    Lightbulb Radiant Purple Nightmare - TWF Melee Cleric

    Hello everyone,

    Let me present to you a build that I got inspired to do after my Friend TR'ed into the Radiant Titan build (https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthread.php?t=427304) by Sirgog.
    This build is centered around Charisma and uses it for everything - Atk/Dmg, Saves, Bursts and UMD for example.
    The main weapons, as the title says, is a pair of Nightmares. (http://ddowiki.com/page/Item:Nightmare,_the_Fallen_Moon)
    HP regeneration should be pretty nice while having Cleric Aura on and dual-wielding weapons with Vampirism.

    Ladies, gentlemen and warforged; I give to you
    Radiant Purple Nightmare

    Thumbs up Interesting

    Well, haven't myself made a charisma based melee, but that looks interesting. Hopefully it's also viable, as I have to run with you

    Cool Update

    Just did my 20th Shroud, so ready to TR now.
    ...Well, except for that TR Cache that needs to be cleared.

    If anyone got any last minute suggestions, I'm all ears.

    One of the issues I have with my 12Clr/6Ftr/2Pal Radiant Tank is that for some foes there are no good slashing weapons to use. The Truthful One is a good example. This means that I sometimes will reset my enhancements for Divine Might so I can use various weapons instead of being locked into just 4.

    Smile Tr

    Got my last Shroud done (with the help of a few cards and a Raid Timer Bypass Hourglass ) and I'm now a level 15 PDK.

    Here's a Screenshot taken an hour after my TR:




    I will (maybe ) try to keep you posted on how it works out.

    Cool Build Update

    Here comes the one-and-a-half-year-update!
    Yesterday I got my character to level 20, so I thought it would be a good moment to give a little update to my build.
    I used a Lesser Reincarnation because of all the major updates that have impacted the game in many a way since I planned my build.
    The most important change I've done to the build is going from TWF to SWF with an orb.
    The main DPS weapon I've planned to use is the new Epic Spinal Tap - although Nightmare is still a good option. The best orbs currently for this build are Epic Blazing Sun or a TF orb.

    With the new PRR system that came out when I TR'd into this build (MRR didn't even exist then) and with other big changes that have taken hold, I'm open to any new suggestions on how to optimize the build. I've chosen to take Ameliorating Strike, so, that + Aura + Vampirism should be some pretty good HP regeneration - although it probably won't be enough on EE.

    IMO, a good idea for keeping your health bar mostly red on EE is Renewal (obviously only works while running in US).
    With Sightless and Epic Blazing Sun (and any EPLs you got) you can get your PRR to 100+.

    So, here's the current build: (could be enhanced with better tomes)
