This is my first attempt at a character, I used point buy 22 as suggested in the PHB. If you use this method it works differently than in 3e. Based on what I've read so far I'm leaning heavily towards playing a Cleric with a progression of Battle Cleric for the Paragon Path.
Let me know what you think.
