Patch 1.7 Cleric Presets (PTS)

January 26, 2012

I took a break from Rift recently playing SWTOR as there weren’t much new content/builds/changes to write about in Rift. However, with 1.7, Rift saw quite a few changes/new features and I will be covering that extensively :)

This guide is co-owned and first released on

mmosite148x59133333333333333333333

Note: the above info is on PTS and will change a bit before the actual 1.7 patch. This is a preview only. I will update this once 1.7 hits the live servers.

Patch 1.7 introduced preset souls – a series of souls that are “pre-built” helping to guide new players (to the game and/or to the class). What is interesting about this system is that it tells you exactly how to allocate your points one by one and exactly what spells you are getting. Also, level 50 players can quickly switch into one of the preset roles by first resetting their one of their role slots and then press a single button to fill all the points.

Here is a preview of the 4 cleric presets available on the PTS.

Character Creation


Upon creating a fresh new character, you will be given a sneak peak at the cleric endgame armor (full HK set) and given 4 presets.

The 4 presets right now are essentially “pure” heals, “pure” tank, melee DPS w/offheal capabilites (“suppportish”) and ranged DPS.

Accessing the presets


This part is fairly straightforward. Open your soul window (default –”N” key) and click on the button on the buttom. This will allow you access to the 4 presets. Additional, there is another button to the left where you can spend all your points following these presets.

Flame Keeper – Sent/Puri 3x/3x


This is your standard 34 Purifier/32 Sentinel/0 warden build. It was nicknamed Sent/Puri, Purisent etc.. by the community.

This is the point distribution at 50.

2

Purifier- 34 points

Sentinel- 32 points

Overall, I like the build. It is very similar to the 3x/3x Sent/Puri build I have being using. The difference in some of the point allocations are fairly minor. (i.e. In the purifier tree, I would have put the 1 point in Caregiver’s Blessing into Healing Flare instead. In the sentinel tree, I have a different point distribution for Embolden/Light Efficiency/Light Concentration).

You are given a short introduction to this preset, including basics, how to play and tips!

Seraphic Guard – 51 Justicar tanking


This is one of the many 51 Justicar tank build posted by Radak in his thread. It is a 51 Justicar/9 Shaman/6 Inq build.

Here is the point distribution at 50.

4

Justicar – all 51 points

  • Keep in mind Healer’s Creed has being changed to increase the healing your receive by 5-10% (used to be reduce the mana cost of your doctrine by 15-30%).
  • Reprieve, your O-shit heal on a 5 minute cooldown, has being chanaged so that it scales with spellpower better.

Shaman – 9 points

  • 3/3 Thick Skinned
  • 3/5 Unyielding
  • 2/2 Favored of the Valnir (NEW effect- now increase the duration of Lighting by 4-8 seconds).

Inquisitor – 6 points

Thunderer- 44 shaman/20 justicar melee DPS w/ offheals


This is a variation of the popular 44 shaman/22 Justicar melee DPS build I have being using.

Here is the point distribution at 50.

6

44-Shaman

20 Justicar

2/2 Inquisitor

This build is designed for pure melee DPS with some offhealing (some kind of “support” role) rather than soloing like the  44 shaman/22 Justicar build I linked above. I do feel that a 51 shaman would probably do better as a pure melee DPS but this is not a bad starting point. As for soloing, this build will feel a lot weaker than the 44 shaman/22 Justicar build due to the lack of some essential talents in the Justicar tree (i.e. Vengeful Justice and Devout Deflection).

Here are the official how-to and tips from Trion!

Arbiter- 51 Inq pure ranged DPS


This is the old favourite 51 Inq build. It uses the combination of 51 Inq/10 sent/5 warden. This is not a bad starting point for newbie players but at decent gear levels the 51 Inq/10 sent/5 cab build performs much better, especially with the upcoming nerfs to waterjet in patch 1.7.

Point allocation at 50

51 Inquisitor- all 51 points

10 sentinel

5 Warden
