If you’re looking to try your hand at tanking on a Cleric, you’re in luck. Justicars are pretty damn awesome. As full tanks, Justicars are capable of tanking anything and everything that RIFT has to offer. They’re also the healing tanks of the game, which means you’ll be able to help raid heal a bit as well as use your multitude of AoE healing tricks in order to help grab aggro on mobs that are running loose. Justicars excel at both AoE tanking and single target tanking. There are many possible Justicar builds out there, but here is one common variation that’s ideal for progression tanking and most other endgame content– the 61 Justicar / 9 Inquisitor / 6 Shaman.
This build gives you the maximum amount of mitigation and Endurance while providing plenty of raid utility and the Shaman’s Ride the Lightning ability, which is a handy mobility boost. For other variations of popular builds, you can check out this Justicar/Cabalist build with added magical mitigation, this Justicar/Inquisitor (+ Purge) build, or this Justicar/Defiler build that gives you a self-cleanse.
