The game doesn't work like that it depends on player's skill, gear, rank, and renown rank. Each class has the ability to beat another class. However, everyone plays their classes differently. So you may beat one AM player and then get owned by another AM player. Matching or being under geared or using BiS gear does not guarantee you will "bury" them.

I think SH has a chance.

1v1ing a good healer is literally impossible on classes without heal debuff. WH/WE can pose a credible threat to most since they can debuff healing output to 25% by themselves and have some nice burst and kd.

SH would really be your only bet, but I don't see it happening without m2. However if you are solo, and happen to be talking about an AM dealing with healing his group and has other enemies to worry about instead of just 1v1 then SH should be fine.

Choppa could do it if he catches the AM off-guard, despite being one of the "worst" mdps, they still pump out damage and have a spammable Incoming Heal Debuff and a Spec'd Outgoing Heal Debuff. Both of which are Curse-type that the AM cannot cleanse by themselves.

Much lower chance of success if the AM sees you coming from a mile away, prepare to be dotted, snared, and lifetapped as they giggle elvishly at you from afar.

Cleansing Wind 3 will help a will a good HoT pot. Morale gain equipment on a SH will get you to M2 quicker also to help...or Strength if Numbas.

If you don't have CW at all, your only chance to is run away as quickly as possible...against a decent AM.

Choppa and SH can especially if you start before your combo.
With your choppa try to harass in melee AM as fast as possible, with SH hide yourself a bit so AM can't start to dot you in first seconds

SH has the best chances but also Black Orc specialized in Tree Hit Combo may kill you actually by one attack before you can do anything. You get few hits for 1000 damage each in 3 seconds, at least that was before. I'm not sure if anything has changed

Solo AM are not common these days, but I killed some with my SH while solo roaming too.
Beside the heal debuff, be sure to silence the AM before your burst.
DPS AM are easier targets, because they generally don't stack armor (like a healer), but intelligence.
