30 Day D&D Challenge - Day Three - Playing With Gods
I wasn't always partial to Clerics. The fighter type classes and magic-users were my "go to" classes back in my high school and college years. Heck, I even had the stats (thanks to Unearthed Arcana) to roll a fighter that dual classed with illusionist - it made for very believable Phantom Plate armor castings ;)
These days tho, clerics tend to be my go to class if a) I'm playing and not DM'ing and b) I'm not picking a class to fill perceived party gaps.
I like clerics (especially dwarven ones when the rules or the DM allow) as they are damn versatile. I can get my hands dirty in combat, with AC and HP that should help with survivability. A decent attack chart, decent damage weapons, undead blasting and of course spell casting.
