    Cleric Specs:
    The specs i recommend getting when looking at a raid environment:
    - Shaman - Currently the most versatile melee dps spec for raid fights
    - Inquisitor - Currently the best ranged dps spec for raid fights + adds 5% bonus magic damage for raid
    - Warden - Currently best healing spec for raids, ST healers are hardly ever needed.
    - Wardocle - interesting hybrid that works well in raids
    - Justicar - a tank spec that well liked in raids right now.

    Damage Dealing Specs:

    Inquisitor 4.3:
    Ranged single target damage dealing spec. Currently the best ranged damage dealing spec for Clerics that also applies a 5% magic damage increase for the entire raid.

    Thanks so much for doing this. Just a quick thing, the Shammy guide is linking to the Inq guide.

    Nice to see a new one was created and will kept uptodate, I removed my own compendium as a sticky and got your's to be the replacement.

    This also happened in the Rogues Guide section with their new replacement compendium added, and warriors lost that ancient compendium.

    Mages and Warriors still need new compendiums if anyone is interested.

    Thank you for this compendium. I returned to Rift when Starfall Prophecy came out and my gaming community was returning to the game again. I had to relearn how to play and do have a 70 mage worked out (mostly), but now I want to level my cleric. This is a good summary of the various builds.

    What I need to find now is suggestions of macros to use. I'm disabled and have issues with my hands so macros in this game are a wonderful thing.

    In most of guide's that are mentioned you will be directed there. like 90% of those guides have macro's. As for the lvl'ing spec that is all the way down, there are some 1 button macro's for that build as well. you wont do the max amount of damage but its more then enough to lvl up with.

    for example but besure to use the Spec mentioned in this compendium with the legendaries in that order

    Thanks and most of the people do a great job with their guides here. It's fun trying to find what works and some days I feel like I need to be the one button wonder to actually play. LOL! However, a nice rotation of 3 has worked well on some of my mage builds, so should work when I have time to play with the cleric. I just have to stop running around so much in RL! I don't do too bad considering my hands cramp up a lot and can also have some numbness/tingling. I won't be beating any DPS challenges with a perfectly healthy and good player, but I at least hold my own.

    Question Inquisitor

    Is beautifully described on thank you. What I miss as a newcomer from the cleric are macros and how I play the inquisitor right. Would be nice if you can write something there. Many Thanks

    Default Curious about the 61 Justicar 15 warden 0 druid build

    curious if you have macros for this build and how you keep 3 stacks of Heal Flood up.

    Overall the macros i use for this spec are not that much different from your normal justicar macros.
    Currently these are the ones i use:

    Spoiler!


    Healing Flood Kalart with timer and stacks:
    Code:
    KA:Warden: Healing Flood:aoGlueNo1jtsKwjAQRH/FH7Cm9hJln3pFH7RS4luhrE2rwdBKE5
    Ai/rtJi8yyLLPDYcAFBi+JUzuCPXOjQ4tS9PdVLoeBQ+TuSBhHLvHjYO/RJAVikjZHjErRaUhR46
    a6Hiu8CSn0VItm6FX1xpG3/fqx4OrO4hzOFdCtD5RQ8DwnXBZxqIF+lMbmqb7AikuSnVlWGtPMrM
    C0YxAXjBWn/9N64dwk/wE6cjvX
    Some tips for this spec:
    - A healing crystal will help you a lot on the healing part.
    - On big packs, Salvation will be your main healing ability. When standing still you will be spamming Hammer of Faith most of the time, but when moving it might be safer to use Even justice as you hit targets all around you.
    Try to keep up healing flood never the less, not letting the 3 stacks drop. When damage is high on the point of having to refresh Healing Flood, i normally pop Just Defense for a safety shield.
    - On Boss fights keeping up 3 stacks Healing Flood and Healing spray on your self will be the main healing. For the extra self healing have Doctrine of Bliss on your bars as well.
    (overflowing Renewal and healing Cataract are not worth using and should not be used.)
    - On bosses like Scarn putting Healing Spray on other party members will help out a lot as well.
    - Having more HP is better so focus on getting HP when trying to do this

    Beside the high damage on trash packs i normally never have any problems keeping up the 3 stacks form Healing Flood. I just try to look for a good time to refresh them, and if this means refreshing them early for example around 5 second before they fall off because at that time i am full HP, that's what i will do.

    The link at the inquisitor should direct you to a guide on how to play inquisitor.
    As for the macros for inquisitor, Inquisitor does have some macros that can be useful but at the same time the spec can't be put into 2 macros like shaman for example. The abilities and needed rotation don't allow it. So you will have to get used to having to press several buttons to play inquisitor right.

    Some macro's that might be useful are the following.

    any changes needed with essences or frags? or keep them default tank? so build works.
