The priest is one of the strongest and most versatile classes in the game. There are many different ways to play the priest class, from playing it safe with Holy Nova and Avene to going all out with Power Word: Sacrifice, Flash of Light, and Acid Storm. With so many options available, it can be difficult for new priests to know where to begin. In this article, we’ll take a look at the top 5 tech priest ranks for September 2017. These ranks are based on summoner opinion and personal experience with each of them, as opposed toKarazhan’s official ranking system. They are not absolute rankings but instead guidelines that you can use as a reference when considering new priest ranks or reducing your own prestige. The priest is a powerful class that has been around since 2006, so there is a lot of precedent for these lists—but remember, they aren’t set in stone!
