With the new refinements to each class, such as the tech-blade for the soldier class, and new skills, which class are you taking on as Shepard when the game releases? 
Personally, I'm going Vanguard as my first playthrough, and then maybe Infiltrator.

We only know the one new ability for a single class so it's far too early for most to judge. Me, I'll be going with Vanguard since it's the class my very first Shepard has been since the beginning, and I wanna keep him consistent 8)

yeah, ill be going vanguard probably as well. i was a vanguard in ME1 and ME2 (tried other classes, none seemed as cool). i mean biotic stuff and being good with guns? hell yeah.

Soldier. I like bringing the big guns. Though now when all classes can pick weapons of choice, while using fewer slots, I wonder if the soldier will get anything in particular to make it more interesting. Being able to carry all weapon types at once feels like a rather weak benefit, since you often choose a couple of favorite weapons and stick to them anyway.

That new melee focused one sounds fun.

Same as ever.

Vanguard, for consistency with my lead Shepard. I might try an adept on one of my other characters. I wasn't a huge fan of how the Infiltrator played in ME2. I really wanted to like it, but couldn't. I might consider it if there are some new modifications, but I think the changes to classes this time around will probably be pretty small. Maybe they'll surprise me, who knows.

Adept like I did for ME1 and ME2. Although I did play as the Soldier on my first play through of ME1 it was really boring running into every room and hosing it down with bullets.

Adept for femshep and vangaurd for my dude

Soldier, then infiltrator/vanguard next. I like the better weapons the soldier has.

I'll definitely be sticking with the Vanguard bandwagon. Granted, it's the class I've stuck with since ME1 continued through ME2. 
I look forward to being able to biotically punch people into space.

#14 Posted by A_Cute_Squirtle (783 posts) -

Vanguard or Adept. I need my biotics. 

#15 Posted by Nux (2559 posts) -

Vanguard, as I was in ME1 and 2.

#16 Posted by fillmoejoe (1546 posts) -

I always pick Vanguard, then I played Soldier on my Insanity run for ME2.

#17 Posted by ArclightBorealis (1722 posts) -

I've been an Infiltrator for 1 and 2, not gonna change it for 3.

#18 Posted by probablytuna (4238 posts) -

Same as the one I chose in Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2. Soldier to the end.

#19 Posted by Bubbly (262 posts) -

My first playthrough is always as a Sentinel.

#20 Posted by Yanngc33 (4551 posts) -

Vanguard first playthrough, soldier second and will probably play the second playthrough by saying all the lines through my Kinect

#21 Posted by nintendoeats (6144 posts) -

Never be not sniping.

#22 Posted by Demyx (3240 posts) -

I like playing either Infiltrator or Sentinel.

#23 Posted by TheHT (12573 posts) -

Vanguard 4 lyfe.

#24 Posted by bioblood22 (442 posts) -

Soldier, but sometimes I'll play as an Adept, but mostly soldier.

#26 Posted by RTSlord (1228 posts) -

Same here.

#29 Posted by phrosnite (3511 posts) -

Infiltrator all the way.

#30 Posted by RE_Player1 (7948 posts) -

Infiltrator and soldier, not sure which I'll play first though and which of my Shepards I'll import first.

#31 Posted by rmanthorp (4296 posts) -


#32 Posted by McBEEF (375 posts) -

Only ever played as vanguard so ill keep it up i guess.

#33 Posted by DoctorTran (1584 posts) -

I shall enter the void just as I did before... as a soldier.

#34 Posted by SethPhotopoulos (5775 posts) -

The ones I import from the previous games?

#35 Posted by Cornman89 (1600 posts) -

Vanguard 4 life dawg

#36 Posted by Beforet (3006 posts) -

Probably soldier first time through, but I'll wait to see what other info we get on the other classes. Vanguard was really fun so I might go with that.

#37 Posted by Stange88 (82 posts) -

Im going to use Soldier, Inflitraitor and Vanguard. Maybe i will use all of them who knows, but Mass Effect is always awesome and cool sci-fi story.

#38 Posted by JadeGL (1073 posts) -

Sticking with Vanguard. I have been one since the very beginning.
I just love charging into dudes and shotgunning them in the face.

#39 Posted by AlwaysBeClothing (1597 posts) -

If they're revamping the classes again, I might choose an entirely different class. Though the easiest one for me typically is Soldier. I usually do a playthrough with about 4 classes anyway so it doesn't make a huge difference to me.

#40 Posted by Snowboarder75 (51 posts) -

Infiltrator, cannot wait to use the Widow again. And the widow was in one of those E3 videos being used by some blue armored alliance guy.

#41 Posted by MetalBaofu (1479 posts) -

My first play through will be as an infiltrator, which is the class of the character I will be importing.   Eventually, I will play with most, if not all of them.  I have about 6 characters ready to be imported...all of them will be imported at some point.

this... the other classes sound cool, I remember my first play through on mass effect wondering when I would unlock the cool biotic stuff, then I realized that was never going to happen due to my choice at the beginning of the game. Then ME2 came and after reading all of the descriptions. Soldier was still the most sound and tactical choice.

#43 Posted by innacces14 (742 posts) -

Infiltrator, Sentinel, Vanguard, Adept, Soldier, and Engineer in that order.

#44 Posted by Lazyaza (2311 posts) -

Adept for my "real" shepard, soldier for my asshole shepard yet again. 

#45 Posted by GaiaAthena (8 posts) -

Soldier, my shepard has been Soldier for two games now so it'd be good to keep it the same. For another playthrough I'd try a different class but not enough details have been given that I'd know which one in ME3.

#46 Posted by MideonNViscera (2269 posts) -

My main is a Soldier, then an adept, then an infiltrator I believe.

#47 Posted by 2HeadedNinja (2007 posts) -

Infiltrator for my female Shepard (which is the REAL Shepard as far as I am concerned), for my male one I'll look and see how the classes develop.
