    No idea about BFA, wouldn't play that trash, so I only have one active account right now (was praying for beta).

    No idea what the requirements would be, I might have to steal a few Radeon VIIs from the ETH rigs, lol.

    It isn't irrelevant though. 30% More DPS means, you're able to cleave adds and clear significantly faster so you have less time to make mistakes and have to deal with fewer mechanics. Healer mana is the problem, not the mages' mana. Particularly in preraid gear.

    In addition to their lower personal DPS, mages will have to be within Lucifron's curse radius in order to do DPS which means the majority of your raid will be cursed every 15 seconds, requiring your mages to spend at least 3-5 seconds (assuming your macro functions perfectly) out of every 15 decursing.

    How you would manage the magic debuff I'm not sure. Alliance would have an easier time with this since you at least get paladins along with priests for dispelling but even so, macroing magic dispels will still be very time consuming without multiple priests in each group, which you won't have. Even with 8 priests, which is still too many, it would take each priest 7.5+ seconds to dispel their entire party. Macros are never 100% effective so you will inevitably see impending doom detonations on each cast which will probably result in deaths.

    Again, these are just the issues with one of the simplest bosses in MC. Some of the other encounters are much more micro intensive and require CC, interrupts and movement on several targets all to be microd at the same time while tanking and healing 40 characters. Particularly without /focus, I just don't think this will be possible for a single person to manage. Interrupting or CCing the 4 healers on Majordomo alone would be a challenge to box even if that was your only job.

    Something else to consider is the sheer amount of time it would take each week to farm the necessary consumables for 40 characters. I don't think there are enough hours in the day.

    you can try the setup with trial accounts (though you'll need 5 new bnet accounts) and while classic is a bit lighter than bfa it's about the same code client side (just fewer/simpler textures etc so less GPU load and less memory used)

    Good point with the trial accounts, thanks! I'll give it a few test runs and cry when it fails, lol

    Trust me, I know I'm asking for one massive headache to try this.

    This is also why I'm trying my hardest to find the perfect comp, because just the time alone to level 8 groups to 60 is insane. The LAST thing I want to do is spend all of that time, farm all the gear and mats, enter MC and then learn I messed up bringing a few of the wrong classes and then have to level yet another group to 60.

    But googling perfect MC comps is impossible, since everyone says "bring any 40 people" and people who had their rosters back in vanilla were not building the perfect comp, instead trying to just find the 40-60 people required.

    Aaaaand I want to go mage/ranged heavy to remove a lot of the work from things like Geddon and whatnot. I know warriors do more DPS so it's a shorter fight, just wondering if it'll be harder to control?

    So it's a weird situation to be in, my 40 man will have a 100% attendance, of course, cause it's me! But choosing that is not easy and that's the biggest time waste if I mess up by even a few chars =/
