What class is the most fun?

I have yet to play this game or purchase it, but this game is incredibly good looking, interesting, and intriguing to a strategic action combat hardcore gamer like myself. Now, let's get to the point. I am a melee specialist. I'm a WoW paladin and warrior, UGS user in Souls games, and I even play a striker titan in Destiny. I love melee, but neither the warrior nor the Giant look to be my playstyle. I prefer a beastly tank with tons of damage output with massive weapons, so I'm assuming the giant is my thing, but I am unsure of which class would be the best for a melee specialist. Probably warrior or giant. like I said, but I feel that I will most likely try out the wizard because I am impressed by the gameplay I have seen so far. Ninjas aren't my thing, neither are female characters(not sexist, just need a male because I'm a male, I need to feel male in games), unless I find that gameplay is so incredibly overwhelming that I should play a certain class. I guess the main point of this is just to ask the following question: what would be the best class for a tank-loving melee specialist?

SO tanking right? than Valkyrie might be for you. she doesn't have the flashiest of skills but from what i hear she is the best tank and (i believe i heard) the top pvp spots in Korea are being dominated by them. but i could have misheard because i basically only focus on witch/wiz info haha.

but if melee tank is your thing lthan have a look at her and see if it fits your playstyle. you can also find some pictures for her awakening weapon and it looks GREAT

Keep in mind the classes will be getting what's known as an "awakening", which is an entirely different skill tree for a new weapon. Granted you won't see this till after you reach level (53 or 56?), but this will change gameplay significantly depending on which class you decide to go with. The Warrior will be receiving a Greatsword which will likely allow for massive damage/AoE, while the Giant/Berserker will receive an Iron Fist Cannon which will allow him to Single Target Burst better. The Valkyrie will be getting a lance which I assume will be for a little bit longer ranged Single Target Burst. So the question you need to ask yourself is whether you can stand to wait until the Level 50's for the awakened system (which probably won't be in directly upon launch I would think), or if you want a certain playstyle while leveling into the 50's.

Giant with or without Awakening. Warrior with Awakening.

Wizard is an old frail man.

That can kite you for days, blow you up if you misstep, and heal his entire team back to full given the chance. Old and frail, but powerful and useful. However not his thing if he likes Paladin's and Warriors from WoW.

Kite who for days? Teleport is decent and Evasion is fine, but that's about it as far as kiting. Most classes are much faster in getting away and to an enemy.

Only 46 on my KR Wizard currently (riding my horse as I type) but think many are going to be a bit disappointing as I see Wizard over hyped a bit, at least for PVP.

I've watched some decent higher lvl Wizard/Witch PVP and it is mostly dodging the entire time as if they stop, they probably going to die within a combo or two. Although same could be said for most classes I guess.

Takes some decent skill to not only stay a live, but kill someone else as well, at least in 1v1. Larger scale stuff it can be easier to sit back and blow stuff up, but once the anti-caster/range classes get added, will be much harder.

Even though I like casters, I'm used to be more offensive (probably like OP) and not sure yet if I'll stick with this class for launch. Hoping the Awakening helps.

Thanks for this guys, from watching many videos, reading those replies, and studying forums, I have decided that the berserker is the best class for me. High damage and smashing people into the ground always works with me!

Tamer is really fun. The combos just flow together and you're flipping all over the place non-stop. It's a fun class. I'll keep playing one as an alt, but I switched to Wizard since I just really, really prefer ranged classes. Melee I would go Tamer though.
