Indeed, if this is just my personal taste and that taste is rather unlike that of others, I can just tweak my install. The point of mentioning is that typically people aren't unique.

Priests feel to me like grudging meelee fighters. Sure, anyone can do it when they have god-tier kit, but in the early game, they're kinda crap at it.

Still, you can make it work, and you'd...
