Which MMORPG offers the best healing experience?

Post by TheHidden01 on Fri Mar 04, 2016 2:55 pm



In light of the epic reveal of Revival’s graphic healing system this week, I thought Massively OP reader Fenryr Grey’s recent question to our community was on point:

“In my opinion, MMO players, especially the ones coming from action games have a huge emphasis on DPS, and since those people are the majority in most modern MMOs, the market shifted toward DPS mechanics. But healing and support mechanics have come to seem rather dull or basic by comparison. Is healing an outdated role? Are there MMOs with engaging heal or support mechanics?”

A few years ago, I argued that the loss of “mezzer” ground to the “deeps” and the trinity shift from tank/healer/mezzer to tank/healer/deeps was partly a result of improving AI and partly a result of solo-friendly gameplay, but I’m with Fenryr in missing support classes. Healers are usually all we can look forward to, and even if you do enjoy making the bars go up, it’d be nice to see something a bit more engaging.

So which MMOs offer the best healing (and support) experience in 2016?
