I was maining my bruiser (Mcfloppin) for awhile prior to me leaving on Permafrost server.

so here is what I posted on the eq2 forums however I find I get some better answers here so Im trying both

So I love my bruiser...and my monk though bruiser more.
I just came back after quit some time away. Im 95 with raid gear from back in the day. However I keep hearing people saying brawlers are screwed this xpac. .
I have been told (by a lot of people) that mitigation and high HP are top and brawlers are pretty much worthless now for tanking, groups, solo etc.

Can anyone give me any insight into this?
Or should I just say screw it and go back to my pally or sk?
