    Granted, the mez is alright, but both Sentinels and Wardens get (better) Silences, and the root breaks on taking damage, so that's fairly useless.

    You only get one debuff until you put 32+ points into the soul, though. :smiley-indifferent:

    AOE root is never fairly useless, ESPECIALLY in a PVP situation.

    Druid had some solid dps, parse it the abilities in heroic fights, comparing it by just reading descriptions is silly.

    I agree sentinal one is better, though you dont rly need it if you are building a melee cleric where you dont need spell power


    Shaman gets 20%.
    exactly why you pair it with druid, duh


    Too bad that 5% won't help you even come CLOSE to Shaman, Cabalist, Inquisitor, or even Justicar DPS.
    I never said to get 51 points into druid, 31 points is all u should get, and pair it with shaman for all that great other stuff


    Yeah, but if you increase 5 DPS by 100%, you get 10 DPS. Not a big deal. Plus, it's on a 3 minute cooldown.
    But if you increase 500 DPS by 100% it is 1000....


    Considering Eruption of Life's horrendous cooldown, yes, that's a wasted point. All you've done in this post is help me prove how lackluster the Druid soul is.
    Horrendous? 9 sec cool down is not horrendous, gives you time to hit your other abilities, or abilities from other soul you should be using for your main soul, again you shouldn't be 51 pointing druid.


    Lastly, all the benifits I listed are in one soul, not hodge podged from 3 different ones. They stack with the other ones to make the effects even more powerful. Druid is a support soul, not a main soul. And it still kills faster than ANY justicar spec lol

    Your biggest mistake is assuming that the Satyr pet puts out any DPS at all. He really doesn't.

    He puts out decent AE DPS (considering unlimited target AE for big pulls), thats it. I am not a druid fan boi though, so dont get me wrong. I just like ppl to know what is correct.


    I prefer Shaman/inq personally though.

    I wanted to clear a few things up in this thread, lots of bad info. I do pretty good dps as a Druid and was surprised the first time I dps'd in a zone with it. The Inq will do better aoe dmg of course, but for single target I choose Druid:

    - Satyr does great aoe dps, put points into Rage (2min cd).
    - Put at least 5 points in Shaman to get your crits AND their crits.
    - Put 5 points in Justicar to get +5% melee dmg.
    - That 5% increase in dmg for 30 ever 2 min is raidwide (not personal).
    - Eruption of Life, best dps - 9 sec cd is hardly horrendous, it is up every pull.
    - Druid has small heal plus a nice Ward which is instant cast and used way more often than the heal, can get another one in for 6 points in Shaman and you want the crits from there anyway. (I didn't even take it, not needed)
    - Justicar out dps a Druid? srsly?
    - AOE root is not supposed to break on damage.
    - Satyr pet passive buff is supposed to increase melee attack power by 15%, it is only applying that to your base attack power right now though.
    - Attack power/Spell power debuff is pretty nice, along with the 50% heals debuff.

    tl;dr: Druid is far better off than this thread implies.

    DPS'ing as a Justicar is easy. Count to four, then click "Doctrine of Valiance" for massive damage plus heals. In the meantime, the Druid has all of their shit on cooldown and just derps around.

    Ok, so then I guess I can put 15 points in Justicar to get Doctrine of Valiance.

    Then I can put up my temp buffs and debuff the mob instead of derping for four secs. Then own w/e parse you just did as a Justicar with my pet aoe'ing too.

    You're gonna want the point that gives you an extra Conviction on a crit, as well. It makes counting a tiny bit harder, but if you're not stupid, you can do even better DPS.
