Your adventure party will be challenged with obstacles and challenges that test their mettle. Your resoluteness and will to fight are vital to complete the most difficult tasks. The Forgotten Realms will test the strongest fighters – how will you fare?
Fortunately, an ally is at your side: The Devoted Cleric. This versatile class is capable of handling any situation your party may encounter. In a support role, their heal abilities are unmatched in Neverwinter. In combat roles, the Devoted Cleric can punish foes with the likes of a seasoned Guardian Fighter. Many enemies have wrongly underestimated the power of a Devoted Cleric – with deadly consequences.
The Devoted Cleric can also turn the tide in battle with outstanding area control abilities and single-target holy damage. Furthermore, they can build divine power by dealing damage to enhance skill effects through channeling. Which spells should a devout Cleric focus on? Below are a few of the Devoted Cleric’s abilities.
Lance of Faith is their most reliable attack; few enemies can withstand incoming spears of light. To bend enemies to your will, encase them with the cleric’s alternate at-will Astral Seal power. Your party will recover health by attacking a spellbound enemy! If you prefer to channel your divine powers, press Tab to switch to a different set of divine powers. Punishing Light deals a steady stream of damage while Soothing Light restores health to the cleric and any ally he or she targets. The cleric’s versatility is key to keeping you and your party alive for the next dungeon delve!
There are even more powerful spells at your disposal, but for only the most experienced Devoted Clerics. One of the first encounter abilities available is Daunting Light, an area-of-effect spell that casts a divine column of light to rain down on enemies. Used with divine power, the Devoted Cleric can cast some spells quicker and affect a larger area! One of the first daily powers is Hallowed Ground. The cleric sanctifies an area to reduce incoming damage for allies and buffs their damage output in desperate times in battle – use it wisely!
This is only a small glimpse into the true power of a Devoted Cleric. One must fight alongside them to truly understand how invaluable and necessary they are. Play as a Devoted Cleric or recruit one for your adventures in Neverwinter’s Forgotten Realms today!
