Is it acceptable to leave DOTs at lvl1? Cuz I want to have sanctuary and HH at lvl 5 in my build.
And is it even possible to solo-ing world bosses without TOP gear? I am lvl 43 atm and i can soloing only bosses who are 7-10 lvl below me x_x
Also about Judex in boss skill rotation - it doesn't stun bosses or am i doing something wrong?
Thx in advancve

Yes, it is an acceptable choice.
If by solo-ing bosses you meant, the bosses INSIDE the dungeons at same level, no you can't solo them unless you have pandora gears.
OUTSIDE rare bosses also are NOT do-able unless you are 10 levels higher than them.
For those mini bosses, definately you can solo them. Just follow DOT + spam heal + ray + stun etc..

As for Judex, you can stun only if you use it with ASPERTIO.

Hello there, I just want to ask how exactly the heal bonus of Sacrament works. Is it just added the skills %? Lets say Heal Lvl 5 is 43% a + Sacrament's Lvl 5 +10% bonus, would make Heal do 53%?

Second, the Matk loss affect the DOTs?

I have this huge back and forth since I cant decide from builds 2 and 3. I had come up with them before reading guide, seeing them here reassures me. I need some inputs on Sacrament's effectiveness from others personal experience. xD

No sacrament increases the net heal. Meaning if without sacrament you managed to heal 1000, with it you will heal 1100. So basically 43% heal becomes 47.3%.

Yes, matk loss affects the DOTs as they are directly proportional to matk.

Sacrament is good, but it s not a must. I managed to heal in aod h with no trouble with it being level 1. However having it maxed will give you less trouble in healing.

Thanks! I'm not certain what I'll do but I'm sure I will once I get to that point when I have to make a decision. Just gotta see things for myself and see how I feel then about my damage and healing then.

Nice.. I became rank 2(was rank 1 until last 6 secs then some one ks me)., anyways about tips.. To get to last round you need 2 kills per round. And need 3-4 kills in 4 th round depending on other players. First few rounds just dot on players dueling and ray on one who gets less than 2.5 k hp. Then dot and run away.. Hide in a room and dot on the ppl in the arena and mobs who spawn. Last round, hide as long as you can, and avoid attention. Stay in the room and dot mobs and players fighting.. When last 45 seconds use int boost potion, turn on ur gaurdian use wind elixir and make sure to GR on the rank 1 guy and run like hell.. With guardian+wind elixir and agility increase, no one will be able to KS you. Use assumption , Eat pots If your hp goes down. Reno urself..

Btw, with either one of the builds I put there, you can easily ray anyone other than tanks with 3k hp..

It s overall good build.
I would suggest you take 1 point off Oratio and max Ray.

Awesome thanks for the input!

One more question....how would you suggest the order to assign skill points as one would level? ( as a priest since you laid it out so nicely on levels 1-25 )

Thanks!

This is totally up to you, however there are 2 paths you can choose.

Path 1:
Skip dungeons until you go to half way on to the next map. Then come back and do the dungeons of the previous map. If you prefer this method, allocate skills on attack side.
Reason : Without supportive skills your effectiveness as a healer in that dungeon will be less. So you compensate that by getting more attack skills and leveling up in the next map. With +2 level you can do better job even with still un-developed supportive skills.

Path 2:
Get support skills and do dungeons in each maps before you advance to next map. Dungeons will give you large amounts of EXP and good gears(blue ones), with them your advance in the next map will be faster.

Either way has pros and cons, you can select either one according to your play style.

I just wanted to say that I love your guide. I played a FS Priest in RO and wasn't too sure if I wanted to take the same path in RO2, so I was looking into the battle side of priests, however, I didn't want to completely sacrifice being a useful healer. Your guide seems to be a nice balance between the two that I am going to try =)

Great guide, playing my own hybrid at the moment, though I may be emphasising the heal side a bit more.
Just one thing I'm wondering though, you seem to prioritize Adoramus over Oratio when allocating skill points, but why is that? If you're going to use your DoTs in pve I would think you'd apply them all anyway, so 1% matk extra damage on one skill or the other doesn't really matter. Oratio casts faster, and ME can apply it to a big group if you want it to... So what makes Adoramus worthy of keeping 5 points when Oratio gets points taken away? Is it for pvp when you may not have time to apply all three or is there something I'm missing there?

