    Default A quick question!

    Is there any melee 2h dps spec that is viable in this game for PvE? I want to play this class cause they look fun in pvp but I also want to raid and 2h dps is my favorite. Thanks

    Only viable 2h melee dps is the warrior calling.

    As it stands, shaman is considerably worse than inquisitor ranged dps for clerics, and we're already the worst dps compared to other callings.

    Yes, I don't think ranged dps should be our best option.

    um shaman has always been the redheaded stepchild of the cleric class. Even when INQ wasnt our top DPS shaman was never number one. First it was druid>shaman then it was INQ> shaman. For what ever reason shaman always came up 2nd.

    But I agree, I think shaman should be the highest DPS role (single target) in the cleric class and I do not think Inq's should be nerfed for it to happen. Keep INqs as is and just fix shamans so they parse in the top 2 of all classes for dps fights with out movement. In other words if the shaman is just standing there not moving and stright dpsing only one other class should be able to out dps with the same enviorment.
    I kill more players than anyone! Just ask the last raid that asked me to heal!!!!!

    There is the 51 shaman build 51 shaman/11 inq/4 justicar or 4 warden (i..e 4 justicar one http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=10dnr.Vxz.EedttrsAk.L) but like others said 51 Inq does it better and is ranged so really no point to run a 51 shaman.

    Well I played a captain in lotro, and I would also liek a class like that, is there a spec where I could be shaman(melee dps) throw out occasional heals and throw up buffs? I don't need to be straight dps, just not a straight healer or straight tank.
