The Cleric specializes in restorative and defensive spells --Description in Dragon Quest VII

The Priest, Pilgrim or Cleric is a class in the Dragon Quest series. Priests specialize in healing and fortifying spells rather than attack magic, and are some of the only characters who can learn to revive characters while in the field. Priests cannot equip heavy armor, but they can use weapons much like a Hero or a Warrior can. Priests do have initially more strength, agility and vitality than Wizards, but on the whole, their physical combat potential is unimpressive at best.

One of the first classes that any player should choose for any party member is the Cleric class. All of the spells that the Cleric learns are useful throughout the game. The only downside to this class is that the class takes a long time to master.

Dragon Quest IX

The priest vocation is available at the start of the game and has the unique skillset "Faith". Priests can also use skill points to learn Spear, Wand, Staff, and Shield skills. Their Coup-de-Grace is "Choir of Angels," which heals all party members and removes negative status effects.
