Character optimization[]

The power is rated as a good choice (among the plenty of low-quality choices), being able to do a burst of radiant damage, bolster allies defenses, and allowing them to heal. It remained a good power despite the reduction of the burst size.


  • Area burst 5 (from PHB) was changed to Area burst 2 (per Class Compendium).
  • The effect line was also rephrased for clarity.
