Divine Power: A guide to domain feats

Although I don't have a copy of Divine Power on my hands yet, I've been able to browse the many goodies in the book through DDI compendium and character builder. Unfortunately, one of the topics I was looking forward to the most has turned out to be rather difficult to use that way. I'm talking about the divine domain feats, which add special properties to a series of at-will powers. With more than 30 feats, each affecting 4 at-wills of different classes, and requiring you to worship specific gods, it becomes really cumbersome to work out how to match gods and at-will powers for a character. In this post, I try to address that.

Below, there are two tables that should make the process of building divine characters a bit easier. The first table shows all divine at-wills and their associated domains, and the second one lists the gods corresponding to each domain. Both make extensive use of my Compendium tooltips, so a subscription to DDI is highly recommended.
