    Exclamation Do *NOT* nerf Healers!!

    As the title states, Do *NOT* nerf Healers, and heres why...

    1. It provides a very necessary longevity in PVP battles, if Healers didn't heal soo well then every fight would last 1-3 seconds. With great healing, comes great battles.

    2. Keeping the Healers strong also creates desirability. Who in their right mind is going to want to play as a crappy Healer, especially if they can't do it well?!

    3. It makes a boring role/job more interesting, and beneficial to a group.

    4. It creates self worth, if these Healers aren't EPIC at what they do, then they will get tired of it and reroll to a DPS class like everyone else.


    IF you can think of other reasons why Healers should not be nerfed post a reply including your thoughts. =)

    agreed that you should not nerf healing.

    But their dps needs to be toned down.

    That is the real issue. The dps plus the healing.

    Agreed, healers should not be nerfed. If healers are nerfed to the ground it would take the fun out of the class.

    Currently my Cleric is 15 and right now is a blast to play.

    Even spec'd full dps, a Cleric's dps is pretty low.

    At lower levels its harder to notice, but once you hit 20+ a Cleric's dps becomes crummy. A good player from another class can reach similar damage at like half the Clerics level.

    wow, as clerics, we think our DPS needs to be BOOSTED if we spec pure dps. not nerfed...where is this even coming from? everyone knows that at low levels, clerics are OP but that is at LOW levels...get with the program guys

    What will REALLY suck is if they nerf Cleric heals due to people whinning in PvP and then there being like no good healers in PvE : /

    um no. Cleric dps is too low if anything, please do not make it any worse. you start to notice it at higher levels especially.

    People are too low now to get the healing debuffs/silences/interrupts that they will get at higher levels.

    In fact, it might be as we get to 50 that healing might actually need a pvp boost given all the tools that people have to neuter it.

    Clerics are fine right now. Their AoE DPS can seem kind of silly (as in, it's too good), but I'm not asking for anyone to remove things or tone them down.

    For PvP, you just have to know how to fight them, plain and simple. No class I've encountered so far is impossible to beat.

    So true. The sad fact of the matter is if a DPS can't burst someone down quickly then they come here asking for healing to be guttered. Less healers in pvp = less healers in pve, its as simple as that, no one likes to roll a particular spec to then only be able to enjoy half the game's content.
