So, naturally, when my cleric died, and was offered new life by Corellon, I brought him back as a seer-themed Shaman/Cleric.
Hold up! I have 4 main reasons for this.
2) My DM gave me +1 wisdom for living twice. I'm not complaining, but that also leans me away from Warlord.
3) Playing a Watcher Shaman sounded fun. Plus it jived well with a seer-flavoured character, which sounded fun.
4) Monsters pretty much auto-hit everyone in my party, for a variety of DM- and party-related reasons, so I needed a little extra healing (hence /cleric).
Anyways, here is the new seer-themed build I've come up with. I think he's fairly well-balanced (huge initiative, healing, enabling, buffing, saving throws all accounted for, as well as some nice monster-sliding--does that fall under debuffing?).

====== End ======
I don't need perfect optimisation, and the basics (watcher shaman/cleric) are set in stone. Mostly I am looking for advice on feats (I can't find much of use), as well as paragon paths (thus far I've found Keen Eagle, which is not perfect for a hybrid.) I am open to multi-classing or whatever other kooky ideas which don't require too much item investment. And if you see anything just begging to be improved, let me know. Thanks!
