I'm a new to DDO F2P player and gathered that a battle cleric would be pretty much the best solo character given certain restrictions (no WF, no monk, no drow, no tweaked gear, etc.). Feel free to point me in a different direction if that is incorrect.
I'm now in search of the actual build to use. 1.) I tend to favor a melee style, but not necessary if a pure caster style is hands down much more powerful. 2.) I would also prefer human, but again if dwarf is by far the better race to play...I can be convinced. 3.) I think I'd like some kind of multi-class like Cl17/Fi2/Rg1 type or whatever...again if pure cleric 20 is definitely more powerful...so be it.
If possible a guide including play tips, when to take which feats, which spells to use, what gear to look for, etc. would be great. I'd prefer if the build was actually proven (like successfully soloed as much as is possible) as opposed to theory. I'm not concerned about innovating something myself...yet. I'm looking to get through as much content as possible solo and then decide what direction I want to go from there.
So...looking for powerful and easy to play...much more focus on the power level though.
Thanks guys, I really hope you can help. I'm getting excited to start playing.
