Other than the Cleric class, can any other class/soul combo heal directly (vs indirect healing - such as "gains health from blocking attacks," etc.)?
Checking out a Soul Planner, I see the Warrior Paladin soul has a direct heal (touch of Life), but it is on a 10 minute timer. Also, the Rogue Bard soul has a DoT heal (Motif of Regeneration) and two direct heal (Motif of Vitality, Coda of Restoration).
I've always preferred hybrid classes in my MMORPGs and since I tend to spend most my limited game time soloing/questing I like to minimize downtime (time spent running back to a corpse, time spent waiting for health to regen between battles, etc.). I always gravitate towards classes that can heal themselves plus deal damage (vs pure healers). Does this limit me to the Cleric class in Rift (not that I would have anything against that)?
