Classes: The Cleric

Clerics -- the premier healer in the game. A popular class for any group, the cleric brings the ability to heal the party and keep you from dying, and can even bring you back from death at higher levels.

What is the best way to play a cleric? Can a cleric be soloed, and if so how? How should you play a cleric in a group? What spells are the best ones to buy and develop? what skills should a cleric concentrate on? What items should you seek out?

Post your strategies on how to best play and develop the Cleric and read, rate and comment on what others have to say.

Umm, I have an idea. How about a name... that sounds like a name, not a title?

It really would depend on your race, what I would think a good name is.

Most of the names you listed there probably would be blocked by the name filter.

If you really want to use a descriptive name, at least modify it some, to make it more namelike.

Lyeffe instead of life, perhaps.
Servo instead of saver (latin for save, btw)
or perhaps Mendicor (latin for to heal)
So instead of the relatively boring Life Saver name, you could be:

Lyeffe Mendicor

Just another way of looking at it :)

Bah! SNERT names = names for characters that are a discription or intended to make a pun or play on words. Also known as "Pickle Label" name, refering to putting a lable on your self so that all the rest of the SNERTs know who you are.

SNERT = arconym: old reference "Snot Nosed Egotistical Rotten Teenager". Current reference: "Snot Nosed Egotistical Rotten Teenager".

Some SNERT names are actually cute. Example the monk named "Recon". Other SNERT names should be banned from the game as inappropriate, or adult suggestive for minors, Example: "Pullr Knickersoff" ( pull her nickers off, nickers being another word for underpants. ) Such context is offensive.

Many player just won't group with some one who is using a silly or offensive SNERT name because it indicates ( usually ) a younger player that could be fairly good at playing the game, but is also unreliable. I learned that from both sides of the arugment: My SNERT named cleric who was equally equipped and geared as my culturedly Named cleric has a much harder time finding a really good group.

Note: give yourself a name that people can type and avoid the sticky key names.... Rrecon.. Recconn.... Reeconn... Ick! At lest try to be origional.

Of course my last name is Thorninfoot lol but i got that name LONG LONG LONG LONG LONG time ago....

My Cleric is Meddek Earthshine.

Meddek, obviously, a play on Medic.
Earthshine, from a Rush song, but sounded appropriate for a high elf.

Pick what you want!

You know, I wondered about that when I saw the SCA heraldry you used to have as an avatar.


Chirurgeon, the cry you never want to hear on the field or in the eric.

My new cleric is called Madmedic, nout fancy but everyone knows what I am and do.

I have just started this new cleric on a new server Stormm as I have been away from game for 3 years and do not want to touch my old cleric on AB who is called Asteron Lifegiver.

So you can call it any thing no one will mind, good luck.

I agree with Cherren. A character is far better off with a name than a label.

Sure, you can get by with one of those "pickle labels" as Cherren calls them, but understand that the rest of your group is probably snickering under their breath at you.

It doesn't take but a minute or two, to come up with some suitable name/surname, without having to rely on labels.

Chose a name that reflects your job in the group. That will help people know what you do at a glance. Helps with communication and knowing what classes are there right away.

Aaelarean Celestialhealer.

I know people hate trying to send me tells initially, but if you're a friend, you've got it down np. As far as the last name, believe it or not, I came up with it prior to the cleric spell celestial heal ever went live. I've thought about changing it several times, but I like it too much. Besides, I was first! Grrr!

My cleric's name is Candyana. This what the random name generator spit out. Easy to remember, easy to spell. I HATE names that are job descriptions, with a few exceptions. For example I have a ranger named Forrige Guhmp.

Mandie Mourningdew here. First name was actually from the random name generator. I was surprised it spit out an actual name, so I took it. I think surnames sound almost poetic if they start with the same letter as the first name, so I thought of Morningdew. But, being a cleric, I changed morning to mourning and hence, Mandie Mourningdew was born.

My cleric's name is Medicc Chugginale.... I chose the last name one night when I had a few to many to drink myself. I thought I'd RP my Dwarf and theme him as a drunk. Well... I started with the name. I have a 150ish ATolerance and I have an item that summons beer. I also love one of my weapons(though I haven't even used it in about 20 lvls) Dwarven bar room table leg.
Have some fun with your name. If it makes you laugh, chances are it will make someone else laugh too.

I like my name as it refers to my calling but as to how I do it also. "Soothetoucher Gentlehands" Makes the medicine go down easier?? First name plays two ways "Soo the Toucher" (implications abounding ...lol but really is a play on my RL first name Sue) and Soothe Toucher. Only problem I have now is that I took up blacksmithing and my title could eventually be "Master Smith Gentlehands, hmmmm...somehow doesn't go together. LOL

Rnmayhem here
I just started playing a cleric (lvl 10 fennin ro)and have read afew of the posts here. I choose my name because that is what I am and what I do. I work in an emergency department and there is always mayham there. I come here to relax and am finding being a cleric is challenging and rewarding. I am looking forward to learning more about my abilities and hoping to be a good team player but most of all. I am here for FUN.
Mezz Pick what ever name you LIKE the best and if you want to make it funny then fine. This is the only time we get to pick our names. I had a friend whos name was Withoutaname withoutasurname. we thought it was the funniest thing. Good luck on your name friend and hope to see ya in game.

My cleric's name is Kimbera, based off an AD&D character I was playing when I started the character at the end of 1999.

The AD&D character's surname was "Dawnlight", as she was a cleric of Lathander in the Forgotten Realms. I still haven't found a surname in EQ I want to commit to.

My cleric's name is Menddar (lvl 70). I think simple and straight forward names helps against confusion ... mostly. Although, I have been told that some thought I was a Monk based on the name (even when looking right at me ... lol. Monkeys just wish they could wear plate w/o penalty)

A lot of great names here! My clerics name is Ayekinheelya Buffortheykillya. I know what some of you would think, but I like it!

I've mulled it over and I've decided that if I had a male cleric, his name would be Medward.
