    Default Random Returning questions! - Tanks and Merc Mechanics

    Hey guys!

    I am thinking of returning to the game, and haven't played since SF. As is the norm for my EQ2 excursions, i'll be bringing a few others and rerolling.

    I have a few questions on new mechanics right now though!

    First off:
    How are mercs for tanking all the group dungeons? Chances are I wont even touch quests, going from one dungeon to the next. I may or may not have 1-2 people to play with during this. Can I run with both a healer and tank merc? Or should I roll a tank? I was thinking of going beastlord, though its not required.
    Second:
    If I do need a tank, what is the best one right now? Back when I quit, it was SK. I've read that monks and brawlers are pretty amazing these days though. I wouldn't mind rolling one of those up.
    And finally:
    How active are endgame 1 group dungeons? Are they still difficult enough to be a challenge, or did they go the WoW route of making them ridiculously easy? I will never be raiding, so this will be my final target. I love how challenging EQ2 dungeons were around the time of Shadow Odyssey. Can you do them with mercs?
    Thanks!

    Random dungeoning doesnt seem really active. Bringing friends is good idea. You can solo many dungeons with a mercenary though. If you plan on playing a Beastlord the inquisitor mercenary is a good one to run with. As far as tanking if you are only running heroics i would stay away from Guardian because it seems to be more of a raid tank. Sk's are viable and i have heard good things about monks. As far as challenge it depends on player skill and gear in my opinion. I would just try a few dungeons and see which ones you enjoy running. I would stick to blue or green heroics if moloing (soloing with a merc).
