    Will make a switch then to regear. Maybe move sheltering to new spot.
    It'll all wash out at 30.
    I was running some EE Gianthold tonite. Was doing fair at paralyzingly. Sometimes multiple tries. Think wisdom only at 50 ATM. So some new gear at 27 should push the dc 10 more.
    Plus, oh I forgot. Was gonna wisdom the bow. But not flagged yet at I need to transfer my ingredients over. So that will be in next few levels.

    Default Update6

    Update6
    Level 30. Updated stats on first post.
    Ok so something of a monster cleric, with the right gear.
    Can paralyze anything just about. Good hp, sp and defenses.
    Makes running quests easy, but is no dps monster. But awesome support.
    Made the bow. Still need to insight +7 wis. will do that on another run. Has to be triple earth. Which is good cause I use corrosive. Getting wisdom to 60 with insight or shiradi.
    The only shortcomings is aura turns. Need to slot a cha item. And I can get positive to 600 with a better devotion item. Working on putting it together. Has 11 at 30. Good enough since I rarely use 10 in a run, and they regenerate.
    Plays real easy support, mostly pikes, but good for raids.
    I wasn't impressed leveling it, mostly a gearing and playstyle toon.
    But at 30 it's rocking.
    Decided to take combat archery, since enlarge just isn't needed.
    Running in us for raids and seeing aura tick for 175. Otherwise run in shiradi leveling.

    I wanted to tr into warlock, but might etr and wait it out for slave lords. Got a couple weeks. That could be a couple more etr.

    Overall doesnt mesh as well as my melee cleric for melee support, but this being Kil, he has better gear and tomes, so come out looking better. I think this is a solid support toon.
    And playing paralyzers has been a blast. And dps is about same or better than thf melee. Plus it's just easier targeting and not much running around.
    I can still stand in middle of combat and glow. Did fine in shroud, DOJ and tempest.

    I think this is premier ranged cleric build that's radiant.

    I'll post a gear breakdown.

    Default Update7 gear layout

    Update7
    Gear layout at 30.

    Head. Pansophic circlet
    Neck. Devotion item (looking for 150+)
    Trinket planar compass
    Eyes. Enchant +6 +3
    Armor. Plate mail of celestial sage
    Cloak. Mysterious cloak
    Bracers epic barbettes
    Belt. Open, dodge10 nat armor9
    Ring1. Corrosion +24 +156
    Ring2. Con +11 +5
    Boots. Str/dex +14
    Gloves. Iron mitts
    Weapon. LGS bow +15 +7 wisdom (wis 60 in us, 66 in shiradi)
    Quiver. Epic dynamistic

    Pos 615 (could be 650 with better devotion)
    Hamp 185
    Prr/mrr 160/103
    Dodge 9%

    So this is my layout. Not optimal but covers the bases.
    Looking ATM for better devotion, or will augment. That leave neck open. Could put lions mane in there.
    Barbettes not best but in there.
    Belt not best but good defenses, dodge 9%.
    Con ring needs upgrade, or could go to bracers, opening ring for healing lore/ devotion item. Which opens neck.
    Gloves not best, need hamp double shot maybe, but quiver covers.

    Decided to etr until slave lords come out.

    Decided to tr my main vishantii into this build
    He is a battlecleric,
    But seein he is head of the silver flame jokers
    I thought I had better stay true.
    This will be my quest this year to get him ready for the expansion
    Remember, rise of the clerics
    But this is a deadly cc build that will work better in slavers
    I created Vishs build when there was lag, and he has extra sp
    Now I'm gonna reroll him into a bow build

    Notes
    So sentinel is the clear winner.
    With over double hit points and aura, it is supremely ready for reaper. That's due to the +5 cleric levels.
    However, I am filling out primal Ed, and putting xp into primal,
    So shiradi is my best offensive stance.
    I will like do dailys off destiny, and reap in us.
    I haven't tested much either, so I will report on the main difference in paralyzer, which is only +3. The extra wis in shiradi.

