I only recently bought the expansion, and I finally got around to making a character that uses the Dream mastery. So far, I've been going the melee route, and it's been a blast!
The problem is, I'm having trouble choosing a second mastery, and the level where I have to choose is coming up rapidly. Of course, if I make a choice I don't like, I can always throw it away and make a new character, but I thought I would pick the brains of this board.
The secondaries I've been considering:
The upside is that I'm quite familiar with the Nature tree from my soothsayer and champion. The downside is that I already have a melee character with wolves following him around (the champion). The wolves will undoubtedly die a lot during boss fights, but since I'll be capable of standing toe-to-toe with bosses myself, this isn't as much of an issue as it has been with other pet classes I've tried.
The upside is that I'm not as familiar with the earth tree, and some of the magical attacks look like a lot of fun, and there's even a talent I can use with my melee attacks. The downside is that the pet wouldn't be all that useful. Since I'll be able to tank myself, I'm guessing that a tank pet with low damage output wouldn't be as useful to me as it would be if I were a caster.
Deathchill aura would be great for dealing with large groups of trash mobs, and the liche king would make boss fights go faster. Outsider would help with burst damage both for large groups of trash mobs and with boss fights.
I have yet to make a character that sticks to one and only one mastery.
Anyway, what are your thoughts on this? I'm kinda leaning towards ritualist (nature) or diviner (spirit) at this point, but I'm still open to suggestions.
