Demon Hunters are a class I really want to enjoy in World of Warcraft, but I’ve never really succeeded at that goal. This is despite having one at the level cap, too. It’s not that they’re terrible or badly designed or unfun, either; their gameplay isn’t a problem. They just don’t speak as much to me, personally, and so I’ve never been much more than mediocre at playing one. No matter how much I might want it to be otherwise, the dash-back-and-forth playstyle for Havoc doesn’t feel fun to me.
Do I want it to change? Well, from a selfish standpoint, I definitely do for my own enjoyment. But in terms of actual game design? The design works very well and is fun for a lot of people to play, and asking all of that to change just for my personal sake feels selfish in the extreme.
I think we’ve all got classes, jobs, or character builds along those lines, options that we really want to enjoy but wind up not having much fun with. And I think it’s good to acknowledge that. So what about you, dear readers? Are there character options in an MMO you want to enjoy but have never liked? And if so, have you tried to overcome that dislike or just accepted that it’s not for you?
