    Default Group Composition

    Hello everyone,
    I am thinking about returning to WoW and firing up a 5 box team. I have been doing some reading here about group compositions and it seems a bit overwhelming. I have done extensive boxing in Everquest, so ISBoxer setups don't scare me. What group composition do people recommend? Since it takes awhile to level and gear, I want to try and get the choice correct at the start.

    Things to note:
    1) I have no interest in boxing in PvP. Any PvP I will do will be solo queued.
    2) I mainly want to do dungeons and doubtful I will also have time to raid in a guild.
    3) In the past, I have played many different classes and can't say that there are any that I do not like.
    4) I am open to any combinations.

    I have seen that there are some people who like 5 x one class and others that run 4 x and 1 healer and others who run 1 tank, 3dps, and 1 healer. Any recommendations on what to start with for the long haul?

    Thanks!

    So far, in this expansion, the people who are pushing the highest keys in Mythic+ dungeons all seem to, currently, be using a mixed-class team with proper roles and ranged DPS.

    Cool, any suggestions on a solid mixed group? Or perhaps a streamer that multiboxes to get some ideas from?

    Thanks!

    Serscruffington streams fairly consistantly and does both 5 man mythic+ runs as well as 10-box raiding on his own:

    As far as comps...

    If you're just looking for straight up performance, I think BM hunter is still the go-to DPS class since all of their DPS is doable on the move. Ranged in general have an easier time due to more free positioning.

    Tanks I feel like give quite a few options and it's more or less down to preference. Most common ones would probably be Blood DK and Prot Paladin, although I don't see why you could not go for a Warrior, Brewmaster Monk or even a Bear Druid if you wanted to.

    Healers I can't really comment on that much since I've only tried a few specs this expansion.

    Thanks Wubsie! I watched serscruffington some today and picked his brain a bit. He convinced me that Hunters were indeed the way to go. I think I might go the Paladin route for the tank. Serscruffington runs a monk, but he had also not used any other healers. He is in the process of leveling a Shaman. Does anyone have any input on the healer?

    I'm pretty sure I saw M+6 posts from 5 hunters (or was it 4 hunters 1 healer? but no tank I'm sure)

    Not to lessen the achievements of others who are trying to push Mythics with same-class teams, but a +6 key does not qualify as "the highest keys" when you have mixed-class teams pushing +9/10/11. For multiboxers, there's a large ramp up in difficulty around those key levels, and an additional affix at level 10.

    Blood DK / 3x BM hunter / Healer of choice is a very strong option. Druid is strong but I couldn't get the heals to land to my liking, Shaman is a solid spammable healer, Monk is what I have been using in the past for the 5% melee damage bonus, but I am leaning towards trying out a Priest and seeing where that goes.

    Resto Shaman / 4x BM hunter is extremely potent, but due to not having a true tank - you are limited on some fight mechanics that require one for positioning.

    DH tank / 4x Boomkin - this is one I always try to get to work this expansion, and really want to but end up shelving it after a week or two and going back to the previous 2 options. 8.2 just buffed DH tanking so it may be back on the table again.
    Biggest weakness is low burst AoE and mobility. Otherwise it also works as a PvP viable group as well.

    I thought Blood dk had heavy nerfs.. Warrior tank feels good atm though.

    You may be right, raider io is showing them taking quite a bit of a dip in representation.
    Warrior seems like it's definitely #1 right now, and has been since their buffs several months ago.
