    Default Do healers get any bonus in wfs from this birthday celebration?

    I'm just curious. If I heal, do I get any bonus at all? I know if you kill people you get a bonus.

    The bonus is for all team kills, not personal killing blows. Keep on healing

    I'm sorry but I don't understand this.

    As far as I knew anyone that you heal that kills a player you get credit also for the kill also, as you should.

    Is there some problem with this?

    And if you're soloing what you doing? healing the mobs to death?

    I know you wanted to be sarcastic, but this would be kind of cool.
    Let's say it's death rift or similar, healer healing the mobs should do them damage instead.

    Good idea my friend
    I know it's off topic, but I though it was an interesting idea.

    lol no I wasn't being sarcastic for once. I was serious. Well about getting credit for healing ppl that killed mobs in group.

    I had a friend that played WoW and she told me that there was a Raid mob that healers actually got to heal to death... ok no idea what I'm talking about now..

    Sure. You get:

    50% favor bonus
    50% prestige from PvP kills

    Just like everyone else...

    WAR wasn't set to where everyone gets equal rewards. It's beyond ridiculous for people to think they should get MORE than others just because they heal. And I am a full-time healer in warfronts.

    Why do I do it? Because I get the same rewards as everyone else and I'd rather us *all* win more than to be a contributor to our loss, thus hurting myself in the process.

    Basic mathematics shows that if we're earning more Favor/Prestige by me choosing to be a healer, I just got an incentive for healing.

    I think you misunderstood the concern. It wasn't about healers getting more than other players. Since healers get kills at about the same rate that defensive tackles make interceptions, the question was more along the lines of, "Since we rarely get kills, are we locked out of the bonus?"

    If someone kills a player then everyone gets credits for it who is in the raid and in the same zone as the one who did the kill, no matter how far you are or wether you are dead or not. You get all the rewards even if you stay dead for the entire match and do absolutely nothing to contribute.

    I remember this ... the stupid design.

    For those not in the know, in WAR healing actually gives you renown.

    In early warhammer, during a scenarios (warfront), healers would heal the raid and gain all the healing renown for themselves. All the first RR80's were healers .... coincidence? At least in RIFT the only way to leave the raid is to leave the WF.

    I get it. The OP was asking that question. The person I responded to thought he was asking for an additional bonus for being a healer, when I don't believe the OP was.

    Thanks for being positive. Nice to have that happen on occasion in this forum.
