Hell is a Healer Named Siglinde, Part 2

公開


So, I have been casually playing my AST that I got for the Feast, doing leveling roulette from time to time when I am bored, and I hit level 50 today.

So far, Duty Finder mostly gave me low level dungeons like Sastasha and Haukke Manor, so I don't have a good sense of how difficult healing is, although I did not struggle so far. Tank almost dead? Benefic 2, she's healthy again. DPS ate a mechanic? Essential dignity, he's healthy again!

Maybe things will change in the higher level dungeons, but the strength of healing spells at low level feels incredible. A single Essential dignity can raise a DPS from nearly dead to nearly full. And you have abilities such as Lightspeed that make all spells instant for a while.

There was one point in Cutter's Cry where the situation became tricky. For those who are unfamiliar, the Chimera's "The Ram's Voice" does heavy damage and leaves a dot that will kill the players who survived if you do not Esuna it quickly. If multiple players are hit by it, you must stay calm, esuna the players who are almost dead (while hoping they do not get hit by anything else), and heal them up one by one. I actually enjoyed it a lot, and nobody died, so I guess I did okay!



I think the cards are disappointing. You press buttons for a puny 5% buff that lasts only a few seconds. AST does comparable raid dps to WHM and SCH in Savage, so there is no doubt that the buffs given by the cards are numerically balanced. But shouldn't the feeling and satisfaction of players be taken into account, too? A 5% buff feels neither impactful nor valuable, it feels like a chore added to keep skilled players from being bored rather than an integral part of the job...

I think in some way, playing a healer made me more elitist. After seeing the immense power of the tools that healers have, even at a low level, I found it harder to sympathize with those who cannot handle large pulls while dpsing (provided your tank is also properly played and well geared, of course).

Maybe it's not such a good idea for me to play healer after all. Lol!

I think Healer isn't for everyone. Like, you have to "like" healing as a concept/theme to actually enjoy it in this game. I agree with you about Astrologian - I still play it alot because of its theme. (also lowkey getting tired of how easy healing on WHM is)

Actually it's a FANTASTIC idea for you to continue Sig.
Healing has humbled the HELL out of me. You either have it so easy you could make a sandwich during a large pull ...or conversely you are yelling at the tv feeling your highblood pressure sore like a Bugs Bunny cartoon. It really provides you a first hand validity when offering "advice" to newbie/ returning/ garbage healers like me.
Heal alliance, heal wall to wall pulls Levels 20/40/50/60/70/80 dungeons, it's fantastic learning Exp!

Alwina, that's interesting. I have heard that healing in this game is very different from in most MMO's, so I always wondered if people who main healer enjoy healing as a theme differently. I usually don't heal in MMO's but I'll try to keep an open mind, haha.

Are you sure Lolo?! It's interesting that you are recommending this high blood pressure soaring life to me, you know, there is a meme out there about how MMO healers are all bitter, jaded and permanently annoyed at their teammates. I think I would like to avoid becoming someone like that... (maybe I'm better off being the one annoying the healer. Lol!)

LoL, no doubt you're going to seriously get some frustrating times healing random, elite, snobbish tanks. Those, along with the DPS standing in stupid..WHILE pulling things so you are effectively healing the tank, and one or MORE DPS at the same time. That will be the time they all die, blame you and you simply throw up duces and bounce.
Personal Fav is when you are in leveling gear, the maxed gear tank pulls wall to wall..you can't keep up, die..and the tank comments "You Suck" :D
