My friend and I will be rolling a tank/healer pair up. He is going Pally/warlord/champ. I was wondering if I am going to encounter challenges keeping him and the rest of the group alive. I am speccing deep enough into the drd tree to get the greater fairie, with the rest split between justicar and sentinel. I feel that between the pet heals, my justicar damage being converted into heals, and the nice group and single target sentinel heals we should be fine. However I am open to criticism and positive feedback.

ditch the high druid... more into the j/s lines. Pet is nice... but in J u get the melee heals ya want for a close support melee group... and if ya put stuff into sent, ya get what ya need for groupage. I would swap druid for warden so ya get the hots, then u will be uber in duo.

Ditch Justicar for Warden if you really want the fairy. Justicar is a tanking tree primarily, mostly because you'll never be able to keep up with a pure healer if you try to use the Justicar convictions to heal because you'll only ever have a max of 4 to use so in situations where you have to switch to heal only mode (high damage phases where the amount of damage coming in is great than or equal to your healing output) you'll blow your convictions healing and then have to melee-heal-melee-heal..... and you'll always be a step behind a pure healer like warden, sentinel or purifier because you'll have to use 2 global cooldowns for every heal you want to use as a Justicar.

I've been doing druid26/shamXX/ward12 and it works ok. Your not going to be main healing dungeons or rifts, but with another healer you will be fine. For quest grinding it works great and you will be able to keep a tank up with one same level elite on him. You can also have another role that is pure healer for dungeons pur/ward/sent. Think of the druid pet as one heal, you need four-ish heals to use to keep a tank alive in a level appropriate dungeon.

try out this build:

its jus/pur/war

you can switch to pur heals during high damage, but otherwise should focus on tank healing with doctrine of rightousness/caregiver's blessing/surging flames.

i feel pretty late replying to this thread but as i see it i actually did this same pair up with my friend and i went pure healing. Warden/Sentinel/Purifier was for me the best support i could give my tanking friend. i could pull about 6-7 mobs with Waterjet > shield myself > HoT my friend and myself > and then waterjet more or heal if the mobs were elite or not.

this way better in my eyes, but looking at your initial setup it looks like he is going to tank and then you going into a justicar build with healing as a sub-soul feels very inefficient, but that just what I'm seeing. Now if you went full tank mode (Justicar/Shaman/Warden or Sentinel as a 0 point sub-soul) and your friend went full dps, which i have done with my friend, you guys really rake in heals and mob killing. then again theres Mana issues and as for a warrior they dont have that.

This has been addressed quite well in the thread but I'm wondering if such a thing were possible as a healing 26/druid? I've yet to start playing the game, just heard of it and been investigating, but it sounds great. I'd like to create a support build that can solo well. I was thinking of the possibility of a melee druid with its healing pet out that would be able to throw out heals when needed, seeing as it'd be melee I thought AoE's sounded like the best option for the immediate tank and other melee dps. This is a build I just threw together and was wondering what would be considered wrong with it? Sen/Drd/Sha, of course I don't intend on being main heal but being a dps that can support heal. I realize my dps would probably be mediocre but wanted feedback as to what other problems there'd be. It looks fairly well rounded to me, it has more than enough heals available, can cleanse and AoE cleanse, has a couple of forms of cc with its silence and slumber, and lots of party and AoE buffs.

Druid is a melee spec. Back it up with Warden or Sentinel if you want some heals... or use Warden/Sentinel as your primary/ies, instead.

Edit: Here's a rough representation of what I'm using at lv37 (Sentinel/Warden/Purifier) - http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=00jeG.v0E0bsxco.xV0xo ... you've got plenty of HoTs, good spike heals, a self shield (Protection of the Ancestors), damage reduction buff (Healer's Covenant), an "oh, ****" button (Touch the Light), plenty of healing bonuses and crit bonuses, Orbs of the Stream for "set it and forget it" heals on DPSers, etc. etc.

In a few levels, though, I'd likely pull points from Watchful Gaze and push toward Ripple in the Warden tree. If you absolutely have to look at that ****-ugly fairy, then drop Purifier and its shielding skill for Druid 0pt.
