Shaman is another supportive unit in the game, and its skills are mostly about party-wide buffs. Ruinous Prayer gives a physical/magical attack buff, Aegis Prayer gives a physical/magical defense buff, Focus Prayer gives accuracy buff, and Blaze Prayer, Hail Prayer, and Bolt Prayer imbue fire, ice, or volt element to party's weapons and increase resistance to that element, respectively. Gospel passively heals party members when any Prayer Skill is used. Prayer Mastery increases the speed of prayer skills and reduces their TP cost. It also has 2 skills to dispel own Prayer buffs. Heaven's Gift can be used if you want a certain party member to act first before the others (with bonus heal), and Dance Oracle dispels Blaze Prayer, Hail Prayer, or Bolt Prayer (only from the shaman) to deal damage to a single enemy and amplify all damage of the same element to that enemy for 1 turn.

Shaman can fit into any team, but as a supportive unit Shaman shouldn't be put into the front row. It gives party buffs, which benefit all type of classes, and also has element buffs which probably has the best synergy with Warlock or Fencer with Chain as its main skills deal with elemental attacks. With the ability as party healer, you may not need to bring another healer such as Rover or Botanist.

Shaman's job is all about giving buffs, so all type of Prayer must be learned as early as possible. One point is enough to learn all of them, then level up Gospel (to heal the entire party) and Prayer Mastery (to mitigate TP cost) to a reasonable level. Don’t maximize them yet as you still need skill points to learn and upgrade Prayer skills. Heaven's Gift may be useful or not depending on the rest of your party, and Dance Oracle is almost game-breaking with a proper party built around it. For instance, if Bolt Prayer is dispelled, the rest of party members should inflict volt-based damage (one or more Pugilists using Maxed Thunder Fist, optionally paired with Fencer's Maxed Chain Shock) will quickly demolish any FOE or Boss that is unlucky enough to be the target.

Aegis Prayer is available as bow skill early on (Sequoian Bow). You’ll need to forge it to unlock the skill.

Notes for Shaman and My Build:

  • Keep in mind that your party members only have 3 buff slots, with skills like Chain Boost, High Ground, Amplify, and Overexertion competing for those slots will be times where you’ll actually need to be careful that your Shaman doesn’t overwrite a more powerful buff. Luckily, Gospel still heals when spamming the same buff repeatedly.
  • Brouni’s Guard Order, Aegis Shield and Hygieia’s Bowl are incredible union skills for a party with a shaman as a solo healer, especially in the most early stages of the build.
  • I tend to prefer strong healing and cheap TP costs over stronger buffs, this allowed prolonged dungeon exploration without needing food/items. I would only return to town for new npc dialog, a full inventory, or dread of having to re-travel a particularly annoying floor after finding a shortcut. Gospel (10) / Prayer Mastery (10).

If Shaman is your main healer:
Start Prayer Mastery(1) > Gospel > Aegis Prayer(1),
Then get 1 points in the other buffs. Focus Prayer can be skipped and Ruinous / Aegis Prayer can be used to heal early game, but Focus is very cheap way to heal when you're about to end a battle. You may choose to skip the elemental prayers other than Blaze Prayer if you don't have a Chain Fencer, but you'll eventually want to get all of them. Those who persist in jolly dungeon exploration will find out why Blaze Prayer is an exception.
Then Gospel (5) and Prayer Mastery (5). You may skimp on Prayer Mastery points if you don't mind going back to town a lot.

At that point you can decide if you want Aegis or Ruinous Prayer to level 4 (but this will slow you down from getting Dance Oracle way down the road)
OR
If you'd rather be more TP efficient for longer dungeon runs / less food consumption get Prayer Mastery to 10.
OR
If you still need more Healing then Gospel has to go to 10.
