Not sure how a cleric handles there though.
Well, at the lvl's 135-140 you always will have problems because the 130 gears sucks. I understand the feeling of getting died, but i dont think it need to happens since when you get 140+ you probably will tank a little bit more ( If you have ws belt and cube neck, it will help you on it too)
Just make a HA mage, i used to do that. With my veno. I could do PV 135+ in 3 pulls. (Absolute Domain)
