Rift Cleric PVP Video: Volume 2: Shaman / Justicar @ 21


This HD video is narrated PVP footage of my level 21 Cleric in the MMORPG Rift in Patch 1.2.1 in a Codex warfront. I entered the warfront queued with two guildees:

  • Warzdak: 26 Healing Cleric
  • Frizzlepot: 21 Pyro Mage

Here is the 16 Shaman / 12 Justicar / 0 Warden spec I used in the video:

As I stated in the narration, I should have spent a talent point in Jolt instead of Endless Winter. While this is technically a DPS spec, I play him as a healer first and DPS second because that tends to provide the most value in warfronts.

Please post any questions / feedback.

P.S. More Cleric videos to come, as I’ve been capturing some terrific illustrative footage in the 20-29 bracket :)

    Enjoyed that vid a lot.

    May I ask, what is your stat priority?

    Also, what professions would you recommend for a melee healer.

    For Shaman/Justicar:
    Int > Spell Crit > Wis = End

    For any class or spec, it doesn’t really matter what profs you take, given that crafting items are not Bind-on-Pickup.

    I personally took Mining->Armorsmithing->Runecrafting, and for Mage/Roge I replace Armorsmithing with Outfitter.

    Hi Taugrim. Always loved your vids and i have a 50 Warrior based on your ideas that, like you, i am finding frustrating. Anyway, i’m rolling a cleric also and i was wondering whether you lvl your toon soley through PvP? or if you rift/quest/dungeon also? And whether you use the same spec in this case for all?

    I am liking this spec for WF’s but i definitely cant see past a spec involving Soul Purge for fast lvling and soloing rifts.

      Just to be clear: I didn’t roll a Cleric because I was frustrated with my Warrior.

      Warrior is fun for me, but the guild I was in over on Harrow didn’t have consistently strong healing, so that made being on a Warrior (or any MDPS) rough at times. Unfortunately there is no healing spec for Warrior, so there wasn’t anything I could do to help the healing deficiency at 50.

      A guildee checked out Sunrest and reported the server was much better than Harrow. After re-rolling I completely agree. Warfront chat is much more constructive and people don’t whine and complain like they do in the battlegroup Harrow is in.

      I didn’t want to re-level a Warrior again, I rolled a Cleric to make sure that our PVP guild had enough active healers. It’s been fun so far – unlike my previous guild we don’t have a shortage of healing.

      I level via PVP and PVE. I do PVE questing so that I can farm ore while doing it. I use the same spec, haven’t purchased a 2nd role yet. I will of course at some point.

    Hey great video. Ive played with a few of your Absolution teamates and their fun to play with.

    I had a question about two abilities. I currently have Glory of the Chosen and Glacial Shield in my spammable macro. I liek have the uptime on Glacial and the reflect component makes me feel like it isnt a waste of a GCD. Glory however is a different beast. Do you have it in your macro and if so where is it placed?

      Glory of the Chosen should be in your DPS and healing macros, so that it is automatically cast. You want to use it as much as possible as it is an efficient off-the-GCD heal.

      Glacial Shield should not be macrod with your attack abilities IMO. You want to be able to control when you bubble, e.g. to cap a flag.

  5. Frizzlepot says:

    I remember that WF it was a great one. Honoured to have made it into one of your vids Taugrim!

  6. Xulek says:

    Hi Taugrim, i really enjoy your blog ! (since your PallyProt guide ;)
    Can you post a few on your macros you’re using with your cleric ?

    Can you post too, the “buffs” you ‘re using ?

    I’m french , and it’s very hard for me to understand what you said on the video, i tried to see the buffs, but your dps cycle, i cannot state on it since you’re using macros (“oh no, he pushed what key this time ?”)

    It would be very nice if you post macros and buffs you use for “non-english” people :)

    Take care !

    Cheers

  7. Corey says:

    Hey I was wondering what enchantment you use on your wep.

  8. Xeuraxis says:

    Hey Taugrim, love your vids and blogs. Have a R6 Warrior which I took ton of tips from you before, and now rolling a mage, can’t wait to be on the same Warfronts with you now that you play a guardian on the same battle cluster (from Belmont).

    Keep up the good work man!

  9. Alamein says:

    Love the vids, I was wondering, maybe looking into the future a little bit. I don’t have a 50 so I am kinda levelling my cleric along with you, currently 25….was wondering how does this spec standalone at 50 pvp wise if you don’t have a few buddies with ya?

  10. Deathunseen says:

    i see what spec you are using for level 21, where are you going to put points as u lvl more in justicar or shaman?

  11. lang says:

    Hey Taugrim, love your vids and blogs what are your macros i see u useing?

  12. zeeker says:

    Nice video as always! I’ve been crazy busy this past few weeks and now I will be travelling abroad so it may be a while until I’m able to get back to the game :( but from what I see, Frizzlepot got you covered ;) Keep up the good job!

  13. Frozentreat says:

    Hey taugrim! its frozentreat from harrow. Im here with Komuri at my Bday party. Just wanted to say hello!
    Cheer my friends!

  14. Dan says:

    Yeah I’ve been curious about the macros for this class as well.

  15. Dan says:

    After messing around with this build, I love it a ton. Never been able to stay alive so long while delivering pretty decent damage, and healing my teammates at the same time. Awesome.

  16. taugrim says:

    That’s exactly why I play it. It has solid healing capability and functional damage.

  17. Maxim says:

    I still have no idea how the macro works or /how to get it to work, as it does not seem to work for me.

    the @mouseoverui macro you mentioned in part one.

    I tried it but when I mouseover the raid/party frames, it did nothing.

    Anyone can help me along with this?

    • Justin says:

      I’ve you are just hovering over someone’s frame, it won’t work. You have to hit the button you have the macro tied to as well. I have mine tied to the left mouse button on my G5 mouse so it’s easier to mouse over and click while leaving my left hand free for other actions.
