6K HPS in the arena is not particular impressive, and it will most likely get you killed in ranked. If anything this either shows that gear does in fact matter, or that you lack experience with healing.

HPS is a factor of the opposing damage. Theyd have to do more dmg, we were full health at match end both rounds with zero deaths. Can't heal what isn't damaged.. That last person running around being goofy probably also has an effect. Most of my ranked games are around 5-10k hps.

Merc HPS is also considerably tied to defensives usage (sometimes 25% of your HPS) which you get to do in ranked but as you see below, they didn't even try to kill me, just CC/interrupt (which was the right play).

This clearly shows that the problem is that sorc needs a lot more healing nerf...

Eh, I think what your really trying to say Ble is that gear doesn't make you a better player.

We all know gear matters, all gear does is amplify whatever you are able to do at your skill level, but it won't make a better player. Like for instance, suppose someone is an awesome marauder player, exceptionally good, but he only has 116k HP when he loads into a match. He can probably run circles around a player that has 128k hp but has horrible timing, spams all there dcds, and tries to face tank everything. In the end, gear didn't matter for the guy with 128k because he was simply outplayed.

However, imagine if the marauder had the same gear. Then it wouldn't even be close, he would tear that guy up. So in the end gear matters, but skill, knowing your rotations and handling pressure is what makes or breaks the deal in most arena matches. Also, play an OP class helps too. xD

All other things being equal, gear matters.

99.9% of the time however, all other things are not equal. Outside of ranked.

Implying things are usually equal in ranked?
