Decided to switch from Guardian to Defiant and will be rolling a new class to start from scratch. Have never played a Defiant so the quests should be fresh and fun. Have narrowed it down to between either a mage or rogue. I dont really have much experience with either class. I know rogues can tank and get instant expert queues but thats about useless as expert gear on a tank is pointless since it seems everyone wants all tanks to be in full HK gear even for GSB or even Dail and Weekly raids.
I havent played a mage much either and just wondering if there is a demand for mages in raids and how wanted they are. I figured it might be easier to get into raiding as a mage because I can go DPS or I could go chloro and heal or even archon and support. Bard seems like too much of a chore, tanking is out due to unrealistic gear requirements so the only option for Rogues is DPSing. I figure playing Mage would give me the best shot as I can play 3 different roles.
