Acolytes are trained by the Disciples of Kael. They are a religious order that handles all personnel who serve the Holy Church. The Holy Church is the primary religion among many humans of Astaria. They worship Kael and are broken into different sects in order to handle different issues that arise. Acolytes start their training by serving within the Holy Church as mostly scribes. By reading the scriptures and copying them over, scribes become invigorated with Holy Magic. At the age of 17 and a fasting, the scribes are appointed to Acolytes. After a ceremony, they go on to serve the world as missionaries and healers. They go on to assist towns with performing sacred funeral rights as well. Acolytes are also trained in mostly defensive holy magic. Acolytes are permitted to defend themselves as they see fit with any weapon or offensive holy magic.
Acolytes utilize their support skills to grant Gospel stacks on friendly targets. Gospel provides a small defense increase to the target and allow the Acolyte to consume Gospel stacks off friendly players for powerful short buffs. A good acolyte will manage their mana very carefully during combat as to not run out when the fight is still going.
