Returning Player Questionseasiest class to solo with
Posted 11 December 2013 - 05:26 PM
I played here about 6 months ago and had a blast with Warrior and some troubles with Mesmer and Engineer. I have all 3 right around level 30-ish. Things have changed, as class balancing is an every changing art of angering some and making others happy.
I'm looking to jump back in and continue where i left off, but the question i had when i started remains - whats the easiest class to solo with?
The reply "what is fun" doesn't apply here. I think Necromancer is "fun", but when i'm getting pummeled into the ground by every other mob, that doesn't really appeal to me as "fun" anymore. lol
I'm an avid WoW player and will remain so, but there is no reason i can't play both and enjoy both, but i'm used to how the WoW combat works for solo player. Granted, its a faceroll, but i'm the casual player who likes faceroll for soloing and complexity for group content and PvP.
So in the most honored words of John Malkovich, "Impress me" (and thank you for any and all feeback - its sincerely appreciated).

Either go for condition damage with staff + scepter/dagger and Blood is Power, Epidemic or a power build with Wells and Dagger/Warhorn or Focus. Signet of the Locust makes kiting easy and minions can help to draw aggro from you.
As long as you always keep moving and keep your gear up to level, you shouldn't have much of a problem apart from some poorly balanced areas (balance can be a bit wonky in the open world during leveling). You should be able to take down multiple enemies of your level usually.

If you still find yourself having issues go ranger and put some points in beastmastery while leveling to buff up your pet a bit. Many people will run around with bears, but with some points in BM your cats are much less squishy and do way more damage than the bear. So I always preferred my cats when I was leveling my ranger. If you really want to stay ranged you can go Longbow/Shortbow. But I recommend getting used to melee and using at least one melee set. Greatsword or sword/warhorn. I prefer the latter because the sword has those evades and the ability to jump in and out of melee and warhorn is nice for extra speed. Greatsword has good defensive abilities though, like a daze/stun and a block.
