    Esper Rdps and second spec Healing.
    I think people are use to Healers being the easy role and I'm sure in Wildstar is actually gonna be more fun/challenging. I also feel in this game Healers are either gonna stand out and be really good or else really bad. They will need to dodge incoming attacks and aim their heals (actually watching the game) while it use to be a lot of staring at HP Bars.

    Warrior tank for me always played the RDPS class in MMOs so looking for a change.

    In every MMO I tend to start with casters/RDPS. Then followed by healers/support/hybrid classes.
    Never get to like melee much. Maybe I try tanking in this game.
    I will definitely test all classes before deciding on my main.

    cheers!

    My (very changeable) plan as of the last 5 minutes:
    -Chua Esper / "Medic" Healer - Main
    -Draken Warrior Tank - Alt
    -Mechari Stalker MDPS - Alt

    Glad to see so many people pick healers! :D
    I'm pretty undecided right now. I would have to see the two new classes.
    The one I think will use rifles, which looks pretty appealing to me.
    Probably either one of the new classes, stalker or esper...maybe...warrior....I don't really know at all when I think about it. lol. I will probably be some kind of dps though. But I can tank or heal also.

    I've always been a healer primary and occasional DPS. I tend to like healing/support roles the most, so that's probably what I'll go for.

    Ranged is also nice. Nuking things from orbit is really the only way to be sure...That being said, every once in a while it's nice to be a melee DPS and just smash some faces in. :D

    I haven't ever really been keen on tanking, just because I don't like a leadership position and most of the time tanks become leaders of groups/raids/etc since they do pulls and whatnot. I also prefer to stand at the back and see the entire playing field. Hard to do that when BossCrotchOfDoom is filling your screen. :cautious:

    Last game I played I was healer but kinda tired of healing and no patience for healing.
    So I will probably be esper or spellslinger rdps depends which one I like more.
    However warrior seems tempting but depends on what gap-closer skill it has etc.

    Either esper/one of the classes yet to announced healer or tanking. Though I'm leaning bit more towards healing since during my mmo career I have done everything else besides healing in the end game.

    Healer!:) Always play healer as I find myself enjoying the support role more than competing to be the best damage dealer.

    Well, thats kinda of a tough one... I'm playing with two other friends. One's a healer the other is undecided ( tank or dps) depending on what he chooses, ill pick the other role... I have experience with all 3 roles.

    As long as i enjoy it, doesn't matter what i play!

    I tend to stick with MDPS/RDPS although I find healing more rewarding. I can't wait to try and heal with the new combat system. No more hugging corner and healing. Gotta line them up so will take skill not how fast you can hit buttons

    I usually end up as a tank, the "if you want something done right do it yourself" kinda thing hehe, but I'm not sure yet it really ends up depening on what class i find the most fun.

    My main char will be a Spellslinger Healer.

    But I will probably have a tank alt as well.

    I usually end up tanking for raids, so will most likely play as a warrior. I like to have the option to dps as well. Of course I reserve the right to change my mind after I actually get to play the game and see the final two classes.
