I'm trying to decide between a cleric or a mage as my first toon for Rift and would like some help. I have zero experience with the game at level 50. I've tried mage (lvl 15), cleric (lvl 19), and warrior (lvl 25). Also tried rogue but it really isn't my cup of tea.
I'd like to roll a main that can do both heals and dps. I really like melee dps and cleric seems like a clear winner...but leveling druid or shaman has been very slow so far (slower than my Pal/RB tank spec) and I'm a little worried about what they are like at level cap in both PvE and PvP.
For rDPS the mage is more fun so far, but I have no idea how either class is for healing.
