Domain powers are always available for use The cleric needn't do anything special while preparing spells to have access to his domain powers, and, unless the domain power says otherwise, it is always available for use. The cleric class description includes this information in the section Deities, Domains, and Domain Spells: The cleric gets the granted ...

Based on your comment above and only because you included it in the list of options in your Q, I would recommend not panicking/changing anything and discussing with your party. Lower level druids are rough, but mid-high level druids are awesome and versatile enough to do a lot. They can become a tank easily (if they so choose). Similarly an animal companion ...

So this is basically an answer in two parts: some general observations about clerics, melee, and so on, which seem relevant to you, and then specific suggestions for your character. I’ve tried to keep the first section brief; feel free General Observations Just some things I want to establish first. Touch attacks are usually really easy Granted, a ...

Your DM is wrong SRD > Magic Overview > Spell Descriptions > School: Beneath the spell name is a line giving the school of magic (and the subschool, if appropriate) that the spell belongs to. Almost every spell belongs to one of eight schools of magic. A school of magic is a group of related spells that work in similar ways. A small number of ...

Your DM is confusing specialist wizards variants with the basic concept of spell schools. Spells would have schools even if wizards variants didn't exist. Almost all spells have a school, including spells that happen to be exclusively divine. Yes, a cleric can take Spell Focus.

Yes, a cleric can take the feat Spell Focus As a feat wholly lacking in prerequisites, nearly any creature can take the feat Spell Focus, even those that can't cast spells at all. (Maybe such a creature needs the feat to qualify for a prestige class or another feat--like the feat Augment Summoning--or is planning to take levels in a class that casts spells ...

Weapon finesse is a good compliment to touch spells. Focus not on weapon attacks, but on save-or-suck and save-or-die spells. On the other hand, further investment in this direction is contraindicated unless you have a specific 20 level build you're going for. Your second acknowledgement of being a ranged character is, unfortunately, accurate. Focus more on ...

You can definitely make it look like a dragon's head. From the description of Spiritual Weapon: The weapon can take whatever form you choose. Clerics of deities who are associated with a particular weapon (as St. Cuthbert is known for his mace and Thor for his hammer) make this spell’s effect resemble that weapon. Bahamut isn't "associated with ...

Yes you can... Spell Selection and Preparation A divine spellcaster selects and prepares spells ahead of time through prayer and meditation at a particular time of day. The time required to prepare spells is the same as it is for a wizard (1 hour), as is the requirement for a relatively peaceful environment. A divine spellcaster does not have to ...

Yes. From the 3.5 d20srd: Divine spellcasters prepare their spells in largely the same manner as wizards do, but with a few differences. […] Spell Selection and Preparation A divine spellcaster selects and prepares spells ahead of time through prayer and meditation at a particular time of day. The time required to prepare spells is the same as ...

The holy symbol can be any symbol representing your deity. The symbols listed in the Appendix are just the most commonly used ones. From the PHB, page 151: Holy Symbol. A holy symbol is a representation of a god or pantheon. It might an amulet depicting a symbol representing a deity, the same symbol carefully engraved or inlaid as an emblem on a shield, ...

There is no prohibition to my knowledge. I believe the citation you're thinking of is: Chaotic, Evil, Good, and Lawful Spells A cleric can’t cast spells of an alignment opposed to his own or his deity’s (if he has one). Spells associated with particular alignments are indicated by the chaos, evil, good, and law descriptors in their spell descriptions. ...

You can prepare any of the inflict wounds spells as a Good Aligned Cleric, because they do not have the Evil descriptor. What you can't do is spontaneously cast your prepared spells as inflict wounds spells in the same way that you can do that for cure wounds spells. It doesn't have anything to do with the Necromancy school of magic. The Necromancy school is ...
