Sindust.7059 Posted December 24, 2021 Share Posted December 24, 2021 I'd like to try healing in GW2, but the expectations seem to be very restrictive (hfb or go home judging by LFG for fractals). So I was wondering if you could explain, why the meta is what it is, and what conceivable alternatives are there? For example I've seen a scrapper healer build on youtube that seems like a good option, providing quickness, might, stability, super speed, vigor and supposedly highest healing throughput in the game. Why don't I ever see anyone willing to take someone into their group with a build like that? The content I'm interested in are T4 fractals and raids. For context, I've played GW2 about 2 years ago for a couple months and came back to the game 2 weeks ago. The only char I managed to get to a good enough level for the aforementioned content is a power holosmith. Anything other than straight dps seems to me to be very convoluted in this game, because there is a thousand options to choose from, of which most sound good to me, but 99% of them are apparently wrong. And grinding out ascended gear takes too long to risk getting it in a weight and stat combination that I may only be able to use on a build that is "wrong". Also, are healers using Harrier's set because Minstral's and Giver's would pull aggro on some raid bosses and there is no healing power+concentration+vitality stat combo, or is it because healers are actually expected to contribute meaningfully through their own damage output? And if so, why not use Celestial? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
