    I believe the common answer is "Full spellcasters", the tops being Cleric, Druid and Wizard.

    The answer to this is always "whichever one i'm playing".

    Rangers. I like the whole fighting outdoorsman thing, though it has nothing to do with their mechanical effectiveness.

    Best power wise are clerics, druids, and wizards.

    Any other definition of best is entirely subjective. Everyone can like whatever class the want the most and it is the best for them.

    Your making a best class poll and you don't even include CoDzilla?

    Seriously though, as far as sheer power level goes, druid, cleric, and wizard take the cake as far as core classes are concerned, of those three wizards are generally considered the most powerful though they reach full usefulness at a much later level.

    Ehhh, I had to go "other" because me favorte class (Soulknife) was not listed. Perhaps the poll could be better served as an "what are your favorite character archetypes?" version.

    The whole "most powerful" thing does not sit with me. I have power roll played once; and it was a little boring to be honest. But it was funny that one time I did over 1200 damage (various creatures) in a round with my scout/dervish.

    I voted bard. Mechanically they are not the most powerful, but they win a "fun" award.

    I voted other since the Scout wasn't there.
    I think it's the best wilderness class there is, mixing my two favoured classes, the rogue and the ranger.

    I voted wizards, because they are the best and I enjoy them, but I usually play a fighter. A TWF fighter. Powergaming does not exist inside me.

    I like clerics, just because it's so much fun to try and embody a certain philosophy. Different deities give different clerics so many different flavors. Trying to convert the townsfolk to the worship of Olidammara is priceless.

    wizards I play alot because of their customisation is realy high compared to te other class's but after ready the psionics handbook I'm more inclined to go with Psyic warrior heart and mind working in harmany.
    MERGE, HESHIN, COMBINE, TRANSFORM, BIOBOOST, CHANGE... Words that mean so much.

    I voted Rogue, but for for storytelling ability than any tactical advantage (I'm kinda a newb so I don't feel like I'd have anything useful to say on that topic). You can do pretty much whatever you want with a rogue, due to its high skill points and wide variety of class skills. Sneaky folk are an obvious choice, but it's also easy to build talky folk and fighty folk (though more of a Miko crazy flipping fighty than a Thog hotel-room-door-beatdown fighty). Get your UMD and Charisma high enough and you can even be a magicy folk. More importantly, since you have so much flexibility in alloting your points, you can do a little bit of each. You can mix and match your skills to create truly unique folk. If you want to play a more stereotypical character, the other choices are good. But if you want your guy to be something a little more outside the box, the customizability of the rogue is a huge advantage. Whenever I get a new character idea in my head, they almost always start out with a level or two of rogue (then I remember I still have to be useful to the party and do revisions).

    most powerful--wizard
    favourite--either rogue(has to be small/talkative/greedy/waytoocurious)
    sure you won't be the most useful at melee combat, wizards can do all your work for you once your party is around lvl 10(give or take), but the sheer roleplaying opportunities are countless, and any DM worth his salt will still enable you to remain useful.

    or if you are playing an evil campaign... a psion(telepath) that is creul and forces people to fight themselves/each other and is all about genaside.. seriously how can you contend with that

    or a homebrewed class designed around a character idea (bye bye need for a PrC hello character concept that you can start at level one with!)

    I like to play Wizards and Rangers, mostly, although I've been wanting to play an Artificer at some point. Powerwise the Druid and the Artificer (from Eberron) are the "best".

    None. They all have their situational usefulness. Although if you want to go buy "number of situations they're useful in", Cleric or Wizard. But I'd say none.

    Rouge is easily the most powerful item, since it combines the effect of Hideous Laughter and Feeblemind in one (many Wizards have been known to laugh themselves silly when someone uses it). Beware the power of the mighty RED COSMETIC! It's so powerful that people even confuse it with a character class. It really should be considered an artifact, IMO.

    Cleric. A primary spellcaster with good hit points and armour. You instantly know all the core spells of the levels you can cast, you have spontaneous spell conversion and Diplomacy as a class skill for persuasion. Turning undead is also thrown in. A man for all seasons. Oh alright, except for stealth and intrigue but a character that was good in every situation would spoil the game.

    Overall, I'd say Cleric. With the choices given, I voted for Wizard. Just a phenomenal amount of power at higher levels.

    The three strongest PHB classes are, from my limited mostly to theory, experience:
    1. Wizard
    2. Cleric
    3. Druid

    While the three weakest PHB classes would be:
    1. Ranger
    2. Monk
    3. Bard

    You titled the topic 'best', then put 'favorite'. >_> My favorite class is Fighter, then Wizard, then Bard.

    Uhhh.... CLERIC? Not just cuz CoDzilla pwns your poll, but because they are really fun to play, especially since you can customize them in so many different ways.
