  • Couple of Priest questions

    1. Are there any Eidolon pure endurance/blood spec priests out there?
    -not hybrid but pure blood spec, and do you enjoy it? (please give as much info as you feel necessary or message me on these forums)


    2. Are there any Eidolon pure AGI priests out there?
    -is it good or bad? the only thread i found about this was edited with all the info removed. (please give as much info as you feel necessary or message me on these forums)


    3. Do Priests balance well in the Late/END game standards compared to other class's? for PVP and PVE
    -like are you able to fight as good as others in say Sengolia or do Priests get killed alot quicker than anyone else.


    4. Was Blood spec meant to be a tanky damage dealer type of spec?
    -i see evidence of it within the spec, but as i level high the benefits are really insignificant.


    5. Do the Blood spec skills seem weak to anyone else?
    -As in, they seem like they were made for very low level priests and do-not scale to high level priest standards for Eidolon for example.
    -Another example would be "Enhanced Circulation" - the HP regen.. you would basically only go into this skill if you wanted more Magic damage reduction.
    -the blood spec skills seem to give less bonus's than what you would get if you went holy or hybrid.


    6. Are Holy priests at Eidolon Strong in Sengolia?
    -are holy priests able to heal through other players damage? or do they just fight and heals are insignificant at that level?


    I think that's all my questions i have

    what do you mean by healing through other players damages?is it healing yourself if you are being attacked by others or you are healing another player that is being attacked?

      Witch, the way you word these questions suggest to me that you already have some clue as to what the answers are :P
      These are my answers in my opinion.
      1) I am not blood or end priest but from what I've heard, they are substantially weaker
      2) I would go pure agi, if only heals crit D= otherwise, there really is not too much point since you would not be able to do the job you were made to do for just a few extra dodge and crit points.
      3) No definitely not. I was killed repeatedly by a rogue with 9-10kpatk with very average stats. I have 17kpdef and 36% reduction. I could do nothing once i was stunned and there was no way i could unstealth the rogue because lets face it, throwing curses around randomly isn't going to unstealth any rogue with the smallest amount of intelligence.
      PVE wise, priests are intially the first to solo things with the exception of vampire knights, but eventually all other classes surpass us being able to do it faster and more efficiently.
      4) Yeah they were SUPPOSED to be, but somewhere along the way the balancing went very awry. For example blood beam is 80% matk plus 4% current hp. increase of 0.1% per skillpoint used. This is much lower than the 3-4% attack gained by all other classes for every skill point put into a skill. 0.1% current hp is like... 2-300 extra damage with 2-300k hp whereas with the addition of 3-4% attack would be about 1.2-1.6k extra damage. Unbalanced? I think so. Especially since blood side is supposed to be somewhat damage dealer over time.
      5)Most of the blood skills are either bugged or so weak they might as well be bugged. Bloodguard at lvl 5 is only 3k ish extra HP useless when hp is anything over 100k. Tenacity at lvl 5 decreases incoming crit damage by 20% end game when people's crit damage is well in the 300% its almost negligable. Demon's grasp stuns a target for 8 sec but its channeled meaning you cannot do anything whilst target is stunned. Useless in anything but support. Also bugged in that cast time affect length. ie 200% cast time the skill only lasts 4sec.
      6) Lol see number 3. My favourite quote is "a matched priest is a dead priest" meaning any other class with similar stats will kill you no sweat There is no way to outheal them especially since heals cannot crit and as stated before end game everyone has 2-300% crit hitting at least twice in 1 sec while light heal takes 1.5sec (half that if you have good cast speed) to cast with 187% of your heal stats

      Basically priests are majorly unbalanced and things should be changed. With the 130-140 skills there is slight redemption but the sad part is one of them is very badly bugged still. PM me if you have more questions

        I would like to know both of those things lol.
        In the rare instance you donot get stunned or anything, would you be able to heal yourself through the damage?
        And
        Would you be able to heal other people who are being attacked, in for example a 1v1 situation, and you just happen to be there at the start of the fight and begin healing as soon as damage starts.

        I try to do my research before i ask a question.
        And alot of my questions were not answered or the thread ended up being filled with angry posts.

        So basically my assumptions were correct.
        In the beginning the game favored the blood priest, but as the game expanded, the blood priest did not, and was left in the dust with the old skills that don't get looked at or changed.

