    Default riftstalker question

    I've had some issues lately with someone healing me while I tank. He's warden mostly I think and I tend to die like nobodies business.

    I've not had this issue with other clerics. Yet this guy does a fine job of keeping a warrior tank alive. So there seems to be a bit of a problem with being kept alive until my buffs are up, and even with them up the hots just aren't doing it.

    Any comments welcome!

    Blow your 51 point immunity, or invest in quicksteps.

    I found wardens were not a good match for the ramp-up of Riftstalker tanks. A Purifier cleric, chloro... anyone really, is better. The warden needs to layer a lot on you for them to be rolling, and a riftstalker is slower to get mitigation going, and yet quick to start taking dmg and aggro'n. Using Rift Prison on the hard hitting mob buys time, and then using sidesteps (bladedancer) or your 30% mitigation power in RS tree will buy a little more time.

    Yeah I would normally save those abilities for oh **** moments but every pull turns into one, even a 3 mob pull in expert FC had me reaching for them

    Guess I'll just have to suck it up and slow down

    Or just ask your warden to get a Purifier role (great for keeping 1 person alive, with extra shielding for you early on).
