    Default RIFT Has Set a Precedent...

    ...as the first game where Druids suck.

    I played around with all of the Cleric souls last Beta, and honestly, the Druid soul is garbage except for their 31 point pet. Their main damaging ability, Eruption of Life, has a painful cooldown that prevents the Druid from doing any real DPS. On top of that, both Faerie pets are absolutely awful. They can't DPS, and their healing is extremely limited.

    Has anyone else noticed that this soul is fricking awful?

    lets hope noone of my fellow druids read this, but rift is not the first game to make druids sucky (by druid i guess you actually meant wardens because the soul named druid in rift is no druid really)

    looking back/sidewards, druids suck in both eq2 and RoM, from what people tell me the same applies to WoW. iirc warhammer did it right and leave the druids (i.e. wood elfs) out of the game. druids are also really meh in (A)D&D, no idea if they made it to DDO

    about "druid" being the suck.. well both pets are HORRIBLE, thats for sure. but shaman/druid/X wasnt THAT bad for solo-leveling in my personal experiences. i gotta admit i never really tried to use the druids side of the skills but still..

    No, I do mean the actual Druid soul. It's terrible.

    Yeah, but it's mostly Shaman putting out any DPS, the Druid soul just kinda sits there and pretends to be useful.

    Parse on my Soul Tree Calculator: Druid (31) / Shaman (22) / Sentinel (0) :: Rift: Planes of Telara :: ZAM at lvl 40, was satyr AE, Jolt, Wild Strike, Eruption of Life... It did plenty of dps tbh

    Druid is more of a utility though.

    First time I summoned the pet I was like 'no way, no fucking way' and have never looked back. I dropped it as soon as I could.

    The pet graphic alone is enough to make me never touch this soul. Plus the pet died in pvp and was a nuisance more then anything else.

    Yeah, but it's pretty half-assed at it. It should say "Support Soul," not "Offensive Soul," and it really should be tailored more towards support.

    I ran a Druid/Warden combo during Major rifts and it was alright. Probably going full out healer or full out DPS would've been more effective, though.
