After messing and switching around a few roles and builds, do you realize that healing can satisfy you the most across all game modes? So how to become a better healer in New World?
Well, the most important thing is: DO NOT BURN STAM OUT OF PANIC.
Calling out who your heals are landing on + location in regards to the point. ie: top right, bottom left, bonfire, opposite bonfire. Saying if you can’t push up any further due to dex los or enemy kill squad making their rounds through the backline. Comm when you need help.
Comm as much as you can when it comes to your cooldowns. Also, don’t forget to throw a heal onto your friendly gauntlet mages and bbs, any single one or their abilities will slow your pursuers down.
A healer that can’t communicate is a healer with a lot of deaths. Or youre AoE.
This will come down to experience and overall game sense but try your best to hide in plain sight. Whether it be bushes, the enemy’s backline, find a position where enemy dex los and kill squad doesn’t check often. It's pretty fun finding the wacky spots you guys find in fort. And try to prepare as much New World Gold
And most important of all, when point starts to tick, that's when you’ll have to heighten your senses because that's when the kill squads come out to gut healers who are soley focusing point.
There are more things that make you good in New World:
Build suited for your role in wars
constantly observing your group health and prioritizing the correct targets when two or more drop at the same time
calling sacreds and crucial single Targets/calling sacred cd
Hotkey targeting with group mode off to heal outside your group when needed
Not burning all utility at once
Finding good spots where you have less pressure from Hunters
Calling for help when needed (utility on cd, too many enemies collapsing)
Awareness where your group is at all times
Calling when group is out of position or you notice relevant enemy November
Cancelling casts when heal is not needed anymore
Starting the casttime and then selecting the correct target as it saves time
Hope this helps.
