    Default PvP Absorb Tracking

    (I ran a quick search and didn't see this mentioned, so forgive me if I missed it.)

    Is there any way to roll absorbs into the Total Healing tab on the WF boards? Or even add a separate tab for it? Obviously this wouldn't be the easiest thing to program. but it's a bit disheartening using an absorb heavy build like Puri just to see those tiny numbers on the board.

    Yeah, there's really no practical reason for absorb tracking. It would just make the folks that use it happier. I like my numbers, but I don't want to run Warden just to pad the boards. I much prefer general effectiveness.

    Scoreboards are dumb, but if we have them, we might as well be tracking absorbs too.

    If anything do it so clueless people don't rant at a healer doing their job because the bard "outhealed" them.

    ACT tracks absorbs. Do you really need anything else?

    Yes, because unfortunately there are people in the game who think that if their healers are not "on top" of the wf boards..then they suck as a healer.

    I've often seen really great puris get berated because their heals were low on the board.

    I'd like it if they took it a step further and not only showed absorbs, but how many times you saved someone.

    How many saves you had is a GREAT idea

    The player base would need to be veterans of something other than Super Mario to even know what that means. They are that bad.

    It would still be bad, because the REALLY good healers would have 0 saves because no one would ever drop below 30% HP.
