I'm personally going with a Shaman/Justicar/Druid build and destroying mobs as a melee cleric. End-game build I'm going with and slowly building towards is listed below. One thing I will say about melee clerics though is high burst but sustained is lower than warrior or mage.

I'm going Shaman/Justicar/Warden for mine.

While Druid gives the Shield of the Oak (amazing when paired with the Shaman's ice shield... you will rarely get hit), I can't stand the sight of that faerie (or still going druid and not having it) , and for me, water-based attacks/heals seems to make more sense with the Shaman's elements.

But Shaman for melee DPS, hands down.

I agree with TasteyWheat. I think going with all 3 of the souls with the Faith In Action passive (that buffs your melee power with your spell power) is overkill. I went shaman first, then warden (those early level heals are great for low level survivability) and then finished with Jus.

Generally, though a lot of the soul combos are 3 defensive or 3 offensive, I usually think it's overkill. So far, from what I've seen, you get better results by having 2 of the same sort of soul, 1 acting as primary and the 2nd as a booster, and 1 different type to cover your weaknesses (often a heal, or a self-defense).

Justicar/Purifier/Shaman is pretty awesome right now.

Shaman for some buffs, purifier for some healing and armor, justicar for the main spec = tank. :D

Do they stack? I figured they're just the same ability.

I just find theres too much overlap with druid/shaman. So its best to go druid/justicar/something or shaman/justicar/something.

Usually warden or inquisitor is a good third choice.
