    You should offspec guardian to compete with warlock/hunter.

    Warlocks can solo things that a poorly configured 5 man can't kill so no contest there but Guardian is better than Rogue.

    Feral isn't much better than a rogue for soloing.
    You would need to spec guardian or balance if you wanted to solo the harder things, with guardian being the best for most fights.

    Feral is probably much worse than a rogue for soloing.
    No feint, no cloak - as others have said, guardian or boomkin are better specs.
    Mew!

    Yes you can. Start off as a kitty/pounce then go bear and facerolltank him.
    check out youtube for some solo vids

    even feral can pretty simply, you only need to worry about fear and have your defensives / hotw hots or trinket ready.

    I would say feral is pretty average at soloing, it's got good self heals and survivability, but nothing exceptional.

    Guardian is pretty good (like most tank specs) but generally will have trouble competing with Monk or DK in terms of soloing things that are exceptionally difficult.

    And almost any spec can solo a warbringer if you know what you're doing, that's not really a meaningful comparison for anything.

    I used to solo in feral (before the switch to Guardian...) but then I switched over to balance for soloing. Couldn't be happier, it's a lot of fun.

    I would just like to say that it is MUCH harder for a feral to solo spine 10 man then it is for a druid to solo spine 10 man.
    Anyone ever notice how the sun seems to shine silverish now? Didn't it used to shine goldish? PM me if you've noticed this.

    This is crazy, feral is fantastic for old content. You have most of the tools from guardian with the DPS of feral. If you are talking about anything previous to this expansion you can out heal most of it with Ysara's Gift, throw in Healing Touch procs and you are well ahead of the game on most content. If things are going badly you still have a strong bear form utilizing Ysara's, Healing Touch procs, frenzied regen and your cool downs.

    The classes these people are comparing you to are soloing very specific current content, guardian in old content is overkill.

    Depends on your definition of "old." If you mean instances/raids from classic to WotLK, Feral is much more efficient than Guardian in most cases. If we're talking Cata raids to present, Feral likely would have an extremely hard time compared to Guardian.

    *edit* - I suppose, since Warbringers were mentioned, most non-raid overworld content is doable as Feral, but Guardian will generally succeed with less of a headache where Feral falls short in many cases.
