OP  3/23/13 8:39:54 PM#1

Just got to level 15 as a Cleric, my first beta weekend.  Was really enjoying the game, then I ran the Clocktower Dungeon (first 5-man dungeon) and realized that there is absolutely no need for a Healer since Potions are 1) extremely easy to get 2) far more powerful than any Cleric heal (including in Divinity mode) and 3) have nearly no cooldown.  Since there was absolutely no need for me to heal, even during boss fights, I felt more like a gimped DPS character with a bit of support options.

 

My question is: does this change later on in the game?  Or is the entire game, including dungeons, easily doable just spamming potions with no need for a healer?  Perhaps someone who was able to do some of the higher level content as a Cleric in the last beta weekend could give me their perspective.  Do Cleric heals eventually become stronger than potions?  I've really enjoyed the rest of Neverwinter so far, but for the same reason I never played and have no desire to play GW2, I want to play as a Healer role, not as a DPS support hybrid. 

 

Thanks!

to my understanding potions won't be cheap with in game money and thus a cleric will be nice to have.  As you said not needed though.  Personally I would always want to bring one just to avoid having to use potions on traps alone.

The Critical Hit Pretzel!

They do have value to a group. I do believe potions do have a CD and at the same time it can be expected things can always shfit to make them less 'viable' as not having a healer. As far as the game seems, it tries to push in making roles not 'needed' though being very helpful in gameplay. You aid the group while also being able to do damage which isn't bad and can make up for it a good bit.  It just (for me) feels far better syngery wise then GW2 pushed it, though at the same time I do see how it can be viewed negatively which truthfully, I'm not 100% sure on.

 

In DnD a healer did more then heal though at the same time people didn't have potions to chug, so perhaps some balancing will be done to make it more helpful whether its limiting the potions you can use or other means. Over-all its a 'wait and see', till then keep up playing cleric if you enjoy it. I don't think anyone will have a problem with you doing a bit less damage if your able to give healing to the group.

Keep in mind it appears that clerics have numerous bugs this go around.

1) Aggro for healing is borked.

2) Items are not boosting damage or healing.

They also intentionally nerfed cleric's heals to themselves in that they receive ~50% healing from their own heals.

Keep in mind this is beta.

Cheers!

Well in NW you have to think clerics as shadow priest in wow. You can do alot of healing with damage. In fact 4 skills do that so the higher your dps the higher you heal. This aspect I love in gaming so if I was to play this long term I can see being a beast. Once you understand the method behind it you can rule it.

like chloro healing in Rift.. by far my favorite healing soul in rift:)

1) Your topic is misleading. Neverwinter does have a healer, you're playing as 1.

2) Healing is actually important in dungeons from what I've seen. Potions definitely help (and need to be used), but they have a cooldown, and people still end up dying if they start getting hit. Infact my last clocktower run the tank died, and some of our DPS would have if I didn't get a few clutch stuns off when they needed a heal.

Clerics often get asked for (even today) to run with groups. They are still one of the most in-demand classes in the game, along w/ the Guardian. They are actually pretty badass in this game. It might be harder to tell at earlier lvls, but as you start doing more difficult stuff they get more and more necessary. Even with potions you won't see Trickster Rogues taking damage that easily =P.

No reason to think pots will be any different in beta vs live. I hope you don't hit too many traps.

The healing is weak, not quite GW2 weak, but well under your run of the mill mmo cleric.

In later levels, healing becomes more important.  Level 1-20 are kind of like a tutorial/solo game.  After level 20 the difficulty gets ramped up and a good healer is hard to come by.

Make worlds not stories

3/23/13 10:30:42 PM#10

Tried my first instance today as cleric, hoping to do my role as healer.

I have enjoyed the game as a solo experince so far, but when it came to doing my role as a healer, the game failed with several issues:

1. Heal aggro is messed up, everything went for me even on really small heal.

2. de-aggro skills ? tank taunting skills ? Are there any ?

3. targeting other players for heals was a nightmare with that fast paced combat, because you cant target people other than mouseover.. mouse that is blocked by mobs, players moving around too fast etc.

 

Im sure aggro will get fixed as that is just a matter of some tweaking, but I am a bit concerned about targeting and aggro management, as it that seem like a more fundamental problem.

Real class role distinctions are needed, but while pvp and paced action pulls in the other direction, I am having my doubts to be honest.. Time will tell.

But at the same time, I have this "yes a real massive multiplayer online role playing game" feeling about it.

OP  3/24/13 12:43:33 AM#13

Some responses:

 

Yes I noticed healing aggro is broken this beta, I'm sure they'll fix that though.  I'm not really worried about that aspect.

 

Some people have mentioned the cooldown on potions.   Potions have no significant cooldown.  It ranges from between about 0 and 10 seconds - they can be spammed non-stop during the entire dungeon run, and are far, FAR more powerful than cleric healing.

 

I didn't know that items were also broken and not adding to damage and healing, perhaps with the additional healing from items it would make a difference.  Would need to be a fairly huge effect though, at minimum around a 200% increase.

 

Complaints about the lack of a true healing role aside, the potions are SO powerful and SO cheap and SO spammable, that the content just seems jokingly easy.  I can restore 100% of my entire HP bar every 10 seconds or less, instantly, using potions, making it impossible to die unless I'm fighting mobs 20 levels above me that 1-shot me.

 

Again, perhaps this changes later in the game and potions are no longer viable replacements to both Clerics and Challenge.   But they most certainly are now at my level, and that has me worried.

Yeah, they're a damage leech, direct heal hybrid.   I think they're fun too.  Currently I'm building Wis/Str, with Weapon Master and Repurpose soul for crit splash aoe healing.  The rest goes into attributes that buff divine power gain and action point gain.  I'm still not sure about paragon paths quite yet.  There are multiple options there.

I think a mind wipe so people could play an mmo like it was their first time again, would be easier to build than a new mmo people here would actually like. - DamonVile

I've done that one.  The best so far has been a mix of bottom and middle paths.

The companion you choose makes a huge difference too.  The dog and control wizard companions are good.

I meant for your Paragon Path, to take the bottom one. Feats for refilling your Divine Power bar, giving action points whenever an encounter power comes off cooldown and action points whenever you crit. 

 

I also like splashing into the top one to get an added heal to Prophecy of Doom (a dot which refills AP when it expires) and Rising Hope (decreases recharge time for encounter powers)

Classes are made to be more self sufficient in NW. You won't be just healing the tank constantly while he soaks up all the damage. It's action combat so things are expected to be more frantic.

OP  3/24/13 12:55:31 PM#20

My point was, TERA and GW2 both have "action combat" but TERA has traditional MMO roles.   You can't beat a 5-man dungeon boss without a tank, DPS, and a healer.  GW2 does not have these roles.

 

Neverwinter, in its current state, has an important Tank role, and DPS, but no healer role.  It is perfectly possible (and very easy) to beat a 5 man dungeon boss with no Cleric or Healer of any kind in the party, just using potions.

 

Some people may love this, some people may hate this.  But no matter your opinion, that's how the game is right now.  What I'd like to know is if that is going to change, either late-game or post-beta.
