Priests lack in physical attack capabilities, but they are most prominent in healing and support artes to support their allies in the heat of battle. Priests in certain games are the only job to typically learn Light-elemental attack spells. Their ability to heal, protect, and resurrect fallen members of the party make them typically invaluable, as they are usually the only efficient way of healing. The Priest job in most games require equipment such as staves and rods. Their armor, like most magic-based jobs, include dresses and robes. Standard artes usually associated with the Priest class include First Aid, Barrier, and Holy Lance.
Tales of Phantasia: Narikiri Dungeon
In Tales of Phantasia: Narikiri Dungeon, there are three healing-focused costumes: the "Healer" and "Cleric" costumes available to both Mell and Dio, and the "Priestess" costume available to Mell only.
Tales of the World: Narikiri Dungeon 2
In Tales of the World: Narikiri Dungeon 2, the Clerics are a series of costumes for both Julio Sven and Caro Orange. To obtain a Cleric requires giving a costume the Scriptures (きょうてん Kyouten?) root item to get the Cleric of the same element. Mint Adenade's and Philia Felice's costumes are based on the Cleric.
The variations are:
Physical: Cleric (クレリック Kurerikku?) Fire: Kitoushi (きとうし 「祈祷師」?, "Shaman") Wind: Junreisha (じゅんれいしゃ 「巡礼者」?, "Pilgrim") Water: Priest (プリースト Puriisuto?)
Priestess (プリーステス Puriisutesu?)
Earth: Druid (ドルイド Doruido?) Lightning: Mystic (ミスティック Misutikku?) Light: Yogensha (よげんしゃ 「預言者」?, "Prophet") Dark: Hakaisou (はかいそう 「破戒僧」?, "Depraved Monk") Elemental: Bishop (ビショップ Bishoppu?)
Tales of the World: Narikiri Dungeon 3
The process of costume synthesis is greatly streamlined in Tales of the World: Narikiri Dungeon 3, merging all iterations of the Cleric costume into a single unit consisting of only two gender variants. To obtain the Cleric costumes, both Julio and Caro must combine their respective Costume Artist (なりきりし Narikirishi?) costumes with the root Scriptures (きょうてん Kyouten?). Mint and Loni Dunamis both have their costumes based off the Cleric.
