They are good thoughts. I'll definitely add a note that heal will break duel's chain. That said, they are how you choose to play the duelist build. They may be the most efficient. I'm not sure. But ...Just my thoughts on the Paladin. You may not agree and that's fine.
I've tried very hard to leave builds with a small handful of critical skills, with room for people to adapt beyond that to what they enjoy. I'm considering editing a few to pull out a few critical skills (in my mind) because they are not technically necessary for the build to work. The min-maxer in me has a hard time not laying out a step-by-step plan for each of these to create a 'perfect' build for people to copy. Creating a thorough guide for these builds is beyond the scope of my desire, so that people have room to personalize each one. There are some comprehensive guides on the forum already .These builds are meant to serve as a basic template, to be modified and tailored to your style.
I greatly appreciate your input and feedback regardless. I have little experience with cleric, and your thoughts and suggestions have been very helpful.
