    Default The perfect group?

    Now I've been in a lot of groups. From the typical healer-tank-4dps, to the more defensive heavy 2 healers-tank-crowd control-2dps, to the unusual swashy-inq-coercer combo (that worked amazingly well lol), but what do YOU like in a group.

    As a coercer, I hate avoidance tanks!!! My best spells are all reactive, meaning the tank has to get hit for me to do damage. So I like tanks with low avoidance, as long as they aren't too squishy lol! As for classes with me, it depends if I'm charming or not. When charming, I prefer mages with me, because then I don't have to worry so much about them complaining about not getting my dps buffs. When not charming, give me as many melee dps as you can cram into the group! Especially ones that can't buff their own dps.

    As a pally, I have no preference on healers, tho druids do tend to run OOP faster, especially those dpsin furies! For dps, I can handle almost anything a DPS can throw up, if i have a melee dps for amends, preferably one without their own hate transfer. Brigands are by far my favorite! For some reason, I've found that amends on a wizard tends to suck because they take so long to get going on the dps that the scouts can pull before they start landing the good stuff. Warlocks are ok because they do alot more AE, so I can grab agro on the whole encounter instead of just the one target.

    Meh... I dunno, just curious what other people do and don't like within a group.

    Any group that i am in is defanitly the perfect group

    Jk

    As an inquisitor i like to have a swashy in my groups for great power regen with my chilling inquest spell line. so here is a nice group imo (keep in mind i am an inquisitor so this group is probably going to be built around me)


    Berzerker (somewhat good dps, group buff str and the chance to proc haste/dps mod. probably more helpful stuff but not going that far into it.)

    Inquisitor (well beside this being ME...Inquisitors can heal very well and have a 30% DPS mod buff, group divine proc, ~50% group haste+77int+about 8-9% faster recast - inq is stifled. and they have kinda nice dps for a healer. just need a nice 2 hander and some str/dpsmod/haste)

    Swashbucklar (great DPS, group stelth, tracking, evac, procs chilling inquest a lot (CI is the inq's mana drain), can also use aggro transfer on the zerker. and they get to use pimp hats)

    Coercer (all the good stuff they bring like lots of mana regen and some good CC abilities. Also can bring the melee DPS in group up to 100% dps mod 30%inq+74%(?)coe will make the melees happy)

    Assassin (nice single target DPS for those harder named fights... can put apply poison on the zerker to help up dps. not sure if swash and assassin aggro xfer stack but can put his xfer on the mt.)

    last spot would really depend on what the group is hunting. Could put a defiler or druid in if the extra heals are needed or add a bard or another dps class. even a bruiser or monk could go well in this group. if shit hits the fan FD is always nice to have


    I don't really like grouping with mages. nothing against them but if they pull aggro they get their face punched in quicker than a melee class. and my buffs help scout/fighter (sometimes summoner) more.

    But i would take any classes from my guild over some random app2 using noob spaming 60-69 chat.

    ok im done ...

    For a typical xp group I personally can't stand 2 healers as you really don't need a second healer for xp its just extra DPS lost that in turn means less xp!

    I personally like brawlers for groups because they can tank heroic stuff well and do a lot of DPS so my perfect group for xp would probably be.

    Brawler- for the extra DPS while being able to tank
    Fury- Generally the groups I am in require very little healing so going with a DPS healer here
    Assassin- Me of course! but can proc the tank and puts out good DPS
    Brigand- Debuffs etc
    Dirge- PR and DPS buffs / Procs
    Random Caster for procs / DPS
    I will be making a return for the Time Locked Servers! Fear Me.

    Meh... single group stuff is pretty much anything goes..save nizara.

    Plate tank (as long as the player behind the toon isn't a complete douche)

    Healer of any archtype (this player can't be a douche if the tank is wearing some funky equiptment)

    <insert at least 1 or 2 other here>

    I get a chuckle everytime someone says they're looking for a 2nd healer for HoF or something in 60-69... its really not needed if members of the group are competent at their class.

    I've done whole naked group HoF before...and even in my old guild a fury needed a quest update in HoF, so our zerker and a swash (coercer too maybe) took her in but made her promise not to heal the whole time...and nobody died. This is all after they nerfed that debuff the mobs use in there though.

    Yeah, HOF is a total joke now. I remember when it used to be hard. I also remember going in drunk as a skunk (but don't remember leaving...) and when I logged in the next morning, I was wearing nothing but a back up BP and a sword.

    You have to have a coercer for a zillion reasons, not least being that damage boost does more to group dps than haste. And all you need to find is that one retarded mage mob and the charm dps just gets completely ugly.
