    absolute best group composition for a tank?

    To maximize health, armor, survivability, threat generation. All of the above. My thoughts..

    You the tank
    Paladin - Improved Devotion Aura
    Warlock - Improved Blood pact
    Fury warrior - Improved Commanding shout
    Shaman - Improved Windfury totem

    Is this the best group setup? Probably not. I'm sure there are other classes with other abilities that could help out the tank potentially even more. I'm curious how other raids setup their tanking groups to maximize performance.

    The problem with that is if all of those buffs aren't necessary for the tank, you're actually gimping the rest of those classes by not giving them much more ideal DPS groups. And potentially even more people, since some of those are key "synergy classes" that really buff other people in the raid.

    Groups like that may be useful for undergeared tanks or going into new content that hits extraordinarily hard, etc.

    I'd replace the Fury warrior with a Restoration druid in Tree of Life form for maximal benefit.

    Of course, as Xav said, just because this particular group would benefit the main tank the most does not mean that it's the best for the raid group as a whole. As long as threat is not an issue, I'd let the melee DPS group have the shaman as well. The last spot would normally be reserved for the OT.

    Shaman - Improved Windfury totem
    For aggro i prefere WF totem but , for max avoidance and max survivability i take Dext Totem

    Fury Warrior replace by Druid .

    You the tank

    Feral druid (5% crit)
    Shammy (WF/STR)

    Warlock (imp BP)
    Pally (Devotion)

    best setup that revolves around 1 tank. you get the best of both worlds; threat gen and effective health

    Yeah, I realize that this question is vastly dependent on the encounter, but I always find it fun to see what people consider to be the 'best tank group' and agreed. Resto tree druid is a near must.

    just having a windfury totem up puts me at about 1400 sustained tps with spikes to 1800+. not really ideal in a 25 man since there is typically multiple tanks that all want the lock buff.
