The Dark Priest is an advanced class in Heroes of Might and Magic IV, based on Life magic and Death magic. A Dark Priest hero gains Vampirism: for every 2 HP of Damage inflicted to the enemy in close combat, 1 HP is recovered.
The Dark Priest is most likely to learn Life magic and Death magic and fairly likely to learn the Order magic, Chaos magic and Nature magic skills. Non-magic skills can also be learned when leveling up, but have less chance of appearing for selection.
A good hero can regain health as quickly as the enemy creatures are taking it away.
