Love how this turned into an SK thread when his original post asked for a great grouping and solo class.

OP, when you quit your SK later, roll a Shaman or an Enchanter. They are, without a doubt, the two best soloers that people also want in their groups. Both are also a ton of fun to play.
Shaman is pretty god damn boring most of the way to 60 actually

Well any class can be boring, depending on how you play it. I have leveled a few different classes to 60, and while the Chanter was the most fun, the Shaman was one of the more fun. Most boring was a Wiz, 30 levels of quadkiting is beyond miserable.

Admittedly the SK was short lived for me. I do appreciate the suggestion but I couldn't get past the faction situation.

I have next to 0 interest in an enchanter. Everybody tells me they're a ton of fun but I just have no interest in being the crowd control guy in groups and I don't think charm has the appeal for me it does for others.

A Barbarian (because of faction) shaman I could get behind but I really have no idea how to play one other than the healing aspect. What is expected from shaman in groups? What is the strategy for solo? Any tips are appreciated.

Shaman's are glorified buff bots, slow bots, and/or heals. Very few times will you be able to get in there and do dmg/melee

If you want basically the same role as SK but with good faction play a Paladin.

You'll be group tank almost certainly and sometimes also the puller. Still have spells to get easy aggro and some utility.

Edit: kind of missed the solo component to this, so before I get jumped on...

Paladin isn't a great solo class but it CAN solo. The higher you go the slower it gets but it's also safe, they have lots of tools to be highly successful at it, and you can even do it in dungeons with good ZEM. It's not a primarily leveling path but it's a nice to have when you're waiting for a group spot to open up or no one is in the zone.

Not a super flattering description but noted.

Interesting thought. I may just do that.

And here is a crappy cellphone photo of my monitor i took a long time ago of my Erudites armor [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.] It really doesn't do it justice

Erudite knights are by far the best looking melee characters in classic eq. Praise Prexus!
