    Default Cleric Capstone: Can it be better?

    Current Cleric Capstone is...
    ClericDivineIntervention.png
    Cleric Divine Intervention: You can expend a turn attempt to ward your target for five minutes against mortal damage, hit point damage will not lower target hit point total below -9. If the target is knocked unconscious, this effect will heal the target after a few seconds for 10 to 39 hit points and then fade.


    Which seems a lot like Rogue's Original Capstone:
    Rogue Cheat Death: +2 dexterity and a chance of self-resurrection, but this chance drops each time you die and Maruts dislike you.

    Which was deemed garbage and then this was offered...
    Rogue Deadly Shadow: +2 intelligence and 4 additional sneak attack dice.


    Can Cleric's be offered something similar to Wizard's Capstone?
    Wizard Master of Magic: Grants +2 Intelligence and all metamagics you possess cost 1 fewer spell point to use. (Heighten Spell costs 1 fewer spell point per level of heightening.)

    Instead of INT, obviously give us Wisdom?

    Or heck give us a Capstone that gives us like...
    2 More Turn Attempts and a Stacking 15 Spell Power on Healing and Smiting Spells


    As of now...I just cannot see why you would ever go pure Cleric.

    Builds I see a lot now...
    19Cleric/1Barbarian
    18Cleric/2Fighter
    18Cleric/2Monk
    18Cleric/2 Paladin
    17Cleric/2Monk/1Fighter

    All of those builds listed above will do more Melee DPS...and the Clonk will actually have a higher DC due to Ocean Stance (in addition to Evasion)

    did not read OP, but the question is: can it be worse?

    From the raiding perspective it's one of the best capstones as it can save your tank from loosing his ship buffs, so it's rly nothing like rogue capstone.

    From the solo/grind perspective... yeah it kinda sux. Probably a better solution than altering the existing capstone would be to add another alternative like the one rogue has.

    Yup...I think that would be nice.

    Exactly like how ROG has it.

    You can keep DI...
    or take that +2 WIS and -1 sp cost for metas...
    or that +2 Turning and Stacking Healing and Smiting Spell Power

    Personally, I have never really sucessfully used the Current Capstone accept in Abbot (dirty water)
