The Complete Cleric Devout Healing Build – Neverwinter Mod 16 Undermountain

Welcome to our Cleric Devout Healing Guide, updated for the Undermountain, mod 16. In this guide, we will give you tips and info on how to play the Cleric class.

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.

    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.
