Description

Clerics in Dark and Darker are devoted followers of a deity, who use their faith and divine magic to aid their allies and smite their enemies. They can heal wounds, and cleanse curses. They can also channel their deity's power to deal radiant damage to undead and other evil creatures. They can wear heavy armour and wield powerful weapons, but their true strength lies in their ability to call upon their deity's power to turn the tides of battle

- Communication is important! Communicate with your team when they should back up to be healed, if they should stand still, and so on.

- Be careful when using buffs and heals since you can also target monsters, corpses and enemy players.

- Pre-buff your team before a PvP encounter.

- Be sure you have campfires when entering a dungeon to enable you to replenish your spell casts when needed.

- You can increase your spell casting efficiency during PvP fights by pre-charging and holding the cast while waiting for the right opportunity to cast a heal for example.
