General Weapon Overview[]

  • The Warrior Priest is completely restricted to melee which leaves them especially weak to ranged Specials like Warpfire Throwers, Ratling Gunners, and Lifeleeches.
  • The Flail and Shield are a reliable anti-horde weapon, as Its charged attack not only has a wide spread and cleave but also comes with the Ignore Shields attribute, meaning that attacks against enemies like shielded stormvermin will not stop your attacks mid-swing.
  • Skull-Splitter and Blessed Tome's second charged attack has an unlimited cleave AOE if the book is fully charged before swinging.


While the 5th, 10th, and 15th levels are relatively basic skills that buff the individual, the 20th, 25th, and 30th level skills have much more team orientated talents. The level 20 skill From Fury, Fortitude grants your team a source of healing while Smite is active, while at the 25th level all three options are flat group-wide buffs. Finally at level 30 the Warrior Priest's Career Skill is amplified, greatly increasing its utility and and maximizing the Priest's support potential.

  • The Skull-Splitter and Blessed Tome can be charged without needing to endure the slowness penalty of charging your weapon by using the special attack button, which only charges the book while not preparing a swing with the hammer. This method can be used move faster than base speed by charging the book, doing a charged attack, and repeating.


Since the Warrior Priest has 100% curse resistance as a passive ability, having a trinket with curse resistance will bring your total curse resistance to above 100%. This means that being affected by a curse, such as through a grimoire, will actually increase your maximum health. This is likely an unintentional bug and may be patched out in the future.
