    Default Summary of cleric souls?

    Hi,

    I've been playing a warrior in betas, but my group now is looking for a healer. So, I'm looking to learn the cleric class in the next beta. Can anyone summarize what the various cleric souls' strengths and weaknesses are, or point me to somewhere I can find that info.

    Thanks.

    Type into search 'summary of cleric souls' there is is a good, in-depth thread on it.

    Basically the shortest and most concise I can put it:

    Souls:

    Healing
    Warden: Heal over time
    Sentinel: Heavy single target heals with some aoe.
    Purifier: Medium single target heals with many forms of mitigation shields.

    Melee DPS
    Druid: Nature damages, has a few pets for utility. Later attacks can debuff.
    Shaman: Strong Direct damage with many different buffs.

    Tank
    Justicar: Tanks decently (1h+shield/2handed up for debate), casts heals while tanking. Think Warrior Priest from Warhammer.

    Ranged DPS
    Inquisitor: Single target damage with some aoe.
    Cabalist: Heavy AOE damage focus with some single target.
    We don't want a game, we want a second home. We play for escape.

    You know you could play a Mage with Chloromancer if you don't want to be a Cleric but still want to heal.

    Thanks for the info guys, especially that link Uiin - I can't believe I didn't find that when I searched.

    Thanks - I know, but I don't want to play a squishy healer at this point. I liked warrior and essentially want to play a warrior-type healer. Should have said that up front. I never played one in WoW, but from what Ungodly says, it sounds like maybe Justicar should be the base of my build. I'll look into that.
