    Maybe not exactly equal in heals but not far from one another. In EQ it was a joke how much better clerics were at healing and VR seems intent on making sure that isn't the case here as they want the classes able to competently fulfill their primary role pretty much all the time.

     

    The other difference was that both of the partial healers in EQ (Sham and Dru) had a ton more random utility abilities than the cleric did.  I am okay with multiple classes able to heal equally if they all have equally useful other utility abiltiies.  Otherwise it leaves clerics as a gimped pure healer only type compared to the other two.

     

    Which is currently a significant concern for clerics as from what we have seen thus far the other two healers bring notably more group utility.

    I kinda wish Gnomes could be Clerics, as its the only healing class that remotely suits them - Pantheon Clerics are not so much "holy priests" as "learned scholars who have attuned to ancient relics".  Compared to Druid (nature) and Shaman (spiritual), the Gnomes just don't have a lot going for them since there's not an Arcane healing class.  They also have no tanking class, so they are SOL on two essential party roles.

    It mostly depends on how they balance the healers, imo.  If all the healers are more or less competent, than it works.  If it's Cleric > all, then it may not work so great.
