A.)100 war, 98 Bard, 80 cleric, 90 mage, 85 mage , 75 rogue ( my original character for 6 years in the beginning). Anything wrong with this group ? Alternatively, I could swap one of the mages for 85 zerker I have never played.
B.)That grp = 100 war,98 bard, 84 cleric, 85 mage, 75 Rogue, and 85 zerker.

The above groups are only to farm stuff- and get alittle exp on off hours. So is it A or B

Note My main grp not much ahead of these guys but they are all over 110 -

Is this a question? Suggestion?

Your posts title doesn't give anything (I edited it for you), and the contents don't really either :p are you asking which would be better? For what? What are you trying to farm?

You appear to have your bases covered, tank, heal, cc - should strong consider getting everyone caught up to each other. Hard to "farm" with such disparity.

Either of them are fine - but you should likely focus on getting them xp > farming

A) if you choose this one, I'd probably grab another mage and drop the rogue (get the alliance dps and another mage dps which is pretty nice already, but more pets/swarms = more dps for all of them)
B) I actually prefer this one because I favor Melee and you could either enjoy the mage for COTH and his good dps as a solo caster OR add a monk for the Master's Aura since you CC is the bard... ripostes and extra defense is yummy too :)

Just my two [red] cents.

Unfortunately no alliance at this level range.

If your moving around from zone to zone, I would select the duo mage group. The berserker brings no utility to a farming group.
zerkers once they have breather - basically need 0 downtime or maint, mages for "farming" absolutely not the case in my experience - but either are def viable

For the mages there is a soecific lua available to gain mana, once there are low on mana.
You may want to look for the Lua „MM“. It will suspend your pet and cast „Monster Summoning“ and use a clicky to destroy it, gaining mana in the process.
You need to farm the clickyStaff of elemental Mastery:Earth or alike with „Reclaim Energy“, and upgrade The AA related to the amount of mana gained back in the process.

Sorry I am late to the party. Using the general / EQ blueprint of:

1) Tank
2) Healer
3) CC
4) DPS
5) DPS
6) Utility / aDPS

Both groups are viable. If you are looking to tweak the group a bit, you might consider Beastman’s suggestion and add a beastlord. Personally, I have a group with mage x2 and a beastlord, and others might argue that bard, melee x2 and beast lord is more optimal. Either way, perhaps consider swapping a beastlord into either group and, my personal thought is that, you won’t go wrong. One last thing, as others have said here and in many other threads, please do not AFK farm. It draws attention to not only you but also the whole community.

Be well. Happy gaming.
