Chain is flat-out better for you than Hide, since you don't have anything that shifts your bonuses to AC to Wis or Cha.

Also, Moonbow Dedicate doesn't cause the shortbow to behave as a holy symbol, it simply adds shortbows to your list of valid implements. Healer's Implement only functions with holy symbols.

Missed that on Healer's Implement, thanks. Hide armor is necessary though; Favored Soul flight is only possible in light or no armor.

Well, see, that PP was intended for Avengers, who have unarmored AC boosting things and Dex or Int as a secondary stat. A cleric doesn't have that benefit. I would really suggest taking a different paragon path. 27 AC at level 16 is almost nothing... a level 16 standard monster can hit that on a 6, or 75% of the time. Anything stronger is going to hit that more frequently.

You're probably right, I was really just amused by the idea of a flying Leader; while I know enemies can (and will!) fly or have ranged attacks, I figured the mobility of 8 speed flying would still be pretty useful.

I guess I could try to juggle two suits of Summoned Armor, or even a suit of Imposter's Chainmail (by RAW I'm not sure if I could fly with the armor in it's "normal clothing" form, but I think it's highly probable the DM would allow it); in a fight where flying wouldn't help a damn bit, I have higher AC if I need it.

And in a fight with land-bound enemies, well, who needs AC?

At any rate, thanks for your input, it's more than I got at WotC.