    The other thing I did was craft a trinket. Used a shard and put +4 enchantment on it. Since I had cc goggles of wisdom. And otherwise the increase isn't much from 13 to 21 on insightful enchantment for goggles. So best spread was to put it on a trinket. I could have crafted a wisdom cloak, but the hamp from mysterious is too needed in reaper for healing.

    Now the other thing I'm thinking about is ap.
    I'm thinking of dropping deepwood and putting points in rs for the no max level heals. See I got the +3 levels, so that makes my heals caster level 16, and heal caps at 15. And going uncapped should raise caster level to 25, or 30??
    I get +40 pos from deepwood, that and dex to damage. But I could forego the weapon finesse and just take enough out to get unlimited healing. Thoughts?

    Default Level 25

    Level 26
    Took intensify and positive sp
    Took advantage of buddy weekend to rocket to 26
    Ran dailys and es and gh
    No reaping
    Waiting for today's patch to fix epic xp
    Kinda fast tracking it to 30
    Got a reaper group waiting there
    And they need a cleric bad

    That still seems to be the state of the game,
    Where are the clerics?
    Must be cloistered in guilds
    I rarely see them running naked in pugs
    But there are,
    But they're still not too good a healers
    But this will take time
    With the influence of reaper,
    There will be a greater need for healers

    Vish is doing ok,
    I'm not seeing the paralyzers one hit in EE
    Multiple hits to get them
    Still running about a 20+17+5 paralyzer
    Been running in off destiny too
    Filling up primal Ed
    Got them near all maxed out, and 6mil karma too
    Then I'll switch to sentinel and dc
    Also almost have 6mil martial
    Havent opened arcane yet on vish
    So I'll have some options when I tr
    Likely a divine
    But I'll probably keep him at cap for a long while
    Unless changes,
    When they update clerics, I'm hoping capstones will be worthwhile

    So reaping in divine
    More survivability either way
    Moar hit points,
    Maybe I'll twist in sacred ground too
    That would be double dipping
    I've seen the effect of a radiant on a group
    Everyone tends to gather around
    That's good for reaper,
    The group staying tight
    But this is an archer cleric
    So the vision originally,
    Was perching the shroud
    But now that I've got aura in epics,
    I can keep it up the entire quest...
    I find myself with a different tactic
    I usually spray paralyzers,
    Then move up to melee range, just at the edge
    For the aura to get the melees
    And continue to paralyze at danger close
    It's working great
    And I'm getting much better at switching stances,
    And tossing heals
    Healing is a lost art
    Its quite a job to keep people alive in reaper
    Almost takes a dedicated healbot,
    But the aura reassures everyone,
    And they take advantage of it
    The whole point being
    If radiants enter the reaper playground
    It will go a lot easier
    For everybody

    Not completely maxed out, but reaper ready
    Doesnt have lvl30 gloves, but they're good enough until I decide on a more final layout. Gloves would be dex15,hamp61,ins devotion79. And then I'd swap Pansophic for hardened hide to make a 5pc slavers set.
    Also need a legendary prowess. Using heroic ATM.
    Otherwise I'm at best numbers for a paralyzer build.
    the other thing I was gonna do was put a supreme 6 tome on him. He has 2 and 3, would add 3 to wisdom.
    The only other thing I could do would be run in primal for +6 wisdom.
    But sentinel adds 5 cleric levels, and survivability. Paralyzers are a secondary ability that is superseded by wizards cc, but acts as great cc without one.
    A word on paralyzers. I was running EE content, and running into difficulty while leveling. Not max gear at level, using cannith lvl21 stuff. But it made me doubt the build. Now I'm reaping, and finding I have to hit multiple times for a paralyze to stick. I know this is primarily a wisdom issue, but I'm running max wisdom without wis Ed. So I've relegated myself to secondary cc. Primarily I am a aura healer. It's a great concept, but now I'm reaping, and I'm thinking a pure cleric would be a better option. But it's still a great build, just not as effective as it was in heroics, where everything was a one hit paralyze.?*
    Still, a priest of the silver flame.
    I've also considered other splits, such as 4/1 ranger fighter, losing the stalwart defense. I'm also thinking I could make this viable on a pure, but it's feat starved. Because I'm feeling the need for death pact as a safety, but I'm wondering, the Rez timer in reaper may be longer than the accept time for pact. Especially high reaper, the Rez timer is longer. It's a conundrum.

