Thanks! Only level 1? Wow. You'r much more dps-support SO, right? (it's obviously)
I'm trying to be a full support, healer in a raids, parties, no much experience for now.
That's the sad thing to me. ._. I made my SM with support-heal hybrid in mind.. before AoV, my DPS skills (other than Immunity, which I used for the heal) were level 1, and I leveled the links/buffs/some heals. Then again, even then, I generally tried to support-through-low-DPS via SoulLink:Revive (heals everyone that's linked for every crit) and Immunity (when in form, rainbow burst heal). Great think about link is that Restoration crits proc the heal, too, and if you're in a clump of people, that's all the higher chance of it..
Cure is just so overpowered right now that anything more than level 1 feels overkill, and there haven't been parties where I've actually needed restoration.. I bumped Mental Breakdown to level 5 since I've found it's great for grinding (I mob 5-15 things at a time), though even level 1 felt decent enough. Only skills I really use are Cure (get 3 level 1 stacks), Death Spell (after I've ran in a circle to gather my mob), and Mental Breakdown (it's like shoving the mob into a blender).
When I level with a partner, I actually don't even really use Cure, but instead have max SoulLink:Revive up, which heals us both on crits (we both know about how far away from each other we can get without breaking link). If I need to, it's pretty easy to get Cure stacks up quickly (links broke, or didn't crit enough to really cover HP), or sometimes I'll toss a level 1 Restoration at the end of a mob to top off our HP.
