    Default Cleric tanking on Ituziel

    *Moving this thread here*

    Last night on Ituziel I was taking more damage than I was used to even with improved gear since the last time I've tanked him.

    His kick would hit me for more than my health pool, about 23k. His Word would hit me for about 32k even if I had a 51-puri shield on me.

    During the encounter, it was very weird. His kicks would hit me between 15k and one-shot me. I understand that the boss does more damage at 65% and 35%? But this was happening before we'd even get to 65%.

    I really don't want to blame others or the game, but rather myself for my failure. After looking at the damage taken logs, my warrior tank ally would take about 50% less damage and he's not as geared as me.

    I'm asking if any cleric tanks out there have had a similar issue and what you've been doing to avoid getting one-shot by the kick and word. Thanks a lot!

    That is very strange especially when you consider that clerics have similar mitigation numbers to warriors and rogues, but theirs is entirely passive. There are no short duration buffs to make sure are up.

    I would check if your archon was powerdraining.

    Hi, if you can upload a zipped file of your combat log, I'll take a look at the encounter and see if I can figure out what's going on.

    I'm not sure how to do this. Can you help?

    I'm looking a screenshot of part of a combat log and it says:

    "51-Puri" Ancestral Slumber dissipates from me
    "51-Puri" Ward of Ancestors fades from me
    Word hit me for 26,769 (4914 overkill, 971 absorbed)

    Before the encounter, our 51-puri's ward of ancestor is about 3k shield. Why am I only absorbing 971?
    I've omitted the name of my 51-puri because of forum rules.

    I can't edit but I meant the ward is like 1988 shield and his ancestral flame is like 3k shield.

    Well, compress the file with either 7-zip or Win-rar

    Upload the compressed file to somewhere like sendspace.com

    I apologize, I meant both shields are like 3k I guess. Either way, I'm just curious as to why I'm only absorbing 971.

    My main concern is the kick, though.

    Probably in your Rift folder.

    I looked there, clicked combat log, and I did a search for Word and nothing came up.

    I don't think I have the combat log you need unfortunately.

    Are there any suggestions someone has to tank this fight as a cleric? Like, cooldown rotations and when to use them?

    Just Defence, Resplendent Embrace for when I get hit by a wave. Every other cooldown someone else deals with (such as HC or 51 Puri CD)

    I tank Ituz with less gear than you (going by health pool) so that shouldnt be an issue.
    Just to check you are using one of the 51/3/12 specs? both are about the same in terms of eHP at this point.

    The largest hits i take from him are around 16k for a reference point. 2 ID armor pieces, 1 HK relic, rest epics and the relic shield from aky so as you can see not crazy gearing by any standards.

    Just defense wont be up for every word you eat but it should be there every 2nd. As mentioned save resplendent embrace for times you eat a wave. Other than that theres not much to do, i make sure to my DoA shield up for each word to get that little extra mit.

    Something def seems off in the amount of damage you are taking, i assume your puri has the 4pc crystal and is giving you the 7% buff before the tank swap occurs?
