personally i'd be tempted to try swashie/fury or brigand/fury combo on duo... if i had the chance, that is SMILEYwardens are nice too, but furies get better buffs to compliment the melee DPS department (whether a scout or a fighter.. berserker for example, like Skiv pointed out). Healwise i think wardens are a tad better... however not much. On DPS department the fury might have slight advantage... mut IMO not much (some say otherwise, so what gives? SMILEY)++Xan

Fury og Warden best dps/healer? Since someone ruined another thread with alot of math and statistics and plausable reasoning, I will do the opposite in this thread.

Wardens get a heal spell at level 80, Furies get a dps spell. Wardens are by design the better healers and furies are by design the better dps. Period. SMILEY

As to what to duo with, I would sugest going with whatever you think sound the most fun... in the end the difference will be marginal. If you do want to add dps though, I would say furies are mostly spellcasting dps where wardens are mostly melee dps.

I am spellcasting warden, which works just fine too! (if you just dont admit it on the boards SMILEY)

Intersesting thought but fury's got upgrades to ancient teaching heals (bitf for example) that heal more when the target is under 50% hit points and the warden pet will die quick to aoe's although it is nice for soloing, duoing, and non AOEing named mobs.

Healing is pretty much equal between all healing classes and was made so with LU 13 which made them that way at level 60. The upgrades various classes got at 80 are to correct the imbalances caused by lack of ancient teaching spells that didnt get upgraded in the 60's but were in the 70's as well as just to have something new.

Both druids are healer/dps hybrids just like clerics and shaman are healer/buff/debuff hybrids. Wardens tend to do better DPS with melee/str gear but we lag behind fury's in the dps department.

Another way to look at it is all healers can heal, its the secondary abilities (buff, debuff, dps) that are different and if grouping with other healers, whos heals land first (shaman then cleric then druid regen) which can skew a heal parse badly.

Warden and Zerker is a nice combo...so is Warden and Monk.    If he wants to roll a melee dps (meaning the dps scout-type classes)  class, fury will buff him better, but I just don't think Fury is as fun as Warden.  Pretty subjective, I know..but it sounds like you are more looking to have 'fun' than to min/max for high end raid content SMILEY<img src=" width="15" height="15" />

I've said it before:  you can level pretty much any class to like..14 in an afternoon - which gives you a little bit of a glimpse at how well they do together.  Before you invest a ton of time, you might try that.  Granted, you don't see ALL the cool things any given class will have, but it sounds to me like you guys just want a fun combo that won't be fighting against itself (like, say, if you rolled a coercer and a warlock ).
