    Default Maul wielding cleric/barb, asking for feedback

    This is the build I've thought:
    - race: aasimar Scourge (any FR race for access to silvanus)
    - 14 cleric for Silvanus and war domain, for holy sword
    - 6 barb for Ravager Tier 5 +2 threat range (It works without raging)
    Usual feat for THF
    At level 20 mauls get crit profile: 14-20 x4
    At Epic levels add overwhelming crit. + LD goodies (devastating crit. And pulverizer)
    At Epic levels mauls get crit profile: 13-20 x4; 19-20 x6

    Any advice will be appreciated, especially by people who already tried this soli. Thanks

    Ravager t5 and holy sword both give competence bonuses to crit range, so don't stack. Your end up with 15-20/x4 in heroics, 14-18/x4, 19-20/x6 in epics. If you swap to frenzied berserker t5 (+2 crit multiplier, also doesn't stack with holy sword), you'd have 16-20/X5 heroic, 15-18/X5, 19-20/x7. Ravager: 25 crit units, berserker: 28 crit units.

    As to how viable either of those is? No idea.

    One idea I've been tossing around is mixing those with Fighter, but I haven't fleshed it out into a full build yet.

    8 Fighter / 6 Barbarian / 6 Cleric gives...

    - +1 competence crit range from 11 points Kensei
    - +2 sacred crit range from 6 levels Cleric
    - +2 competence crit multiplier from 40-ish points FB
    - 5 more feats than a fighter-less build (PA/C/GC, THFx3, IC. Potential for MP (Weapon Focus / Spec), PRR (Heavy Armor feats) or DCs (Tactical feats)
    - +25 PRR for 8 points Stalwart Defender, with options for up to two of +20% competence HP (probably not in epics), +6 Str, +6 Con at 13 / 23 points invested

    That stuff is for cc groups
    Hardly needed anyway on held monsters
    Vishantii (the bird man)
    Kil (heroic and epic completionist)

    Looks good just change your domain and you have a solid crit profile anyways. Should do some impressive damage for a cleric

    Whoops. And Frenzied Berserker's healing requires rage. Maybe I'll rethink that Fighter 6...

    Ravager would still work with 6 fighter. +2 crit range and healing from ravager t5, +1 crit multiplier from strike with no thought, and you can take whatever domain you want from cleric, or even go favored soul instead.

    Edit: You can get this split (6+ fighter, 6+ cleric/fvs, 5+ barbarian) on a pdk without needing to reincarnate out of your iconic's base class.

    Could also use war domain as originally stated and holy sword to get +1 crit multplier and keep the 14 levels of cleric if that is the original build goal.
    Ravager has some other useful Tier 5s as well to complement healing such as blood strength.

    this sounds interesting but my main question to this is, what cleric spells or abilities are hindered while raged? like lets say I wanted radiant servant tree for aura. Could I be raged and have an aura too with blood strength?

    The only cleric healing that works while raged that i have heard of (idk if they still work):
    Divine healing
    Ameliorating strike
    Unyielding Sovereignty if follower of the Sovereign Host cleric lvl 6 granted feat.

    Keep the original Ravager build and change domain. Destruction domain allows you to cast while raging, along with some other hit bonuses

    Default Looking at a variant of this

    How effective instead of Barb/Cleric would the Barb/Druid be using a greataxe?
