Hybid Priest DPS/Support

The Hybrid Priest
Priest are always known for being the support character. This guide however is leaning on the DPS side of the skill tree but without losing its potential to be a support in dungeons. DPS priest w.o healing skills is a very bad joke, Full Support priest are party friendly but tend to overheal and questing w/o a damager can be agonizingly long. Priest are always suppport, we can never take that role away from priest. But having level 1 Holy Light while doing solo quest is taking too long to kill and too boring. This guide will give you an option to deal damage and Support at the same time.

Str - dont need this
Agi - each point gives Critical+5 and Dodge+5
Int - each point gives Magic Power+2 and Parry+2
Wis - each point gives Max MP+10
Vit - each point gives Max HP+5

Stat Builds
I.   40/40/8 agi/int/vit - conventional stat build that gives decent crit and has decent damage and heal value w/ a little HP.
II.  31/49 agi/int - high heal and damage value with som crits.
III. 49/31 int/vit - heal and damage with HP. wont crit as much.

I will categorize all of the skills of Acolyte and Priest into 3. OffensiveUtility and Support
I will only talk about the skills Ive taken.

Offensive Skills (Left Side of the skill tree)


Utility Skills (Middle of the skill tree)


Support Skills (Right Side of the skill tree)



I. Hybrid Build 1 -
my build complete w/ Genesis Ray 5. Assumptio is maxed since it saves people and personally much better that using Sanctuary. Sanc heals every 2 secs (they would have died already if they are being focused on) while this reduces damage instantly giving more time to use potions and be healed.

II Hybrid Build 2 -
more healing on sanctuary because some people arent at ease when they see sanctuary healing poorly. too bad..

III. Archangel Hybrid -
my another prospect build. but will have a hard time in leveling because of level 1 Holy Light and level 1 Heal. 2 points can be put in either Sanctuary or Lex Divina.

Skill Rotation
Note: Always cast Posted ImageRenovatio to yourself whenever it wears out just to be safe.

Long Range Kiting - the usual skill rotation
Posted ImageCredo+ Posted ImageOratio + Posted ImageAdoramus + Posted ImageRay of Genesis then finish off with Posted Image Aspersio + Posted ImageHoly Light

Skill Rotation(Single Target Only)
Posted ImageCredo+ Posted ImageOratio + Posted ImageAdoramus + Posted Image Aspersio + Posted Image3x Holy Light + Posted ImageRay of Genesis to finish off

AOE Rotation -
apply Posted ImageCredo+ Posted ImageOratio + Posted ImageAdoramus to atleast 3 enemies then Posted Image Aspersio + Posted Image Magnus E + Posted ImageJudex.
Heal yourself and use Posted ImageHoly Light to targets that are still alive.

Support Skill Notes - there is no rotation when support as you only react based on whats going on.
1. Always apply Posted ImageRenovatio to everyone
2. Posted Image Highness Heal is your main healing skill for those who are taking damage. Posted ImageHeal is just secondary heal if the target is taking too much damage.
3. Posted ImageAssumptio is usually used on tanks but can be used to the dpser or yourself. experience will teach you the right decisions to make in these times.
4. Posted ImageSanctuary is usually used whenthe boss summons mobs or skills an aoe that damages everyone down to 20% HP.
5. Posted ImageColuceo Heal no need to explain. Instantly fully heals the target in expense of long cooldown.
6. Always use the Posted ImageAspersio + Posted Image Resurrection in reviving a friend. Its more time consuming when using the Resurrection alone.
And please bring extra Posted Image Ygg Leaf as this also revives and has no long cooldown. Can be bought on Kafra.
7. Never buff Posted ImageSacrament as it decreases magic attack power by 10% at any levels. It looks good to have its aura but it decreases the DoTs.

Leveling Guide
Do the quest and Khara quest at the same time. you will level trust me. no RO1 grinding needed. Do quest solo as much as possible since having party gives only half exp by killing monsters. Dungeon quest are meant to be party quest except for the culvert quest at level 11-12 which can be done solo.

Skill allocation (for build with Ray of Genesis only)

Level 1-10 = you will rush the aspersio as it will make your level 1 holy light crit and hits twice as hard

Level 11-25 = you will have Highness Healing by the time you reach the wolf cave dungeon. it is needed to heal your party in sync with Renovatio

Level 25-onwards = here on you decide what to prioritize. but if i may suggest to max Ray of Genesis Early after maxing Blessing for fast solo questing.

Cards & Runes
Use Scratch Thief first since its provides most Vit and it doesnt cost much zeny.
Change to Poisona Card accordingly.
