Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.

Creates a field of holy energy around the priest, Burning any vessels in the vicinity and regenerating a modest amount of Endurance for allies. The power of a priest's Holy Radiance is modified by how well his or her Reputations align with the preferred behaviors of his or her faith.

Lastly, Holy Radiance can be also upgraded by learning Brilliant Radiance, a priest talent:

  • Foe AoE: 8-12 Burn damage

Bonuses[]

The damage and healing given by Holy Radiance are scaled by the Watcher's dispositions and level, while for all other NPCs (including priest companions such as Durance), it is only affected by level.

  • Every 3 character levels above level 1 (4, 7, 10, etc.) grants a bonus +5 Endurance and +10 Burn damage.
  • (Watcher only) A multiplier is then applied based on the ranks in the priest deity's favoured and condemned dispositions. See Disposition for more info.

Each rank in favoured dispositions gives a +0.2/+20% modifier, while ranks in the opposed dispositions give a -0.2/-20% modifier (caps at ±60% per Disposition). The modifier is calculated additively.

In the following table, ranks in the two condemned dispositions can be represented with a negative number (-1 for rank 1), and the ranks in the two favoured dispositions can be represented with a positive number (3 for rank 3). Only ranks up to 3 are used - rank 4 is simply treated as 3. Adding all four values together will produce a result from -6 (worst) to +6 (best).

Take for example, the disposition ranks of a Priest of Eothas:

The total rank would be +3 (3 + 1 + -1 + 0), and resulting multiplier would be +60%.

The exact progression is shown in the tables.
