So I'm still pretty new to 4e and I had a concept for a primarily "spellcaster" Human Cleric that uses a bow instead of a regular melee weapon. (A close comparison is Kikyo/Kagomae from Inuyasha.) Basically what I'm looking for is either a way to utilize a ranged instead of a melee weapon to execute powers such as "Righteous Brand" or "Healing Strike" that have a melee keyword. If that's impossible, then I'd like to look for a way to either (bless/enchant/use a ritual) to put the spell on my arrows OR find poisons/enchantments with similar effects. Either solution solves my problem.
My cleric also carries a dagger and isn't that squishy, but I'd still prefer her to stay out of the main fight if possible. I have access to most of the books but I would need help finding enchanted arrows, rituals, or poisons.
P.S. And forgive me but no, I wouldn't want to play another class because that would require learning a new class in the middle of our campaign.
