    Default Do heals actually bring anything to PVP or can we do away with them?

    Heals are a niche mechanic used for:
    1. Camping points and waiting for someone to attempt to 1v1 you only.....You get to spam heals and never run out of mana making that someone run off to another point.

    2. Stand at the back of a group and spam invocations till the end of time.

    3. Making everyone invincible.

    I see no point in this outdated unnecessary mechanic. The point of warfronts is to kill each other. Why do we need heals to extend the amount of time it takes to kill people? Can't we just have no heals at all and make if fair for everyone trying to get kills?

    Do you know how annoying it is to have a tank at the front lines within 500hps of death ONLY TO BE FULLY HEALED BY SOME ******* CLERIC STANDING AT THE VERY BACK OF HIS TEAM BEING COMPLETELY IGNORED BY MY TEAM.

    Seriously heals are complete bs and should be nerfed into the ground or completely taken out of the game because I for one am not going to change my tactics of trying to kill the melee in front of the group with 50k hps first.

    And you are the very same person throwing a tantrum in the stealth thread.

    You are a tool. That is all.

    Heals are OP when DPS is bad. Simple as that. The problem is DPS is frequently bad while generally healing is easier to play and done by better players.

    Fun example, play a few karthan ridge matches. Both the stones running up the side? Who is with them? All the healers and maybe a third of the dps while the rest of the dps is dying with their horse blinders on in the middle.

    Any decent player with a meter would agree with me.

    This is one of the reasons why I love to heal in PVP. Everyone encounters this, I decided to see how it feels on the other end - its nice btw. Try a heal spec or roll a healer and then reconsider.

    Hopefully people will see how ridiculous this thread is so they can also see how ridiculous the "remove stealth" argument is.

    Or maybe we should remove everything so all we have is a girly slap-fest. I think that's where we're going...

    Remove all game mechanics except auto attack, now the game is balanced.

    finally, someone talking sense on these forums.
    the problem with the OP, is that heals aren't the problem. dps is the problem.
    if we get rid of the dps we wont be dying so much and wasting time waiting to res in the respawn. so ditch the dps and we can spend 100% of the match actually PvPing.

    no dps, no stealth (those coward rogues who hide from pvp will probably rage quit, but since we never see them in the first place we wont miss them). just healers and tanks constantly beating on each other for solid pvp action till the timer runs out.
    PvP heaven.
