Oddly, #4 is the most cookiecutter of all those paths.

Minus' path suggestion is a good one to my eyes.

If you want a minor swap, you could take:

Half-Elf / Ranger - Paladin - Bard - Druid

in whichever order you choose.

But again...I am partial to the path that Minus suggested.

Um ranger druid doesn't have curse, poison or plague and your only form of cure light would be a self cast. I don't know why you suggested this but yeah minus is a good path or number 4 due to it having everything needed for solo play.

rogue/paladin/wizard/druid. that is all. if you go any other path, then finally decide to go this path you will be mad at yourself for not doing it to begin with.

It is missing curse/poison/plague, and unless those became more mandatory it is workable.

Paladin, however, has cure light castable for everyone.

Also, see Minus.

No it's not. Do not give bad advice to the new players. If its missing the basics such as armor debuffs and ways to stop mobs regening its a bad class path.

If a path doesn't have curse, poison or plague, is there a way to go around it?

That path(paladin, ranger, druid, bard) lacks a casted variant of poison. Yet, archery does provide a reasonably reliable method of poisoning. With that stated, there are no ways to disease via melee combat like available to poison.

There are a few ways to obtain either a casted disease spell(plague bearer set) do so by scripted melee(barbarian only halberd or throwing a boomerang) which, those scripts occur at a low rate and then finally by using items. All the items cast at low levels. Albeit some allegedly may be multiplied magic by monk...

Finally, curse. Ranger receives faerie fire which is a good debuff. The music skill from bard supplies a few debuff magicks but only a select few these days. Mostly for accuracy and agility negatives.

How does 1. druid monk compare with 2. wizard priest/shaman, or 3. wizard druid paladin?

What do the class paths offer that the others do not? And how does bard/rogue fit into those options

Faerie fire isn't a good debuff, it's basically -3ar at archon. Ranger priest is a much better path, but for the love of god don't recommend druid paired with ranger.

For the sake of discussion, has anyone ever tried Rogue/Pal/Drui/Psi path with any success? It's another path without debuffs...

That used to be great prearmor change since it still had irritation to stop regen. Back when Pk was more active, but it doesn't meet the needs of detect illusion and -armor debuffs etc for modern gameplay

Absolutely don't recommend druid/psi. It can be useful and versatile in forms and on runs, but is terrible in 1v1 pk.

Could someone please explain to me why that path is bad in pk? I would have thought it'd be the otherway around and be worse in pve because of the lack of debuffs. I was under the impression that psi was a great pk class...

EDIT: Also, pk isn't really a necessity in this game, right?

The trend is that psionic and druid is weak for pk because of no debuff spells. It lacks any form of -ar. While psionic does a lot of damage with spells and druid offers a strong regeneration spell set, it cannot do much otherwise.

Ranger paladin druid bard lacks many -ar spells as well. The only debuffs in that path will come from music, which are primarily accuracy and agility. This path also lacks casted disease and poison.

Most of those druid offshoots are hardly playable. The only two readily managed paths with druid are monk and wizard mage selections. Sadly, as it seems a few players would attempt less "reputable" cookie paths if there were more in game methods to support non "standard" paths.
