To the original poster, Teldiin welcome back to the game. Please do not let these boards deter you from the game, EQ is fun and challenging. All 3 tanks can molo effectively, some will just kill faster then others. As a Paladin your heal spells can save groups and like a Shadowknight you will be able to "solo" some mobs. Each class in the game has its strengths and weaknesses, find the one you have the most fun playing and stick with it.
