Ok so my toon Ziffin has 3FvS and 3Sorc PL's. I will have my 3rd Wiz PL here very soon. With those PL's in mind...and knowing I have TONS of Sorc gear...what would be a good build for simply getting 3 PL's done?

I know with my FvS I just got Blade Barrier and the rest was cake as far as soloing to 20.

Anything I should consider with a Cleric as far as getting to lvl 20 3 times?

There's no reason you can't do the same with a cleric; if anything, Divine Disciple makes it even easier, since you get SLAs that FvS don't. Max WIS, usual metamagics, spam SLAs until you get Blade Barrier then use it to get to cap - rinse, repeat.

Awesome thats what I was hoping for. i loved playing the FvS...very durable toon that I could zerg any dungeon I wanted with.

Yes, Maximized Empowered Holy Smite SLA isn't quite Fireball, but it'll serve you well in levels 6-10. And, nicely, Cleric get Blade Barrier a level earlier than FvS.

I was very pleased with the performance of Max-Emp'd Cleric SLAs in heroics. They lose some oomph in epics but did great until the mid levels, so if you are focusing on a quick 3 PLs they'll treat you very well. Because of the SLA cooldowns there are gaps in your DPS so you may want to slot a couple of cheap nukes as filler or at least carry a decent weapon to thwack things.

Holy Smite doesn't do a ton of damage but it is noticeable, and if you have a decent DC then it also Blinds most enemies which gives you an effective 50% Concealment bonus. I would recommend working in Heighten so you can boost its DC just for that.

There aren't a lot of WIS-to-dmg weapons (http://ddowiki.com/page/List_of_weapons_with_unusual_attack_or_damage_mods #Melee_weapons) in DDO, but you may wish to farm for a couple before you TR, like Stave of the Seer, Scepter of Healing, and Forgotten Light. Shamanic Fetish (http://ddowiki.com/page/Shamanic_Fetish) is great for an Evo / light DiDi since it has both Radiance and Devotion. I'm presuming you've got some decent Combustion gear banked away, but if not, you might want to farm up a couple of Cloaks of Flames (http://ddowiki.com/page/Item:Cloak_of_Flames) too; that would come in handy with Flame Strike SLA.

As for feats, assuming pure human cleric, I would go: Max (1), Emp (1), Quicken (3), Emp Heal (6), Heighten (9), Extend or Enlarge (12), wiz PL (15), SF:Evo (18) - mostly so you can Twist in DC bonuses from Magister & DI while you token-farm before you HTR.

Actually that jogs my memory - I was underwhelmed by the Flamestrike SLA. I was much happier once I specced into Radiant Servant tier 5 for the fire-and-forget self-healing of the Positive Energy Aura instead. You'll have BB before getting the Flamestrike SLA anyway, and Flamestrike is a bit lost because of that.

OTOH the DC and CL bonuses from T5 DiDi are decent, and you can't actually get both T5 RS and maxed out Holy Smite SLA from T4 DiDi until late in level 14.
