    Default 4.2 Cleric Tank guide

    Soul Tree :

    61 Justicar / 6 Cabalist / 9 Shaman

    Legendary :
    Justicar -- Hammer of Faith / Even Justice / Total Assurance
    Cabalist -- Unbounded Obliteration
    Last legendary is worthless


    Masteries :
    Level 61 - Righteous Protection
    Level 62 - Divine inspiration
    or Benevolent Presence if for whatever reason you need more raid heals.
    Level 63 - Swift Judgment
    Level 64 - Diversify
    Level 65 - Soul Stream
    or Divine Favor if for whatever reason you need more raid heals


    Buffs :
    Mien of Leadership
    Unbounded Obliteration
    Courage of the Bear
    Vengeance of the Winter Storm
    Righteous Mandate

    You can also use Mien of Honor when you are off tank and not taking any direct damage from the boss or adds. It allow you to heal a bit more and have roughtly 20% dps increase. And obviously, you won't steal aggro this way.

    Utility :
    Interupt : Inderdict
    Taunt single target : Provoke
    Taunt AOE : Righteous Imperative
    Taunt AOE & Pull : Rebuke
    Intercept : Intercede
    Battle Rez : Absolution
    Charge : Ride the Lightning (Shaman)

    Tank CD :
    Damage reduction : Doctrine of Glory
    Health & heal boost : Resplendent Embrace
    Absorption : Just Defense
    Full heal : Reprieve
    Self heal :
    Spoiler!


    Mana : ...

    Raid heal rotation :
    Doctrine of Loyalty / Even Justice spam


    You can even make a macro out of it if you're lazy.

    Damage rotation :
    Spoiler!

    That's all you need.

    Things you need to keep on target :
    Censure
    Unbounded obliteration
    (Cabalist - Damage debuff, use aoe spell on target)

    How to take aggro when there is adds :
    -You aren't full health : Soul Stream @self then damage macro
    - Your raid isn't full health : Doctrine of Loyalty twice then Total Assurance & damage macro
    - Everyone got full HP : Damage macro, put yourself between adds and raid, if adds walk toward raid use Righteous Imperative (aoe pull).
    -If there is only 1 add just Provoke it then damage macro

    Taunts are here in case you mess something up. It shouldn't be your main source of aggro.

    Stuff to know :
    - Only heal with at least 4 convictions
    - You don't have many CD, use them wisely and don't do a "panic use all CD at one button", please, don't.
    - Cleric tank is quite gear dependent, a low gear will take huge slaps while a heavily geared cleric will doesn't see his health move.
    -As other tanks just stack max health and endurance on your fragments once you reached 5K guard.




    Version 1 :
    Spoiler!



    Thanks to Skiye for his contribution

    The cabby version works well too. You get the same 5% damage reduction from whatever you hit, more resists and you don't need to worry about rage stacks.

    Is Unbounded Obliteration working on bosses ?

    Rage stacks give you 5% damage reduction and 5% healing received. Which is why i choose it instead of the cabalist version in the first place.

    Works on everything. Zero build time, no need to refresh, since HoF constantly keeps it up on whatever you hit.

    Also the extra resists may be better overall as far as mitigation. Plus debuffing the boss reduces damage to other players.

    In the end I figure it's a matter of preference though.

    Thanks for your contribution Skiye, i've just changed the guide. It makes the spec stronger and easier to play.

    No problem at all. Glad to help fellow clerics. Towards the bottom you still have a bit on the rage stacks though.

    Default Which 1handed weapon / shield if weapon is not maxxed

    Hi there

    Thanks for this build, it works perfect for me for the 100 SPE's even with 2handed weapon.

    Is there any good 1handed weapon and shield if my weapon isn't maxxed yet?

    Thanks for your reply

    I've just made this build I have 6600 guard you've listed 5k is that the cap? Should I reduce my guard and get block essences?

    You NEVER replace guard with block or dodge. Block or dodge could be used only over dps essences. Trion stopped updating guard tip long time ago, but I think 6.6k is below T2 cap and definitely below T3 cap (if T3 will ever happen).
    New player? Apply code TD2TGJH9WGYYLEGC2EMJ or use the link for some free stuff.

    Ah okay so we don't have soft/hard cap numbers but it's more the better got it....

    Haven't tanked on the cleric yet it's got 500k health and 6600 guard self buffed without food and pots.
    Would that be considered irotp ready?

    Definitely. You're in great shape for T1.

    As far as BoS prep start saving up that Intel for the berserker trinket though.
