The Healer


[Save the Dying]

At the beginning of time, when the world was barely populated, there existed a group of mortals that often walked beside the immortals themselves, hearing of their wishes and plans for the world. Time passed by, and the immortals began to conceal themselves in the heavens more and more often, to escape the distraction of mortal attention. The group continued to talk to immortals, but no longer would they meet. Only through the channels of prayer would they communicate. The clerics, as they came to be called, had a greater bond with the heavens than any other guildhall, their very powers themselves being derived from immortal favor. The cleric guildhall became one which fought with its faith, by praying for the divine to answer their allowed prayers.

As the Great War began in Serin, the faith of the clerics was tested more than any other time, as their blood was spilled in the name of the side they had chosen. The immortals allowed their prayers to continue, but Stryth objected to the heavens being used to derive the means for a guild devoted to worship to be fighting each other. Thus the cleric guild was fractured, and formed into two new guilds, with their allowed prayers more suited to their standing - the defenders of Light became the new guild of healers.

Often pacifistic, healers renounce wealth to devote their whole life to their profession. They are the mouth of their gods, the preachers of their faith. For their devotion, they receive incredible healing and protective abilities, that may benefit themselves and those around them. A healer must both understand and zealously believe in their chosen path. Healers may gain experience through healing and curing others of their ailments, due to their specialization in this field. In addition to healers ability to restore life, they may also learn talents to help them banish the lifeless undead.

Tips

  • Use fly scrolls and protective shield to prevent your healer being pinned down with bash and trip, unable to cast his spells.
  • Savebreak equipment can help lower the spell resistances of opponents.
  • Weapon ward protects from many skills and combat style/weapon style inferiority.
  • Dispel magic removes the positive spells from your enemy, forcing him to use more mana/potions.
  • Use the ability to cure to out-regen even the hardest hitting of enemies.
  • Focus on improving DAMROLL and SAVE VS MENTAL. His damage comes mostly from weapons, and he needs sanctuary up to complete his defences.
