Cleric (聖職者 (クレリック) ) is a job class that hailed originally from YGGDRASIL. The religious role and principle of clerics seem to apparently differ among human nations in the New World.


Like Priests, Clerics worshiped a certain God and would used magic in their name. For instance, they recite verbal incantations when utilizing their magic spells. For that reason, they and the priests are usually the ones who calls upon God’s miracles through the use of divine magic.[1]

Clerics such as Roberdyck Goltron are also given a part-time job in places that require their healing magic.[2]

Abilities and Powers

By YGGDRASIL standard, Cleric is a faith-based class. Clerics are looked upon as a magic caster of the Divine type. While they are well versed in melee combat, Clerics can also cast various magics such as healing, summoning, and attack spells. In particular, they are capable of curing diseases or neutralizing poisons.[3]

Commonly, Clerics tend to hold up a holy symbol necklace they wear around their neck to begin the casting of a divine spell on the frontliners in their team. Although the exact composition varied between jobs, most clerics could use divine power to turn, rebuke or destroy creatures such as undead, demons, angels, and the like. However, these abilities only worked on monsters weaker than themselves.[4]

While just banishing them was hard enough, with a sufficient disparity in power levels, a cleric could not only turn such monsters but outright destroy them. However, doing so to many monsters at once was an arduous task.[5] To get rid of this much in large numbers required a matching amount of strength. At the same time, repelling them has a limit as it can only be done under a certain number of times per day.[6]
