Exorcist Priest, ME or TU?

Postby Zenr » 2015-09-08 09:11 (Tuesday)

Hello,

I am leveling up an Acolyte as a future exorcist. The initial build was going to be for Magnus Exorcismus (INT & DEX), but I'm wondering, is it worth it? With a calculator, it seems it wouldn't be able to 1 hit KO nightmares, nor even marionettes (which would be the main point of this priest). In addition, this type is a bit hard to play as ME has a huge cast time, stoppable, and safety wall protects only 10 hits.

So I was wondering if it would be wiser to focus on Turn Undead instead, and at least be certaint that I can actually kill something with it.

What do you guys think?

You should be able to 1 hit those mobs easily. Calculators don't tend to factor in all the ME waves, just the first. So multiply that number you see by 10. My ME priest for example can kill everything in NIff in 1 ME.

ME is a lot more fun, TU is (was) good for leeching, and the stat build for that was quite different.
Get 99 dex and an int bonus, your ME shall be fast and powerful enough. You'll need other chars to gear you up, though.

With the lack of Anubis currently TU is simply not worth it in my opinion. Despite what your calculator says ME is also quite powerful and I can say for sure that nightmares burn rather well and quickly in a ME field. If you count on the first hit of the field to kill everything, then this may indeed prove a bit difficult. Sadly I have no experience myself as a ME priest but I can tell you that it works pretty well in combination with a mobber (especially in Niffelheim).
