    Default Is this class what I am looking for?

    I'm looking for 2 things, I already love defiler, and would love to play one. What I am truly wondering is how is melee dps? Could I actually do it or is there no chance. Even if I can't do straight melee dps could I be a 2h melee support, casting buffs and heals. In the vain of a chanter in Aion or a Captain in LotRO

    Shaman and Druid are 2 souls for the cleric that are melee DPS oriented. Shaman is higher DPS but a more complex rotation. Druid is lower DPS but a simpler rotation (and uses a pet).

    Shaman does competitive melee DPS with other melee DPS souls.

    But as previously mentioned, most of the boss fights are unfriendly to melee range.

    As for support, never played those games, but given your description of them, no. The cleric officially doesn't have a "support" soul. The best you can do is provide 1 or 2 (as opposed to 4-5+ for real support) unique buffs and/or healing.
