The devoted cleric is a  righteous healer committed to preventing injury and restoring health. The cleric is also capable of manipulating the battlefield with a combination of area control and holy damage. On the offense, a devoted cleric builds divine power by dealing damage to unruly enemies. Once enough divine power is gained, a cleric can channel it to enhance the effects of their powers. Here are just a few of the many powers a devoted cleric can attain. Lance of fate; the devoted cleric’s main attack. By hitting the left mouse button, the cleric hurls spheres of light at targeted enemies, dealing moderate damage. The clerics alternate ability is astral seal. Press the right mouse button to unleash a quick burst of light that encases foes and stores the team’s health when attacking those spell-bound enemies. Hitting tab will channel divinity, replacing the cleric’s left and right-click abilities with punishing light and soothing light, respectively. Punishing light creates a damaging stream of power.

Soothing light is a healing magic that restores health to the both cleric and any ally the cleric targets. One of the first encounter abilities a devoted cleric will learn is daunting light, an area of effect spell that casts down a divine column of light dealing large amounts of damage to enemies. If used with divine power, daunting light casts quicker and affects a larger area. Hollowed ground is one of the first daily powers a devoted cleric receives. The cleric sanctifies a large area which becomes an instant buff to allies, allowing them to take less damage while increasing their damage output.

The guardian fighter is a heavily armored melee class that focuses on absorbing massive amounts of damage. The key key to success is knowing how to block and when to time the fighter’s abilities based on what an opponent is doing. The fighter could obtain dozens of different skills. These are just a few that are available at earlier levels. The guardian fighter’s most basic attack is cleave, which is mapped to the left mouse button. If positioned well, a guardian fighter can use cleave to hit several enemies in a wide arc. An alternate basic attack for the guardian fighter is tide of iron. Click the right mouse button to shield slam a target and weaken them for further attacks. Holding the shift key puts the fighter into guard mode, a defensive stance which minimizes damage from incoming attacks and nullifies control effects like stun and numb.

Lunging strike is the first encounter type ability that guardian fighters receive. With a fairly short cool-down, lunging strike is the perfect way to close the gap to an enemy. It’s also useful as an intercept if an enemy’s targeting a party’s cleric. Terrifying impact is the first daily power the guardian fighter can access. The fighter slams his sword into the ground, creating a massive fissure that ripples forward. This powerful ability is also a great way to set up the casters in a party. For example, knocking down a group of enemies with terrifying impact will ensure that a wizard’s area of affects spell does maximum damage. With powerful abilities on both offense and defense, the guardian fighter is an essential member of any party of adventurers in Neverwinter.
