Hey, the last post I made I didn't give much info so hopefully this will help. I'm not really after stealth I prefer more upfront damage, so that's operative ruled out. In terms of what role I want well I want it to be active, engaging and fairly fast paced with a sort of flow to it.in terms of leading a group I'm not 100% sure if I'd like that I'd find it quite frustrating I'd rather just chip in when I've got some good info. Again, any help would be much appreciated and sorry for making a second thread.

I would like a more background role but still feel appreciated in the group I think again I'm not 100% sure, on some Myers Briggs test I mostly get infj (introvert etc) if that helps

Sniper. Pure DPS class so you'll never be one of the "vital" tank/heal roles, so you can be as "background" as is allowed by this game. It's not stealthy, which is your other criterion. And it's a fun AC generally.

Not necessarily not being vital just less of a leader leading a group through an instance I don't think I'm much into that in a class I also like being able to solo easily

Jedi Sentinel.

All dps, ridiculously fun, kills things quickly in the outside world. Plus, lightsaber throwing and jumping at things is awesome.

Both seem like great classes, i think my main problem is that I'm not to sure if I prefer melee or ranged

Well, I think you are looking for a melee class considering "active, engaging and fairly fast paced." Marauders defiantly fit here, so does jugg and power techs (excluding stealth). Which is it? That us a personal taste. Marauder and jugg play fairly close to each other, and are heavy melee. Power tech is more of a short range.

If you are considering ranged, then sniper.

The only way to know is to try each! I've discovered that I prefer ranged, but melee is fun sometimes too. It doesn't take real long to just try a little of everything and choose what you like best. That's what I did. I have 11 characters...

Isee, well marauder seems like fun but I'm not sure to start tanking or healing compared to dps

I don't like powertech I got it to 14 and it felt abit to slow and not really flow at all. Dps wise it's between sorc, marauder or sniper. Tanking I'd go jugg, healing I'd go sorc
