    Default no swords?

    Why can't clerics use swords?

    This probably harkens back to older games, and even older religions, where their clerics were not permitted to spill blood, so they never used bladed weaponry. Yes, you CAN spill blood with a blunt weapon, but not with the same ease as a bladed weapon.

    I think if the fix the Templar tree they should add this to the offensive side.

    A Cleric w/o a sword makes sense, kind of.

    A TEMPLAR w/o a sword is just a sad panda. =(

    Because itemization balance.

    We'd be competing against mages for caster swords. What then? Allow mages to use maces? Then neither class would have a unique caster-weapon solely for them.

    Rift Cleric is aesthetically close to the ye olden image of DnD Cleric. Thus Chainmail and maces.

    whats wrong with maces?
    A Justicar's path is not one of ease. But, hey, we do get to hit stuff.

    I have seen nice daggers that are good for clerics, +WIS and +Spell Power.
    I live my life with bold enthusiasm tempered by the hope that when I die it won't be reported in News of the Weird or the Darwin Awards.
