Ok, I am purring this out to other coercers to give it a shot if you can pull the group togetehr. I was hunting in CT last night (lvl 3SMILEY and we had to throw together a ghetto group due to lack of players around.
Me (38 coercer)
42 Assasain
41 Ranger
41 Bard
40 Ranger
40 Cleric
We were pulling non stop yellows and orange ++ mobs with no stopping and zero time between pulls (ie - when mobs was almost dead, ranger would grab anotehr mob)
With my job as power, stifle, and haste, our ranegr was able to effectively tank (never took any real damage) all the mobs we pulled. The cleric never went below 90% mana and ended up healing me when I used consuming thoughts.
If you get a chance, try it out and let me know your thoughts.

I've watched coercers who solo higher con heroics using 2 unbreakable roots while keeping 2 separate encounters locked down at the same time (no other class could pull off such a heroic feat). That is called Crowd Control. What Enchanter's are supposed to do.

I usually just read the forums but I HAD to post here..fun topic
50 coercer here
Here was my trick to 44-50 in just under a week. About 6 hours a night..roughly 9pm-3pm
The most discusting DPS imaginable...(this is pre wiz/warlock buff too...would love to add wiz to this mix now)
We were parsing almost the entire time. Since all haste stacks. In PF we were dropping 46-50^^ in seconds. Even 5 manned Gyrok in our mid 40s.
The key here not only was we decided on making this a static group till we hit 50, but the group haste involved here.
Zerker roughly   +40% to group
Coercer             +75% to group
Bard   roughly    +20% to group
and yes it all stacks....our haste at 46+ was averaging 127% to 137% at 50
The zerker was tanking...not even in DPS mode and hitting consistantly 180-220 dps...they also have self hastes that stack pushing them to over 200% haste
Monk was nailing a good 120-160 dps
Bard 100-150 dps
Mystic and coercer don't really count..I averaged 50-100...although 100 is really high..you gotta be nailing alot of solo HOs....the mystic usually healing still pulled of 30-60 now and then
If you wanna make if even better now throw in a guard to tank and let the zerker go in dps mode..or add a wiz for another good 150 - 200dps...absolutely sick SMILEY
btw if your not hitting 75% haste then you didn't choose the trait grp haste at 40..it stacks with velocity!
Anyway if you can get lucky enough to throw a grp like this together then enjoy the super fast Xping

You can have the group haste and normal haste up at the same time?

Best group action I've had:
Coercer (me).
Against large groups of mobs, the 2 necromancer pets can hold the aggro of 2 mobs, effectively cutting down the amount of mobs beating on the guardian (thus less healing needed by the inquisitor, which leads to less aggro on said healer).
Also, when things do go sour (i group with these guys frequently), the bruiser can usually get away and we can all rez then.
I can also say, change one of the necro's out for a Wizard, and things still go smoothly.
