    Default Courage of the Eagle or Courage of the Bear (for soloing)?

    I know that Courage of the Bear will increase Attack Power and Passively help Parry as well, but with the build I am using Justicar/Shaman, I have the trait to enhance my Parry by 165% of my Spell Power. Since Wisdom adds Spell Power, and it's also the basis of several Cleric abilities, does Eagle win out over Bear in this case?

    For soloing you should be using a 2 hander. This means you only need 2 points to get parry capped (usually). Bear gives you nothing really. I use the jaguar or eagle buff. If there are other casters around and no bard, I prefer the eagle, if more mdps, then jaguar.

    Wisdom = Spellpower

    Spellpower = Physical (Justicar passive) damage, parry, larger healing effects

    I'd only use jaguar if you have two rogues with you, or something similar.

    Dex gives you crit. More crit = more damage .

    Oh you =P

    At least when I'm using rage of the north, Eagle would be much more beneficial, and if you have a high rate of crit already ( I have 400~) I leave Eagle on.

    eagle if you have good crit already (>500)
    jaguar if not
    bear is for justicar tanking only, to help increase your block absorb. Don't use it for dpsing.
    Do the herpty derp, please, keep LOSing your healers behind objects so you die.

    Not much more, actually. Like I said, I use it to buff casters around me, not myself.

    Baconbits said it before I could. For some reason my AP is not affected in my stat sheet if I turn on Bear, but my Physical Crit is.

    Another thing to keep in mind, if there's a person in the group that casts a wisdom buff, eagle will not stack with it.

    jag gives you crit and slightly less SP/AP than if you use eagle.
    I really enjoy the fact this topic has NOTHING to do about Rift, and it turned into a Rift fest.

    I'm just gonna report my own thread and be done with it.
