What's the best manastones for a Cleric :/
Posted 01 October 2009 - 06:04 AM
Just wondering on everyone's input. I've read around and the main manastones clerics use are: HP, MP and Magic Boost. I heard the MB doesn't apply to making our healing better - correct?
If the MB doesn't apply to healing, I would either use MP or HP. I want to be 100% healing priest. Not sure what's better. Any ideas? :):study:

My personal recommendation is HP, HP and moar HP.
Thats likely the most common answer you will get when asking what a strictly healing Cleric would choose.
As a secondary, most say MP, Shield Block or for some reason Magic Boost.

Therefore, for group play you want to ensure that you're one of the last ones standing if things do turn nasty. If you can soak damage like a tank then the criteria is filled! HP for group play is the only manastone you will need.. however:
You will most likely not live your life in groups until later in the game. Aion is too solo friendly at earlier levels to rely on groups so for this I'd recommend half HP and half Magic Boost. You'll kill so damn slowly without the MB that it'll just drive you nuts.

@Smidge: Yeah, I understood your post. I don't see WHY I would do that, considering this is a AION forum, for CLERICS, so I can ask any question that I'm unsure of and know that I will get a correct answer, instead of me googling my question, and searching through links to find that 90% of them are useless. No need to be a prick.
@Carthel: Thanks, as I'm only level 19 and haven't learnt new skills since 17, I didn't really know about the priest mana renewal skills, until I read around a bit :P. I'm probably 90% heading towards full HP.

Yeah stack all with HP. Obviously go for whatever is the best upgrade for you, but yeah I'd try to get some MP off of your jewelery pieces if you can.

 I look for concentration foremost on my accessory slots, sucks having a needed heal fail...

Yeah it's generally a bad idea to use penance around the levels when you first get it but it gets better later on. You can also rest during combat, and you can gain lots of mana by sitting occasionally when healing is slow.
