    Question Thinking about TRing into a cleric. Need some help and advice

    Hello.
    On the way to completionist I think I want to TR into a cleric (Or rather, anything that is not a melee because I'm on my 3rd melee life right now).
    My past lives will be Sorcerer, wizard, barbarian, paladin and fighter.
    I want to be able to be more than just a healbot thought the leveling process, maybe though epic leveling as well. I'm not sure I'll stay at epic levels or just TR again once I hit 20, so let's assume I will TR.

    There are obviously only 2 paths to go with which are not pure healbot, spell caster or melee focused.

    I need to know which of the above is more viable and easy and fun to play, also I will need some build suggestions, including gear.

    I have access to all the regular races (Not those new ones, I haven't purchased the new pack)
    I also have crafting levels of ~100 so I'll be able to make myself good gear at first.


    All in all, I just want a fun build to have through leveling that will also be able to heal a party decently.
    I have a level 20 cleric that is nothing more than a healbot, his spells DC suck and his strength is way too low to swing anything, I don't want that.

    Thank you in advance!

    Both are extremely viable, and both can still be excellent healers.

    For a DC casting cleric, I'll direct you to EllisDee37's excellent Necro Cleric For New Players thread. It's not only for new pure players -- it's just a good introduction to a basic casting cleric.

    For a melee cleric that retains 9th level spells (Mass Heal), I'll suggest SirGog's Radiant Titan, which is a human 17 clr/2 paladin/1 fighter split. The build thread is a little less detailed, but that's mostly just because there's some flexibility in level order.

    It's very, very easy to have a cleric capable of healing a party well. It's almost harder not to be able to heal.

    They're both fun to play. A melee Cleric might get through the lowest levels faster, but a caster Cleric is awesome in higher-level Heroic quests. Either will be fine, though.
