    Ah yeah if it was a stream then I'll just take your word for it. I'd never expect someone to search through that much banter just to find him saying one thing.

    Threads/Post are far easier to track down than, "blah blah blah blah blah blah...by the way powers will stack one day...blah blah blah blah blah" ;).

    yea it would suck trying to find the right stream. but its not really about powers stacking its more about preventing the powers from over writing each other. so two powers of the same type can both be in a raid and they wont cancel each other out the only issue most would claim with that is two pot tics but personally I dont have a problem with it trolls hate just being batterys anyway and all our powers give back power now anyway would free them up to debuff more and control like they are ment to do.

    but as others in this thread have stated im not the only one who watched it were it was said they are working on it

    Fixed that for you :p.

    I for one never ever minded being a "blue bar healer". I loved it when I actually had to challenge myself on keeping people's power bars from being empty. Weapon Mastery killed that for me. Main reason I left for a few months and since I've come back I avoid PVE like the plaque if I can help it. Only reason I'm playing the game now is to PVP.

    PVP is what always brings me back when i take a break but you are in the minority as far as the power issue

    LMAO....are you really trying to say that powers cancel because of the ps3??

    Now I've heard it all....I can die a happy man. Thank you kind sir.

    Could anyone grab or post a video of this in action?

    I'm not 100% sure of this but maybe have a look into this as well:
    DPS and healer circles overwrite as well apparantly.
    Not sure if just a rumor, but a DPS was claiming he lost dots out of this (Perhaps the extra dots on the PI)
    Same with shard of life.

    IMO (which counts for very little) all powers should stack. I shouldn't have to worry about overwriting someone's damage or heals or power out just because we have the same power. It seems a bit (and by 'a bit' I mean extremely) foolish to me. I can't tell you how many times I've seen pugs kick someone because they have the same power as a higher level in the group.
    But, again, this is just me, and this post is worth what you've paid to read it.
    Happy Smashing All!
    :D

    CoP has always stacked as it has a cooldown that is as long as the effect. The effects that don't stack are generally ones that can be re-activated before the cooldown is up, which is most of them. We don't have a way to allow effect stacking from others without those effects also stacking from you at the same time. But the tech to allow this is in the backlog and we will have that capability some day, most likely some time in the new year, so one day multiple healers of the same type will be able to stack.

    I totally agree, no powers should overwrite just because they are the same. It makes no sense for this to happen especially as there are not that many to chose from, all this does is encourage ppl to kick

    What about stacking as DPS? :p

    Does it work...?

    I am tired of the 2h-is-exploit issue, so I need a new as-they-say-"exploitable" power to switch :D

    Grumpy shot me this in a PM not too long ago but this isn't the best video to demonstrate what's going on especially since it's from October:

    I can live with this as long as all powers are held to the same standard in capabilites. This does mean that sorcery is most definitely going to be by far and large the dominant healer in PvP for quite a while now.

    And here I was, thinking the reason Sorcery has *always* been preferred for PvP is its low-cost high-yield passive heals that work well in a stationary arena.

    AFAIK, if you're seeing an increase in Sorcery healers, it may be because pets weren't being stat-clamped properly:

    Looks like im going Sorc then

    And this is the issue :( Until they actually revamp the other healing powers to the same standards pretty much every competitive healer should be sorcery. Maybe electric.
