Best Solo Class?

I have unreliable playing times so I often end up solo. What is a good class for solo survivability and dps on the Republic side? Commando / Medic?

Jedi Sage/Sith Sorcerer is pretty good for soloing. The first companion they get is a melee tank, and the player can do respectable ranged DPS as well as bubble/heal their tank.

Sage was the "easiest" Republic solo class for me personally in beta. I don't know if that makes it the "best", but I had a LOT of fun with it. The pace can be slow depending on how you play it. In beta I found this class to have the highest occurrence of other PCs joining in my fights (either accidentally or intentionally). Some times they'd be like "looked like you could use some help", and I'd be "well that fight took a long time but neither health bar ever went below 90% so it wasn't like I was in any danger Plus I was eating supper at the same time.". Actually made some friends that way. Doesn't bother me but I mention it because lots of other players told me that kind of thing bothers them. So if you roll a sage and play at a leisurely pace I'd expect these things to happen.

Yes, it is SW(KO)TOR. I like it that way, except when I don't.

Pretty much anyone can solo regular content with ease. Heroic+2 is a little stickier, but doable if you are careful, but only up to about level 18 or so... gets a lot more difficult to solo Heroic+2 after that.

I was able to solo Heroic+2 with Vanguard and Aric by having Aric engage first and us dpsing down the weak enemies first. Then I would taunt the mobs off him and tank the rest while he dpsed them down.

The easiest healer to solo with would be the sage or scoundrel since they both start with tanks. That being said any AC is solo friendly with the ease of this game.

-Viable and worthwhile are not the same when it comes to class design.

The easiest are the ones that can spec heals and have a tank pet, or the ones that can spec tank and have a heal pet.

So... all of them.

Classes that have either a tank or healer companion. Preferably a tank.
Dynaster- Operative Medic
Chillum- Deception Assassin

Jedi Sage for Republic and Bounty Hunter of either AC for Empire. You want a combination of a tank/dps and heals as quickly as possible. Sage can heal and their first companion is a tank. BH can tank or DPS and their first companion is a healer.

Any class is fine though. It's not like one is WAY better than the other, it's really only the early game where there's an obvious advantage for classes with good starter companions like Mako and Qyzen Fess.

While the Commando is AMAZING for soloing random groups of weak enemies because they have such ridiculous AoE damage, they really struggle with ranged Elites until L18+. Aric Jorgan is easily the worst starting companion in the game. I guess if you go Medic, it's super easy, but it would also be extremely slow.

My main is a Commando, currently level 19.
