Captain may be your best choice. It's been traditionally called a hybrid class, but with today's expansion we become a class that can choose healing, damage, or tanking and be good at it. You have self healing through a few different mechanisms. You also don't need to be alone, because starting around level 10 or so you can summon a Herald to fight alongside you. In groups Captains provide many sought-after buffs and can fill in whatever role (well, not so much with the crowd control) that the group may need.
