    Default What is the most powerful solo class in Rift?

    I want to start a new character in Rift and I wanted your guys opinion on what would be the best class character to make so that I can play the game and kick *** by my self. So pretty much no matter what enemy I encounter I will be able to handle it on my own... Let me know what you guys think?

    Cleric is most self sufficient by a fair margin. Also strong in pvp and needed lategame for heals.

    Chloro/elems can solo most elites with ease and rogues with pets solo farm well.

    Look up the Duracell cleric though, that is the winner for sure.

    Mage or cleric.

    Either a Necro/Lock (mage), Chlr/ock (mage) or a Duracleric (cleric), Inqisicar (cleric).

    All very resistant and next to zero downtime. The Duraclerics are so strong, I died 4 times on Cleric while leveling. Just FOUR times.

    Oh an cleric equipment is the most plentiful in the game. So you gear out the fastest of all classes.

    mmm which ***** do you kick with a chloro/lock? maybe tickle? lock has zero burst, against a rank 6 target he wont even notice you exists if not as a free favor - ok you'll be a bit tougher to kill than the regular mage but what's the point when you cant kill back anything with valor?

    hrm

    although duracell cleric and cuisinart rogue level fast, if you just want the most powerful soloing class in the game, it's a mage

    specifically two builds - necro/lock and chloro/necro. the latter is for soloing elites that other classes cant dream of touching.

    Cleric is good either dura or Icar, SD + reparation =win, for Icar can be squishy, but has access to an aoe fear for a time out, by the same token CoO + reparation keeps you goin as well.

    for pve, Ele/Chloro is hands down the best overall solo build in the game. You can solo anything, although it is boring and will take some time, but you can kill higher level elites, multiple same level elites, and even some dungeon bosses.

    Option 1
    1.Roll a mage.
    2.Buy multiple specs
    3.???
    4.Profit

    Option 2
    1.Roll a cleric.
    2.Buy multiple specs
    3.???
    4.Profit

    I think option 2 is better all around, but option 1 includes a few elites I'm not sure the clerics can deal with. (even though they can take on a surprising array of content solo for a non-tankin-pet class.

    *edit* in my book, the mage is more FUN. To keep a cleric going through swarms of beatdown, there are very few buttons involved. Mages are more responsive.

    I know my Necro/Chloro can solo the group quest in SS. Have to kill some elites first to get him summoned, no problem there as I can take 3 elites on at once and not worry about anything, then you summon a level 52 elite and he's just a pushover. 52k hp may take a little while to whittle down but I do it with ease.

    The spec I use is: http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0z...zo0c.xxckVpk0s

    I use the Tank pet and keep Necrosis, Looming Demise, and cast Grave Rot whenever it's off CD and enjoy. The Rogue pet may do more DPS but the Tank pet is no pushover, he actually has the highest damage attack of the 3. Then all you have to do is Nature's Touch > Ruin > Vile Spores. Haven't met an elite yet that I couldn't solo.
