If I had two level 50 Healers, I'd rather have both with some Healing than one with 50 in Healing and one with 50 in Pacification... What if the Healer goes down?

As I learned last night, one of the lower healing spells is 2.0 second duration. 1 second faster, but not as much sheer healing. It can still save a life.

Also, can someone explain the 25% healing bonus. If you are level 50 healer and have 35 spec healing. What healing spells get a bonus?

OK VERY last thing.

I realize some of you might be new to the idea of spec bonuses and penalties, and how they may apply to the other schools, so i will answer that as well.

Augment also has a similar 25% bonus/penalty for high/low aug. buffs will produce more or less af/statistic dependant upon this.

Pacification has NO bonus OR penalty for high/low speccing. This is partly due to the fact that all pacification spells have level based resistances, not spec based. In a nutshell, a 50 mend healer stuns mobs just as well as a 50 pac healer. the pac healer will have longer area effect duration stun/mezzes, but whether or not a monster or person resists the spell is dependant upon the level of the caster versus the level of the mob/invader. This is why it is harder to mez purple mobs than green mobs. The state of your pac skill has nothing to do with whether you are resisted or not. Your single target mez will last over a minute by the time you are 50 even with no pac skill at all. A third rank mana buff is pretty necessary though.

As for why there is no spec bonus or penalty to pac, i think the designers decided we didnt need our already long mezzes boosted by 25% with all the negative mez hype. It would be interesting to learn whether the other realms have bonuses to thier sleep type spells, such as the theurgist mez which is in a school of magic that assuredly has spec bonuses to the nukes therein.
one more thing
# Mar 28 2002 at 1:48 PM Rating: Default
Oh one last thing, Distance has a direct effect upon aggro. This means that if you cast from just within spell range you can get away with more aggro than if you were close to the mob and within easy reach. Tried tested and true, this is an important tidbit of information to big mend healers everywhere.
Mending Explained
# Mar 28 2002 at 1:46 PM Rating: Default
READ THIS.

Mend has a spec bonus of up to 25% for having mend at your level. +Mend items DO count toward getting this bonus. Similarly, very low mend can give you a PENALTY of up to 25% to your heals.

So, taking the 46 Skill Based Emendation (Friend regains 231 HP) and adding 25%, you get a heal that heals for 288. Stretched out over your DAOC lifetime, you spend 25% less mana than other healers.

Your two big spec point heals will ALWAYS cast with a 25% bonus, no matter your mend skill. This is a bone thrown to those who do not spec into mend so they can still heal when thier first two baseline level given heals become riddled with healing variance, which is the form the 25% penalty for low mend takes. Yet while this helps, your spec heals will always be the lower level kind that do not heal for much in the first place, and you are missing out on a higher spec heals with the 25% bonus, such as this....

41 Healer Greater Reconstruction (Friend regains 549 HP) +25% bonus equals a 686 heal.

Nice, eh?

The numbers you see here at allakhazam's are the "ground zero" numbers from the shift-I info from the game. Apply your own penalty/bonus as needed.

p.s. for the poster who said
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
"Also, I find myself not using the biggest heals much of the time. Usually go back to the more mana efficient smaller heals except for emergencies. What good is a heal that restores more hits than your tank has?"
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

1. Healers are a grouping class. the bigger the group, the higher the con of the mobs you are hunting must be for the group to get good experience. This means 8 man groups must fight high reds/low purples, which hit for a bonus against your lower level tanks.

2. I am fighting mobs that double attack for 250 points and single hit around 500 points at level 45. Gods know what the mobs i fight at 50th level will do for damage.

3. If you do not spec mending, the baseline heals that work fine at lower levels wont be worth a crap at higher levels with the spec penalty applied for low mend, leaving you forced to use what mana inefficient big spec heals you have obtained for the 25% bonus just to stay afloat. Right now your mend is near your level, a gap that will widen as you level higher and mend falls further behind. This also means that speccing mending at early levels will ensure you get the 25% bonus to heals and keep it til you hit 50. It IS a trap for people who want to be healers without spending the points, such as smite clerics. Most of them cant heal well at all and thier tanks complain.

