Just trying to get an idea of what to make my free 80 into, that will be turned to the guy that solos raids (I'll still group though).
I know DKs have always been #1. Hunters were #2, but they've been (from what I've heard from those on PTR) been badly nerfed. And I guess hunters always get nerfed post expansion release and become one of the least played classes. What will the new #2 soloer be? I know the majority say #3 is a tank paladin, so will that be moved up to #2?
Currently have a level 90 shaman, but I only use him for PvP. And I have a level 85 priest, and that is 100% group (he is already in queue to join a raid guild when he gets to level 90). So I just want something that isn't a DK that can solo fairly well. DKs can solo some cata raids, but I don't enjoy them. Hunters could too and maybe still will, but if not the next patch, my friend said eventually hunters will suck like usual. His main was a hunter, but he got annoyed that blizzard always nerfed them to uselessness and didn't know what to do with them. Which is a shame, because hunters look like a fun class.
So come 5.1...what will the new #2 and #3 solo classes be for those that have played on the PTR server?
