Commonly good skills in PvM content:

al_pneuma.gif Pneuma, al_heal.gif Heal, al_incagi.gif Increase Agility, al_blessing.gif Blessing, al_cure.gif Cure, al_angelus.gif Angelus

pr_strecovery.gif Status Recovery, mg_safetywall.gif Safety Wall, pr_sanctuary.gif Sanctuary, pr_lexaeterna.gif Lex Aeterna, hp_meditatio.gif Meditatio, mg_srecovery.gif Increase SP Recovery, pr_aspersio.gif Aspersio (Optional, if your Killer needs it), pr_impositio.gif Imposito Manus, hp_assumptio.gif Assumptio, pr_kyrie.gif Kyrie Elesion (less frequent, Assumptio is mostly the better option), pr_gloria.gif Gloria, pr_magnificat.gif Magnificat, all_resurrection.gif Resurrection, pr_redemptio.gif Redemptio (Really depends on how fast you can cast it, in most cases Resurrect one by one is just faster, and damages you less)

pr_magnus.gif Magnus Exorcismus (if you wanna dish out some damage on Undead enemies, good for clearing weaker slaves)


Why not Mana Recharge?

hp_manarecharge.gif Mana Recharge itself sounds nice with its 20% reduction on skill, but the big downside to it is the requirements to get the skill. You need to have Demon Bane and Mace Mastery at lv10 in order to skill it. Loki has Job Level 120, but in my opinion it's not really worth it and you might be better off skilling other things like Magnus Exorcismus or Turn Undead. Beside that, you naturally get a pretty neat SP recovery (Especially if you skilled Increase SP Recovery).

========== Healing and you ==========

Heal it probably by far one of your most important skills to keep everyone alive if they took damage. So getting it on high values is mandatory. Per se, there isn't a real cap on how high your value can go. However you get limitations by gears you can use and stats to obtain.
The general formula for Heal is [((BaseLv + INT)/8) * (4+8*SkillLv)]. A lot of other factors can affect the Heal. For example, my Priest without any gears and Meditatio does 5.460.


Heal Cap
When skilled Meditatio, the heal does up to 11.466. Lets add some equipment, shall we? Equipping and VVVSHardened Mace (I will give details to the items down below), the Heal becomes 15.134. Adding Rima's Ribbon with 2 White Lady Cards (together Heal Potency bonus be 70%) on top of that makes it 23.636. You get the drill of it.
You can stack Heal Potency bonus' but there is a cap to it, 100%. Which means, for example White Lady Card (each give 30%), will stack with 4 pieces to 120%. 20% be wasted to nothing, so people usually go with 3 of them.
Some Heal Potency Bonus don't stack however. For example 3 White Lady (90%) + LWW (10%) give together 27.352. However, if we combo 3 White Lady (90%) with a VVVSHardened Mace (10%, also gives INT) we will get 28.168. Only a few items can get pass over the Heal cap, for example Diabolus Robe (6%), together with VVVSHmace and White Lady (all over be 106%), they reach 28.576.

But reaching the Heal Cap doesn't mean you still can't go higher, INT bonus (INT+Value) also affect the Heal number. Also, Item and Gear effects of your Target can increase your Heal on them. Regeneration Potion increases received Heal by 20%. Healed3 Orb from Cedi by 3%, Healer's Heart Hat by 15% and so on.
Tl;dr: There are different scripts that go into the Heal cap, which means some a few Items can go over it. In general INT helps to increase Heal past the cap.


Heal "Bombing"

Heal Bombing is the term for using Heal as attack on Undead Property Enemies. It will not heal them, but damage them. It is a handy technique to quick level up Acolytes or Priests, since Heal has a low ACD. In WoE it can also be useful because it can hurt Evil Druid Users.

How to do it: Hold "shift" and aim for a Target with Heal. Alternatively you can type "/ns" and active the [no shift] option.



Heal Walking and Animation Breaking
Every skill has an animation that plays when you use it. Even if your skill has no Cast Delay (or at least not that big that you would feel much of it), you still will be delayed by your animation.
You can break this delay tho and spam a skill faster. "Heal walking" is one way to do it, you break the animation of Heal by moving. It does need a lot of practice tho.
Note: I am not very good myself at "Heal Walk", so the example here isn't perfect at all. Also laggy.
Another, more easier way to archive the "break" is by getting hit from an enemy. You will be in the being attacked position, and have less delay on the spam (a similar thing do Creators if they want farm Herbs from Plant Cultivation). The only downside to this is, that you will receive damage, meaning you do need to be tanky to keep up with your party.
Note: Since the EU proxy went down the drain I am laggy, I apologize for that.


