A Cleric of Relic adds their WIS modifier to their AC if they are wearing cloth or no armor as a Monk does. This bonus cannot exceed half their level (max 10). Anything that would deny them a DEX bonus to AC also denies them this WIS bonus. As an immediate action they may spend one use of Channel Energy to take a second five foot step in a round.

A Cleric of Relik can choose one school of magic (Abjuration, Conjuration, Divination, Enchantment, Evocation, Illusion, Necromancy, Transmutation) and is able to learn spells from this school as a wizard.
