Yeah thatís a real issue with Cleric. Only one healer slot in a group and thereís usually clerics around. Playing on low pop hours can be an issue too with few groups around.

But, clerics CAN solo and duo. Not optimal to solo but it is doable, at least until lvl 50.

I soloed cleric mostly to 50 minus some highkeep time. My route was:

Blackburrow until snakes go green
WK bandits until they green
Scarecrows in WK until green. Great for clerics
6 min big skeleton in Rathe Mts
Highkeep from 31-34
Kithkor level 35 rotting knight who had 200 HP from him being yellow at 35 until blue at 50 (they patched him out on green so can't do him anymore)

cleric can just /who all +/-2 levels of their own and send a simple "hey wanna start a group / duo" to their class(es) of choice and boom, theres your xp session

or leave /lfg on and casual-camp an undead or something

either way, dont just sit in one spot hitting /ooc with "cleric lfg" every 10 mins, be proactive and make your own

ive never heard of this...unless your guild wasn't competing for yelinak / aow / tunare / dain / KT / vulak (or any of the other unslowable mobs)

usually you gotta beg people to log in cleric bots

On Green at least my mains a Cleric, and I always

A. suffered to find groups just as much as any class
B. when I was in a raiding guild I was really not needed as green and that guild had an extraordinary surplus of clerics. They preferred I bring monk instead, and I couldn't get the cleric to get into much content due to the massive amount of them showing up everywhere. Its very competitive being a cleric, which makes one of the easier epics on paper a lot harder on green since the lines of clerics go around the block


Its still a great class though, and I actually like when someone is looking for a rez and ill swap over to do it for them
Thatís surprising and Iím curious what guild, and what content you guys were doing, because Iíve never seen a surplus of Clerics in any raid environment. Clerics also can make a group basically out of thin air with any melee.

I don’t enjoy playing a cleric but have leveled one as it’s often the bottleneck to any adventure. Certainly we lack them over other dps and even knights at raids.

In general rolling a cleric is always a good idea in EQ. Bad at soloing and farming plat but if you have the time for grouping (even with one other person) people always need healing.

The sucky thing is though: If you have to log off - you destroy your group.

That guilt is hard to shake.

Clerics can stun. Pull. Cc. Reset agro (even other ppls). They are almost as powerful as enchanters. And their buffs are solid. Cleric buffs tank. Druid buffs casters.

With a solid Cleric u should not really need heals.
