Hello all,

After a 3 year break, I am pondering coming back to EQ2.  I never got too far in my first attempt - got a brigand to level 30 (level 31 jewelcrafter).  Had a lot of fun.  Thinking of going the distance this time - so I will be looking for a good mix of solo/group content with a 50% chance of raiding in the endgame.  So a few questions:

1.  Realistically, for the purposes of leveling, how well do dirges do solo (say compared to a swashbuckler)?

2.  In low level content (10-50), how hard is it to find a group?  Are people doing that content in groups?  (I have no friends or spouse that plays EQ2:  it's just me + sufficient social skills.  Will I be mostly alone?)

3.  I generally like playing support but every once in a while I must be able to do things on my own.  Will dirge work for this?

4.  I generally don't like fighting styles that involve kiting (though I must say, I'm quite good at kiting).  Do dirges have to kite to handle challenging mobs?

Thank you in advance for your feedback.
