I've been a raid leader on many operations. Vanguards make great tanks, but as DPS, sorry...they're at the back of the line.

You called them mid-range, but they have to be in melee range to be effective. RDPS is preferred by most raid leaders, and if you *must* run with MDPS, a Marauder is usually going to be picked over a Vanguard. I would take an Assassin over a Vanguard as well for their ability to off-tank in a pinch and more utility.

Of course everything depends on what kind of guild you're in, who you're pals with, and a lot of other factors. However, putting together the "ideal" raid group based on pure numbers alone, I think most would agree that Vanguard DPS don't have much to offer that can't be done better by other classes.
