    Default 4.3 Purifier

    Rift SFP 4.3 - Cleric Purifier Guide - Updated on: 26th October 2017

    I've noticed the cleric forums lack some up to date guides. There's still some good old ones out there that explain the skills well but without the current spec mentioned, what might make it confusing for new players or players with alts. Because of this i've decided to rewrite some of those guides while possibly copying some parts of the older guides and add the new specs + legendaries and posible changes in rotations. For this Purifier guide i have used Lyrine's guide as a reference.

    Spec:
    61 Purifier | 8 Oracle | 7 Sentinel For more ST healing power and to be able to give party members extra buffs when there is no bard or oracle.
    61 Purifier | 8 Warden | 7 Sentinel For some extra AoE healing when needed.

    Legendaries:

    - Ward of Fire (purifier)
    - Flash of the Phoenix (purifier)
    - Flame of Life (purifier)
    - Wasting Insignia (oracle) or Healing Flood (warden)
    - Bolt of Light (sentinel)

    Buffs:

    Wisdom of the Ages (purifier)
    Caregiver's Blessing (purifier)
    Sign of Faith (purifier)
    Heroic Resolve (sentinel)
    Boon of Vitality (oracle) > overwritten with a raid support
    Inspiration of Battle (oracle) > overwritten with a raid support

    Playstyle:

    Like all healing specs purifier is about reacting to certain situations. There is no real set rotation.
    - Single Target healing

    Rotation or Priority system:

    Pre-pull:
    - Eruption on the tank
    - Latent Blaze on the tank(s)
    - 3 stacks of Healing Flood (when using warden)

    Rotation:
    As mentioned above Purifier does not have a set Rotation its about reacting to the damage out put. The only 'rotation' is the following:
    2x Ward of Flame > (instant) Ward of Fire.

    Because of Faith's Reward you can also:
    1x Ward of Flame > (instant) Ward of Scorching (if necessary)

    Do note that casting instant Ward of Fires will consume Faith's Reward stacks even with the necessary stacks from Ward of Flames. Ward of Scorching casts are therefore not recommended, especially due to extremely high mana costs in a mana hungry spec and its likely a waste due to absorption cap.

    1. Legendary Abilities

    Keep up the legendary abilities at all times.
    - Bolt of Light when applied to an enemey it gives a buff that increases healing by 15%.
    - Wasting Insignia when applied to an enemey it gives a buff that increases healing by 20%. Wasting Insignia needs to be refreshed when the affected target dies.
    - Healing FLood stacks up 3 times, keep it up for extra AoE healing.

    2. Symbols:

    Symbol usage is very important to manage in Purifier. Placing a Symbol of the Sun (the stronger Symbol) on a target will increase all of your Fire-based healing by 20% on the target. It is important to keep this buff up at all times on all active tanks
    - Symbol of the Sun
    - Symbol of the Torch

    Each type can only shield 3 targets at a time, though a target will only count towards the max if the symbol's absorption has not been fully used up. If you reapply a Symbol on a target beyond the max, the earliest Symbol applied will fall off.

    Symbol of the Sun is the more powerful version of Symbol of the Torch; you want to save Sun for the tank and use Torch for spot shielding endangered members in a raid if you are not actively casting on the tank.

    Casting a Symbol will cause the target to get Burnout, stopping the target from obtaining another Symbol until it is gone. Burnout can be removed by proccing Clear the Coals on the target (15% chance with mastery).

    3. Wards and heals:

    - Healing Flare
    - Healing Breath
    - Ward of Flame
    - Ward of Fire
    - Ward of Scorching

    When channeling Ward of Flame you gain 3 stacks of Bless of the Flame that will cause the cast time of Ward of Fire to be reduced. At 6 stacks of Bless of the Flame you can instantly cast Ward of Fire.

    4. Cool downs:

    - Latent Blaze, can be put on multiple targets.
    - Flashover
    - Fiery Will
    - Spiritual Conflagration
    - Rite of the Forge
    - Gathering of Flames
    - Flame of Life
    - Flash of the Phoenix
    - Divine Favor, the newly updated mastery.

    * Spiritual Conflagration, Rite of the Forge and Gathering of Flames will not stack on the same target. Meaning Spiritual Conflagration & Rite of the Forge will override Gathering of Flames and each other.
    * Gathering of Flames randomly shields 10 members in a raid.
    * Overal you want to use Fiery Will in combination with Rite of the Forge.
    * Flashover, Tidal Surge & Fiery Will do not affect Flame of Life.

    5. Cleanses:

    - Cauterize
    - Sterilize
    - Cauterizing Wave

    It goes without saying that all the abilities mentioned above should be on your bars

    You pretty much answered your own question , but yes with the help of the 64 mastery the cast time gets reduced enough to make it worth while.

    Do you prefer Sent or Puri for tank healing?
    (I'm aware SPEs are easy, but which do you think is better for SPEs/LFR?)

    For dungeons it does not really matter what you play. I would say pick what you prefer to play.

    As for the LFR in the rare occasion that people are actually using a ST healer i would go with Purifier. The shields still do their job on tanks and the changes to Eruption provide a decent amount of healing to the group as well. + Sterilize can be help full on Tarjulia removing a big debuff stack on players.

    Hello.

    In the Oracle soul why did you put 3 points in War Mentality instead of just 2 and used the other on Inspiration of Survival?

    I mean, we're gonna be casting Wasting Insignia anyway, might as well use the absorb it gives, no?

    You can yes, the shield is so small i used to ignore it as your only using Wasting once every 20 seconds. But with the eruption change it's not like purifiers will be dealing any damage.

    Yes, but if there is a support (not sure about archon/bm), that raid buff will conflict with theirs.

    It didnt over write the bard's Motif of Regeneration for some reason (might be because of legendary version), I checked today to be sure. Unless it overwrite's some other Motif for some strange reason, but that should not be the case.

    Is legendary wasting insignia conflicting and overwriting other clerics normal wasting insignia as well?

    Is this still the go to for healing SPEs and tank healing raids?

    Also, is Fire Wall only used for dps when no heals are needed or does it give some type of buff somewhere? I didn't see one, but I could be slightly blind.

    One last thing, how do you guys handle when more than 2 people are taking quick ticks of damage or a big chunk out?

    Again I'm fairly new to 70, so only running SPEs and eventually TD, but seeing all of my 5 man group take chunks of damage is overwhelming and I seriously go and blank for a second.

    Any tips are appreciated!
