The Complete Cleric Devout Healing Build – Neverwinter Mod 19 Avernus

All builds will be updated for Mod 20 Sharandar and the Combat Rework as soon as we have done enough testing.

Welcome to our Cleric Devout Healing Guide, updated for Mod 18: Infernal Descent and Mod 19 Avernus.

To learn more about the new mod, check out our mod 19 Avernus guide.

The Devout Cleric is a typical healing class, that focuses on keeping your allies alive. They also have some strong buffs. It is recommended that you have one loadout for a Cleric Arbiter build as well for when you need to DPS or are soloing.

The purpose of our class guides is not just to show you a build that you can copy and use on your character, but to show you a base build and teach you the mechanics and stats of the game, so you can understand and play your class to its fullest capabilities.

Try different gear, feats, and powers and learn to tailor your own build for your playstyle. See our guide to making your own build for more info.

Friday 6th of September 2019

Don't you want the 5 x Outgoing Heal +10% companions over the 200 power? that's 50% Outgoing healing.. way more than you would get from the power.


Saturday 17th of August 2019

Why the wyvern set? And you forget the bonus from each weapons; you forget utility slot and why put some gear who give damage bonus on a cleric ?
