Notes
A powerful “tome” that compromises stronger healing and defense for a large attack boost. 3 uses of this tome will raise a Priest’s attack by 35 due to how stat buffs stack, and the hit to defense is usually negligible due to the short duration. Priests can essentially keep up a constant attack buff for a significant DPS increase with little drawback, making this one of the best offensive tomes.

One may be tempted to juggle this tome’s effects with the Tome of Holy Furor, but in practice the duration of having both effects up isn’t efficient or long enough to matter comparatively to using one or the other.
