    Default 18 Cleric /2 monk: Power attack or greater 2 weapon fighting?

    So, i'm doing my cleric life, splashing a couple of monk lvls for evasion and the 2 feats. Feats should be (in random order):

    -Toughness
    -Empower healing
    -Maximize
    -2wf
    -i2wf
    -stunning fist
    -quicken
    -heighten
    -PA or g2wf????
    -past life:wizard
    -spell focus:evo

    Considering i'm maxing wisdom, is it better to take PA or g2wf?

    Thx for the advices

    I would go for GTWF.

    It will give more chances to land SF.

    You may do a little less damage if you strength is low and you don't use melee damage bonus items, but it's not a huge difference even if so. And landing those stuns or using wraps for debuff before using destruction or something will benefit more from GTWF.

    My opinion, anyway.

    Just curious, but I thought I'd read that PA + Cleave + Great Cleave would be better than the THF line? (Note: This could be entirely wrong). But I'm pretty sure Cleave/Great Cleave applies weapon effects 100%, so it's more consistent?

    Plus they still work even if you decide to turtle up and end up using a 1 hander. (Rare for a monk in stance, I know! But the option is there.)

    Why not splash ftr or wiz for an extra feat so you can take both?

    @Dandonk: aye, was thinking the same..melee is going to be more a nice extra to save some sp and stun mobs to lock them down, but if the dps difference between PA and g2wf is huge, i might take PA Thanks for the advice

    Aye, but i'm talking about 2wf

    @unbongwah: you mean 17clr/2monk/1ftr or wizard? I could, but losing spell points, spell slots and 1 spell penetration doesn't seem worth it..

    I'd like to add that i usually TRed Hazrael as soon as i hit 20, but this time i want to remain at cap a little to gather some epic stuffs and start capping some epic destinies. Epic Hards are a joke anyway, so the question was more focused on which one between PA or G2wf is better for EE

    Does the wiz PL add enough to this build to be worth dropping the extra melee DPS from having both feats? You only took one SF, so you won't have max DCs regardless.
