In both take serenity to tie your turning and such to wisdom.

A couple of general outside-the-box divine badassery builds:

A) The Revealing Light of God
 Cleric/Cloistered Cleric 1 / Crusader 4 / Divine Oracle 2 / Sunmaster 5

Suggested or required feats: Servant of the Fallen, Skill Focus [religion], Spontaneous Domains
Suggested item: scepter (Lost Empires of Faerun p153) of Divine Power and Righteous Might
CL = 8, BAB = 8 (12 w/Divine Power)

Pros: several feats open for desired focus, whether DMM or devotions or divine feats, many choices for spontaneous domains - 4 domains available (5 including Planning at Sunmaster 7), martial goodies

Cons: CL hits (a no-no, I know, but OP suggested that spellcasting not a main priority for build)

B) The Flaming Fist of God
 Cleric 4 / Monk 2 / Sacred Fist 6 (or 4, headed to Sunmaster)

Required feats: Combat Casting, Improved Unarmed Strike, Combat Reflexes, Stunning Fist

Pros: good flavor blend; great Wis synergy; only loses 1 CL (maybe 2, depending on DM's interpretation of the Fist); the whole flame/sun theme

Cons: feat intensive (but monk 2 nets 3 of 4 required feats), still room for customization

Please be gentle - first offerings to the CO gods  :)

The obvious basic choice here would be Cloistered Cleric with Time and Planning domains, and then go for DMM:Persistant Lesser Mass Vigor or Vigorous Circle to handle the healing (without having to do anything else).  Then persist Divine Power, Righteous Wrath of the Faithful, and Righteous Might (using a Rod of Extend Spell makes this very easy, just persist then extend for 48 hour durations.  Use Knowledge Devotion to boost damage. 

If you wanted, a two level dip into PrC Paladin along with the Holy Mount feat would essentially give you all Paladin class features for the loss of only one casting level... and you even have a better mount than a normal Paladin.

Of course at that point you might as well go PrcP3 for divine grace

Divine Health, Aura of Courage, as well as full bab and d10 hit dice and you don't lose a caster level.

In both take serenity to tie your turning and such to wisdom.

That sounds pretty useful, which book is serenity in?

thank you all for your help, people.

I change my mind after reading the cleric handbook. I don't want to loose a lot of NLS, and I want to hit quickly the 9th level of spells.
I have two builds I would like you to comment.

Cloister cleric 5/ Ordained Champion 3/ Divine Oracle 2/ Radiant servant of Pelor Amaunator 2... at the end it will give Cloister Clerc 5/ Ordained ch 3/ Divine Or 2/ radiant Serv 10

or

Cloister cleric 5/ Ordained Champion 3/ Radiant servant of Pelor Amaunator 4... then it will be Cloister clerc 5/ Ordained Champ 5/ Radiant Serv 10

So here is what I prospect to do with the first build.

For: 14  Dex: 10  CON: 14  INT: 10  SAG: 16 (19 with +3) CHA: 14

Domain Switch: Planning and Time (War and Knowledge with Ordained Champ and Divine Oracle)

Feats:

- Extend spell (Domain planning)
- Die Hard (Ordained Champion)
- Improved Initiative ( Domain Time)

H - Weapon focus: mace (preq for Ordained champ)
1 - Extra turning (preq for Radiant servant)
3 - persistant spell
6 - Skill focus Knowledge (preq for Divine Oracle)// (Power attack or Extra turning for the second build)
9 - DMM (persistant) (preq for Barbarian's butt kicking)
12 - Holy warrior reserve.

and for the futur

15- ?
18- ?

What do you think?
Ordained champ can sacrifice 1 or 2 domains for feats. Is it a good idea to do it?

Thanks again in advance.
