Stats

The player starts off at level 1. Every time the Priest levels up, stat boosts are gained.
What differs the Priest from other classes is the high HP regen per level, double that of any other class.
This can be further doubled with the Chapel blessing, and doubled again with Remedy, leading to extremely high HP regen
However the Priest cannot directly heal himself, he must use Consecrated Ground to self-heal.

To get stats at a given level, use the equation "X = Scaling * (Level-1) + Level_1_Stats"
