Cipher-Monks (Transcendent) Shattered Pillar/Soul Blade
Shocking lash from Lightning Strikes applies to Mind Blades.
It also applies the shocking lash to Torment's Reach's cone AoE but Biting Whip does not apply to Torment's AoE but does to the initial target.
Shattered Pillars can gain wounds (cause damage) from using Torment's Reach.
The Transcendent feels pretty cool, doing damage gets you wounds and focus, Soul Whip is a big passive damage boost of 40% so you can keep Might at base and add to intellect or dexterity. Just stick to Cipher powers that have a 3 second cast unless you really want it. In fact don't take many Cipher powers at all and just use the Soul Blade raw damage attack when you need to hurt something. Once they give us weapon styles for non-fighters it'll get better with a 20% increase to attack speed from two weapon style. At higher level Monks get a +4 penetration to all weapons.
Any direct damage type class does well mixed with a Cipher:
-Devoted/Soul Blades hit like trucks with great penetration
-SharpShooter/Beguilers give some pizzazz to Rangers and add some nice illusion debuffs. Plus the Biting whip buff to bows.
Haven't tried the others like Paladin/Cipher, Barbarian/Cipher heck a Wizard/Cipher using self buffs and summoned weapons would hit like a truck, maybe go Ogre/Cipher for style?
P.S. Just tried an Ogre/Cipher, they can use Cipher powers while in Ogre form
