Pandora Saga Cleric Guide



Pandora Saga Cleric Guide by OnyxPearl

So you want to be a cleric? As the main healer in every group, the cleric is the quintessential support character. In this guide I will show you the basics of the Cleric and hopefully help you guide your build! In an attempt to make a pretty, organized guide, this will be broken into several posts.
Note- This guide is based on my personal experience as a cleric, there is always a new and fresh way to build a cleric. Nothing I say excludes anything else.

Choosing a Race
Healers come in all shapes and sizes, a healer can be any race, but I will list them in what I personally feel is the most useful race.

Lapin
Tied in first with elves, lapins make good clerics for a few good reasons.
-Base stats in Spi and Int are high.
-Race Skills are good (listed below).
-Easy to hide – weird but true.

Magical Resistance +10% Magic Defense
Inner Light +15% MP recovery
Enkidu Support Boosts Magic Defense of Enkidu in party
all three of these are good, most clerics choose Inner Light

Elf
With high base Int and Spi, elves are also a great choice for cleric. They are best for their Race Skills.

Nature’s Harmony Reduces MP skill costs by 15%
Steadfastness Reduced duration of mental debuffs
the best choice would be Nature’s Harmony, but Steadfastness could also be useful!

Enkidu
Enkidus are a good choice for Cleric due to their high base Stamina and their Race Skill.

Stone Skin Reduces damage from melee attacks +10% armor defense
Lapin Support Boosts Physical Defense of Lapins in party
Stone Skin is great for a tanky cleric build!

Myrine

Calmness Chance to convert 10% of damage taken into MP
Sharpness Bonus to Evasion +5%

Human

Adaptability Reduces duration of Ailments/physical debuffs by 50%

Dwarf

Stronghearted Very small chance to resist death

Builds

Building a cleric is very closely tied into the gear you have, that being said, here are some general templates for the common cleric.
(Base indicates the amount of points put into spi without additional points given through gear bonuses)

Tank Build

99 Int
30 – 40 (base) Spi
30 Dex
Rest Sta

For people trying to maximize tankiness, the dex is often left out.

Mana Build

99 Int
50-60 Spi
Rest Sta

This build strongly focuses on having the maximum amount of mana, which is given by high amounts of Spi.

As far as other builds go, I personally do not suggest an agi build, since you would have to sacrifice one of the vital Cleric stats (Int Spi or Sta) to do so. Many suggest that only 90 Int is necessary, some say not as much Spi,some say no dex, while others stress 50 sta minimum. That being said, a good cleric build is one tailored to your gear and your style of play. As long as you have the standard framework of High int, sufficient spi and sta, the other stats are up to your discretion!
