OVERVIEW

First of all we need to know what priests in fairyland can do. There were two type of priests in pre-mermaid patch fairyland. Firstly, the more popular support priest and the other type is the warrior/priest hybrid. After the mermaid patch, there are two new priest type introduced. They're the priest/bm hybrid designed to catch rare pets and the pure pk priest. Throughout my guide, I will be explaining each of the four types of priest separately to avoid confusion.

Now that there is a US server for FL, i will seperate the pre-mermaid patch info and post-mermaid patch information to avoid confusion.

What Can Different Type of Priests Do?

Support Priests:
Enhance own party members and reduce the effectiveness and efficiency of enemy attacks with the use of spells like spiritual shield, pine grove and many more.

Warrior/Priests:
Enhance your own attacks and reduce the armour of enemy to deal more damage with spells like burning blade, combustion and many more.

Mermaid Patch
BM Priests
Prevent the beast from running with pine grove or pine forest while clearing the mob around it by either killing them or whirlpooling them.

PK Priest
Pine forest the opponents for 3 turns and unleash your attacks on them. Buff pets to deal more damage. Debuff your opponents. Paralyse them for another 3 turns again. Your opponents will have no chance to move.

RACE

Each race has its own advantage over the other races. All the different type of priests have different advantages in each race too.

Human
Good for all types of priest as their starting stats are more evened out. More ever, they will have better hp growth right from the start as compared to elfs.

Dwarf
Best race for warrior/priests. Starts out with highest amount of strength and con. Which would mean best hp growth among the three races. Important if hybrid and have to take a considerable amount of damage like a warrior.

Elf
Best for pk priests. Most dex and int growth, so your priest can become as fast possible. Good for support priest and bm/priests. Starts out with the highest amount of int and dex. Which means more mp growth and good dex to get those status spells in as soon as possible. And also start with more charm and its important to catch rare pets with higher charm.

EQUIPMENT

When About To Level Up

Depending on whether you want more hp or mp, put on con sets or int sets. Set includes ring, neck, wand, and hats. Rings and neck come with stats at lvl 1. Wand and hats come at lvl 30. So be sure to buy them and put them on when you are about to level up.
+3 rings and necks come at lvl 1
+3 wands and hats come at lvl 30
+4 rings and necks come at lvl 40
+4 hats come at lvl 40
+4 wands come at lvl 42
+5 rings and necks come at lvl 50
+5 wands and hats come at lvl 50
+6 rings and necks come at lvl 62 onwards depending on what stats
+6 hats come at lvl 66
+6 wands come at lvl 62
Thats a rough guide for those looking for the lowest possible equipment to get the highest possible stats.

Warrior/Priests
Dont really think that this type of priests will do alot of boss fighting. But if they do, use dex sets. As their wand would not do alot of damage to the boss.

Mermaid Patch
BM/Priests
Dont really think that this type of priests will do alot of boss fighting. But if they do, use dex sets. This lets them move faster and improves their dodge rate.

PK Priests
Use int sets. Their dex is generally more then enough while fighting any bosses already. It would help if the status spells they cast were more effective.


NOTE:Hit rate and damage stats on wands will affect the hit rate and effect of your spells. So try to get a wand with better stats.

NOTE:Also use luck set if hunting for quest items or rare items.

NOTE:Some of the starter pets that you get are good, do not abandon them. For example, mud slime is a good armour pet. Fire beetle a good combat and arms pet.


Combat pets for different purposes:

Leveling
Gem crawler (reset) - Skills of this creature is simply fabulous. And it can even learn elemental skills, healing, which is essential for a low lvl priest that still cant handle without an extra healing pet yet. It can learn 4 skills too, which is the highest amount of skills that a pet can learn now. Skills that make this pet so great include sacrifice, vampirism, combo, play dead and recovery. And the reason that it grows in str/random makes it even greater for priests who cant deal damage except on depending on their pets in this patch. Lower lvl priests can let this pet learn combo, sacrifice, recovery and desperate strike. Higher lvl priests that do not need healing from pets already can let gem crawlers learn combo, sacrifice, vampirism and play dead.

