Best boss solo class?

Hi, I was just wondering what is the best class to solo a boss or a really tough monster. I was thinking it would be either paladin, necro, or ranger, although I'm not sure.
Help appreciated.

Paladin, Nercomancer and both Cleric and Sage are great at soloing bosses.

Paladin - Obvious.
Nercomancer - Debuffs, Drain Health, Pet Summon and good damage.
Cleric - Buffs, Strong heals, high HP/Def, and stuns.
Sages - DoT Heals, pushback/stuns and various damage methods.

Ranger has some difficulty soloing bosses. In dungeons, they are immune to stuns. They get into close range too often and too fast for them to use their ranged skills. Field bosses though, sure, they can take those down pretty easily. Bait bosses (ones summoned by items) are difficult at the start since they have to start the match in close range. As soon as they get to level 40 and get the second level of weasel dodge it gets a lot easier.

Ok, I guess I'm down to a Cleric or Paladin. Who do you think could survive longer in a fight?

Well, technically, the Cleric would have the edge, simply because of better heals. But the Pally is far better at dealing damage, which I'd say would give it the edge in actually winning.

Ok, but I think I have a decision to make...but I'm leaning towards a cleric. Thank you very much. I appreciate it.

There are many variables that contributes to which class could last longer in a fight such as the imbalances(differences) between classes and also the tactics used.

Sins are great, but unlike the ones I mentioned, they can't heal themselves. They have to rely on weapon specials, potions and teammates to survive.

Zerkers are great. You get a 100% stunning attack that's easily spammable, you can fire off huge damage absurdly fast, reduce boss's MP so they can't use skills at all, AoE mobs, increase your own attack power, speed, and accuracy with chance to double attack, etc.

Keep your armor updated, and you can live for a LONG time. Keep Spamming stuns and bosses will go down so fast you won't even NEED to heal.
