Acolytes are thoughtful protectors and healers of all that is good in Rune Midgarts. Though they are still new to holy magic, Heal, Blessing, and Increase AGI skills are vital to turning the tide of the battle. Growing up in the Capital City of Prontera, they learned how their skills could protect fellow adventurers from evil.

Acolytes cannot equip bladed weapons, but their dedication to all that is good allows them to fully support others in all situations. They can be solid tanks given the right attribute and armor.

Quest Reward(s): Jobchange to Acolyte

1. Go to the Prontera Church pront234314 in the northeastern corner of Prontera. Go to the room on the right-hand side and talk to Father Mareusis. He will ask you to go meet one of the following NPCs:

  • Note: Once you talk to the Ascetic, you will automatically be saved at their location. If you die or use a Butterfly Wing, you will return to the Ascetic's spot instead of your previous save point.

2a. Mother Marthilda in Morroc: With the Episode 12 patch, this is no longer an easy NPC to reach. The easiest way to get to this Ascetic is to use the Kafra teleport service to go to Morroc and head north. You will then be on Sograt Desert 07. Mother Marthilda is located in the northwestern corner of the map moc_fild0741355. To return to Prontera and use the Kafra teleport service again.

2b. Father Yosuke in East Geffen: Use the Kafra teleport service to warp to Geffen and walk 2 maps to the east to locate Father Yosuke on Prontera Field 00. It is also possible to reach him by traveling 1 map west, 1 map north, and 1 map west from Prontera. Father Yosuke is located in the center of the map prt_fild00208218.

2c. Father Rubalkabara in East Prontera: Father Rubalkabara is on Prontera Field 03 to the east of Prontera. He is located in the northeastern corner prt_fild03365259. This quest is actually one of the hardest of the three choices due to the Mandragoras on Prontera Field 02 you must pass through.

3. Return to the Priest at the Church to change into an Acolyte.


See Priest Builds or Monk Builds for build strategies.

  • Learn Battle Mode before turning Priest. The Acolyte skills probably won't fill up more than one hotkey bar, but just getting used to battle mode's quirks will make the transition to Priest much easier. Mastering Pneuma will save your party's EXP.


Class Data


See Priest Skills or Monk Skills for second class skills.
See Skill Reset for information about skill resets.

Note that not all of these skills are a requirement for all Acolytes, some people have different playing styles, but almost all of them are used as other Acolyte skill prerequisites, Priest skill prerequisites, or are just extremely useful.

Two skills that no two Acolytes turning Priest will ever agree on are Cure and Decrease AGI. One should do their research before choosing to get or not get either, as both options have pros and cons. If the Acolyte doesn't get Cure or Decrease AGI then they'll be putting those points into Angelus.
