Strength has been buffed by +1 so this is good if you want to engage in melee combat. It works perfectly with conventional weapons that you will be using anyway so you cannot go wrong with this.


Intelligence is buffed by +2 that will assist you in case you decide to be the support player for your team.

The constitution ability can be buffed up by +1 and will provide cleric with an extra health point and well extra health points are always helpful

Abilities and Talent

Hydrosophist Ability
This healing skill works well for supports.

Necromancer Ability
Life steal can be incredibly useful especially if you decide to go the melee attacker route.

Bartering Ability
Every point in this ability decreases the price of items by +10% and increases their sale price. This character is perfect for trading due to this ability.

Hothead Talent
You have a greater chance to deal critical damage to enemies if you have a maximum number of HP.

Starting Abilities

Restoration allows you to heal your teammates and cancel all effects on them.

Blood Sucker
Blood Sucker allows you to heal with blood puddles, and since you are a melee fighter this will work extremely well for you. Try to utilize its short cooldown multiple times during fights.

Decaying Touch
Decaying Touch turns the healing spells of the enemy into debuffs which deal damage. Do I really need to stress how useful this can be?

Best Race for Clerics

Elf is perhaps the only class completely incompatible with the Cleric. The Human can somewhat work due to passive bonus to Leadership and the high initiative.

Human is a better for cleric class than Elf with a moderate disposition but both dwarf and lizard are better. This disposition is due to high value of initiative and leadership bonus. Now as mentioned, this is a moderate choice but all of the further experience depends upon the development of the character.

Dwarf works extremely well for the Cleric and has a high predisposition towards it. This is because of its natural Strength level that makes the Dwarf race perfect if you are planning to take your character the melee fighter route.

Lizard also has a high predisposition towards the Cleric. This is better if you are planning to go the support route with the class as its Intelligence will be beneficial with this race.
