Hi All,

Just a quick question about Operation setups. Not looking for classes but Tank, Heal and DPS.

Generally how many Tanks, Healer and DPS are taken to 8 and 16 person? lets say the members are in a mixture of HM and Champion gear.

I have been reading an increasing number of posts saying that genrally you only take one Tank, is this the case?

Thanks for any info

I can't speak for 16 mans, but 8 mans are 1 Tank, 2 Healers, 5 DPS typically. Sometimes my healers complain that the healing is too easy, though. You might be able to get away with 1 healer if he's very good.

Thanks. Looks like a lot of our Tanks will be re-gearing and spec'ing

16 Karagga's you will need 2 tanks, as the trash leading to Bonethrasher is not CC'able.

Can't speak for 16 EV, but I'm sure it would be the same. I could see the Pylons becoming a huge problem with 1 tank in 16m.

You can see the trash on 8 man - strange you cant on 16man. On Pylons 8 hardmode we have been using a dps spec'd juggernaut in tank gear to tank one side with no real issues.

If you take 2 tanks to Bonethrasher you will be really hurting your dps because he has no threat table - again if you need tanks for trash get a dps assassin or juggernaut to do the job by switching stance and throwing a little tanking gear on.

Even with annihilation droid hard mode we got away with a dps off tank to increase our dmg output.
