Age of Conan Class Interview #8: The Priest of Mitra

Posted Thu, Mar 06, 2008 by Shayalyn

Quick, Somebody Call a Priest!

The truth is revealed about Age of Conan's Priests of Mitra. Often referred to as perhaps the most "powerful" healers, Evan Michaels tells us the facts about the class. We learn a little about their offensive and defensive capabilities, as well as find out how their ability to control crowds affects their other abilities and how it all comes together on the PvP battle field.

While one may be inclined to presume that the Priest of Mitra may be the “good” healer—especially when compared to the Tempest of Set—this assumption wouldn’t be totally correct. At their core, Priests of Mitra are a bit on the vengeful and (perhaps overly) righteous side, using religious zeal as a source of power and strength. While a Priest is often portrayed as being “nice”, Priests of Mitra are often a bit more inclined to smite their enemies with Mitra’s wrath than try to sit down and have a friendly conversation. In the end, good and evil is fairly subjective and the holy vengeance of Mitra could probably be viewed as either one—depending on the beholder, of course.

The high-fantasy setting isn't the only thing that would make Game of Thrones a fantastic story-based MMO.
