I'm brand new to the game and was wondering if someone could help me with some advice to select my first class.

I want to be able to solo as much as possible. Since I hear grouping is hard.

I want decent DPS with a little AoE, I prefer things to be quick but not incredibly fast.

I want good survivability and be able to solo effectively without help from others.

I also want to kind of follow the lore.

Any advice?