        I have heard the channeled spells that last X amount of time are effected by Cast speed and pretty much nuke the ability if it would ever be used for strategy.

        Alot of the abilities in the blood priest kit, like utility.. seem super weak... the only thing a priest can do is roll Hybrid to be able to keep up, and still falls short when compared to other class's.
        A complete spec of the Priest class is unusable at end game because there is no way to compete with the skills that the game started with.

        Thankyou for verifying what i feared was the case.

          Ok, so I managed to get a few people contact me via Forum messages, that had alot more detail and were able to supply me with screenshots.

          A couple of the people were so geared that im not sure what i was looking at lol.


          But i managed to gather a bunch of information, that im wanting to share and get some feedback on.

          Majority of the Priests had these:
          • Blood Attack Spells
          • Level 1 curses from blood spec
          • Hybrid spec with majority of their points in Holy.
          There was 1 exception, a priest who was full Blood except for the middle path on the Holy tree, with the Heal/IMP Holy Light/Grace/Circle of Healing.
          I asked why, he said it came down to preference and at his level it works out better for the way he plays at his level and gear, but he mentioned that alot of other priests play Hybrid.

          All of the people who contacted me via Private Message, did not know about any of the bugs, previously or currently with some of the Blood Spec skills.
          For Example: Demon Grasp being effected by Casting Speed, causing the spell to finish earlier than it says.

          And none of them could see a difference between "Tenacity" over "Guardian's Protection"
          I still have to speak to one of the people about this, but so far none of them who tested this could tell you that Tenacity is even working, and is a waste of 5 points, because you only get a minor boost, if it's even working.
          If that skill had something else on it like "1% chance to hit" or "1% chance on get hit to steal 1% max life" then have it go up by 1% per point, with a total of 5%, then they would definitely put 5 points into it.

          I did mention to a few of them about the lacking skills like "Enhanced Circulation"
          And they basically ignored it and said "the regen is super bad, only get it for the magic reduction" i got the impression that the reduction was not impressive to them.

              I think that's all my questions i have
              lets sum this up fast shall we? priest ain't built for pk vs knight/rogue/ranger/mage period.... maybe priests or weaker ppl sad to say but like was mentioned u'd have to be 3 times more op than a knight and that might allow u to beat him so basically u have to cash like GaLon or something and why waste all that money on a priest when u could make an INSANE knight o.0 but its not nessisarly the priets fault,i blame the frags and cash related things that make fighting a 1 hit bloodfest :P personally the should make frag armors or something to balance out the frag weapons lol

                So priest are gimped regardless?

                So far i have had people contact me telling me that:
                • R2 + CS = Dead Game. (wonder why they still play then)
                • Priests are stronger in the original version but R2 won't update. (crystal legacy or something like this)
                • Blood Priests suck, none of their skills ever get updated. (nothing changed ever or only thing changes was a massive nerf)
                • Priests only get nerfed. (recent patch says otherwise, but i wonder why a 2year old priest thread was ignored and only 1 spell was changed, yes i read the entire thing)
                • AGI priests are the best. (only 1 priest so far has come forward and told me about their agi priest, all other threads or information about this has been removed from the forum)
                • Priests are for farming low level dungeons for PC. (this everyone knows because blood priests skills are setup to do this stuff for level dungeons, when reading the tooltips you can see it for yourself)
                • END-GAME PVP is a joke, it's all 1 hit kills and stunlocks, no skills, just instant deaths and no fun, defenses mean nothing.
                I get alot of negative feedback about priests, more than what i have listed above.

                People are telling me that R2 take forever to update the game because they want to bleed it dry and just abandon it..
                So im at a stage where im wondering *** i am doing playing a game that has no future.

                No Future in the sense that, the recent patch where the priest skill "Improved Holy Light" is on all other server's and has been since the start of the original game..

                I also keep getting told that Crystal Saga only has 2 years of life left before everyone quits.


                I regret asking these questions.. because it has taken me to the dark side of the game, i really was not prepared for what i heard..
                Repeatedly.. and from multiples of people..

                So i leave this thread.. bewildered, wondering.. wth..

