    Default Cleric Tank/Support

    Why just tank when you can tank and support?
    It is a two macro tank build. One spam and one to just to get mana back if you need to. Just an option, have fun with it.

    Here is the build

    The Legendary skills are:
    Hammer of Faith
    Salvation
    Total Assurance
    Summon:Faerie Healer
    Insignia of Blood

    The buffs are different because you as a tank are doing the support - lol. There really is no need for support but you can not use some buffs that will be overwritten by other suport people in larger raids.

    The buffs are;
    Mien of Leadership
    Inspiration of Battle
    Boon of Vitality
    Defensive Favor
    Righteous Mandate on the healer

    Macros;
    The spam
    #show Total Assurance
    suppressmacrofailures
    cancelbuff Purpose
    cast Fading Light
    cast Strike of Retribution
    cast Precept of Refuge
    cast Hammer of Faith
    cast Total Assurance
    cast Even Justice
    cast Renewing Pod
    cast Salvaged Tablet
    cast Vicar's Bulwark

    The mana regen#show Even Justice
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Fading Light
    cast [notactive] Purpose
    cast Even Justice

    The buffs to help the healer
    #show Just Defense
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Doctrine of Glory
    cast Resplendent Embrace
    cast Just Defense
    cast Reprieve

    Here is a link to the build in action.

    Enjoy!

    If you are really going to support and tank at the same time, try this: https://rift.magelo.com/en/soultree#...Yv1fB1g/D|PsPM

    You can move numbers around between Unshakable Faith, Thorvin's Law, and Commitment as needed, but in the example I provide my block absorption is already maxed and mana hasn't been a problem so I just dump those two points into resistance.

    Provides better support and doesn't really diminish your tanking ability, at least in current content. Oh and switch to Even Justice instead of Total assurance.

    BTW if you are trying to get Inspiration to Battle to proc with Legendary Insignia of Blood it wont happen so it's kinda pointless to use a support type tank spec unless you are gunna manually cast Insignia of blood or gunna be using wasting insigna

    This is what Rift has become. Using CDs on CD and not needing anything for specific situations.

    This is wrong, it definitely procs. Even just spamming Strike of Judgement it proc'ed 5 times in 16 seconds. Spamming HoF proc'ed 9 in 20 seconds.
