Best group setup

Postby Marker » Fri Jun 06, 2008 3:45 am

What is the best 5 man setup for heriocs? Considering your wellgeared for the instance and can comfortably breeze through it, so survivability is not an issue. I'm thinking of the best setup for speedy HC clearings. Guess there's some differences depending on wether the isntance is caster or melee heavy + other minor differences, but throw those on the boat and just go for a general "Optimal 5 man speedrun setup".

Personally I've had really good experience with the 3 setups below:

Pallytank
Ele shammy
Boomkin
Mage
Healer

Pallytank
enh shammy
DPS warrior
Rogue
Healer

Pallytank
SPriest
Lock
Lock
Healer

As for healer, I haven't seen much of a difference really, as long as they can keep the group up and can do so without drinking (much).

I read through 5 pages of search results to see if there was any other threads on this, but I couldnt find anything, so I'm sorry if I'm beating a dead horse here.

I've done every heroic in the game outside of MrT with the same group setup.

Myself (Tankadin)
sPriest
Arms Warrior
Enh Shaman
Holy Priest

All of us in Kara/badge gear. Only thing I ever had a problem with was either Mana Tombs or Crypts, can't remember which one. In MrT, I replaced the shaman with a mage. EZmode.

Is there any of the healing classes that bring anything to the table that increase DPS significantly?

From what I'm seeing it's all about maximising DPS, since Tanking and Healing in my case normally have been adequate for the DPS to go more or less balls to the wall anyways, and should they draw aggro it normally dies so quickly afterwards they dont ge too many hits. But it's a HoJ, BoP and Taunting frenzy somtimes, thats for sure. So some setups allows for fast clearing from AoEing several groups simultaniously while other has added singletarget DPS that downs bosses and tougher mobs in notime.

resto shaman is always the best choice hands down ALWAYS no dispute.

WRath of air more threat.
bloodlust
they're dps is better than holy paladin or even a resto druid

Even if you have an elemetnal shaman a resto shaman is still better for extra bloodlust totems and such.

And every group needs a shadowpriest to be the most efficient.

A lot of it depends on the instance. If I'm running Shattered Halls, give me a mage and 2 locks for my DPS. If I'm running Mana Tombs, give me an enhancement shaman, a warrior, and a rogue. Really 5 mans are so easy in every case as long as you have good players, it doesn't even matter what classes you bring.

i donly agree with you about shattered hallz, it really doesn't matter what you bring but things do go faster with certain stuff.

Again I clear all my heroics in 20-40 minutes.

And a resto shaman is always the best choice for healers.

21 minute h spens run:

Tankadin
Retadin
Lock
Spriest
Restosham

41 minute h shalls
Tankadin
Lock
Lock
Spriest
Restosham

I strongly recomend bringing a restosham as a healer for heroics. THey can just manatide you before pulls so no drinkey :). Running with a ret-adin is awesome too. It greatly ups your threat. Lock is self explanitory lolseed + 4-5 mobs to hit = 2kdps.

Best Group I've run with:

Me (Tankadin)
Warlock
Warlock
Warlock
Resto Druid

Heroic SP in 16 minutes, Heroic Mech in 22 Minutes...

It's unbelieveable how fast you can farm with 3 seeds going off at the same time, everytime.

That was cheating. But I did hRamparts once with three magi so I can't say too much. :P

Bloodlust is horde equivalent of heroism.

In most cases I would agree with you but not for MgT. In MgT, IME, if you don't have enough CC you aren't going past the third boss.

That's insane. A sixteen minute Slave Pens run? Are you sure it was on heroic?!? ;) Just teasing. But honestly, that's amazing.

My best runs are always with the people I know. It's much easier to communicate when you're used to dealing with each other. So for me, the best group always involves, me tanking, a rogue, an enhance shammy, a mage and a random healer.
