Trying to get my wife into the game. Traditionally, we play holy-trinity based games (Tank, Healer and DPS -- sometimes support). In these games, she goes exclusively as a ranged healer. I realize there will be no equivalent class/profession in this game. What I'm looking for is what would be a best fit. I think she'd be happy with a ranged profession that has healing and boons/buffs. As long as it's helping the group and has some healing, I think she'll like it after some adjustment.
At first we'll be doing open world. I think she'd be interested in Raiding and group PvP if she gets into it. She'd never PvP solo (not her style).
I honestly don't know much about the game myself, just what I have ready online (must be true, right?). I did level a profession to 80 (Ranger) over a year ago, but I left for another game shortly after getting to 80. Based on what I remember from before and some of the recent builds I have looked at, I was thinking Ranger (Druid). Guardian (Firebrand) also sounds interesting, but it looks like it has some melee in some of the variations. Although she's fine with melee in small groups, she really prefers ranged.
Any additional information would be very helpful. It's hard to try a class out when the main part she is interested in is tied up in Elite specializations that require level 80 to try out. Thank you.
