I may be Over-exaggerating here but low lvl Sorc healing seems So Bad. A skilled healer can not out-heal 1 DPS in pvp nor can they effectively heal themself or team mates.

So I'm curious why other classes such as Bounty Hunter can Out-Heal & Out DPS a sorcerer without even trying by twice as much or more..

What is the point in nerfing all inq healers. Yet letting all other dps/healers have Greater & faster heals.


PvP is basically pointless for a Inq Sorc healer. Decreased healing on players in combat. Decreased healing on yourself in combat. GG.


Bottom line. Sorc is nerfed to the point it isn't enjoyable nor heroic at all in pvp.


Has anyone else seen this? I can spec full heals and still not be able to effectively heal nearly as well as other classes. And I'm not a baddy nor a noob.

Sure in pve I can keep a group up No probelm. In pvp I cant outheal 1 dps.

lol Out of combat crit 4k in combat 2k.

Lol if you tried another class you would see. Be arrogant Idc u likely have not even tried the other heal classes.

I wasn't talking about lightning spec. I was talking about how healing as a sorc in pvp is worthless.

Try and heal someone Or yourself through 1 good dps. sorc heals are so Slow and so Low you cant do it. Sure you can heal them a little bit for a few seconds before they get burned down because your heals have no effect. yet it doesn't keep the player up.

Ive been a healer in just about every mmo I have every played. I enjoy healing in pvp. This game seems to be Punishing healers in pvp with nerfs and disadvantages. Why punish healers.

I for one am not willing to pay monthly for a game that my spec isn't even Viable in pvp.

Well see what happens when I hit higher lvls.

This is Just my 2 cents. Don't rage out.

regardless the 30% heal reduction is ridiculous imo and experience Although when people start to hit it might all start to balance out. Still Perhaps players wouldn't fell this if they were not forced into warzones with no level brackets.

Try not randomly capitalizing letters. This may lead to increased efficiency in healing in a player-versus-player environment.

Your only a low level I can gather from you saying your going to wait til higher levels.

Come back at 50 and try again.

It's still early access, I doubt there is an abundance of 50s running around.

He is voicing his concern about healing viability at his current level. I'm not spec'd for healing, but I do notice that other inquisitor healers seem to be somewhat lacking. I think the other healing classes look much more appealing for pvp. But this is all still low level speculation, we'll just have to take the ****** I quoted advice, "Come back at 50 and try again."

A prime example of BHs out-healing and out-dpsing a sorc without even trying:

I don't know what you're refering to here. Do you use static barrier? I am level 19 specced for healing and have a lot of fun in PvP. I routinely get a few MVP votes for my efforts (which is an awesome feature). So as long as you static barrier as much as possible, you can really help out your teammates, and spam infusion which you should make sure is specced to reduce cast time. I can't tell you how many people i've bubbled and it was all they needed to turn there fight...incredibly fun IMHO.
