Sorry to pick this line out but I have to respectfully disagree. To the OP- run merc we need more quality healer tanks. It is more difficult to heal as a merc in high end pvp due to properly timed interrupts/CCs but when played right they are a force to be reckoned with.

Thank you. Last night was truly bizarre. I ran Op heals and was in warzones with no less than 2 healers at a time. Once with 4. I kid you not, this was a first for me. I have no idea how many people read this thread, it MUST be a coincidence but truthfully I've never had a night of PUG pvp with so many people healing, or at least trying. It was pretty darn nice.

DPS wise? I am quite comfortable with my DPS, the issue I have is staying up with no heals, that's why I took this direction.

Merc Heals? You're the first to recommend it. I played on teams with moonrunner..... I haven't healed on my Merc in a long time (or very well for that matter) and yes it does seem a lot more difficult. I might try that tonight, or Sorc heals.
Thanks.

Pug healers are depleted except for the occasional sorc but to say all the top imp healers are gone would be incorrect. It's my opinion that we are missing top end dpsers, that's why I often run dps to pick up the slack. A lot of my healer buddies still play minus Vandis but the vast majority of top dpsers on my friends list are gone. Sure there were traitors like combatmedic, amigo, okku (on vanish), neb, and especially grisha even though he doesn't heal, but there are still quite a few top imp pvp healers around. In pugs I find that imp dpsers don't focus well or peel which leaves the healers at a big disadvantage running solo. Can't tell you how many times I am the only person attacking Neb in a pug, even after I put a big target on his slippery ***.

Before you call me a traitor, you should realize a few things.

1. I ultimately joined LD50 not because they were "the best", but they shared the same mindset I have for PVP for the most part. In addition to that, I can get in a decent group almost anytime between the late afternoon and early morning. I wasn't getting that on the Imp side.

2. Before going to the Pub side, I tried to go to a different guild that I was hoping would fit into #1 above. In the end, when I was ready for a /ginvite, the offer was taken away because I had "a bad attitude". I troll ppl sometimes, and I still don't know how he came to that conclusion specifically. Miscommunication or something, but w/e. Worked out well for me.

So I see it as the Imp side being a traitor to me.

Really, I don't want this thread turning into 'who's a traitor' claims. The reality is a mass exodus happened circa Canderous Ordo, and what I'd like to see is some balance back so BOTH sides have more fun.

The reality of why someone is in Guild 'X' on repside really doesn't change the fact it makes the situation worse as 1-3 guilds gobble up competitive players. The reality is as time goes on, and the more this happens you guys will be playing yourselves. I guarantee it and you will be (if not already) bored. It happened on Kaas City, it'll happen again.

And as for DPS yea, I know what it's like to be one of the only guys shooting Neb'. It sucks to watch a 15K Marauder trying to donkey punch his tank into submission.

As I said the rate of healers I saw last night was amazing. I don't know why but I'll take it. Next we hopefully will some real tanks.....!

The only way to really balance the sides, is for the lacking side step up and educate help all the bads. No one wants to do this so it will remain the same, also in ranked you're much better or relying on great heals great dps and great tanks, and less on crutch i.e. bubble stun, while it's helpful a good team will just plow through it.

Unfortunately, the reason many of the bads are...well...bad is that they don't take instruction well. It's amazing how simple instructions are ignored (you know, call out incoming, don't follow stealthies, don't run away while I'm healing you, fight on the node, etc.). I'm probably one of them...I mean, I play a DPS/bubblestun sorc. I should know better, right?

lol traitors. i left tor in early july when imperial pvp was actually thriving. the guild i was in at the time <sever> was running ranked and winning most, infidels had just gotten together and were the best competition to ld50 and anyone else really competitive. I had played with many of you for a while and it was fun. When I came back in August Imperial PVP had died. Infidels had already disbanded pretty much,sever was beyond dead, the only 2 people i knew on had rerolled pubside for lack of people to play with. I tried to tough it out and pug in pvp but it was absolutely horrific. The quality of player had gotten even worse in the 1 month i was gone. Not only that, you wouldnt see any familar names that you know would have helped give you a shot regardless of pugs. After about a week of this nonsense I decided it was time to reroll. I joined LD50 and now can consistently get a group with players that know how to play each map, play against each class, make knowledgable in game moves, and generally have a good time playing with in warzones now. Thats all I want in this game. Is to play with people that know what they're doing and do it well. So sorry if all of you are still butthurt bc Impside took a huge 180 degree turn since the old days of Canderous Ordo but this is how it is now. Trust me I would rather play my imps over pubs any day, Empire is way more ****** than Republic but you gotta pay the cost to be the boss

end rant

(Ashley Schaeffer voice) If I recall correctly, Benedict Arnold used the same excuse to justify his traitorous ways.

No, in all seriousness, the line about traitors is just poking fun at my old imp buddies who rerolled around the time Infidels left for GW2. No harm intended, you were just lumped into the category of good healers who quit for pub side. Although it seems I may have struck a nerve ^_^. I don't mean to derail this thread talking about all the imp baddies, especially madbads like darkmagician, please continue.

Also in all seriousness, grisha/flak/cates is Benedict Arnold and CM/rippernine is John Wilkes Booth.

I've been back for a month or so. I do agree with some of the posts I've seen though. There arent many pug healers and most of them end up being severely undergeared sorcs that get run through pretty quick.
