What’s the best class in EQ2?

There’s isn’t one class in EQ2 that is better than all the others. It all depends on your playstyle and what you enjoy playing. Some classes are stronger at certain things though.

What’s the best solo class in EQ2?

Most classes solo and level up well in EQ2. But there are some classes that are faster, can take down harder mobs, and can take down more mobs at a time.
Since you can have a Merc healing you, the DPS classes are often regarded as good soloers. Any of the Mage and Scout classes are good for leveling, along with Fighter classes, especially Paladins and Shadownights. Any class with a pet is also a good choice for soloing.

What’s the best tank in EQ2?

Guardians can take the most damage of any tank in EQ2, but Berserker, Bruiser, and Monk are also very good choices, along with Shadowknights.

What’s the best DPS class in EQ2?

The best DPS class will change from expansion to expansion, but generally, Assassin, Beastlord, Monk, Wizard, Conjurer, and Warlock are good DPS classes.

What’s the best healer in EQ2?

All of EQ2s healer classes are decent. Templar & Inquisitor have some great buffs and decent DPS, in addition, to heals. Channeler also has good DPS.
