My cleric is a healer, turner, offensive caster. He does not melee (except crates and barrels, he whoops up on those.)
I've taken the positive, light and sp boost from the first tier and I'm planning to take either 5 or 6 points of wisdom to boost my DCs.
I'm not sure what else to take. Much of EA is melee oriented. Then judgement line looks interesting, but I'm not sure how it works in practice.
