    Geyser has higher damage, lower mana cost, and additional healing effect, and requires only a few more skill points compared to waterjet.
    Why did Trion even create waterjet for? Isn't it pretty pointless?


    Also, is the optimal dps Geyser -> Emblem of Ice ->Bolt of Light when in a phrase in which healing is not required?

    Water jet used to be extremely OP back in old school rift but in today's standard yes it's not worth it. And if you just keep all 3 dots up from warden and spam geyser you should be doing decent dps in warden but no one cares about healer dps in raids cause if they do then something is wrong with teh raid IMO.

    Waterjet is an ability that has existed since Vanilla Rift. Geyser was added in 1.8 (or was it 1.9?) when the rework for souls occurred to prepare for 2.0 as well as to nerf -icar builds.

    It's pointless now but it wasn't when it was first added. As far as Warden DPS goes, I don't even really try to manage all DoTs. Geyser spam best spam.

    Lots of soul trees have archaic early point abilities that are never worth using at max level.

    For Warriors, Paragon has Swift Strike and Warlord has Empowering Strike. Liberator has Castigate.
