    Default Shaman/Inquisitor build

    So I was wondering (I haven't played the game yet) if the Inquisitor (ranged) and Shaman (melee) combo would be viable?

    I was thinking about something like this :

    The question is, would I dilute the classes too much, making me crap at melee and casting?

    Edit : With a third soul (druid) :

    Your passives won't compliment each other. Could be fun to play, but it'd be a gimp combination.

    If that's so, is there a melee/caster hybrid combo that could work?

    Look into the druid tree. It has both melee and ranged damage skills.

    If I'm interpreting what you're asking correctly, I think you might want to take a look at Justicar/Inquisitor.

    What would your goal be for going ranged and melee in one build? You are just gimping yourself in both aspects. You can build an entire role around ranged and then do another for when you want to go melee.

    Shaman has a charge ability with a small cooldown, that will keep you on your target pretty much all the time. Build around your melee damage, and drop that target faster.

    So it's impossible to make a competetive melee/caster hybrid?

    No. There are many options for this. I'm not completely well versed in the Cleric calling, but I can say that in the Warrior calling, the Riftblade plays much like a melee/caster hybrid. They have many ranged elemental attacks along with their melee.

    As a cleric, there are melee/caster hybrid souls like Druid. You just have to find the right synergy with your passives.

    Thanks. I'll take another look at the planner then. Or I might just roll the Riftblade ;)

    I do not think that is true . I am planning to play a Inq/just/war in the next beta http://rift-planner.com/?archetype=4...17,5_&lang=eng

    I like Inq/Just/Sham.http://rift-planner.com/#?archetype=...17,5_&lang=eng
    Purge, instant range snare, dots and life based damage to build conviction while smashing face.

    So I suppose the inquisitor/justicar combo could have the right synergy? How well does a justicar fight in the melee?
