    I assume this is the video you mean? It doesn't look like a very good farm for a level 60 boxing group.


    Edit: Also an interview with him:

    wouldnt fire/frost be a better aoe spec since blastwave/arcane explosion can shatter? or can only 1 mage benefit from it until frostnova would break immediately

    Shatter breaks but you can always rotate nova with arcane explosion. Works at that particular time so if you got 4x mage casting arcane explosion at frozen target it will crit all 4 at same time if cast at same time.

    Originally I was going with a 2 pally 3 mage line up but this post has me thinking that having the pally consencrate and heal himself while 4 mages dps you might never need a dedicated healer. While I think for trash this would be great I wonder if you can do bosses without dedicated healer

    Doesn't work. If you're using the paladin as a tank the mobs in every end-game instance have abilities that stun, knockback or silence. You can't tank and heal at the same time.

    All DPS teams might work at lower levels but once you get to 55+ and start doing the harder dungeons like LBRS, Scholo and DM where some of the bosses do a lot of damage and have 30,000+ health you can't burst them down in preraid gear, will 2 shot your mages and are immune to CC. Not to mention bosses that summon adds or other mechanics that prevent you from just bursting one target.

    I wouldn't go so far as to say it's impossible but you'd need gear beyond what you can obtain from the dungeon you're trying to grind and there's no real benefit to it as far as I can see. If you want to do an all DPS team go hunters or warlocks and just use your pets to tank.

    As far as Xzin saying he cleared all dungeon content with 4 mages and a priest it might be possible if overgeared the content with raid or PvP gear. Only videos I ever saw him post was one farming SM and a couple of random PvP videos.

    Cone of cold is a 50% slow for 8 seconds with a 10 second cooldown. I would think it'd be more effective to just cycle CoC while spamming arcane explosion and kiting. Might take a bit of practice and you'd probably have to switch between windows to make sure it was aimed properly. You wouldn't even really need to use nova unless some of the mobs resist your CoC or to create a bit of distance.

    Again, not really worth the effort over just having a decent tank, healer and 3 mage group if your goal is to farm dungeons IMO.
