DDO : Battle Cleric Solo Build

Solo capability in DDO is much determined by build. And the Battle Cleric has been a favorite amongst players. The Battle Cleric is a Cleric that can do melee damage and take a beating. Clerics are good for soloing because of their healing skills and buffs and they fact that they can wear plate armor, all this makes them pretty durable. Giving them melee capabilities is done through giving them high STR and giving them melee feats ( Bastard Sword Khopesh Proficiency being the most important). The build below is a pure cleric build with high STR and Khopesh Proficiency but you can also multiclass a 1 or 2 levels into a melee class like fighter, rogue or monk if you want.

This build is made to solo fast and well all through the game, but feel free to modify it to your liking and playstyle. Getting 2 fighter levels might also be a good choice.

Warforged Wizard 18 / Rogue 2 – Best DDO Solo Build

The Warforged Wiz 18 / Rog 2 build is one of the most efficient and fun solo builds for DDO. Combining the toughness and survivability of the Warforged, with the DPS of the Wizard and the utility skills of the Rogue. This build will make it possible to solo a lot of the game that other classes and builds can only dream of. This build is excellent even with a 28pt build but a 32pt build is recommended.

The Warforged races are naturally strong and durable so even though you are a Wizard you will be able to take some damage. And deal some damage Melee in the beginning. Start out by using a high damage two handed weapon, like a Falcion, Great Axe or a Great Sword. Before you get high damage spells this will enable you to plow through the first couple of levels anyway. If you got some gold to spend, invest in a good weapon. You will also be able to self heal because of the Repair line of spells. Repair spells are like heals that only work on Warforged, making the Wizard / Warforged combo extremely durable.

Getting one or two Rogue levels is also vital to soloing efficiently. Being able to disarm traps and having the Rogues utility skills, saves a lot of time, health and makes the soloing experience easier.

The Wizard class is a powerful spellcasting class. You will be able to do high amounts of damage. Both AOE and DD spells make sure you can handle any mob or group of mobs.  In addition you have repair spells and buffs to help you survive tough encounters. Some spells will make a lot of difference when you get them. Like the Wall of Fire spell that you will get at Wizard level 7. This AOE fire damage spell will make almost any instance a walk in the park so after getting it, leveling will be quick.
