Each domain is an advantage that grants an effect and a number of spells which ordinarily are not available for casting with Power Investiture (Cleric). Prerequisites of additional spells may be ignored if they are not available to the Cleric. If a domain advantage can be leveled, only the first level is needed to advance as a Cleric and the advantage may be upgraded at any time.
