    Default Warpriest Vanguard 17cleric/3Paladin

    This build is my rather classic approach on a Sword-and-Board-Cleric and it very much feels like playing a “true battle cleric”: A very durable build with good strength, full healing spells (up to quickened mass heals) and enough DPS/utility to not feel like a “healbot”. I don’t have to raid-heal from a safe distance but can stay in the heat of combat and contribute to the DPS while healing or even tank the boss. The paladin levels and the shield bolster the defenses and get us a high DC stun. The enhancement points are spend in Warpriest, Vanguard, Knight of the Chalice and Sacred Defender. I didn’t bother with Divine Disciple or Radiant Servant.

    This build is not made for maximum power level - that would be a paladin 14+ build like the Steelshrine or at least a heavy splashed cleric. But this build is a good contribution to any group or raid up to high level epic elite content and can solo EH stuff. The shieldstun and Exalted Cleave offer enough DPS against trash and I stack Divine Punishment, Vulnerability and Purification on bosses. Healing comes from Sacred Ground, Ameliorating Strike and (mass)heals when needed. This build easily to play and gear from the start. It works in most EDs, does not need pastlives, rare gear or expensive tomes.
