Raid Spec Guides

Last Updated: 18 November 2019 – All guides still correct, checked January 2022

I’ve been asked time and again to provide links to end game specs, spec choosing will always split opinion, nevertheless some specs are more suitable for higher tier content than others. These specs are chosen for a decent balance of output and complexity. There will always be specs which work better for different fights and this is by no means a comprehensive list. The forums can make it difficult to pick out the most up-to-date specs so I hope what I have here helps new players.
You may also find this table of specs from Prancing Turtle very useful!

The Ghar Station Forums
The Ghar Station Forums are slowly filling up with spec guides, and other info too!
Eventually these old Rift Forum archive links will be replaced with links to the Ghar Station Forums.

The Forums are down!
The Rift Forums are down at the moment, so the original spec guide links are not working. 
Cadrift has replaced all the links to go to archived pages. If the forums come back then we will relink to them at a later date.
If you want to browse the archived forums yourself then go to the wayback machine. You will not be able to post or make comments.
