    I guess I was just thinking about somewhere like the water tunnels with blade traps in Hiding in Plain Sight, where you wouldn't have a place to step out and re-cast your Aura before it wore off.

    Now that's a good point. I got the level wrong for Inspire Competence earlier (Levels 1-4 are muddled for me since most of my characters are Veterans), but 2 would be nice for the +1 to skills from Focusing Chant.

    I'll have to work out the 18/2 Lifebard build on the planner later and see how it compares to the original in terms of Swim score.

    I want to know if this build could make it through a quest like Tomb of the Shadow Guard or Tempest's Spine without Water Breathing or Underwater Action. If nothing else, I'd have the former, but I'm planning on avoiding the latter because I'm better than that! Now, in a group I'd be sure to cast Water Breathing--showing off your mad Swim skills isn't as effective if you let the party die.

    If you're worried about weapon proficiencies for a Lifebard, Master's Touch is a bard spell as well, apparently.

    Bard 3/Cleric 17 allows Merfolk's, Focusing Chant and Master's Touch. And Mass Heal, obviously.

    Meh, gimps without a high swim score deserve to die. (I guess this is why they won't let me be a lifeguard, huh?)

    Maybe the best cleric build I've ever seen.

    +1 despite glaring flaw.

    The build totally lacks an aggressive, comic-book-villain style name. Swimcleric? Come on, man, you can do better than that. Haven't you ever heard of The Monster, The Exploiter, the Blitz, or the unbeatable Forumator?

    Fix the name and I'll double your rep (not really, but it sounded good).

    Still...+1!

    The swim cleric also needs a hairy chest, and is constantly slowed when running (slow-motion FTW)

    Found a missing, outdated or better graphic on the planner, let me know here.

    Is Liquidator taken?


    Edit: Myddo says it's an archived character, not sure when it would be back up as a choice.

    If it were a half orc it could be a hOrca.

    And on the subject of a cool (or possibly just stupid) name, I submit Baywatch Behemoth.

    Apparently I must spread reputation around before giving to you again.

    In terms of the name, the build is called the Lifeguard. "Swimcleric" is just a general reference to all cleric builds that recognize the importance of swim. Like there are melee WF FvS, but then there's a specific melee WF FvS build called Soul Survivor. I definitely encourage brainstorming other build names; there are far too few swimcleric builds out there right now.

    I do personally like the character name (Swimclerik the Swimming Cleric) just because it's absurdly long and quite descriptive. I only wish I could have had Swimcleric, but that name isn't allowed (IIRC it isn't taken, it's just not allowed--possibly no class names allowed in the first name?).

    I'm pretty sure a Lavadiver should have at least 5 levels of Favored Soul for the +10 stacking bonus to Fire Resistance. And maybe rogue or ranger levels for the Desert/Fire Trap Lore enhancements. I may need to think about this a little.

    Now, you see, this is when a Lavadiver build would be useful!

    Talking

    hordo, you need to go buy a coffee screen. IE, one of those hanging things that are made of plastic, stick to the top of the monitor, and also cover the keyboard, while still allowing typing and viewing, if you install it correctly, you can make the coffe go into your co-worker's extra sock drawer.
