According to the game it states that "Clerics may lose their powers if they defy the Three". Do you guys clerics will ever gain the opportunity to defy the Three? Perhaps join the forsaken?

If this could ever happen it would be nice if you can "lose" your holy powers and gain powers from the gods of the forsaken and master the "dark arts". Anyway, I don't this would ever happen in the game but realistically I believe that the cleric in question would just become a warrior and lose their levels. (EX: level 9 cleric to level 4 warrior).

Lastly a question for David, if the cleric loses their power would they just die or be killed by the Three before they could do anything mentioned above. So... would the cleric just become a troll?

Some time ago(like several months ago) there are actually a topic which derailed into talking about Clerics becoming fallen and what effects it would have. Was pretty fun, I even came up with an alternative list of skills.

But yes, technically speaking, making an entirely new class like that would be too much of a hassle for David. Maybe after 1.0.

Don't think of it like a class. Think of it like a "different type" of cleric much like how 2h warrior is to 1h warrior.

Realize we're still waiting for ver 0.9

There'll be bunch of chances to develop such things like dark sides of each class. Necromancer, Dark Knight, Dark Elf, and blah blah....

Just hope David would not give up.

Problem with such kind of thinking is that a fallen Cleric would have to have an entirely new set of skills. Most of Cleric's abilities focus on something connected to The Three, as in, they wouldn't have those abilities without their faith. Strip those away, and you're left with a Cleric who has 2-3 skills.

If Cleric turns to dark arts, it means new skills(some could be simple adjustments to fit the theme), new animations and a bunch of balancing. For example, Sacred Fire would make no sense, if used by a dark Cleric. If it can still be used, it's animation would have to be replaced.

That's why thinking of it as of a ''different type'' wouldn't work. There would be a lot of changes, which would result in an entirely new class, by itself.
