    Why do you say this? Melee certainly is harder (also warrior mechanics are harder than mage) - But a war+3x mage+priest will likley be able to clear all 5 man content very easy and smoothly.
    5 boxing on Chamber of Aspects, EU (Horde) and Soon on Classic.

    Are you worried about the warrior? If so, just drive him him, the mages and priest are super easy to control. There's a bunch of ways to set it up, the way I first did it was when I pressed one, the warrior charged while the rest tapped 's' to stop moving, gathered aggro and started blasting away, it's super easy.

    Both Tank+3 Mages+Healer & Tank+3 Warriors+Healer are very strong. One advantage of Mage based groups is that you can keep the Mages+Healer back and avoid them getting even splash damage from most things on the Tank. You also can see Aggro switching off the Tank better and have a little more grace time as targets turn & move between the Tank and the DPS group. Instance-wise I mainly 5 boxed & 10 boxed and my group was typically more of a Spell-Cleave group as frankly I found it safer & my default class for most roles were Shaman with Chain Lightnings and Chain Heals & Earth Shield and my favorite Tank was a Consecrating Protection Paladin with maximum reflection damage. Since I had 10 accounts but mainly did groups of 5 I usually had both Warlocks & a Mage to provide summons/stones and ports/water before my sessions to the 5 box group I was working on (I had 5 Warlocks at cap that I used with alts to summon places that ports were not convenient to. Between my 10 accounts through BC and WoTLK I had multiple characters per account at cap and had at least 1 character of every class capped (and 3 plus of most classes) so that I could mix and match and definitely found spell-cleave(ish) great so I don't mean to put spell based groups down or dissuade anyone from them. For mass WPVP I actually wish I was 5boxing or 10boxing a spell based group :-)

    Am I crazy for wanting to run a 5 Pally team to clear dungeons? I know DPS won't be stellar but it seems as if all dungeons including UBRS might be a possibility with the high armor, healing, buffs, etc.. The 5 free lvl 40 mounts also are appealing. What do you all think?

    My brother and I have been playing Paladins since the 70s and play them in every game that has one. Huge fan of Paladins, including in Vanilla WoW, but I wouldn't run a 5man Paladin team for clearing dungeons. I would do at most 2 (1 Tank & 1 Healer or both Healers). The following is a discussion why:

    I had an idea while trying to think of something I haven't done before. Is catform swipe a thing in vanilla? What about a tank with 3 angry little kittens on autofollow spamming swipe(cat)?

    I don't know if viable, but I imagine 1 Feral Tank, 3 Feral DPS, 1 Resto Druid would be a blast. Could you stack 3 Rips???

    I think only bear have swipe in classic. (there is no cat form swipe when looking at the databases)

    3 Rip wouldn't be too useful since you should only be able to get it off against raid bosses basically, with 4 characters dpsing you shouldn't really have time to stack combo points and have the enemy survive during the dot duration of rip.

    I think you are supposed to use Shred with cat form also, which requires being behind the target so not great that you should use positioning.

    I think druid dps is very low compared to other classes. I think they don't scale well with gear. I think in pvp they mostly do a dot up the target and kite while healing tactic.

    I might be wrong ofcourse, I didn't play a druid. I remember they just tried to dot up in pvp then heal and I remember they they wasn't scary to fight, it was just that it was hard to kill them with their kiting so some fights could turn into a stalemate.

    Oh hecc, you're right. I was looking at WotLK. And with Divine Storm being out, back to the drawing board for all-melee AoE groups...
