On my Shard and on Defiant I rarely see DPS Clerics (and I don't mean Justicar/Shaman/Druid). I just recently switched from my tried and trusted support MDPS Cleric to Inq/Cab/Sent (38/17/11) and I can't understand how more players don't choose this Soul build. The single target DPS I doubt is on par with Warriors but in AOE I haven't seen it's match. The mobs literally explode when I pop Obliterate
after setting the adds up with a few nasty DoTs and Decay
. OFC there is also my 31pt Inq ability Circle of Oblivion
which is sick amounts of AOE damage, although mana intensive. I have seen somewhere north of 10k total damage in eIT when I used Obliterate properly.
The best part is I macro'd Healing Breath
to always cast on my Focus (Tank) so I can off-heal a little (by little I mean a good amount, I've seen it crit reg for 1500), my crit rating in group with a Bard is ~44% while dealing damage on a target, and I'm still not even geared correctly since I just changed to this build 2 days ago I'm wearing healer gear lol.
This Soul combo is decent for support as well because we can add +5% crit on target with Luminous Gaze
, +7% magic damage taken with Clinging Spirit
(AOE situations mostly) and another 7% with Spiritual Deficiency
, a few CC's including the dreaded AOE fear (only used in last ditch effort to prevent wipe ofc), +40 End in the Sent Soul should there not be a player in group with end buff, out of combat rez and Party/Raid Life & Death resistance.
Overall a very solid Soul combo to choose which is why it's odd to see so few with it. Edited, Apr 23rd 2011 12:00am by delindsay90210
