I don’t know that I really have a favorite class. I used to go for assassins or fighter/assassins in AD&D, but really I’ve probably played more fighters than anything else. Having been mostly DM for the last few years I kind of like all the classes for different reasons. The last character I really enjoyed playing was an illusionist. His spells were crap, but being the spell caster meant I got all the cool magic items and I got to do most of the thinking for the party. That illusionist probably used flaming oil, rat poison, and an auger more than spells.
