First.. pally tanks ftw, assuming they are moderately competent. Two pally tanks on Eonar-A are the ONLY tanks I literally cannot pull agro from if I try (Doomkin). (I don't pull agro, but they asked me to try. I have a threat meter and a modicum of common sense.)Second.. Frequently off spec or odd groups have been my favorite runs. Heroic Shattered Halls with a Pally tank, Doomkin, Elemental and Resto Shammies, and Arcane mage was the fastest I've ever been through the instance, heroic or not, no deaths whatever. Regular Shadow Labs with a Pally tank, Doomkin, two Shadow and one Holy Priest, same thing. If you can't find a way to creatively use the skill set you have, don't PUG. **Disclaimer** Nothing can fix stupid.

Mate.. they key word is pally tank. You can be successful with a mediocre pally tank.. but lets see you do that with a mediocre warrior tank and without someone that can give u salv.

I have to agree. The only thing that made your 'imbalanced' groups work is the pally tank. They remove the need for CC, and allow you to take just about any class combination under the sun (in theory, I recently did H-SH with a tankadin, myself (healadin), feral druid (dps), enh shammy and fury warr. The first boss is *not* melee friendly, regardless of the gear of the group. The shammy and warr died, the pally had moved out and had to basically just Hammer of Wrath each cooldown, and the druid went into bear form to do some moderate dps and have the armor and HP to survive the WW + SBolts.In any case, yep, tankadins make life great for 5 mans.
