DM 4 is a melee buff.
An 18/2 CLeric is just way better at melee than a pure Cleric.
+8 Dmg to garbage dps is still garbage DPS.
I was trying to help the OP.
You can play your toon the way you want.
I would guess 75% of the forumites agree that DM4 on a Cleric (especially a human) is a waste.
Here is where your AP should be going (you are spending 4+3+2=9 AP on +8 dmg...I am not counting DM1 against you because it commonly used for Radiant Servant)
I looked at your build...it lacks...
(these 4 are needed for "real" melees"
I assume because you are dumping 9 AP and extra build points into CHR you think you are a melee...
Oh you have a starting 10 STR...
How about you drop WIS to 16 and CHR to 14 and increase your STR to a 15? At least then you could hurt things.
Human Versatility (which is MORE damage than DM4...and can be used for saves too)
Human Healing Amp
Improve/Max your Healing lines
Improve/Max your Divine Lines
Question to you...
Do you max your halfings throwing weapon Attack and Damage just because its there?
Honestly, I just see a ton of weaknesses in your build...in regards to how I play.
We can have totally different play styles. And your can work for you.
