    Ultra High Strength Cleric ‘buffed to the hilt’ with a big x4 crit weapon. (Source NWN EE, WoG PW)

    Detail:

    Fun idea combining:

    • Cleric power with 29 caster levels, ‘undispellable’ buffs and extraordinary offensive/defensive bonuses (ie up to +20 AB), 3 bonus cleric feats. ie Darkness/Ultravision for 50% attacker miss chance
    • Trickery and Travel domain for (Extended) Haste and Improved Invisibility (ie. 50% concealment)
    • Ultra high strength plus a x4 crit two handed weapon (ie. CEP’s Mercurial Greatsword or standard NWN Scythe) for big damage especially on critical hits
    • Bard 1 for tumble dump
    • RDD 10 for +8 Str, +2 Con, +4 AC and other bonuses

    Level 18 cleric, five attacks a round with haste/divine power, hitting an enemy with 40 AB with a critical hit dealing 152 damage! (Source NWN EE, WoG Server)

    I use a special trick where cleric (7 see below) 8 and 9 spells are obtained with the bonus cleric feats used with Great Wisdom. This allows maximal power in epic levels at the cost of delayed level 8-9 (7). To be fair those extra spells (Storm of Vengance, Word of Faith) are nice but not essential with the sheer damage output with a huge weapon, defensive cleric buffs plus Darkness / Web / Slow / Hammer of the Gods spells for crowd control.

    I’ve created a balanced version with base 38 Str and a less balanced one with 42 Str.

    I’ve found the balanced version very easy to play. Less balanced one a little harder but still fun and easy to play, but HP needs to be managed.

    Designed for WoG where only chaotic good/chaotic neutral elves and half elves worshipping Sehanine Moonbow can use Travel and Trickery domain. In other environments I would recommend going human for extra skill points, extra HP + bonus feat.

    I previously designed a similar build using Half-orc or Human, called The Bruiser of the Gods, this particular version is designed as an Elf to meet WoG’s requirements.

    The most similar build written by others is Mithdradates’s Blood and Faith (Cleric 26 / Bard 4 / RDD 10). Sehanine’s Mercurial Prelate has higher caster levels, higher strength/AB and gets undispellability at level 25 (instead of 38) which I think is much better (the biggest threat to a cleric is being dispelled and losing all the bonuses), and the delay to spell casting to gain the extra bonuses as discussed. Mithdradates designed it for other environments, for WoG elf is most optimal to get the Trickery / Travel domain.