========== Curing Abnormal Status and you ==========

High Priests got several skills to cure many status effects, in PVP and PVM. Many status effects you can visually see, like Frozen Targets being in Ice (and not moving) or Cursed Targets having a Grim Reaper and walking slow. As side note; on a limited time sale we got the "Lovey Set" which allows you to use the Skills Lauda Ramus and Lauda Agnus, which can cure status too. For more detail on that check out the Equipment options down below.

Frozen; Stun - Status Recovery
Curse - Blessing
Stone Curse - Blessing, Status Recovery
Silence - Cure, Lex Divina
Blind; Confusion - Cure    
Poisoning - Slow Poison (doesn't cure it, but slows it's effect)
Critical Wounds; Deadly Poisoning  - Cure (with Asteria Ring)

However, Critical Wounds is a bit harder to notice, but also very important to heal. The easiest way to notice if, for example your Paladin friend got the status, is by communication or if you notice that your Heal does way less then before on him.
    What does Critical Wounds do?
It reduces the effectiveness of Heal, Sanctuary and Aid Potion on the Target by 20%*Lv of the Critical Wounds inflicted (A Card that inflicts the status would be for example Drake). It can be dodged by Safety Wall (if you get melee) or Pneuma (if range), or by having 100+ PD.


========== The Party and you ==========

A good party set up is important to make everyone's support Job easier. Not only do you see nicely when someone is about to kiss the floor when their HP goes red, you also can easily buff everyone with Magnificat, Gloria or the third job buffs, Clementia, Cantocandidus, Lauda Ramus and Lauda Agnus.

Since the party changed with the client, you can now drag and drop party members onto your screen. Simply right click on the name you want to drag, hold and put it out of the Party window on your screen. You can put them anywhere, where it is the most comfortable to you. This only works when the Lock is open (red on the screenshot).

Keeping the Lock closed is important too tho. When you are done arranging your party members (or you like the window style more keep that), you need to lock it, otherwise it can happen that you accidentally drag them around while being in action.
Another thing, why you need to keep the Lock closed is, that if you spam, for example Heal, you will keep getting the "Chat 1:1" option (a small chat box will appear). This will not happen when the Lock is closed.


Angelus is one of the three party wide buffs you get. It is mostly, if even, only used in PVM. In WoE/BG/PVP it isn't used here because it can increase the SDEF by a lot, which will make you a Thana-Bait.
    What is a Thana-Bait and why it is bad?
Thana-Bait means that you will take more damage from people that use Memory of Thanatos Card. Usually people with a lot VIT gain this as side effect, because also their Soft Defense (SDEF) increases. You can see if you are Thana-Bait by the numbers at your [Def], example 40+119, with 119 being the SDEF in this case. Usually a value till around ~110 is considered ok, more SDEF can start to hurt.


Back line Support
If your guild is defending and you don't have much people on the portal that need to be baby sit, you can stay in the back.
That way you can keep up important buffs, keep Pneuma up and get receive no damage (which will take one less damage source from the devotion Paladin, making his job easier).
Same idea can also apply in PvM, like Cedi and RDC. In most cases, your Tank (should) be ok on his own. To avoid being hit by AoE Curses (such as Dark Lord in Cedi), you can stay in the back.



========== Soul Linkers and you ==========

Even tho your benefit from a Soul Link isn't as crucial as, lets say a Performer has, it can still be pretty handy.

    sl_priest.gifWhat does the Soul Link do?
The "Priest Spirit" increases the damage of "Holy Light" by +400%, and also increases the SP cost for the skill by +400%. This can make Holy Light to deadly weapon. With decent Equipment you can kill people with it quit easily (or Monsters).
However, there a few downsides to that. It is more of an "Surprise" tactic. Mostly all Priests do play support, so most people don't expect you to attack, if your are not already infamous for that. And that's where the biggest downside comes in play. Once the enemy knows you might gonna attack them, they can either start wearing "Maya Card" to reflect your attack or simply just start wear an Holy Armor, making you miss them.
In conclusion, it's a handy side option to pick off people off guard (people with no shield like Sniper/Gunslinger, or a Breaker in breaking attempt), but personally I wouldn't recommend it as soley way to go.

Kaite is one of the main Buffs a Soul Linker can give. It reflects magical damage, but also Heal. You can't heal a Target that got buffed with Kaite.


