    That is one reason I am leveling a warlock, Tired of melee classes and I want a good solo class.

    And I just started leveling up a warrior. Well, DK it seems to be instead. How good are warriors to solo with?

    Doesn't work too well on later wrath content.

    On my ele shammy, every thing in brawler's guild (only soloing I do on him... rest is on my lock) up to GG Engineering fell over really easily. I had a few hiccups along the way (CURSE YOU MILLIE WATT) but the burst coupled with Ancestral Guidance is a pretty insane soloing setup. For 10 seconds.

    One day I'll make an overall compilation on what classes have soloed which bosses... one day (basically compiling all the spreadsheets of each respective class).

    Cant go wrong with a blood dk and a bm hunter

    Honestly, it doesn't matter in the slightest unless your goal is to do the most extreme stuff, in which case you wouldn't really be asking such a question to begin with.

    Just don't go with mage/rogue or something like that, but anything that is a hunter/warlock/paladin/warrior/monk/dk/druid can just faceroll most old content.

    Enhance is far better for soloing than elemental (with the odd exception) on cutting edge bosses, and our 5.2 set bonuses will make us even better.

    anything up to BC content (including sunwell, despite some mechanical shit) can be soloed by almost every class, as long as some good raiding gear is available and you dont try it with 384 greens@lvl 85.

    and then, the harder it gets, the better blood DKs become.

    Wrong. Level 90 Prot Paladins can solo 25 Heroic LK. That makes them the third class currently able to solo him.

    Blood DK (first did in mostly heroic BiS dps gear and past Enrage, later done by someone in 485 or so gear) > Hunter (nearly full BiS, had to survive past Enrage) > Protection Paladin (nearly full heroic BiS dps gear, still hit enrage).

    Next tier Guardian Druid and Brewmaster Monk should be able to solo Heroic 25 LK. Probably doable now but haven't heard anyone that has.

    For Cataclysm bosses, it matters. Even for the non-extreme ones, the difficulty of each encounter may be very different depending on your class. For instance the bosses who regularly nuke (Halfus, Valiona, Baleroc, Morchok) may be painful as a warrior. That's just an example, I'm not stating that warriors are not good as soloing, but every class has its pros and cons.
    I'd say DK is the most versatile class (can be full life whenever needed, can have a pet, has ams, etc) and that's why many people tend to recommend it. That, and because of your e-fame, I guess, you should really have solo'd some things on your paladin before you solo them with your dk, that might have helped to change people's mind.
    But yeah, most tank class and pet class should be able to clean (or almost clean) Cataclysm content, but sadly there isn't someone as talented, devoted and geared than you among every class.

    Anyway, for most solo Cata you'll want either a tank class or a pet class. For anything before Cata, any class should be fine.

    I'd say Blood DK, without a doubt one fo the best 1H sword in game is Spine of one thousand cuts (iirc?) rare trash drop in DS

    Think you'll find that level 80 Prot Pallies using non level restricted cata/mop gear.

    There is a lot more to high end solo'ing than bursting. Ele Shamans would get OBLITERATED attempting H Lich King 25.

    As for the topic of the thread...

    Blood DK/Hunter > everything else by a lot.

    Well there are a lot of opinions on this obviously, especially since now everything up to and including most of wrath's raid content is completely trivial for most semi-decent soloing classes.

    Point is, most dps and tank specs can more and less efficiently solo almost everything up to wrath.

    However when it comes to the bosses that are actually challenging to solo right now DK's, hunters and now in MoP warlocks can do more than the other classes.

    People suggesting that classes like shaman is a smart choice for soloing clearly don't do the challenging bosses.

    Blood DKS are one of the best for soloing stuff in my opinion, pretty sure hunters can solo a fair bit, could be wrong
    This is my Sig, there are many like it, but this one is mine.
