I've always liked hybrid characters. GW2 I don't attribute to creating that subset.
Based on your choices and not your title, I had to go with hybrid.
I like playing a damage and healer caster being average at both but able to solo just fine. I like to pickup in the rare times I do group and do what's needed, someone losing health - boom heal, creature in some phase, drop some dots and try to interrupt. Changing what I do makes me engaged in the fight, I don't want a rotation as pure dps or pure healing. I don't want to do 1, 3, 2, 1, repeat I want to think about my moves.
Playing a character where I can't heal or CC I feel defenseless, big armor is not enough for me, I need panic buttons and RNG for misses or parry and block aren't my thing. It's a loss of control of the character. I want to use a skill and SEE health return with a real number behind it, no misses or chances.
