Long time ago, I made a character to turn undead only, just for fun, wasn't meant to be serious, just some fun. Now, with all the Undead content, are they able to be turned? Tell me if I should get something. Here's my rebuilt build. It's been quite some time since I did one of these, so please, tell me if I'm missing something for what my plan is.

1st Goal: Turn Undead
2nd Goal: Healing
3rd Goal: Positive Spells

Max Possible HD to Turn as well. Feat order did not matter to me, I just took what I wanted soon as I saw it, of course, this would be made in order properly if I decide to do so.

Morning Lord (Sun Elf) can get enhancements to Turn Undead. Any other race will be behind them.

My character is not heavily Turn-specced, but does have 3 Cleric past lives, Turn-boosting gear, and some enhancements, and I can't Turn anything in EE quests. Mob hit dice just balloon up way faster than you get get your Turn bonuses up. Works fine in lower difficulties though.

Ok. Thanks for the information. Do you notice anything I might be missing from my build? ^_^ Also, the past Cleric lives provide +1 HD per past life?

I know it's a joke build, but if you used a PDK and the charisma to att and dam, he'd have a decent backup melee ability for those pesky not-undeads

I have redesigned the build now, on top of putting in enhancements, is what I am doing for my goals in general, or any other suggestions?

Each Clr past life, up to 3 stacking, provides +1 Turn Undead attempt per rest, and you Turn Undead as if you were two levels higher.

Wow. Ok. So really worth it to attempt to stack 3 pls of Cleric if I am going to try this. But first I need to get to 20 on my character then TR to see if this is even worth it.

Turning spec'd undead killer cleric is certainly viable for most content. You should check out this DDOcast episode where there's a lot of good info on turning builds:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z9X5p3qXTXM

The 2nd half of the episode there's a dude who runs an undead turning spec cleric. According to him, if you have 3x cleric past lives, morninglord enhancements and all appropriate gear you can reliably turn all undead up through epic elite three barrel cove. But for the more endgame epic elite, turning won't work reliably (or at all) because the monster's CR is too high to turn - even with all possible turning gear/past lives/enhancements.

Still though, its certainly a viable build except for that endgame EE stuff. A high CHA also gives you a good DC for draconic burst which can give you a nice weapon to use alongside your turning.

That was the plan! Thanks for the info, I'll defly watch this. ^_^

A 2 Paladin splash is also very worthwhile, as the KotC Turning enhancement stack with the Sun Elf ones - not to mention that with stacking Cha so high you get a massive boost to your saves.It may even be worth going 17 Cleric / 3 Paladin, and picking up Sacred Defense to get +25 PRR/MRR.

does the radiant servant turning stack with sun elf as well?

I have a turn spec'd cleric from before the shroud. Max cha and wisdom starting. 2x cleric past lives. Every possible enhancement and feat and every piece of gear (yes, the torch from 3BC too.)

At level 26 in the orchard I spammed 10 turns on a group of zombies. Those 10 turns netted, 2 dead zombies.

For leveling the build is fun and there is enough undead content that you will feel awesome on the way up, but the end game explorer area (not even a quest) is out of reach.

If you only play EH then it might be okay. The problem you will find is if you ever compare it to anything else. For example, if you ever run a fire sorc through thunderholme and then turn around and bring your turn spec'd cleric you will find it sadly lacking. Not only can the fire sorc kill undead faster than a dedicated undead killer, it can also kill everything else faster. You don't even get to be better within the niche of undead killing.

To add insult to injury, take in a twf rogue. Rogues are "known" for being lousy at undead killing right? Put a pair or celestias or light maces in hand and you will find you kill undead faster than a turn spec'd cleric. I wish I was making this up, but I've tried each of these examples myself. (I've used thunderholme a lot for testing undead killing.)

I don't know what level of killing ability would make it worth specializing in turns. For example, if we could boost turn undead to the point where a spec'd "joke" build like you and I both have could turn 8-10 undead per pop at level in thunderholme or the orchard, would it be overpowered? Some would say yes, but then what else can you do with a cleric that heavily spec'd into turn undead? Even if turns were boosted to 3-4 per kills per turn, you would still be better off with almost any other build.

This is just my opinion, but I think a fully spec'd turning cleric, that is running even level elite, should be a nightmare that all undead fear.

I haven't explored the orchard extensively but the times I have been out there, the mobs are around 30-40 CR, which means they are easily no-fail turned. Can even turn more than 1 at a time (iirc). So not sure why you are getting such poor results.

Current possible max CR for turn undead is as follows:


20 Pure Cleric: 47 (48 with imp. turning feat)
Morning Lord: 53 (54 with imp. turning feat)


To give a rough idea of the CR of undead in EE:
- Undead Purple Dragon Knight (Unquiet Graves): CR43
- Undead Drow Necromancer (Unquiet Graves, House Death Undone, Battle of E-Star): CR42-43
- Death Knights (LoD): CR48
- Skeles (LoD): CR45
- Zombies (Black Loch): CR45
- Giant Skeles (Madstone): CR54
- Wraiths & Weeps (FoT): CR42

As you can see, you should be able to turn undead reliably in lower epics, at least until E3BC / EGH.
