I was wondering what the best 5 man pvp group would be and why? it would look something like this. 1 Shadowpriest 2 Paladins 2 Warriors I thought it could go something like this. The shadowpriest could remove magic buffs such as other priests shields and I think AP from mages, as well as shield, fear, silence, and add some extra damage in there. The Pally's could heal and keep the warriors up and moving. The warriors could bash the face in of anything in their way as well as keep everything off of the healers. What do you guys think?
For world PvP or BGs?
I'm going to assume World PvP, in which case the combinations are endless. While yours seems good, you're missing curse removal, any type of long term silence (sheep, sap, seduce), and any decent AOE. Thus, a Mage, who can do all three, would be useful too, I'd say instead of a Warrior.
Personally, I don't like paladins the least bit....
I would also think that any 5-man group could handle just about anything...
Mine would be
1. Warrior 2. Shadow Priest 3. Mage 4. Shaman 5. Hunter.... For traps...
Paladin - heals/aura/stun Priest - heals/fear Warlock - CC / damage Mage - CC / damage Warrior
(A warlock can CC two people at once with succubus -- though they share the same diminishing returns) Warlock -- fear+seduce, damage Warlock -- fear+spell lock, damage Mage -- melee cc, damage Shadowpriest -- dots, minor heal (vampiric embrace), single-target damage Priest -- healing and buffing
That would really only be ideal for BG's tho.
For horde it will be 1.Warrior-Tanking 2.Rogue-Dps 3.Mage-Caster 4.Shaman-Totem/Heal 5.Druid or Priest-Heal

Accept that in PvP you cant really tank people, because they arent stupid like NPCs, and go for the weaker valuable dps classes.
Get a DPS warrior and not a tank.
I'd have a group of rogues ;)
Blade Flurry hooo!
