The PVP build for the cleric is a well rounded build offering great support to allies and bringing fierce battle to enemies.

Since RIFT gives each character up to 5 roles to switch back and forth to, playing a cleric means you can experience a wide range of playing styles.  This also makes a cleric a very handy party member as they can fulfill almost any requirement of the group or situation.

Below is a brief summary of each of the cleric souls.  This website is still under construction.  Links to specific builds will be added over time to provide more detail about each soul and the many builds that have been discovered through combining the souls.
