    Default Warden's Riptide and Melee Attacks.

    Quick question about Riptide. It specifically states spell crit. Cleric melee trees now reference spell values directly, rather than the old Faith In Action conversion. I've not read confirmation or denial that Riptide has influence on Shaman/Druid/Justicar attack abilities yet, though.

    Anyone know for sure whether it does or not?

    I could parse it, but I'm kind of at work at the moment.

    Lovely. With the old Faith in Action system, there were some talents that specified one type or another. With the new Cleric stat referencing, and Riptide specifying spell, I wasn't entirely sure which way that would go. Thanks.

    What'cha building? I hope your not trying to work warden into some kind of weird dps build, because even though you pick up 5% crit won't you be loosing 5% damage (provided your going a full 5 points into riptide) with warden gifts vs. dps soul gifts?
    "Overall we want the various callings to be competitive with each other in their comparative roles. There isnít a mandate that Rogues do more damage than Warriors or that Mages be the best ranged damage in the game. Ideally we would like to see players with equivalent skill, gear, planar attunement, buffs etc be equally effective at damage, tanking or healing." - Kervik

    You know like the highest Inquisitor spec has 11 warden on it, right?