Light lizardman (reset) - This pet grows exactly like a gem crawler. Except that it cant learn elemental skills. It doesnt mean that it sucks anyway cause it has one of the most powerful skill combo in game. Boost and combo. But one of the negative thing about this pet is that it can only learn 3 skills. Other useful skills it can learn are play dead and transfer hp. This pet will work for higher lvled priests who dont need a healing pet and want more power in their pet.

Fire crab (reset/non) - One of the most underrated pets in the game. It is very good for high lvled priests lvl 50 above who want to train in islands tulip and above. Growing in str/con/luk, it will deal good damage, can take and dodge hits, and can hit the target moderately. The hit rate will be better after you cast enchant blade on it, so it is not a factor to be worried about. What makes this pet so good is that not only it grows in one of the best stats combination in the game. It has fabulous skills too. Combo and boost is a few of those greats skills from this crab. Other good skills this pet has is sacrifice and play dead.

Mermaid patch
Fire tiger (reset) - Once you get the pine forest spell, you wont even need to keep your pet alive cause the enemy will hardly get to touch you and your party at all. So i would go for a pet with raw power such as flame tiger, apolion, fire lizard etc while training at high lvl places. All the above mentioned have boost and combo and other skills like play dead and stuff.

Fire vulture (reset) - Once you get the pine forest spell, you wont even need to keep your pet alive cause the enemy will hardly get to touch you and your party at all. Other then going for pure raw power, you can go for average power with higher hit rate too. Pets that grow in dex with boost and combo work well in such cases. Examples will be like fire squid and fire vulture.


p/s: boost works better then burning blade even with my DG at 5x

Boss killing:
Fire tiger (reset) - Grows in str/str. Knows combo and boost. Throw in play dead. Do i need to say more? Bring out this killer whenever you need to deal insane damage to a single target. One of the reason why this pet cant be used for training is that of its low con. It dies too easily in a large mob battle. Against boss, play dead is good as it will prevent it from getting targeted. This crazy damage dealer is just what you need to take that kitty or what ever boss out there down.

Pking
Gem crawler (reset) - Combo to deal damge. Play dead to prevent your only dmg from dying. Vampirism to regain lost hp and at the same time damaging the opponent. Sacrifice to save you from dying. Desperate strike to deal insane amount of dmg. Perfect pking machine in every way.

Golden vulture (reset) - Grows in str/con/dex. There are a few reason why this pet is good for pking. It has good hit rate with average dex while dealing considerable amount of dmg with boost and combo. Play dead would prevent it from dying, in addition to the high con and hp it has. Vampirism can keep it alive too. One of the best reason that this pet is good for pking is its element. Both element used for armour pet are weak to this element, which would mean that this pet would deal good damage to the opponent no matter of the element that the person is using in his armour.

Fire pegasus (reset) - Str/dex/luck. High damage combined with high hit rate. And what is good is that it can learn good skills too. Skills like combo, play dead, molten and desperate strike. One of the best pking pet ever for a priest.

Mermaid patch
Fire tiger (reset) - Str/str/luck. High damage with average hit rate. Good skills like combo, play dead and boost. After getting pine forest, you can go for pure power. And pets like fire tiger, apolion and fire lizard would do just the job.

SKILLS (not work)

Bodyguard (DG)
A skill that you will learn as a priest at lvl 10. Its the most important skill to priest as you will need to level this skill to learn new spells. You can get to learn new spells at DG level 1, 5, 12, 24, 36, 40 and 45 for the pre-patch ones. And DG lvl 47, 49, 51, 53, 55, 57, 59, 61, 63 and 65 respectively for the post patch ones. Go to the temples located around fairyland respectively to learn spells of their element. The higher your DG lvl is, the better effect your spells will have too. So you should try to lvl your DG up even though you learned the final spell for the current patch already.

