I just came back from retiring and i find playing a single class boring so im going to PL a class to box with my druid. He is Time/Qvic geared and ive played pretty much every class at one point or another that was 65 when that was the cap so i dont think much has changed that i cannot learn.. anyway im wondering what class makes a good complement to druids? I dont really raid right now because i just got a job and im working obsessive hours to get money for college but when i do play id like to box and have fun and not go solo with just druid.. its quite monotonous..(sp?) Well suggestions would be welcome and i also have a 63 bard on same acct who is like a super twink who i was considering transferring to the 2nd account but not sure. Well thanks for the info ahead of time.. :)

I have found that pretty much anything except a cleric goes well with a druid.

Another Druid, of course! :)
I'd probably pick Monk personally, actually thinking about doing that myself.
Though pallies are nice too because our Skin of Reptile

can crit when it proc's on them, though they can lack in dps (/duck).
I'm interested in what others have to say as well!

Dunno bout 2B, but my partner is a SK and it works out great. Course, he uses a willsapper to slow when we need it :wiggle:

I've always liked duoing with Beastlord/SK/Paladin

I prefer Beastlords, Necros, other Druids, Pallies, Sk's... in that order.

Beastlord, SK, Ranger, Shaman or Necro is what I usually end up duoing with although I used to duo extensively with a mage friend and that worked well too.

well, my main char is a bard decently geard up too.. soo, i find i can tank quite a few spots with a druid healer..
hence the effort to make the alt/2nd box...
for me.. druid's like the perfect compliment to my bard.. can heal/port/snare/damage(when needed).. since a cleric can't offer the snare/port ect.. i perfer druid's.

/wave Juustaa. Been a long time :)

I like rangers. They complement well if they have the right aa's. I cast reptile and healing is almost non existant so I can concentrate more on nuking :)

I usually use druid + pally or druid + necro.

I find a Druid/Bst combo works pretty well for a lot of things. The pet makes a nice off tank for multiple pulls, plus the bst spells compliment a druid's spell line up.

If I didn't have a Bst already though I would consider an Sk or Pally.

I like the druid / ranger combo, it's nice for raiding, and the ranger has a lot of similar abilities (for instance I can put snare on the same hotkey on both, or I get frustrated when my rogue alt can't track). I use my ranger for extra DPS, occasional tankage, etc. He's got his earthcaller, so it makes it easier to heal some fights when your hydra can sorta tank and sorta slow. I guess that's also why people like the bst hydras.

Aye... If I had to recommend a class, I would go with a Beastlord or Necromancer... Ummm also, a Shadowknight would be nice or even a Bard. :) These are just my preferences though. :)