                  I think that's all my questions i have
                  I'm a blood focused hybrid and here's my input on your questions:

                  1: from what I've heard, definitely weaker than pure int or hybrid stats

                  2: pure agi is endgame. When you're pretty invincible, pure agi is only meant for pvp + more dodge in general. But remember that its greatly impacted on your soul level and whether or not you've already speced for pure agi. Without having a lot of stats/equips invested into your regular stats like hp def and m.atk, pure agi will gimp you a lot early on

                  3: this depends on whether you're blood or holy focused hybrid. Death cometh is the game changer for priests because of its ability to give stun immunity for 10sec. Blood pool is also a must have for pvp because its an aoe silencer with now EXTRA large range. They are still under powered compared to other classes tho

                  4: the problem with the blood tree is that it was nerfed when it came here. evidence of this can be seen on other versions where blood guard gave %hp, demons grasp did % hp drain dmg (based off targets hp) for example (not to mention how long death cometh was terribly glitched for several months since its initial release here). The game mechanics of curse also makes it less useful in any situation because of its additive multiplier against players. E.g. if a player had 200% atk, a maxed out curse of weakness caused the players attack to be 175% bonus instead of causing an overall 25% reduction. Number example: player with 100k base + 200% multiplier = 200k, curse of weakness = 175k atk instead of 150k atk. By endgame pvp, this reduction effect is extremely insignificant. Same applies to ring of decay. phlegmatic curse has some emrits but because every class except priests can counter it, its quite difficult to enjoy pvp (knights can charge with 130 skill, rogues can dash + purge glitch, mages can blink, rangers can purge, priests are... already ranged). The only merit to the blood tree for pvp is enhanced circulations 15% reduction, blood fog for forcing players to untarget you (useless if a mage uses only explosion), and sacrifice+death cometh for the best heal while in combat

                  5: continuing in relation to 4, yes it is not signicantly stronger than holy. blood flow gives 15% more attack which is addictive to your existing multipliers, not a final multiplier. The same applies to death cometh. So are you gaining more dps by using death cometh to boost your dmg? debatable. with significant attack speeds and high crit dmg and 100% crit rate, 1 attack could easily oust the bonuses attributed to death cometh not to mention a frost proc on top of that. Death cometh does allow priests to tank earlier than any class for 10sec however
                  hp regen is way too weak in any version of cs (skill or passive or otherwise) also refer to my notes on curses

                  The true trade off between holy and blood is 15% reduction, and 10% atk (15% blood vs 25% holy), 10% passive heal per sec, the ability to res (useless for soloers), 25% def (less significant at higher lvs), the ability to purge, stealthing, and a support based stun (also glitched as casting is affecting its time). (excluding scion,eido, and 130/140 off the list)

                  6. light beam is very good in seng if you got the cast speed and the stats, spirit infusion is actually a priests hardest hitting skill. Bloods have an easier time in seng as they can drain. Heals are only useful when you have the stats to use it decently and only healing wave imo. The other heals are usually used after fights not post. Players pretty much die in 2-3 hits so healing is rarely used post fight

                    1: blood = weaker than int and hybrid.

                    2: pure agi is endgame only, and requires heavy soul.

                    3: death cometh is handy because it has stun immunity, blood pool is handy for its aoe silence, but priest damage is noticeably weaker than all other class's.

                    4: R2 nerfed priest blood spec, curses don't work as the tooltip says, not working overall, just subtracting the % from the % asif it were + and -
                    -end game curses effects are useless, causing people to only ever put 1 point in them.
                    -every class can counter curses, except the class that can cast them...
                    -enhanced circulation for the magic dmg reduction, the regen is useless.
                    -blood fog is handy, sometimes.

                    5: blood spec is stronger than holy because of bloodflow and death cometh.
                    -early game priests can tank better, but later they cannot.
                    -hp regen is horrible
                    -some blood skills are still glitched

                    6: light beam and spirit infusion are the best damage dealing spells for priest, but require alot of cast speed and stats.
                    -most heals are used after a fight, healing during a fight is not an option.
                    -most people die in 2-3 hits in end game




                    So to sum up..

                    Everything everyone has mentioned is correct.
                    You have more information to make everyone's accusations FACT.
                    There is clearly a balancing issue, and bgs and glitches with blood priests that has been going on for a looooong time..

