    Default Runeshaper Guide for 4.0?

    Does anyone have a viable build for runeshaper with macros for 4.0 yet? I'm all for suggestions. I've tried all other variations listed on the guides here.

    After few hours of testing the version of
    61 Runeshaper - 10 Inquisitor - 5 Cabbalist
    is my way to go
    At good parses with 2000 hit and around 31k spellpower I reached >200k dps.

    I love to play the Runeshaper, but it's so overkilled by the definqui with ~275k.. *sniff*
    Full inquisitor or shaman are no way to got atm.

    My current build

    https://rift.magelo.com/en/soultree?...BiGkg/Eg|TK_gy current build

    Legendaries
    Bolt of Judgement
    Rune of Pain
    Seal of Vulnerability
    Rune of Impending Doom
    Shadows Touch

    Same way to play like the old 50pt Runeshaper. Just add Rune of Impending Doom and Shadows Touch to your Spammacro.

    Default Hybrid build

    I've seen some people run with a hybrid build where you have points in Oracle so that you get Emblem of Alacrity.

    Rotation is basically EoA/RoC x3 then EoA/RoS or EoA/EoI/RoS
    (with debuffs kept up)

    Not sure how it parses compared to defiler and inquis though.

    Going to chime in here:


    61 Runeshaper will likely become one of the better 61 point builds. If they fix the Rune of Travail/Seal of Vulnerability bug it will be even better. It currently parses close to 61 Druid (not sure since new patch hit), and higher than 61 Defiler.

    Most RS builds are strictly ST and do poorly with target swaps or cleaving, but are now extremely mobile (the viable ones).

    Neither 61 Runeshaper nor Oracle/Runeshaper have much in the way of macros, if at all. The rotation is very simple compared to any Defiler spec though.

    Going forward, I expect Runeshaper and Runeshaper hybrids to be the number 1 DPS spec for clerics unless significant nerfs or buffs towards Defiler, Shaman, or Druid. The lack of the other ST DPS crystal will keep most non-casting based specs worse off (see: Druid, Shaman) compared to casting based specs (Runeshaper, Inquisitor, Defiler to a certain extent).

    I cannot seem to find Rune of Pain, What tree is it under? I see seal of pain but It isn't legandary.

    It's Rune of Smiting.

    What forum post is the spam macro in?
    The only spam macro I could conceive from the description would be:
    #show Runestrike
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Rune of Impending Doom
    cast Runestrike
    cast Shadow's Touch (<-- ogcd because legendary)
    I'm not using any macros with Runeshaper (other than QoL), so this is just me guessing. Using the above macro will result in a dps loss.

    Not that it would matter, now that our mage friends hate us again.

    With bad gear I can burst 300 and hold about 260. That is the best I can get out of my spec.

    Default Anyone got the top RS build?

    I started messing around with RS the other night and pulled myself from ~250k or so to ~300k playing without macros. Is anyone getting much more than that?

    Default 61 RS/10 inquis/5 sent

    My Spec

    i get 300k pretty easy with this but you do have to reapply seal of vulnerability cause rune of travail does not reapply the legendary version (which i hope gets fixed)

    i know the level 65 mastery is missing but it doesnt matter since you wont really be using it unless you just want to use vicar's bulwark on teh tank/mob for some reason.......and if someone says you should be using soul stream on CD in this spec then they are doing it wrong imo. but other than that yeah there really arent any macros for this spec unless you want to macro impending doom with runestrike.....or inscribe fate with runestrike....i wouldnt macro all 3 together do to macro lag

    Looks like the same spec I'm using.. I didn't realize Rune of Travail wasn't refreshing Legendary Seal of Vulnerability, although I guess I should have known better lol.. My DPS went up to ~325-330k knowing that, so that's nice., Guess I just need some more practice with it then
