    Default Melee ranged dps?

    If we mix shaman with purifier for example won't it be a pretty OP mix in PVP? When they are close we use melee when they get away we use spells. Or am i missing something?

    Thats some crazy theorycrafting you got going on...

    if you mixed a man, bear and pig it would so be a shaman and purifier build.

    Why does shaman need ranged? At level 26 you get battle charge which lets you rush 20 meters, hit like a truck, and snare the opponent for 6 seconds. Rinse and repeat if they get any distance.

    I am having a hard time talking myself into playing any other calling, since clerics can do everything.

    The Battle Charge even removes snares and roots already on you.

    MDPS build that looks to be a self-sustained PiTA for the enemy. Very mobile with strong healing and damage. (hopefully)

    I saw someone running around World of Warcraft as a Worgen Druid calling themselves Manbearwolf . . .

    Not that this has anything to do with anything else.

    So yeah, hey, it's possible to mix types of attacks on your character making them suck less in melee/at range than in other games!

    B4 warrior with 21 skill points in paragon and the min 6 skill points, (if I remember right), in riftblade. Give her an 60+ point damage range attack per ranged riftblade fire bolt spell with about a 2 second cool down timer for pulling mobs and range support attacks.

    It is not much damage at one time, but it adds up and I think is a big help to paragon type warriors.

    Default Thanks

    So its better to get the bonus from a tree to stack with the bonus of the others so i get more damage, right?

    Passives tend to stack (either additive or multiplicative) so if you can pick up things from different soul tress that do the same thing it can be a good idea, yes.
