what are your thoughts on the most underplayed but not totally stupid class/spec combos?

I very rarely see other heavy (30+) riftstalkers running around that aren't just running raids all the time as tanks.

I see almost nothing but melee clerics, marksmen/rangers and warriors.
Always check for black-on-black text.

Mages are still pretty rare, due to being underpowered pre 1.1, but are starting to gain some love.
I rarely see any decent chloro mages when i do try and find a group with my other toons (i have a 45 mage, 50 rogue, 30 cleric and 25 warrior)
Rogue melee dps is rarer, but not unheard of in the generic pug environment, most rogues i've run with prefer to run bard if that role isnt filled (no complaints here)
And other than my rogue, i rarely see a RS tank... and mines really not geared that great for tanking, but thx to class combination and skill i do ok in dungeons.

If your going for ultra unique... run an archon mage... a flat out archon build is rare.

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.
