    Mage is a little tougher to solo with. Also, cleric has the most versatility in healing.

    On the flip side, although Mage only has one healing soul, it's by far the most-fun and most-versatile...

    "not smart"
    "inconsiderate"
    "self-entitled"
    "jealous"
    "ignorant"


    That's all name-calling that you've done on this thread...

    Pre-mades are good. But they should be dealt with in CQ similarly to how they're dealt with in warfronts. Once there are three premade raids available, then all can enter. Until that time, they wait...
