-Straight Str. WF Favored soul

-16 Favored soul/2 Paladin/ 2 monk halfling Rapier finesse build

-16 Sorc/2 paladin/2 rogue warforged

-17 Favored soul/3 monk halfling

-17 Cleric/3 monk halfling dex build.

-15 Cleric/3 monk/2 paladin

Most raids seem to be looking for mass heal from a healer type.

Only two of your options include this. Granted most raids also used to be accomplished without mass heal with a 16 level cap - but there aren't many 16s and 14s in those raids anymore.

It is hard to get past the lack of dps from most finesse builds (I have three of them still).

My halfling monk gets past it a bit with Touch of Death and stunning/invisibility giving a bunch of short ninja SA.

Your two WF or the clonk would seem like the best choices.

It might depend on who/what you are douing with?

I'm gonna be running with a 16/2/2 sorc/pally/rogue. Warforged of course.

As posted in your other thread, you seem to want to go for survivability firstmost. Of those builds you listed, I think you'll be most happy with a 17cleric/3monk.

I have a 20WF fvs with sos, ive had 18/2fvs monk builds both evok and melee.
Gimp compared to my 16/2/2 fvs/monk/pal str build.

Give my Golden Roach a look, I just recently posted it. Its got extremely high survivability.
2200sp
600hp
42/36/32 unbuffed saves, evasion
extremely competative dps with 32str +60atk raid buffed, dwarven axes
Also completely heal specced. I've healed epic chrono with 1 other splash healer, and pretty much all other content in the game. Can solo elite amrath, epic, etc.
Oh its also got 55 intimidate, 50 balance and 48 diplomacy.

Does more than enough to get a spot in groups/raids, also has enough everything to solo whatever you want.

Good. Can't go wrong with that.

-16 Sorc/2 paladin/2 rogue warforged
Good. Old and proven build.

-16 Favored soul/2 Paladin/ 2 monk halfling Rapier finesse build
Remove finesse and you'd do fine. But i'd go Human. Extra feat helps alot.

-17 Favored soul/3 monk halfling
Not finesse. But not as good as 'Cleric' version (no mass heal).

-17 Cleric/3 monk halfling dex build.
Good if not finesse.

-15 Cleric/3 monk/2 paladin
Good if not finesse.

In general mobs hit hard and have lots and lots of HPs. As long as *you* hit hard and can heal damage taken, just about any build will work.

Another thing: Weapon Finnese is a feat and none of your builds has feats to spare.

My favorites would be:
- Sorc/2 paladin/2 rogue warforged
- 15 Cleric/3 monk/2 fighter
