    You mentioned oracle, so I'm assuming you're a cleric.

    Druid fits all those qualifications except experts. It might do well in experts, I don't know. I don't like using pet specs in dungeons so I haven't tried it on mine.

    Druid is a pet spec, mostly melee soul with a few ranged abilities. I think the normal spec is 61 druid/10 shaman/5 inquisitor. You have choices between a healing pet, a dps pet (ranged), a dps pet (melee), or a tanking pet. Note that with 'aid of the forest' toggled, all your pets can heal. Pros: high survival, a bit of cc/utility, decent dps with a pretty simple rotation. Cons: you need to stay in melee for good dps, aoe ability is next to none. The pets might be a con if you dislike pet specs. There are higher parsing specs.

    Shaman or inquisitor are both good builds for experts. Shaman has better dps, inquisitor has range. Oracle works decently in experts as it has good dps for a support, dependent on how much support you give/is required.

    You will need to use different builds for soloing and experts. Druid is the only spec that even comes close to doing well at both, but even Druid is far from the best spec for most expert bosses and you'd want to use different variations for solo and dungeons.

    Oracle probably isn't bad for dungeons. My cleric was already near 60 when oracle came out, so I didn't experience leveling on the build. Typically, support souls are weaker on dps than standard dps souls. But when no support is required and I'm just keeping up the dps rotation, my oracle's damage isn't far behind my inquisitors. So normal rules may not apply to oracle. Oracle is a group oriented build, it's what support means. In addition to your personal dps, you get skills that buff raid(group) dps and provide shielding. If you spec into warden, you get a little bit more offhealing than oracle by itself provides, but the other preset built including oracle does higher dps.

    For solo play, it doesn't really matter what you play. You can do just about any crazy combination you want and make it work. That doesn't really apply at endgame, where you're expected to know several builds and be willing/able to switch to the 'best' one for a particular fight when needed. My best advice is to play around with different options and see what works for you.
