Which profession/build has the most survivability when faced with 3 or more mobs before level 20-22?

Or is it advisable to completely avoid storyline quests until hitting level 20?

Don't know for sure, but I'm gong to say either Guardian for their armor and defensive abilities or Necro/Ranger, since they have pets to draw aggro.

Warriors and Guardians can solo champions at low levels. So I'd say them

Warriors then Guardians then Necro. Warriors probably the best because they have a high combination of ability to drop damage as well as survive because of their large HP pool as well as heavy armor. Guard is good because of heavy armor as well as lots of boons and heals, though sometimes can lack damage of other classes....but early on its not that big of a difference. Necro because they have a large HP pool, only downside is their light armor because they can do some nice damage on top of their conditions, whichever way you want to build it.

Warrior and Guardian, without a doubt. A Warrior in particular absolutely rips through mobs in early levels due to having around 100% crit chance without even trying (yes, its that ridiculous). A Ranger is also fairly easy, but its really no match to this - when the pet dies and multiple mobs start harassing, he's in trouble.

Like others said, Warrior or Guardian.

Warrior - healing Signet is almost OP at those levels + nearly 100% crit chance via the I Trait in the Arms tree coupled with a few signets. The faster stuff dies the less damage you take.

Guardian - later on this technique doesn't really matter much because you got all your traits etc., but at low levels you can be really cheesy on tough individual mobs (vets, champions) with Scepter + Focus which grant you a blind, an immobilize and a block or three along with your other skills like Aegis. Basically you can kite forever until the mob dies if its melee only.
