    Default Low Level Cleric Grind/Quest Help

    First, I have used the search and everything I have found are level 50 builds. I have played around with various specs and so far they all seem mediocre at best at this level (23). Part of this is likely because until clerics can AOE efficiently, they grind/quest slower then the rogue/mage I am used to.

    I realize I am not going to be mowing through mobs like a necro/lock but there has got to be something better then the premature Justicar spec I am currently using. If there is someone in a similiar spot as me, or someone who has already gone through this process, please post the spec you are running!

    To those who have been 50 for more then a few weeks, your input is equally appreciated it's just a lot of you have been out of the noob levels for so long you may of forgotten what you used to level with and that these levels flew by, they didn't, these levels suck!

    - To those feeling really helpful, specific specs would be much appreciated! Solo/Tank/Group Heals I don't expect this but some of you maybe bored at work! Ultimately I am looking for Solo Quest/Grind build for a level 23.

    So, thanks to those who post something useful, to the rest of you troll on...

    for melee builds:

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=00nja.yxz0z..Vq0c
    shaman/sent/druid - 16/0/14

    jolt/fated blow/glory of the chosen everytime they pop.
    bombard/massive blow/combined effort/trickster spirit/lightning hammer/crushing blow
    use mana regen on hit (gives you 2) as necessary, use 2 shields alternating between start of fights, use 2x heals as necessary.

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=00nja.Vxz..Vq0Vh
    shaman/sent/druid - 11/0/19
    similar, but you don't have the 2nd mana regen or jolt, but you have eruption of life & crag hammer.
    fated blow on cooldown
    bombard/eruption of life/combined effort/massive blow/trickster spirit/fervent strike

    on both, you can remove bombard & cast it as necessary if you want- it's ranged & does great damage early on.
    Also, you have the lesser fairy for heals/nuking.

    for ranged:

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=00edr.m.Vtkbo.Vuz
    warden/inq/justicar - 4/16/10
    4 pts in warden for knockback when you need a moment on single mobs.
    vex everything,sh on cooldown, purge as necessary, waterjet spam when you're moving, boj when you are standing still, bod if it procs. aggressive renewal on cooldown. keep warden hot running on yourself and use doctrines for other healing. you will likely run oom. you can soul drain for aoe farming but you're going to be taking alot of damage while its on cooldown and you dont have anything else that's aoe.

    alternate ranged spec: http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=00eor.m.VxV0o.Vuz
    warden/cab/justicar: 4/16/10
    harder build to use as alot of abilities will be hitting multi targets but it does work. also harder to build convictions as you have to use justicar (light) abilites for them. basic rotation is distorted shadows, decay, obliterate, waterjet

    third ranged spec: i actually used this one alot in 20's.
    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=00ejo.Vo.VRxz.V0V
    warden/sent/cabal: 6/14/10
    lightbolt, banish, distorted shadows, decay, life's vengeance, obliterate, waterjet
    heal as needed, kite as needed. sigil of power every cooldown.
    touch the light->healing grace (or current) if you are in trouble

    edit: added disclaimer.
    i respecced alot in the 20's - these I recall I enjoyed playing. try mixing inquisitor in instead of warden as 2 pts for vex/SH if you find you aren't using waterjet/healingspray/knockback.

    Really? Having issues?

    I did Inquisitor/justicar/shaman starting around level 14, am now 20;

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=00drn.Vxkb.Vz.V0z

    And I can AoE grind the HELL out of things. I've made about 30 plat just grinding those 6 levels (as a butcher, that is) just from vendoring everything I pick up. I guess it also has to do with where you're grinding and what you're grinding on. Granted, I'm not questing, either.

    The issue with this spec is finding the perfect balance of how many mobs to pull. Too many, and you die. Too few, and Soul Drain isn't as effective. I only took Glacial Shield because some of the mobs I attempted at one point were killing me before I could even get 4 of them together O_o

    Vex everything, Soul Drain, rinse repeat. This build just gets better the higher you level it; there's a post here on the Cleric forums (actually came here to post on that thread, but can't currently find it) that expains the macros, etc for this build. It's really great in my opinion.

    EDIT: Here's the original thread:
