RJ Dev Tracker

Kervik’s back in action on the official RIFT forums, and his first order of business on Friday was to update the Mage and Cleric communities about some changes in store for both classes. For Mages especially, he’s looking to make a couple of major overhauls to the Warlock soul. Here’s what he had to say about those changes:

Originally posted by Kervik (Source)


Hey all,

First off, my apologies for being absent from this forum for as long as I have been. I dropped the ball on communicating with you all and I’ll work on getting things back to regular communication or at least letting you know if there’s going to be a while that I’ll be absent ahead of time.

To start things back off I’m going to be spending some time taking a look at Warlock. I have some ideas on what changes to make, many from the suggestions you all have been offering in various other threads. I’ll be posting my initial list of the changes I’m looking at early next week, but I want to make sure that I’m understanding your concerns and try to pass on reasons for the “why” behind these changes before/as I announce them. As usual any changes mentioned in this thread are subject to change and aren’t guaranteed to make it to the live servers. They’ll spend time on PTS for people to try them out and give feedback before they make their way to live.

So lets start with the role of the Warlock. Best case scenario I’d like the Warlock to be a high sustained damage soul with low burst. You’ll do consistent damage, but without the spikes that souls such as Pyromancer have. I like the idea of Warlock being very effective when faced with 2 or 3 targets for them to load up and maintain a full set of DoTs on. Feel free to ask questions about other aspects and I’ll answer them as best I can.

For the moment at least I’d like to have list what they’d like out of the Warlock and what they view as the biggest issue wit the soul is. If you’re calling out an issue the soul has currently, give an explanation on specifics of the issue. Even if its been said many times before I’d like to see the reasoning behind things again. And remember, posts that say only “Void Bolt is dumb” or “You suck” are really not what I’m looking for from this.

To temper expectations for any changes resulting from this thread, I’m mostly looking at quality of life type changes rather than a large scale overhaul. Don’t expect the soul to play vastly different from these updates.

For those of you concerned about other souls, I’ll be working on others as things move along with the Warlock. The next one on my list at the moment is Archon.

Kervik’s plans for improving a couple of the Cleric souls are a little more specific. Wardens, especially, will be seeing quite a few adjustments. Keep reading to take a look.

61 inquisitor guide header

Inquisitor is arguably one of the most solid, all-around souls in the game. It can be used in every aspect of the game and perform outstandingly. Whether you’re looking for a decent leveling build to quickly slice through mobs, mash out some serious numbers on the damage meters in endgame raids, dominate Warfronts with fast, hard-hitting bolts or go back and solo old content, Inquisitor has tools for every job! In this guide, I’m going to be showing you how to get the most out of Inquisitor in almost every scenario.

Think of our guides as a popular build database, if you will. We’ll do our best to keep each of the guides updated, but if we fail to do so, drop us a line and we’ll get right to it!

Today we have the Cleric builds ready for your previewing pleasures. You’ll find guides for a bit of everything. If there’s any spec you feel we’re particularly lacking, feel free to let us know.

Guide Cleric Healing

The Sentinel Cleric soul is a versatile healing soul that can be used for either 5-mans or raiding. It offers a wide range of single target, bursty heals with various cast times and a decent amount of AoE healing that can even do well in a raid with the right soul pairing. Sentinel also has a good number of cooldowns and tank cooldowns. In a 5-man Expert, it makes an excellent solo healing soul. In a raid, Sentinels can offer some of the versatility of a Chloromancer as well as a palette of useful cooldows for progression attempts.

There are a few solid Sentinel specs out there, but here are two– the 61 Sentinel / 12 Warden / 3 Inquisitor and the 61 Sentinel / 15 Purifier / 0 Warden. The spec with Warden is more suited for healing in a raid environment while the spec with Purifier is better for 5-man Experts and other smaller group content.

Note: This guide is based off a guide originally found on the official RIFT forums and written by Ahov.

