The purpose of this suggestion is to introduce diversification for the Cleric class, such as Heal-specialist (knows specialized healing skills) and Buff-specialist (knows specialized buff skills). These new skills also allow Clerics to play an interactive and strategic role in teamplays.

In this suggestion, there will be five types of buffs:
Blessed buffs, are buffs with long duration same as traditional Cleric buffs.
- Charm buffs, are traditional Cleric buffs redesigned with longer cooldown and stackable efficiency (up to 150%).
- Healing skills with buff, are regenerating skills with minor buffs.
- Blessings buffs, are strong buffs with short duration and long cooldown.
- Chant buffs, are stackable and spammable buffs (up to 600% efficiency).

  • RoseOnPlayer changed the title to Cleric-related Muse Skill-tree Suggestions

I think one of the issues too is that the fact Cleric seems to be the only class where their main ability scaling stats are different depending on what you want to do.

This further shrinks diversity in their builds, off the bat you need INT to wear wands (quite a lot actually compared to for example bourg launchers requirement to use launchers), A lot of CHA to be able to support decently. I think for example Ouroboros wand already requires something like 250 INT while the Reverse cannon, requires less than 140 STR.

Bourgs still scale heavily off CON for everything else i believe unless it was changed.

I think one of the main needed changes would be to get rid of scaling from CHA, and have everything scale off their main stat, this would make them at least not completely useless in their other form, this would also help other classes now that they have buffs too, to not need to pump CHA to be able to boos their buffs.
