    You don't want to take a druid tank, and you don't want to take a ret paladin.

    Ret paladin's don't bring anything to the group that:

    1) can't be brought by another class (in a better form)
    2) are a melee, so automatically worse than a ranged.

    A large part of achieving gold in cmodes is the proper use of AoE CC/Interrupts and a ret only bring a 2 minute CD stun (via glyphing blinding light) so you're much better off bringing a windwalker (5 second stun on a 45 second CD) or even a brewmaster tank. I can tell you right now, it is VERY unlikely that you would get gold in temple of the jade serpent running a ret paladin. The adds leading up to the second boss spam an AoE silence and rets will be DEMOLISHED by that. They can't use any of their abilities while silenced sot hey will be more or less useless if you can't kill the Adds fast enough. Add in the part that there's more of these adds before the third boss, and it becomes even worse.

    A druid tank runs into the same problem. Unlike other tanks they don't have as many defensive cooldowns, they don't bring a good AoE CC, they don't have a magic dmg CD (which is something you really need in cmodes)

    I've run 3 mode groups, and here's the comps

    1st group
    Tank: Blood deathknight
    Heals: Disc priest
    1st DPS: Elemental Shaman
    2nd DPS: Balance Druid
    3rd DPS: Demonology Warlock

    2nd Group
    Tank: Paladin tank
    Heals: Resto shaman
    1st DPS: Fury Warrior
    2nd DPS: Frost Deathknight
    3rd DPS: Frost Mage

    3rd Group
    Tank: Brewmaster Monk
    Heals: Resto Druid
    1st DPS: Elemental Shaman
    2nd DPS: Surv hunter
    3rd DPS: Demonology Warlock

    If you look through those comps, each member on each team brings buffs, debuffs, AoE CC, and so on.

    Here's some video's from the cmode groups I ran so you can see how some of these work out. (ordered from easiest to hardest in my opinion). I included rough estimates for amount of time it'll take for your first kill.

    Undertuned (expect to kill in under 2 hours of pulls):
    Scarlet Halls (Brewmaster Monk): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Zr2QfU5o-0
    Shado Pan Monastery (Prot Paladin): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHWurnEAwdg
    Seige of Nuizao Temple (Blood DK): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ywpVpjCNLME

    Well Tuned (2-3 hours of pulls):
    Scholomance (Blood DK): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LWHVN1awbYY
    Gate of the Setting Sun (Brewmaster Monk): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-2lctQSCVs0

    Tightly Tuned (3+ hours):
    Temple of the Jade Serpent (blood dk): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vfhS62eV9Ac
    Mogushan Palace (Brewmaster Monk): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zIW5WKmFtHQ
    Scarlet Monastery (Blood DK): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NndEBEOfatw

    OH GOD WHY BLIZZARD WHY (Lol !@#$ if I know, first time took me like 5 hours of attempts):
    Stormstout Brewery (Brewmaster Monk): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ki1Uk6CUQSw (for some reason I !@#$ed up importing it from twitch and it's missing the first trash pack, but you just pull the first 5 brawlers in one go)

    Some of the BM monk ones might be a little laggy since they were brought off a twitch stream instead of fraps like the rest. You're probably just better off finding another video of them for those ones.

    Bring the player not the class.... o wait...

    Personally GSS is the hardest ever cause those bombs at the beginning kill everyone.............

    I also found Mogushan Palace, Scarlet Halls, and Scholomance to be three of the easiest ones.

    P.S. DONT FORGET INVIS POTS!

    You will grow to hate the part that invis pot CD does not reset on wipes in Cmodes.

    I didn't think GSS was that hard personally, yeah the first pull was pretty hellish, but I think SM had much worse pulls (that 7 pack after the 1st boss) and brewery was just so tightly tuned compared to the rest that those two are harder in my opinion. Granted I've only ever tanked these and was hitting cooldowns galore on those three packs in GSS anyway so I never even noticed if I bomb hit me anyway.

    But yeah, when in doubt, class stack for cmodes, at least for your first go around. As you can see by the 2nd group I listed, we threw caution to the wind and just grabbed people that wanted it and a double melee comp did work out (although I never want to do the Wise Mari encounter with two melee and a tank again). you can do Cmodes with pretty much any comp, just for your first time through them, you're better off tipping the scales in your favor by making sure you have as much AoE CC as possible to help reduce the chance of massive group wiping mistakes.

    Also don't tank as a brewmaster, you will hate yourself. Never again.

    EDIT: OH GOD, just noticed that I put SM as the easiest on my list and not halls. Halls defintly the easiest, SM defintly NOT easy.
