    Default Cleric Build Needs Advice

    I have been playing the same Cleric build for three years and find it lacking in areas.
    I love Inquisitor, which I have maxed out on the tree. 61 Inq/5 Puri/10 justicar.
    My two current "sidebars" seem to have no real advantage for me.
    With Inquisitor as the main, any advice on what two others should be?
    Would love some help with healing or just basic survival in raid or near raid situations.
    DPS assist would be a dream.
    I am also using only three of my legendary abilities out of five available since I am limited by choices.

    Thanks in advance for insight/input...

    Try Druid and Runeshaper offsouls for much more damage.

    The entire cleric class is lacking in areas. Nearly all of raid bosses, and 100% of PvP comes to mind.

    So if I equip 10 RS and 5 Druid, what should I apply the Soul Tree points on?

    Check the cleric compendium Stickyed at the top of the Cleric guide section. It's there. I personally use Blessing of Penitence instead of Benevolent Presence though, otherwise you need to go into melee once a minute to refresh fervent strike.

    Sing... you were right. I purchased Runeshaper soul and built a 61 Inquisitor/10 Runeshaper/5 Druid and it increased my top three attacks by an average of 40,000 per, not to mention gave me additional and valuable attack options.

    Thank you for that...

    Any input of Cleric Mastery settings?

    However, even though my DPS was increased, I lost serious other stats as a result of the rebuild.
    In the area of 30K armor/2000 resistance of all/and healing abilities on myself and other group members....
    Not to mention, I'm pulling 150K to 175K DPS according to the Rift Meter...
    That is so pathetic, I'm ashamed to post it...
    Level 70 Cleric
    Armor is four pieces of Vostigar Veterans and two of Smolder
    Steel.
    All essences are level three or better and maxed out on upgrades to infusion of level 15.
    Wisdom is at 34000+
    Spell Power is at 57000+
    Armor is at 294000
    Health is at 322000
    Crit is at 20 per cent and I am working on that...
    Hit is at 2375...

    Any advice on solving the DPS problem?

    1. You arent gonna dps and heal same time.
    2. for the masteries, see the above referenced thread. it has those too.
    3. you need to read the macros and setup macros.
    4. really, read the thread for the spec!

    The build referenced in the guides section has all you should need to get started.

    The biggest increase to your DPS will come from crit power essences from raid rifts and upgrading your eternal weapon.

    As far as survivability Inquisitor does fairly well. If you're taking damage pop Judicial Privilege. If you need a self heal channel Soul Stream on yourself. You even have a stun and AoE fear for soloing.

    If you need a strong solo spec make another soul that's 61 shaman 10 druid and 5 Justicar. Fairy healer legendary for druid and salvation for Justicar, and enjoy feeling immortal.

    Dps tips for Inquisitor...

    Cast seal of pain after every sanction heretic.
    Keep the fervent strike and Inscribe fate up
    Don't let the mental resilience buff fall off. It's applied from your channels.
    Your big damage comes from your radical coalescence CD block. Be smart with its usage during fights.
