The Cleric is one of the eight character classes in Might and Magic VIII: Day of the Destroyer.

"Clerics are adventuring spell casting holy men. Before they leave the sanctity of their orders, Clerics learn basic fighting skills and a smattering of useful healing spells. The Cleric class is the one best at casting Spirit, Body and Mind magic, and is the only class capable of using the extremely powerful Light magic. They are fair fighters, but are limited to the lighter armors and can only melee with blunt weapons."

Clerics start with 30 hit points and 15 spell points, and gain 2 hit points and 3 spell points per level. They also start with 5 spirit resistance.
