On ADOH, Cleric has the following differences from the vanilla (base game) one:
Clerics gain access to Great Charisma as a Cleric Bonus Feat.
Cleric Domains have been heavily adjusted trying to give some more balance and use cases. Many spells have been added to each domain from Druid and Wizard/Sorcerer spell books, trying to make each domain unique.
- Cleric domains special abilities cannot be dispelled
- Domains like Air, Earth, Fire, Water, when using Summon Creature, if that elemental is the elemental of the domain, the creature will receive full UNIQUE buffs (not nerfed like for the Animal domain, which gives the bonus to all summons regardless). Check out our Custom Summons for more information
- Cleric Domain Spells are now compatible with the Rod of Fast Cast
- Special Domain Abilities have been improved too. They are listed under the Feats category
A 40 level (PURE) Cleric gain the High Priest feat.
Some Spells have been changed. Check out our Custom Spell System for more information.

Cleric Class Tips #
- 25 levels of cleric will make your buff spells immune to being dispelled with lesser dispel, dispel magic, greater dispelling. If you wish to make use of buff spells this is a recommended minimum caster level.
- A character with 15 levels of the Cleric class will have access to special Balms, which drastically lowers the penalty for ressing someone.
