Point of View Header

A battle hardened Knight once said, “…many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view.” These are mine.

Min / Maxing gear in your chosen MMO has been around a long time. When a player chooses to Min / Max gear, they are taking an active roll in the stats allocated. They forgo the passive aspect of wearing the gear awarded, and customize it to squeeze every last drop of Stats out for their class. The way this is achieved is different in every MMO, but the results are the same.

Some consider this an important part of the game, separating the Great players from the bad. Given the amount of front-end investment to Min / Maxing, it also could be considered a Road Block.

I’ve healed on my sorc for more than a year without the set bonus. I leveled my operative and healed most of the current content without that juicy bonus boost to my AOE heal.

I even started to heal on my merc without the set buff to the supercharged gas, which is probably the most important ability of the merc class of healers.

Basically, I know not of these set bonuses you speak of and it hasn’t been much of an issue…until recently.

It took me far too long, but I finally managed to get a healer toon from all three classes on the Imperial side. Sith4lyfe?

I’ve even managed to heal up to Scum & Villainy and TFB HM with all three, with two of my healers spending time in the new NiM stuff.

The goal of this quest was to determine for myself which healing class I prefer and honestly to find out if the mercenary healer is as gimped as everybody seems to think it is.

The result was fun and some clarity. I’ll try to share that with you today and hope you can help me fill in the blanks I might have missed. Please remember that this is all PVE stuff. I can look at PVP next week if there is interest but let’s focus on operations for today’s review of the healers.

altruistic healing - title photo

This build focuses on blinding, medium DPS, and ties in altruistic healing to complement your shouts. It has high survivability and a decent amount of damage, taking advantage of the Valor’s critical damage bonus to go with precision.

While anchor builds on Guardians are always a plus in dungeons, sometimes you may want to go with a bit more damage. With this build, you can keep your survivability, up your DPS, and still be able to help support your party.

The wipe. The freaking wipe. It’s the morale breaker of a raid group and can eventually lead to guilds breaking up or hitting that metaphorical wall.
We’ve all been there, right? The boss just won’t die no matter what strat we throw at it or how we tweak the raid group. Sometimes you’re just not good enough or it’s just not your night. And, God forbid, sometimes it’s the healer’s fault. /cries.

It’s been a rough couple of week for my raid team and the guild in general when it comes to raiding. Both of our groups are chipping away at NiM content (TFB, SNV). Slow progress is being made but the details of that progress is where you can get into trouble.
