And to be fair whm was already too dumbed down, so this just seems like it will be the dirt on the coffin, so to speak. They could have taken the cooldown off from cleric, and I'd have been ok with that. It would have helped a bit, because people often try to switch early, and it misses because it's on cooldown. I think people end up in the wrong stance because of this cooldown situation quite a bit. Eliminating cleric just ruins healing for me. I'll most likely be leaving xiv because of this decision, but I understand that the majority of players are casual, and will most likely enjoy it. When I saw bahamuth my jaw dropped omg I wanna play again but still can't at the moment I miss this game best mmorpg I played. Full movement returned to Bard, my only concern is will there be a slight dps decrease again even with WM being a steady buff instead of a stance? I guess the mobility is nice to have back.
Wm dps is getting increased now mind increases there healing and dps amount. Lol still dps of whm is irrelevant because they heal and can't ever que as a dps. Not if you're doing Hunts and Fates. FFXIV Gil Defense sucks for healers. They need to have some independence and DPS helps. Especially during DPS checks in dungeons with a random party. Not everyone is geared and for newer players it can be challenging to stack high numbers. tl;dr - adding damage to healers is a plus and encouraged. WM is Wanderer's Minuet, not white mage. Yeah, I'm talking WM. Since that means auto-attacks will be back, I'm assuming Bard(I would assume MCH too) may get some slight damage nerfs to compensate for all that mobility being back. I guess we won't know till SB drops and we are at 70 to see what changes.
Not looking forward to being the mechanic sponge on top of being the lowest damage just because I can run around. I main as WHM and missed the LL. Cleric Stance is becoming a buff now?? Does that mean it'll have a cooldown, and have to be recast, or is it constant like it has always been??? It has a cool down. Your damage is base off you Mind now. so from now on you'll do damage constantly as if you had cleric stance on. Cleric stance now just boost your dps out put for a little bit. think of it as a Healer blood for blood or something.
