Introduction

The Discipline Priest is all about balance between light and dark. Using shadow to harm enemies while at the same time using light to renew and protect friends.

Inspiration

I am a fan of Warcraft and have wanted to run a World of Warcraft themed game for a long time. While that is still in the making, I thought I'd work up some of my favorite classes to play starting with my main - the Discipline Priest.

Settings

Because this character archetype is simply a devoted priest, it can fit in anywhere you have a devoted worshiper, a fanatic cult member or simply someone who worships the idea of balance and karma.

Character Build

In Warcraft, for me, the Discipline Priest is all about balance between light and dark. Because this is a level 1 build, I focused on giving strong offense while maintaining the ability to heal and leaving room to grow into more Creation or adding in Movement or Protection (in case you want something like Fade, Leap of Faith, Power Word: Shield, etc).

My hope is that this is a playable build and able to go right out of the gate.

Alternate Options

The Discipline Priest can focus on Creation, Entropy or grow into Movement or Protection depending on what the player character wants to focus on. To start at Level 1, you can swap out Boon Focus for Bane Focus and change out Multi Target Boon for Multi Target Attack Specialist to make a more offense oriented priest - Or change the feats out altogether to focus on protection.

Attributes

I started by making this priest a little weak (as in Warcraft they often need to be protected), but gave them high Willpower. After all, when you mess with the hearts and minds of others, it's often because you know your own. I added basic Perception and some Learning. It can be of any type, but perhaps most focused on Religion (obviously). Finally this is rounded out with Creation and Entropy so they can wield the light and the dark as they desire.
