Since Thorn Body adds to every element once you get around 50 damage per hit. Not insane, but pretty ok so long as you don’t compete with the saint in damage olympics. With trips and all that should be around 400DPR. You also have Pounce with a smilodon form, and more than enough AC to take a charge, so you won’t waste time running around.
Early game you support a pet and try not to face-tank too much. We’ve taken leopard mostly cause it gains AC/AB/Damage from just one cat’s grace, so we can have buffs too. We gain our first form roughly at the same time we get to A2 and start finding arcane protectors(and as our lame AB finally catches up to us). Wolf is not amazing, but it’s better than sitting around. You'd also need to get Jubi asap and take infusion first order of business on him, cause shield spell will do you some good. We’re mostly a tanky boy with a pet for now. It gets significantly better later as we’d be able to finally cast in the shapeshift at 13 and as such can cast magic fangs on ourselves. If you are ever stuck, druid comes with a lot of cheese. First of all spikes. Those have no saves against damage and do pretty decent damage. Just get your fast pet out there and kite stuff around those. It’s cheesy and it works. Then you also get creeping doom that does roughly the same automatically - keeping one of those ready is a good idea.
I'd be able to drag the thing through unfair, so I guess it's viable for that
Think that’s pretty much it. If you find something missing - blame the damned fey.
