So I got to thinking how I would be making money end game and being a hunter, I knew aoe farming wouldn't work out for me. So I was wondering, which classes are the best for aoe farming solo... like pulling an entire low lvl instance and killing it all up in one big fight.
I have done AoE farming on a Druid, Warlock, DK, Rogue and Monk. All were just as easy. Know the class and it will be easy.
I have to agree. With the addition of a lot of quests that benefit from AOE they've given AOE tools to every class.

I clear mobs faster than everyone else I've seen in the Cathedral of Darkness, and without my pet. I just gather all of the mobs and then multi-shot twice. Thank you for all my Frostweave cloth and green gear to be disenchanted for infinite dusts. Both sell well and for good money on the AH.

For AoE farming, hunter is the only way to go IMO (I've tried it on Ret Pally, Feral and Balance Druid and Enh Shammy).

I'll go with this. Hunters are great for soloing of any kind. Multi-shot is terrific for AoE farming. You can use your traps/trap launcher as well.
I don't have any of these classes past 70 but I'd really look into warlock, hunter, and mage. Leveling a warlock right now and it's stupid how quickly I'm burning through everything in my path. By contrast leveling my rogue and feral druid is kind of like getting a root canal.
