Hey there. I'm coming back from a long time break. I only have time to play one class now and I want to create a new character. I'm debating between Warden and Captain. From what I've read in the forums the Captain seems to be less wanted end game than the warden. Rather than asking the pointless "What should I make" question I have a few questions that I'd like someone educated in both to answer to help me reach a decision.
Which of the two can put out more damage when traited for damage?
How much is the damage difference between the two, ie are they close matched or one is far superior?
Which can solo better?
Which can tank better?
What roles to the two usually play in raids and group content?
Which is more effective in PvMP?
What makes the Captain stand out above the Warden?
What makes the Warden stand out above the Captain?
Any final notes on either?
I've only taken both of them to 20 at one time or another. Basically I like the pet for the captain because my high level is a loremaster and I'm use to having a pet. I like the 'lore' of the captain and the feel of it. I'm not too happy with what I've read about the poor dps window from 30-50. I do like support, but I like support that can also do damage. My biggest gripe with Captain is they can only be humans. I 'hate' playing humans in a fantasy world where you can be anything else.
