I am returning to EQ after a long hiatus and plan to 6 box. I used to 4 box, and I'd like to know what classes to box. The kicker is I feel I'm really good playing a tank, so I can position the mob for auto attack on melee with very, very little effort. Meaning, everyone recommends setting up more casters so you can just do macros. I don't feel I need to do that based on positioning. I'd also like to have one class per armor type if possible (I hate seeing gear rot). So, here is what I plan on having: Tank - SK / War. Probably SK since I've never played one Support - Bard - he will just be twisting songs. I've never played, no clue how, so whatever I can do for autopilot on him is what I will do. 2 DPS - monk, zerker, or bst for one, mag / wizard for other From here I have a couple slots left. I need a healer, and I need another DPS. What I don't have is a slower, so, a shaman could provide the functionality of both heals and slows. I've done this in the past and it worked ok, but I think I had a cleric merc back then, I don't remember. So, I sort of need to know if a monk, zerker, or bst can be easily played with very, very minimal "clicking". Positioning is easy, so basically looking for best auto attack DPS. That being said, if auto attack DPS is abysmal, then I can play one of the melee dps as my "main" probably and set up macros for the SK to keep agro. One other thing. Will a bard get haste to max potential without haste spells? If I use a cleric instead of a shaman, then I won't have haste. Edit - I think what I'll use is Bard, SK, Beastlord, zerker, wizard, and cleric. BST fills the shaman role good enough for what I plan on doing (basically, old school raid content along with normal leveling).
