PSA: Companion Healing Getting You Down? This Solution Will Amaze You

swtor healing

Do you play a healer in SWTOR? Whether you are a healer man, someone who just rolled one to check it out, someone who made one to fill a need in your guild, or even someone who dislikes healer, you should give this lighthearted post a read.

This post by wadewilsonmd might give you a chuckle. You can see the post made over on Reddit and if you read through the comments, you’ll also see where wage explains why the post was made:

Obviously can’t speak for everyone, but I jokingly made this post because all I do is level healers (well I’ve got a few DPS that I’m leveling now that I’ve got my healers past the class stories) and never got caught up in the companion nerf hubbub. I find the experience to be a lot of fun, but in the same way healing isn’t for everyone, neither is leveling healing.

Obviously, not everyone loves playing/leveling a healer. I mained heals in several MMORPGs I played long term (like WoW) so when I came to SWTOR initially, I wasn’t interested in healing. Eventually, I tried it out because I wanted to see how it played and compare it to healing in other MMOs but when I first started SWTOR, I was just burnt out on healing, period.

I have friends who play healers in every game they play and they never seem to get the burn out so I suppose it depends on things like personality and playstyle. Some people feel like playing heals endgame is fun but the level grind is boring. Different strokes for different folks, as they say.

What about you? Do you main heals? Hate leveling a healer? Love it? We want to know so leave us a comment.
