In short, a real balance is needed against healer class. But to achieve absolute balance, the rest of class have to be adjusted too. But one thing you are right about it is that this is a MMO, so what should I expect, a white-knight can play many alts, so it is always a win-win situation for him, problem solved, EZ PZ@Freggel You have to admit there is one thing you said, that is not correct, that probably cause some people to assume scholars were absolutely overpowered:
In every MMORPG:
- SUMM ~ 8500 HP (as we see on screenshot)
- in 1v1 PvP: a character that can heal himself has advantages vs character that can't - Why? - because every damage healer causes to non-healer brings healer near to his win, but to kill a healer you have to take his whole HP down, without that he heal himselft up.
- in solo PvE: the most problem of healing characters is to do enought dmg (for example to go through a dungeon in short time), if healer is doing enought dmg, so time is not a problem anymore, obliviosly he can esier do every dungeon, because he can heal himselfLooks like you have no idea what a typical decent pvp healer usually build and your statements typically sound like a guy who has less than a week of play.
PS: Healers are well-known for its pvp unbalance since CBT, shaman and oracle esp
One of my friend said shaman is a single target Wiz (before patch) with a full heal and couple insane high dps combo that requires no cast time. It is still indeed true, even for now.
1: With the its armo debuff spell, you can simply get knocked down and get one shot as sin or archer,
2: Mage with just a bit higher magDef might last longer, but at the end, you either run out of MP, or slowly killed by it,
3: Their base def and hp are also ridiculously high still that making us to feel, " TF, we even need a tank to run dungeons or party Arena "
4: Everyweek of Avalon, esp before the ridiculous buffs on Archer and Sins, shaman, oracle are the only classes that can ez hit indomit in N.A server
Now, let's back to the topic
1st: The thing about healer's unbalance is not just said by me, many have complained about it in the past
2nd: Top PVP shaman, oracle should be full con build always, that instant full heal spell has nothing to do with WIL or any other stat (With speaker triggered, wow even more broken)
3rd: You are not eligible to judge others whether they are right or not, when you are inexperienced, and if you playing in EU server a place that is far less competitive than N.A, YOU SHOULD KNOW YOUR PLACE THEN
PPS: Yup, we are talking about the same game, and I assume you are play in that easy server, when I say healer can easily hit 20k hp (W/O any food buff), or even above at this stage, T2, boy. It is because I see those players everyday. And there is at least 5 or more in N.A currently. Including one of my decent healer friend and few from top Kr guild.
