Default Priest vs. Dark Lord

Hey guys~ I'm really undecided on what I'm going to do with my dragon. I have had a light hybrid Wizard before, and currently have a light Witch. Generally, I'm only interested in Priest or DL.

So I want to know a little bit more about both classes. I'm not concerned about PvP, as I don't do it anyhow. I'm not really concerned about bossing, either.

Basically, I'm wondering how well they do in CT. And generally how well each class handles itself in PvE, if that makes any sense. x.x

Something to keep in mind: I don't have access to MS. So I'll have to make-do with the equips my Witch used/uses (so I'll be fine up to ~215 or so, I think).

I hope that all made sense. ._.

Edit: I do have HP innerwear and shields (Dragon vest 190 with 5.7k HP, and a flash bat shield with 5.7k HP).

If you're using your light witch's equips, Priest.

If you're willing to make a good altiverse shield and I'd personally recommend an HP alti accessory as well with decent MA. The boss accessories/shields work well too. They have decent MA base but if you're looking for more/can afford it alti would be better overall. Personally I plan on using an Ice Nail and the Amelie 180 acc.


After writing the Priest/DL builds, DL looks like it has a lot more neat skills than Priest, personally. They get the giant glowy pillars of doom and DLs get a lot of neat snares/damage boosts/unique skills. Almost all of their skills are really useful, writing it made me want to make one personally, but I have my SMs gear prepped if I ever wanted to anyway (or just defrost my witch and swap to dark)

Priests do better in general PvE than DL's because of more AoE's. DL's are better than priests at some traditional training spots.

Priests take forever to kill in CT and sometimes need help. They do quite well in outside bossing. DL's have a better and easier time in CT due to strong attacks, since obviously they're the powerhouse route compared to a supportive priest. They only have Odinea as a problem in outside bossing, but other than her, they also do quite well.

Ahh, actually, I do have HP shields. I should edit that into my first post. I have a 4.2k HP blood shield, and a really nice 5.7k HP flash bat shield (it's unrefined, and I need to work up the DP/MD a bit). I've also got a 5.7k HP innerwear for 190. x.x

I could probably afford some decent altiv. accessories as well (I only have a flash bat ring on my sheep). A lot of my better equips are just higher leveled (200+), so I'm a little worried about survivability as a DL until 180 (when he can use my blood shield).

Hm~ Priests being a bit slow on CT is a bit of a downside. Though, outside bossing really isn't a concern to me, as I only go with my champion.

I've also heard that Priests end up somewhat boring later on...? That doesn't really surprise me, but I'm wondering if that's anyone else's opinion.

Yeah, it does get boring for me. Coming from a light witch perspective, you're always under SoH, hearing the jingling of light shield and don't have much variety in attacks. You'll mostly being spamming radiant, light wave and celestial. Though I find celestial the only exciting thing about them, besides getting to heal people in PvP 8D

So basically, I'd be better off... not bossing with a dragon.
This is okay with me. xD

Is Celestial the giant pillars of light? Because I have to say, that skill looks badass. lol

Yup, it looks like huge fat white pillars of thick light. Searing Light is like multiple light arrows AoE and you fly with it too lol, but you can't with celestial.

If I picked classes purely on aesthetics, I'd end up a priest. That skills so cool looking.

Still looking for others' opinions on the playing style of either class~

hmm... i'm a 14x DL and one thing i envy much about priests is their mobbing skills. DL have powerful attacks that pretty much 1hko everything, but in terms of mobbing skills we only have like gravity crush, which doesnt seem like the easiest skill to use - only got a few points in it now.

priest skills are also very very pretty and flashy...

just my 2 cents worth

This is... a pretty old thread, and I've long since picked a path. ;x

Thanks, though.
