Time for more character class info for the upcoming arcade double-pack Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara. Last time, we looked at the melee-focused Fighter class. If you missed it, you can check it out here .

For players that like to have their cake and eat it too, we have the Cleric. This well-rounded class combines brute strength with powerful magic, making him a popular choice for the indecisive and beginners alike. The Cleric’s primary weapon, a mace, can be used to bludgeon enemies into a dizzy state, while clever spells like “Sticks to Snakes” even the odds by summoning slithery allies out of ordinary twigs!

On top of that, Clerics have the ability to infinitely cast “Turn Undead,” a spell which instantly destroys all on-screen undead enemies—a drastic game changer. They can even strengthen attacks with the Striking spell and use other magic to heal themselves and their allies.

The trade-off for all these abilities is that the Cleric is one of the least agile classes in the D&D games, and his attack power is only average. Nevertheless, Clerics make a great asset to any team. You might even recruit two.

Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara is due out this June on PSN, Xbox LIVE, Wii U e-Shop, and PC for $14.99. Stay tuned into Unity every week for more info!
