Justicar Soul questionFollow

I've been looking over the Justicar soul, and started wondering: Is this more of a Tanking Soul or a DPS/Healer soul?

I know that there are soul points in there to tank, but do they do well in DPS? I was looking at a build like rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=10drj.Vxz.EuMooe0koR.E0Ezo0z, and wasnt sure if I should be staying away from Justicar and look at something else for DPS. I like Clerics because I also enjoy using the Warden/Pur/Sent build for Healing. Thanks!

Best dps till 50 is inquisitor, at 50 I think shaman. Justicar should not be used for dps, but it's great for pvp as you deal avarage damage and heal everyone around you.

The Justicar soul is more of a front-line survivor with some heals to boot. If you want to DPS you can either go for a soultree designed for that, or supplement the justicar soultree with another. I brought up a lvl 23 Justicar/Druid by the end of Beta#7 and was really enjoying the build.

I didn't get much group time in, but there are some heal single-cast spells that are handy. The justicars primary heals come from a percentage of damage done to your enemy, and is an AOE. There are places in the level progression where mana-starvation can start setting in, but there are mana generation techniques that you can build to. Whithin the Druid tree is the Fae hammer, and that was always good for bring the mana back up. Having a multi-enemy melee strike is handy as each enemy hit will bring up the health-bar. That Fae hammer only works once per swing on the mana regardless of the number of enemies hit.

My third soul was for the lack of knowing much of anything about the souls, and it was a shaman. There's some good hard hitting stuff on that tree. Do some shopping, but I suggest that you try a Justicar if you like to step into the fray.

I had a lvl24 Justicar/Shaman/Druid in the last Beta.
lvl27 Chloro(Healer), lvl27 Champoin(DD) and lvl24 Justicar(Tank) did finished an instance with mobs around lvl25.

Only hard fight was the last boss, where we had to kill the summoned earth crystal fast enough so the boss didnt heal himself.

I dont know if the Justicar is a good Raid Tank(probably not so) but for 5 man instances he is very good because of the good self healing(way better than any other tank).
Aggro also wasnt a problem because Justicar's get a stance with 300% aggro bonus and get some AE Attacks too.
I dont know how good other tanks can interrupt spellcasting, but the Justicar gets only one (AE) Interrupt at lvl32 with 10 sec CD.
