    So, who's planning to play a channeler? Post some info for those of us who can't stand to read the official forums.
    It's only weird if it doesn't work.

    So, are you trying to imply that a raid of 19 channelers, 1 tank and 4 bards will NOT WW1st the new Expansion?

    So should I betray my Warden and/or Templar or leave them, while also completely ignoring the Channeler?

    Channelers are basically shamans, but remove the wards and add a pet that intercepts ~35% of the damage on the tank with one stance/buff and ~20% of the damage on the group with the other stance/buff. Then a permanent buff reactive that heals then for 75% of the remaining 65%/80% damage that they actually took.

    Instant cast group rez with a 30 second recast, downside is it only works on allies within 5 meters, and they have no other in combat rezzes.

    I think the dissonance mechanic could've been done better but whatever. It basically lets you only cast 1-2 dissonance cost abilities every 5-6 seconds, and if you go over that you severely fuck yourself. If you hit red you're not getting out unless your dissonance remove temp is up (~3m recast when capped) or you cancel all your dissonance-cost buffs and wait 40 seconds. Dissonance abilities include all pet heals, a few nukes, some utility shit, second group cure, only single target heals that the class has.

    Class is going to be good for tank healing, that's about it. Channeler/Warden, Shaman/Warden, Druid, Fury. Add another non-druid healer for the second healer in g3 when you need 4 tanks.

    Really not great. Furies continue to be king, melee priests all took a large hit while furies just got even better than they were. SOE seems to think Channelers are high dps for some reason but it's probably something like Amazing Furies > Templar's Divine Light > Good Furies > Bad Furies > Wardens/Mystics/Inqs > Defilers > Channelers > Templars

    Templar's Divine Light?

    Aren't Templars supposed to suck at DPS?
