I haven't read much about V5, but Tremere as mercenaries sounds kind of fun. I never liked playing a Tremere because of the whole Pyramid thing and this new development would really interest me.
However, the Sabbat becoming nearly unimportant (from what I've heard so far) makes me dislike the new system a bit. I like playing Sabbat, especially Tzimisce.

About which clans to play:
My first finished playthrough of VTMB was with a Tremere and that was a lot of fun. It did save me the bad ending, because despite Rosas warning, I might have opened the sarcophagus, but since I wanted to be on STrauss' good side, I sided with him.

Gangrel was fun too. I constantly used Animalism and had a lot of fun with it.

Despite being a bit over the top, Malkavian is my favorite, although I always change the skin, since the original skin for female is just ridiculous. I either use the Tremere skin (my favorite of the original skins) or a mod called 'Subtle Malkavian' - which is a rework of a Torrie mod. But I like the insighte, the Malkavian has and of course the hilarious dialogue with Gary, when my Malk thought, he is one of the voices in her head - that was kind of cute.

I tried Toreador and got very far into the geame with her, but Torries are just not my cup of tea. Same with Brujah, with them, I don't like the disciplines much (apart from Celerity), but I guess, they are a great choice for a melee playthrough (as are Nossies).

Nossi is fun too. They are my third favorite clan (after Malkavian and Tzimisce) in P&P, so I had to play a Nossi. But like the Malkavian, I changed my Nossi because I hated his Bondage outfit - I mean... why? So I made him look like Barrabus, suited me better clothingwise.

I have yet to play a Ventrue, I started one and liked the disciplines, but like with the Torrie, I didn't made it to the end, don't know why.

If you want to be invincible, play Ventrue. Just activate Fortitude 3 + Presence 3... You don't even have to go to 5 and you spend only 30 exp for that. What can kill you ? (aside from the werewolf haha )

The Nos are kinda great too... Especially when you can spam Bloodsuckers' Communion while in obfuscate mode... you just kill any human from the distance FOR FREE (the blood comes back) with just one right click, plus you don't get detected thanks to obfuscate x)

But my best experience was with the Malks. You can still be killed if you play badly since they don't have any OP defensive disciplines (like Fortitude and Presence that makes you almost invincible). So the fights are more fun with the Malk since you still have to be somewhat careful.

Personally, I tend to replay the game as soon as a new good skin appears :) Tho for some reason, there are a LOT of new skins appearing at the moment :D

Ah, but Malks rarely get close enough to get hurt in my games (malks = guns  :) ).  Well, when they don't hold them backwards with their eyeball peering into the barrel.

If there was a way for the nosferaltu to learn Protean 5, I would totally play it x)
Question : What is more scary ? A Nosferaltu or a Nosferaltu activating Protean ? Clue : it's a trick question x)

Hm, if a Nossie uses the warform you probably get something looking like a Tzimisce creature. ;)

The way the claw attacks are bugged in bloodliens, the Nossie without protean is probably more scary (or at least more dangerous).