                    PVP end game is boring and almost instant.
                    Defenses/Resists mean nothing at end game. (only dodge and stuns)

                    I have read your thread, im always double checking on that thread, i don't understand some of the info on their, because its all clumped into a big fat paragraph sometimes, makes it hard to read.
                    And not at any fault of your own, the forum is not easy to organise your post's the way you want it.

                    I thought R2 had some dev's on staff that fixed bugs? i was told that by someone, 7 months.. or more is way too long to notice and fix a bug.
                    R2 are you listening to your CS players?

                      Oh right one more thing.

                      The priest frag weapon is quite weak compared to others. This is because when other classes get cool bonuses such as move speed, crit damage, etc etc we get HP and MP regen. REALLY useful huh.

                      200-300 every 3 sec at high level frag. SO useful when at that stage you can heal 70-80k in 1 sec. MP regen. I mean, really? Not like we dont already have 10% mp regen every 10sec or if youre blood, maxed out MP orb and pots. About the two most useless bonuses possible.

                      The priest slayers set is also quite nerfed in that we get less dodge and hit than other classes which is the reason most people use slayers. But instead get more HP and MDEF which, endgame a few extra hundred HP and MDEF is useless.

                      I've recently realised how nerfed priests are as compared to all other classes (rogues especially) and i feel sad that you have come to this realization too.

                        Let me clarify something about 1:
                        I meant pure end is weak, blood skill spec is stronger than holy priests but only marginally
                        pure end in either build is weaker

                          Blood spec is certainly stronger for pvp endgame but pve wise those buffs are really nice, especially early game.

                            Indeed.

                            Basically i have already noticed this myself.. even at a scion level.
                            -Priest requires LOTS of crystal to be balanced as equals to all other class's. and if any of those other class's throw that kind of Crystal at their character.. then the Priest is not even close to balanced/competitive with the other class's.

                            This thread has confirmed to me what i feared.. and that is the Priest class in R2's balance system is very underpowered and requiring alot more skill/crystal to be of equal standing with other class's.
                            -I repeat myself, that the 2 year old thread for priest's has been overlooked and possibly not even read by any R2 staff, the 1 patch for the IMP Holy Light is something that any player would have thought would have been done back when level 150 was added to the game..

                            Blood.. Holy... Hybrid.. whichever spec you want to look at, are weaker in all aspects of PVP when compared to all other class's, only in early PVE.. priests are good, and that stops at level 65, after this all class's catch up to be as equals in PVE, level 65 is under half the level of what the game offers.
                            -The priest gear benefits don't even work well with Crystal Saga's current world, the regen is nothing, they also get less stats on the gear in Savage and Slayer.
                            -You can verify this with the Tank priest Synth set for PVE also, It gives strength.. but somehow game developers don't see a problem with a Melee fighter sharing gear with a Magic caster.

                            I have had people tell me that they know a few R2 people who play CS, and none of them play Priest's.. so how do they even test or know anything about priests without taking the time to level them and test them and see what is actually happening in their game.
                            -And then we look at all the feedback players have given, that looks like it is completely ignored.

                            The constant lack of R2 feedback in all the threads i have been researching for priest's is very upsetting and disappointing.
                            -It looks like they had 1 forum moderator or R2 employee a long time ago.. like 1-2 years ago, but it seems they have quit and from that.. the whole R2 communication stopped dead, the only thing we can get out of R2 is from the forum Moderators, like R2 doesn't even want to talk to its players.

                              Even as a supportive role, which the priests were supposed to be built for, begins to be redundant later on.

                              With the introduction of the beast soul, specifically seiryu soul, basically make most toons with decent attack speeds almost invincible, especially rogues who can, with 200% attack speed (which most non-noob rogues have) regen 20% HP per sec. This outheals the priest's light heal which is the skill that heals the most that does not have a big cooldown.

                              Knights and their bloodlust skill can lifesteal about the same as a priest can heal, with no cast time and a constant dps.

                              When laddering endgame or whatever, priests almost always do nothing, because the DPS or tank either get one shot or don't need many heals at all with pet rotation and stun locks and kiting skills.

                              No one ever parties up for dungeons so priests are useless there too.

                              R2 we need you to listen to the priests. I love the priest class and their cuteness but the difference in power is just too large. People who i should be much stronger than at my level and gear can kill me and i cant do anythin
