    Default 50% Of All PvP Players Heal

    Look at Healing Done during a Warfront, I was shocked to see that just about half of every one playing is on that list and about a 1/3 of account for more than half of total healing done.

    Too much healing in Rift, so much PvP is just not as exciting and fun as it could/should be. We all want healers, but not this much.

    I'm sure Trion has ways of collecting in-game data, just look at the sheer amount of healing in Warfronts!

    The first rule of PvP, and Warfronts, Battlegrounds, whatever. Trust no one but yourself to heal.

    That being said, in the last 12 or so warfronts I've done in about 2 days, I've only seen a handful of Clerics that were specc'd to heal properly. Just because a class HAS a way to heal itself doesn't make them a good party healer, or a PvP healer.

    Warriors can't really even heal themselves unless they are tanks. BM has a bad heal tied to their pet at 31, but if you're 31 BM and trying to PvP, you're no threat.

    You're probably looking at the heal numbers from all the necrolocks with soul purge.

    If 100% of all players in a Warfront should heal, if you're not, you're not playing well enough. They have single target healing potions, group healing potions, and rift consumables that do damage, and HEAL YOU.

    Bloodthirsty procs/Consumables affect your healing done in WFs. I can beat bad healing clerics in a 51 sin spec.

    The total amount of healing in warfronts in rift is over the top. Whatever the source as it stands today the team that heals more wins.

    Rift PvP is World of Healing! I'm not sure what can be done about it seeing how talents are in Rift -so many choices with so many souls.

    It seems you either nurf ALL healing done in warfronts and effectively all healers spec DPS or you increase every ones survivability by buffing valor -which is what the are doing.

    By buffing valor they have also announced that THEY WANT PvP to have as little player death as possible as the healers that were near impossible to kill now can more or less stand still and free cast -exaggeration but we are not far off.

    Seems as if Sara Palin is responsible for PvP in Rift!

    To be honest, the valor buff was needed in order to give players who don't have gear yet a fighting chance since P6s can easily 2-gcd new 50s (in epics, not greens). The crit reduction is a bit overboard yes, but testing will eventually have it reduced (can't really test on the PTS).

    Can you show me one Warfront where one healers heals were over 1 million? I can show you dozens where one person scores over 1 million in damage.

    And when you think you've heard all the exaggerations, you're given this guy.

    Time to kill will still be far shorter than any other PvP game on the market. Your point? I thought they had no healing in FPS games?

    You must have missed the thread on it. Show me just one where a Cleric can heal that much first.
