    Default Bruiser/Monk

    Which is your preference? I have played a 80 level bruiser and i also have a 37th level monk, and definately finding it easier to tank with bruiser and dps with monk.

    Play a SK. They out damage, out tank and are more fun than a monk/bruiser. And by out damage I mean they are 3-4 times the damage. And they can lock aggro on multiple encounters like they are glue. Wizzies have a hard time pulling them off.

    being a t2 now bruiser with 170aa, unless the SK is using myth and t3+ I havent had one hold aggro over me, yes once or twice, but I have still been asked by our fury's or wardens to please let the bruiser tank as easier to heal.

    Granted it may be different with a bruiser, my experience was with a monk. Aggro control for multiple encounters was not great. But it was better than a warrior. An SK using the right AA's are god like and have been for about 2 years.

    Sk's are a dime a dozen on Oasis, and most play them like crap.

    But my bruiser has 4 aoe attacks and one that also gives 16 sec of AOE attack for double attacks each. And thats usually enough to keep even wizards casting AOE's on me, And i have no spec on taunts yet.

    Tried playing a monk near the beginning. Deleted it after a week. Just wasnt fun for me. Now Bruiser....Bruiser was my first choice and remains my class of play.

    I have a monk on Najena, 5 piece T3 and 2 Piece T2 and fabled epic. One dam kill from myth which will give me chain like mitigation. Aggro isnt so bad if you build your group right. Grab some hate xfer peeps and you are all set for the most part. I can tank most group instances, raid is a differnt story, doable little harder tho, as the tank get most of the hate xfer.
