Lightbulb [Suggestion] Priest Class Weapon

Right now I'm playing a high-elf priest, and wielding Narthanc (I got super lucky and got it really early and at 100'). But because priests prefer blunt weapons, I keep getting the 'not comfortable with weapon' message when I equip it.

My suggestion is to make a priest class dagger. (Wait... are blessed ego items still a thing in this game? If so, forget this suggestion.) Or else make a new class of dark priests that can use daggers. Like call it a ceremonial dagger or some such. Silver daggers should be made to be more effective against specifically canines (werewolves & wargs especially.), maybe dropped by Cerberus or whatever that can summon/call other canines?

Blessed egos still exist, and many edged artifacts are blessed. The edged weapon penalty is still kinda dumb though. Oh well.

In the current development version priests get no penalty for wielding sharp weapons, but do get small to-hit and to-dam bonuses for wielding blunt or blessed weapons.

I can recall many debates during D&D over the irony that a Priest would only use weapons which would crush and maim painfully rather than kill you clean. That said it was one way to balance them so that the basic meat-shield Fighter stays competitive.

Now how about a twix that allows the new Necromancer to ignore or invert -HIT/-DAM on cursed weapons?
