    Default 5 man Synergy

    Just want to make sure when I farm a party that it won't be lacking the necessities. (Yes cookie-cutter group make-up is what I'm looking for)

    Tank - Any calling although I personally believe Warrior will be best at this in end-game.
    Healer - Cleric once again that's my own opinion.
    CC - Dominator with either support healing or support dps as their secondary. Read below.
    Support - Bard with either points into their healing abilities or dps support souls. Read above.
    DPS - High single target DPS. The highest available.

    So basically you have a Warrior, Cleric, Rogue, Mage, and ??? as your group. Either the Mage or Rogue will be support healing as well as their primary role, the other will be dpsing. So far I'm thinking Rogue is highest single target DPS with Warrior as a close second.

    I have no intention of denying people to group with me if they do not fall into this above setup.

    However do you guys think this is the ideal group setup for 5 mans?

    Really, you don't need a mage with dominator as primary for CC, in most cases it's enough if they just have the soul.
    There are only 10 kinds of people in the world, those who understand binary and those who don't.

    Overkill on support, not enough DPS.

    Tank, Chloromancer, Bard, 2x DPS.

    1 Tank
    1 Healer
    1 DPS w/Support soul
    2 DPS

    Most souls get at least some form of CC, you'll be able to manage without it as long as the Tank can AoE tank well enough, the DPS focuses and the Healer, with help from support, keeps the damage spread under control.
    Dear Africa, you helped me write this...

    I guess it would help if I mentioned that this is for PvE. Sorry for the confusion.

    in that case:

    s/s tank
    healer
    chloro / 0 pt dom
    dps mage / 0 pt dom
    rogue

    if you're feeling wild, put 11 into dom and get aoe silence.

    It's most likely that trying to figure out a static group like you are isn't the most ideal at this time. Group make up will be highly situational and may change from dungeon to dungeon, fight to fight. I'd say at the least, if you are only going to roll with the same 5 people go with 1 of each calling and then a duplicate. Those 5 people can easily collect all the souls and purchase different roles so you can switch to cc/support/whatever as neccessary.

    The versatility you will have is amazing, no reason to think of pigeon holeing everyone, especially before the game is even out.
