A Serie Finalized: Healing Inspection

November 7, 2008

It all started in September, a couple of months ago. Healing was on my mind, and the plan was to see how it could be tended, to become something wilder, greater, and better.

Well, that was the plan at least.

In practice, I have learned alot how the different classes heal, and also where they lack. Somehow, during this healing journey, I have come up with different skills that could complement each of the healing specs.

In retrospect, some skills are perhaps better than others, but I think they are all useful in some way, and most important, different than anything else healers have so far.

I feel, that what makes a game fun, is the choice of options, and giving classes another something they can use, instead of something they should always use, is a step in that direction.

Similarly to my previous series, I have summarized all the posts in a single page, and a link to it can be found on the right (or simply here), under the name Healing Inspection.

I hope you have enjoyed reading this series as much as I have enjoyed creating and writing it (although it was exhausting at times), and now is the time for yet something else.

I am thinking achievements…

While a man can always look back at what he has achieved, the best vantage point is usually at the end of every journey.

Healing Inspection

September 5, 2008

Medicinal Intrusion Incoming

Delight and exhilaration.

A new topic is upon us. So rejuvenating! After over a month of talking mostly about the same thing, I for one feel quite renewed to switch to something else. What would it be though? Hopefully something interesting, for delving into boredom would surely render me quite unpopular.

How about discussing healing?

It’s pretty important. It’s used in instancing, raids and also PvP. It’s relevant, and everybody just loves healers! This sounds like a winner to me.

I intend to keep my quirk of inventing new abilities. I know it doesn’t do as much good as theorycrafting what is the best build, but hey, it’s my blog, and I’m its master. So, if I intend to come up with new stuff that has to do with healing, I think a good basis would be to inspect what sorts of heals the game already has to offer.

Ready for your inspection? Warning: This might be thorough.
