    Default 43 Oracle/31 sham/2 Warden Cleric pvp bursting

    Hello I get a lot of tells in game about what build ive been running.

    The build http://rift.magelo.com/en/soultree#Y...kg/lkOFawB2/qd

    my play style is to simply survive and burst down some nice dps. I don't use many of the shaman's ability's except one buff and the debuffs.

    I have only a few macros, Rage of the north+ battle Fury and then spam Glacial Insignia. in the down time from the macro I use debuffs and keep the raid healed with Emblem of Alacrity and alternate with Overflowing Renewal I have that on a macro for cast @self to keep myself topped off at all times, the overflow is always going to the team. Emblem of Alacrity makes overflow renewal an instant cast.

    if I find my team or myself in danger I will use my Rage of the north and battle furry to spam overflowing Renewal.

    Hot bar skills are:

    Glacial Insignia
    Emblem of Alacrity
    Glacial Shield
    wasting Insignia - must keep this on all times for raid buffs and shields
    Overflow Renewal
    Emblem of Pain
    Discerning Wave
    Numbing Cold
    Rage of the North
    Battle Furry
    Cleansing Chant

    Buffs:

    Boon of Resurgence
    Boon of Vitality
    Inspiration of the Keep
    Inspiration of Battle
    Marshaled Favor
    Courage of the Bear

    Macro's:

    Dps as you shield

    #show Emblem of Alacrity
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Glacial shield
    cast Emblem of Alacrity

    Burst your Glacial Insignia or Overflowing Renewal with this

    #show Battle furry
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Rage of the North
    cast Battle Furry

    Keep your Overflowing Renewal as a @self cast

    #show Overflowing Renewal
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast @self Overflowing Renewal


    I hope you all enjoy the build. Feedback welcomed
    P.S if your running out of mana your doing it right.

    Nice guide, but i think your missing a trick in not taking tainted emblems.

    I thought that aswell till I tested it with and without tainted emblems. it takes more time to set all that up than you have in a pvp instance. im more based on speed and reaction.

    if your using battle furry you don't have much time to set up emblems when your spamming Glacial insignia for the duration of battle furry

    Battle Fury applies all emblems and they persist for the duration thus allowing you to get a RotN modified Tainted Emblem proc from every single Glacial Insignia you cast during BF. There is no setup.

    Tainted Emblems is passive right? Are you saying you get the Spell Power based add whether or not you have it talented?

    No, his reasoning for not having it talented was that you have to set up your emblems prior to battle fury to get the Tainted Emblems proc. I was only explaining that Battle Fury applies all emblems on cast and causes them to persist which means there is no reason not to take the TE talent as it is free damage for no added management.

    Gotcha, that's how I thought it worked.

    Just wanted to correct myself here. Tainted Emblems is not affected by RotN's crit's increase but it is still worth it to take it in this build over some of the other point allocations as it adds significantly more to your burst and damage outside of burst.

    So did you killed a mage perhaps? maybe?

    You cant kill a damn thing with cleric hybrids. Especially warriors and rogues.

    This is working as intended, warlords are not supposed to die.

    For more utility and less one trick pony, try:
    http://rift.magelo.com/en/soultree#q...Yv2G5akA5h0/nf

    Same principle: Hit battle fury, then either Glacial Insignia spam or Overflowing Renewal spam when you wish to become a hero.

    During the downtime, you can hit Tidal Surge+Discerning Wave for team support, and for positioning help, use Crushing Waves to punt clusters off hills or whatnot. The spec works incredibly well when paired up with a main healer. Between shielding, healing, moving opposing players around, and nuking, you can live up to the support mantra. And with the passive bonuses you give your team just by existing and using insignias, it really is a decent hybrid.

    Every Oracle dps hybrids and 61 pts Oracle spec is dead weight in PvP 99.99999999999% of the time.


    The chances of a pug PvP roster consisting entirely of effective players to justify the benefits of a support class such as an oracle are so minuscule that it is exponentially better to go full dps or full nonWarden healing.



    Folks whom run a support class do so mainly because they are incapable of performing as a dps or heal specialist. But make no mistake about it, any support role minus BM or Archon are doing a great disservice to your team. Running druids also fall under this category.



    For those with the delusion of purchasing the Oracle, assuming it would be a worthy PvP soul, you might have better luck getting your money refunded rather than the wishful thinking.
