One tank, 2 DPS of any variety, one healer.

The tank's job is to hold the strongest mob around, and anything else he can if possible.

The DPS should be killing the weakest thing free leading up to the one being tanked by the mob. DPS can easily offtank, regardless of their class, while they burn down the weaker mobs.

As a tank, it just isn't feasible to hold aggro on everything here. Just think about it. When you're soloing you sometimes fight groups of 3-5 mobs. Same principle here.

It's okay for some things to be free, just so long as the strongest thing around is being tanked. Kill those weaker/free things, and just make sure they're not on the healer very long.
Dual Targeting, any AAA MMO released today should have this included. Don't let your next one release without it.
So what exactly is Dual Targeting? You have 2 targets available at all times, one offensive and one defensive. That's it, it's that simple.
