    After dissing the barbarian, I realized that one of my favorite characters, ever -- and one that still gets referenced fondly by others from the group -- was a 2e berserker, from the Viking handbook. In fairness, he did have a 4 int and 5 wisdom, which was played up a lot and fueled by 36 hours of sleep deprivation at creation and a 12 hour marathon session that made stepping back into the stupid easy enough. It also involved getting the "bear form" and making time with the (prudish) ranger's animal companion.

    None of that necessarily justifies a barbarian class, though.

Two weapon fighting is a stretch but a ranger would want something in the off hand. But TWF is a stretch. Throwing axe maybe more sense.
    I think I can live with all of the above. Also, there's a difference between using guerrilla tactics/anything that works and being the poster boy for a main gauche.

    D&D is a game that makes use of fantasy archetypes, and the ones I don't like are the ones that aren't a clear fantasy archetype. Prion heads the list (sci fi not fantasy) , and I'm still not happy with Warlord and Warlock because of thier names mostly (I'd prefer Noble and Witch respectively). Monk I can live with, but I prefer to represent them more as flagellant monastics with massive constitutions rather than eastern mystics.

    Assassin by a nose over the Psion. Both are banned from any game I DM.

    From the player side, you won't find me as a fighter, rogue, barbarian or monk.

    I voted fighter. Low-level concept? Check. Poor execution? Check. Fanboys insistent that because they want to play an underpowered class, everyone else must suck? Check.

    I've never really understood how a class devoted to mental powers and mind over matter (both internally and externally) wasn't suitable for fantasy. Clearly a lot of people feel that it isn't, but I kind of have a hard time wrapping my mind around it.

    My least favorite is the psionicist/psion, but honestly I don't think I really hate anything on this list. Classes seldom get hate from me. My hate is largely reserved for races--warforged and kender come to mind.

    I voted warlord, but psion would be a very close second.

    Uh, what about Archbishop Turpin from the Song of Roland? And Moses?

    I chose Psion. I've always felt that class belonged in sci-fi, not D&D.

    Voted for Psion as least liked, I finally bit the bullet this campaign and dropped psionics entirely; I gave up after trying several times to redesign it from the ground up.

    Barbarian should be a race, not a class. (give or take, that's the 437th time I've typed that in an EnWorld thread) That'd get my second-place vote.

    Over on the WotC poll, I confess to extreme disappointment: why aren't my beloved Illusionists getting any votes?!

    And back here I'm quite shocked to see posts decrying the stalwart Fighter. Every army needs its foot soldiers.