Guide Cleric Raid Healing

The best Cleric raid healing soul in RIFT currently is the Warden soul. While Chloromancers are arguably more efficient raid healers in general and provide more DPS for their group, Warden healers have a lot of tricks up their sleeves when it comes to quickly recovering from raid damage spikes that are both quick and relentless. Warden cooldowns are also some of the best available. Wardens are also very mobile healers, which can be extremely helpful in many fights.

The hardest part about playing a Warden effectively is learning which heals to cast when and figuring out how to predict the many different types of damage you’ll see in a given raid. Choosing a Warden spec, at least, is pretty simply. Here’s one of the most effective builds– the 61 Warden / 12 Sentinel / 3 Inquisitor build.

Guide Cleric Raid Shielding

For many progression fights, having a Cleric Purifier in the raid group is extremely helpful due to the Purifier’s ability to shield players and thus absorb a great deal of damage. There are a few variants of this healing spec out there, but this is one version that effectively gives you everything you need to throw up as many raid shields as possible while giving you plenty of options for high HPS (healing-per-second) and raid utility.

Here’s the build– the 54 Purifier / 21 Sentinel / 1 Inquisitor spec. This spec complements Chloromancer HPS with raw shielding and focusing ability. When there are periods of burst damage on a few but preferably one player, Purifier is often the ideal role. The spec also brings Empowering Light, an AoE cleanse, and Sterilize, a complete single-target cleanse.

Guide cleric leveling melee

When solo leveling a Cleric, it’s usually best to use a build that mixes together decent damage-per-second (DPS) along with great survivability options that give you plenty of options for taking on tough mobs or groups of mobs. One of the best solo leveling builds is currently Druid mixed with a bit of Justicar and Shaman. The following build is one such example of this combination– the 50 Druid / 16 Justicar / 10 Shaman. Now, leveling builds are generally a little more fluid when it comes to personal choice. There are a lot of other awesome leveling builds out there, so feel free to use this build as a loose guide.

This build focuses on melee combat and uses the Druid tanking Satyr to take the brunt of the damage you’ll run into. Besides leveling, this build is pretty awesome for farming dynamic content, quests, and dailies at level 60. It does okay during dungeons while leveling, but you’ll probably want to to switch to a pure DPS spec for doing 5-man dungeons and other group content at level 60.

guide cleric melee dps

When it comes to pure damage-dealing (DPS) options on a Cleric, there are currently only a few viable options if you really want the most bang for your buck when it comes to raids and other endgame group content. This spec– the 61 Shaman / 10 Druid / 5 Inquisitor spec– is currently one of them. This is a melee DPS spec, and is one of the hardest Cleric specs to master currently.

It can be used while leveling, but it’s probably better-geared toward a pure DPS spec for raids and other endgame group content. Since it’s melee, you’re going to only want to use it on bosses that can be safely melee’d for the majority of the fight. That said, if you are able to safely melee during a boss fight and understand this spec well, you should be able to do more damage with this spec than using an Inquisitor spec.

Guide Cleric AOE Farm

There are many options when it comes to Cleric builds that are great for general questing, reputation farming, or rift hunting, but one of most versatile options that’s also extremely multi-pull friendly is a solo Defiler build. Here’s one such example– the 59 Defiler / 17 Cabalist / 0 Justicar. Farming builds are generally a little more fluid when it comes to personal choice. There are a lot of other awesome leveling builds out there even using the same base souls, so feel free to use this build as a loose guide.

This build focuses on ranged combat and uses the Defiler tanking Beacon to take the brunt of the damage you’ll run into. Besides AoE farming, this build is pretty awesome for farming dynamic content, quests, and dailies at level 60 as well as supporting groupmates in Greater Hunt rifts and 5-mans dungeons. You’ll have quite a few options for healing, which lends to the great versatility of this spec. The build also does well for leveling, but it may not be completely practical for AoE farming until around level 30.
