    Default Defiler pure instant cast dot/movement spec?

    Hi, I was wondering what you think of this build. I was playing around with souls and
    I haven't seen this build suggested anywhere and was wondering why. am I missing something obvious that makes it inferior?

    61 def, 8 cab, 7 inq
    inq points are 5/5 planar study 2/2 pursuit of truth
    cab points are 5/5 Stroke genius 3/5 entropy (I'm thinking of dropping 1 planar study or entropy to gain unbound obliteration here)

    legends: Unstable Transformation, BoJ, Pain transmission, Misery Affiction, Shadow's Touch.

    Mast: Soul Collector, Divine Ins, Supp Haste, Sinister Res, SS (or DF?)

    Features: Ranged, No casting, allowing for 100% movement freedom in boss fights, massive dps.
    Spam macro (all cd spells), then a full dot rotation, then refresh half the cd's, then half the dots. refreshing MH always.
    This build causes a cast time spell to become instant.
    I'm currently working on the dot rotation to get it perfect, as there is one too many to cast which is causing a rotation overlap. I've yet to decide which one to omit

    spam macro:

    #show Marrow Harvest
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Marrow Harvest
    cast Tyranny of Death
    cast Pain Transmission
    cast Shadow's Touch
    cast Bond of Pain
    cast Explosive Rage

    busrt dmg/buff macro:

    #show Unstable Transformation
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Greed's Call
    cast Unstable Transformation
    cast Furious Might

    Dot rotation.

    Vex, MA, CoR, SV, AA.

    Try it out and see how you like it, mean time I'm gonna try and fine tune the rotation.
    And also try unbound obliteration out. Let me know what you think guys. Thanks

    Edit: I'm removing explosive rage from the macro and using it separate, still tweaking

    id trade out cab for druid because that 30% dmg increase to elemental dmg is kinda hard to pass up on for any dps spec

    Fervent has a 20m range with a mastery point.

    Anyway if you want a fully mobile spec with no cast times I'd suggest druidalist. You'll get good results than and have a ton of AoE cleave.

    Default optimising 61 justicar dps

    Hi, I wanted to maximise my dps while still maintaining 97% of my tankability for Justicar
    This build isn't in the compendium yet and its a dps boost of +/- 20% over the suggested tank builds here.
    After several hours of trying every off-soul (free souls) with 61 Justicar, here's what I discovered

    5 Inq, 10 dru. was the highest ST dps on a raid dummy. Censure, DoA, HoD, HoF all hitting harder than in other builds, and of course BoJ was the best off-soul legendary, average hitting for 50k.

    Inq is 5/5 planar study of course and Druid is 5/5 dps and 5/5 mercurial of course

    Legendaries: BoJ, FS, HoF, EJ, TA.
    Masteries: RP, DI, SJ, SA, DF. (I prefer DF over SS. using SS CD as a dps instead of a heal is stupid, it does less than one HoF global so you will only nerf your dps, and who wants a 3 second channel anyway, just use divine favor in your bubbles macro and forget about it).

    The rotation is really simple, it revolves around a 30second and a 1minute CD rotation:
    Fervent Strike and Total Assurance. You will always be at 7 convictions unless you're in a tight spot and using everything (heals, shields) so HoD will hit for 200k here.

    Rotation: FS, spam until 30s of FS, HoD-TA, spam until FS renewal.

    You can make a kalert for the FS buff falling off.

    spam macro:

    #show Doctrine of Authority
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Strike of Retribution
    cast Doctrine of Authority
    cast Shield of Oak
    cast Hammer of Faith
    cast Break Free
    cast Fading Light

    you're welcome to remove shield of oak if you like, it doesn't affect dps as its off global.

    armor of treachery only gives 3k hp, and when you have 400k, 3k is nothing, so this build goes for armor of devotion instead, for the crit.

    Don't forget to use DoL when the party needs it. top your convictions up with one EJ and you're back to rotation.

    Note: there is no PoR or DoL in the macro, DoL I always use separate, and PoR is just bad.

    Pop quiz, are you using your planar abilities on cooldown? If not, why?

    you've got 6 bubbles, never miss a bubble again with this macro:
    a bit of practice and you can manage your conviction consumption for DoG around your dps.
    Also put JD and RE on a side bar so you can see when they're ready

    #show Doctrine of Glory
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Doctrine of Glory
    cast Just Defense
    cast Resplendent Embrace
    cast Divine Favor
    cast Stormtouched
    cast Petrified Barnacle Rune

    Try it out guys, have fun

    if you wanted to optimize 61 justicar dps then you should be using druid and not inquis since you will gain more with 4-5 points in Mercurial than with 5% crit

    If you are the only cleric in the raid and tank you should play with 12 points in the defiler for the 5 % magic debuff with Marrow Harvest and Tenebrious Distortion. The damage gain of the raid by the 5 % magical debuff is essential.

    I'm surprised the spec isn't listed in the tank guidelines.

    could also go 23 in oracle for buffs if you dont have one in raid since you dont really need DoGlory....and you can go the extra 4 points into defiler for the purge if you need one on last boss

    A comprehensive list of cleric tank builds is on my list of ToDo's. I'll get around to it eventually lol

    Unless Fyel or Killerloose would like to make one instead and I can just add a few extras to whatever thread they make.
