If you guys remember, on this part of the forum and asked for help choosing a main. I chose a guardian and have it at 80 with full exotic gear now after 90 hours of gameplay. However I just use it to farm gold in CoF. So now I need a new toon. I started a mesmer(Lv.15) with my buddy but I only play it when he's on because I'm trying to get him to 80 too. I started an engineer but got bored of it at Lv.14. I'm just looking for a profession that's nice at soloing with good support since that's what I love playing. Guardian's fun at support, so is engineer but eh... I need a partner for it tbh. So any suggestions? I'm up to try anything since I'm on break and I'm bored. :P
Of those you listed, ele's are the best at support. While you can play a support warrior, ele's are by far the strongest support option of those you listed. By swapping attunements you can go into healing, or control, as well as do some decent damage. But be warned, not everyone finds soloing with an ele easy. It's a challenging profession to learn. Good elementalists can do most things in the game. Bad elementalists, and there are many, complain a lot. lol
A lot of it has to do with switching attunments and remembering what weapon skills are available under each atttunement. Remember, ele's don't get a weapon swap, so you're locked into one weapon once you enter combat. Which means you have to remember to change before combat, and that means knowing what all the skills do. Ele's have four times the weapon skills of any profession per weapon.
My wife loves swapping in and out of attunements doing different things at different times, often during the course of a single battle. Me...not so much. lol
