I really just like to play in the open world mostly solo, working on masteries and world completion, etc. I'm a returning player, so I have all of the HoT and PoF areas to complete. I'm just wondering whether Druid is good in that respect, and by "good" I mean whether it's survivable and does good damage.. I don't want to have to spend all day killing everything since I know it's used for healing. I want to know before I spend all of those points in it over soul beast. I like having the pet so soul beast doesn't interest me all that much, so I'll probably just run ranger otherwise.
