Please give groups a pocket healer
Let's be completely honest - there is always a shortage of healers.
I am usually sitting in the que waiting for a healer.
I play a tank specifically because most players play dps.
Other games allow for companions.
Could you make a pocket healer that is purchasable thru DP that takes up a person's slot in a group.
Restrictions: only one pocket healer per group allowed.
@Rudedawg As someone that plays a fairly large amount of healer it's usually me waiting on a tank. Pocket tank please!
You're suffering from confirmation bias I'm afraid.
Try telling the DPS that sit in queue for 30+ mins because there's no tank queued that it's a problem and they'll laugh at you for 5 minutes solidly.
They should make more types of healers. I like to make concept thematic builds that are RP in nature. You can do that with many diverse builds with tanks and dps just not with healer. Healer is a role that really lacks any RP elements. You're just a guy... that heals. Combat medic? A nature healer, a priest healer. Not much going on there. Most healing was given to a conceptual hybrid type class in retail WoW. Like Shamans and Druids weren't healers they were their own class type. Here are some ideas that might make healing actually enjoyable for player to do to make. A damage dealing healer would be nice for melee and ranged. Would basically be a damage dealer that doesn't do as much damage as regular damage dealers but can heal while dealing damage. A monk like build that punches and causes explosions of healing for example or a bloodmancer that can steal life and give to allies.
