The Cleric Conundrum!

Post  Aurec on Mon Feb 21, 2011 4:21 pm

Over the past two betas, I have decided with 100% that I wish to play a healing cleric, however I am unsure on what soul to go and how deeply, each of the three main healing souls offers something of it’s own that I enjoy. However the choice is rather difficult, so I am drafting in all the members of this guild to help.

I am rather certain that the best combination for the souls is Sentinel/Warden/Purifier. However beyond that I am unsure which to be the main soul...
I have spent many hours upon the rift talent calculators, slaving away, dismissing many combinations, including have a 0 point druid spec for the pet. I have made a few promising builds and would like people to either evaluate, giving good and bad points about each, saying what they think would be best; or to simply post a build they would think better.

And to all those who help, thank you. And see you in a few days.

With the ability to have four roles and switch on the fly, the days of main healers who do nothing else are gone by......

When soloing theres really two choices depending on playstyle:

For Meleers its Druid/shaman with some healing soul to reduce downtime , prefferably purifier or warden.

Ranged DPSers usually have inquisitor main with subbing in Cabalist for DPS boost.

A nice hybrid melee/range/healing for soloing would be Shaman/Inquisitor/Warden.

In said biul you pull with ranged ability , cast dots, cast Hots on yourself and then melee the mobs down when they reach you.


Now for group PvE and raids it gets trickier.

Healers go different soul combinations according to what the raid needs.

IE. A cleric has two main roles, A warden,Purifier, Sentinel. with emphasis on purifier and warden for main tank healing.

A raid healer would have a role specializing in Sentinel with subbing in warden.

Ideally you would have two or more healing roles switching according what the raid needs.

If ya wanna try tanking go full 51 points justicar Smile

Hope this help, ask for more information if ya need help with builds Smile cheers

Thanks for that, however I've already come across this. I am wishing for people to evaluate the builds I am planning, because I have no idea what one to choose because each looks so promising

Guessing something like this for main tank healing:

Otherwise a 51/15/0 would work too....

For raid healing call me stupid for going hybrid but i figure
