So I thought I'd check out the F2P thing, but I haven't played in so long I need to start a new class. With the current state-of-the-game, what's a decent class to try? My only requirements are that the class doesn't suck to level (OP is fine, UP is not fine) and can find groups at a high level.  Suggestions?

Yea I logged in fine on the first try, went to character select, came here to post, went back, had been disconnected, logged back in and I was now #750 in the queue. Forget that.

There sure are lots of queues and some problems with people losing connection with the servers and overall lag, that Carbine is trying to solve asap. They opened two new temporary realms today, one for PvE and one for PvP, in each region to alleviate the problem. These will eventually be merged with the main servers.

As for the class question, there have been some changes since the launch. The Espers are way more mobile nowadays, albeit their healing still focuses on targeted and single-target heals. Overall the classes should all be around the same power as far as I know, it just depends on your preference.

If you prefer mêlée, consider Warrior or Stalker. Both of them have been very strong in the recent drops. Many of our guild's top raid DPS are Warriors, for example. For short-medium range, there's the Medic (the class I happen to main). They've also been quite strong for a long time both in DPS and as their role as the "designated" tank healer. For medium-long range, one can consider the Engineer, who has the lovely pet bots (their AI is still not the best). They've been doing OK in the past with damage and in PvP, an engie tank can be a difficult one to kill. Lastly, the Esper and Spellslinger are the long-range options, both glass cannons and the Spellslingers sharing the top DPS positions in our raids with the Warriors. So, out of these the healer/DPS classes were Esper, Medic and 'Slinger; and the tank/DPS classes were Engineer/Stalker/Warrior.

One source of confusion for returning players can be the new stat system. Instead of the old Brutality, Finesse etc. we now have only four main stats: Assault Power, Support Power, Health and Armour. The main focus in the items and runes lies in the secondary stats. Each class has their preferred choice of secondary stat to go for. With Medics, it's Multi-Hit, with Stalkers, it's Critical Hit etc. More info about good builds and stat choices for the classes can be found here: Enigma Class Guides.

That's a quick reply. As I mentioned in the other post about the game going F2P, I play the game pretty much every day. Recently it's been on and off due to the server problems but I still try to do as much as I can in-game to get back some money after spending a fortune reruning my gear. Most of you should still have me as an account friend, so just give me a poke if you happen to log in and see me online.

Yea, Corwen . Changed the display name since I kept getting questions about who I am in-game since I haven't played with Corwen since last September.
