Think I will switch warden to purifier though, Purifier is beast for self heal/ward with minimal points(4)
    Unfortunately, I don't see Cab as being that great for PvP, because in order to do AoE damage with "Obliterate" and "Bound Fate," your targets need to be standing pretty close to each other. You can still use "Tyranny," though if they move out of your circle when you place it, that would suck. =P

    I think these soul combinations will be awesome for a solo cleric PVP spec, comments/feedback appreciated:

    Config 1, best multi-target spec for sheer ownage dps and best utility with decent survivability:

    Druid: For melee dps, heals, ward, Slumber (10 sec mez) and Grim Silence (5 sec silence)

    Cabalist (most points in this soul): For single and multiple target spell dps, Dark Harbor (+40 to air earth fire and water resists), Maelstrom (summon 3 enemy targets to your location), Reversal of Fortune (reflects spell directed at cleric back to caster), Grasping Waters (root), Nebulous Haze (increases enemy's casting time by 30%), Sigil of Binding (snares multiple enemies by 50%), and after using all that WTFpwn multiple targets with all the AE dps of this soul.

    Purifier or Sentinel: basic spec for additional heals.

    Config 2 - best single target spec with slower kills and less utility than Config 1, but maximum survivability:

    Shaman (most points)/Justicar (medium points)/Sentinel (basic points for additional heals) - this spec is the best for melee dps, including multi-target, with maximum survivability (less combined dps and versatility than Druid/Cabilist/Purifier but best survivability of all cleric combos that can do respectable dps). Use a two hander intended for clerics for max dps, don't worry about armor because you have all the heals and protection you need. It is basically difficult to impossible to kill a competent player with this spec in one on one, it takes multiple PCs to kill you.

    Those look like great combos, the only thing I'd reccomend for Config 1 is swapping either Druid, Purifier, or Sentinel for Inquisitor. Cab and Inquis have such good synergy, it's stupid ridiculous.

    Also something I wanna point out; Grasping Waters breaks upon the target taking damage, even though it doesn't say that. =(

    Inq has a couple of nice utility abilities but IMO they aren't worth the tradeoffs of the survivability abilties (heals etc) you get from both Druid and Sentinel.

    Going Cab/Inq and only Purifier or Sent is not enough to stay alive.

    Depends on how many mobs you're fighting. =P

    No matter how you try to avoid getting multiples, at times you will get 4+. If two of your three souls have some healing ability, you will maximize your survivability during those times.

    And if you have the Inquisitor's Soul Drain, they topple over pretty fast. More mobs = more damage multiplier. XD

    Seems to me from practicing it's one hell of a lot harder to stay alive with your config than with mine.

    I'll keep practicing though.

    Gotta admit, I do have some close scrapes from time to time... XD

    It's actually hardest for me to fight against two mobs. 1v1 is... easy, 1v3 can be challenging, but still doable, and 1v4-6 is essentially cast Soul Drain once and everything dies. =P

    When fighting against multiple mobs, I first put Vex on everything (because I've spent points into making it heal me) and then start using Soul Drain and my AoE spells. When I get down to about half health, I put on my Purifier self-ward and let my Vex's and Harsh Discipline heal me back to full while I continue spamming Soul Drain and my AoE spells.

    The reason why fighting 3+ mobs is easier than fighting two mobs is because Soul Drain AoEs equal to the amount of mobs you hit with it (max 4).

    So, say my Soul Drain does 100 damage. The table would look like this:

    1 Mob: 100 dmg (net 100)
    2 Mobs: 200 dmg each (net 400)
    3 Mobs: 300 dmg each (net 900)
    4 Mobs: 400 dmg each (net 1600)
    5 Mobs: 400 dmg each (net 2000)

    ...and so on and so forth. The cooldown is only like 10 seconds, too... so as you can see, it's fairly easy to kick ass with an Inquis/Cab combo... so long as you have enough mobs. =P
