    Default An alternative build to this based on the same idea

    I would suggest this as an alternative to the build you have put forth.

    The build: http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=00...Eubz0RIRczG.-7

    #show Bolt of Radiance
    cast Bolt of Radiance
    cast Strike of Judgment

    This is the only macro that is important to the function of this build. It could not be more simple to use, and effective for what it presumes to be. This build is not intended to be the topmost single target damage that a melee Cleric can put out. If you want that, look at 61 shaman. What this build will allow you to do is to simplify your rotation, and increase your survivability for solo grinding and pvp.
    The playstyle should be evident since it is as basic a set of abilities as you can get for a cleric build. Use a two hander. Do not use Jolt because it does very poor damage unless you spec into all of the increases to air damage and crit chance, and since they put it on the GCD its not worth using in this build. Do not use Crushing Blow, even with the buff from Frostbite this will not do as much damage as your fully buffed Strike of Judgment and does not generate convictions, or benefit from Salvation. Convictions are the big deal with this build. You can heal yourself reasonably well with your Doctrine of Bliss, and do fantastic damage with Hammer of Duty. Do your best to use Hammer of Duty when you have 7 convictions. And take advantage of your buffed/cooldown reduced Massive Blow (by way of Pattern of Violence and Frostbite). Use Rage of the North on cooldown and remember that your life based attacks give you two convictions when they crit. You will need to use your Hammer of Duty to burn them off, this will give you a considerable damage burst for those pesky healers. Don't forget you have two interrupts. Exploit them.
    Decide whether or not you want to take Deep Freeze, or Just Defense with your last point. One will give you a nice shield, the other will give you a second ghetto stun and a boost to damage. In order to maintain the integrity of this build you will not have much freedom with the talent points, but move what you can where you like. Don't compromise your core abilities, or the lack of diversity of your arsenal will be your downfall.

    Please don't give this build a cheesy name...

    Default Adendum

    Take the points out of Devout Deflection. This talent is pure garbage and isn't good even for questing. Put them in Shield of Faith instead and just take the damage reduction.

    I kinda like the OP's spec. It allows for flexibility between range and melee dps.
    I run a deep druid / justicar spec myself (when questing) and on some zone event boss fights that are extremely melee-unfriendly, I really wish I could go range without changing specs.

    Default Nice build!

    I never post on the forums, but just wanted to thank you for this build and say I've been using the Just Seer build (went from 50-60) and don't get me wrong that build is awesome, but I was getting tired of it. Just tried this build and man it kills way faster than Just Seer, probably has a bit less survivability but really it's not an issue unless you really love pulling multiple elites at a time. All in all a great balance between dmg and survivability with no downtime, plus the added utility of going range when necessary,
