Clerics can use miracles to heal, due to their high starting Faith stat and equipped Talisman. They also start with a strong melee weapon in the form of the Mace, but little in the way of defense. Clerics are well suited to heavier weapon types, such as Hammers, as taking on enemies directly with slower weapons is offset by their ability to heal more often than other classes.
Joining the Warriors of Sunlight can allow Clerics to become powerful magical attackers early on in the game, giving them the miracle Lightning Spear. Astora's Straight Sword and Dragon Crest Shield are also very useful early game pick-ups for the Cleric, provided they choose the Master Key as their gift and enter Valley of Drakes via New Londo Ruins. The former scales with Faith, allowing the Cleric to focus exclusively on it, while the latter is a far better shield than that which the Cleric starts with.
