My friends and I have decided to reroll and they've chosen a Wizard and Inquisitor. I'd like to play a tank class to kinda round out the group, but I've played a monk before and would like something a little different. Bruisers seem nice but skills seem too similar.

SKs sound cool, but they've chosen good so an evil class would make grouping at the beginning impossible? It's been several years since I've played so I can't remember if that causes problems throughout the game or just problematic with starting areas? Any suggestions are welcome.

Bruiser is a lot of fun if that is what you decide to go with.

Care to elaborate? As I mentioned in the first post I played a monk before and it seemed very similar to the bruiser at least in skills the first 10 levels or so I played already. Do they differ greatly at later levels? I originally played the monk up until level 70 and I'd hate to basically reroll the same toon all over 4 or 5 years later, lol.

Both Monk and Bruiser play a lot differently then they did back in T7 when you last played. Both brawlers are very solid tanks now. You won't get a good feel for how any class plays until the upper levels. Monk is a single target tank while the bruiser is more of an AE tank. There is also a matter of buffs. Inquis buffs haste which helps bruiser more than monk since monk can cap their haste with solo buffs and a bruiser can't.

Hope this helps you.
