    not really sure if hotlinking images is ok for them, so ill just place a link.

    what im saying is that currently druids fairies are just an audio-visional annoyance.

    The druid soul is only awful as a main choice, there are some benefits to it as a tertiary choice, possibly 2ndary but that pushes it. The problem is the new changes forcing people to go deep in the main tree making it harder to get to the useful druid abilities.

    At 40, druid was putting out just as much DPS in group as shaman was.

    Solo, druid was slightly ahead.

    The thing to keep in mind was, my druid was giving my group more attack power from the satyr pet and druid has the temp buff to increase damage, where as my shaman gave the group nothing.

    At 50, druid will be nothing more than a 2nd soul though.

    The fairy does suck balls, the greater fairy is a lot better, and the satyr pet is fun!

    I like Druid/Justicar a lot, if you need the Satyr pet. I will agree the only reason in going druid is to get the Satyr pet, but it's nice and is a viable soul choice just for that.

    It's a great Soul to have if you are tanking an instance as a cleric. Justicar/Shaman/Druid is a great combo for tanking. But, yeah I have to agree, unless you go full boar into the tree, it lacks excitement.

    I find the 10pnt ability in Druid is usefull leveling up. Soloing with no downtime thanks to the mana regen with the Shaman/Justicar build going heavy in Shaman.

    But thats just me.

    Youre crazy for going druid/warden Kript really the cleric skills dont mesh like that, mage does a much better job of offering different choices.

    Shaman/Just/druid for solo/dps

    Sent/Ward/Pur for heals

    If you decide on a melee role, Justicar is your self healing. Heals on hit. Spammable conviction heals. They go together. I would advise against going down a 3rd soul to draw out all of the potential in your Shaman or Druid.

    If you decide on a casting role, Purifier is your self healing. 4 points and you get a great heal for yourself.

    You guys are dumb. Druid/Shamn at 50 is Unreal. Justicar DPS sucks. Shaman DPS relies too much on crits at high levels.

    Satyr Pet with the right mix + Shaman for goodies makes Druid > Shaman

    Druid/shaman is great for ST fights.. but I still keep going back to Shaman/Inq for massive AE damage ._.

    I have been picking up as much +crit gear as possible though, so I crit a lot. Around 25% crit solo.

    Oh good, I'm glad that the Druid soul finally becomes viable at max level. Which, coincidentally, also happens to be the level when you don't need to solo quest anymore and every other class can out DPS you without breaking a sweat.
