  3. Best race for the cleric?
3 years ago#1
I'm trying to decide what race to play, that would be the most beneficial for the cleric. Does anyone know?

Unless you're min-maxing I don't see race as being an important factor at all. The bonuses are fairly negligible, so I'd say choose the race you like the most.

Human.


Half-Elf gets a bunch of random bonuses while Human actually lets you pick a few.

What?


No, Dilletante gives you the following bonuses:

You are just naturally better at many facets of life, gaining +1% Deflect, +1% Critical Severity, and +1% Gold Find.


In total it's a 3% bonus, but how useful for a Cleric is "Gold Find" in the long run? Critical isn't bad, but wouldn't you rather have something else instead of that 1% deflect?


The human gets 3 bonus feats, which basically equate to a total 3% bonus too, but you can put the bonus feats into things that actually help you as a Cleric (Including 1% Crit.)

And if you read up, Wisdom, although the primary stat, isn't the most important.
Some prefer int and cha for lower cooldowns to spam more often.
There was too much inconsistent info about Clerics for me. I deleted my lvl 7.
Also I cured 2 people in Blacklack Skirmish and had a Hulk from across the map insist on me the whole time. Very interesting.

The human bonus can be far greater than a 3% bonus because of the way feats work by having to have 5 points in each tier to progress. This means you get the ability to place 3 extra feats at the 4th tier level or prior which allows you to essentially get a bonus far greater than most other racials.

Using a Cleric as this example you can essentially max cleanse for 30% and still put 5 points into divine power gain basically giving you either a free 30% cleanse or 9% extra divine power gain compared to any other race.

Value for Point, I'd say wisdom is the most important.

The only other argument would be for Charisma, since that offers Recharge Speed and Extra Action Points.

But yeah, if you want more balanced stats that will benefit you overall, one of the other races is worth considering. If you want to max out your damage and healing, then I'd say human is the best choice.

The feats are the only reason to choose human over half elf, i started my half elf with rhe same ability scores I had with my human one when I made him.

Humans are just so boring. I can't bring myself to play one regardless of feats.
