And yeah, for the clerics in particular that's a massive increase in power. One of their powers is pretty close to enabling cheat mode after the hard start.
I'm sure you're referring to Black Hole. Yeah, that ability is hilariously OP. I LOVE IT.
I suffered so much in the early game that once I got my Psi Amp and discovered Black Hole I went mad with power and started exacting vengeance everywhere I went.
Edit: If any of the other PB games are anything to go by, you're going to be essentially a God of Destruction in late game no matter what you chose. Heck, I chose the super underpowered voodoo over the ridiculously OP muskets in Risen 2, and I was still obliterating enemies in late game.
Edit 2: Again, that's what I love about PB games. Because there is no level scaling and zero hand holding there is a very real struggle early on, one that may make some people quit, but if you push through that you can feel yourself grow so much stronger and being able to smash once seemingly impossible (nothing is ever truly impossible in PB games, even at lev 1) foes feels so good because you went through the struggle, because the enemies were not scaled to your level and you were frail and pathetic and afraid, rather than always somewhat evenly matched.
