AoE debuff mobs, debuff bosses, use Healing Melody in addition with healer to keep up with damage if your companions get too many hits, use melee attacks. In short, be an assistant fighter.
And give the correct harmony to each class, the daggers and archers are the most fragile among the fighter classes, so better use Knight harmony if they're ganked by mobs/bosses (Zellaka has a rather strong AoE physical skill that can eat 2/3 of a dagger's life bar). Same thing for mages that keep being targeted by mobs/Zellaka.

Mass Cripling, mass shadow, mass root.

also, incase you didn't know. Turn stone is a great help in this instance. especially after the Boss fear. His AOE strike is killer if you don't run out in time. I don't have the greatest of reflexes so I tend to run in and debuff then run back out and keep the grouped healed.

I made a nice macro for Kartia today,
/useskill Mass Crippling Attack
/useskill Mass Shadow Blade
If you don't have element on your gear, keep buffs up, run around, then when your aoe's are ready for reuse, run alongside the mob mass, use your macros, then run around for a few seconds till reuse. If you have good armor/wep, stay and smack stuff. The reason for the macros is finding a frog to target is a pain and if you do, it's often dead before the second aoe. This made my life easier. Don't worry about healing people unless the healer is slow or manages to get in boss fear range (sigh). Any DD who dies without knights, then gets Knights because they suck and need training wheels, aka +45% pdef.
Remember sonatas, since they are on the regular buff bar, and you have a lot going on, I manage to forget ~ once per kartia. =(
