Ive been doing my hardmode runs with the following:

Sorc healer (myself)

Merc dps

Sniper dps

Jugger tank

The advantage of this composition is:

a) No overlap in classes and therefore all 4 buffs present
b) No melee dps at all, except for the tank, so:
b1) everything that aggros by proximity (e.g. adds that bosses spawn) go for the tank because ranged dps are out of range.
b2) If the boss enrages and one-shots the tank, the remaining 3 ranged can usually finish him off by dancing in / out of LOS.
b3) All ranged dps can be grouped together for very easy aoe healing and its easy to move in / out of boss mechanics
c) Three massive aoe damage abilities to decimate adds - Orbital Bombardment, Force Storm, Death from Above.


Our tank always complains juggernauts have the short end of the stick when it comes to aggro generation and holding.
