Does Lightroom user need Photoshop?

I'm an amateur/enthusiast and have been using and learning Lightroom for about 3 years - getting better but still have plenty to learn. I also use several Nik plug-ins.

My goal is to produce quality images for printing (I use Epson 3880) - mainly landscapes, nature, wildlife, some sports - for me, friends, family, etc.
Question: What will PS allow me to do that I can't do in LR?

I understand the clone-stamp tool, content-aware editing, panoramas, and HDR may be valuable. I also know there are myriad other things that can be done in PS that I would probably never use.
Any other thoughts or suggestions before I spend $600+?
When do you leave LR for special editing in PS?
Thanks for your help.
