    Default Easiest Class to lvl in PvE?

    Hi, just wondering which class and souls are best for sustained lvling? I thought it might be a tank class but Im not sure anymore.

    I saw a video of a Warlock/Necro that looked cool! Not sure how well that would do though.

    Also what would be a good duo for me and my wife....something with good synergy. I was thinking Warrior DPS and Rogue DPS with bard? I have no clue to be honest.

    I hear clerics are ridiculously over powered so maybe two clerics would be the best and easiest to lvl with. One melee and one ranged?

    You know, i made a warrior on Defiant side. I had fun for a bit but it just wasnt the same.

    So i switched to guardian (which i feel looks likes they spent more time on originally maybe), and started up a Rogue- Bladedancer/Assasin/ Nightblade. And i'm having a blast playing as him, He cant take to much damage, but mainly can hold my own solo.

    Throw that in with a healer and your golden. I realyl enjoyed the different play styles of those classes.

    Justicar/Inquisitor/Shaman cleric. Quite frankly, it's insane.

    that was my cleric spec too (for leveling)

    Clerics and Mages (necrolock) are insane at leveling.

    I felt that warriors and rogues a tad more challening.

    Cleric simply because they can do everything. Heal, dps, tank, if you need it a cleric can do it. Itll make taking on elites easy as well. You or her can tank while the other heals.

    Leveling in RIFT is so easy, the only thing you don't want to do is try to level with a tank.

    wow! Thanks for the quick and positive responses!

    I guess Shaman/Inq/Justicar is good for me and switching out Cabalist to replace Shaman would work for my wife, she likes ranged and I prefer melee.

    As far as this nercolock....what is that? I take it the warlock and necromancer souls together? If so how far do they go in each tree? I could use that for the times she doesn't play.

    Currently leveling my alt mage with a 33/33 necromancer warlock build here http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?rift...us.xxohkVVxk.0

    Focus on necro to get the tank pet and soul purge will really help out. The only reason for dominator is for the squirrel ability.

    Nice, I like that build.....both 31 point abilities. Does that do well in PvP?

    I would say its for sure cleric. Once you get to 30ish you can run the duracell cleric build and everything becomes more trivial.

    At the end of the day a self heal makes the biggest difference for pve leveling.
