    oh and ofc i am a pvper so its intended to be a pvp dps-survivability spec
    will the offence be the best defence or going all out is the way to survive as warriors do?

    For shammy/druid build, add 1 more point to druid for greater fearie, that's a no brainer and very useful in PVP. Drop Endless Winter from your Shaman, you don't need it when you have Ageless Ice and Fea Hammer. Pickup Glacial Shield from Shaman and maybe Maelstrom instead (assuming you want to have 36 points in Shammy for the 36 point root power).

    Why did you invest 5 points into warden? From my testing that 10% dmg buff does not apply to melee attacks, so it's a waste, unless you were gunning for Crushing wave, in which case...why since you are a melee guy. I would advise Spending those points into sentinel instead. http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=00...bsVk.Vqhq0zV.m


    I dislike Shammy/Justicar build. It's not very efficient.
    Bye Bye Rift. Say hi to Pyros.

    This is my sham/just build:
    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=00...RR.VedztMohk.M

    You took put a lot more points in shaman that will benefit you. If you're not spamming crushing blow, about a third of the shaman tree is useless. If you are, then most of the Justicar tree is useless. (Or rather you miss out on convictions and the benefit of salvation.)

    The druid tree is a bit different. The questions is "do I care about the pet?" If you do, then you may want to sink real points into the pet to buff up it's HP and attack power. If you don't you can just put 18-20 points into the tree and pick up the passives, eruption, and maybe crag hammer.

    The other interesting Just build is to give up a few points, build sham to Jolt, and build sentinel up to protect the flock. This is less useful solo but more useful in groups.

    this is the build I use in pvp - druid/just

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=00...oe0oMz.VqhqhzV

    I consider it a strong annoyance build. I can't really kill, but hard to be killed while being face to face.

    usual attack items
    cast eruption of life
    cast trickster spirit
    cast shield of oak
    cast @self balm of the woods
    cast censure
    cast even justice

    then i also have all catch'em range em abilities to pick from
    sover
    bolt of radiance
    bombard
    humility

    stay close to me, don't run off ability
    stone burst

    mana gains from
    fae hammer and purpose

    caster/cc control
    silence
    slumber


    i just pretty much run into the objective and have fun. oh and the melee pet farie or satyr depending on the wf

    i keep doctorine of loyality and doctorine of bliss on the ready.

    thanks all for replying my thread i got very good ideas especially if i want to go pure melee i better avoid some talents^^
    mmh lvl 26 pet is the one that reach lvl 50? if so its a smart thing but as far as i know they are mainly melee aslong as they got only one spell attack and it's also weak....
    i will test some also the support version with more healing spec i may enjoy it i am used to play healers mainly in pve/raids but it shouldn's be too diff in pvp or at least i hope so...
