Having started to play a Necromancer
in Guild Wars 2
lately, I've been thinking about how odd it is that some MMO classes are kind of, well, evil. Or at least really, really gross, unless you think that playing with corpses is something a normal, well-adjusted citizen does. Summoning zombies, consorting with demons
, even stealing from others
-- sometimes our classes do unsavory activities. One could even call them... evil.
Perhaps this depends on the morality of the beholder, but I know that I've spoken to players from time to time who just don't pick classes that can be construed as evil even if they're using their corpse-exploding habits for the greater good. Usually it just doesn't fit in with their perception of what a hero is, and that is that.
What about you? Do you avoid "evil" classes, are you attracted to them, or do you not think about it one way or the other?
