OK I know warriors arent healers. I dont mean healing in the sense of healing a raid or in a group setting. I want to heal while i level like every single other class can so I reduce my downtime.

1. every leveling rogue specs 13 points into Riftstalker for rift scavenger. The healing from this is awesome I leveled my rogue to 50 in almost no time at all with just those 13 points and using a heavy Blade dancer build. Even bard will easily let you level to 50 just using the motif.

2. on to mages. Most mages level as warlock/necro. for accidental "OH **** pulls" where you end up with 4-5 mobs on you just hit Mortality and BAM back to full health. Then you also have soul purge from necro which heals for sick amounts and lets you tank anything in the face. Or if you dont like necro/lock you can choose any other 2 souls and then chloro for your third soul, put only 8 points and you get an instant heal every 10 seconds.

3. Clerics...well obviously they have heals but even all their DPS souls can still heal ridiculously well. Going full Inq you still pick up sentinel so you have their insta heal as well as the HoT from warden not to mention Harsh Discipline. Druids can still heal while leveling. Sure the faerie is a joke but when I leveled a new cleric after rerolling Defiant her heals were more than enough to top me off as I moved from mob to mob. Duracell build....ROFL.

4. Warriors????? OK BM gets a gimp heal at 25 because none of their stats make it scale. Paladins get a complete heal every 5 mins not really that useful for grinding. Reaver healing was nerfed through the ground so not worth mentioning.

So why are warriors the only class who cant reliably self heal while leveling?

That seems to work fine for me. The general idea is we wear plate so we are tougher?? I never figured it out and my best guess is they would have add or completely re design a soul that we would obviously figure out how to exploit if we wanted to heal.

1.4.5 patch was worst patch I have seen in a mmo in a long time because it nerfed our damage across the board making us completely useless in pvp.

When I leveled my warrior I did it as RB/Reaver/Paladin with a sword and shield... so the pitiful damage I was taking was made up for by my pitiful reaver healing...

Since then they've wrecked that build....hardcore

There isn't a whole lot you can do unfortunately. Just keep your pulls under control and drink things.

Ya, I tried messing around with Reaver on my warrior alt (level 19/20) and it wasn't really all that substantial for healing, though it's possible that might improve in 5-6 levels or so. Main thing while leveling is kill fast so that your enemies don't have time to kill you and bring lots of health pots and drinks when you head out to save the world, or go for a paladin and/or RB builds and kill slow as **** but have the benefit of a bit more healing.

I leveled to 42 during the beta as a pally tank build but ditched that for leveling when the game launched and worked my way to 50 as a champion build with a tank build on the side for dungeons.
