    This is really aimed at the beta testers who spent a significant amount of time in group rvr. Just trying to get a flavour of what kind of group make up does well atm as the rest of us can only speculate, or at best make an educated guess.

    My educated guess would be:

    Arch Mage
    Rune Priest
    Bright Wiz
    Shadow Warrior
    Witch Hunter/White Lion

    I'd say Order is more Ranged than Destruction.
    Needs Kiting!!!!

    I would go

    Arch Mage
    Rune Priest
    Bright Wiz x 2
    Which Hunter

    I liked the 3 healer setup:

    2x AM
    1x RP
    1x SW
    1x WL
    1x IB

    Might seem to lack DPS at first but when you assist armour debuff on the main target with the SW and IB (SW is -990 armour and iirc the IB has a 3k armour debuff) targets drops like flies with the WL as main damage.

    Although I think many setups will work fine it all depends on what you want to do in WAR, scenario's, open RvR(zergs etc) or fgvfg.
    For zerg on zerg ranged probably works better but I found this setup to work really nice for small scale RvR and scenario's mainly as a 3 healer setup is really hard to lock down and you got way more chance to get your high magic up for those nasty situations (assist healing debuff on main target with AM etc).

    1x IB
    1x RP
    1x AM
    1x SW
    1x BW
    1x WL

    for me. Witch Hunters are too lightly armoured for drawn out fights in my opinion. And the Shadow warrior has too much utility to be left out.

    Thats what I was thinking :cheers:
  6. Ardwan

    Ardwan Fledgling Freddie

    BW x4

    The best one I was in had
    1 x Ironbreaker
    1 x Runepriest
    1 x Archmage
    1 x Bright Wizard
    1 x White Lion
    1 x Dwarf Engineer

    It seemed to work well. I definitely think the two healer group is the best bet.

    isn't it a shame those "healer" classes, but with offensive lines too, will always be forced into healing that way?
  9. Enli

    Enli Fledgling Freddie

    Runepriest --> certainty, buffs and good healing
    Archmage --> resist buffs and healing

    Ranged: Bright wiz for lots of dmg
    Shadow Warrior --> for single targets
    Engineer --> for clustered targets and defense

    Tanks: Ironbreaker --> guard and oath buddies
    White Lion is also viable for melee dmg but not w/o a decent tank as IB or swordmaster
  10. Prudil

    Prudil One of Freddy's beloved

    IB - IronBreaker
    SM - SwordMaster
    BW - BrightWizzard
    BW - BrightWizzard
    RP - RunePriest
    AM - ArchMage

    WP is only in one list...
    Does this mean it's not a very useful class in groups?
  12. pikeh

    pikeh Resident Freddy

    all classes have good utility and a rightful place in a group.
  13. Shazzoo

    Shazzoo Fledgling Freddie

    Good as the race quiz told me I should be empire.
    I wouldn't want to disobey the will of the quiz.
  14. pikeh

    pikeh Resident Freddy

    Actually, when you took that quiz, it recorded the result on your PC. When you install WAR, you won't be able to create anything other than empire!

  15. Shazzoo

    Shazzoo Fledgling Freddie

    Haha in that case everybody will be Greenskins or Empire with the occasional Chaos.
    I chose so many dwarf answers (not that they were obvious or anything...) that I'm sure it doesn't have an end image for them so just shows empire.

    Its Mythics new way of realm balance xD
  17. Shazzoo

    Shazzoo Fledgling Freddie

    I can imagine an avid Greenskin player misclicking and having to play a poncey High elf.
    We'd best get the best race we can before the mighty Quiz changes its mind.

    Edit : Sorry this is way off topic :p.
  18. Tallen

    Tallen Fledgling Freddie

    Warrior Priest
    Rune Priest
    Bright Wizard
    White Lion

    Huge DPS potential, great survivability, top healing...what else could you want? :)
  19. Zoldot

    Zoldot Fledgling Freddie

    I thought I didnt chose dwarf answers, I'm going to play destruction (chaos or DE) and I got dwarf 2 times and greenskin once, out of 3 times I took the quiz. (first time I got dwarf):m00:
  20. Nedo

    Nedo Fledgling Freddie

    I was thinking something along those lines if a mixed group is the way to go.

    adoNix Can't get enough of FH

    if i were to play order, this one looks the most appealing to me.

    6 Chickens

    Sum1 had to say it ;)
  24. Shazzoo

    Shazzoo Fledgling Freddie

    Enough angry chickens can be deadly!
    Lon Lon ranch anyone?
  25. Robot

    Robot Fledgling Freddie

    The line up i think vengeance will run with mostly will be:

    Rune Priest
    Rune Priest
    Bright Wizard
    Bright Wizard
    Bright Wizard

    This seemed the more appealing to run with as it means we can do aoe dps or single target dps. The Bright Wizards have some good utility and damage. Everyone in guild seemed to prefer the Rune Priest for healing and the Ironbreaker seemed a very solid tank that has knockbacks etc to try help keep melee classes of the clothies :)
  26. Tallen

    Tallen Fledgling Freddie

    No melee DPS whatsoever would be my main concern. Also i really don't see many groups running without a WP.

    We ran a WP and a IB in a group, had the IB guard and assist the WP and the WP have the IB as defensive target and just set them on anything that moved, works brilliantly.

    Still, thats the great thing, pretty much any set-up can be effective if played to it's strengths :)
  27. Tallen

    Tallen Fledgling Freddie

    Drop the IB for a WP imo :)
  28. Flimgoblin

    Flimgoblin It's my birthday today!

    mental note, marauder assist train required :)
  29. Overdriven

    Overdriven Not a sandwich

    Give destruction group.

    *Wants a RvR group when he has got use to playing*
  30. Xanthian

    Xanthian Fledgling Freddie

    Perfect PBAOE group.

    2x RP
    3x BW
    1x IB

    Loads of aoe, a bit of CC and 2 healers + guard tank.. what more do you need?
    Oh yeah some zerglings to kill ;D
