Healers: Unsung Healers
No, you can't log in and play a healer in Vanguard: Saga of
Heroes just yet...unless you're one of the lucky few who's beta testing the
game. But we've got a guide to healing, nonetheless. Medeor discusses what
it takes to play a winning healer in an MMO, complete with sports metaphors.
If you're considering a healing class for Vanguard, you'll want to give his
humorous guide a read.
"Have you picked up on the connection between those sports
positions I mentioned and the healing character types? It lies in the fact
that if the person playing the position does the job perfectly, nobody
notices. If I snapped the football to the place kicker and he kicked a 50
yard field goal, the kicker got all the glory. Similarly, if I heal
perfectly during a boss mob kill, we continue rolling through the dungeon as
if nothing happened. Now if I snap the ball over the punter's head and the
other team runs it back for a touchdown, well...that might be equivalent to
a full raid wipe."
