    From ms1:

    1) Priests are easy to play
    2) You choose a class you know you will have a low dps at (unlike some classes where you discover it later and get disappointed)
    3) You save money on hp potions
    4) You make a lot of money since you don't need anything
    5) It's fun to make a second char with high dps afterward (who makes a high dps char and then priest?)

    I was a cleric in Maple 1 back in the day, waaaaay back in the day. It was fun to bounce around while everyone was fighting to heal'em so they could keep fighting and not worry about dying. I've always enjoyed supporter classes because even the biggest, baddest knight is going to need someone to have their back and keep them alive. Really excited to explore the priest class and see how it works in Maple 2. I know a lot of other people are going to main a priest, but I hope whichever channel/server I end up in, I gain some renown and not just another (insert name of) priest for a party quest or boss run.

    I'm going to play priest because I like being yelled at by my teammates I guess.

    The main reason I typically play healers/support sorts is because I like getting to interact with people; it's fun hopping around and being able to help, but it's also fun to get to know and interact with other people.

    I actually have never played Priest in the original MapleStory, but in every other MMO and RPG I'm usually one, so I wanted to try it out this time :D
    Plus, I really wish to know people and get into a guild this time around.

    Because I like to play as support and it’s a good way to know new ppl since pretty much everyone need a healer at some point xD

    I play supports / healers because it's nice to be appreciated by those in needs :-) You can recognize a good player when he notice a good support in his party and not being like - Im the highest dps, Im the boss! :-)

    All the lives depend on my actions. If people don't want to cooperate, I get to choose to end their lives.

    In all seriousness though, I find myself maining support in every type of games because I like healing/buffing myself and others, staying out of range, and feeling helpful.

    personally I want to play priest because I like to help out people and make them feel safe

    and also I have an unhealthy obsession with overbuffing people
    I need assistance with that

    It all started when I was new to online games and was playing with a friend who recommended me to go warrior. Playing with him he told me we needed a healer/cleric/whatever-the-name to continue our journey and got to know a person who was really really good at healing, she was extremely loved by her friends and couldn't even land a blow on the lowest mob around. It was hilarious but her attitude and decision hit me hard and got me thinking that I wanted to be like her!

    Not exactly like her, so I usually got some warrior skills to support me when doing some solo quests and all, but since then I started doing the supportive character, even in a MOBA and not only in MMOs in general.
    Thanks to this I even got to know I really don't like fighting in the front lines as usually I'm below average of what you expect of someone dealing damage and all and I don't want to disappoint anyone, so...

    I like the appreciation that comes from being a healer, and I enjoy the thrills that come from lacking most conventional protections. Additionally, I find that playing a healer makes me more observant, as I have to constantly monitor the area, mobs, and party members around me to stay alive and be useful. Plus, I find that I suck at DPS most of the time, so I stick to something I can't screw up as hard.

    Being a healer in MS1 was always nice, both due to how fast you could get party quest invites and they're still half decent attackers if you're playing solo.

    Being a healer as always been my thing, nothing else drawn me to a class unless it was healer.
    Well I lied, Archer classes always make me warm too.
