    Default Most common class?

    In general, it seems to be Rogue > Mage > Cleric > Warrior, at least when I was playing around with the social commands in the game and doing searches on level ranges.

    It's hard to say what souls are involved, because the social tools do no include the ability to view them beyond their base class.

    I've heard some claim that Marksman/Ranger are overplayed. Of course, if you're playing a a Rogue, what other choice do you have for ranged attacks?

    Perhaps the least common would be a ranged DPS specialized Cleric? Warriors have Riftblade, which includes some ranged attacks, but I wouldn't bet on it being good DPS from ranged alone.

    I seem to see less mages kicking around, but that's just what I've seen on the server I've been playing in beta. Forums rarely are a true reflection of who actually is going to play what.

    I'd really decide what you want to play on ALL the souls in any given base class. Because that's what you're going to be able to play around with down the road.

    And in my experience on the server I am on, I see plenty of mages and rogues (hunters).

    Last beta, it seemed as if 75% of ALL players were marksman/ranger.

    My reply would be that as there are 4 classes and tens of thousands of people; all classes will have a lot of players.

    Tanks are needed but don't confuse role with class.

    Default Warrior popation will Skyrocket

    Warriors population will skyrocket once people figure out how good some of their souls are at PVP and that stealth for rogues is pretty useless in this game.

    Mage popultion will always be hurting unless warriors get their "get out of jail free" Void Knight spec nerfed.

    My guess is the warriors will always be extremely strong in this game though.

    There are a lot of Rogues, most play MM/Ranger/* and "dream" about swapping to melee at 50.

    There are a lot of Warrs also.

    If you want to be different, play a Mage. Mages will be top dps at 50 despite being outdps by Rogues and Warr at low levels. Dont let low lvl performance be an issue. Pyros and Lock/Necros will pawn in raids at lvl 50. Trust me.
