That group sounds like a lot of fun! And having fun is the most important thing. But since you were asking earlier about the "ideal box crew," have you considered swapping out the Mage for an Enchanter? RNG/CLR/ENC is an extremely powerful trio. For most of the game, the ranger tanks with cleric heals and the enchanter does haste/slow/CC/charm pet dps (possible to do all four while 3-boxing once you get the hang of it - and charmed pets are soooo sick in this era). Once the ranger gets EQ, you reach your final form - the hasted charmed pet tanks the slowed mob with the cleric's complete heals, and the ranger does ranged dps (double damage, too, because the mob is being tanked) while also providing solid pulls, sow, and a great snare to make the charming much safer. You lose the mage pet which hurts a lot, but you get slow, haste, and mez in return.I am going to make a first run with a Cleric/Ranger/Mage trio I think. I know you can play whatever you think is fun, but I think it can fear kit pretty well up to level 60 or so. Plus the mage can summon arrows, as it will be a while till I get a bracer or EQ. Although most likely melee will be the thing till the 50's and the Archery AA's.
Who knows, if I find that crown thing from Island 6 in the bazaar, I might even be able to get the Mage epic pet. I'm sure that will outdamage even the water pet backstabbing till the Planar pets come around.
