    Talking Best support class?

    What's the best support class atm? When I say support class I mean all kinds of support.

    I found Bard to be the most fun. Granted, I havent tried some of the other support classes (archon i think is one), but I say try Bard first. tried one in Beta and would probably still be playing that one, but starting from scratch I decided to try something different.

    I tried killing a bard with my Inquisitor/Sentinel/Warden
    it's like I can't do any damage to him. He got like a million buffs even though I debuff him all the time.
    He was 4 levels lower than me.

    His buffs also are relatively short duration overall. Thats the tradeoff, lots of easy to apply buffs, very short duration for them. And inquis/sent/warden is a damage dealer?

    Bards and Archons are amazing support classes though both giving alot of awesome to their groups at the expense of getting to enjoy the game quite as much by smashing face =p

    I bet he had riftstalker as his off soul for all the sweet survivability benefits (like +30% healing taken, 15% endurance, 6% damage reduction etc.) A bard that knows how to play and stay out of the melee-fest will always be an incredibly difficult adversary to take down.

    I do plenty of dmg with my inquisitor, I will use the others to heal myself/others in pvp and dungeons.
    Slow, debuff, dots, dmg
    heal, buffs, shields (later)

    Beastmaster is an outstanding support class people dont usually think of, they actually have more buffs than anyone. They can keep up str, endurance, dex, ooc run speed, stealth detection, stun duration reduction and either an atk or armor buff all at the same time, permanently. And the bm and kitty do very good dmg as well and can offtank. If you already have plenty of heals I'd take one over a bard anyday. Of course if you only have 1 healer a bard is the best all around support there is.

    imo the best support class is dom.
    -Transmogrify (can be instacast and made to not break until quite a bit of health has first been removed)
    -Damage shield
    -AoE Silence
    -Single Target Silence
    -AoE Reflect
    -Single target Reflect
    -Reactive Healing/Damage Debuff
    -Cure
    -Mem Wipe
    - Reactive Neg Casting speed debuff
    - Healing Reduction Curses
    -AoE Snare
    - Confuse
    -Stun
    -AoE Stun

    -With a pure dom, and all abilities refreshed, They can damn near reduce the healing taken by an enemy and the damage they do to nothing.

    Archon is quite fun, although Chloromancer is even MORE Fun.
