Was curious as to what were the favored Classes of Players, and as to the avg lvls of all classes chosen? For instance, I am interested in how many take Fighters, as well as those that select more than 6 lvls; info like that. Thanks!

I can't say for other players, but I know for my cadre, I have a wide range of classes across 14 characters.  The most dominant class representation is wizard (three, two 20+ levels, one 10+30PM levels). All but one PC is level 40. Except for the wizards, my two clerics, and rogues (one of which is also one of the wizards), each PC has their own class dominant build (be it 20+ base class levels, or 10+ prestige class levels).

And yes, one of those is 6 or more levels of fighter Smile My beastial half orc is a fighter26/warblade4/acrobat10 build.  He's my "combat cadillac" build, using the massive fighter bonus feat to get almost every single combat oriented feat available, using Warblade for some special ability (divine damage and AC), and acrobat for access to epic dodge and for skill points (hide/ms, and tumble).

Our chat earlier is what made me think of Classes and levels. Most of my Fighters only take 6 lvls or so, but there are a couple exceptions. But my Rangers have at least 21 lvls to acquire Bane of Enemies and five Favored Enemies. I am curious as to what classes actually have the most levels invested, and which classes are ignored or rarely touched.

Although I haven't seen a lot of other players' builds while on as DM, I will say from what I have seen, wizard is the dominant class representation by far.

Now that surprises me, as Wizard took me a long time to break in for NWN. But perhaps Aenea draws a more seasoned crowd now; more vets knowing the general ropes.

For me, Rogue is the favored class, but it is always combined with something else, so the total levels may not be the highest.

Looking some of my more memorable characters...generally built around some sort of theme rather than stats.

a 40th level fae fighter (her character theme is "tiny woman with big bastard sword")
a monk 30/ironheart 10 (his character theme is "durable").
a wizard 30/soulfire warrior 10 (no specific theme)
a 40th level elven monk ("fast ninja" theme)
a fighter 26/wizard 1/arcane archer 13 (theme of "don't let enemies get close")
a rogue 8/fighter 7 (dwarven "rogue" that is definitely not rogue-like)
a fighter 21/sorcerer 1/red dragon disciple 10 (theme of "completely insane drow")
a barbarian 30/ironheart 10 (theme of extreme "body like stone, mind like meatloaf"...and he doesn't wear heavy armor!)

So, it looks like I lean toward combat classes.  Probably more because it takes less time to learn to attack things directly than it does to learn spells and use strategy to prepare and use them.  I have a hard enough time remembering to keep healing potions in stock, let alone keep spells memorized.  Smile Seriously...almost any custom reward item I earn usually has regeneration as a property to keep my warriors alive.

It's the opposite of PnP D&D, where I really like wizards, where imagination can make for the most powerful characters, limited by simple rules rather than computer programming.

I've got other spellcaster characters, but I haven't played them enough for them to be that memorable.

Since I took up NWN1 in 2007, which was my first introduction to DnD, I've only had five characters.

A Ranger / Wizard Elf was my first character, named Ramana Elrawien.  A versatile build decided for NWN1 OC, upon the recommendation of my husband, who did his time in DnD, up to DM, when he was a teenager.  I don't recall the split, it might have been 20/20.  Ranger for the fighter qualities, Wizard as Elven favored class for magic.  I did not learn how to play a mage from this one, rather I mostly depended on the rangery part's fighting ability, with magic as a backup (much like a rogue would use it).

Second was a pure Druid, Jalla (dem Vald) Desat, half-elf, L20 in the PW Thain that has a soft cap at L20.  Suited my naturey, natural-law side for my first pure magical character.  With her I discovered Role-Play, and thereafter that would be paramount in creating characters, but maximized for effectiveness within those ideas.

Third was Ramana (no last name), Ranger 10 / Rogue 9 / SD 1, Elf, on that same server with a soft cap at L20.  This Ranger/Rogue/SD quickly became my favorite build.  The Rogue and Ranger meshes really well, it's basically a swiss-army-knife build, and she is actually a total Shadow Dancer, even though the SD class itself never gave what I wanted, so I had to cobble together the appropriate qualities from the other classes and items and etc.  I love the Rogue clever and technical ways of doing things, and its sneak attack that works really well with the fighting abilites and styles of the naturey Ranger to make the build nicely un-squishy.  Bascially a Rogue in the city or in the wilderness.  (BTW, Rogue is my favorite class, and Rogueish modules my favorite style of games.)

Fourth is Ramana Domefarar here in Aenea, Ranger 23 / Rogue 16 / SD 1, Elf, my favorite build upped to L40.  Currently at L40, haven't Reincarnated yet, as in my limited time it's just more fun to play high levels with her.  I could wax on for hours about this build's ability to do pretty nearly everything with a little thought, including magic backup.

Fifth is Ranara Duauth, pure Wizard, Elf Shadow Child, and also sitting at L40 unreincarnated.  My first pure Wizard, which has taken some time to get comfortable with how to play.  If Dave and his Crideas hadn't been around for the morale support in learning how to use this class, especially for Aenea, I might not have ventured into it.  (And I nearly started this character with my favorite Rogue, before I decided to see what a pure Wizard could do, here in Aenea.)

Never used Fighter, or any other classes besides those mentioned.  I've always favored cleverness over brute force, so Ranger is as fightery as I get, and it works well for me, especially RP-wise.
