    Default Best single class teams?

    Back when I originally played in 2008 single class teams of all Shamans etc were all the rage but now it seems like everyone is running tank/heal/dps comps. Is this just due to the improvement in multiboxing software, the difficulty of classic content, or something else?

    The simplicity of single class teams really appeals to me especially for pvp. I've seen some videos of Dwon running 5 Paladins but I'm wondering what other comps could be viable for various content. I figure I'm probably limited to hybrid classes although Warlocks/Hunters could be somewhat viable.

    5 Paladins: Seems great in pvp and able to clear end game dungeons
    5 Druids: Managing different forms seems like it would be a massive pain across different clients or maybe keeping 1 bear and other 4 some balance hybrid for damage/heals. Doubt anything other than balance would work in PVP.
    5 Shamans: Seems like it would be great in PvP but not sure how well they could handle PVE content. Elemental probably going to have massive mana issues but would 5 Enhancement work for single target DPS?
    5 Priests: Might be able to Holy AOE or Shadow to 60 but can't imagine either would fare well in dungeons. Could be amusing in PVP with mind flay tracking targets for you.

    Anyone got any experience with these that can provide some insight? I don't doubt any of them can get to 60 but personally I feel like it would be a waste if they can't at least handle the end game dungeons to some extent to be able to gear up.
    2019 (40 - Priest/Mage/Mage/Mage/Mage) (16 - 5x Druid)
    2008 (60 - 2x Paladin 3x Mage) (64 - Moonkins) (70 - Shamans)

    Hunters and Warlocks will also both probably work.

    I'm up to level 50 on my all hunter team (BM). Solo dungeons up to Maraudon though Mara was tiresome. Heading to ST soon. I really enjoy it the simplicity.

    5 priests wont work the rest is ok for dungeon content... in pvp everything works

    ele shamans have no mana issues in 5/10 man content thats rather a problem on raid encounters 1min+fights (playing one myself atm)...but yeah you have to reg a lot inbetween fights, I cant wait for the new rank of conjured water comming with dire maul.

    5 hunters with good pets are quite viable so far - sending in my pets something with screech (I have greater fleshrippers) first and they have pleeeeeenty of AOE threat and tankiness - as long as they are within 3 levels of the target I never pull Afro off of any bosses or packs.

    The only weak spot is resizing but I have engineering on them as well so I get goblin jumper cables (and soon XL cables for more reliability) which can let me recover if one of the team dies.

    my next single class team will be druids. I ran a paladin team for a bit but they were quite frustrating due to mana issues.

    I kinda like the idea of 3-5 Hunters with 0-2 Druids (being able to flex the Druid numbers based on content/goals). I am a little leery of going more than 2 Druids as I find melee groups (like 3 Druid Cats or Bears for DPS) harder than ranged and Oomkin was such a meme so not sure how viable Druid are for DPS roles...

    Do you plan to focus the 5 Druids on clearing dungeons and if yes what specs/roles do you plan to run them with? I sorta assume you could/would have a Bear Tank & a Healer so mainly curious how you plan to do DPS on the remaining 3 Druids (Boomkin, caster, cat, bear, ?)... My first pass when I considered a 5 Druid team was to do at least 1 as a Boomkin but maybe keep the others as Heart of the Wild (at least at cap to be flexible for both PVE & wPVP) and curious what others think...

    Generally I would think that teams with many Druids and/or many Paladins really need a sponsor Mage who can make lots of free Water to stock up on before any extended sessions. It would make more sense to me to do either of them as a 2nd or later team (assuming my first team (or any previous team) resulted in having a Mage at cap).

    When I’ve done druids in retail I just ran as all tanks, but classic has far fewer options to help them do decent DPS, so I might mix it up with cats. For whatever reason I’ve always found melee easy to box, even mixed groups. I have no idea how this will work out, but that’s part of the fun

    I honestly think boomkin would be better than cats.
