    Just that. I have to say, that it's not needed to choose the first class you chose when you played the game for the first time. Just select the class you chose most of the times you create a new character.

    The poll it's multiple choice, but please just select 2 options maximum.

    I chose Knight and Warrior. If my character's a caster, they tend to go with Miracles and some decent close combat ability, so Knight is a brilliant choice for that. Otherwise, I really like quality builds -- a build too dedicated to either strength or dexterity, without balance, just doesn't click for me as well. So I use the Warrior class for maximum efficiency when it comes to building a versatile fighter.

    Yep, see that's the info I'm trying to get with this poll. At end of it, we should be able to estimate how much builds of X type are. Like if you chose Bandit, it's very probable that you make STR builds. Or at least a hybrid of STR and another.

    I wnet Knight and Pyro for my 1st two classes. Those were my choices. I went for a str faith for my knight (though that was my first time and I had no clue what I was doing).

    Pyro is for a character that I may restart. Though if I want somewhat/flexiable stats I would suggest pyromancer.

    I'm quite surprised the Knight is the most common so far. I would have thought it would be the sorcerer or something :O

    Who needs magic when you can throw lighting bolts, use a hammer, and have the wrath of a god?

    Warrior is my most -picked- class, but my most efficient builds tend to be sorcerers.

    So far, the most chosen class is Pyromancer, I believe it's because of it's flexibility.

    Personally, I'm not a big fan of the Pyromancer. I honestly find it a bit of a chore to start a Dark Souls run with one, for some reason. Perhaps it's the flexibility that gets me -- there's just a lack of commitment that makes the class a jack of no trades. If I wanted versatility, I'd choose Knight, Wanderer or Warrior every time, depending on my plans. But the Pyromancer, to me, just has this kind of boring allocation of stats.

    Mind you, it's clear that many people feel differently about the Pyromancer. I guess I have a bone to pick with the damned thing; I did a SL1 run a little while back and had to deal with those starting stats from the Asylum to Gwyn, and a lot of people suggest the Pyromancer for beginners rather than the superior answer -- that being, "whichever you like the idea of".

    Warrior for me. I'm mostly a pure melee player.

    Sorceror. The Attunement and soul arrow are just too useful.

    I used to always start as a Pyromancer because it starts at level 1 with 2 spell slots already. But since I usually hang out around sl60 the rest of his starting stats are very poorly distributed for most of my builds. These days I use sorceror for pure mage builds, and either wanderer or hunter for magic/faith backed melee fighters respectively, since both start at 14 dex for my beloved BSS. The wanderer actually makes a pretty nice spellsword build even at very low levels due to above average starting attunement/int.

    Personally, I've always found the Wanderer to be the most efficient class for making spellswords.
