    Default Struggling to level

    I'm having a tough time getting to level up. I feel very squishy and can barely take 3 mobs at the same time.
    Critiques on my build are very much welcome.

    assuming you want to be a caster and are level 26.
    go 26 into inq for fanaticism. every 45 seconds cast fanaticism before your sanction heretic - insta crit every 3rd mob or so.
    spam boj; you can spec into life and death concord if you prefer; i am not a fan of the way it is currently working so I skip it and instead put 5/5 castigation.

    drop cabalist to 8 points so you still have decay/obliterate/sigil of power.
    keep warden/purifier/sentinel at 0.

    you will still be squishy.

    and if you want to aoe at level 26 which you seem to want.... justicar, 10 pts.
    shaman/inq works okay, but inquis/just/sent works better.

    Contempt isn't worth it until you have Mental Resilience.

    Shield yourself, pull 4 mobs with vex, soul drain, then use sanction and boj to clean up.

    They nuked Cabalist into the ground.

    Here is a not-so-thought out level 26 build:

    Use a two-hander. You are basically invincible against physical damage and have a full-heal, Reprieve, if things go bad. Use Even Justice to mass kill mobs. Recharge mana with Purpose.

    This isn't a great build, but it is functional and doesn't rely on one power that isn't up nearly enough like Cabalist.

    Use Mien of Honor for the build I gave.

    DO NOT use Mien of Leadership.

    Default Cleric Spec

    Due to the nature of the game, I would not personally advise using specs that do not burst or allow for substantial survivability. My pet peeve with this game is the incessant aggro mobs have, and the density of said mobs. To counter this I choose a plain and simple pet class for all my archtypes. Works extremely efficiency imo. If you are really against a pet class, which some people are; go with Justicar or something of the like, coming out of a fight against 3 mobs fairly untouched is more valuable than a single nuke spec unfortunately. Strange enough as well, I have had a easier time soloing with a BM than a necromancer or elementalists. For some reason the cat holds better aggro then the tank pets.....

    This is actually working out pretty well! Thanks a ton for the suggestions everyone.
