    Default Cleric Capstone: Divine Intervention Preview

    The beloved Clerics of Stormreach gain a new tool in the next module with their Capstone Enhancement for keeping their charges (or themselves) alive.

    Divine Intervention
    Prereq: Level 20 Cleric, 74 Action points spent
    Cost: 2 AP
    Benefit: You are a strong conduit of positive energy, and can expend a turn attempt to ward your target for five minutes against mortal damage - hit point damage will not lower their hit point total below -9. If the target is knocked unconscious, this effect will heal the target after a few seconds and then fade.

    Players that have gone through the Korthos Island experience may remember Cellimas' Protection from Death effect - this is an altered version of that tutorial spell. Essentially, while this effect is on your target, they cannot die from hit point damage. Instant death effects like Implosion or Finger of Death bypass this protection, however, so keep those Deathblock items on, and it fades a few seconds after being forced to activate. Still, that's one less dead person!

    Today's activity is "guess what this enhancement was originally called".

    As normal with previews, duration, cooldown, and effects are still subject to change.

    The subject of this powerful spell is unable to die from hit point damage. While under the protection of this spell, the normal limit of –9 hit points before a character dies is extended without limit. A condition or spell that destroys enough of the subject’s body so as to not allow raise dead to work, such as a disintegrate effect, still kills the creature, as does death brought about by ability score damage, level drain, or a death effect. The spell does not prevent the subject from entering the dying state by dropping to –1 hit points. It merely prevents death as a result of hit point loss. If the subject has fewer than –9 hit points when the spell’s duration expires, it dies instantly.

    Whaaa?

    How does this invalidate an 18cleric/2 monk, for example?

    Basically, if you were to die, it prevents you from dying once, lets you fall unconscious, heal you and then fade away?

    Is there any risk to die during the period where you fell unconscious?

    Gotta speak fromthe other side of the fence here I guess....

    I dont like it at all.....

    If I want to keep myself alive, I'll cast death pact.... If I want to keep my party members alive, I'll keep em alive.. If I fail.. I'll Res em....

    I think the usefullness of this ability is beng exagerated. Once incaped, the ward fades "after a few seconds"

    I guess this would stop the "OMG, I'm at -143 Hit points" DBF failed save...... but other than that, I just dont see it.

    ANd it tied to Turns... Blech..... If you have enough Turns in ya to ward a whole party.. FOr 5 minutes at a time.... you just gave up a bunch of your DV's...... And if your not speced for DV's you probobly wont have enough to even cover the whole party once.

    Please provide an example.. I'll be happy to provide youwith an alternative Tactic....

    Evasion, +3 to yoru Saves, and 2 Feats is WAY better than this capstone.... No doubt about it.

    Seriously FOlks.. What am I missing here???? I see all kinds of people saying this is great.... Whats so great about it? Gimme some exaples where this would be useful... You know.. More useful than a cleric who, You know.. HEALS.....

    So far I'm cool with the capstones. They seem moderately useful but in no way force characters to take 20 levels. Taking the 20 full levels in a spellcasting class already provides reward.