Magic Wand
Important for warrior/priests to raise this skill as it increases the physical damage done by your wand on enemies.

____________________________________________________________

SKILLS (work)

Support Priest
Get a work that require less weight as your maximum weight will not be alot. Works skills like farming and harvesting require less weight and will be easier for support priests to handle.

Warrior/Priest
Work skills that require more str like hunting and mining is not a big problem to hybrid priests as they add str to their stats. So they can get any type of skills they want and not worry too much about the weight limit.

Mermaid Patch
BM/Priest
Get a work that require less weight as your maximum weight will not be alot. Works skills like farming and harvesting require less weight and will be easier for BM/priests to handle.

PK Priest
Get a work that require less weight as your maximum weight will not be alot. Works skills like farming and harvesting require less weight and will be easier for support priests to handle.


NOTE:Try to get skills that will help you in the path of priests. Secondary skills like robe making and wand making are good for priests.

TIPS

Bodyguard
1-5-Cast healing spring over and over again and it will hit 5 in no time.
6-12-Cast burning blade over and over again and it will hit 12 in no time too.
13-24-Go to places with alot of mobs and cast whirl pool over and over again. DG will rise fast.
25-45-Cast pine grove over and over again to raise DG.
Mermaid Patch
46-49Cast pine forest over and over again to raise DG.
50-51Cast deadly flare over and over again to raise DG.
52-55Cast metal flash over and over again to raise DG.


Faith Points
Faith points from temples raise the effectiveness of their elemental spells. Priests have spells from each of the 5 elements, so which temple to pray in? Priests most important spells are silence, pine grove. And in the future patches, priests will get to summon wood god, so it is wise to get as much wood faith points as possible. Water faith points is good too as it can boost your healing spring.

Magic pet slot
Wood int pet helps wood spells like pine grove, pine forest, silence etc more then dark int pets. A support priest's main element would be wood and can consider training a wood int pet for the magic slot. However, if you want to be good in other areas like burning blade, boost blade etc, its better if you stick with a dark int pet.

____________________________________________________________

TRAINING
Just train at areas where the mobs are around your lvl. For an easier time, train at areas where the mob's element is weak against your pet's element.

PKING TACTICS

Priest is one of the most powerful pker out there if you have built your priest to be very strong. With all their debuff and prevention spells, they can practically take no damage from the opponent. However, they can still be vunerable to some tactics that other classes use. Here i will share with you all the tactics that i use for pking.

Against Warriors with higher dex then you
Use a water sheep in combat with sacrifice, tidal wave and transfer hp learnt.
If the warrior manages to one hit kill you, the sheep would 99% sacrifice for you with its high int.
Your 1st move should be pine forest anyway. After you casted that spell, you can proceed to kill the warrior in any way you like.
If he cant kill you in the 1st turn. Transfer hp and take your combat pet out. Then proceed to kill him/her anyway you like.

Against Diviners with paralyse or silence with higher dex then you
Use a Dream Ram in combat with sacrifice, silence and transfer hp learnt.
You should cast silence with both pet and char on the opponent on the 1st turn. Reasons are silence have less failure rate on diviners compared to pine forest.
If the diviner manages to paralyse/silence you on the 1st turn, your Dread Ram would be able to silence him for 5 turns. You should have broken free by the 5th turn. You should have high chance of surviving against the opponent's pet as the dread ram knows sacrifice and transfer hp. After paralysing/silencing the opponent, time to party!


Against anyone else with higher dex then you

Use a combat pet with combo, preferably with boost. If he manages to remove your pet in the 1st turn, pine forest him and take your pet out. Then proceed to kill him in any fashion you like.

Against anyone with lower dex then you
Use a combat pet with combo, preferably with boost. Pine forest him and kill him anyway you like.

OMG!!!!!!#$#%^&^ PRIESTS ARE SO OVERPOWERED
