Priest

This page is about the class. For the defunct House, please see Empyreal Assembly.

The Priest class uses the skills of Spirituality, Devotion, and Healing, staying true to the path of Good. Originating on the isle of Delos with their Templar brethren and later flourishing in Shallam, the priests of the modern day largely hail from Targossas. Though not all Priests swear service to the Dawnspear, all hold true to the cause of good, for to stray from this path is to diminish as a Priest.

In battle, a Priest wields a spiritual mace they summon to inflict damage, break limbs, and more. However, the real heart of the priesthood is the close relationship with their guardian angels. Through this perpetual companion, said to reflect the light of their charge's soul, practitioners of Spirituality gain greater power. Their angel can burn their enemies, trace their movements, or even tear out their very souls. And if this wasn't enough to instil respect for the class, the Priest has access to the rites of Devotion, derived from the holy rituals of the ancient Church, allowing resurrection of the blessed, parting of waters, or filling of someone's mind with visions of Hell. Finally, a Priest is able to summon the powers of the five elements to heal and grant blessings to themselves and their allies.
