Hearth Orlan Cipher (Mystic) from The White That Wends. He's doing fantastic damage and control with his powers, and has been rather safe using a pike. Have had no issues gaining focus with the pike either, was worried I might have been forced into dual-wield.

Dang, everybody's Ciphers.

 

(Because it is the best-designed class.)

Cipher probably makes the most sense as the PC class given what they are meant to represent during the story. 

That said, I picked a human Barbarian who dual wields swords. Barbarians are a pretty good off-tank, pretty good damage dealer, and flailing my swords around like some kind of angry rage-beast really appeals to my personality.

1. Nurzhan of the Oasis - Island Aumaua Fighter (Deadfire Archipelago Merchant)

Played him as an archer (Adventurer weapons), which squandered his innate regeneration. Also, he had low Might because I didn't know that Might applied to ranged damage (all damage, in fact). He was pretty mediocre as a result.

I finished the game with him, skipping the vast majority of side quests and leaving most companions' side quests unresolved save for the wizard companion. Most of them ended up having bittersweet endings.

2. Nurzhan of the Oasis - Island Aumaua Fighter (Deadfire Archipelago Merchant)

Same build with more fighter friendly stats. Same weapons as #1, but he uses his war bow as an opener instead of his main weapon. He main weapons are his estoc and his dual flails. Much more effective than #1, able to lock down four enemies at a time.

Still playing this one.

3. Lelouch vi Britannia - Meadow Folk Cipher (Aedyran Aristocrat)

Based on the main character of Code Geass, an exiled noble with mind control powers. Terrible physical stats but awesome mental stats. Expert of LYAHF (Let's you and him fight!). Just arrived in the first town.

Wood elf cipher (scientist from the Living Lands).  I usually play a mage in CRPGs, but didn't want to play one who was constantly saving her spells in case they were needed in a tougher fight. I understand the concept, but find it totally unfun.

Why not be the one who casts the spells that makes the peoples fall down?

Wild Orlan Ranger, after days of indecision and partial playthroughs.

 

(Will play an Earth Godlike Druid, Death Godlike Cipher, Wood Elf Chanter, Pale Elf Wizard, and... Well, I'll find some way to fit a Boreal Dwarf in there somewhere.)

I never play human protagonists since I AM one (sometimes....) if it's a solo game, and almost always ranger-types.  Always elf or another "other" race.  If I have a custom party, it'll be a mix similar to elf ranger/human paladin/orlan rogue/elf wizard/aumaua fighter/dwarf or human barbarian.

My first was a wild Orlan cipher. Haven't played a psion-like class since Dark Sun, so really felt like it :)

My next would be a wild Orlan barbarian, once a new patch will arrive hopefully.

 

Can't see myself playing anything other than an Orlan. Tempted to make my barbarian a hearth one because the bonus is better, but I just like the wild ones :p

In my first play through I was a Moon godlike rogue from Deadfire Archipelago. I was a pirate who became so renowned a group of nations formed an armada to capture me. The ship went down, the surviving crewmen scattered, and I decided to go to Dyrwood (passing through Gilded Vale along the way) on my way to a new life . . . of even more crime. >:)

Holy necroposting, Batman!

I have a Hearth Orlan Chanter (Aedyran merchant) and a Pale Elf Barbarian (raider from Deadfire--hey, Naasitaq is in the archipelago, and they have contact with glamfellen, so....)

Why there's "non of these" option in class section? There aren't custom classes in this game, right? Doesn't it break poll?... 

No sense to me...

Because the polling applet requires an answer in each section....
