    What 4 professions would you pick for a dungeon?

    As the title states what professions would you prefer to have in a dungeon? I'm wondering because I want to pick a class thats in demend. Just wondering if theres a class with more CC than another? or maybe group heals. I've played many hours on the beta events but I havn't really compared professions to each other and with the 25th so close, I want to make sure i pick the right profession off the bat. I really love warriors but I have no idea if someone would pick a thief or something else over me for a last spot in a group.

    Guardian, Elementalist, Necromancer and Warrior.

    They're pretty decisive/balance of power type classes. The others do okay-to-great. Those 4 wreck though.

    To quote Ghostwalker, this really is a case of bringing the player and not the class (profession)

    I don't think it matters due to the holy trinity is gone, of course there will be classes that may or may not have better group utility. I wish I could give you an example of what warriors can bring , but leveled only to lvl3 so far and I have avoided reading to much due to me wanting to explore everything myself.
    What I do know is that you can get some group buffs from passives.

    Guardian, Ele and Warrior are pretty (too) much awesome for dungeons.

    I would take any 4 professions as long as the players knew how to play their role. I did XAC with 5 warriors and went amazingly well.... so I could care less which professions were in the run.

    Yeah i would think a Ele, and Gaurdian, and Warrior would be ideal for tankish, defence, and heals from the ele. and any dps for the last 2!

    Necromancer (me) and any 4 other profs that want to come with me.

    It's not like WoW where you want X Y Z, it's really more a situation of bringing the player not the profession.

    Warrior? I love being the Battlemaster striking everything down in my path for my people!

    Guardian maybe but seems kind of like a Tyrian Paladin.

    imho this is a kinda wrong question for a game like gw2

    This is just wrong way to think... so wrong. Forget the holy trinity, it is gone. There is no need to mimic it.

    For all you people saying that there is no holy trinity, that's true in the classical sense of the phrase but don't forget about Boons and Conditions. There are going to be profession combinations that are just more optimal than others due to bringing some / all of the required buffs and debuffs. Some combos will just straight up synergise better too - particularly if explorable mode dungeons really are as balls hard as they are supposed to be.
