Default Most gear dependent non-tank?

Hey all!

I started a warrior because I was drawn to how meaningful gear is for them, and have really enjoyed feeling the impact of getting better and better gear for mine.

My warrior is nearing his final state (not BIS or anything), and I'm trying to decide what to work on next. I'm curious for people's thoughts on what the most gear dependent non-tank class is? When I say "gear dependent" I mean like, the difference between a freshly 60 EC geared toon and a pretty decked out one is particularly noticeable and meaningful in a raiding context.

It might be like a rogue absolutely shreds stuff when geared vs meh when EC + epic, or a bard survives kites way easier with big hp and saves.

I'm reasonably familiar with the game, but am having trouble focusing in on something and am interested to hear what people think!

Anyone have thoughts on it?

Thanks!

I assume by tank you strictly mean Warrior/Paladin/Shadowknight only. I just want to clarify since Monks aren't a tank class, but are quite tanky.

Melee-wise Rogue/Monk/Ranger will all see noticeable gains with great gear as opposed to meh EC or self found gear.

Caster-wise Shamans see a large boost in power when fully geared. Having Epic, Fungi Tunic, Fungi Staff, JBB, and Black Fur Boots is much stronger than a Shaman with just basic EC gear filling their slots while leveling. Torpor is a game changer too. You will play differently once you get Torpor.

Is there really more level 60 shamans than there are copies of torpor?

Shamanquest is real. Lots of people want to solo farm stuff, few can play enchanter.

Yeah shaman has the lazy playstyle appeal, but a lot of people abandon them when they get finished.
Kinda boring at 60.

My vote is for Monk or Ranger. I think they're a lot of fun to gear up, and noticeable when you get a big upgrade. Rogue was pretty fun as well...but idk I think Monk or Ranger would be a bit more noticeable.

Generally agree if we're talking "noticeable" in terms of just general feel/at a glance

But if you're parsing DPS in a raid context, a really well geared Rogue can be unreal in terms of seeing the output
