I played as a rogue all the way through, its just there are chests in the beginning before you even get a rogue, not just that a mage is a pain in the beginning since your the main lead and they attack you while your trying to keep your distance. the warrior just is repeative, plus as the rogue, you get the coolest looking weapons i think.....

I went with Mage, but seriously regretting that choice. I'd say Rogue is the best option personally.

I loved playing as a Mage. I'm playing my second play through as a warrior and it is fun as well.

I've heard it both ways

I typically play Rogue/Archer in Western RPGs. I enjoyed the Archery skill tree in DA:O, so naturally I went for it in DA2. I was a little disappointed with the skills the Archery tree had, but not terribly. I tried the other classes, but not extensively. I think I'd enjoy Mage, but I don't own the game anymore :/

Played warrior first, was kinda fun. The new combat system was pretty good. Thinking about going rogue in the next run through. Got some DLC stacked up now

Mine is a tank, mainly because i dont use him in combat. I prefer to just let him do his thing whilst i use the other three and their skills as the AI just doesnt think clearly IMO

Me, too. I thought playing a mage was all kiting. I tried playing the warrior and rogue for the Mass Exodus achievement, and found neither as satisfying. Spirit Healer specialization + Anders was pretty much unstoppable.

I played through once as a dual wield rogue and am on my second play through as a mage right now. I'm really enjoying the flexibility that mage offers so far!

I've played as everything and I love being a rogue so i can open things but my favorite is being a mage with force and spirit healing specialization. I don't see the point in blood magic because i usually have more than enough mana to cast without running out.

DW Rogue Assassin. I tried out Duelist and Shadow, but found I have the most fun in aggro-generating double-daggered ability sprees, then stealthing away and leaving enemies stunned and disoriented. I don't think I could ever play as a mage, because then I'd have to use Anders as my healer in Act 1 as well as the rest of the bloody game (DANG he's annoying!), and I think a Carver Anders Fenris party would make me break the game disk in half.

I feel more connected to the plot and storyline when playing as a Mage in Dragon Age 2. Funny thing, in Origins I didn't like playing as a Mage and greatly enjoyed being a Rogue. When I first started playing Dragon Age 2 I was a rogue, but it just feels like hack and slash now. So I restarted and went with being a Mage. Much more enjoyable in this game!

I've played through a few times with each class, but Rogue is my favorite. I can never quite make up my mind whether I prefer dual-wielding (the combat moves are wicked cool) or archer (Hood's Message to the King is a very pretty bow...), though. My gf's fave class is mage, and I gotta say, Horror is worth it. Force class doesn't deal as much damage as I need it to for my play style.

I always choose the 'Tank' character in every RPG so I played as a Warrior. I do have to admit though, that playing as the Rogue was also very enjoyable, which is why I always brought Isabela with me in my party.

Rogue, all the way. There's just something infuriating about not being able to pick the lock of the chest in the tutorial stage.

I tried warrior and didn't like it much. Mage was good, but halfway through the game I just wanted to change it. Once I chose rogue, it was just the misadventures of Hawke and Isabella, searching Kirkwall for riches.

I played as all three classes and tried all the weapon subclasses, Rogue Archer was definitely the character type i enjoyed the most. The only bad part was no bows ever really surpassed the dlc ones so i just used the same bow through the entire game.
Never put of till tomorrow what you can avoid doing entirely!

I enjoyed all but my favorite was the Mage. I love the AoE spells, it's so great when you enter an area and a ton of enemies spawn and you can target all of them at once and just destroy them.

I honestly think the story is more compelling when you're playing as a mage. Sadly, there's a price to pay: Carver.

Whiney, useless Carver.
