    Default Solo spec -- caster DPS druid?

    Hello,
    I'm hoping a pro cleric can help me out.
    I'd like to create a caster/ranged DPS druid build, with enough points in the soul to make sure the satyr is a good tanking pet. (Not sure if you need that many points in druid to keep the satyr a strong pet).
    I have Storm Legion, so defiler is available.
    Also, this is purely for solo content, no dungeons or raids.
    My ideal playstyle would be like a gravelord mage, only as a life-based cleric with faeries, satyrs, etc.
    Thanks in advance for any advice you can give.

    If you want a ranged character with a tank pet you will want full Defiler, or one of the other classes. Druid is built for melee. You can still build ranged specs, but they're not ideal. Here's some guides:


    Druid/Inq (better ST)

    Druid/Cab (better AoE)

    Druid/Defiler does work. I just can't find a guide right now. The above two would suffice however.

    59/17 defiler/cab is nice for solo, has decent aoe and can still be used in instances
    everything is inextricably inter-twingled

    Is that 17 cab for 100% husk chance? If so, you'd be better off maxing Druid. You'd only have a 5% link at 17 points, and you really wouldn't need Husk for that, Aid of the Forest would keep you healed sufficiently. If it's 2 points for Tenebrious Distortion, then you're still better off with 61 Druid. Life Breach is a big DPS boost, let alone the CD reduction on your two main skills, mana cost reduction and passive pet heal/dps increase.
