Repulsing seal is a bit imba i think. It has huge acc bonus as far as i see it in the logs and the duration is huge. Slicken on steroids.

 

repulsing seal doesn't have a huge acc bonus.  what it does have is synergy with mechanics.  the priestly seal spells count as traps.  therefore, if you have high mechanics skill, you get the same boost to your seal spells as you would get for setting a trap.  this synergy results in potential near guaranteed crits with seal spells for priests who max mechanics.

 

*shrug*

 

go figure.

 

HA! Good Fun!

Salvation Of Time was already out of my mind the moment I read the spell description. 

 

I completed poe on potD a few days ago and I used it once.

 

Why would it be a fun thing to cast a spell to...extend your buffs?

 

Some times I swear devs arent playing their own game lol.

 

I agree with all the rest  people had to say in this thread though, some really good reflections :)

It can be VERY powerful when you bother to stack enough buffs for a giant boss fight.
But the benefit is directly related to how much you need all those other buffs in the first place.
I spammed it for fun on the Adra dragon and was rolling in the 100+ damage hits (PotD).
But if you are already mowing through everything without it, it adds nothing.

This appears to be false.  I just tested Repulsing Seal on a priest with no points in Mechanics.  I then used the cheat console to add 10 points in Mechanics and retested.  The accuracy score for Repulsing Seal in the combat log was the same regardless of the priest's Mechanics score.

Problem with shining beacon is its centred on the priest, so if Im playing mine like a squishy caster I'd rather use the seal of fire instead.

 

Oh nvm it isnt, I was confusing it with something else.

In the interest of brevity, this will be "what was Durance spamming during my Hard playthrough?"

 

Lv 1: Nothing notable. Withdraw disappointed because a guy sitting out the fight for 30 seconds might as well be KO'd

Lv 2: Divine Mark and Iconic Projection are excellent, but Mark's low range makes it a liability at higher levels

Lv 3: Circle of Protection and Pillar of Prone

Lv 4: Worth bringing a Priest just for Devotions of the Faithful

Lv 5: Restore Critical Endurance, Shields for the Faithful, Revive the Fallen

 

Heals are fairly weak in my opinion, but they become more useful later because enemy AoE usage increases steadily throughout the game. Also a custom Priest with higher Int and Mig than Durance would get a lot more mileage from them.

 

Lv 3:  Dire Blessing's +20% criticals for all FRIENDLY AOE is hard to overlook, it renders the wizard's Mesmerize completely useless.

Merciless Gaze? :)

It's not really a spell, but for me Inspiring Radiance is the best thing about priests.

Especially if we have 6 priests in your team :w00t:

Suppress Affliction [2?/10]

Whenever I try to use it, the thing I try to 'suppress' does not count as an affliction.

 

 

Maybe the creator of that spell was a dual class Lawyer/Priest.

 

 

I like Armour of Faith and Bless. Never found much use for withdraw... so you can sit there at 10% health for 30 seconds instead of dying - means you die 30s later. It would be good if you could cast healing spells or self-buffs, drink potions etc.

 

Halt seems pointless, by the time it is cast they are right next to you and hit you with melee weapons - means taking a disengagement attack to move away from them

Forgive my ignorance, but why is that? The +5 accuracy doesn't seem overly amazing. Is it because it stacks with other accuracy buffs or something?

It's +10 ACC and yes: it stacks with everything, even with itself (from different priests). It also is 1/encounter, it's a fast cast and the size of the AoE is big, covering the whole party with ease.

If I play an MC priest and also take Durance (two priests are better than one, so I nearly always do that) I will have +20 ACC right at the start of every battle without spending a spell use, landing CC effects reliably.
