comment Is there a feat to use Dex or Con instead of Str in melee (4e)?
no. But then again, unarmed strike could totally be a headbutt...

@Ryno is he wielding a two handed weapon? You only need a single free hand for monk unarmed strike

@KeepSmilin make sure you're nice when you talk to your DM about this. The rules aren't a bludgeon.

probably the most helpful thing you could do is let us see your whole build, that way we've got all of the information.

@JoshuaAslanSmith there are a couple of classes where it can be the optimal choice, Bladesinger and Slayer would be two.

comment confusion/question for attack power description in character builder
@Brett and I'm guessing y'all are Level 2 right? unless he's human and has an expertise feat as well? But yeah, what Jas said, the builder does the math for you and it's almost always right.

Does your Cav wield a magic weapon of some kind? that would account for the to-hit and damage.

comment How do I build a devoted cleric with the WotC builder?
@detly yes, anything you get for free on your class/build will not be listed anywhere but on the sheet. (that's not quite true, but effectively so, it's in the class listing when you select your class, but that's highly obscure and it's often not clear what you've picked)

I believe devoted is a build of templar, but I'm not 100% sure.

comment What kinds of enchantments can be put onto orbs?
Searching the compendium is free and they provide the book location, though the text is paid. I wish you well trying to play 4e without DDI, I wouldn't even try.

comment What kinds of enchantments can be put onto orbs?
@JohnW generally items are not used in 4e to improve your stats, implements of a given enchantment will increase your attack and damage by the plus they have. Do you have access to any source material so you could look at some examples of what exists already?

comment Any suggestions for feats/options to forgo damage dice for other benefits?
@Tzrlk there might be some other options to reduce damage outright, but these are the ones that deal with the phrase "Damage die" and involve reducing it.

comment Any suggestions for feats/options to forgo damage dice for other benefits?
@Tzrlk to be honest, I'd go Shaman or Warlord and take a mix of damaging, non-damaging and attack granting powers. they are both a ton of fun to play. That said, you could make a mean penalty dishing rogue if you wanted to :)

@Tzrlk I've added a list of the feat options available

I'll be honest here, there is a good chance that you are playing the wrong game if you want to play a character like this.

There are no rules here, there are some very good guidelines in the question I've linked above.

Could you summarize some of the information to the link and how it's relevant?

comment Odd class combination - mitigate losses?
@Ryno What Josh said is exactly what I'm saying. build to the mechanics you want, make the flavor fit your narrative requirements later. This is both a RAW approach (it's right in the PHB) and also nicely dovetail the desires of some folks to build optimized characters and fulfill narrative requirements. It makes it a both, and choice rather than an either/or one.
