Are there any druids attempting and parsing DPS in raids at the moment? I'm working up the stomach to come back because I've heard good things but I don't really want to if we're still far behind.

if you are lucky enough to get a Bard + chanter running twincast aura we can do pretty respectable dps ... i can crack top 10 of my Crystallos guild when twincasts hit regularly and im not healing!

Druid DPS gains are verus melee, not against Mages or Wizards where it's no better than status quo. I'd say 7/10 Druids think things are looking up in the DPS department, and that's just my impression. The reason for gains against melee is faster casting nukes and double nukes through Twin Cast - which Mages and Wizards also got. Real healers like Druids are highlly sought after in raids, but nearly fogotten in groups due to mercs. If you are coming back, I hope you have a group of friends waiting for you or might be frustrated while leveling up to 85.

It really depends on the fight but sometimes you can do ok.

Druid dps is very good atm but that is probably changing in the patch on wednesday (may 13th) when they fix the 1.5 years old spelldmg "bug" on our winter's line. While we may deserve some nerfage, essentially halving the WF damage is going to be pretty brutal. (that is what it's like on Test server atm)

Some numbers, all with ench aura support;