    But I'm happy vish is back at cap, and delving into daily reapers.

    My very first toon here 11 years ago was a bow using Cleric

    REASON

    I wanted to use bows and stay far away from mobs/bosses.

    I also didn't want Clerics to have to chase me down to heal me ( PS they dont and never did )

    SOLUTION

    Let's build a max lvl cleric that uses bows and call her Damiya.

    Well ....

    She wasn't great at healing

    She wasn't great with bows

    She was really just kind of average at everything.

    11 years later she now sits as a 22nd lvl first life Archer and has been moved to the perma parked toon list.

    What I discovered over the years of playing many MANY Archer cross classes is that when it really comes down to it, as far as ranged combat goes .... pure seems to be the way to go.

    Don't get me wrong I still enjoy playing

    Alexsys - 12/6/2 Moncher Build
    Eliyze - 16/4 Bardcher Build
    Cassiee - 12/6/2 Fighter Archer Build
    Kaeylee - 20 Archer BUT was old school bowbarian ( loved that build )
    Danicca - 20 Archer First Life but has all the Epic Archer gear
    Maryssa - 15/5 Arti/Rogue repeater / maxed crafter build

    However my mains Katnyss, Nattalie, Ryleagh are all pure archers and are simply better toons at being archers than my above noted builds.( I'm sure all thier past lives help ).

    Sure there are a couple benefits to some of the first 6 toons I listed be it 10k stars / AC / Burst Damage / CC but nothing enough for me to say " I'm gonna bring Alex into Reaper instead of Katnyss !! "

    I'm not saying cross class builds don't work, because for sure there are some incredible builds out there. I just don't think healing/arching go hand in hand.

    Your build looks great and I may give it a shot for my cleric lives on Kat. I'm just pretty sure I'm going to re-discover the same issues I had with my cleric/Ranger 11 years ago.

    Sorry the middle of my manyshot, you can pretty much guarantee I'm not coming to heal you if your health is low ..... stay alive for 20 seconds please.

    Hehe

    This is a wisdom based paralyzer build
    So cleric goes hand in hand with it.
    I do average damage with corrosive arrows on manyshot.
    But built it as a paralyze cc secondary option.
    Which it performs, but spell cc is more effective.

    There have been moments reaping when the wizard gets killed and we lose cc.
    At that point it is an immediate stopgap for a party wipe.
    It performs as a healer great, not so as a paralyzer.
    Of course, my expectation is one hit one kill, so having to target one mob for multiple shots means others are getting away. Works fine with low mob density, but like in slavers reaping I found it to be lacking.
    I would encourage you to run it. It's a solid build. Lots a hit point, lots a heals, and can paralyze.

    I agree the build looks fun

    For sure that's gonna be my 3 cleric lives. I just ETRd / HTRd Katnyss and am only lvl 3 presently so I will give it a try.

    However I know that if you wanted to set up an Archer to Paralyze a monk is a fun way to go as it's also wis dependant. Even as a first life Alexsys can keep pretty much everything immobilized full time running EE at 30th lvl. I have not attempted Reaper with this toon yet

    ( and you don't have to stop pew pewing to heal )

    Again I wasn't trying to " shoot down " your build, I just find healing/arching a difficult combo.

    Have a great night

    Default Leve 30 reaping

    Lvl 30 reaper.
    Ap
    32 radiant. Core4,tier5. Aura.
    22 arcane archer. Paralyzers.
    13 stalwartd. +20% hit points.
    8 deepwoods. +40 pos.
    5 human. Healamp.

