    I'm not a level 50 cleric only 42 atm and I'll probably get told I'm wrong but done a bit of pvp whilst levelling.
    Why spec so heavily into druid? Alot of the higher talents you have picked don't give you melee based benefits wouldn't you be better offer for example getting brutalize since you specced for increased crits with it. Also I would imagine Venegance of the Frozen North would be hugely helpful in stopping enemies escaping if your playing a melee based role.
    Finally why would you skip the 15% armor increase in Justicar - your missing one of the best skills. I suggest you look up some other pvp melee based builds.

    I've done a lot of experimenting as a melee cleric, and I absolutely hate using Justicar. It doesn't give me the type of survivability that's worth losing burst/damage, at least in my opinion. Also, the snare vengeance is pretty horrible, I notice people getting away just as much with or without it.

    Currently I use: http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=00....ExkxtbsAk.Vxz for pure dps and http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=00...kVoz.xxzxtbshk as my "support" build

    With that dps build, you're looking at 60% increased crit dmg, and it really is amazing when using "Rage of the North", not to mention the self-buffed crit from inquisitor and the increased sp (ap) from sentinel

    With decent gear, you can maintain some really nice burst and have the survivability of Justi also.

    I will do a video for you guys and have it out by thursday at the latest of JUST melee.

    If you look at the video i posted before I actually started as melee but got rocked and fell back on the injusticar. but since theres not a ton of melee videos and melee is rough to pull off in pvp... ill shoot one.
    As for music... I think ill use "WE BE CLUBBIN" by icecube since im going to be clubbing people upside their head with my p6 hammer.

    Personally, I prefer my shaman/druid hybrid spec, as I feel I bring more to a group then a poor man's Warrior.. however I do enjoy the big numbers associated with going for all-out DPS.

    Although: peronsally, I'd go 51 druid if they would put Battle Charge as at the third tier in the tree rather than at the top where only someone going deep in Shaman can get it. For Shaman, though, it needs more CC to be a serious PvP spec.
