What is your favorite class and why?

Just curious

Despite what I see as mage "shortcomings" in Angband, they are probably still my favorite class. I especially like AE spells that allow one to take out a room full of nasties in just a few turns.

Mages, of course!
I don't like to depend on gear too much.
They can detect and stuff by themselves.

Warriors, Paladins, Rangers cause I like to get up close and personal and get my hands dirty. I know purists will flay me for meleeing with Rangers but I cant seem to keep away

When I played my ranger I was using bow as something 'extra' just to kill monsters that are running away or weaken them before I get into close combat. So he was a kinda Warrior with some extra spells

For best proffesion: Priest ATM, but it can change, playing Angband just for few days now

Ranger and Paladin.
The first was my favorite class for countless years of playing, with the latter I have had my only two winners.

What advantages do Paladins have over other classes? I know that they are the second best fighters, but do prayers make up for lousy ranged skills? At what level do they throw off their "second-rate warrior" reputation?

If you melee with rangers much, it's the monsters that will flay you, not any of us.

Paladins are great. The biggest lacks a warrior has is detection spells which the paladin gets. The bless/chant/prayer spells make the paladin just as good a fighter as the warrior, plus they also get other spells including orb of draining.
My favorite classes are Paladin and Ranger. I like being able to cast spells but I really don't like having to rely on spells completely. Least favorite is the mage just because it's so hard to survive with their pitiful strength and hit points.
I also really like the thief class I added in DaJAngband. They're very well rounded. They're not very good at fighting but better than priest or mage, they're not that great at spells but they do get some useful ones. Plus, they get instrinsic extra speed (+2 to +4) and high stealth.

I prefer warriors mainly because there isn't much to keep up with... that way I can focus solely on all the wig that needs getting.
