In Forsaken World, Priests are represented by two races: Humans and Elves. The debate on which of these two will be better as Priest are still continuing. However, I am fond of Elves. They have that elegance other races generally don’t. Just my biased opinion here.
Holy Strike – Light elemental skill. Does 100% Basic damage with bonus additional damage.
Heal – Heals target, chance to double the healing amount. Healing effect is at max when caster’s mana points is at 75% and above.
Icicle Strike – Water Element skill. Deals 100% basic damage with bonus additional damage and lowers target’s movement. From what I read, this is Priest’s main DPS skill.
Blessing of Life – Buff skill. Increases party’s maximum health point.
Revitalizing Light – Revives target. Can only be used when caster is not engaged in battle.
Blessing of the Winds – Increases target’s movement speed.
Light from the Heavens – According to caster’s maximum health points, heals party members’ health point. Can be used when in silent or stunned status.
Sacred Oath of Secrecy – Water element skill. Deals 100% basic damage with bonus additional damage and chance to drain target’s mana points.
Healing Light – Heals target, target’s health points will gradually be healed over a period of time. Chance to gain double the effect.
Mental Strength – Passive skill. Increases mana point.
Punishment of the Gods – Decreases target’s attack and all elemental resistance.
Heavenly Shield – Target gains a protection buff which will take in some damage received.
Strike of Punishment – Light element skill. Deals 100% basic damage with bonus additional damage and decreases target’s Light resistance.
Priests are not slow levelers, not by far. Just pick a good DPS pet for normal questing. I recommend the wolf (from the 3 available starter ones). It will do the damage for you, since your attacks are low.
* Ramsey is a Hybrid pet with a Selfheal of 25% hp on a 1min cooldown. (ok DEF, ok ATK).
* Wolfie is a DPS pet with a Defence debuff skill (super ATK, low DEF).
* Turtle is a TANK pet with a 5 sec BUBBLE skill on a 3min cooldown. (super DEF, low ATK).
After levels 30-35 (new pets become available), experiment with what else there is.
Potions will be your best friends. Starting from level 30, they are no longer available for purchase at the NPC so your only options are to either make them or buy them.
Let’s assume for a minute you’re not rich and not using real life cash either. Learn Alchemy and Cook. Alchemy potions are quite easy to make. Save MP though. Don’t heal suicidal people. Don’t spam heals either. Monitor their HP and heal when they need it. A lvl 4 heal recovers 1.5k HP. That’s pretty much half the HP of some classes in FW. No worries if their HP is not 100%. Let it drop, but never under half, then you can heal.
Let your pet tank. Heal it when it’s necessary. To prevent stealing aggro, use the auto-hits, that have no MP cost. If it takes too long to kill this way, pick a high damage dealing pet. Such as the wolf. Not to worry, it is a good tank. You can heal and BUFF your pet.
Priests are always needed. You will hardly have trouble finding a party to do something. Just be prepared, have more than 50 potions on you and your pet around. Set it on defense. If a mob or boss attacks you, your pet will automatically target it and start hitting. I have managed to tank lvl 38 elite mobs, with my level 24 normal wolf. It’s not that difficult.
Learn how to lure. Sometimes your targets will be surrounded by aggressive mobs. They are marked with 2 swords above their head. Generally elite mobs, bosses, world bosses, dungeon/instance mobs, some level 36 mobs I’ve seen…and that’s it at the moment.I think.
How do you lure? You set a target and command your pet to attack. After its first hit, tell him to come back to you (white whistle button)/ dismiss it. The target will follow him/run to you and can be killed easily.
