Know Your Role - The Priest

Updated Tue, Mar 25, 2008 by Martuk

Know Your Role...

Do you know your role as a Priest? This week Martuk examines the Priest archetype for Age of Conan Hyborian Adventures (AoC) and what their role in a group might be like in part three of his four part "Know Your Role" series. The Priest class in many traditional MMOGs are the back of the row class. They heal from the distance and keep the group going. The AoC Priest will be more hands on, and will have other responsibilities to go with healing. Find out what Martuk thinks this class's role will be.

If the soldier is the figurehead of any good group then the priest is undoubtedly the backbone. The priest is the lifeblood of a group. They keep them healed and standing to carry on the fight until their foes have been vanquished. A good priest can see a group through the most dire of times with skillful healing and excellent use of their skills in a pinch, but a priest that doesn’t know their role will bring a group down faster than anything.

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