Our MT group is fairly close...

Me (tank)
Feral Drood (OT)
Shammy (Grace o'Air!)

Fun topic

Kinda working on my guild getting attuned right now for Kara, when we are this is how our raid group is going to look like

Group 1
Prot Paladin - MT
Elemental Shaman
Shadow Priest (trying to recruit one)
Holy Paladin
Warlock

Group 2
Feral Druid - OT
Holy Priest
Rogue
Rogue
BM Hunter

We have no warriors in our guild so, no commanding shout and thunder claps.

I just think that having a MT Paladin in a melee group is kinda backwards. My whole guild believe we should be building our groups around having a Paladin Tank, not around a War tank groups and just sticking a Paladin in there. I think having a Shadow Priest and Tankadin really mesh well together, just don't have any right now =(

Worth mentioning that you can't have windfury and a +42 spell damage oil on your weapon

I changed up my tank group last night, it's good being the raid leader ;)

Tank Group
Prot Paladin - Me
Restoration Shaman - Dropped Wrath of Air
Shadow Priest
Warlock
Mage

The real synergy was the Shadow Priest and Resto Shaman... my threat was consistently about 600-700 TPS on trash, it was a smooth run.

I did have to keep yelling at my shaman to keep Wrath of Air down.

I think I prefer Wrath of Air to Windfury now.

Wrath of Air also lets you put a wizard oil on :P

Why the mage? I'd probably sub a resto druid in for him to get the tree aura, or at least a holy paladin so I can run ret aura and get improved devo...

We don't have a Holy Paladin yet, and yeah I could have probably moved the Druid over, I think I did actually so swap the Mage for a druid now that I think about it.

Keep in mind this is ten man - Karazhan group design can be a struggle.

We usually run with two warriors including myself, one DPS one Off-Tank

Oh, Karazhan! Sorry I've been in 25-man mode, didn't realize this was a 10-man group. Little less flexibility with that.
