Class Lore Edit
Clerics are battle leaders who are invested with divine power. They blast foes with magical prayers, bolster and heal companions, and lead the way to victory with a mace in one hand and a holy symbol on the other.
As a cleric, the deity (or deities) you choose to revere goes a long way toward defining you, or at least how other people in the world see you. You could be a platinum-garbed envoy of Bahamut seeking justice throughout the land, a shadowy follower of Sehanine with a roguish streak, a burly discipline of Kord who believes the virtue of strength is sufficient for all challenges, or a dwarf cleric of Moradin bringing honor to denizens of your mountain home.
Class Archetypes Edit
Battle Cleric: If you choose to concentrate on melee, you find a good assortment of strikes to your liking. To achieve this build make Strength your primary score. Make Wisdom your secondary score and assign Charisma as your tertiary score.
Devoted Cleric: With this build, you choose to stand back and concentrate your abilities on keeping your fellow adventurers healthy and optimized. To this end, choose powers that grant bonuses and healing. Assign your highest ability to Wisdom, with Charisma secondary and Strength tertiary.
