Rotation

Notes 
  • Icy blow is a 20 second debuff that stacks twice. If you let it fall off you must cast it twice to get its full effectiveness back, which wastes a lot of damage.
  • Eruption of Life causes Life Surge damage, one of the higher portions of damage that comes from this build It stacks 6 times and one stack is removed each time the enemy is attacked by the cleric. The oracle legendary Insignia of Blood we chose will automatically cast itself which counts as does damage. For this reason you should recast Eruption of Life with only two remaining stacks. This has been mistakenly put in many guides as counting five hits, but they tend to forget about the autocast. 
  • This rotation is literally three debuffs and one button.
Other Abilities
  • Windwalk  Increases Dodge by 35%. Increases movement speed by 50%. Lasts 15s
  • Ride the Lightning Charges at the enemy, dealing 4150 to 4587 Air damage to the enemy and all enemies in the path to the enemy. Roots the enemy for 1.5s. Removes all movement impairing effects from the Cleric.

About Karuul Alerts

Karuul Alerts are used for an addon specifically made for Rift with the name Karuul Alerts, also abbreviated as K-Alerts. We highly suggest that you utilize this or a similar addon  such as Gadgets. We use Karuul Alerts because of the ease with which the entire alert can be transferred between clients using import and or the export functions as well as sharing alerts directly within Rift itself. If you need assistance with obtaining this addon or how to import the following text you can see our guide on implementing macros.

What is provided after this is an example used by a player  who has actually played this role and found it to be helpful to them. It works for them, but may not work for you because play styles can vary so widely. Please consider this a starting point for customizing your own preferred layout.
