Many Priests worked near the Kingdom's capital and therefore were the Cleric class that took the most loss because of Medzio Diena. The oldest of the Priests who have survived Medzio Diena is known to be only around thirty years of age.

Priests are clerics who give blessings and resurrect the dead with their holy powers.

Background

Tree of Savior Priests are based on catholic priests, they are men that act as bridge between it and mankind sharing its words and grace.[1] performing duties such as preaching, baptism, take devotes confessions, offer devotes guidance, aid the poor and ill, commend weddings and funerals. [2]

Any men with a bachelor degree that wishes to serve the church is sponsored by a catholic diocese or community is eligible to join the seminary in order to become a Priest.[3] According to old traditions only men can ingress priesthood, those known as nuns are women that dedicate their lives to the christian faith but have no training in priesthood nor are allowed to perform most of Priest's function.[4] Seminary works as an university and offers formation in human, spiritual, intelectual and pastoral knowledge including the formal academics in philosophy and theology fields of study. [5]

It's believed that priesthood started between 1th and 2nd century[6][7] as a bishop delegate to fulfill some of their tasks in their absence, tho with as christianism spread through Europe and parish churches were build across the land the role was expanded gaining more functions and powers that were limited to bishops. Due that Priests are allocated as the lowest hierarchy rank in the catholic order, being only above deacon as a transitional state.[8]

Trivia

  • The word Priest is a generic term used to describe any clergyman in a given religion that is authorized to perform sacred rites and mediate between mankind and gods.[9]
  • Usually classes based on well defined groups that have proper background information that use the native names both for class and skills tho this may not be the case with Priest as christianism is a worldwide religion and all concepts associated with it can be found in several languages.
  • Priest is one of the few classes which the historical group it is based on still can be found in the current day and age, in fact it is also one of the rare cases which people can apply for regardless of, with exception of women, culture and country.
  • Despite being based on a male exclusive group there was never any gender restriction regarding the class advancement, the first and only time this was done was with Miko's release which was abolished with Re:Build update.
  • Back in the rank system Priest was the only class with a dedicated hidden class that expanded their skill set, this was no other than Chaplain.
  • Up to Re:Build Priest was one of the worst classes to play as, however this wasn't due being ineffective nor due costs or difficulty but rather the fact that three of the main Priest buffs were available to purchase through Pardoner's Spell Shop and the skill distribution not allowing players to ignore those skills. Any player that had a Pardoner variant of the buff would receive the effect with less efficiency but for longer duration and as the game understood the effects as the same it prevented Priest's to be applied in order to maintain the service.
  • The class icon is composed of a cross followed by two pairs of wings on top and bottom, it's likely that this combination has the most iconic symbol to christianism accompanied by what could represent the divine in form of angels.
  • Priest is the only class that has multiple catalysts but doesn't use them in more than a single skill, tho all of them are used on other classes those being Chaplain, Krivis, Paladin and Pardoner.
