    Dual wield ftw :D

    Warrior because I love my different melee weapons and really getting up close, plus I don't need to worry too much about not having range since dexterity scales bows if I remember correctly. If I'm feeling really ballsy I might go with Dual Swordsman though.

    I think I'm going to go for the Warrior or Knight... a nice easy to grasp meat-and-potatoes style build for when I'm going through the game for the first time. However, once I've got the game I might find my decision will be heavily influenced by starting gear and aesthetics.

    Gonna dual it up of course

    Warrior or Temple Knight, I like raw strength, but I may need more than that. Cleric and Dual Swordsman are still up for consideration though.

    My ps3 broke today... It was just over a year old... Given how soon Dark Souls 2 comes out, it could not have chosen a worse possible time.

    Yay! it's here once more! My final decision will depend on me seeing the detailed equipment and stats of each class, but based on what was described in this video, I'm probably gonna go for the Dual Swordsman, mainly because he feels like the most different class from what there's been in previous dark souls, and because I have always favored offense versus defense anyway, and I always rely more on rolls and dodging over blocking and circle strafing.
