    Default Honest question to Chloro's

    I have an honest question to all the Chloro's out there - Is your damage and healing supposed to be terrible?

    I'll admit, I have very little experience with Chloro's as I am a healer and my good friend is a bard so we never use one. Our mage is almost always deeps. Pugged into an xRD the other day. Tank was secretly parsing the fights. Not sure why you would but whatever. We wiped from DPS fail on the last boss 5 times. When the tank posted the parse for that fight the rogue and dps mage were both over 350, tank was at 92 and the Chloro was at 87. For heals I was at 397 or something and the chloro was at 75ish.

    Is this normal or was the dude a retard? Didn't seem normal to me and I said so. The guy got offended.

    Are you saying your total DPS was under 1k and it's the chloro's fault you failed?

    It's hard to break 400 on that fight. Do you know the fight? You are constantly switching targets and waiting on phase changes, you need to turn away at certain portions of the fight which makes it impossible to dps.

    The question was are Chloro's normally under the tank in DPS or was this dude just retarded. It's an honest question since I have no clue about Chloro's.

    This is a different question. If a Chloro is under the tank they're not healing effectively, or dpsing effectively. This guy is probably retarded, given the amount of detail you provided.

    My question is if DPS was the problem, why blame him for being Chloro and not ask him to swap to DPS?

    Edit:
    Also, changing targets won't change the DPS. Are your parse numbers only on Eliam or do they include the ghosts? Were people failing the turn away/fire, or was it just raw number fail?

    Wasn't me parsing it, was some random guy I was pugged with. I assume it was with ghosts and such but not sure. Either way I thought it was wierd that a Chloro would be under the tank in the DPS department. I'm just here asking about Chloro DPS since I have never really run with one before, is it supposed to be that low?

    No, it really should not be. Chloro healing is primarily through Lifegiving Veil and Synthesis, so in order to be effective as a healer a chloro needs to land a lot of Life-Based spells. Similarly, anything that improves spell damage for the chloro's life spells will improve their healing.

    I'm not sure about that specific fight, and I don't chloro often (was a healer in eq2, don't enjoy it that much anymore), but when I do chloro my heals are in line with 'for real' healers, 500-550 hps on tough fights, more if the whole group is taking damage. My dps is usually on the low side healing, probably 300ish.

    depending on fight a chloro should be doing somewhere from 200 to 400 dps
    ...if you have to turn away use a channeling spell 1st if possible

    200-400 is a good baseline. 75 is bad. HPS may or may not be effected by what spec the other healer ran, as there may not have bee much healing to do. DPS is the big benchmark. If your chloro is only doing 75 dps odds are they're not pushing damage buttons, so their healing is going to suck nuts.

    Idk about my DPS havent had my parser going for my Chloro, but Chloro healing can be pretty beastly.. I was in a group last night doing T2 CC on the third boss the cleric died near begining of fight she got a battle rez then died again and was out of fight so i was basicly solo healing it. Also for some of the trash after that the Cleric went DPS so i was solo healing alot of trash.

    Healing is deffinently not horrible for Chloro's, it can get pretty intense solo healing shit in T2 and undouable if you just suck but Chloro's are awesome healers imo. I'm going to parse my next T2 to see where it really is at.

    Thanks for the answers guys, like I said, I had no clue as to how much damage they are even supposed to put out but you all confirmed what I thought As far as the other healers spec I was the other healer running a modified version of the sentinel/purifier spec for that fight since I can mostly plant and not worry. It's, by far, the laziest spec known to man but only works on trash and bosses where you need to move once every 10 minutes.
