Hello! I played EQ last probably around Planes of Power, always casually. Got the itch to try it again, to see what it's evolved into now (so not the TLP or P99 versions). It looks like mercenaries are a thing, which sounds pretty sweet since I expect to solo with that merc most of the time. I also have seen from different threads here that Almar's guides for leveling are pretty solid. My main question: will I be able to tackle the solo portions of his guides throughout the leveling experience with a mercenary regardless of the class? I know soloing used to be mainly the purview of a few classes like necro, druid, and mage. Could I follow Almar's suggested leveling path pretty safely with a merc as, say, a wizard? No interest in quad-kiting, if that's even still a thing. What about with classes like warrior or rogue, to take extreme examples that could never really solo before? Note that I won't have any twinking or starting plat. Thank in advance for sharing your thoughts and experiences!
