This page is about the Ascendancy class. For the Ascendant passive skill, see Hierophant (Ascendant passive).

The Hierophant is an Ascendancy class for Templars.

Overview

The Hierophant offers a mixture of non-conventional sources of damage, defenses, and overall utility aimed towards spell users, particularly spell casting totems and brands. They can utilize a large mana pool effectively by converting it to offensive and defensive bonuses while also conserving and regenerating it. They can also utilize Arcane Surge with large bonuses to spellcasters attached to it, as well as stacking endurance and power charges. They also generally use the Mana before Life defensive technique.
