I like left and right skill, (a strong attack and a disable), maybe one "free" passive, and more with a small energy maintenance cost and/or need to renew. Say three more active skills, including the heavy powered ones for bosses/ high end groups. (I love Guild Wars 1 which tends to use almost a  full hand of active skills, including energy management ones.)
I liked trying for a special pet build, with damage on both sides (champion wolves) , but haven't really fancied using them (yet) on my other builds.  I like each one to be completely different. Same with weapons, I'm thinking I shouldn't have made a choice there on your survey, though I did.

I'm curious to know what do you mean about a "free" passive?

I have a tendency to play with 2 bows. Occasionally a staff. One bow for damage to second for recovery if needed.
Have played this way for years because of my slowness. Lots of passives for the same reason.
Interesting survey

might as well contribute :)
but i want to explain some of my answers so I'll just answer here

1) i mostly play casters.. AoE spellcasters to be exact.. but i want my casters to have enough survivability so i don't have to do too much retreating.. i hate dying

but i also like to explore weird builds.. however that may mean

2) 4

3) long range AoE with 2 or more CCs

4) i use pets but i mostly want them only as distractions or to provide buffs.. i don't like just standing around waiting to open bone piles

5) uhhh whatever helps my build i guess.. 1, 2, 3, gazillion

6) that's the beauty of spellcasters :) .. damage can come from anywhere.. but i like it one-handed so it's not one less item slot

It's very interesting to see the tastes of everyone. The sample is still small but I notice some trends.

A majority of the people who took the survey seem to appreciate pets and passives. Curious :p

I wanted multiple choice on the weapons too.  I put staves, but I like bows and clubs just as much.  :)

And yes, each mastery should support 2 types of weapons, range and melee. We should make a list of all possible weapons and maybe to update with more weapons?

I thought one weapon type was fair... oh well.

Also, nobody has throwing weapons as their favorites. Now that surprises me...

me thinks different.. i dislike weapon specialization because it just locks you to that type of weapon.. which is why defense is my least favorite because it locks you to a shield.. how about you add another tab in the skills page where every class can access it? just like grim dawns devotion tab but this one contains weapon specializations and perhaps other passives maybe like higher energy regen? every class has access to that 3rd tab

edit: like sword mastery, axe mastery, etc.

edit 2: at least that could mean on legendary we don't have to spend our skill points on meh skills

Uh? You want me to add a sort-of Devotion system to TQ?

Lol, I'm a rookie modder! It would be fun, but I'm not the man that can do it. ;D

WNG - No, I was thinking something like Ways (Way of this, of that...), so each mastery can have 1 for ranged and 1 for melee, so optionally player can use it. Only problem with this is switching weapons disable ways, and that's bad.
Page with weapon specialization seems very nice, if someone know how to make it.
About page listing all weapons, that would be hard.

That's what I was speaking of in my earlier post; botebote suggested it but this is something way beyond my capabilities.

As for trees that specializes into a specific weapon, I guess it could work if it fits the theme of the mastery.

They're okay and for something like the Bladeflinger Magician they're fun when coupled with the Throwing Knife skill, but I wouldn't choose them over a bow because I don't like their shorter throwing distance.
