Don't be afraid to try classes out. If your not sure, try looking at some live streams of people playing or doing raids. There are plenty out there and may give you idea of what you want to play.

Really none of us can tell you what you want to play. Only you can do that.

Would a good idea be to watch videos of the class and see what looks more fun then just level that?

It could definitely help you get a general idea of the class and how it plays and what too expect. Might even help you decide what type of role you would want to be when you hit end game.

I'd go with a sniper/gunslinger or a marauder/sentinel.

A sorcerer/sage is definitely an option but they're sooo squishy.

My main is a sorcerer, but I play as a healer, not as a dps. The damage isn't as high, but I've enjoy the DPS options of the juggernaut/guardian, though they're meant to be more tanky.

I prefer more general combat classes that make me feel involved so I think I'm going to go with the sith juggernaut and start tanking again, thanks for the help guys

If you want DPS on a Hunter, you should have leveled an Arsenal Merc. You get Death from Above early (Level 10!), and it's really also in an upper class of DPS, although not as good as sniper. But rotations are very easy, and on a raid its a very easy role to play - just point and nuke. Not a lot of tactical knowledge or timing needed.

I've greatly enjoyed my arsenal merc. Gave up on my powertech early because as you said, too blah.

If you want top-flight DPS, there are only 2 choices: Sentinel/Marauder for melee or Gunslinger/Sniper for ranged. If you want Leeroy Jenkins, go Guardian/Juggernaut DPS.

I'm not really bothered about the dps, tanking seems more active and rewarding by the looks of it
