I've got a drow cleric that I'm planning to TR into a human. I don't think drow is the worst choice but there are some things to be gained by going human as well as the 2 extra build points. So far I have enjoyed being a generalist so I'm going to stick it out. Still I've got some real questions about casting. I'm seriously thinking about changing a few feats and enhancements to include spell penetration and/or spell focus.

What I really need to do is narrow it down to which feats I'm actually taking. I'm not really worried about which levels I take them at. The only ones that are locked in as necessary in my mind are toughness, empower healing and maximize. Anything else can be swapped out if I want to go for spell penetration, spell focus, etc... I took the smiting line for higher DP damage but will probably take it out since I'll need spell penetration to land any CC. I guess if I can get a decent DC on stuff like greater command I would have to go all out for that. Is that an achievable goal? Will I have to give up my title as "generalist". I don't mind being at the bottom in terms of melee dps but I like being able to hit stuff.
In the next post I'm going to include my current gear and maybe get some input on what I should be looking for to improve that.
