    Default stacking buffs

    druid ability
    Strength of Earth
    increases attack power by 5% of spell power
    passive stat buff

    shaman ability
    Courage of the jaguar
    increases attack power by spell power
    increases physical crit by spell crit
    increases melee hit by spell focus
    9 mana instant last one hour

    Justicator ability
    increases attack power by spell power
    increases physical crit by spell crit

    4% mana lasts one hour


    Do these three stack? because that seems kinda over the top if they do.

    The Justicar and Shaman buffs do not stack. However I'm not sure about the Druid soul, but being a branch ability and thus not a root ability i would assume that it does stack. Its only the actives that do not.

    They don't. When you cast one, it gives you two buffs -- one which gives the +5% dex (courage of the jaguar) or whatever the base ability is, and one which gives the + melee stats. When you cast a second spell that gives the same buffs (summon faerie, etc), the second (+ melee) buff disappears, and re-appears from the newer spell. So each buff still has the base bonus, but you only get one buff that improves your melee.

    They do not stack, though I think the druid one applies because it isn't a buff, rather a stat increase via talents.

    I did notice as a Shaman/Druid that the buffs do not stack, but its nice knowing if your fairy gets obliterated you won't suddenly be worthless because the other buff will remain in effect that increases your damage via your spell stats.

    Makes for a better pvp viability too since your pet can get whacked real easily.
    We don't want a game, we want a second home. We play for escape.

    I tested this out in Beta 5 and "Strength of earth" stacked with the Courage, fae and Justicar abilities. But the courage, fae and Justicar buffs do not.
