I agree. Not everything should be able to do the same things. Why not just have 1 class only that does everything. Skys do not need to cure. Play a class that cures. Plain and simple. Or play your sky and a barb or paladin and stick to mid to high zone content.

But relative to a sky scout, a druid DOES do everything and more.  No class should be superior to another in every conceivable way.  Currently druids are superior to sky in every scenario.  (I am not asking for a druid nerf)

I have a legend druid and a non-legend sky. I disagree.

warrior + cleric can probably do a lot more than sky + anything.  skies and mages are two things that cannot form half of an effective duo.
Tell that to my legend white robe and sky scout combo!

+30% healing received, +20% healing done, -10% physical damage with globe and boon does work. Get a vitriolic shield / lightning shield rank on your medal for the harder fights and you're cooking with gas.

Tornado seems to do more damage than volley

If sky + white already works well, why do sky scouts need curing power?

They don't. That's more or less what our argument is.

Are you running around with 12 dex skies? 5x annih 3x per round is a shitton more damage.

It doesn't work well. I can scrape through some lower zones like gaard, but if I swap the sky for my shaman I can do glymmer and such.

It's fun to try and make it "work"... but it doesn't really work.

Comparative length of time similar fights last. It's not fricking rocket science.

I have an easy solution for this:
Remove sky scouts, bring back rangers to replace them. Leave Ocean and Mountain as is.
Done!
