Cleric is an archetype in Ashes of Creation.[4]

In a world often fraught with peril, 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. As masters over the very essence of vitality, they can sense the broken and corrupted... The strands of this essence connect everything and everyone. Clerics find themselves particularly attuned to the threads that channel life and motive energy. By reinforcing these tendrils, they can heal and even resurrect those that have been wounded. By tearing them, they can steal energy from their foes, turning their enemies’ powers against them amid the frenzied heat of battle.[5]

Skills/abilities

Restoration. Enhancement. Debilitation. Clerics keep their team in the fight by bolstering their combat abilities and cursing their enemies. Far from simply supporting their allies through healing, a Cleric is also capable of wielding destructive force in the face of danger.[5]

Clerics have control over life and this may relate to utility abilities that relate to corruption.[6]

Cleric augments

Classes with Cleric as a secondary archetype are able to choose between life or death augments.[19][20]

  • Choosing life augments will provide self-healing benefits as well as limited life-giving benefits to other players.[21][19]
  • 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.[22]
  • Cleric augments will radically change the type of summons available from the summoner primary archetype.[23]
    • Skeletons, zombies and other undead summons will be possible with death based augments.[23][24]

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.[19]Steven Sharif
