Be aware: This is not a "which is the most powerfull class"-Thread.
I pretty much enjoy GW2, got a thief to 80 and just love putting my two daggers into some squishy cloth-wearer. But for the time most of my compadres are still leveling i would like to join them with a second char to see some other mechanics.
Since i do not really enjoy 50 vs. 50 fights (especially not in the open field, but this may also be an issue of playing my thief melee most of the time..) i love to just roam, take some points solo or in small groups, i would really like to keep that up with my new char.
What i am looking for:
decent 1vs1 class/specc (don't think any class is filtered by this ..)
i would enjoy run-fast-mechanic (may be a most-time-up-buff or just a passive)
decent flee-mechanic (for running from zergs)
decent solo capability (at least enough for veteran-guarded-flags)
i really enjoy classes with a high/higher skillcap (eg Mr "hope-he-doesn't-remove-my-throw-down" greatsword warrior really doesn't feel right for me)
I think there are several classes that are "ok" for what i am looking, that's why i would really appreciate some field reports, from reading the class-threads i am thinking of a tanky-build-necro or a stun-throwdown-nuke-engineer.
Thanks in advance
