High Priest is the Transcendent variant of Priest. The High Priest is the epitome of spiritual calm. A bulwark in the storm of chaos, he is more than capable of protecting his comrades when faced with even the most ferocious enemy. Despite the many skills taught to them by the Priests of Prontera Church, they still need to learn a few more from the Gods themselves. Now able to create areas where no violence may occur, they are able to Heal more, Bless more and Serve even more. Their skills are truly gifts from God. High Priests get further improved tanking ability thanks to Assumptio. The additional statpoints from being a Transcendent, coupled with Meditatio, makes them able to spread their stats out further, which in turn makes new builds like the DEX/VIT/INT WoE possible.

INT/DEX PvM Magnus Exorcismus

  • STR: 1
  • AGI: 1
  • VIT: 1-40 (base)
  • INT: 105-125 (total)
  • DEX: 110-130 (total)
  • LUK: 1

The INT/DEX High Priest build is the staple Magnus Exorcismus build. They can solo well in certain places with a lot of Demon or Undead thanks to Assumptio boosting their fragile build. Also thanks to the added statpoints, they can optionally get by with less INT or DEX for some added VIT. They are also able to dish out good amounts of damage using Holy Light when buffed with the Priest Spirit. They double well as WoE Sanctuary and Safety Wall slaves but their low VIT makes them vulnerable to Stun.

INT/VIT PvM Support

  • STR: 1
  • AGI: 1
  • VIT: 100
  • INT: 120-126
  • DEX: 1-40+ (Non-WoE builds do not need Dex as much as WoE builds)
  • LUK: 1

The INT/VIT support High Priest build is the staple Full Support Priest build with a kick. The very high INT coupled with a high level Meditatio grants them 2700+ heals and nearly unlimited SP, while maxing their VIT makes them great tanks in most PvM scenarios like mobbing or MVPing thanks to Assumptio.

Due to their low DEX they tend to stay away from Sanctuary, unless they plan on getting Safety Wall later on.

DEX/VIT/INT Hybrid Support

  • STR: 1-20
  • AGI: 1
  • VIT: 80-100
  • INT: 78-84+ (base)
  • DEX: 80-100
  • LUK: 1

This build tries to combine the best of both worlds: they get fairly high VIT like a support build, but also decent DEX. While they'll have slower cast times than a ME High Priest, they will be more durable and status resistant because of their added VIT. The build heavily relies on the added benefits of Meditatio due to their lack of INT, although they still have much better SP Regen and Heal-Power than regular Priests.

They tend to get skills that can be useful during WoE, like Safety Wall and Sanctuary. Angelus is usually dropped for even higher levels of Safety Wall while others put those points into higher levels of Kyrie Eleison (Lv. 8). They also generally have lower levels of Gloria (Lv. 1-2) and Magnificat (Lv. 3).

DEX/VIT/STR WoE Full Support

  • STR: 20-40
  • AGI: 1
  • VIT: 100
  • INT: 50-70
  • DEX: 100-120
  • LUK: 1

This build is a Full Support WoE High Priest build. While similar to the aforementioned build in concept, there are a few key differences that makes the priest more useful during WoE. They need high VIT not only to survive longer, but also for Status Immunity and to increase the efficiency of potions. Priests are not expected to Heal during Woe, so high INT is unnecessary for this build. This makes it difficult for the High Priest to level solo, but capable priests can still support parties. High DEX and moderate STR are key staples of this build; the DEX is for fast casting, while the STR is to carry consumables during WoE.

Because Heal is not considered important during WoE, Meditatio is mostly dropped in favor of Safety Wall, Sanctuary, and Kyrie Eleison. Some High Priests only have Resurrection Level 1, using their high DEX to make up for the slow cast time. Other builds include B.S Sacramenti and Suffragium.

AGI-based Battle High Priest

  • STR: 70-100+
  • AGI: 80-100+
  • VIT: 20-50+
  • INT: 1-20
  • DEX: 40-75+
  • LUK: 1-30+

This build is the staple of the old battle priests before the 2nd jobs. This build is very rare in WoE/PvP scenarios since they don't have skills to amplify attack, but are flexible characters in PvM scenarios due to their ability to both support and fight at the same time. Support-wise, battle builds usually have the same skills as support builds, although the lower SP pool and cast time reduces the efficiency. Signum Crucis is optional. Due to their nature of using Aspersio and Demon Bane, battle builds are commonly oriented towards fighting Demon race monsters. Mace Mastery is an optional bonus.

Status builds may vary greatly depending on the preferred playing style. The only common similarity is high AGI. STR is needed for attack strength, as there are no offensive melee skills. DEX is required for Hit and cast time. Some builds are Crit oriented, leveraging specialized weapons and cards, as well as Gloria. The amount of VIT and INT taken depends on hunting locations and intended playing style.
