D&D, nonsense, who let me play as Cleric?
As a Tempest Cleric in 5e, it is your sworn duty to burn most of your spells on big flashy lightning damage before you get to the boss, then pull out Spiritual Weapon as your last spell slot.
The faster things die, the less you need to worry about your party taking damage. Its common sense.
Don't worry, the Paladin can handle keeping people alive, and you have a cantrip to make sure people don't actually really die.
