Bishop (or Cardinal) is one of the three healer classes, and also considered to be the best healer in Lineage II.

Bishop is the only class which gets the uber healing spells Greater Battle Heal and Restore Life, and they get the powerful Mass Resurrection. They also can solo undead non-group mobs quite easily.

Equipment/Playstyle[edit]

Bishops get the skill to wear both robes and light armor. Like all clerical classes, they get a generic weapon skill that allows to use all weapons equally well. While battling undead with their spells, they will prefer weapons with high matk. Otherwise, they have little use for it. Still wizard weapons are a good choice for bishops on high levels as they can have special abilities like Mana Up or Acumen.
