Hey guys and gals. I was looking at starting a Evoker fvs, but alas, I have no clue about divines as I mostly play melee types. I thought a Evoker divine would be a nice change of pace.

What I'm looking for is a fleshy race, AE damage and stuns with sound burst setup, good solo strength, able to raid heal if need, I don't mind a small splash for monk or pally or something else.

It's going to be a 32 point fresh build with random loots I've picked up. So I want to keep it simple and effective if I can. Thanks guys! Any advice would be appreciated!

I've played all the different kinds of divines because they are my favorite characters.
Right now I have a favored soul build that I'm enjoing in particular. You can find the link to it in my signature. She is a force spec favored soul. Blade barriers, energy burst and hellball are the aoe spells used, while on single target she spams magic missile spell and archmage magic missile sla.

Spell Powers: Force + Light (+Positive)

I only took 79 enhancement points because the builder wouldn't let me take the AoV capstone.
This is a very, very, very traditional (and possibly old-feeling) FvS build. It should still be perfectly solid as a first-life FvS. You probably will struggle as a spellcaster from levels 1-11 (Dw, all Favored Souls do), just use a melee weapon and hit stuff. Preferably two-handed. Blade barrier will make life much easier.

Is it the best FvS build? Probably not
Is it easy to understand and play? Most definitely.
Will it be competitive endgame? It should do fine. It'll heal well and deal all those divine evoker goodies.
What ED should I use? Probably Exalted Angel with some magister twists.
Why didn't you multiclass? Because that's less simple!
Any small tweaks? If I were to change something, I'd lower Int and Cha, drop the Jump skill, and take more con.

Hey thanks for the feedback. While your build does look very interesting and gives me a lot to think about, I feel like it's a little too gear intensive and depends on past lives for a new first life FVS. I've looked it over and I'll definitely try to incorporate some of your ideas in a few lives as I go.

If you could do a simpler work up on a light+force maybe with 2 levels of a multi class I would love to see it.

Have to be a FvS ?

Divine disiple based cleric with its light based SLAs & Single stat focus (wisdom) seem to be a better fit for a first lifer , light on gear and new to divines.

Max wisdom
Grab maximize and empower early for free boosting of the SLAs would make for a better light spammer.
Single stat focus would help any of the DC casting you might want to dabble in.

Thank you! This is what I was looking for. Looks very new user friendly. Any advice on easy to get gear?

While leveling, 1-11 I suggest either a greatsword, greataxe or quarterstaff (with devotion). Level 12+ you should look for weapons with Impulse and Radiance. If you run Carnival at level 5-ish, the Mask of Comedy gives decent devotion for low levels, isn't very rare and lets you use whatever weapon. Elyd Edge (ML 5) is also a very easy to get devotion item, and it has cha to-hit, so you'll hit more often with it. Unfortunatly it's a rapier, so it's less damage.

Armor-wise, anything that boosts Cha, Wis or Con should be fine. Elfcraft Robes/Armor are easy to make and pretty good for armor. HP and SP items are always good. Don't forget your voice of the master. Once you start getting up in levels, some pretty easy to get gear would be like..

Restored Elfcraft armor, if you have a box, pulling out a Twilight covers just about all your basic spell needs when upgraded (Impulse base, upgrade Radiance on, red-slot devotion). CitW is awful though, so if you don't have it, just stick to scepters. Greensteel Concordant Opposition is really good on FvS' and is potentially easy to make, depending on what ingredients you have stored. Shadowsight (http://ddowiki.com/page/Item:Shadowsight_(Level_27)) is the highest wisdom item I know, but it's not easy to get (EE Mirror Darkly, yuck. At least you only have to get to the optional beholder chest for a chance).

Leaves of the Forest (http://ddowiki.com/page/Leaves_of_the_Forest_(Level_24)) (Any epic version, ideally EH or EE) can be easy to get, and it's very good FvS armor that's likely only surpassed by shadowscale armor or on specific item setups. I was unlucky when looking for it, though (5x Livewood Cores before I got my Leaves), so I'm not sure how hard it is to find.

..For the most part, that should cover things. If you're doing Amrath, pick up a Con+6 False Life +30 belt and you'll be set for quite awhile. Useful items to have are like the Mysterious Bauble or Vile Blasphemy, but they're a little harder to get.

Non traditional evoker light damage fvs build https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthread.php/439977-Healgolem-s-build-saves-with-light-damage-FVS16-MNK2-PALI2

I found the cleric build for light damage to suck compared to this. on this you get a little less damage but substantial other benefits
