Cleric is an archetype in Ashes of Creation.[3]

In such a dangerous world, a cleric is never wanting for friends. They can protect their allies in a number of ways and when necessary, snuff the life out of others. Masters over the very essence of life, they can sense the broken and corrupted.

Cleric augments

Classes with Cleric as a secondary archetype are able to choose between life or death augments.[21][22]

  • Choosing life augments will provide the ability to provide self-healing benefits as well as limited life giving benefits to other players.[23][21]
  • Some cleric augments applied to certain skills will indirectly provide the ability to heal others. These will not replace the need for a cleric archetype.[24]
  • Cleric augments will radically change the type of summons available from the summoner primary archetype.[25]
    • Skeletons, zombies and other undead summons will be possible with death based augments.[25][26]

Any class that's going to choose Cleric as a secondary class will have the ability to pick from those augments to influence their skills to affect the life of others around you.[21]Steven Sharif
