the monk. ;)

    Hmm, what does that say? "Spell . . . checker"? I wonder what that could be for? :shake:

    If I spelled barbarian "barabarian" its generally because I hit an extra key and I don't care about the fact that I made a typo. 95% of the posters can still understand what "barabarian" is being used as a token for and since communication can still continue, what's the point of anal-retentively checking one's spelling?

    Many people will take poor spelling as an indication that you're uneducated.

    Not caring doesn't help the situation.

    Look. That comment was ment as a joke, since nobody seems to get that I'll point that out. They were typos BTW. I type fairly fast. And the sorcerer thing, I always get that wrong. More habit then actually making an effort to spell it correctly.

    -Ignoring spelling mistakes and assuming that people understand what you're talking about leads to degrading language. Soon we will be spelling 'elite' as 'l33t'! The humanity!

    -Oh, and Bards rule!

    Paladins - specifically, cavaliers, for me. Great memories of chucking Azuredge at the undead throughout the game :D .

    favorite: torn between cleric and fighter. That said, my favorite run ever was a solo fighter/cleric!

    least favorite: mage/sorcerer. overpowered and unsatisfying. The only role I ever use for mages or sorcerers in my parties are summons or direct damage offensive spells.

    As for the spelling side-discussion: prescriptive grammar and spelling are strictly the domain of pedantic fools! The one and only point of language is to convey meaning, and if anybody was unable to figure out that "barabarian" means "barbarian", then that person should seek professional help immediately. :p

    Or what if people were to start spelling colour "color" or aluminium "aluminum"? What if it caught on in an entire country? Frankly, such horrors don't bear thinking about. I'm going to have to have a lie down for even suggesting it. :p
