    Default Best trio based around pally tank

    Hey there! I have been interested in starting a three box but i want the main tank to be a pally. So really what i am looking for here is what two classes wil complement the pally and each other the best?. I am aiming for the three boxlvling fairly quickly to t8 so t8 content is the goal. Also i am on a pvp server so i dont incredibly care about be a pvp powerhouse but i also dont want to get kicked around by solo guys because one of the three box is weak or we have no survivabilty.
    Tank-Pally
    Healer-?
    dps/utility-?
    Thanks ahead of time for any input and help

    pally/ templar/ coercer imo. at least for pve

    amends with hate pass from coercer = never loose agro.
    templar has best buffs = almost no healing required

    might all change with upcoming hate pass changes though

    Chauser - Troub
    Enoax - Inquis
    Otoru - Pally
    Iniigo - Brig
    Charmy - Illy
    Bigrock - Channeler

    Templar is pretty much a no-brainer. The 3rd is a little up in the air. You could go coercer, but the main benefit of that would be mana regen, not hate transfer, as a paladin with amends on any dps or utility class won't lose aggro to that person, and he certainly won't lose it to a templar. Alternatively, swashbuckler and wizard are good options for the 3rd spot, options that will give you more dps but no mana regen.

    Any mage with dispersion/displacement is like infinite power

    I three box and have about 10 lvl 80s and the rest in their 70s. (I have one locked at 52 and one at 62 for mentoring purposes)

    Best combo was my swash/dirge/warden.
    *travel = had 3 evacs and druid ports, plus bard speed and swash group invis
    *dps = warden was spec'd for melee and this group killed FAST
    *heals = warden did perfectly fine and swash had defensive gear and still had 2x the dps as the others

    I also played a pal/warlock/fury.
    *travel = druid/sorceror ports and fury group invis
    *dps = hate was stuck on pal from amending the lock, group did almost as good as the one above.
    *heals = pal was spec'd PURELY for tanking and rarely dropped beneath 80 before the fury would have to heal

    working on:

    zerker/conjuror/templar - templar's do best healing plate tanks that take lots of hits (fires off reactives) and the conj is easy to dps with

    bruiser/assassin/defiler - wards aren't wasted when the bruiser is avoiding, assassin has hate transfer, so far so good

    I have a ranged group that is tricky to do: necromancer/troubadour/coercer. Haven't really had luck but I'm slowly getting the skill to play this one. Have to learn somehow.

    tbh i would swap that to templar/illy/pally. the buffs the pally gets from an illy far outstrip the buffs a pally gets from a coercer, and with TC you can rock the dps on the paladin or rock the heals on the temp. hell, illy on AF with a paladin is pretty uber even then. on aoe fights i can cast illy dmg reactive pre fight and just que my AEs and dmg reactive whenever they get cast, keep playing the pally, and still mantain 80% of my pallies dps while putting out another 30-50% more than i would with the illy just on AF. and with templar reactives + auto attack and TC on the pally you would hardly have to touch the templar at all if ever, other than to recast reactives or toss and occasional super heal up. personal prefrence though i would go with a mystic. huge ass wards + bolster, 3k+ auto attack dps, and mystic proc buff + AP casting recast and recovery is > templars versions imo, and you would have to play the mystic even less

    I don't have a Pally, but as a combo I run a Zerker/Templar/Dirge.