In short, i recommend a MINIMUM of 35 mend for healers. You will still have room to get a 38 pac for the ae mez/stuns and a 15 aug for second run buff if you wish. For those who want even more mending power, 42 mend, 17 aug, 29 pac is a good template with the second rank damage add and run buff with the first rank single target insta mez/stun. Try http://daoc.catacombs.com/ and look in the lower left sidebar for the character generator to plot your spec point path.

Haste was recently nerfed to nearly half its former strength. Constitution buff has been moved from spec line to level based line. The resist buffs require very high aug to get the useful spells, and are part of your twenty buff limit. So many Healers of midgard forsake augment for the more useful mending and pac. Soloing is very slow and boring compared to grouping anyway.

29 Shammy spell
# Dec 01 2001 at 8:37 PM Rating: Default
I reached lvl 29, and my skill based lvl 29 spells are, (according to this site) Minor Restoration, (which i did get) and Greater Sedation,Which i did NOT get, both under same category in spells, Did anyone else have this problem, if so, Did you ever get the Sedation spell? Any help is greatly appreciated.
And does anyone else think, Shammy's got robbed compared to most other classes?

YES they are. Shamens are the worst class in the game.. DAoC hates the Shammy, probably because EQ had them as strong characters.

What im curious about is the shaman line of Fungal Regeneration...which taken to it's apparent highest skill level of 35 buffs the group 108 hp per cycle.

I like the sound of that very much. What concerns me is the listed duration of 30 seconds. This seems awfully short. Is this the correct duration or a baseline figure? If correct then this is intended to be cast just prior to each melee.

Any Shamans out there with a spec of 26 - 35 who have used this spell?

Would love to hear some thoughts on this.

Thanks

Cycle in DAoC far as I know is 5 seconds. 5/30=6, so this spell cycles 6 times in the 30 second duration. Group can have 8 people in it. 8*6=48. So that's 48 times total that hp's are being buffed up 108 points. 48*108=5184
Over 5 thousand hp's from one spell, potentially. I don't think that's underpowered.

The ammount it heals is modified by your mending spec level as well. While im unsure of the exact numbers I can tell you from experiance that its enough that it keeps my 45th level beserker from needing any other heals when fighting orange conning monsters and only minimal heals figthing red and low purple conning monsters.

As we all get closer to level 50 you should be very cautious as to where you put your points so that you don't accidentaly make yourself useless. I think it's pretty apparent that most healers are going the Mending/Pacification line as I myself have decided to go. I leave the buffing for the shamans and take control of the healing and mezzing. At about level 30 you should decide what you're going to specialize in because nobody needs a healer that can't outbuff a shaman or outheal that 'other' healer your group will find to replace you.

I worked out a few of the points spreads and figured some might be interested in seeing how the points distribute and which spells are best. I'm level 35 now and have 27 mend, 15 aug, 15 pac with 14 points leftover. If you're going mend/pac, don't put more than 15 into aug.. but you may want to have at least 15 into aug so that you can run fairly quickly. It may save your life as well as save you time. "I" feel that the best points spread for me is one of two things.

Mending 42
Aug 15
Pac 21 <----- Scenario A
leftover points 23
Or
Mending 40
Aug 15 <----- Scenario B
Pac 25
Leftover points 12

What does A get you? Mending: Mega heals, your guild will rely on you for 100% health rez's and mega heals for the warriors. Aug: Ghetto speed. Yeah its not skald fast, but its better than walkin. Pac: Enemy attack speed 25% debuff. No third power regen.

What does B get you? Mending: Great heals, 100% health rez's (you will barely make it to this). Pac: Same ghetto speed. Pac: Third line of power regen. At level 35 i am already seeing a power slowdown. It seems i have enough power that i'm having to wait for power to come back.. the second line of power regen just isn't cutting it.

