    Default Need guidance on general build

    Been playing this game for a few years but adhd has impaired me from leveling beyond 14 once. Got bladeforged now, and want to do a build that will be able to contribute to a team with minimal knowledge.

    Here's what I am running right now

    pally 2/cleric 13

    >str 14
    >dex 6
    >con 12
    >wis 13
    >int 8
    >cha 18
    Put all levels into charisma

    For feats, get adamantine body, empower healing, maximize, quicken, and then just put ther rest into toughness

    for enhancements, get a few bladeforged enhancements and then invest heavilly into the warpriest skilltree.

    How it ends up, I get around 45-55 ac, 300~ hitpoints, decent saves (25-35 unbuffed), decent dps and decent off healing. This should be enough to contribute in general to questing.

    Is your build supposed to be FvS and not Cleric. Level-ups in Charisma seems strange to me if you are not going to get combat feats.

    I'm not sure what kind of input you're looking for. 18 cleric / 2 paladin bladeforged is not a bad combination. What you seem to have is a survivable healer type build with a bit of melee capability.

    I would personally go heavier on the melee side with the following changes. Some of this is just personal preference.

    - Don't go full retard on charisma
    - Invest more in constitution and strength
    - Don't take toughness feats
    - Perhaps drop adamantine body
    - Take power attack, improved critical: slashing and cleaves
    - Radiant servant instead of warpriest
    - Perhaps take one fighter level for 17 cleric / 2 paladin / 1 fighter for the extra feat and haste boost enhancement.

    Edit: Here's my suggestion for the build. It's not the most optimal, but I could see myself having fun with this.

    Cleave and (ameliorating) smite away on the front line. Have the aura on all the time, use quickened/maximised/empower-healed bursts to augment. Heal yourself with the communion of scribing reconstruct.

    Well, hmmm. First off I would switch charisma and strength, going for max strength instead of charisma. Next I would kick constitution up to 14 instead of 12.

    Based on your feat list it appears like you're going for a healbot. I would advise against that, as it's not really needed. Meaning that in many (most?) groups you run, you'll feel like you're not contributing much since most people don't need other people to heal them.

    I'd probably switch the cleric levels to favored soul and swing away with greatswords as a follower of the Lord of Blades.

    Personally, I would not go Bladeforged. Consider a PDK instead, Fighter 1 / Paladin 2 / Cleric X. Similar to the Radiant Titan build.
    https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthrea...-Radiant-Titan
    (Don't be scared by the introduction, 36 point buy is not required for this build at all)

    I would probably keep starting STR, CON, and CHA balanced at around 15-16; few points in WIS (if you don't have tomes) and maybe more INT if you need skills. (Levelups into STR)

    For enhancements, pick up Ameliorating Strike from Warpriest and Burst&Aura from Radiant Servant; and then just passively heal everyone by walking around and meleeing. Very easy to play.
