My mind hides in dark places, SB they are really secondary healers more so then primary healers cause they one cant spontaniously convert spells to cure spells so they have to use slots of mem cure's, and they can't channel positive energy for even more healy goodness. Though they can serve in a pinch with a few wands.

I keep seeing all these things on the web about how clerics used as healers are being misused. I see quotes like this: "It is generally more useful to spend your time buffing your allies and crowd-controlling enemies than healing" or "Preventing damage is far more effective than healing it after it's been taken." Druids can do both of those things.

Also I guess Oracles (life) make good healers too, though I've never played one.

The min/max optimizing munchkin players hate medical clerics, but that doesn't mean it's misuse. Typically if and optimized build player says something is wrong, then I probably like it.

The healer is really at the heart of what a (good) cleric was traditionally meant to be. I don't see how filling your role can ever be misuse.

Even though I will agree that hit points that were never lost are better than hit points regained, controlling was always meant to be a secondary role for clerics.

I never really understood people that build clerics that aren't actually clerics.
If you want to be a melee character, build a fighter. If you want to cast spells on the enemy, become a sorcerer. If you want to do both, become a paladin.

To me, a cleric that doesn't heal is like a bard that can't carry a tune.

Also a Goodly Cleric can be VERY diverse while also being a prime healer. Like I said, since they can spontaniously convert spells to Cures, they just memorize alot of preventative/Buff/ Control spells then if someone does get facesmashed, they just dump a spell for a cure.

I agree with you all, I mostly wanted to see what the prevailing opinion is. It is true though, that when trying to follow advice a healing focused cleric is discouraged. I agree , that clerics have always been about healing and buffing, so that's what I'd build were I to build one.

Disgust, not defeat.

However, I just rolled 75% of my possible HP, so I think it's a sign from the dice gods to stick it out.

Hey Mystic.

Well I am figuring I'll get most of my feats for my channel energy ability, considering getting a crafting feat but don't want to step on Mystic's character's toes.

Any requests before I commit to anything?
