DDOcast – A DDO Podcast for Fans by Fans!

Imagine a DDOCast where three people spend most of the episode talking about ways to play a dedicated healer.

No, it is not 2010. It is today, a DDO era where dedicated healers are rare and even epic elite raids are often run with no dedicated healers at all.

I felt like I was in a bit of a time warp.

But nonetheless, there we were, talking about the best ways to perform this lost art. And we did come up with some good tips, even if you are not planning to be primarily-healing you will likely find something of use in here somewhere.

Just to be clear, I love dedicated healers. We still have one in our guild, one player who is always on a cleric at some level or other, and her awesome healing skills are often the difference between Halfling Commando success or failure. My Gamer Girl has a capped cleric too, and plays it very well when we are in appropriate content.

I love our healers, we have the best ones there are. But even they will admit they are a vanishing breed. Seeing one is like catching a glimpse of a distant unicorn; everyone wants to but no one really gets to.

Maybe episode 347 of DDOCast will help reverse this trend. The game would definitely benefit from having more players roll up healers.

So there. Go listen. And then roll up a healer.
