Cleric primary archetype combined with Cleric secondary is a High Priest class.[1]


Restoration. Enhancement. Debilitation. Clerics keep their team in the fight by bolstering their combat abilities and cursing their enemies. Far from simply supporting their allies through healing, a Cleric is also capable of wielding destructive force in the face of danger.[2]

Clerics have control over life and this may relate to utility abilities that relate to corruption.[3]

Cleric augments

Classes with Cleric as a secondary archetype are able to choose between life or death augments.[26][27]

  • Choosing life augments will provide self-healing benefits as well as limited life-giving benefits to other players.[28][26]
  • Some cleric augments applied to certain skills will indirectly provide the ability to heal others. These will not replace the need for a cleric archetype.[29]
  • Cleric augments will radically change the type of summons available from the summoner primary archetype.[30]
    • Skeletons, zombies and other undead summons will be possible with death based augments.[30][31]

Any class that's going to choose Cleric as a secondary class will have the ability to pick from those augments to influence their skills to affect the life of others around you.[26]Steven Sharif
