Basically clerics are eldriches in Chain Armor with a ton of hps, str/con/dex buffs (at least), heals, instant heals, bigass melee dmg add, and a timed pb aoe mez and pb aoe dd. So they do as good or better dmg than elds, they just have smaller range bit slower casting. Its not real hard to figure out why 21% of the albion population is a cleric.
:D nice read ty :F

Don't blame the whiners: Blame the morons who listened to the whines and nerfed an entire spec line into oblivion.

Classic old post on vnboards

http://vnboards.ign.com/Percival_(RP)/b20670/25907748/?279

lensar = mackey the guy who got a job in charge of game balance for Mythic and then brought you the warlock.

On the plus side, apparently he's now working on 'other projects'
I am really amazed at this guy, if the above is true then I am not surprised
game balance is like it is today. His rants gave me a headache even after a few
posts.

The sad part is that the smite cleric was so nerfed they are more or less
extinct. :(

Who you calling extinct? :)

The first rule of Smite Club is that no one talks about Smite Club!

Uhm, I dont it went quite like that.
Only half ( in hibs case) or less of the zerg would turn tails, as a CG would only hold 20 peeps back then.

Imo the smite nerf came at a time that it was just about to not be needed as the dragon zones were introduced with better resist items, and then some time after that came the introduction of ra's with purge etc. They were really fooking overpowered vs shit resists and no resist buffs though.

If you would bring back the smite line just like it was back then it would
definately not be overpowered in todays RvR.

Would be fun if they un nerfed em ;)

they already unnerfed the nuke - except for the power cost.

dps is much higher now (it was a 4s cast time nuke before)

Remove buffbots and you might get closer - lack of any sort of buffs on most people plus self buffs on the cleric are part of what made clerics nasty.
