I'm playing the same class (Monk->Tyrant->Grand Khavatari) since closed beta in Korea. The only reason i was playing a duelist was due to original change to my class, since after the introduction of GoD patch, there was just 1 Tyrr class for all, so the game forced us all go that route. As far as GK's strength overall - you are right they are a mid tier. They are rather weak in pvp compared to other Tyrr classes due to lack in a CC, but probably #2 in PVE after Titan, #3 in AOE PVE after Titan and Dreads.

However, if you are playing the way i am Main+Box Iss, i'd say they are a good choice, since playing 3 clients only drops my dmg due to a constant need for alt+tab.

Can GK solo AOE top Atelia spots - yes, is it as good as Titan/Dread/Maestro? No.
Can Titan solo aoe Superion w/o SoS -> No. GK can.

All things being equal GK are probably #2 in PVP strength after Gladiators. But due to RNG they drop down to nearly last spot, i'm just abusing my knowledge of other classes, knowing what their weaknesses and strength are. It's unfortunate that the majority of NA players fail to understand it, or just don't bother to put some thought into it.

P.S. I'd recommend getting Tanzanite Jewel Lv. 4-6. Pretty much the only item that dictates if you win or lose in PVP.
