Oh gosh, I hope I can handle healing all these people at once. I've never had to keep so many health bars big and full before.
I think the point of the image is that in SAO, .hack//, Log Horizon, etc., healers are portrayed as shy and cute
But when you play MMOs for real, healers are condescending assholes
Only SMN know the real struggle...
>Not using pic related in time because fucking Garuda
>that 1 dps who stands a mile from the group
>wow this fucking healers sucks kick him
>puller fucks up the pull order
>telling him he's not getting healed
A true pussy WHM. Bitch fucks the pull, guess which party member just warped back to town fuckers. Enjoy your death trap ladies.
So you want me to interrupt my blizz 4 and drop my enochian just to get out of that huge aoe that is only going to hit me for like 2k?
Glad I don't play with you healers lol
>play healer in this game
>every expects me to dps and switch on and off cleric stance while healing them.
seriously fuck this shit the last 7 pugs all cried about this. telling me its my fault that we cannot win and not the two bards faults. this is why I quit this game.
What if the whole party thinks like you?
In FFXIV you are expected to deal damage when everybody is full HP, that's why you have the Cleric Stance. Most raid bosses have a DPS phase that needs EVERYBODY to hit the boss, even the healers.
>not DPSing while you're otherwise standing around picking your ass because nobody is in need of heals
yeah because its my fault that we rolled two bards. fuck off all of you I rolled in as a HEALER not a dps/healer. bards are garbage at dealing damage if my WHM can out dps them they are massive shitters.
I was thinking of trying it but then I remembered
>1,5 second-long global cooldowns
>tank asks you to stop spamming Holy
Like seriously fuck off
also forgot to add that me wasting my mana on dps means less heals when your taking a billion damage because you dont know how to dodge nor how to move the bosses. HEY GUYS LETS JUST STAND INSIDE THE POISON/FIRE/EARTH RING AND JUST GET HIT BY IT DEALING 90% OF MY HEALTH YEAH!!!!!
>used to play cat for the entirety of 2.0
>played lizard for all of 3.0
>switched to hyur on 3.1
>healers crying about WARs not being in defiance
>not knowing defiance doesnt give any damage reduction
Fucking shit ass healers
Now, the others I can agree on. .hack// being full of shy healers is horseshit though. There are a couple, Atoli and Elk come to mind. But the other wavemasters/harvest clerics you meet are anything but, and range from benevolent to massive dickbags.
For example BT is a huge cunt to everyone. Shino is anything but shy. Helba is an infamous hacker. Mistral is goofy and hyper. The Medic Union is full of retarded sentai roleplayers. There's a bunch of random players you can interact with that break this mould, too.
I play white mage faggot. I still run out of mana because the tank is always undergeared and doesnt know how to play then expects me to do all the dps while healing so fuck off faggot. Also those faggots who pull the entire dungeon and get instakilled because he being a dumbass.
>needing healing crutch to excuse shitty healers
>needing Defiance to maintain aggro
>playing shit after shit
>not playing best race
Highlanders are also acceptable.
>spent my time as roe from 2.0 to halfway to 2.4 as roe
>switch to elezen then roegadyn again then hyur and back to roegadyn
Truly the best race though i do sorta miss being elezen. It was mostly the voice, one that isn't shared by roegadyn sadly.
you should not be having this trouble and it is a bigger indication that you are bad. also most things that make you move in the upper fights are not "2k" damage, it's get the fuck out of the way before you get 1 or 2 shot.
then again you probably never did the primals let alone whatever the higher content is in the current expansion.
Confirmed. I play a SCH, and I'm the most arrogant, condescending asshole you can ever imagine. But in my defense, most people I heal play like shit. You think I don't notice when you're not using cooldowns? You think I don't notice when I'm pulling more DPS than the actual DPS while also keeping everyone topped up and micromanaging my fairy
with a fucking controller? I do. And I hate you so much for it.
Put in some effort, you fuckers.
I play SMN and I dodge everything. You are a moron for not dodging.
Wasn't the best part of that image that it was a DPS saying that?
That's because summoner cast times mean jack shit. What's the worst thing you'll interrupt, Ruin 3? All the most powerful shit is basically instant, it's a thousand times easier to be more mobile as a summoner.
You underestimate how huge a DPS loss it is to not get that Blizz 4 in time.
I understand not dodging an aoe that will deal shit damage as just the AOE healings of the SCH will heal you to max. Also I remember BLM have a skill that protects them for incoming damage for this sole purpose. Am I right? Didn't played BLM since 2.0
A bard can easily pull 1100+ just single targeting without even doing anything fancy, in A1 it can go up to 1200-1300 depending on the overall kill speed and I'm talking middle of the road skill, not top percentile fflogs tryhards.
Furthermore, in dungeons it's extremely easy to AOE as BRD, pulling 1400 to 2800 depending on the size of the pack and skill.
I mean, that's definitely more than that 600 DPS MNK who doesn't even know Rockbreaker exists.
I think it only blocked the next two physical hits. I haven't played BLM since before the expac but they tweaked it to block a certain amount of physical damage like stoneskin with HW or something like that.
The metric isn't accurate since it only counts the mount (you can't count the achievements, they're publicly blocked by default).
So that's 58 clears not counting possible one-chests or drops to the ground after 8 weeks of stable static clears.
>DPS is shit
You are retarded and have no idea how to tank. As a DRK I only need to do the opener in Grit and then turn it off forever in A1S. Its impossible for anyone to pull aggro away unless you accidently have 10 sec heartattack
Sort of, but you're encouraged to DPS as much as you can between heals. If you're a scholar you can leave most of the healing to your pet in easy content and dps almost the whole time.
Scholar is also more based around damage mitigation and shields than pure healing.
When I healed I put in macroes for mousee-hover healing so when I was in 4-mans I just sat back and hover-healed when i wasn't spamming my dps rotation.
I never heal in 8-mans because I'm scared i'll do terrible.
>Scholar is dmg mitigation and shields
not this meme again.
SCH is literally a DPS class with some heals. Adlo and Succor are their whopping 2 shield abilities, and if the WHM is any good you only use those to preshield for big hits.
Sounds neat. Shield and mitigation healers are my favourite to play.
Disc Priest in WoW for instance was great fun. If the Elder Tales MMO from Log Horizon was real, I'd main Kannagi.
Dropped, nobody likes this.
Tanks are supposed to grab the healslut and pin them to the ground after each run and furiously pound them with their two-hander for only being 99.9% efficient with their heals.
This of it this way.
You could play 144$ for a game that you can do something in every day, or you could spend the same amount of money on a AAA game that you'll sink around 60 hours into before getting bored and shelfing it.
>or you could spend the same amount of money on a AAA game that you'll sink around 60 hours into before getting bored and shelfing it.
That implies I play more than a couple AAA games per year, let alone pay full price for them. If there's one I think looks good I'll wait for a price drop or sale.
One game that gets 4 major updates a year, on top of seasonal events, and other minor things.
If you don't think it's worth it, maybe its not for you. I mostly play FFXIV due to friends.
Yeah same, a europoor on cactaur, but I've been playing for 3 or 4 months. I just have a habit of ignoring the main story.
