Champion of Magran - Priest of Magran/Bleak Walker (Priest/Paladin)

Recommended Posts

Overview: 

 

Hey guys welcome to my Pillars of Eternity 2 min/max item and build guide! Today im going to be showcasing a build which uses the Priest and Paladin subclasses "Priest of Magran and Bleak Walker". 

This build mixes the best support spells and abilities from Priest/Paladin with their strongest fire based spells to make a strong flexible support. It can reach upto +5 Fire PLs, +2 Resto PLs with +65% healing done.

It can work both as a strong frontline tank by equipping Lethandria's Devotion (Shield) in the offhand, or add some more damage by going Sun and Moon which adds + 2 Fire Power levels during the day. 

It offers a wide variety of AoE fire spells and Flames of Devotion (Shared Flames) will add a substantial dps increase to the rest of your party members.