========== Breakers and you ==========


High Priests play a very important role on defending castles in WoE, especially the Emperium. The Emperium is a Small, Angel "Monster" with Holy Property.
Your main job will be the keep the HP of the Emperium high or full, which you can archive by casting Sanctuary under it. If a Breaker attacks it, usually either a Assassin Cross, Sniper or Stalker, you commonly can stop him by Aspersio him. His attack will become Holy, therefor missing the Emperium.

-- Side note: on the old rro, Breakers commonly used the Berzerk effect of "Lord Knight Card" to boost their damage. However while in Berzerk, they can't use Skills or Itemsm which made them the perfect target of being Aspersio'ed. They couldn't change their Weapon Property, if they didn't got dispelled. Nowdays, LKC is a pretty rare card, so you will most likely not face that. --

However, Breakers (sometimes) are also smart. If they are using an "Evil Druide Card", their Property becomes Undead. You can't Aspersio them. The only solution to that is depending on who attacks and how the conditions are. If a Assassin or Stalker melee attacks, you can only spam Safety Wall on the Emperium to protect it. If a Sniper or Stalker attacks it with a Bow, use Pneuma. Both will not work tho if there is a Landprotector under the Emperium.
You can protect the Emperium with a Square of 4 Safety Walls. One Pneuma on it directly should be enough to protect it from range attacks.


If the Breaker starts to attack you while his Weapon is Holy Property you can also change your Armor to Holy. He will miss on you as well then. Alternatively you can get a PD set when defending the Emperium. For breaking they use simple Melee Crit lock, they will miss on you if they not use skills.
Killing a breaker can be difficult as a pure support, since you will be either busy Spam Safety Wall/Pneuma on Emperium or Aspersio to prevent as much damage as possible. Tho, if they are Undead Property, Turn Undead or simple Resurrection will hurt them a lot.

Picture down below shows the usage of a PD set to avoid damage from a Assassin Cross (who apparently has not much brain /jk).




========== Mora Items and you ==========

Mora Dailies is a neat little time killer, the coins used for the several NPCs in Mora can be obtained by doing some small tasks for them or doing the Mistwood instance.
A detailed view of all the items in Mora can be found here.

The most interesting one of the Priest items is probably the "Light of Cure", because it can be enchanted with Cure Lv1 - Highness Heal. Beside that the Mora NPCs also provide the "Affection" Set to improve Priests heal powers. NOTE: The Highness Heal will not be available as a stand-alone Skill. It will be an auto cast effect on yourself.
2864.gif Light of Cure [1] - VIT +2, INT +2, DEX +2, Increase Heal Potency +5%. (Possible Enchants include: INT +1/+2, Mdef +6, DEX +1/+2, VIT +1/+2, HP +500, ATK +2% and Cure Lv1)
  ab_highnessheal.gif Highness Heal (Lv5) - Doubles the healing amount of your Heal on Lv1.

========== Gear Set Examples and you ==========

Note: Currently I am not maining my High Priest, beside doing some supportive stuff in instances. So the more WoE Oriented suggestions aren't optimal carded.

Left Image: Example for a tanky Demi-Resist set up, Cure of Light can we switched for Asteria for the AoE Heal.
Right Image: PD Focused set for facing Crit lock (mostly SinX). LWW with Gemini-S58 Card. NOTE: Gloria is active, Schwartzwald Pine Jubilee is active.

Example for PVM, supporting in instances such as RDC or Cedi. Tho, frankly, if your team is good and knows what it does, you not really need "special" items for such stuff. Just be prepared in case the world goes down and you need to do more then Buff and the Heal here and there. LWW here with Mistress Card.
NOTE: on stats for PvM, non-donor item areas, if you are switching from donor items, make sure you got enough DEX for the instant cast. 😜


Example for high Heal focused. NOTE: Blessing is active. Also, Bible of Promise, Light of Cure and Diablous Ring don't matter much in adding up the heal number. The only thing that would increase it now be Regeneration Potion and INT increasing items/gears.


========== Conclusion ==========

High Priest is a highly demanded support class for all their buffs and Heal abilities, tho for most people it can be a boring experience, since you mostly just sit there and watch other people do the killing. So kinda need to be the "support" player to keep on enjoying playing it.
Furthermore, people tend to keep pushing the blame on you if they die. But don't worry too much about it, if you know you did a decent job (and not stand there like a afk-bot or put wrong Buffs everywhere). And also, it can be a satisfying feeling when your team wins or holds the castles because of a decent support. :3
