Healer in fh

Post by Fafnir » Sun May 31, 2009 8:15 pm

When you click both a champion who is almost immune to the shower of rocks and a mid level healer who can become kia almost instantly if you don't keep a constant attention you know why most use only pocket healers.

They use pocket healers so they can keep all the coins imho.

Fafnir, if a mystic can survive in fh, a mid-level healer can survive in fh.

is this thread in answer to a post in another thread?

Having CW with Healers, most don't know how to do it. CWing is a pretty safe activitiy, yet I constantly find Healers hiding behind me instead of working to increase the coinrate.

Wander the snell. Valley run stuff if it's really busy. Lure stuff to the Fighter. Two exiles in an open snell looking to simply coin it out might not even see each other very much, if it's done right.

Agree that greed is often a factor. Speed is another.

A healer non über can survive but will be kia in two seconds if he isn't permanently on the look out where a much younger fighter hasn't that to worry. Beside since only the large wendies are worth tagging and of course it will be much more difficult he will bring close to no exp to the leader.

If I had that experience it's because I was invited by an über rather generous on money.

It's strange that so few are able to talk on such a simple aspect reasonably but only flak.

You just failed the hunt.
If it's a CW hunt, there's no tagging. That's a different kind of hunt. Not saying there aren't infinite combinations of hunt types, but if the point is cash the best way to get cash is clear the snell as of coin-bearing critters as fast as possible.

FH is a particularly difficult area. Big spawns. Small areas. Rock throwing critters. There's no way to avoid being hit.

Large wendies in FH? I don't think I've ever seen one. Are we talking about the same place?

But it is uncommon for there to be taggers on a coin hunt. Taggers slow down coinrate.

I doubt a Champ is hunting FH for xp.

If there's a fighter coining, with a healer along, it's not so that the healer can tag.

"I doubt a Champ is hunting FH for xp."

Gustave get kills with a few vanqs at FH. Of course to join a hunt is extremely difficult.

Large midnight wendy. Not too uncommon. Can be pretty tough, my fighter was ages away of soloing one when he did FH easily with one midbie healer. FH needs attention, gotta dodge the pebble rains etc. But else, a midbie healer is very welcome. Off lately I hunted it for exp a couple times. Often some mixture, coiny expy.

I'm brought along fairly regularly, and Geo yells at me if I fail to dodge a pebble. I'm sure if I tried tagging I'd not be invited again. I'm a healer, I'm invited along to heal, not whiff for hours at something that's chewing through the fighter.
Normal is just a stereotype.

In another life, I run into Large Midnight Wendies regularly....6 on one snell last night alone. My other life usually goes healer-less and with plenty of PF to get in and out. The healer-less isn't because I don't like healers, it's often that HWC's is called away at any moment for any number of minutes to hours and it's not fair to others to risk their lives for a hunt that may begin but not end for hours and sometimes days. I can't think of a better option I'm afraid.

On the upside, HWC's tries to be generous w/ his coins to make up for not always asking a healer along.

The foothills is good coins for anyone with the skea (about 150) for it. There's plenty of coins to go around with good spawns. I often take 4 or 5 people with me, and I don't like having to resort to a double-clicking healer, but if we do we leave him/her outside the rocked areas. In general, the healers are pretty good about keeping their health up. Last time a healer fell I just warned her about the previous thing. She blew it off and fell about a minute later, hehe. She learned her lesson, and is much better about not getting rocked.

In any area with rocks or webs there's some basics an exile has to follow. The most important of these is to keep their eyes up on the screen, not talk a lot if they don't touch type, and basically pay attention. Do these three things and you should be fine.

I do FH hunts for two reasons...

1/ Coin hunt. If solo I just run back to TC everytime I get low on health. If with a decent healer can do great amount of coining in short amount of time. I almost never double click. The only time I do is when I fall solo and no other healer available to save me or there are no other healers on at the time to help.

2/ Exp hunt with younger players. If you can get 2-3 fighters who get vanqs in the area, this can be a good experience hunting area.
