When using Vow of Valor and soloing, don't bother memming Sacred Elixir; they don't stack, and the Vow of Valor HoT proc is stronger, anyway.

(Edit: Vow of Valor's proc is always stronger than a Sacred Elixir of the same rank. However, if using an Elixir of a rank higher than Vow, the Elixir will be stronger.)

Vow of Valor Rk. II + Ward of Reprisal Rk. II + Dmg Shield(s) + Yaulp VIII Rk. II + Promised Renewal Rk. II = 1 incredible DPS machine.

Honestly, Clerics were never "envisioned" as soloers, but they sure as hell make capable ones (post-70) now. Ever since these spells went live, I've been wondering where the equivalent Enchanter "soloing" spells are...

You cast it on yourself, whenever you want to add extra dps meleeing, or if you ARE the tank (soloing, grouping without a true tank).

The very common proc, adds a 1350 heal over time, which is more than enough to solo some mobs that give decent exp (varying by gear, of course). It also is a 800 pt DD proc, so the combo is extra dps, and some nice self heal, at the expense of 50% efficiency of your direct heal spells.

For the record, aside from PR working for full with this spell (due to the fact it in a way makes the target "heal themselves"), HoTs also heal for full. If your tank is good enough that you can just straight cheal to keep them up, and/or you're in a trivial place, you may want to consider popping an Elixir on them instead and bringing out Vow of Valor and your hammer.

Don't forget yaulp if you don't have beastiecrack.

It's not worldcrashing dps, but it can be fun if used tactfully.

Finally clerics can solo their own AA's well..

I just dinged my cleric 71 yesterday (7,8hps/ 7,6mana) and she soloed a trash in Nobles.. and a Chimera in WOS.. admitted the Chimera was touch and go with fastheals .. but the trash in Nobles i didn't even need to touch a heal-spell .. No uber cleric..self buffed..

this is not a lifetap, when its procs it also procs a heal over time, it doesnt seem to reduce value of heal over times, only heals, i paid 40k for the rk2 and love it. it allows my 10khp/9kmana cleric to solo mobs that hit for 500+hps, it may not be much but beats being a bandaid all the time

Use the ward spell that has a chance to strike out at in inc hit and you are a killing machine.. dont use heal on yourself the 800 proc can crit if you put into offense spell aa and that means the 800 hit which is also a 800 lifetap... back to you .. when it crits for 1600 then your healed for 1600 to. I have a mace from time that heals group and I put a life tap 125 don aug on it .. I train myself and with damaage shield clicky I haev from tacvi and damage shield potions is silly fun fun !!

It does not heal directly, this spell is a Innate Proc Self-Buff . The Proc However, Does heal, it procs a Heal over time onto the cler.

yeah. trust me with critical heal and improved healing, you can still keep yourself up or any group. This is the biggest spell for clerics to come down since CH imho (if you've ever wanted to solo). When it procs (often), it acts as a hot and heals you big time. Does 800 dmg tier 1, 1000 tier 2, 1200 tier 3. Load up your best summoned hammer, the new Mark spell (660 dmg tier 1) and whack away. I easily solo lt blues and dark blues with this new spell. With the higher dodge skills via TSS and your defensive aa's maxed, we can finally solo higher content mobs when we can't find a group.

The new sacred heal will still crit for 10k and CH will crit for 8500 when VoV is up.

By the way, promised renewal is an incredible replacement for CH. Learn to time that one and you're a very effecient healer.

Totaly agree. Just wanted to add from what I have observed, promised renewal remains at 100% healing power while Vow of Valor is on.
