Cleric augments

Classes with Cleric as a secondary archetype are able to choose between life or death augments.[22][23]

  • Choosing life augments will provide the ability to provide self-healing benefits as well as limited life giving benefits to other players.[24][22]
  • Some cleric augments applied to certain skills will indirectly provide the ability to heal others. These will not replace the need for a cleric archetype.[25]
  • Cleric augments will radically change the type of summons available from the summoner primary archetype.[26]
    • Skeletons, zombies and other undead summons will be possible with death based augments.[26][27]

Any class that's going to choose Cleric as a secondary class will have the ability to pick from those augments to influence their skills to affect the life of others around you.[22]Steven Sharif