    Took greater focus enchantment at 30.

    Twists
    1 Healing power
    1 endless faith
    1 cocoon
    2 +3 enchant magister

    The reaper version of vish.
    Running 4s and under for dailys.
    Needing the right group.
    Seeing selection as being critical to success.
    A healer.
    A wizard.
    A monk?*
    or tempest
    A warlock
    And what's missing,
    A tank

    Usually another warlock,
    They abound
    Tentacles and holds are critical
    Snafu otherwise
    Because,
    No tanks
    Yet
    Where they be?
    It's gotta be more thankless than the healer

    Having to hotbar masses again
    I need another rotation of cures
    I got maximize and intensify to crank them
    Will do some testing

    But the issue is
    Melees go faster
    And time is still of the essence
    Sure, reaper 10 is being done
    But how long did that take?

    Yes, the games hard again
    And new tactics are needed to overcome
    The challenge
    Don't fear the reaper

    Some tricks
    The ui of a healer.
    I keep two bars vertical on my right side.
    I keep the team list right next to it.
    So there is shortest distance between clicking on a member and clicking a heal
    So I normally rotate heal and cocoon.
    Normally I can keep two targets alive
    And I have aura
    So I stand danger close to melee
    But I'm semi tank with?*
    2000 hp, 150prr, 100mrr.
    Low AC. Can't fix that much til slavers set.
    So I have easy ability to heal melees
    But now more are coming
    So I've set up an additional three, clw, cmw, csw
    So I'll be cycling them and heals
    Two groups
    I might only need one cycled all the time
    So that increases efficiency?*
    Reducing the number of clicks
    And my 2500 sp is purely for heals
    So far I'm going full out?*
    And not hitting empty
    So that bodes well

    It pays to know your group too
    Who is squishy and who is tough
    Who can handle themselves?*
    And who needs an eye
    This comes in static and guild
    Pugs are rather free for all
    And good luck getting a good mix
    Again, lotta warlocks

    so, as what is needed,
    A call to tanks
    A friend for the healer

    *sigh*

    I might just have to start working on my archer character again, she started out as something like this initially, and I enjoyed it even though it wasn't that impressive.

    Great build, Vish, looking forward to it.

    Update on vish

    Domains are coming,
    Will go trickery
    But it will break my build
    I'll have to go 14/4/2
    For the mass charm
    Too sweet to pass up for reaper
    So I'm going to lose the toughness
    +25 prr/mrr and about 300 hp at 30

    Well, I'm cc and glow
    So I don't really need it
    Although paralyzers draw aggro
    But its uber cc, so I'll live

    Hoping they hand out LR 1 or 3
    Likely just an LR,
    And I'll have to tr

    I've still got to fill Ed's too
    Needed sheath for raid,
    But not filled in
    Whoops
    Gonna run some dailys and fix it
    I don't run vish much
    Not much endgame ATM
    But I do see shroud and new raid up,
    Once in while
    Will be better for ravenloft
    By time domain drop and expansion,
    I should get vish tr
    And then I'll have to reconsider again
    When the new meta comes out
    Still looking forward to warpriest changes
    That will be crucial...

    Just about finishing up my Radiant/Evo Cleric life and am going to try this for my second Cleric. You are taking Maximize for your burst? What are you taking Extend for? Do you feel the 13 Cleric and 5th level spells is worth it over 6 Ranger which gives manyshot and sniper shot (going 11 pts in DWS)? I like your in depth updates, great job.

    Maximize and intensify are for bursts
    But I hardly ever burst
    With about 24 turns, endless turning,
    You can keep aura up full time off one charge
    Kinda oh **** button for reaper

    I've been considering new split for domains
    Maybe 14/6 ranger,
    Since really you don't need maximize, nor intensify
    That would Free up one slot heroics
    I generally take extend on my clerics
    I like one long timer rather than recast
    And on a 13 split it makes buffs 26,
    Enough for a quest
    So maximize no, extend yes

    It's an awesome cc build, with heals
    Very manageable in play

    I would say go 6 ranger,
    That allows tier5 in heroics leveling

    4 ranger (diehard)
    5 ranger (precise shot)

    26 sp pos
    27 blinding speed
    28 doubleshot
    29 fount of life
    30 Celestia
    Open

    This is the revamp for domains
    Left out maximize and intensify
    One slot open at 30

    The ap spread will be different
    No stalwart d frees up 13 ap
    Prob 2 ap into paralyzers,
    3 ap into human
    Leaves 8 ap for deepwood?

