My role of choice is normally defense/tank. I do tend to roll a DPS character as well, however.

I voted DPS since that's what I usually like, but I honestly always end up having dps'ers, healers and support-characters. The one thing I never really do is tank because it's just not my thing.

Although I haven't taken the role in MMOs in sometime, I enjoy healing because you're directly and consistently saving lives. There's something fulfilling and enjoyable about making sure everyone makes it through a fight in one piece, and rescuing people from the brink of death. It feels like you've saved the day with selflessness.

A scenario I was part of recently was noticing another player in a fight with a strong boss monster. This player was doing the best they can but was losing health quickly and was clearly going to die to the next few attacks. So I leapt into the fray and healed this player up to full and afterwards doing what damage and taunts I could to the boss, and we eventually brought it down.

Once the battle was done the player turns to me and says, "I love you."
I looked right back at this person whom I saved and said, "I know."

And then I walked off into the sunset.

So yep, I like being a healer.

It's the role I've always played in any game that required teamwork and it's the role I most enjoy. Also, annoying people with CC and Debuffs is SO much more fun than simply killing them.

I usually just play as a tank because most guilds need good tanks! Personally it can be a little boring, but that's why you need to find the right type of group to keep it fun.

In my mmo experience I have to agree with @"Horizon Seeker" healing does give you the most satisfaction from doing a good job. Everybody loves good healers, though they are usually the first to be blamed. It's a love/hate relationship.

I love tanking, healing, and DPS. If I had to pick though, most likely dps.

It's strange how DPS usually wins these things. . you'd think more people would like being a needed role. Rather interesting if not disappointing. Still - more groups for me being the tank. :D

Im actually thinking ill do a fair bit of supporting, just for the team feel, I think it will be a lot more entertaining in TESO compared to other games, where healer is the support.

I love doing support/healing, but I also enjoy tanking. Straight DPS just bores me.

Damage all the way, baby! I did learn the value of ALL team members working together in unison as a Centaur Healer, Gwenne Genver, in Shadowbane; so there is no wrong answer on this poll. Everyone counts!

I'm sort of the kamikaze slash-what-you-can type so... I guess DPS?

To be honest I like all 4. I enjoy tanking because being in the fray is really exciting when playing. I like DPS because you just feel amazing pulling off all these combos dealing massive damage. I enjoy support knowing that my buffs allowed you to kill the enemy and similar with healing. I've got to say though DPS is my favourite, I'm going a staff wielding sorcerer and the idea is I'm pulling off these massive combos dealing huge damage both in PvE and PvP.
