I’ve been in the mood to blog again lately, but didn’t really feel any particular game calling my name to write a guide. I wrote my Hearthstone Guide mostly out of my desire to write something. But, as this week was the release of Wildstar, and my wife decided she wanted to get back into gaming, we jumped right in. As always, that meant it was time to roll tons of characters to experience all of the different classes, and so far I enjoy it quite a bit.
As I’ve been neck deep in Wildstar PvP the last couple of days, it got me interested in looking up guides on some of the other classes to see which class I might want to try out next, and that’s when I noticed that guide writers haven’t changed much from when I first got into WoW several years ago. People still tend to write guides directly solely at max level, with little to no attention paid to helping people get there in the first place. Telling people how to play as a healer at level 50 is great for end game and all, but how are those people supposed to heal on the way to level 50, before all of those spells, AMPs, and equipment become available? That’s what I aim to tell you.
In this first installment of the Medic Healer, I’m going to help you figure out how to be the best little medic healer you can be up to level 14. At that point you’re likely to get sucked into Housing for so long that you’ll forget how to play your character by the time you’re finished, and you’ll need to come read this again to remind yourself. And by that time, I just might have the level 15-30 guide ready to help you along for the rest of it.
