Dual device build question?

Hi, I am currently dual boxing a Druid and mage and had a couple of questions about my build.

The Druid is mostly support, with only stinging swarm for damage. My idea was to have my mage go max ice blast, ice attune, ice shards, and cloak of fire. I know cloak is generally a pretty bad skill, but with the full support of my Druid, my mage should be able to tank 4-7 enemies at once, making cloak more effective than usual. That way I have 3 forms of AoE damage, and could clear rooms pretty quickly.

I just wanted to ask if that is something that would work, because I know traditionally you always want to have lure of ice.

While an ice build can generally one-shot mobs at lower levels, if you're aoe training you'll want to be using firestorm. It's much quicker and you'll be able to finish off mobs without waiting as long for cooldown. You will want lures, but don't have to have them maxed completely when leveling at lower levels. I would only use cloak if you have extra points after everything else.

I would even say eboost over cloak because of how quickly dps druids run out of energy
But I +1 the idea of fire over ice, but, BUT if your main toon is Druid and your slightly new to dual logging, the longer CD’s of ice skills may make ice making easier for a second toon.
Also +1 to using the lures, you’re going to want a lvled elemental lure (fire or ice, whichever you pick) as well as magic lure. A Druid in magic lure is pretty op.

I don’t love cloak, but if you found a way to make good use of it keep doing it if it’s working!
