This thread and in general our forums are geared toward 10/25 man raiding. What happens in 5 mans is essentially irrelevant to this conversation.

We did not have a Tricks or MD in the group, but we did have a mage (invis). The only times pickups tend to be difficult is with Fury Warriors, Frost DKs, or Hunters who seem to have misplaced their MD macros.
Well, my team consisted of a Fury Warrior, a Hunter (though his macro absolutely isn't misplaced) and a Cat (Feral) who were at about 25-30k bombing-dps.
Sometimes a Mage is in the team and replaces the fury, but since he's at about 20k singletarget and doesn't always have threat-reducing abilities ready, it's not easy to tank either.
I should probably go and look for some more moderate DPS. :P
