Also please stop treating me like a new player. I've been playing warzones since the game came out and I can confidently say that the healing class balance is slightly off. Rolling a Pyrotech atm and my damage is consistantly high, involved in scores and I ALWAYS use Teamspeak when playing to co-ordinate focus on healer. When 3 full champion geared players can't focus kill 1 healer some alarms go off in my head thinking this class is too hard to kill.

P.S I assume your healers then?

ok so we finally get to the point.

Your complaint is about hybrid spec sorcs being too effective. Bounty hunter bodyguards are killing you?? ***.

I thought ive seen everything in this forum but complaining about bodyguards doing too much dmg might be the first.

Healers need LESS surviability?! If they dont have guard on them they die quick as hell, I even kill healers with my damn tank in 1v1 situations.

You are seriously confused about the difference between an actual healer and a DPS specced enemy that can also heal due to the heal being granted by the class and not the spec. If you want to see "heals nerfed for DPS Sorc/Merc specced characters" then convey that as your main point and you're argument may gain a little credibility. Although, judging by the OP and responses that's unlikely in any event -_-

3 players unable to kill a healer means the healer was almost assuredly guarded, you guys taunted and most likely being CCed and the healer was not only healing themselves and/or being healed by someone else.

Either way you're talking a bout a 2+ vs 3 scenario NOT a 3v1 scenario as you imply. Stop trying to exaggerate the circumstances to try and make a point, you only make yourself look bad, like really really bad... like "I was fond of eating lead pain chips as a child"... bad.

its because your thread was really bad, saying the mechanics are fine when you don't even know the mechanics..you don't even have a healer.

You made a long rage post after you and your friends in vent couldnt kill a geared(and probably guarded) healer.

The above post pretty much offered some constructive crititcism, it took into account that you 3v1 situation was not as such a 3v1 situation. If he indeed was unguarded, I smell lack of interupting/interupting the wrong heals or miserable dps.

I think i know what he means but those guys are no healers ...

i only know about the sorc but am pretty sure that mercs can do that too

it is possible to get the first heals and boni and a more or less decent dps setup

for sorcs i mean that you skill the healing tree up to force bending and the hot
this gives you quite some survivability, while you still can do moderate damage
still they wont be able to do anything ... except kite you for a bit longer.
If you put pressure on such a spec it will litterally drain itself out of power within a minute
Survive that long and you win ... die and well the guy is pretty much disabled until he can rest and useless as dps or healer


in case that you realy mean pure healing spec ... well lol
it is litterally impossible for me as pure healer to kill someone in a one on one in an acceptable time.
And while i try to my team will die

Tl:dr:
There are specs that allow a moderate survivability for yourself with heals, while still beeing able to deal "some" (and thats realy not that much) damage, to stay competetive in a 1on1 but those pretty much gimp you as healer and as dps

Tanks are probably reducing your damage. Mindlessly zerging the healer is stupid. Pay attention to the situation.
