Part of the reason why I really enjoy playing my hunter is because she is so suited for solo play, grinding, and just plain survivability. My warlock’s spec is far more suited to raid dps than solo play, so I tend to only bring her out for Karazhan or five-man instances; I don’t spend solo time with her. When things really get hairy, the hunter has tons of survival tricks: traps, feign death, wingclip and run, you name it. Unless I do something extremely stupid, she can survive most things. I tend to solo a lot, so she is my favourite character, and I spend most of my non-raiding time with her.
What is your favourite solo class? What do you enjoy playing the most, and which classes have most survivability?
(PS: Speaking of survivability, I started a Draenei paladin last night. :D I suspect I’ll get bored with levelling her, but I was amused last night at how effective she is – set her to attack a target, and I could go away and read for a bit while she whacked away at it….slooooowly, but always successfully. I was running into groups of blood elves to try to liven things up. As a 70, I have a complete loathing of evil chicken-riders, so it was quite satisfying for my little pally to totally kick belf butt…lol, lowbie payback.)
