First of my thanks to GelatinousOctahedron for his work on the previous guide. Now that I am starting with my own I am starting to realize just how much more work it is to make something like this then one would expect.

This guide is by no means finished yet and it's a work in progress so if you see something that could better or just spot a simple typo I really do apreciate the feedback to make this guide as good as it can be.

The true god of D&D
Alternative theory

Whether you have a deity picked out for your character for RP reasons and want to know what your god has to offer, or you have a character concept and you want to pick whatever deity works best to optimize it, or maybe something in between, then this guide should help make sorting though the hundreds of options that especially clerics, avengers, paladins, and invokers face a bit easier.

If you already have a deity picked out and want to know what matches it in the guide, you can use the "find" function of your browser to search out the deity name after opening up the spoiler blocks.

Contents:

    b. Domainfeats

    b. Epic Destinies

  • Warpriest
 
Considerations:

A few considerations I ran into while making this guide
[sblock]
Charopboard:
This is the charop board and this guide is made with that in mind. It looks at the gods and looks at what they add mechanicly to your character. Ofcourse there is also another element you have to keep in mind and that is your character roleplayingwise. In the PHB you will only find one real reference to the gods and their stories and that is in Making Characters - Roleplaying for a reason. Who and what your character worships should have a big influence on what kind of person your character is. This will also mean that your DM might look at your god with more then just the mechanical side. He might even look at your worshipping a particular god as a possible hook to bring you into the story.
If you think your DM might be picky about your backstory or if you would love for your god to be weaven into the story for that matter I would really suggest running it past your DM. Especially if you take a PP like morninglord and are planning a radiant mafia tactic becuase of it. 
 
Setting:
You will find that in most lists the gods are divided on setting. I think most people here will know what that is, but I'll just quickly go over it for the new people.
The gods you find in the PHB are the gods of the world of Greyhawk. It is the oldest world of D&D, but not the only world. You have several other worlds found for example in the Forgotten Realms, Dark Sun or Ebberon settings to name a few popular ones. Each one has it's own setup on how the world works and often that means different gods (or no gods at all). Your DM might even get really creative and make his own world and his own gods.
This means that it is important to know what setting, what world, you are playing in when chosing a god.
 
Multible gods:
To quote the playershandbook "Most people revere more the one diety, praying to different gods at different times." It is an option, but it is an option with a few problems mechanicly speaking. Exept perhaps for the invoker the mechanics are really not build with the worship of more then one god in mind. The characterbuilder is a great example of this, but also your charactersheet really only has space for one god.
Should we then say that mechanicly it's not possible eventhough roleplayingwise it is? Well for the most part yes though there are mechanical elements, like the paragonpath Seldarine Dedicate, that do show that worship of multible gods should be possible even for divine classes.
If you do chose for multible gods make sure to mention it to your DM beforehand and make sure he agrees that your combo works and be prepared to "houserule" in features from your other god(s) when using the characterbuilder.

Here is a quick summary of the different domains of the warpriest in rough order of general effectiveness with thanks to GelatinousOctahedron from who I shamelessly borrowed it from ;)

[sblock]
Oghma: It starts out well and I think its the most effective overall of the warpriests, especially once you get to mid paragon.  You focus on dazing and psychic powers so you can debuff very well. You need to go devout warpriest, end of discussion. It makes one of your at wills immobilize and your healing word grants basic attacks for free at level 16. Obvious optimization route is to mc fighter for dizzying mace and maxing the number of healing words you get through gamblers word/unforgettable cudgel and supreme healer. And throw in psychic lock at some point. Also is best at knowledge skills of all cleric builds.

Domination: A focus on pushing, proning and intimidation. It has a lot of psychic and fear powers to exploit and if I wanted to do an off striker warpriest this would be my first choice.  Very good at wills with both a proning attack that can be used on a charge and a push attack that targets will, pushes, and lets an ally shift. Fairly good encounter powers overall and a good devout warpriest features and powers. It also is good at ally shifts and generates some temp hitpoints.

Storm[/b]: Starting out it is the most ally damage focused build and has good ally movement enabling.  Focus on thunder and lightning powers.  Simple and effective.  I would strongly consider mark of storm and flail expertise with a tripple headed flail or else get a spear for polearm momentum. One of the few warpriest builds I would consider using a two handed weapon since I think the spear and polearm feats could be worth it with a greatspear.

Torm[/b]These do a little bit of everything. They have decent defensive at wills and healing word can teleport and shift allies and potentially grant saves. Their encounter powers do everything from grant temp hit points, blind, prone, let allies spend surges, let you shift, and at level 27 grants every one in the party a free action charge or BA. Probably the hardest warpriest to get bored with over time and they have probably the best leader encounter power in the game with valorous charge. I would probably only take devout warpriest if you don't take mark of healing.

Earth: You can get a lot of damage resistance with this domain, especially if you go with the devout warpriest path, and it has a good bit of pushing and proning along with some AC boosting. And you tend to target fortitude with weapon powers so you will normally be fairly accurate.  You get to slide with healing word starting at 5 which is useful and your enemies will be granting CA when you hit them with encounter powers starting at 10. Its a bit boring, but consistent.

Selune: Has a lot of defense boosting options and your attacks tend to do cold and radiant damage, which is a good combination. Decent damage resistance and temp hitpoint generation. About the only cleric build where you should do both cold and radiant optimization, although you will be doing less cold damage later on. Devout warpriest gives you at will save granting so that is a good option if mark of healing is not available.

Sun:  The best healing/save granting warpriest build and the easiest to play as well. Its powers do radiant damage and you should have more than enough save granting that you might not want mark of healing. Its encounter powers get to be a bit repetetive and I would switch out one through reserve maneuver or a power swap. I would go with a radiant themed paragon path like morninglord or radiant servant instead of devout warpriest.  Obvious optimization route is to focus on radiant damage boosts and buffs that trigger off dealing radiant damage.

Death: It is focused on automatic damage and uses an implement. It has good at wills, but several of its encounter powers are pretty bad even though they autohit and should be power swapped out for invoker, avenger, or similar powers as soon as possible and you should look at reserve maneuver in paragon too. If you swap out those powers it has some pretty good class features and devout warpriest features if you like autodamage and damage boosts and can be built into a solid front line psychic lock controller build.

Corellon: It is focused on having radiant and force powers you can use either ranged or melee so a thrown weapon like a net or trident is a good option. It also has some good movement for both you and your allies and by default is probably the most mobile leader build out there. I don't like several of the encounter powers and its at wills aren't that good and devout warpriest is only an ok path for it. The obvious optimization routes are focusing on radiant or cold damage and boosting the free teleports you get at level 10 or making int your secondary stat and mcing artificer.[/sblock]
