Why people think healers are Op

The real reason why people think healer are OP right now is because a majority of healers now are operatve/scound or sage/sorc. Now, in order for healing to be returned to a manageable state, operative/scound and sage/sorc needs to be on par with a minimally buffed Mando/Merc healer. This will fix the current healer friendly state in pvp, and things will be able to die in ranked once more.

People think they're OP because they think they should be able to be a solo healer killing hero.

You shouldn't be able to solo kill. But 1 good DPS should be able to stalemate 1 good healer. Right now Operative healers can spend 1/3 ofthe time on self heals and 2/3 on team heals whole being focused.

Just nerf the currently buffed self heals so they are the same as healing a teammate and it should be enough.

It's an older quote but it checks out. I was about to clear it.

The real problem is 2 of the 3 classes that are built to destroy healers are perceived as nerfed so very few play them. I melt Operative healers with my mara & my vanguard... and those are the 2 classes, with assassins as the 3rd, that really put pressure on me when I'm healing on my operative.

The only healer broken is Operative/Scoundrel. They need to be brought to Commando/Mercenary level

Scoundrel/Ops are fine. Not any more difficult to counter than any other healer.

...

What's really difficult, is not the healers, but breaking through the enemy team effort to guard their healer. You can't do that alone, nor only with just a few DPS classes. You need the whole team to break it, because the whole enemy team is protecting.
"To everything, there is a first step. The first steps in becoming better at PvP, is to acknowledge the fact that you totally suck. There's no shame in this -- even the greatest of players have been there, done that.
Stop complaining. Ask more questions. People are happy to help."

Do you even PvP? The whole team is protecting? No, of course they are not. Some of the team is on defense and some is on offense trying to, you know, kill the other team, disrupt their healers, and maybe even capture objectives.

You know how you fix operative healers? You make them use their damn energy. I almost always have 3 stacks of upper hand when I roll healer and I can practically throw out hots and emergency medpack all day long and never run out of energy (one is free the other costs practically nothing.) 90% of the time I don't even bother to look at my energy bar when I spec healing because I simply do not have to. Make the class actually have to pay attention to energy management and force them to actually use it and they become a more reasonable healing spec and not the EZ mode that they currently are.
