This post is really a really a recruitment post, and I will get to that part, I promise! However, there was a blue post yesterday that I wanted to bring to everyone’s attention. Remember how I indicated that I just got clobbered by good monks and paladins, and it felt imbalanced? Well, it turns out they are bugged.
It’s probably not possible to overcome that much of a difference. Fortunately, you don’t have to, because paladins and monks both had some egregious bugs that inflated their healing. We actually hotfixed those bugs but then a new build broke them again. Until you get a new build or we hotfix the issues again, you are probably better off comparing druid, priest and shaman healing. I apologize for any inconvenience.
Overall, I would recommend not deciding who you’re going to bench based on beta testing until we are very close to ship. It’s not a great strategy to try to get your character buffed either.
I am encouraged by the commentary that they want healing to fall where priests, Druids and shaman are currently, as skilled players in those three classes are competitive and relatively comparable. To be sure, there are absolutely things with each of those three classes that players will indicate is still problematic and in need of a fix. But it is encouraging to know that paladins and monks are being scaled back to a more reasonable and competitive position.
Now About That Recruitment!
As it turns out we have a few healers retiring from WoW at the end of this expansion. This leaves us in a position to pick up a couple of healers on our roster. Right now we are looking for a Paladin and a Priest or Shaman.
We have a very strong and competitive healing team, and I’m confident enough to say that our healers are some of the strongest players on our roster. We push each other to be better healers, and challenge each other every raid.
