    Not sure if anyone even still visits or monitors this board (doesn’t really look like any board gets activity other than 20s), but wanted to see if anyone’s still here.

    I recently became interested in soloing dungeons... moreso on a level 10 than anything. That said, I know next to nothing about level 10s, how they work/scale/fare in dungeons, etc. Sounds like it’s possible to solo on Prot Pally and Hunter maybe... is it possible to do this on any other class/specs?

    Also, is there any easy-to-obtain gear that makes it easier or more gimmicky that allows you to cheese certain parts more effectively?

    Thanks for any help!

    Brewmaster monk, prot pal, or any healer spec.

    Huntard maybe?

    There is no more "look at this Level 10 1-shot an entire Instance" but given proper gearing you can drudge through many Dungeons on most Level 10's solo.

    Hunters can still solo Dungeons fine, but it's much slower than during pre-Patch. There are a few Dungeons here and there that you will find a huge PITA on any Class at 10 just due to the mechanics, massive Trash packs, constant Silence/Fear/Stuns/etc.

    The VoidWalker isnt a reliable tank, his Health pool isnt high enough nor can you supply him with enough Healing to even survive or do much damage. It always ends with either the pet dies 1st, or I die 1st because my damage sometimes pulls aggro. (soul fire)

    What changed? There was an older thread in here where people were talking about how they could blast through dungeons in five minutes?

    Mechanics, gear, something patched?

    10's used to have access to iLvL 49 Artifact Weapons + (4) iLvL 50 body pcs + HoA + (2) pcs of Azerite gear + several iLvL 44 pcs. We were basically God Tier. 10's are still good and scale better than any other Twink Level post nerfs (read TTK averages) but it's no where close to what they were for a couple weeks.

    Oh, damn — I hadn’t realized that. I was thinking they were still dominant, but sounds like they’re really not that much different than 20s.

    Certain classes at lvl 10 are still in a league of their own.

    Sounded like just Prot Pally and maybe Hunter.

    On paper , I thought Fury Warrior with shield seemed good lol.

    Prot paladin, brewmaster, hunter, priest, and arcane mages are a few of the classes I have personally witnessed absolutely wreck with currently attainable gear. My prot paladin doesn’t even have epic relics and it may be (pound for pound) the strongest tank on the server lol.

    Arcane mage sorta can. You just have to stay at 4 charges and kill them before they kill you :)

    10s > 20s for dungeons and it's not even close. Some 20s can't even solo dungeons while I'm still pulling entire trashpacks all the way to the boss.

    10s are still insane in dungeons. The only reason to say they're not is if you were around for the pre-patch madness. Obviously, compared to that, we're not as strong.

    If I can run a dungeon that a guildie needs, they usually ask me to queue with them. lol

    I always hated soloing as rogue most, I think.

    Would resto be able to do it on a long enough scale with heals or guardian?

    I’m also interested to see if Rogue or Druid could...

    Would be awesome to just stealth to the bosses and not have to beef around with pack after pack of trash mobs — unless those are super easy and quick to do too, lol.

    Lovin’ the feedback, thank you!

    @Zemmix The problem with Guardian at 10 is Blizz took pretty much all the Abilities away that make it any good. There's zero AOE so you're killing things 1 by 1. Resto isn't a bad spec perse, just going to take you forever to solo a Dungeon as ANY Druid spec at 10.

    What’s the most important thing(s) — AoE damage, self-heals, single-target damage, etc.?

    Of all the toolkits, wouldn’t a Warrior just wreck shit at 10? They have Victory Rush for on-demand heals every time you kill a mob, Shield Block to reduce damage, Execute, and can have Whirlwind for AoE.

    I guess I’m confused what makes Paladin so superior other than having Divine Shield and a castable heal?

    I’m also very intrigued by Arcane too now, haha... just doesn’t seem right that a Mage can solo a dungeon!
