I did think many classes could solo to max level. I'm thinking about soloing difficult content, like solo-group instances.
Well, I suppose soloing difficult content will require serious gear and spell acquirements. A lot of classes can go into tough instances and do well, but you would need the proper gear for that.
Monks don't do that well for soloing group instances, or rather not the high level ones. I can take my monk to just about any instance now, mentored down that is. Although I have taken down lvl 90 triple heroics on my own too, but that's after the most recent expansion, when stats and mits were boosted quite a lot with new gear and in older zones. Problem with a monk is that if a target has a lot of hp, it's usually no good. We only get one healing spell, and a self rez spell too with AA's so technically two I suppose, even three as that self rez spell can nowadays be boosted by more AA's. But our dps isn't all that grand, so prolonged fights don't usually go well for monks. (imo anyway) We can try to avoid all we want, we do get hit from time to time.
(I did forget to add: with our own heal, feign death and invisibility, a monk is a great class for soloing and having fun. It's hilarious to use your group fd for the first time by accident and nobody knows what hit them :D. We even have a fear spell, although I have no idea when that one was added. In short, great for soloing, that's for sure.) Edited, Aug 16th 2011 12:29am by Zieveraar
