    Default Healing Spec

    Hello.
    Could someone please recommend a cleric pvp healing spec that is very easy to learn and use. I've never had a healing spec in all my years of playing and find it very intimidating.
    I'm ready for the leap.

    Thank You

    61 Sent is the best all round for PvP, don't bother with warden unless you have a number of sents or taking a lot of aoe damage.

    I just copied my post from RoD forums, for a more detail look at all the healing specs to use and other classes too. Even though this isn't the pvp section.

    Healer Killing Order:
    1st. Defiler
    2nd. Sentinel
    3rd. Purifier
    4th. Chloromancer
    5th. Warden
    6th. Bard



    Everyone in PvP is basically a tank which makes ST Healing very important no matter the map, and having one is not enough.
    Most clerics (I've seen) use Warden if their the only Healer in the raid they never do enough heals to keep people up on their own and create a slow wipe in the end.
    Warden is a counter to AoE dps; you wouldn't use Warden as a tank healer in PvE raids would you.

    Warden is only good once the raid has 2 ST Healers (i.e. Defiler, Sentinel, Purifier) (Unless you have at least 5 wardens all spamming HoTs.), though if the raid is going to take heavy raid damage you might as well use it.




    Defiler is an Epic Healing Spec if you can use it to keep the tanks or healers up and is near impossible to kill if any good, with 3 Links that act as damage reduction buffs for the whole match.
    Weaknesses are Mana and the Links can be purged either from the Defiler or off the target of the link and is not that good at DoTs at all.


    Sentinel is an all Good Healing Spec that no cleric should do without, its can pump out the ST Heals fast and maintain a number off people at once if the raid isn't taking too much damage. Its quick and easy to use with many buffs to aid in healing it self or 2 near by people, its combat buffs are super effective, with a 40% damage reduction buffs and a full heal (of max cleric hp) and even more important is can reset all its cooldowns every 2 mins.
    Weaknesses are Mana off course, all their buffs can be purged off which makes them easier to kill, they can become over extended if they have to heal too many without support very much when dealing with many DoTs on many people and to do their big heals they have to stand still & cast.


    Purifier a Unseen Healing Spec is PvP which mainly should keep its shields up on the raid and only worry about is healing if people take enough damage. Side note if a Defiler and Purifier team up the people they are covering are near impossible to kill.
    Mainly used for Pocket Healing tanks, their shields become a difficult problem to overcome.
    Weaknesses are again Mana though they rarely will use any and are very easy to take down if not being healed.


    Warden a Master AoE Healing Spec that again no cleric should do without, it can easily keep the raid alive with mass AoE and ST HoTs, with a cleanse that cleanses 10 people 2 times.
    Prefect for when the raid is taking heavy aoe damage or to keep every one topped off so the other st healers can do their thing.
    Weaknesses are again Mana very much, if their the only healer they can be ignored or simply killed with no resistance and they can't ST Heal at all.


    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Chloromancer a all rounded Healing Spec that can do AoE or ST Healing at the same time, they have a lot of health and their DoTs stop people picking up objects in a radius around them, they can strip all the HoTs off anyone and is a good mix with other healers. They can powerfully heal a single person not matter who it is and aid with the aoe weather direct heals or by damage.
    Weaknesses are again Mana, they can't keep themselves up on their own when focused and they require a target in front of them in order to max healing also LoS & range issues can happen when tank healing.


    Bard is a Prefect Support Healer with raid and combat buffs that aid is all things, they can help with raid healing from time to time. Hybrid or 61 can be very affective in over healing or throwing out buffs that can turn the tide, they are very mobile and never have to stay still.
    Weaknesses depending on spec they can have trouble with their energy, they can't self heal much and their healing always requires a target to do so.