    Also, leveling will be easier with access to tier5
    Either that, or get aura sooner than 20
    A little bit more wiggle room with this build
    Squishier, but still as potent
    Since this is not a dps build, but paralyzer

    Note - My experiences with this build are only for Heroic Reaper questing. I built with no intention of running epics. I went with Drow because this character always more less is a Drow. I don't think race really matters.

    STR 8
    DEX 15
    CON 14
    INT 12
    WIS 17
    CHA 12

    I have played through level 10 so far. Progression has been
    1 Cleric
    2-5 Ranger
    6 Cleric
    7-8 Ranger
    9 Fighter
    10 Cleric

    Feats are:
    1 Empower Healing (for a empower CLW spell)
    3 PBS
    6 Zen Archery (really needed for hit chance to get rid of glancing blows)
    9 IC Ranged and Extend (extend is actually quite good as it gets your Ranger spells and Nightshield over 10 mins)

    Through 10 I have 22 APs into AA (for Para Arrows), 11 AP in DWS (for Sniper Shot) and 1 AP into RS. As you see I am basically a Ranger. I can Para everything but rarely do so. DPS with imbues is very high. Can solo Reaper quests. In groups you can top tier DPS or Para everything if you have more melees to give them something to do and make it very easy. 6 Ranger is key because it gives you not only Manyshot but also a 2nd spell which is fairly important since Rangers have very good L1 spells. Current spell load out is:

    Cleric - CLW, Nightshield, Remove Fear, Summon Monsters (good for agro mitigation at times)
    Ranger - Jump, Ram's Might
    For L2 Cleric spells at 10 I added CMW, Resist Energy (people always die and need this in Reaper) and Lesser Restoration (could use wands and slot in Bull's Strength if you don't want to slot a STR item and need it for carry capacity)

    So would I not be doing just as much or more DPS as a pure Ranger? I don't know, maybe? But from play I can tell you the empowered CLW is vital in Reaper play as is the Nightshield. A ranger can wand both of course. Jump too comes into play, much nicer to have Jump (both in points from Ranger then the actual spell) which really helps when you're a ranged build. My gut feeling is that I have a lot more utility with this build than a pure Ranger in terms of helping an overall Reaper group. I'm done with Ranger levels now so I'll see how/if the Cleric begins to shine through.

    Bows - Nicked Longbow at L2 untll Silver Longbow at L8. Petrifying Longbow at L12 looks good if I'm going to be in Para mode (Para and Petrify, but maybe that's overkill?). L14 either Bow of Sinew or Unwavering Ardency (if you have it I don't). I highly recommend Sniper Shot from DWS, it is a huge increase to DPS. There is also a lot of positive spell power in the DWS tree.

    Ya, sounds good
    Too bad domains not yet
    But I will relevel vish when they come out

    Ya going higher into cleric will bring u spells
    But don't expect much out of trees
    It's a radiant build
    But don't have a good ap spread till 20
    You can sacrifice your archer to go cleric
    But aura will be weak without levels

    So I advise going tier5 archer
    I'm interested in results
    The dps as archer for vish at cap is actually decent
    I run in dc and get good adds out of the epic moment
    So it's good back up on the red names
    But other than that it's aura and paralyze

    Thinking about mass charm
    Will likely need to add heighten at 24
    And push back greater enchant to 30
    Seeing how charms work in reaper
    It will be a feather in the hat for a cleric
    Should have good DCs for it

    Thanks for the feedback awesomesauce
