Hoping by the end of the month I'll be done TRing and be ready to go back to in epic content, but could use some advice and general tips as for which direction I should really be getting into.
I build I plan on using is 12/13 cleric, 4 paladin, 4/3 Monk designed to abuse Radiant Aura (and other passiven self healing abilities).
Originally (way back in the day) I had planned to use Unyielding Sentinel. Under todays standards I would/could be healing myself for 200hp a tick (non-crit). Actually, if I really wanted to go all out, I could hit myself for almost 300 a tick which doesn't include vampirism, fists of light, Divine Healing among other passive healing stuffz.
Updards of 400+ HP healed a tick... passively seems awesome. But the more I planned to heal myself the less of a role I was going to fill. I don't plan on being a party healer (not that I couldn't service in a pinch of course). I could've worked as a tank, but with players constantly dealing damage in the multi thounsands... no amount of threat generation is likely to work.
So, I wanted to get some DPS back and heres is where my head starts to spin. Going out of US drops my Aura to about 100 hp a tick (due to the loss of the 5 extra divine caster level). Which seems lackluster after reading how much damage (no exact amounts found, but it appears that I'm likely to die quickly) EE mobs do, but with the amount of EE mob HP... my gear might break before I'm done killing anything.
But as an FYI too, The only unmoveable twist I have right now is 10% Heal Amp from Exalted Angel. everything else is optional. Other twists would likely be Sense Weakness and Tunnel Vision most likely if I kept US (I'm open to suggestions here as well )
I guess my actual quesiton. Stay US thinking my dps will be enough without an epic moment or cut the healing aura in half and gain an epic moment that is actually worth something?
PS> I know some will ask what else is in the build and while I'm happy to share, major adjustments will be made to the build to fit the chosen Epic Destiny so its a bit pointless. If it mattters that much, assume I have everything I could possibly need gear wise (i don't but I will get it).
