    Default Pre 2.3 cleric specs

    I URGE you NOT to READ this Thread as the macros are long & ugly and the specs will be or are out of date or even wrong.
    PLEASE use the other single spec Threads to get the best dps you can, even if that means the blind following the blind.

    Other wise this is a quick look up thread for specs and quick mini guide on what to do; without the endless lists of ability tooltips.


    For best in slot Cleric Dps or Healing Gear: http://www.riftscene.com/database/we...or/cleric_dps/
    For best in slot Cleric Tank Gear: http://www.riftscene.com/database/we...r/cleric_tank/

    Each Cleric should have a 61Sentinal, 61Warden and one Dps spec of your choice.

    Target Buffs: Latent Blaze, Eruption

    Guide:
    Before the fight cast Eruption and Latent Blaze on the Tank.

    There are 2 methods that a Purifier can do to be useful.

    1st method working on healing one Tank.

    Using the Ward of Fire macro to heal the Tank, if the heath gets a bit lower switch to the Ward of Scorching (for just 1 to 2 casts, it can drain your mana quickly).

    If the Tank gets to 50% use Healer's Covenant with Spiritual Conflagration or Rite of the Forge.

    Side note Spiritual Conflagration or Rite of the Forge will replace each other if already on the Tank.

    2nd method casting Symbol of the Sun on all raid members.

    For fast mass shielding use Symbol of the Hearth and Gathering of Flames they stack together.

    Self Buffs: Healer's Blessing, Faith Rewarded, Sign of Wrath, Heroic Resolve, Wisdom of the Ages
    Target Buffs: Wrathful Exuberance, Light of Redemption

    Guide:
    Before the fight cast your Light of Redemption and Wrathful Exuberance on the Tank.

    You should be casting the Healing Invocation macro on the Tank the whole time, while keeping a Healing Spray on it also. If the tank does gets lower switch to Crucial Invocation (for just 1 to 2 casts, it can drain your mana quickly).

    If the Tank gets to 50% use Fullness of Life macro or Healer's Covenant with Healer's Haste.

    You should be using Nyol's Hope at the start and whenever major damage will occur.

    If your major abilities are on cooldown and are needed use Renewed Altruism to reset them.

    Use Healing Breath macro for side healing for 5-10 mans.

    #show Healing Breath
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast @mouseoverui Healing Breath
    cast @mouseoverui Healing Flare

    Warden (AoE Healer)
    61 Ward/12 Sent/3 Inq
    http://rift.magelo.com/en/soultree#ne/qkGGyGEGGl4/pA8g

    Self Buffs: Heroic Resolve, Bosun's Blessing
    Target Buffs: Shared Excess

    Guide:
    You should try to keep 4 stacks of Soothing Stream and a Healing Spray on yourself for the whole fight.

    Keep your Healing Flood on all raid members (2 casts should do this) refreshing when it falls off. In between the Floods fall off time cast Healing Cataract, if they raid needs a very quick heal cast Pool of Restoration, and if they need big heals use Healing Effusion it will drain mana if you have to cast it too many times.

    You should be rotating through your major heals: Wave of Renewal, Monsoon, Ripple and Downpour.

    Side note Tidal Surge will not work on Monsoon or Ripple though you should be using it with the other ones.

    If your mana does get low use Cascade or stop and cast Open Water.

    Macros:
    #show River of Life
    raid Battle Rez on %T
    cast River of Life

    Guide:
    Before the fight put your 4 links: Link of Agony, Link of Suffering, Link of Misery, Link of Distress on the Tanks then any Healers that need it.

    You should just worry about one Tank using the Focus macro.

    #show Somatic Desecration
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Chimera's Gift
    cast Marrow Harvest
    cast Somatic Desecration

    Believe he meant the Cleric guides section is cluttered and hard to read and find what you are looking for, not his particular thread.

    Thank you OP for this seems fairly accurate in its over view of our class and best specs for each role.
