What's your (main) character's class?

I'm curious what sorts of classes people are playing as, and what focus/specialisations you're using for each class.

Also, if you reply with a message, write in how much you enjoyed the game (mostly in terms of combat). I wonder if there are some classes that are more fun to play.

Vote and comment away.

In first play-through was a Warrior and I hardly ever die...now playing through as a rouge I die more often, but It's still fun. I enjoy the game tremendously.

As always my OCD requires me to play every class, however I find the rogue the most fun by far .

I started with Duel Weapon as my focus, going into Assassin later on, with a point in Miasmic Flask in case I need to stun and run.

I liked combat with my Mage and Rogue the best so far; I found the warrior a bit repetitive in comparison. Obviously the Mage has much more AoE potential over the rogue, and I play my Mage as such, killing 10 enemies at once with my awesome spells of death! My rogue is customed to be more single target, so I blow up an enemy, then pop up behind another and go to town, leaving me two very different combat styles in the process, both of which I enjoy greatly.

I agree with this, which is partially what made me want to hear what other people thought.

Personally, I love the Force mage school. There's something weirdly satisfying about constantly re-arranging the shape of the battle to let your allies effectively use their abilities to maximum effect, even if you're not doing a huge portion of damage yourself. It's probably the most rewarding combination of destructive force and tactical nuance I've experienced in any game.

2H Warrior. Specializations: Beserker, Reaver.

Toward the end of my game, my warrior could attack at blistering speed: Haste + Barrage + Rune that increases attack speed + Fervor = bonafide death dealer.

Finished it once as a Rouge, got about halfway as a Warrior and finished it about 4 times now as a Mage. Just find its more fun to be a mage then the other 2 classes which is odd as it was my least favorite in Origins.

Wink Rouge Rules.....

I think the rouge is the best class. They seem to be the most well rounded in all around skills and attributes. They are fast, agile and can use poisons, set traps be stealthy. I just always seem to prefer this class over the rest.

I love my rogue on Origins more, but my rogue is still my primary on this one too, even if she wasn't the easiest of the playthroughs.

Mages all the way. They are the most versatile of the characters(most difficult to play with as well)

Rogues are a close second, but only because you can open that first damned chest during the intro of the game! There really is nothing more infuriating than being unable to open a chest/door or unsetting a trap.

Like you, I started off as the Warrior and found that the game was much easier to get through than with the other two classes. As a Rogue and Mage I died using those classes as opposed to my
Warrior where he didn't die at all.

My first playthrough of the game I played as a Rouge, but I find Mage to be much more fun with all of the spells.

Warrior is the easiest... loads of health. Rogue then mage. i prefer mage because of so many spells at your disposal.

I normally always choose the warrior in these games. So I went for Rouge for a change. I'm not used to having to watch my heath...

I love the Mage class. I'll be doing a second run thru with a female mage and just use the other two classes to get to kirkwall and that'll probably be it.

my main is a warrior. based on Aragorn, he's a 2-hander and looks sorta like him, and i chose all good options. im pretty satisfied with that playthrough and will carry it on to the next game, my only regret is not recruiting Isabela in this file, because i couldnt find her at all at the bar (i checked several times) LOL.

my alt is an "evil" mage (what can pass for evil in the confines of DA2 at least), and originally i wanted to base him off Richard the Warlock, but theres really no way to do that very well given the clothing options, so he's just a mage now i guess.

i feel like warriors were done much better in this game and mages were nerfed a bit too much. i really miss having Combat Magic and being able to equip warrior gear.

Rogue.

Was a Rogue as my main in Dragon Age, and was one for my first playthrough as well. I also am going to complete the game as all classes.

So far I've played as a sword and board warrior and a Rogue archer. Warrior gameplay becomes a bit repetitive due to their low range of abilities. I loved playing as my archer. I used the assassin and the shadow specialisation I love the combination of pinpoint strikes and pinpoint precision.

I went with the Rogue archer as my main character on a good run. And a 2H evil warrior for my secondary character. I usually go for the mages but I just did a quick run through with the mage this time.

Still on my first playthrough, but my first choice was a rogue. And I found it to be a very good choice, enjoying it a lot. I think my next playthrough will be as a mage, and my last playthrough will be as the warrior. I enjoy the game a lot, first game I have been addicted to in a very long time. There's just something about it I enjoy very much.

I played as a 2H Warrior, then again as a daggers Rogue, and I'm in the middle of a third playthrough as a Mage. Warrior is the simplest and easiest, you have a ton of health and all you really need to do is walk up to the enemies, spam A, and mix in a special attack every now and then. I played on Casual too. I admit that in Dragon Age I'm mostly interested in the story, not the combat strategy, so I didn't mind playing it essentially as a hack-and-slash game.
