Good religious background

This background offers several front-line and back-row guilds, including the healer guild.

Ghost Liberators

RoleMelee, focused on offense and defense
DescriptionMelee guild that liberates ghosts from evil mobs and uses their various skills. Usually the best choice for a tank guild in the good religious background. Ghosts provide a good variety of utility skills. Not very strong on its own, requires Animist levels to function fully. Provides some healing and protective spells.
WeaponsLong blades
Important skillsGhost slash, Holy seance, Ghost affinity
Important spellsGhost armour, Ghost link, Ghost companion
Rep/questsGuild missions in spiritworld give temporary bonuses and are needed for some quests. Liberating ghosts and completing guild quests allows training Daunting presence and provides boon points that can substantially improve some skills. Guild quests also give +10 hpmax per.
Other considerationsPrevents joining Nuns. Offensive skills work best against evil mobs, and suck against good-aligned ones. Highly recommended to take Animist levels too. Liberating ghosts cannot be turned off, preventing soul gathering skills of evil religious and lich party members from working.

RoleBlaster, protter
DescriptionNuns are a blaster guild with some protective and healing spells. Blasts only work against evil and undead mobs, They are one of the most complex guilds in the game, and are not recommended for newer players. INT and WIS are the required stats.
Important skillsCast/mastery skills
Important spellsBlasts/heals
Rep/questsCompleting guild tasks is required to be able to train most skills/spells - most of these require a party. Tasks also give +int/wis/spr. Killing evil mobs gives purity that improves various spells. Several other types of tasks are also available and required by various guild features.
Other considerationsNun blasts only work against evil-aligned or undead mobs, and do nothing at all against neutral or good ones - because of this, it is recommended to have a second guild (usually tarmalen or druid) to fall back on. You need to have an invitation from a member of the guild Synod to join this guild. Reputation is partially lost if reincing out prior to achieving elder status.