I hope this may help some in deciding where to go with their points, or at least where you may end up when you hit 50.

more points
# Nov 06 2001 at 4:36 AM Rating: Decent
IMHO, i believe they should give healers a bit more points, allowing them to fully spec in two lines...wouldn't be unfair since they're massive aggro magnets anyway, especially RvR...anyway, rock on healers....
Um, haste?
# Nov 02 2001 at 12:50 PM Rating: Default
When specializing don't forget that Healers are the ONLY class in Midgard with haste (attack speed buff). I haven't been playing DaoC all that much, but if haste in DaoC is even half as important as it was in EQ this is something to seriously consider...
Free Heals?

Hey,

Can someone who has gotten high enough in the Mending skill to get two of the "Free Heal" spells give me some info please?

I'm wondering, as you get more of these free heals, do they replace the older version like so many of the mage spells do, or are they more like the bard shouts? Where you can have multiple shouts hotkey'd? I'm thinking the free heal won't be so great if you only get one every 20minutes, if however you get to keep the older versions...that would be very very nice.

Thanks,
Tinywulf.
RE: Free Heals?
# Dec 06 2001 at 6:01 PM Rating: Default
They replace the previous, yes. So at any time you will only have two instas, the single target one and the group one.

Full spec vs. partial spec
# Oct 28 2001 at 7:42 PM Rating: Default
Now that Mythic has added the spec point bonus at the half-level marker from levels 40-50, gimping characters by speccing fully in a line seems harder to do. Besides, if a caster does not spec fully in one line or other some of the best, most potent spells in the game will never be used, which will nail certain types of characters both in RvR and PvE. A wizard with specs evenly distributed between 3 schools will start to hurt badly post 40, the damage just won't keep up with monster strength.

Another example, if a Healer does not spec at least to 40 in mending, they will never get the top resurrection. What could cause more havoc in RvR battles that a resurrection to 100% health? Healers that can do that will be rare, but highly prized. They will be weaker overall, but when you're defending a relic fort and you're hiding around corners anyway, rezzing people as needed, it hardly matters. Take him/her to 50 in mend, and you'll be able to heal mad damage in a pitched RvR fight. Of course pacification and augmentation are critical, a guild would do well to have several healers with different spec paths to suit their needs. I'd rather have a full healer and a full pacifier in my group at level 50 than 2 healers specced partially in each.

I plan to spec fully in mending until I get the full rez, then I'll probably start dropping those extra points into my pac line. I'll decide later on though, depending how things look that far down the line.
Newer heals not always better?
# Oct 27 2001 at 1:15 AM Rating: Default
What am I missing? Why do some heals heal less than lower level versions, e.g.: Minor Amel vs Reconst. I can understand that you may not always use a big heal, but then wouldn't you just use a lower-level version? It's disappointing to get a new spell that isn't useful. I've heard rumours that smaller heals are versions that don't generate aggro or or much more mana efficient, but they were just hearsay...
RE: Newer heals not always better?
# Oct 29 2001 at 1:50 PM Rating: Default

# Oct 24 2001 at 12:48 PM Rating: Default
Not sure if I am a fan of super specilization in this game. The cost of moving up a tree too far is a lot because of the increased cost at each level.

By neglecting augmentation your tanks are weaker, take more damage, and do less damage. By neglecting pacification you have weak mob control.

Have you ever seen a healer stunned orange or higher monster get nuked down to near death before he even gets close enough to damage a group?

Also, I find myself not using the biggest heals much of the time. Usually go back to the more mana efficient smaller heals except for emergencies. What good is a heal that restores more hits than your tank has?

Just an alternative opinion no offense.

Healers that want to maximize their healing ability should go straight mending. You won't get some of the nice additional buffs, but your healing skill will show the benefits nice and early. A few levels of mending can make the difference between 50 points of healing at the lower levels.
