    Cleric or Mage. Probably a toss up.

    I dont think anything can outperform a duracel cleric, but ele/stormcaller/chloro's can take out some trash when they want to.

    Perhaps a well geared warrior with good greaters and an insanity sliver, have seen some solo 2x Mathosian packs.

    I reckon mages are to squishy so go a cleric for it.

    At lvl 50, clerics, mages, and warriors can all AOE farm with ridiculous efficiency.

    I'm partial to clerics though. I used a variant of the "duracell" build up to 50, but once you're 50 and have started gearing up in experts, nothing really beats 45/11/10 Inq Just Sent. Fanaticism + Soul Drain + CoO = everything's dead and you never left max health.

    This.

    If you want some margin for error, clerics are pretty indestructible. There are other options, but I'm not sure if they beat the survivability of clerics.

    Ranger. Divert Rage+Rain of Arrows = profit. Its insane how much damage rain of arrows does compared to almost any other aoe ability in the game, and its nearly spammable. Pwnage!

    Maybe so, but if said mobs kill your pet before the AoE kills them...then you're pretty much toast.

    Duracell cleric is way more solid. More dps, better survivability, and zero down time. It can also easily corale many mobs that are spread out.

    I think cleric has it with soul drain alone. That spell wrecks face. And they can self heal so much its silly.

    Back when invasions were worth farming for planarite I would send in a Greater Earth Elemental, pop my CDs and kill 10+ invasions with Lightning Storm + Charged Field. Anything greater than 10, I had to use that special ability which increased damage done and decreased damage received.

    I've found that Warriors are like Feminists. They want equality when it suits them, but the rest of the time they want to be treated special.

    Warriors and Clerics are best in my opinion, however at low gear Clerics will outshine a Warrior by a pretty large margin. Warriors just don't have enough to heal through all the damage really large packs can dish out (however you can take on 4-5 pretty efficiently)

    At my gear level though (full raid) I have yet to find a cleric that can out AOE grind some of the packs of what I can manage.
