    Default Question on builds

    Currently level 15. Right now I have a Cabalist/Shaman build I am running for ranged DPS and some Melee DPS if things get this close. I also have Warden for the small HoT in case I have adds to give myself some breathing room.

    I know, from reading, that this isn't going to play well later on so what roles/builds gives me a lot of this current survivability later on?

    Druid/Justicar is generally the most survivable solo spec. Defiler/Cabalist works well at higher levels for better AoE damage.

    Mixing and matching classes in Rift can make you either super OP or a few thousand pixels worth of suck. Ultimately, it's best to go all out or not at all. If you're looking for survivability, a Justicar with Sentinel/Purifier to back it up will keep you alive throughout the leveling process. During dungeons and raids however, the Justicar's tank buffs severely drain the effectiveness of a Sentinel's heals or a Purifier's Symbols.

    My suggestion would be a Cabalist/Purifier/Justicar combo. The Cabalists' AOE abilities are effective for disposing of enemies all at once if you can do enough damage, while Dark Water is fully spammable and does quite a bit of damage. Use the purifier to bolster your flimsy Cabalist's durability with Symbol of the Flame and heal with Healing Flare. Put 5 points in Justicar for that ever so needed 10% endurance bonus.

    With that, you've got a perfect solo class good in just about all areas.

    Hope this helps

    Full Defiler is the most versatile and "safe" soloing spec, with Defiler/Cab giving more train and damage potential and Druid/Justicar giving better single-target potential.

    Until you start Storm Legion content, though (Cape Jule and Pelladane, level 50), just play whatever you want and have fun.
