Hello Wildstar community! Firstly let me introduce myself, My name is Tekzzz. I have been an MMO healer since 2005 mainly in WoW (apologies in advance as I know the sour taste of some of these fights will linger with many members of the community) A question about healing in Wildstar has puzzled my brain this week and I want to write down what my thought process has been so far in the hope of finding a solution. Little Disclaimer: I have not had the Wildstar beta invite (insert rage) so I have readied myself to be proven wrong. Also would just like to say this is my opinion, this is not fact, just my thought process. Ok here we go... With the new Telegraphing system in Wildstar being demonstrated, 2 immediate thoughts hit me: 1) Well done for encouraging those to stand out of things, it is a good habit to get into. 2) If people are avoiding the damage... where will the healing be needed? So I decided to break down what damage can one player take in a standard fight: -Boss normal damage -Add normal damage -Fight ability damage -DoT debuff damage -Mass aoe raid damage (apologies if i missed anything out but this is just a short overview) So I can assume the Boss and Add normal damage will apply to the tanks as they will have the threat which will have to be healable, so no arguments there. The DoT ability damage and Mass aoe raid damage (I assume) will be unavoidable. The fight mechanics however I assume will be telegraphed and therefore avoidable. So I don't want to waffle on for ages so here is my main question I really would like answered: 'With the introduction to the Telegraph system and it being easier to avoid certain damage, will this reduce the need for healers OR reduce the amount of healers needed for the raid?' My thought process on this was from the point of view of a top world PvE guild. They will be good enough to take the minimal amount of damage needed, so why would they use a healer slot for healing that isn't needed? Thanks for taking the time to read this unecessarily long piece but I really put a lot of thought into this.
