Hi guys, my question is that, right now, what is the class that is easier to heal?

Thank you for your answers!

(No ironies if possible please XD)

Sorcerers/Sages are (still) the best.

PVE - Sorc/Sages

PVP - Ops/Scoundrel
-I would rather pay for a great game than play a poor game for free.
-Viable and worthwhile are not the same when it comes to class design.
55 Commando - 50 Gunslinger - 50 Guardian
Beta tester...loved the game, hate what it has become.

Well, in both PVE and PVP you should be bringing two healers. In both situations that should be one Sage and one Scoundrel. The Sage will usually put up the slightly bigger numbers (due to the better AOE heal and the fact that bubbles almost always apply their full value even when applied pre-emptively while HOTs do not) but the two have different styles that complement each other perfectly.

(For what it's worth I'm a V78 Sawbones and have also healed both KP and EV in Hardmode multiple times.)

On the whole, sorcerer is probably the strongest healer right now. Any of the healing classes can get the job done though.

I strongly disagree with the above poster's statement that we "should" bring a sorcerer and an operative. That is pure foolishness, imo. I will say that ideally I would prefer to bring a sorcerer and either an operative or a mercenary. I'd be fine with having an operative and a mercenary, too.

It's true that I would prefer to avoid having two of the same healing class, just for balance reasons.

But bringing 2 sorcs is great, so much healing from always having an aoe heal down, they can just sit and spam lightning. 2 sorc healers = like having 5 dps instead of 4.

Single target healing Operatives/Scoundrels are now the best, for AoE healing and all around utility Sorc/Sages are the best.

^This, with the added fact that operatives are the best endurance healers as well; there have been plenty of times where the sorc healer in my raid was oof, while i was perfectly fine after some rough healing phases.