Yes Oratio comes first before adoramus. If one go more on attack, then it s better to max oratio and allocate remaining on adoramus.

Hi,
I am not sure if anyone asked already but what cards do you recommend?
I am thinking of going with Int - 49, VIT - 31, AGL - 0 built.

p.s. Your guide is awesome x3

Since you are going for vit built, I suggest you get 5 STC for now. With 5 STC compared to poisona will have 245 more hit points. Later u can get armoine set from coa and Ramos set from aod so on.. For now vit builds can get STC.
If you went on 36-36-25, I would have suggested you getting poisona instead of STC.

Oh and thanks XD

Hi, if you could take a look at my build, I would really appreciate it! I was wondering if it still looks okay even after I've messed it up from assuming that I would get a skill reset at level 25.

As for supportive side and utility side it is ok. Attack skills are messed up. You don't need lex to max. It s usefulness is little in intensed battle situations. You could have used those 2 points max Ray or to level up assumptio. Also HL is not advicable as a hybrid priest where you can use those points of other better skills. Other than HL and Lex, it is ok.

VachV... dammmng man... keepin it real on the highest level!

Thank you Sir.

P.S. if im here i might aswell use this stage to ask a little question: Suffragium... man... listen.. this skill man... NO WAY 10% Haste isnt useful.. even if your going for 0 AA / 5 GR .. i mean think about it this way:
have you ever played a game where any the Magic chars didnt need FASTER CASTING?... NO WAY its not cost effective.. no way its not worth it.. no way that the math of it is to low cuz 10% of whatever is a -_-LOAD in this game.. and no way im saying no way again.
imho Blessing can stay lvl 3/4 (maybe even lvl 1 yes... YES I DARE SAY IT!) for this unbelievable skill.
This skill is under valued BIG TIME for both PVP/COLO and for Party Healing... its so good and a MUST HAVE FOR ANYONE THAT NEEDS TO CAST ANYTHING (specially if youre casting away your girlfriend so you can go raid in peaceee!!!)

Phhheewwwwwww.... ._.

Thanks again man,

Yeah, I was going by the wrong assumption that I would receive a skill reset at 25. I am level 16 now and too lazy to start over, so I will probably have to deal with it. How much do skill resets go for in the market?

Thank you for your input.

You can buy a skill reset for 300z-350z if you start shouting in trade chat(/2).
Still if you play 4-5 hrs a day, you can get to lvl 16 in a day.

Hmm, actually ask a level 50 guy to power level you. I can power level a level 1 char to level 10 in 15-20 minutes and level 20 in less than 1.5 hrs. So you are far better asking somone to help you atleast till lvl 10. Therefore If you are level 16, it is TOTALLY worth to start over than going forward and buying a skill-reset later(atleast my advice).

Not to steal VachV's thunder about this, but I have an often used post I like to copy pasta when someone things Suff is a good use of points.

I know I wont be changing your oppinion at all, in most, if not all cases I'd even agree with you (though I'd personally add mana recovery to the top of the list myself) but isn't cast time sort of a moot point when all Priest/Aco healing skills out side of Heal are instant cast? Heal is a 1 second cast, meaning at Suff 5 you reduce it to a barely noticible 0.9 second cast. While yes, those 0.1 seconds add up, but the bottom line is you'd only ever see that marginal throughput increase if you were sitting there and chain healing with nothing but Heal. The only other abilities that have significant cast times are Res and Sac, and I wont bother getting into them for obvious reasons.


This was directed towards FSes, but it applies to hybrid and battle priests as well. DPSing priests only skills with cast times are HL (which with this guide you wont be using), RoG (2s cast), Ado (1s cast) and ME (lol). Literally everything else is instant cast. The 10% you gain from suff is either an unfeelable 0.1s or 0.2s, which are both so negligible and are easily lost to latency. You'll never be chain casting anything with a cast time long enough to reap any sort of productive benefit from Suff.

The deal is unlike RO1, you can't instant cast by add+10% haste and do +90% haste from stats/equipments/cards
