Hi, all I've been leeching an acolyte with my mage and at geos and noticed tons of battle priests.

 

So my question is are they good for high lvl or is it better to go the monk route as i just want a basic lvling build no woe/mvp stuff.

Late game is AoE / Mobbing.

Battle Priests are single target only and can hardly support in parties, hence leveling will be a pain.

 

It'll be easier to find parties when you are an FS Priest, especially lategame.

Early game is easier as battle priest, mid-late FS is easier.

Battle priests are great as a first class for starting on a new server. Especially if you can't afford to donate for KP points. Theyre more a starting character that can level on any map in game and explore easily.

If you can donate a ton for kp then you can skip to a more expensive character like a BB Knight or your dream class.

But as far as efficiency in making zeny Battle priest is the way to go. They require no potions, flywings, bwings. Can warp themselves around, self buff so no multiclienting needed. Asperio for undead/demons.

Easy to gear. Pantie/undershirt combo,Stunner, kobold or yoyo clips,Snake hat, your set.

The drawbacks. No AoE attack, you will be ctrl+clicking single targets forever. And constantly re-buffing yourself with KE/Gloria. No WoE/Pvp. No MvP. 

Its also complicated to get a good stat build. You'll want high agi, medium str/vit/luk/dex, touch of int with leftover points. Dont go over base 91 as stat points get costly. You can use no shield and gain extra aspd on easier monsters. Pray for auto cast equip to be introduced to server, like cd in mouth, or vanberk cards.

Neither, as Battle Priest you'd get an NPC Stunner, done.

As exorcist you get a wand, done.

 

Both will keep themselves healed/buffed 100% of the time, no need for healing items.

However as Battle Priest you'd also frequently buy Concentration Potions, so that might turn that build a TINY bit more expensive.

 

However Battle Priests will struggle from level 70+ to level.

Thank you so much...I intend to make Exorcist priest as I often play solo more than party (I have no friends yet lol). I guess I'll play VERY SLOWLY lol.

Hmm well nowdays everyone just makes an alt account and has a priest follow them around.... so they are still good for grouping with friends since they can still attack.

I think they are pretty fun, carry an arc wand/healing staff around to swap when you use heal, and they have all the normal buffs so they are good in small groups and farming items with friends.

Sanctuary makes them a decient group healer, but they don’t have enough mana to solo heal and buff a large group (get sohee boots to help)

In woe they are also fun because of decrease agi, decent support and safety wall.

Oh and if you have a blacksmith friend... /rice

Keep in mind a lot of those that you saw were probably bots, they are the cheapest and easiest one for them to use since all they require pretty much is a stunner.

 While Battle Priests are fun they aren't really all that good. They're good at buffing and single target damage, that's about it. For the most part, anything you can do as a Battle Priest can and will be done better as another class. They are also really expensive to gear if you want them to be viable moving into endgame. I do have one and leveling past level 70+ has been very difficult. Parties are going to need a healer more than another DPS and since your DPS won't be very good to begin with, it'll be a challenge.

 

I wouldn't really recommend Battle Priest if you don't have a ton of funds to throw around into mandatory items like Snake Head[1] and Porcellio Card. Elemental Stunners can also be pricey.
