OP  9/04/12 1:01:42 PM#1

I am a new player - what is the best (most survivable) class if you prefer to solo pve and do not like to group up to pvp? (I'll participate, but more as a lone wolf)

 

I enjoy the social aspects of mmos, but not for party based PUG play.

 

Don't say "Just whatever you prefer" as I am not sure what I prefer at this point. I've tried them all. 

 

Also last night I saw a guy who was in full golem armor, then later he was a bear.

 

What was his class or how did he get that? He would not explain (he was being a tool when I asked politely)

I'd imagine he was a norn that completed some higher levle dungeon or something. Norn is the only race that gets shapeshift, so to be a bear that narrows it down. Golem armor i'd imagine you mean heavy set looking, so he's either a warrior or gaurdian, i'd put money on warrior.

Personally though i've been liking my Necro for solo play, plus he looks like a miniature demon with his helm and armor on, it's crazy cool looking.

I'm enjoying playing a two-handed guardian.   Enough DPS to be interesting, enough heals and survivability to be durable and useful.

I've heard a lot of people recommend Necros because of the free extra-life.  Ranger is supposedly very well balanced for solo.

All that said, I think "best class for solo" has never been more irrelevant in an MMO than it is in GW2.  As I saw someone post in another thread, you're essentially always "grouped" in GW2.  Solo no longer has any meaning unless you're doing story quests which are few and far between and not what you'll be spending the vast majority of your time doing (unlike other recent story-driven MMOs)

One thing I don't think your taking into account...you don't really group up in this game. In GW2 the group ups you...lol no but seriously the only time you really go out of your way to group up as you put it is in the dungeons...other than that, you usually auto group for DE's and hearts...or rather your ghost grouping as I like to call it.

I hear warrior and guardian are pretty solid classes. I have a ranger at the moment. I'm starting to regret the pet thing..simply because they are not as robust or hmm...diversified as I want them to be. So when I hit 80 on the ranger perhaps I'll roll mesmer or guardian. Well honestly I"m probably going to roll them all...I keep wanting to make alts but damnit if I get sad when I'm not playing my ranger.

As for "best class" your playstyle matters but Guardian, Necro and Ranger seems to have good survivability.

Golem armor? I am guessing a tonic: http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Golemite_Tonic

 

We dont need casuals in our games!!! Errm... Well we DO need casuals to fund and populate our games - But the games should be all about "hardcore" because: We dont need casuals in our games!!!

I can't help but notice warriors and rangers just destroying everything.

I'm sure there are other classes that solo well, but these two just happen to stand out for me.

Warrior

 

 

My Charr Warrior, using a Rifle + Two-Handed Sword decimates EVERYTHING. Also, don't just stand there and get beat on. Some mobs take their sweet time to attack & turn really slowly, and even more mobs don't always "ghost hit" like wolves do (ie: no matter where you stand when they attack they hit).

 

I was soloing all of Kessex Hill's events last night, bosses and all :)!

Any class can do it as well as any other.  They just do it differently.  Ive never seen anything a ranger can handle that I can't handle on a mesmer.

I have a mesmer build I have tested in the mist that will kill a single target as fast as most any other class including thieves and warriors.

I can't speak for other classes but I seem to do pretty good with a Ranger. You can send your pet in and do damage from a distance (especially with a longbow) and they have a bunch of utlility skills that can help you escape if you get overwhelmed.

I have to agree with the others. I don't really think GW2 has a "most soloable" class. Every class can solo at the same level as every other. Maybe there are some that are marginally better than others, but that's probably more how you spec.

 

I play glass cannon thief and rarely ever go down. Thief was the class I found to be most fun to play. You should try to pick your class based on which one you actually see yourself playing for 80 levels. You need to enjoy the combat of your class more than  anything else because everything else becomes much of the same.

I've had an easy time with my Ranger. Bear pets are good tanks when your using a bow. They keep good agro.

They all do just fine. The melee classes are built tougher, and, with the slow animations, the ranged classes can kite everything except event bosses. I can kite veterns on my elementalist..

Gotta say warrior if survivability, strong dps, and all around resourceful is what you're looking for.

If WoW was released today even in its' entirety it would be f2p in 3 months.
Why is it still such a big deal?

I find the ranger's class mechanics to be pretty bog standard compared to some of the interesting things ANet has done with the other classes, but of the six classes I've now taken beyond the starter zones, my Ranger has leveled the fastest and never dies.

 

Thief is probably just as fast a killer, but it demands a lot more attention to keep him alive in difficult encounters.  My warrior is less cool, but I find it easier to play than the thief.  I love my necro, and it will be the first class I hit 80 with,  but in challenging encounters there is a somewhat larger tradeoff between moments of complete ownage and time where you're on the defensive waiting for cooldowns/recharging than other classes IMO.

 

Engineer is meh as a PvE solo class IMO but really fun with one or more players around, and Mesmer is immensely fun in PvP and group play, but gets the thumbs down from me as a PvE solo class -- compared to the others I've played.  I like the tactical approach for short periods of time, but eventually it's like "Ugh, my thief could have pistol whipped these dudes and moved on already."

I play thief and can solo two vets no problem. Only thing is with the thief is you need to be mobile. This isnt a profession for the clicker. It works best with keybinds and escpeially with a multibutton mouse. But once you have the hang of the class you can solo very easily.

Im a heavy condition thief so LDB on multiple mobs plus posion and caltrops and mobs go down quick.

Guardian. 2h sword or 2h hammer / alt set: Mace + shield.

 

Only problem is it is not as fun as other classes, since you can literally stand in front of mobs and never dodge, and in turn never die, just spam buttons.
