Why would anybody play a class with a super gimped Cleric spell list in a game where CLW wands exist and in-combat healing has little point until heal is available?

Shield Other is one of the most important spells for a healer, especially if they use channel.


D&D 3.5 had a healer class with a spell list, you might want to look that up.

Note that that class did suck, for reasons Gorbag mentions and others.


Healing isn't as bad as some make it out to be, but it is indeed pretty niche. Need for healing in a party is based on a number of factors like party size and optimization. A small party of unoptimized characters will frequently need a healer, while a large party of optimized characters will almost never need a healer. Other factors can include group play style and the style of the GM.

In the words of The Simpsons, 'Comic book guy'.....

"Worst Pathfinder class ever."


I remember the 3.5 version, in fact it would make a decent NPC class. My version has better class abilities that make up for it's specialized spell list. Though remember every spell added to it's spell list, is also added to it's spells known.

Yeah, shield other would fit as well.

Too bad there are few spells for 8th and 9th level that fit this class.

What about the spells that I am thinking of adding, do think they fit?

Would you add the create demi plane spells?


There already is a healer class in Pathfinder...

Are we giving 9th level spellcasting to the Soulthief Vitalist?

I'll advocate Serenity from your list of considerations, too.

Either use life oracle or vitalist


Oops remove paralysis was on my written list. Purify body-4th(healer's handbook) is a good one, suppress charms and compulsions-2nd(adventurers guide), hymn of peace-7th(champions of purity), inspiring recovery-6th(healer's handbook), and untold wonder-5th(heroes of the fringe).
