+1. Even after giving them the DoT, prelates seem pretty vanilla. Make them do something cool.

Fuck that, that power should have been meant for Crusaders.

Never had the good fortune to play a prelate before that power was removed, but if the stories are true, I would be giddy as a school girl to see it returned!

And think of all the role-playing opportunities it provides!

That power was kind of silly. I agree they are very vanilla, but I'd like to see them get a more unique gimmick than their own "Wrath of the Seraphim".

Here's my totally oddball suggestion:

Give them 7 new powers. Training of any one will result in the others being untrainable (you can only have one). The powers are themed after an Archon. This is lore-friendly and opens a new world of prelate versatility:

Cunning of Dangiriel: Personal Attack and Piercing Resistance Buff
Hedrusiel's Strength: Short-duration stacking strength, dexterity, and stamina recovery buff
Memory of Loromir: Single target stun and invulnerability
Nandramiel's Stride: Personal run speed buff (like pathfinding)
Teluranel's Mercy: Ranged Area of Effect healing (does not discriminate group/nation)
Uvoriel's Wrath: Area of Effect persistent holy damage over time
Corruption of Volmiriel: Single target stamina drain and stamina recovery debuff

This gives them flavored abilities that will aid solo, bane, holy spec, or mine fights. They have to anticipate what power they will need for each fight, so the skill ceiling is somewhat preserved.

Wrath of the Seraphim is a heretical perversion of the "True and Original" Archon Transform. All those Confessors and Templars should be rounded up by the Church of the All Father and put to the sword. That is why they were excommunicated.

Continuously putting them to the sword after the shattering has grown a bit tiresome as they keep respawning at Tree's of life under control of the Burning Temple. We need to find a more permanent solution.

RIGHT?! The Holy Church rules and the Burning Temple droolz!

Also I really like your idea Rewen, I'm a big fan of SB's lore, and I would definitely find some of those powers useful, though getting them to implement a change of that magnitude any time soon =/

Go back to your crumbling cathedrals, Elf-monger. You'll get your turn with the flames soon enough.

friendly fire kick-back is exactly the same as it has been for about a year.


People, all of this is in your head.
