    Default Preserver vs Physician/other healers, am I doing something wrong?

    I've been playing preserver for a while ( pvp ) I always felt it was a bit weak, that I can't save people as much as other healers, and when someone is just low health but not taking damage, it still takes me forever to bring him to 100%...

    I thought maybe it's gear or I don't know maybe all specs are like that...

    But the more I played it the more it felt like it was super weak, so I made a physician spec real fast to compare, I didn't even read abilities, and without even using the class buffs, I just spammed active treatment on the healing dummy, buffed by maintenance therapy -my only legendary point spent- and I get over twice the healrate of preserver's full rotation including the burst..

    What the hell?

    And yes preserver shields, but even counting the shields the full rotation doesn't even get close to spamming 1 button on physician.

    My best abilities on preserver don't even come close to heal as much as the physician instant 1 button spam... And of course physician has burst too.

    Is preserver just freaking terrible and I just caught on?
    Or what am I missing?

    People who played both specs, do you find similar results? Physician being massively superior to preserver?
    I'm asking but I don't know what else it could be... I mean I have zero ability on preserver that heals more than the phys spammable instant ( with maintenance therapy ), and that's just 1 ability+1 legendary.

    Yep, has been this way since sfp came out. Primalisy, the class with limited playstyle options cant even heal in pvp anymore.

    Oh and if you think physician is bad, take a look at fk. 33k st hps sustained with no aoe padding, heaps of passive hots, heaps of massive cds, like omg fk was built for pvp healing.

    I tried Preserver the other day and it's pretty sad how rubbish it is. 5 Games was enough no thanks.

    New Primalist Souls topic

    Don't give up hope, primalist healing might not be the best or good enough or even decent or barely OK at this point, but it might be someday.

    HA!

    I came back to the game when Primalist came out. I gave it my all. I did everything in my power to try and make the spec useful. The only place i found any fun was in PvP and even then it was getting weaker over time as patches happened. So i just abandoned the game again.

    I had spent so much time, effort, and real world money on the toon. I just felt so burned. Now I want to come back and im so afraid to pick the "wrong" class again that I am surfing the forums... but they don't seem as active or have as much up to date info that I am looking for
