Just got to level 15 as a Cleric, my first beta weekend. Was really enjoying the game, then I ran the Clocktower Dungeon (first 5-man dungeon) and realized that there is absolutely no need for a Healer since Potions are 1) extremely easy to get 2) far more powerful than any Cleric heal (including in Divinity mode) and 3) have nearly no cooldown. Since there was absolutely no need for me to heal, even during boss fights, I felt more like a gimped DPS character with a bit of support options.
My question is: does this change later on in the game? Or is the entire game, including dungeons, easily doable just spamming potions with no need for a healer? Perhaps someone who was able to do some of the higher level content as a Cleric in the last beta weekend could give me their perspective. Do Cleric heals eventually become stronger than potions? I've really enjoyed the rest of Neverwinter so far, but for the same reason I never played and have no desire to play GW2, I want to play as a Healer role, not as a DPS support hybrid.
