    Default PVP Healing - advice needed

    Hi guys.

    I am looking to mainly play as a healer and looking for advice. I will mainly group with my partner and brother; we aren't exactly great players but I figured playing a healer would help us stay alive a little longer. They play warrior (WL/Pala) and rogue (MM or Tact).

    I have a 60 mage and 56 cleric. I enjoy the dps element of chloro, but as soon as I get focused, I get munched. I also enjoy the pure healing element of the cleric and able to stay alive a bit longer.

    What specs are proving to be the best at the moment? I am currently trying a heavy purifier build, with some warden thrown in, which gives some nice hots and shields, but wanted to get some other opinions on what would provide the best all round performance.

    Cheers!

    I have been reading that site but tbh had missed the thread regarding ST vs AOE healing, so thanks I was using the broken defiler spec before, but it looks like either full sent or purifier is the way to go!

    Full sent is the safest currently though I still see many play 61 and 40pt defilers.

    I personally wouldn't use puri but that's just my preference.

    I was enjoying defiler and I probably still will after the fixes but it does feel like a bit of a one trick pony to me (the 40 point variation), but perhaps I can try it with more points. I will have to try out 'full' sentinel later (got 4 levels to go). The main spec I have seen on the forums is 61 sent / 15 puri - would this be right?

    Thats pretty standard, gives you peak HI.
    But i use 58/18 senti/puri since i use healing flare more often (since i like to stay mobile) and would like to minimize the penalty of using a weaker heal.

    in puri, i pick up speaker, intensity, heat and 3 in preservation. Although you can put 3 burn too, to increase your HI output, but since i favor healing flare in more situations and use CI as emergency healing (and HI when i am not being bothered too much), i would like my flare to heal as much as possible.

    That sounds pretty good, as I am a bit crap at standing still and casting

    Thanks for all the advice.

    If you want survivability then I like 59/17 Sent/Defiler. This allow you to get Cardial Conversion. If you stay alive longer you can typically heal more ;)

    Also Lothsome Restoration will be your re-usable instant cast heal when you're running around.

    Cleric will be better for self-survivabilty over your 60 mage chloro, although you will miss the dps portion and mechanics-wise it is difficult switching betwixt the two since you will want to attack to heal after synthing your target as chloro and you will be clicking a lot of target frames switching around for heals as cleric.

    In any case a full sent or hybrid for cleric is best, as chloro I got 61 chloro, 4 dom (just 1 shy of a full 35 meters and gives mass charged shield, and the rest in pyro for flicker (this gives 2 break frees vs 1 and makes a huge difference when targeted or pulled).

    I know my chloro through and through and by and far barely playing my cleric I survive a lot longer due to the fact chloro self heals and CC skills are very subpar vs. targeted dps compared to sent cleric.

    In the end since you don't like standing still and casting you'll have to either learn a new playstyle or just go with what you enjoy and deal with its setbacks. As cleric you innately survive longer and do more heals but as chloro you help with the dps and if left alone can synth your partner warrior and do a great job, especially if he's looking to peel anyone targeting you off.
