The Jacoban Priest is the priest of the Jacoban faith and one of the ten classes of hero in The Sims Medieval. The Jacoban Priest class is unlocked once the kingdom has built the awe-inspiring Cathedral, which is led by the priest and is where he or she lives. Being the head of the cathedral, Jacoban priests begin the game automatically acquainted with an attendant.
Jacoban priests can schedule sermons, their main form of income. Because the Jacoban doctrine is centered on fear, these sermons rely on intensity to shake the audience into submission. If done well, the priest will earn money in the form of donations.
While at the pulpit, Jacoban priests can also absolve Jacoban Sims of sins, earning them experience and comforting the Sims by giving them The Watcher's Absolution for +10 Focus for 9 hours. Absolving apparently costs the Sims §50, though this money goes directly into the Jacoban Church's coffers instead of the absolving priest's pocket.
Jacoban priests can use the Watcher's Touch ability by sacrificing some of their Energy. The subject of the touch receives the Protection Of The Watcher buff, granting them +10 Focus for an entire day which also reduces severity of injuries by one level.
Instead of praying, Jacoban priests focus themselves by reflecting on the Watcher. Reflecting for 30 minutes will give them the Watcher's Gaze buff for 1 hour. This buff increases focus by 20. Every 30 minutes your priest continues to reflect on the Watcher, another hour is added to the buff's duration, up to a maximum of 12 hours. No matter how much time your hero has on the buff, they can sacrifice it by using it to bestow the Watcher's Blessing on another Sim. The Watcher's Blessing erases and prevents negative buffs from the sim like injuries, diseases and fatigue.
Jacoban priests can temporarily consecrate the water in wells, granting an hour long +10 focus to anyone who drinks from it.
Jacoban priests don't write with the Watcher or evangelize in informal public sermons like Peteran priests, but can nail various proclamations to the proclamation board outside the cathedral to alter the level of fear and change the behavior of Jacobans.
