Skill Effect
Renewal At the start of each turn, recover 30% of the user’s HP
Countermagic If the enemy initiates battle and inflicts magical damage, the enemy will receive the same amount of damage.

The Priestess is exactly identical to its female counterpart, Great Master, learning the exact same skills and having slight differences in growth rates (slightly lower Strength, slightly higher Magic, higher Resistance and lower Defense, everything else is the same). Yumi has some disadvantages as opposed to Naginata to wield, given that a healer attacking from range can be covered easily by an Onmyoji.

Still, just as before, the Priestess is a good class to swing through because Renewal and Countermagic are amazing skills. The Priestess/Great Master class is also fairly rare since only Shrine Maidens or Monks have access to it, making aforementioned skills great to pass down to children.
