This super-sized Queue is as filled with questions and answers as the title is with impenetrable in-jokes.
Nina Katarina asked:
The new Looking For Raid is going to be for 25-man size only. How many tanks, healers and dps slots do you think LFR will require? Most guilds run with 2 tanks, 5-8 healers, the rest dps. Will this end the reign of tank tyranny and make the healers the ones who get instaqueues?
I, for one, welcome our new spirit-stacking overlords.
Well, it's interesting, because people complained that the Raid Finder won't have a 10-man version, but what those people don't understand is that the general distribution of roles among active WoW players is pretty damn close in ratio to the distribution of roles in an ideal 25-man group: two tanks, around six healers, and then the rest DPS. Whereas a 5-man group requires one tank for every one healer and three DPS, a 25-man group requires one tank for every three to four healers and 12 DPS. It's a pretty elegant solution, I think. That said, there's still a whole lot we don't know about the Raid Finder, so it's difficult to predict the impact it'll have on the pet class/spec/role of your choice.
