    Default Just wanted to ask is there a healer shortage?

    It seems like no one wants to heal. Everyone is complaining about long queue times but everytime I queue it pops in 30 seconds or less but only as healer. I just wanted to know did something happen where alot of healers just left the game?

    Its more fun/competitive to do DPS. Healing is only out of necessity for a lot of people, although some do enjoy straight healing. I think a good amount of people picked Cleric to be versatile for whatever is needed and not just to heal.

    I guess I am the weird one. I actually like healing more so than all the other roles. I just love seeing the big numbers on the heal crits. The only time I enjoyed DPS is if I was playing a rogue with the Sab spec.

    so many clerics who dont heal even if there is NO OTHER cleric besides them. So it has not much to do with versatility ...

    Well may be its because SO MANY OTHER players asked to nerf healers in PVP. You get what you asked for Don't have to ask Trion twice to use a nerf bat.

    If there is only 1 cleric on your side and it's me I'm healing to the best of my ability but I'm going to be marked and focused.......SO if you are a DPS protect your damn cleric healers and you might see more of us healing

    I think I hate though is when I'm healing and the DPS despite getting heals isn't kill anything or making any progress....I sometimes get so pissed I switch to DPS and go on a rampage just to get stuff done....

    Healing was fun until they nerfed practically every dungeon to accomodate the lfg tool, ever since then i cant keep concentration to care for healing in experts any more so i just go Dps

    This, sadly, only applies to Clerics.

    Clerics are still insanely good at everything, both PvE and PvP. I have no idea what you're referring to.

    I don't doubt for a second that Clerics are still INSANELY good in PvE AND PvP (emphesis on the PvP)... in fact, they are just great at anything and everything. That is why people are re-rolling Clerics left, right and centre.

    Clerics, specifically Cleric healers, are just all over the place. Ten a penny.

    Same goes for tanking it seems. Once I check the tank box, I'm in. I'd say more people queue for DPS since it's easier.

    As long as there is more than one player, PvP will be imbalanced.
