    Default Best DPS class

    What class combination is best for single target DPS? I played a DPS cleric during the beta and did well.

    Having played them all up to 20 or so in beta, I'd say the order goes like this:
    1. Rogue
    2. Mage
    3. Warrior
    4. Cleric
    From a "best possible DPS souls equipped" perspective. Also bear in mind that Rogue DPS is more spike damage than sustained damage, although Rogue sustained damage is quite good.

    However, the difference is going to be relatively small. This isn't a game where a bad DPS class exists. At worse, you end up with mediocre DPS. I've played MMORPGs where slowly slogging your way through fights is the price you pay for durability, but Rift isn't one of them. Even amongst the Clerics here, the Inquisitor can do some really cool things with soul drain when conditions are right.

    I was just playing and having fun ;) The correct answer really is all of them as I said above (if you want it to be). I really feel every class and push out the high dps if you spec that way. I've seen clerics do sick melee dmg - and they're the "healing" soul...

    People need to stop thinking about the classes like the old school MMO classes, it's not really the same in rift.

    To be clear, as of Beta 7 Riftblades at 42 were pulling twice the DPS of any other DPS class.

    I was thinking of rolling a mage. But after reading a few threads, it looks like the mage isn't the glass cannon I thought it could be. Nerfs inc?

    I was going to say the same thing but i think with the "fixes or nerfs" to warrior classes especially riftblade, i would have to say it goes to rouge or mage. But then that depends on pvp single target dps or pve single target dps.
