    Default Support Classes

    I tried searching for this and have had no luck.

    Is there a listing any where of what souls allow you to queue as support? I know bard and cholor but not sure what the others may be. Also, is there an official listing of how many points you need to devote to that tree to be considered? I know it changes with level but haven't seen anything official.

    Bard.
    Archon.
    Dominator.
    Justicar.

    For Bard, Archon and Dominator you need to have either more points in them than other trees in the build, or if they're equal to another soul in your build it needs to be the centre soul. (At least at low level... Not sure about higher level since I don't go less than 44 in them)

    Justicar requires 22 points at level 50 to enable queueing as support.
    Sonora - 50 Rogue - 8 Bladedancer/51 Riftstalker/7 Ranger - All round tank build.
    Teralia - 50 Warrior - 22 Reaver/24 Warlord/20 Paladin - A fun to play AoE threat build.
    Karis - 46 Mage - 24 Chloromancer/27 Pyromancer/10 Warlock - A high burst support heal PvP/Solo build.
    Tarille - 50 Cleric - 5 Templar/27 Warden/34 Sentinel - A powerful AoE healing PvP build.

    I wish they would define support a little better. Clerics don't have a support soul, yet they can queue as one. Warlord needs to lose all the tanking crap and get made into an actual support soul.

    chloromancer seems like its q-ing as support lately too i think?

    As said earlier Dominator is listed as support but I also wouldn't recommend it for any lfg pve situation, it has very bad viability in pve.
    bard, and chloro probably end up helping in 5ms the most (in my opinion).

    Bard should lose all the healing crap and Archon should lose all the DPS crap, too.

    Why make "Warlord" pure support when it can tank AND support at the same time? That seems like a nerf to me.
