    lol!

    I can say this, I know of a very awesome physican out there that will be a grand addition to any WF he joins. That said, being a cleric I would still be rolling a defiler in a WF.

    I'd say this...if you got like 8 healers, someone needs to switch and dps. And...if that happened I would do whatever it takes to win dps if need be.

    I'm making my dps specs (tweaking them for pvp) today! I should change my name again to hide how crappy dps I will be at first.

    I don't know what to say for Mage healers (and haven't for a while), and I haven't been impressed by a Warrior healer. However, I still think well played clerics can dish out equal or superior performance to a Physician. But, that's a sort of illogical stance. The true power of healing lies in synergy and combining heal roles that compliment one another with good saves/abilities. Ie. why in Eq2 the classic Templar/Defiler rocked. Best reactive damage with strong spot heals, coupled with best shielding. Make the group 2x of either and the job would become much harder if you were fighting real raid bosses.

    So, I don't like the whole ranking of healers. Even bards and Chloro's still have a spot in the world of things that can heal. It is not about a solo healers performance, but when you couple multiple heal roles with various styles of execution that you start to cover more bases of survivability. Some of these roles have things you just can't replicate, thus synergy is king. Links are the best example. It's why I don't like healer ranking. Because you can rank them all day but, at the END of the day - no healer brings anything to the table comparable to links as far as the big image of team survivability.

    But people always try to make Rift more simplistic than it really is. It's not overly complex, but, so many aspects are not given proper merit and perspective IMO. Like judging DPS based on only KB's and Damage. I can pump those stats, but, sometimes I can put out a better performance with some more patience, strategy and just overall stuff that will give me downtime of putting up raw damage and nabbing KBs. That was just an example to end with this OPs concept. I don't know if threads like these joke, if it is satire, or people genuinely believe the things threads on this forum say. But things are not what many think they are.

    Sounds like we've got heckling, streaming and beverage enjoyment as our new main roles. ;)

    Great! Now that every loss isn't my fault on my cleric or I don't have harassment on the rare occasion I dare to go dps, I'll play cleric more in PvP again

    I don't trust noobs.

    I usually swap if they are doing well though.

    I am still healing because I still don't get healed. I died more last night than I did all week too so all this crap about invincibility is annoying the **** out of me because I didn't get a slice of it.

    healers finding out dpsing without heals is harder than you thought?

    To be fair most of the people who get no heals in a warfront are out of range or los from the healer. Particularly when there's only one, as tended to be the case frequently in 30s to 40s brackets prior to latest patch. Most groups tend to split up, and even the best healers can't be in 2 places at once. Also, I've seen plenty of DPS that don't require constant heals. Would love to learn those secrets.
