Hello, my friend and I are looking to get back into an MMO that has both competitive PvP (ranked/rated) but also a true healer class. We've played basically every game and are pretty sure the only 2 MMO's that have real, competitive PvP are WoW and TERA.
Hoping that some person or people here can answer a few questions about them to help us decide! We appreciate any answers, even if you can only answer 1 question, but please only respond if you actually know the answer (rather than speculation or what you've heard 2nd hand). Thanks!
1) The last time we played (back in Cataclysm) 2v2 arena was basically broken. Healer/DPS VS Healer/DPS often ended in a 45 minute draw, and 2v2 didn't have access to many rewards anyway. Is this still the case? We like 3v3 arena as well but would love if 2v2 was like Burning Crusade again.
2a) Is it still necessary to level up 2x Professions to get their bonuses for arena? Like gemcrafter used to allow you to use a couple better gems, etc. Not a huge deal just curious because Archaeology was insanely annoying and boring.
2b) Related to 2a above - Can you basically level and gear up entirely doing PvP? Don't want to have to raid in order to get PvP gear or anything ridiculous like that.
1) Did they ever add more lower level Battlegrounds to this game? The level grind was soooo boring in TERA, only option was to do mind-numbing quests because Dungeons gave basically no XP. They added 1 zerg battleground I think for like level 40+ last time I looked but we didn't care for it at all. Have they added more battlegrounds for lower levels since then?
2) How is the gear grind for rated PvP? Can you get a full set of the best maxed out PvP gear just by doing a reasonable amount of PvP, or is it still crazy PvE grind every day for a year to be able to afford the stuff for enchanting/masterwork/etc.? We loved the combat in TERA but the grind was one of the worst in MMO's, wondering if this changed.
