    Default Pocket healing nonsense

    This has to stop - dunno what mechanic you would use - but something along the lines of once a single target had received X amount of heals from a single healer then any heals in excess of X damages the healer and target for X% of the heals of cast

    This would help stop the unstoppable warrior/pocket healer combo make a few e-peens flaccid

    Go some way to stopping the ridicuolus situation where someones wife/little bro/gf only heals them and noone else in a WF

    Makes premades less of a negative life experience for pugs

    And most importantly will deflate the egos or those poor saps who think they are someone in RL cos they
    are awsome in pixel land

    So can we make it so you can't do damage anymore after a certain period of time?

    Sounds fair to me. I can't heal your target of choice, you can't damage your target of choice.

    If the other 3 classes could take someone out in a few seconds after a stun, we wouldn't be having this conversation.

    I can safely asssume you all have pocket healers and therefore a vested interest - pocket healers are a very different thing to the general healer in a wf and turns the inept and unskilled into monsters - when one healer ( usually a little brother beaten into the job) focuses on one particular player only and makes that player a god then a penalty needs to apply - if you cant see past your own e-peens ( or e - **** ) and recognise that this would help solve so many imbalance problems and introduce some thought into the game then your unhelpable - its only an idea, theres no need to be frightened of ideas you know.

    Actually it's because the other 3 don't survive even with a pocket healer. So pocket healers go for the easier to heal warriors! (I know I do!)

    Ever thought of attacking the healer or disrupting healers? I see it every day with dps attacking the person being healed and not thinking once to swap to the healer.It makes me laugh everytime I see it.They think eventually the person being healed will die.Wrong

    I actually think it's a little more complex than that. But yeah, the basic idea behind it seems to be something most people don't get.

    Sounds great. However, since I have a big ****ing #1 over my head because I am one of the few healing clerics left, THIS has to happen in response. After I TAKE x% of damage in a WF, my damage reduction from all sources gets increased by x% and my heals on other targets get increased by x%

    I mean seriously, this train crap of 5 dps running around insta gibbing people HAS to stop.

    I think I AM a healer that heals everyone and that the entire 'pocket' healer concept is a myth put together like aboslutely ****ty players like yourself that likes to whine. Do you REALLY think people play healers just so they can run around and spend their leisure time SERVING someone else as a pocket healer?

    You are seriously ****ing stupid.

    Of course it's more complext than that but there are a LOT of players in any MMO who will still play like this.It's refreshing to be in a warfront and actually see the enemy trying to interupt and kill the healers because that makes healing so much more of a challenge but i rarely see it.
