Newbie Priest Guide   

Possibly the most self sufficent class on the mud, Priest are
a mix of a Warrior and a Cleric. Capable of being played as a
straight up fighter, or a spellcaster, or a mix in between tailored
to the players choice and preferences, Priests are among the
most versatile.They are strong enough to utilize their physical
attacks, and also as capable utilizing spells, with both attack and
defensive spells in their arsenal. A Priest's main stat attribute is
Wisdom, so a Sprite would be almost most logical, as it's the only
class with a modifier to WIS at character creation, but a Half Giant
(for the HP) or Elf (for a fairly balanced spellcaster) race Priest is
not unheard of. Like a Necromancer, the Priest is sufficient due
partially to their ability to gain hitpoints back while utilizing their
spells for attack on the enemy.  They also have a wide variety
of defensive spells aiding in their adventures.  Unlike many other
classes, a Priest is fairly capable throughout their entire run through
the levels, without any significantly difficult areas to level.
