From the Basic Rules, p22 & p30: The (class) table shows how many spell slots you have to cast your spells of 1st level and higher. To cast one of these spells, you must expend a slot of the spell’s level or higher. You regain all expended spell slots when you finish a long rest. You prepare the list of (class) spells that are available ...

Yes. From the D&D Basic Rules: Casting the spell doesn't remove it from your list of prepared spells. Basically, 5e Wizards (and Clerics) are 3.5e Sorcerers who can swap out their "known spells" based on their spellbook (or godly mandate). I can't speak to the exact reason behind the design decision, but I assume they wanted to enable a level of ...

Things are different now. The Wizard and Sorcerer of prior editions have now combined into one class, called... the Wizard. Also, the Cleric picked up the same mechanics. (This makes me really interested to find out what the actual Sorcerer class they're releasing will be like, since its defining feature will no longer be unique access to spontaneous ...

From the 3.5 SRD in the class description for the Cleric: Weapon and Armor Proficiency Clerics are proficient with all simple weapons Which means that normally, Clerics are proficient with simple weapons only. But a Cleric who chooses the War domain becomes proficient in the deity's favored weapon. A cleric who chooses the War domain receives ...

It Depends on the Cleric's Deity The cleric's class features include the class feature titled Chaotic, Evil, Good, and Lawful Spells, which says A cleric can’t cast spells of an alignment opposed to his own or his deity’s (if he has one). For example, a good cleric (or a neutral cleric of a good deity) cannot cast evil spells. Spells associated with ...

Yes its called a Laser Cleric Laser Cleric is a build for the 4e Cleric(Templar) class focused on making ranged, radiant attacks and handing out buffs to allies and debuffs to enemies. You choose holy symbol implement powers and can pretty much avoid making any melee attacks at all. Wisdom is your primary stat, charisma gets a boost for some rider effects. ...

You can't boost reflexes too, but it's not an exception. Shields are items that add a shield bonus to AC and a shield bonus to Reflexes. This does not mean that everything that gives a shield bonus to one of the two needs to give a shield bonus to the other: it's coincidental. Battle Cleric's Lore only gives a shield bonus to AC (arguably because it's not ...

In DnD4 the rules are very strict. If it says AC, you only increase AC, even if something implies it otherwise. So you do not get any bonus to Reflex.

"Dragonborn of Bahamut" are part of the Races of the Dragon splat book. The dragonborn children of Bahamut are a unique race in that they are not born; they are reborn. Each one enters the world as a halfling, an elf, a human, or a member of some other humanoid race with all that race's propensities and traits. Bahamut beckons to his would-be ...

Yes, a cleric can UMD items of opposed alignment spells. UMD is always available for activating any item, regardless of your class or class features. This is also why a specialist wizard can use UMD to activate items from banned schools. Doing so is still an aligned action, so doing so too often can change your alignment and put you in disfavor with your ...

Yes, both the Cleric and the Wizard can use a prepared spell multiple times as long as she or he has expendable spell slots for it. Both classes' "Preparing and Casting Spells" section explicitly states that casting a spell does not remove it from your character's list of prepared spells.

Demigod is pretty darn good. It's still (even post errata), considered one of the best Epic Destinies that any character can take. The +2 to two stats, and regen are just that good. However, if you want to go a different route, the other one you've chosen is well rated (though less than Demigod). One you may qualify for being that you've got some MC Ranger ...

Yes, by RAW they can, though your DM may not be so permissive. Personally I would allow it—working under the assumption that casting a sanctified spell is a [Good] act in and of itself, in the same (nonsensical) way that Deathwatch is [Evil].

I house rule that Clerics can use their deity's favored weapon. It isn't like they are getting free weapon focus unless they take the war domain. You have much more power issues from Clerics using Righteous Might, Divine Metamagic, and Miracle then whether or not they are using a Quarterstaff, a Mace, a Longbow, or a Longsword.

Yes. Preparation doesn't mean the same as it does in 3.x; this is a case where knowledge of prior editions is an impediment to understanding D&D Next. Preparation in D&D Next is a separate pool of capability from casting capability, and is not undone by casting the spell. Page 78 of D&D Next Basic Rules (Bolding mine for emphasis): Known ...

Yes. In 4E there are a handful of classes, which include the cleric, for which there are basically two half sets of powers based on two different stats. For the cleric that would be either strength or wisdom. The cleric's strength powers are mostly melee, while the cleric's wisdom powers are nearly exclusively ranged. So to build a good ranged cleric, ...
