Zeal

Jump to: navigation, search

The conviction of Zeal grants many great powers. Wielding holy verse empowered by the echoes of phoenix song, there are few limits upon a Priest's capabilities. From condemning a heretic to be plagued by visions of their sins to drawing upon their allies for a surge of healing power beyond any other, the vanguard of Creation stands ready to exact retribution upon any that would challenge the sanctity of their charge.

The skill of Zeal is available to members of the Priest class, along with Spirituality and Devotion.
