No. To be a viable healer you need to spec and build your way through the Seer tree, else you wont be able to keep up with the damage output.



Btw, yes, (OF COURSE) dps sage is viable...

Yup. Just a hint...to be effective in PvP as a healer you don't have to have 31 points into Seer.

Edit-Don't listen to this guy above me . You have to spec into Seer a ways, but you dont need the 31 pt ability.

Yep. Really all you need is 2 talent points to be able to function early on. Even still as a DPS sage you won't heal for that much less than a full on Seer. The big difference comes in the form of healing efficiecy, speed, and different types of heals, not strength.

I have to completely disagree with this assessment. The DPS a Telekinetic Sage can output is easily just as good as any other DPS class out there, not to mention our off-heals (for those oh sh** moments) and great crowd control abilities.

And not sure where you are getting this information that Presence increases every time you put a point into Seer... And for PvP that is utterly worthless anyways since you can't have companions in Warzones.
