    Default Few questions

    Right, I've a few questions, so on with them!

    -> Am I the only one who preferred those class icons from beta over the class icons from live? Idk, this signet look is...ok, while the beta icons clearly showed what the class was about(and they were way more cool imo). Where could I find them?

    -> Now about the builds. What is a good off soul(0 points) for 51 dom/ 24ele? Ofc, I am aiming at the savage control This is what I had in mind: http://rift.magelo.com/en/soultree#h9l8Ag/dGakiOE8GEg/

    -> Further: which one of these justicar builds would you use? http://rift.magelo.com/en/soultree#l...aA6l2Ew/Dk4Ayw or http://rift.magelo.com/en/soultree#q/rkBliF2OGay/Dk4Ayw ?

    -> Onwards with cleric: which one of these cabalist builds would you use? http://rift.magelo.com/en/soultree#q...8/U8kY8/Eka98k or http://rift.magelo.com/en/soultree#q...kY8/EkaR95iB2y ? I am obviously aiming at Akylios and such(Dark/Deep Water aspect).

    -> Can you cast oversaturation on yourself? Will it work?

    -> Yet further with cleric: Is there a good Water based solo build around? Pref with Warden as a main aspect? I was thinking about this: http://rift.magelo.com/en/soultree#Dkigyw/q9kGaG2i8/pA4 but it's too slow to believe! Also, have I identified the proper solo abilities from Warden: Drown(eh...Dehydrate yes!), Geyser, Tidal Surge, Call of the depths, Glass reflection and Oversaturation?

    That would be all! Thanks!

    Well, for starters, you need to realize that any build that goes that deep into Dominator is going to be useless outside of PvP, because Dominator has terrible ST DPS.

    This is because of Justicar's gift, which increases your armor, resistance, and health for every point you put into the soul. If you aren't maxing Justicar, you will take more damage and have less health, and unless you overgear the content to a non-trivial degree, you will get shredded by mobs and bosses.

    Oversaturation is a spell that you cast on enemies, not allies.

    Warden is a healing soul, and as a result it does very, very low DPS. You could solo with it, and because of the self-healing, you would probably never die, but it would also take you forever to kill anything. A real solo build would also never die (because you don't need that much self-healing for soloing), and would kill things an order of magnitude faster.

    Don't worry, I prefer to mostly solo and play chronicles and normal mode instances(not 24 man ones mind you). Endgame and, especially, grinding isn't my forte or my vision of fun. I plan to level my chars to max one by one and then either play normal mode or PvP(or quit ;) ). Oh and there is about a dozen RP reasons why each of my characters has exactly those talent trees. Just for your info ;)
