I would like to get some input from you all about classes seeing as I am new. Im having a hard time focusing down on one class to make a main and thought id come here with a few questions to see if I can narrow down my choices. Im currently playing and raiding actively in everquest 1 so as far as what im looking for, Im looking to play the game as a way to pass time while not raiding, quest, explore and just have fun doing so. I enjoy doing this solo as i can take my own time doing things and not have to worry about am i doing it right or is my reading of quest going to slow people down. I like melee over casters but if I play a caster generally its a healer. I play a shaman in everquest 1. What im looking for is a class that isnt strongly gear dependent, that can solo quest well, get around easily, and is enjoyable. I was told SK was a good choice, however it seems to go against what i have in mind as generally shield classes do things slower and are more gear dependent. What other classes are good to look at? How are the druids/shaman solo abilities? Can they melee at all or is it all spell dps? Other questions I have are do i need the expansions to enjoy the game? I dont have the money to get another expansion as i have just got the one for everquest 1 so basically i have a new account that i just tagged a game card onto to start. What server should I start on? Does race matter or is it play what looks best?
