Inspired by Arti Juggernaut. This build can self heal with quickened heal spells. Use manyshot for burst damage and has decent two handed fighting with staffs while centred. It has evasion, decent reflex saves and sneak attack. For icing on the cake it gets rogue skills and UMD.
(Partly for flavor and partly due to the focus on staffs this build will probably not use animal forms much.)
This build will take advantage of the new update 19 enhancements.
Elf is used because it gives dex damage to bows. Rogue Acrobat is used because it gives dex damage to staffs. Monk is needed to add extra feats and it also gives damage to staffs.
Total extra staff modifiers from rogue and monk levels will be (+2+3 Henshin Mystic) + (+3+4Acrobat) = +5+7.
Rogue Acrobat gives some nice abilities especially faster staff attacks and some decent attacks. Monk (Henshin) gives vulnerability to fire / cold which will be useful in elemental form and staff attacks. Monk ninja will give sneak attack bonus.
Druid (Nature's Warrior) get some nice defensive enhancements, stances, spells, healing and offensive buffs especially in elemental form. Druid's also get shillelagh which will boost the staff damage by .
Issues: This build won't get THF feats or Overwhelming Critical because of str requirements. The three rogue levels need to be taken fairly early for the dex to damage enhancement. The two monk levels need to be taken early because the only useful martial arts feats are toughness and power attack.
Cleave and Great Cleave are used to compensate for the lack of AOE damage from the THF feats.
There are many nice attacks from the new enhancements too.
Epic feats chosen from precise shot / improved precise shot / improved crit: ranged / empower heal
This build will be a spell boosted staff wielding elemental who can self heal and many shot the snot out of baddies.
I accept it won't be as powerful as a regular juggernaut but it will be above average and fun. (And not a toaster)
I think it will work but am not sure as I have never played a Druid seriously which is why I have posted it for criticism.
I will probably tr a two life rogue into this.
