There are options to assist all classes with this.  You can upgrade your skills to give HP/MP etc per hit and you can use crystals that will do the same.  Warrior/Sorc are also very strong for this.

Most if not all awakening classes have a heal that comes with awakening skills. Plus you can add on heals for skill awakening. I never used any pots grinding.

Witch and Valk never need pots for PVE. But valk is slow to clear with. You don't even need to use your skill add-ons to accomplish this. Or crystals. Desert Debuff is never an issue for them either.

But as others have said, there are in game mechanisms to assist with this for other classes, if you want.

+1 and both are pretty fun to play and learn (Still have to level my witch but i'll get to it eventually when im done with other "plans)

Test em out , lvl 55-56 isin't hard to get , 1-2 days and you can get an ideea if you'd like it or not.

Wizard > Witch, then far far away Valks and other chars but they need good gear to be able to grind without using pots.

Wiz and witch can grind without gear and still not needing pots, also they can kill strong monsters requiring 40-50 less AP than other classes.

nice try, just because some classes have higher skill cap does not mean they have slow clear speed.

A lvl 59 overgeared in a 57 zone. Good way to showcase skill and clear speed of a class. Smart :)

Witch IMO. Wiz has a strong PVP toolset and a great 100%, but IMO Witch is stronger for PVE grinding thanks to Fissure Wave being so strong and short cooldown.

One might surmise that other classes with the same level and gearscore could be considerably faster in the same setting.

I am a Valk main, have PvE rolled skill addons for mana and hp recovery, and use level 2 herbals on cooldown while still running out of mana.

If you are not using pots on a Valkyrie then you are not doing it right. We are so disgustingly WP hungry that it's not even funny.

Don't necessarily need a vacuum when your abilities have a big enough AOE radius. I'm recommending Witch, not ranger. I believe the OP asked for a class that doesn't chug pots.

^ can confirm. I never use a single pot at grinding. Still always carry some herbal and HP pots around for PvP though. But not needed at PvE. Insane selfheals if ever needed(never use it in pve) and almost every single awakening skill has good WP recovery on it. 

Once you git gud at giant and have some decent gear, nobody can touch you aswell. I eat witches and wizards for breakfast ;)

Actually now that you say it, I did in fact have addons for health and DP most of the time. I was kinda mixing witch and Valk in there.

WP hungry? maybe, but WP is easy to gain too. wasn't an issue for me, but I haven't played them much in a long bit. haven't spent a ton of time post awa.

I see, then that's why. I thought you would be referring to post awak.

Valks never had wp issues pre awakening, and are now one of the most WP hungry classes in the entire game.

A wizard with 50 less AP than that Valk clear as fast or faster.

Wonder sharing how much AP? Does not matter, I bet that any wiz, witch, ranger, warrior with your AP can steal every single of your kills.

I have to say, i am so impressed how valks have managed to create this stigma that they are underpowered in every possible 

 

ive grinded with many valks that can easily match my grinding pace (ranger) the only thing they slightly lack is sustained movment speed inbetween mobs, thats all that slows them down 

 

and a desent valk that know what theyre doing can beat rangers to a pulp in pvp without a sweat
