    Default Quit saying...

    That all clerics should be healers. Its so friggin annoying getting yelled at as a cleric for not being a healer. Also do not whine that if we are DPS we should go warrior or mage or rogue because their higher dps, maybe we like to have heals for emergency and high survivability? This game is largely about being different than everyone else, if you want a cookie cutter game where DPS have to be the top dps spec/calling/soul all tanks and healers the same, there are 336 different calling/soul combos not even counting your spec, primary, gender, race, looks, gear, role, faction, name ect...

    TLDR = Quit QQing that all clerics should heal.

    Mix-maxing. Cutting out the unneeded in order to maximize a particular trait.


    In the case of a DPS, that means sacrificing everything necessary to obtain absolute maximum DPS. Something that a cleric has issues doing, as it's built into the souls. Unfortunately many people do not see the merit of a DPS with utility, and it's rare to find a group leader who understands that things like off-heals, buffs, debuffs, etc. can have an impact if played right.

    -sigh- Ok I am officially asking Trion to allow my forum name a name change -.- It was the name I made for my char during the beta for fun. Imo it is sort of like being racist "-looks at color of skin- -walks away-" except this time is name -.- From now on I will name my chars "A" so people cant use that as an excuse to troll.

    DPS, that means sacrificing everything necessarily to obtain absolute maximum DPS. Something that a cleric has issues doing, as it's build into the souls.

    Actually DPS is Damage Per Second, or a damage class. Not min-maxing. Thats elitistism.

    I never said it was, I was stating min-maxing, and relating it to the case of a DPS character. and min-max is not elitism >.>

    And here comes the flow of troll-claimers. Dude go look at other threads, this one is mostly a response to a popular thread. IMO only people who claim everyone is a troll are trolls themselves, usually just ignore those types of trolls.

    I already stated the corrected wording, now go back to the game and do bad DPS while everyone yells at you. If you weren't busy trying to bait a response(troll) you would have ignored that part of my statement.

    There are enough souls (classes) in this game to catter to the needs of everyone wanting to play a certain style. DPS clerics in this game have NOTHING that is not already used by a pure class. Well maybe if you are hellbent on wearing mail.

    Therefore, there is really no reason to play a dps cleric. Also clerics will never dps as good or tank as good as a pure.
